This is a fabulous fossil cone. It is a gorgeous specimen of Araucaria mirabilis from the Jurassic of Argentina. This fossil cone is quite large and wonderfully inflated. The colorful cone exhibits exquisite detail. A long stem in still intact, which is quite unusual. The individual cone scales are very distinct and beautifully displayed. The back side of the cone even has a large insect boring (rare!). This is a top qulaity whole Araucaria cone with long stem attached.
