Fossil Pine Cone


1 in stock


These Eocene aged fossils from Morocco are fossil seed (pine) cones. New research which has yet to be published theorizes that they are in fact fossils of aggregate fruits. Many of them show heavy damage due to insect feeding which would have been unlikely to occur with seed cones, and more more likely to occur with fruits.

This particular pine cone measures 1.74 inches long by .70 inch diameter and comes in this display box with information insert.  The box measures 4 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches.
