3.9" Fossil Persea (Laurel) Leaf - Montana
The color of the rock and the leaves is rather unusual, and different than most of the leaves seen from the Fort Union Formation. They were collected from a locality where a fire in a nearby coal seam "cooked" the rock at sometime in the past. This changed the color and gave it a chalky texture. There is some restoration to the leaf where bits of it flaked onto the negative when split.
Comes with an acrylic display stand.
