Fish Fossil
Species: Knightia
Local: Green River Formation, Wyoming
Period: Eocene Age
Total Weight: 242 grams

Knightia is an extinct genus of bony fish which lived in the fresh water lakes and rivers of North America during the Eocene epoch. It was named by David Starr Jordan in 1907, in honor of the late University of Wyoming professor Wilbur Clinton Knight, "an indefatigable student of the paleontology of the Rocky Mountains." It is the state fossil of Wyoming.

The fossil is complete… contained in limestone matrix slab and originates out of the Green river formation, Wyoming.

This specimen is truly an amazing artifact that is created by the ever-changing, intriguing forces of nature. …Truly a remarkable, profound and memorable gift to a lover of Natural History. God’s epigram and spiritual testament to the hard fact that from dust we are and to dust we shall return.

Not only is this piece a profound testimonial to the creative and re-creative powers of nature, but simply by placing this fossilized fish on a book or knick knack shelf, the specimen creates a meditative, natural history museum atmosphere as it interestingly accents and adds décor to one’s home, studio or office.

Truly something bound to provoke many a conversation, cherished for a lifetime for those who love and appreciate the beauty of nature and believe Geological Mineral Specimens are the Epigrams of God.
