Fern Fossils – Neuropteris Fossil Fern Nodules
Fossilised ferns known as Neuropteris, on a stone matrix.
These ferns date from the upper Carboniferous, and are found in the Crock Hay open cast mine, near Wigan, UK.
They come as positive and negative parts of a single nodule – a stone has been cracked in half and the fossil is in the middle.
Currently, we have two of these nodules in stock –
#1 – 40x37x20MM approximately. This is a bit of a lower grade specimen with no well-defined fern fossils.
#2 – 45x37x34MM approximately. This is a nice specimen with a single well defined fossil inclusion.
