Mosasaur Vertebra-Morocco #2
This piece consists of 4 large articulated Mosasaur vertebra from the Cretaceous phosphate beds in Morocco. The vertebra are in the natural matrix and I have saturated this piece with a stabilizer. The matrix is very friable and fragile but it becomes very solid when adding the stabilizer. I purchased this piece field prepped and partially jacketed and did the final preparation myself so can guarantee the authenticity. Bone from the phosphate beds is very fragile. There is a partial paddle bone visible on the back. Piece measures approximately 14 inches by 9.5 inches.
