Steneosaurus bollensis - Steneosaurus is an extinct genus of teleosaurid crocodyliform from the Early Jurassic to Middle Jurassic (Toarcian to Callovian). Fossil specimens have been found in England, France, Germany, Switzerland and Morocco. The largest species, S. heberti, reached up to 5 m (16.5 ft) long, though 2.5–3.5 m was far more common Species in this genus are traditionally classed into two skull groups: longirostrine (long, narrow jaws) and brevirostrine (short, broad jaws)

Feel the energy? The giant crystals were discovered in Swiss Alps by Franz von Arx and Elio Mulle. Thank you for posting Amazing Geologist photo:.

Alien abduction: This fossil crinoid, which inspired the artist who designed the extra-terrestrial antagonist of the Alien films, was stolen and and later returned to a museum in Switzerland. I can see the resemblance.

'Normally' and very rarely found in alpine regions of Switzerland, France and Russia, gwindel quartz is best described as a twisted stack of doubly-terminated crystals - and they're usually small.  This quartz is from Arkansas, nearly the opposite of 'alpine', to be sure. And a bit over small as the center crystal is 7" tall. Overall, this spectacular tabular gwindel self-displays at 1-3/4" [to 5-1/2" of 'wing cluster']x 5-3/4"x 6".  Such a celebrity, we had it verified. Some specs…
