Stock Number  FPFPA714

Name:   Fossil Fern Plate
Age:  Pennsylvanian
Formation:  Llewellyn Formation
Location:  Near St. Clair, Pennsylvania
Size:  Plate is 11.5 inches across

This is a very nice plant fossil from the now-closed location near St. Clair, Pennsylvania. The fossil fern fronds are preserved as a thin film of white pyrophyllite on black shale. The detail of this fossil is quite nice, and the fronds are very distinct and displayable. There are three different types of fronds on the plate, which is quite unusual. This is a very cool example of unusual fossil fern fronds from the Coal Regions of Pennsylvania
