Beautiful Fossil Cone from the Sahara Desert
Stock Number  FPCON57

Name:   Fossil Cone
Age:  Eocene
Location:  West Sahara, Morocco
Size:  Cone is 1.8 inches long

This is an excellent Fossil Cone from the Sahara Desert of Morocco. This Eocene cone has been replaced by silica and is quite distinct. The fossil has been removed from the surrounding matrix so that it can be viewed from all angles. The cone is preserved in a very 3-dimensional manner and exhibits very fine detail - the individual cone scales are very well defined. And the back side has some missing seeds, which is quite interesting! This is a wonderful example of this new find from Morocco.
