FOSSIL BIVALVE

Venericardia planicosta
45 million years old

Damery, near Epernay, France
 
A nice example of a large, beautifully preserved fossil bivalve.
 
During the Eocene period the part of France known as the Paris Basin was submerged beneath a warm, subtropical sea containing sharks and many types of shellfish.  On the eastern edge of this basin is Epernay, in the Champagne region, where these creatures have been preserved in a sandy marl.
