Extremely rare Permian fossil shark. The shark is all natural with exception of some small crack fill. The animal and matrix have been left as found in their natural color shadings.
These fossils are found in a matrix that makes it hard to take out in 1 piece. Once found the matrix is consolidated, then recomposed after which the shark is fully prepared by hand. In many cases at the end of the preparation process the sharks are artificially "whitened" and the matrix darkened to create a higher contrast. We opted to keep the natural colours and only to perform small matrix restorations where needed.
The result is an absolute museum piece that fits in any interior, museum or private collection.
