Ginkgo tree fossil remains are known as living fossils, this means that the fossil specimens are visually indistinguishable from species still present today!

Plants were just as important millions of years ago as they are today, if not more so, as these were the organisms that gave our planet life, and helped sustain it! The first oxygen creating organism was an algae, which singularly spread across our planet & slowly oxygenised the air. Plants were soon to evolve from this algae & helped flourish the land, creating a liveable planet for future animals to roam, & provide a powerful food source for those animals to graze upon. Without plants the earth may have been an extremely different place to what we know today, & their fossil remains have helped us piece together one of the most important factors of our existence!

PREMIER: A high quality display fossil with a photo that shows the actual specimen you will receive.
