Mineral information:
What's the mineral connection here, you say? Aren't fossils a different category? Well, yes they are. However, these ferns are preserved in a mineral called Pyrophillite (a pseudomorph of Pyrite), which also gives them the silvery-white color. I believe (based on some research) that some of the ferns present on this specimen are Alethopteris sp., Pecopteris hemiteliodes, Neuropteris, Sphenophyllum... but don't take my word for it. I'm no botanist, and you may just enjoy the discovery quest!
