CICHLID FISH FOSSILS- MIDDLE EOCENE- MAHENGA DISTRICT - TANZANIA
These fossils were found at Mahenga, in the Singida region of Tanzania and and are just some which come from an old collection I purchased some 25 years ago. The deposits were first reported in the early 1930's by geologists prospecting for diamonds, but, possibly were already known about by a German exploration group who were in the area in the early 1900's.

The Mahenga site was a crater lake and dates to the Middle Eocene, some 60 million years ago, making these fish the earliest known Cichlid fossils uncovered. These are also the most complete Cichlid fossils known. None of these fossils are now allowed out of Tanzania.

The fossils and fossil imprints are very well preserved, even some scales are still evident in some of the specimens. Apart from been treated with Paraloid B72, no further work has been done on them.
Please note that I am not a qualified palaeontologist, but have a great interest in fossils..

Golden Beryl - Nigeria Ref. MQ/30
- click on image for larger photo -
This is the first time I have seen this color outside Zimbabwe where it was produced by the 'Green Walking Stick' mine way back in the 1960's.
This material was found a few months ago in Nigeria and shows a outstanding color, from deep golden yellow to a lighter yellow.

The material is direct from the mine and has not been cleaned. Consequently, the stones are graded AA - AAA in clarity with large areas of AAA quality..
This is a superb parcel consists of 6 stones, with a combined weight of 90.38 cts and is priced at $633.00 for the parcel.
That is a cost of just $7.00 per ct!
Now beat that for value!!.
