Recommended Posts

2012.9.15. I found fish fossils in Foshan(China).

I found a big fish this time. above 10cm long. I have found some fish here, but always 4 to 6cm long. and this fish is very complete!

Nice find, Chinaboy. :)

What kind of fish is it, and what is the age of the formations there?

Thanks for posting this.

Great fish! Please explain a little about the treatment shown in the 2nd photo. It appears you have plastered the slab to a board. For stabilization? How will you proceed with final preparation? Thanks for posting this interesting piece.

I prepare it by plaster.It's for stabilization, the oilshale is very soft and hard to conserve.
