PERMIAN BRANCHIOSAURUS AMPHIBIAN ON MATRIX
PERIOD: 280 million years ago
The current laws in
this region of Germany now forbid the collection of these remarkable
fossils. Such legislation has permanently ended the supply of such
magnificent specimens such as this one being offered here. This
rare example comes from an old German private collection and was
collected long ago before the ban was enacted. With digging in the
formation now off-limits, these rare German Permian fossils are sure to
appreciate in value and become increasingly difficult to acquire.
This fossil BRANCHIOSAUR
is a type of amphibian that once
inhabited the Permian swamps of what is now Southwest Germany.
There are numerous of these specimens on the market but
many of these Branchiosaur
fossils have artificially restored skeletons with black colored pencil
before they are coated to seal the enhancement.
We received this specimen in its uncoated, "raw" state as it was
collected long ago. We applied the consolidant on the fossilized
skeleton ourselves to stabilize and bring out the fossil against the
shale matrix in which it was preserved on and
we guarantee the fossil
skeleton of the amphibian you see above is 100% authentic.
