Bundenbach, Germany

The Hunsruck Shales of Bundenbach are famous for pyritized fossils in the deeply colored slate of the historically rich locality. Archaeological finds indicate that this slate was used in Roman times. Mining in the area, dating to the 14th century, was responsible for the discovery of the area's rich cache of fossils and today it is a designated lagerstatte, with a wide variety of well preserved species which represent a "snapshot" of geologic time. Offered is a beautiful starfish specimen in the rich, black matrix of its locality.
Matrix measures 6 ¼ x 5 ½; Specimen measures 4in
