Skeletons – Psittacosaur

Probably the most desired of all fossils is that of a complete dinosaur skeleton!

Here Triassica presents that coveted and ultimate display piece!

This spectacular Psittacosaur dinosaur, was prepared by ourselves in the United Kingdom.

Dating to the Cretaceous, this example was discovered in the Jiufotang Formation, from the famous Liaoning Province, N.E. China.

This superb Dinosaur measures 31″ (79cm) - the skull has exceptionally well preserved teeth.

This extraordinary specimen of P. Meileyingensis is 100% original fossilized dinosaur skeleton ie. no bones whatsoever have been taken from another specimen, to complete the dinosaur.

Of scientific interest - rarely preserved remnants of carbonized skin tissue can be seen, particularly on the skull and sacrum (pelvis).

Recent discoveries have determined that Psittacosaurs had exceptionally thick skin – very much like that of sharks.

The carbon remnants are  scattered in small clusters with larger patches up to 3/4″!

Vertebrae (with dorsal & lateral processes) comprise separate sections with individual bones fixed together. The vertebral column is retained as fossilized.

Supplied with a Certificate of Authenticity – we guarantee the genuiness of this dinosaur!

This really is a genuine dinosaur – not a replica, model, not a cast – not made of plastic, resin, plaster – it is a real fossilized DINOSAUR!

The variant coloration, with darker areas is due to the outer bone layer (periosteum) not having preserved & does NOT represent fabricated parts.

Indeed every bone exhibits a proliferation of multiple fractures caused by the pressure of overlying matrix – even the tiny spinous processes, claws etc have such fracturing & lamellar bone exposure – CONCLUSIVE that this fossil is genuine.

This all real fossil must NOT be confused with overseas prepared fabrications made of resin, crushed bone & glue or similar.

Now this real dinosaur can be yours – one of a select few worldwide to own a dinosaur!

And the price for such an incredible, real dinosaur – not as much as you may expect?

BUY IT NOW, USD $4499.00!

Sinornithosaurus (derived from a combination of Latin and Greek, meaning ‘Chinese bird-lizard’) is a genus of  feathered Dromeaosaurid Dinosaur  from the Lower Creataceous of the Yixian Formation in China. It caused a sensation because it was the fifth of the non – avian dinosaur discovered by 1999. It was collected from the Sihetun locality of western Liaoning. It was in Layer 6, lower (Chaomidianzi) Yixian Formation, Jehol Group.

I am starting my auction at a considerably lower price than what I paid for it a few years back. I aquired it from a reputable dealer in Arizona and can testify to its authenticity.

 Item will be shipped in a wood box securely packed due to its fragile state. I will not be able to ship internationally.

The fossil Measures19 inches by 15 and weighs approximately 20 lbs. The actual length of the dino is appx 32 Inches. There has been some minor repair done to the rock which supports the fossil. But all the toes and parts are present.

2008-10-26 – Ebay: fossils of the week (Oct 16-25) A-invertebrate

 

 

a)   Crinoid group

RARE USA MULTIPLE CRINOID CROWN FOSSIL,TRILOBITE AGE NR

44 COMLETE CRINOID CROWNS, 1 MUSEUM PIECE! GILMORE IOWA

Item number: 160291829103

US $350.00 not sold

Oct-19-08 19:47:56 PDT

no1billiard

This is a truly amazing 100% original multiple crinoid death plate from the Mississippian Era Gilmore City Formation of Gilmore City, Iowa.  At least 43 exceptionally preserved specimens, a couple more may have been overlooked! This classic location has been closed to collecting for many years.  There are 42 identified crinoid crowns representing at least 4 genera on the slab and one species unknown and are each labeled with a small number on a red-dot sticker next to each. The identification key list is provided to the winning bidder.  Many specimens exhibit their original stems attached and all have their feathery arms.  The identification is provided as follows:

10) Eretmocrinus tentor on front, and 1) on the back.

22) Dichocrinus multiplex,

7) Cercidocrinus fimbria,

3) Aorocrinus iola

1) unidentified crown. 

This plate is just teeming with crinoids (the eBay 12 photo limit only allowed a few to be shown individually). These crinoids are beautifully displayed, the plate itself measures 9 inches across and 8 inches high by about 2 inches thick.  These fossil echinoderms have great color and contrast and are naturally positioned on the rectangular plate of limestone, no composites!  This is one of the best crinoid multiples you will find from this classic locality, and with 44 or more crowns on it, it has a starting bid that’s only a fraction of it’s true value.

CRINOID  Macrocrinus mundulus, synbathocrinus swallovi,  Barycrinus stellatus

Age:  Mississippian
Formation:  Edwardsville Formation

Location:  Crawfordsville, Indiana , USA

Description: A fine example of an Inadunate Cladid crinoid (Family Staphylinocrinidae) known as Abrotocrinus unicus from the famous Crawfordsville crinoid beds showing an extensive section of attached stem. Preservation on this specimen is remarkably complete, down to the fine pinnules on the arms.

Description This is a wonderful Abrotocrinus  occidentalis fossil echinoderms from the famous Mississippian Crinoid Beds near Crawfordsville, Indiana. This crinoids is very 3-dimensional and exhibit excellent detail. The sea lilies are wonderfully showcased fossils – all natural, no compositing

This is a fine example of the variety of diverse crinoids to be found in the Crawfordsville deposits.

 A considerable portion of North America was underwater during the Carboniferous. This caused an abundance of marine creatures, such as Eretmocrinus.

Numerous species of the Eretmocrinus genus have been identified.

This is a very displayable Mulity plate of ammonites locally know as a “DEATH BED” . These are Dactylioceras sp. from the Jurassic of Germany 165 Million Years ago . This is a natural piece – there have been no ammonites added or composite. This type of ammonite has very fine ribbing and a rounded keel. The ammonites are quite inflated and exhibit fine detail. The ribbing pattern is easily seen and many of the cephalopods show the smaller, inner whorls. The natural yellowish coloration of the fossils is outstanding and contrasts beautifully with the dark brown matrix. This is a very appealing ammonite specimen from Germany.

This is a huge, amazing, naturally pyritized Harpoceras ammonite on a shale plate. The Harpoceras specimen measures an impressive 10″ in diameter. The matrix (plate) measures 18″ x 16″. The last photo shows how it is conveniently ready to be wall-mounted.

The Holzmaden Shale from Western Germany is a unique fossil locale that produces some of the world’s most impressive, museum quality ammonite fossils. This spectacular animal lived during the Jurassic Period (approximately 175 million years ago). Remarkably, this specimen is complete with no restoration. It is truly beautiful — the camera doesn’t completely capture its vivid, light golden colour. The value of this extraordinary piece surely exceeds the starting price. Note that Harpoceras ammonites of similar (or lesser) quality or size have sold for a far greater price on the internet! This exquisite pyritization and preservation is unique to one location in the world: the Holzmaden Shale, which has yielded some of the world’s greatest ammonites. This specimen is a prime example of the beauty that only nature can offer.
