Fabulous Fern Plate
Formation: Llewellyn Formation
Location: Near St. Clair, Pennsylvania
Size: Plate is 18.4 inches across!
This is a HUGE plate of spectacular fossil Seed Ferns from the classic St. Clair, Pennsylvania locality. The Seed Ferns are preserved as a thin film of white pyrophyllite on black shale. The plate has many fronds intact, which are preserved in many different orientations. The fossil ferns exhibit wonderful detail - the individual leaflets of the fronds are clearly defined. The fossils have outstanding natural color and contrast and are well showcased on the huge (over a foot and a half across!), natural plate of shale. There are also nice ferns on the back side of the plate. And there is even a BEAUTIFUL RAINBOW OF COLOR in the center of the plate - FULLY NATURAL! (see photo, but you really must see it in person...spectacular!). This is an extremely collectible and displayable plate of distinct Coal Age fossils from Pennsylvania.
A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
