The piece on offer is 58mm x 40mm x 15mm thick and weighs 106gm.

I have been dealing in mineral specimens, fossils and antiques relating to mining, science and medicine for almost 50 years. I have a shop in Tideswell, Derbyshire, in the heart of England's Peak District National Park, a website at www.tideswel.demon.co.uk and I regularly list items on eBay under the ID of "petrifactioneer". I am always willing to purchase quality items within my areas of interest.
