Ecologists from a university along with students at a school found many examples of what they believe to be leaf fossils that are 100,000 years old.

 

An earlier find at the Pha Kao waterfall in Wang Nam Khiaw, Nakhon Ratchasima, was thought to be from the Pleistocene epoch that lasted from 2.6 million years ago to around 11,000 years ago, reported INN.

Imprint fossils of many plants are quite affordable and come from various time periods. Fossil ferns and horsetails from the Carboniferous Period (359 to 299 million years ago) typically cost $15 to $40. Leaf imprints from plants of the Eocene Epoch can be purchased for $50 or less. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes and sometimes are very detailed. Small Dawn Redwood fossils are some of the most inexpensive imprints. They only cost $5 to $10 and date back to the Oligocene Epoch (34 to 23 million years ago).

You can buy them for $5, children collect them 🤣
