Featured here is my personal favorite type of fossil out of the Green River Formation in Wyoming. The stingray known as Heliobatis radians is one of the two types of stingray fossils that can be found in the Green River Formation. Stingrays are amongst the most rare fossils found in this formation due to thier skeletons being made of cartilage. This material decays much more rapidly then bone making complete well preserved fossils nearly impossible to find. This beautifully preserved museum quality specimen sits on a varying colored stone matrix for a visually appealing presentation. The barb on the tail used for defense can be felt when lighlty running your finger across it. There is even partial skin preservation seen around the center of the ray which is almost unheard of. It is truly amazing that such beauty can still be found so many years later.
Along side of this beautifully preserved ray is a large palm frond. This adds to the visual appeal as well as tells a story of the conditions in which this ray lived. Both specimens boast a high level of preservation and detail making for a stunning visual appeal.
Measurements of the plate are 37" tall by 26" wide with the ray disc measuring a 8.5" in diameter. It is backed with 3/4 cabinet grade plywood and wooden french cleats ready to hang in the home or office.
