This fish slab comes from the Upper Triassic (Noricum, about 220 million years old) of Wiestal at Hallein near Salzburg in Austria.

The stone contains three partial fishes. Two Colobodus and one Heterolepidotus. One tail-fin of the Colobodus is still coveerd with sediment.

The matrix is original and unbroken, no manipulatuions!

Discoveries of fossil fishes from the Triassic are great rarities. Salzburg was lucky to have a interesting location for triassic fishes in the near Hallein Wiestal. The quality of these fishes is unique and of international importance. The fossil-bearing material was mined for several decades. From bituminous rock (main dolomite) rock oil was recovered. Even the Romans used these stones before 1500 years for floor mosaics.

Rarely offered fossil from extinct location.
