Fabulous Double-Sided Fossil Seed Fern Plate
Stock Number  FPFPA715

Name:   Double-Sided Fossil Seed Fern Plate
Age:  Pennsylvanian
Formation:  Llewellyn Formation
Location:  Near St. Clair, Pennsylvania
Size:  Plate is 15.3 inches tall!

This is a large plate of fossil seed ferns from the Coal Age deposits near St. Clair, Pennsylvania. It is very hard to get a slab this large from this site, let alone a slab of this size that is this full of fossils! The entire slab is covered with large seed fern fronds and branches. There are several different types of seed ferns represented on the plate. The seed ferns are preserved as a thin film of white pyrophyllite on black shale - quite striking! The fossil plants have excellent color and contrast and exhibit superb detail. This whole slab is one piece - it has never been broken or pieced together! And the back side is almost as awesome as the front side - WOW! This is a cool, large double-sided display plate of Pennsylvanian plants from a classic location.
