    Description

    Fossil "Sea Scorpion" Plate
    Eurypterus remipes
    Silurian
    Fiddler Green Formation
    Herkimer County, New York, USA

    This unusually large and nearly complete fossil sea scorpion is quite impressive with its broad brown fossilized body preserved as if swimming on a contoured matrix of gray shale. The ancient arthropod shows very little restoration and is in very good condition overall. A representation of the New York state fossil, this is an important creature from the ocean of 400 million years ago. From the seminal locality for the variety, this is an excellent specimen featuring a robust size and superb preservation.
    Overall Measurements: 12.20 x 8.27 x 1.01 inches (31.00 x 21.00 x 2.56 cm)

    Provenance: Central Coast Collection

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]
