With pleasure I want to show you my collection of fossils - it's a work in progress.

My first piece is this Lycoptera davidi from Western Liaoning, my brother's gift for my birthday. The plate is 13 centimeters long, the fish 8 centimeters long.

Here is the second piece of my fossil collection!

This is a partial jaw of Stephanorhinus (species not identified) with one intact tooth and partial root of another one, from Bugyi in Hungary. The piece is 7,7 centimeters long and 8 centimeters heigh.

Now it's the turn of this small but beautiful Jurassic Cleoniceras (species unidentified) from Atsimo-Andrefana, in Madagascar. The ammonite is wide approximately 4,5 centimeters.

Live it's even more gorgeous, because it's iridescent.

Hello!

I'm back with a new gorgeous fossil: a 7-centimeters tooth of Spinosaurus aegyptiacus from Kem Kem Beds, Morocco. Note the good conditions of the enamel and the tip.

From Pest County in Hungary, a molar of Mammuthus primigenius. It's long 15 cm and weighs almost 1,5 kg. The surface is preserved with polyvinyl butyral and the enamel is clearly visible.
