description  
This stunning large specimen from the Yorkshire Coast is one of the finest we have come across for sale on the open market. The individual leaf fronds have lovely detail throughout. Zamites belongs to a group of plants named Bennettitales and is one of the earliest flowering plants. This particular specimen was discovered in 1981 a few hundred yards from Whitby Abbey famed for its visitation from Count Dracula. The plant itself has been preserved within an incredibly hard nodule. This fossil is approximately 175 million years old and would grace any collection of rare fossil plants.
