 Description:   Extremely rare frog fossil, Rana Basaltica from the Yixian, Liaoning Province of China. 

The matrix is off white shale (fragile) size is 5.5 X 4.6″. Matrix has cracks around the edges but does not affect the specimen. The paraffin wax has moved away from the edges, because of temperature change but can be reset.

Hoptoad is from late Jurassic, middle Miocene.  The specimen measures 3.25 inches.  This was originally purchased for an investment from Brotherhood rocks and fossils in China.  It shows wonderful detail.  The legs show venation.  The distinct head thorax and abdomen are in superb condition.
