Name: Diplurus newarki (Coelacanth)
Geologic Age: Late Triassic (190,000,000 Years Old)
Stratigraphic detail: Lockatong Formation
Location: New Jersey
Comments: This is a RARE Coelacanth from an inaccessible quarry in New Jersey. This quarry lies below residential homes now. Fossils from this old location are rarely offered. This specimen measures approx. 3 1/2" long on an irregularly shaped matrix. The fossils from this location are the same color as the matrix. This is a very rare specimen with average preservation. It is possible that a skilled preparator could work out more of the fish from the matrix. There was a natural fault line crack that has been professionally repairs.
