Palmoxylon Fossil Magnified
These magnifications are from a thin slab of silicified palm fossil. I wet sanded the slab with 320 and 800 grit paper.
Mr. Miyagi would be proud of my sanding work!
Fossil was photographed wet to enhance the contrast. Have not tried polishing it yet.
This fossil appears to be of the genus
and was found in Texas. It is from the Eocene.
Thanks to Herb for the fossil.
