Re: Fraudactylus

It looks to me to be a piece of Teepee Trail Tuffaceous SS (Eocene) from North Western Wyoming. I have collected the stuff before and recognize the rock, the characteristic fracture, the color and the blocky corner cleavage along with the type of preservation of the leaf material. I have some identical plant fossils except mine didn't have Jurassic Fossils (clearing throat deeply) on the back. Humm, Wyoming Eocene on one side, German Jurassic on the Back. Quite an unconformity don't you think? Wild Flysh too. How about trying some lithography with that sandstone too. Might work better than the original lithographic limestone huh?

look at the last pic in the series...there appears to be an oak leaf (an actual fossil by the looks of it- the only legitimate thing about the whole pieces!) on the back of the plate

Maybe a little too steep for a piece of art work.

That appears to be in the same vein as this:
