Sept. 14 fossil auction ‘revives’ fascinating prehistoric species

A large fossilized Mioplosus labracoides fish, an ammonite Kranaosphinctes with a white shell, and a purplish fossil shark tooth that measures more than five and a half inches will likely earn top lot status at Jasper52’s Fossilized Ammonites, Trilobites and More sale, which will be conducted on Wednesday, September 14 at 11 am Eastern time. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.

In addition to the ammonites and trilobites touted in the sale’s title, its 75 lots include several examples of polished ocean jasper spheres in a pleasing range of colors; a celestite geode; a specimen of florite with deep green crystals, on a matrix; a freeform orange labradorite; a pale purple amethyst crystal cluster with columns that jut out in several directions; a dogtooth calcite; and an iron pyrite cluster that takes the form of several overlapping cubes.

Fossilized fish in a limestone slab, est. $1,500-$2,000
