Specimens of fossiliferous sandstone sourced from Rochdale, UK. However the type locality of this material is Scotland. Samples are supplied in various sizes and come supplied in a card tray with an information label.

Specimens of fossiliferous sandstone sourced from Rochdale, UK. However the type locality of this material is Scotland. The particular boulder these pieces came from was found buried within the clay beneath Rochdale. This suggests that this material was relocated via glacial activity. The samples display numerous carboniferous plant fossils including sigillaria, allowing us to date these rock specimens to the carboniferous period. These samples contain small fragments of various plant species, leading to the conclusion that a violent event (likely a storm) was behind the plant matter's deposition. Samples are supplied in various sizes and come supplied in a card tray with an information label. These specimens are perfect for educational use but the oddly appealing aesthetic the samples have means they would also make a great addition to any rock collection.
