Fossilised Pine Cone, Eocene 55-33 Million Years BP

Well preserved coniferous seed cones are relatively rare, this agatizes cone comes from what is now the Western Sahara desert in Morocco, which tells us that at one time it must have been heavily forested. Fossilisation takes place over long periods of encapsulation within silt layers underwater or being covered quickly by ash, so that oxygen is deprived and in turn deterioration and decomposition is slowed, allowing miniralisation to take place instead.

40mm x 17mm, 13.8g

Prov: From an old Bristol collection aquired in the 50's

Condition: Well preserved with good scale definition but some encrustations adhering.

Will be supplied in a small dispaly box, it can be removed.
