LARGE SLAB OF GLOSSOPTERIS LEAVES - PERMIAN, AUSTRALIA.


Glossopteris browniana.

Large square slab of laminated shale covered both sides with well preserved leaves of a Glossopteris tree. The Glossopteris Forests grew all over the former southern Supercontinent. Identical Glossopteris remains are now found in Antarctica, Australia, India, South Africa and South America - evidence of the breaking up of the Supercontinent at the end of the Palaeozoic.The trees shed annually so carpets of leaves lay on the ground. Beautiful preservation and superb detail under magnification. A fantastic display slab of this famous fossil plant.

Permian.
Dunedoo, New South Wales, Australia.

Specimen : 19 x 15.5 x 1.5 cm.
Longest leaf : 12 cm.
