The Argentine pine cones are well know for their high quality and exceptional preservation. Pararaucaria is the smaller relative to the Araucaria. Pararaucaria cone size varies from small to medium. Some cones ncludes a good stem - rare. These cones are cleaned to show the full detail of the pine cone exterior. Excellent detail has been preserved. Specimens typically exhibit round shape (inflated), but most are slightly compressed. They make incredible pine cone specimens!
