A lovely and well preserved plant from this well known Permian fossil locality. The P~ermian period was a scene of a mass extinction that killed 95% of all life - perhaps the greatest disaster in earth's history. The plant sits very nicely on a piece of squared Marl Slate and would make a lovely addition to any collection.
Having been collecting over a 30 year period at this location, very few plants have been found. The main reason is that it is a marine deposit so fossilisation of plants is rare. This is a fine example having good detail and is one for the collector.
Peserved on a squared block of matrix is this rare plant frond which has been collected from a marine deposit. The Permian Marls are more famous for its fossil fish. A very nice addition to any collection.
