    Details:

    Insect Fossil

    Age - Cambrian - Cretaceous (500-65 MYA)
    Origin - Morocco

    Insect fosssils are not merely impressions, but also appear in many other forms: While wings are indeed a common insect fossil, they do not readily decay or digest, which is why birds and spiders typically leave the wings after devouring the rest of an insect. Terrestrial vertebrates are almost always preserved just as bony remains (or inorganic casts thereof), the orginal bone usually having been replaced by the mineral apatite.

    Size: 3 1/4" x 4"
