EXTINCTIONS CHOICE - Fabulous Fern Plate
Stock Number  FPFPA719

Name:   Fabulous Fern Plate
Age:  Pennsylvanian
Formation:  Llewellyn Formation
Location:  Near St. Clair, Pennsylvania
Size:  Plate is 24 inches across!

This is a HUGE plate of spectacular fossil Seed Ferns from the classic St. Clair, Pennsylvania locality. The Seed Ferns are preserved as a thin film of white pyrophyllite on black shale. The plate has many fronds intact, which are preserved in many different orientations. The fossil ferns exhibit wonderful detail - the individual leaflets of the fronds are clearly defined. The fossils have outstanding color and contrast and are well presented on the huge (a full two feet long!), natural plate of shale. And there is even a rare Cyclopteris leaf preserved on the right side of the plate! (see photo) This is a very collectible and displayable plate of distinct Coal Age fossils from Pennsylvania.
