Description Extended Information
 
This is a fossilized/petrified pine cone (Araucaria mirabilis) from Patagonia, Argentina. It dates from the middle Jurassic Period, 160 million years ago. These polished halves measure approximately 2.75 inches long, 1.85 inches wide and approximately 1.4 inches thick (both pieces together). The inner sections have been polished whereas the outer portions have been maintained in the natural condition. This fossil pine cone reveals complete petrification as evidenced by the excellent detail on the polished surfaces. Individual petrified seed kernels and the spaces they occupied can easily be seen and appreciated. There is a stem scar at the top of one of the sections. The exterior of the cone is extremely well-preserved. The color varies from creme (off-white) to dark brown.
Overall, this is an excellent fossilized/petrified pine cone (Araucaria mirabilis) from Patagonia, Argentina.
