Santana Flora

This specimen is thought to represent the remains of cone seeds, now recrystallised to carbonate. Cone scales themselves are not usually preserved, but as can be seen above, the overall form of the cone is maintained.

It is likely that the cone was one of many from cheirolepidiaceous conifers existing at this time.
