Two Detailed Asterophyllites Branches from Poland
Stock Number  FPFPO704

Name:   Asterophyllites Branches
Age:  Pennsylvanian
Formation:  Westphalian
Location:  Upper Silesia, Poland
Size:  Plate is 3.3 inches across

Here is an extremely interesting plate of Coal Age plants. These are Asterophyllites sp. from the Pennsylvanian of Poland. This unusual fossil plant consisted of a stem bearing whorls of spike-shaped leaves from the Calamites plant - this plant became extinct at the end of the Pennsylvanian. This plate of Asterophyllites exhibits excellent detail. There are many whorls of leaves present on this plate. The stalks are easily seen, and the individual leaves are clearly defined. The fossil plants have a distinct, dark coloration and contrast wonderfully with the grey shale. This is a very unusual double specimen of this unique fossil plant from France.
