FOSSIL TROPICAL SEED FERNS
  
300 million years old
  
Chislet Colliery, near Canterbury, Kent

  
A rare example of a Carboniferous fossil plant from Kent. This fossil was collected in 1980 from the disused colliery tips of Chislet Colliery in the Kent Coalfield.
  
In the Carboniferous period Britain was on the equator and covered by tropical rain forest with giant trees and strange fern-like plants. Much of this vegetation became layers of coal, but some plants left impressions in mud which hardened into stone. 
   
A nice little fossil from an unusual location. Presented in a lidded gift box.
