1" Cretaceous Fossil Pine Cone (Sequoia) - North Dakota

This is a small, Cretaceous age pine cone with nice preservation, that was collected from the Hell Creek Formation of South Dakota. These pine cones are Cretaceous in age and were likely collected from an iron-rich outcrop within the Hell Creek Formation, which explains their dark orange-red coloration.

The cracking on this specimen is natural and due to stresses within the ground, however there is no indication of any restoration or artificial stabilization of this specimen
