Huge Fossilised Fern Plant, 300 Million Years Old

About

A large and extremely decorative fossilised seed fern (Neuropteris dussartii), from the Piesberg quarry, North-West Germany. Dating to the Carboniferous Period, 359 - 300 million years before present. The fronds are spread out across the surface of the stone and fossilised in remarkable detail, the veins of the leafs and textures of the stems clearly visible. Areas of the once green fern have transformed into various hues of silvery blues, oranges and greens. An exceptionally well preserved, aesthetic branch of a long extinct plant species. With metal back plate for wall mounting. Measures: Height 27 inches.
