Rare, 5" Miocene Fossil Pine Cone - Czech Republic

This is a nicely preserved 5" long fossil pine cone from the Czech Republic. These cones are found within sandstone concretions, and dozens of concretions must be found and split open to find them. They must then be carefully prepared to remove the hard sandstone from the fossil to expose all of the detail. They are Miocene in age, or approximately 20 million years old.
