HISTORY OF THE GREEN RIVER FORMATION
The Green River Formation represents one of the largest documented accumulations of sedimentary rock in the world and dates back 50 million years. It covers an area of more than 25,000 square miles and averages about 2000 feet in thickness. These lakes were formed by geologic events that uplifted the Rocky Mountains in early times. The climate was much different than the desert like climate of today. It was similar (subtropical) to the present climate of the Gulf Coast and southern Atlantic areas of the US. The first record of a fossil fish discovered in the Green River Formation was in 1856. All of the fossil fish,stingrays,palm fronds and others displayed on our web site come from the Fossil Lake area near Kemmerer, Wyoming USA. Found at the 7200 foot elevation this area has been commercially mined since the late 1800 hundreds.

Some fish (not all) are highlighted, some only have tips of tail or fins touched in. This helps to enhance the looks and detail of the specimen. This is a normal fossil preparation technigue and does not detract from the quality or value of the specimen.
