Plant Fossil Fern and Leaf Patterns 3-4 Inch
Information Card Included

Plant fossils are common in coal mining areas around the world. During the Carboniferous
Period, or Age of Plants, about 300 millions years ago, coal had its beginnings. It was at
this time that ferns and plants became trapped between layers of black shale. Later, a white
mineral--pyrophyllite (aluminum silicate)--indirectly replaced the plant tissues, preserving
the plants' shape and form.
Plants most commonly found are alethopteris, neuropteris, pecopteris and sphenophyllym.

Picture is representative of the specimen you will receive.  Each rock is unique and will vary in shape, size and appearance.  No two rocks will be exactly alike.
