Crato Member/Santana Formation
6.69 x 5.90 x 0.41 inches (17 x 15 x 1.06 cm)
Although an undescribed variety, this is clearly a fossil plant. Dating to the Cretaceous Period, this "cute" example lived some 110 million years ago when dinosaurs like Triceratops and T-rex ruled the earth. An excellent example from the Santana Formation geologic Lagerstatte, an undisturbed fossil accumulation of diverse fauna, this specimen from the noteworthy Crato Formation is well preserved with both leaves and branch of rich brown on a mottled tan matrix. The fossil plant is at the bottom as if growing upward.
Estimate: $400 - up.
