We have offered some amazing and rare specimens of prehistoric marine life but this will likely be one of of the more visually impressive.  This is an  INTACT block of Miocene Period sand dollar Scutella stelatta and a rib fossil from a Metaxytherium sea cow that was found amongst the sand dollar fossils exactly as shown.  The matrix is original and the sand dollars and sea cow rib bone were found and exposed exactly as you see them.  The detail of each sand dollar is superb and the presence of the sea cow rib adds incredible character to this RARE specimen.  The entire front surface is very multi-dimensional.  All the fossils on this specimen are in fantastic original preservation.  Sand dollars are ECHINOIDS and are members of the echinoderm family.  They were living creatures that lived on the bottom of soft ocean floors. 

For advanced prehistoric marine life fossil collections or for the fancier of ocean life from the past, THIS SPECIMEN IS A MUST!  We collected ONLY TWO specimens from our Summer field trips this year so this specimen and the other smaller example are all we have!  A highly unusual and immensely attractive showpiece fossil of recognizable origins for the average layperson.  MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!   NO FABRICATION OR ARTIFICIAL ASSEMBLING OF THE FOSSILS IN THEIR ORIGINAL MATRIX.
