Beautiful White Fern Fronds from Pennsylvania
Stock Number  FPFPA903

Name:   Fossil Seed Ferns
Age:  Pennsylvanian
Formation:  Llewellyn Formation
Location:  Near St. Clair, Pennsylvania

This is a beautiful plant fossil. It is a striking plate of fossil fern fronds from Pennsylvania. This specimen is replaced with the mineral Pyrophyllite, which gives the fossil its stunning white color. The LONG fern fronds have great detail and contrast beautifully with the black matrix plate. And there are three different types of ferns preserved, which is extremely unusual. This is a very displayable grouping of fossil fern fronds from the Coal Age.
