Description: These fossil fish ear bones or better known as (otoliths) they are heavily mineralized particles of the inner ear of fish. This particular bone structure help the fish understand its orientation in space which enable fish to sense gravity. They help with overall acceleration and deceleration, which is essential for proper balance and movement control in aquatic settings.

Much like trees, fish inner ear bones grow rings allowing age to be determined in a similar manner.
