Truly stunning double palm frond from the Green River Formation.

This positive & negative fossil has been perfectly preserved in volcanic ash with each half measuring over 2 meters high. The size and quality of this piece can only be obtained with a mixture of luck, skill and patience, as the stone must be split in just the right place to get both parts intact. It is one of only three pairs of this magnitude found worldwide in the last 7 years.
