Product Description

For sale is an exquisite opalised clam shell from Coober Pedy, S.Aust. The shell is, I have to emphasize, complete and is fully replaced by opal. These fossils are approximately 110 million years old.  Pics show front and back.  The decaying fossil leaves a cavity which is filled by gel opal which solidifies over millions of years. Fossils with color, really add impact to any fossil collection, please note these amazing fossils come from only two localities world wide. These Australian opal fossils, are today becoming harder to obtain and have increasing in value appreciably, in the last 10 years. Please remember our prices are in very rapidly depreciating Australian dollars!!
