Araucaria mirabilis

    Out of stock

    A TOP QUALITY, LARGE rare Araucaria mirabilis pine cone specimen from Argentina. A July 2019 Fossil of the Month. These Jurassic pine cones are exquisite and known for their high quality and extreme preservation. This cone is large and shows great exterior detail and a small stem (rare). The Araucaria cone has exceptional inflation; not naturally compressed which commonly occurs. A fully inflated specimen - rare! This is the best larger pine cone that I had in stock and I will not be getting any more as exports have stopped for more than 10 years!  Authenticity guaranteed.
