Here is a fabuous example of a very rare fossil plant. This is an extremely detailed palm flower, Sabalites sp., from the Green River Formation of Wyoming. Palm leaves and flowers are some of the most sought-after fossils found in the Green River Formation. This flower has great dark color, which contrasts beautifully with the buff-colored matrix. The amazing fossil has very nice detail - the individual stamens are even intact and well preserved! This striking specimen is also quite unusual in that there is even a fossil fish preserved on the plate! The large flower is wonderfully showcased on the rectangular display plate, ready for framing! This is a fabulous, impressive example of a rare Palm Flower fossil that can not only be part of a fossil collection, but also proudly displayed in your home or office!

A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
