Aviculopecten princeps Fossil

Here are some pictures of a rare find of an almost fully intact Aviculopecten princeps pelecypod fossil. It was found in a quarry in Clark County, Indiana USA in a large slab. Luckily it was mostly removed with a diamond saw.

The fossil dates to the Devonian Period and was found in the Jeffersonville Limestone.

Thanks to Kenny for letting me image this specimen.
