description  
This incredible 325 year old fossil millipede has been preserved in a half nodule. The detail on the millipede's segmented body is absolutely magnificent and there is some evidence, under magnification of soft body preservation. The specimen was discovered in 1999 and has resided in the late professor GORDON WALKDEN collection ever since. This open cast quarry closed down and back filled over a decade ago. Only very few millipedes' were found at this now world famous carboniferous locality. One for the serious and discerning collector. Fossils Direct is a premium colletors website.
