1 in stock


MACRONEUROPTERIS scheuchzeri is the name given to the leaves of the medium size fossil trees that was quite abundant during the carboniferous. They thrived in hot and humid areas much the same as jungles today. These fossils are commonly found in waste dumps of coal mining areas.

They are from the Mississippian Period when plants seemed to take over the world and grew in many varied shapes and sizes.

This specimen leaves are attached at the base and are 1 5/8 long in an roughly round ironstone nodule 1 3/4 by 1 7/8 inches.
