The compound leaf is an impression from a Carboniferous tree-fern, belonging to the genus Neuropteris.
A plant (with distant cousins still living wild in New Zealand, and also available from numerous garden centres across the UK) which was living in swamps around 300-360 million years ago and contributed to the Carboniferous coal deposits across a lot of the northern hemisphere.
