Very Distinct Fossil Fern Frond from Pennsylvania
Stock Number  FPFPA733

Name:   Fossil Fern Frond
Age:  Pennsylvanian
Formation:  Llewellyn Formation
Location:  Near St. Clair, Pennsylvania
Size:  Plate is 6.3 inches across

This is a very nice fossil fern frond from the now-closed location near St. Clair, Pennsylvania. The fossil is preserved as a thin film of white pyrophyllite on black shale. The detail of this fossil is quite nice, and the plant is beautifully displayed on the large, natural plate of shale. There is also a nice fern frond preserved on the back side of the plate. This is a very cool example of a large, colorful fossil fern frond from the Coal Regions of Pennsylvania.
