This is a beautiful specimen of Lepidodendron bark from the Pennsylvanian of Iowa. Lepidodendron trees were very important in the formation of coal in the mid-continent area. The diamond-shaped pattern of the bark is very distinct. Each ''diamond'' represents the point of attachment of a fallen leaf. This specimen of Lepidodendron bark was acquired from an old collection. And the size of the piece makes for a stunning display. This is a great example of this unusual bark from a Coal Age tree.

This fossil was collected and obtained legally, and is also being sold legally.
