This is a very nice specimen of a ''pea pod'' from a fossil legume. This fruit is from the Eocene of Utah. The fossil looks like a ''snap pea'', or ''sugar pea'' pod. The fossil has great color and contrasts wonderfully with the lighter-colored matrix. The specimen is nicely centered on the rectangular matrix plate. This is an excellent example of a fossilized pea pod from the Green River Formation.

A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
