Ichthyosaurus Stenopterygius quadriscissus
195x55x5 cm; ca. 100 kg
Holzmaden; Lias Epsilon II/5 (Unterer Stein)

This is the one of a hundred, very complete specimen, enbedded in the original matrix!
Undoubtlly the most spectacular Ichthyosaur we offered so far. It has museum quality and comes with an expert report from the Hauff Urwelt-Museum evaluating the fossil. 
Bernhard Hauff gave the hint, appraising the Ichthyo, that there are several bite marks visible at the front paddles, when it was attacked by a persecutor, what makes this specimen even more special.
With a length of 195 cm it is not an adult specimen (becoming up to many meters), so it still handable (two persons are able to carry it). The plate is quite stable, with mounds on back ready for wall hanging. 

In comparison: For another complete but composed and inserted Ichthyosaur, usually offered by resellers, you will typically pay 30k plus. Located close to Holzmaden, avoiding resellers, we are able to offer a museum quality specimen at significantly less, making this offer an excellent investment. Pieces like that are offered rarely and will get less in the future as quarries close one to the next.

Ichthyosaurus quadriscissus
100x63x6 cm; 50 kg
Holzmaden

Offered on behalf of a collector friend and professionally skilled preparator is this outstanding Ichthyosaur . A near complete specimen, enbedded in the original matrix, not inserted into another plate, no composite, restauration less than 1%. This is quite uncommon in a market, dominated by neat but scientifically worthless "prestigeous fossils". Bones and teeth preserved in a quality that stands the critical examination by glasses. The fossil comes from Holzmaden/Ohmden, definitely not Dotternhausen, what explains, that there is no hint for alteration. Colour is stable, the specimen was exposed in an office room for several years. It comes with a stable steel fixing. Due to its stability it is also suitable for wall-hanging.
