Last year i collected the following Late Cretaceous Campanian specimens from a lignite layer in Henderson co., TN that has proven itself to be special to me. This is my first and only whole cone....what a sweet lil'baby! Was thinkng A sequoia species, but lets see what the experts say, I treated it w/ a preservative because i had to, the lignite was partially replaced w/ marcasite which would have soon deteoriated if left untreated. The seed & seed pod i'm not sure go together, but the seed sure looks like it may fit in something like that....the seed also stunningly looks like a redwood seed.... what is your take on these excellently preserved items?

It is quite a rare specimen and is a great addition to my opal fossils collection. This specimen was kindly given to me by my friend Shaun. Thanks mate!
