Cretaceous Fish (Stromerichthys) Jaws & Shark Teeth In Rock

 
 
This is a really cool association of Late Cretaceous marine fossils from the phosphate deposits in the Oulad Abdoun Basin of Morocco. There are three fairly uncommon jaw sections of Stromerichthys an extinct ray finned fish along with a 1" long Serratolamna shark tooth and many other bone fragments. They are located in a 5x4" rock which has been prepared to further expose the fossils. There are several repaired cracks in the rock.

Comes with an acrylic display stand.

It comes from the massive phosphate deposits in the Oulad Abdoun Basin near Khouribga, Morocco. These deposits are mined for phosphate, one of Moroccos biggest exports. The fossils are collected as a byproduct of the mining operations, saving them from certain destruction by the rock crusher.
