Morrison Formation, Brush Basin, San Miguel County, Colorado, USA
Miniature, 3.8 x 3.2 x 2.2 cm
Ex. Ken Roberts
These unique mineral replacements of fossils are quite rare and hard to come by as anything more than thumbnail sized examples. This is a full miniature, beautifully excavated to reveal choice, mostly complete replacements of the fossil snail shells by red quartz, variety agate (some call them true jasper). From the pseudomorph collection of dealer and collector, Ken Roberts. This is the best example I have personally seen for sale. Joe Budd photos
