Heliobatis radians (stingray) fossil with Knightia eocaena 100% Natural, no restoration found within the Green River Formation in Wyoming 
Here's what is so incredibly unique about this stingray fossil; at some point, a local tectonic shift occured which created a minor fault line straight across the fossil stingray where a portion of the rock shifted just a few millimeters down. If you look at the photo closely you can see a healed natural minor fault that was repaired.
Plate approx: 9" x 6.25"
Stingray: approx 7" long 3.75" diameter ray
Knightia eocaena: approx 1.5"
Absolutely zero restoration was required to prepare this fossil.
