4.4" Fossil Ginkgo Leaf From North Dakota - Paleocene

 
This is a beautiful fossil Ginkgo leaf (Ginkgo cranei) from the Sentinel Butte Formation of Nouth Dakota. It is finely detailed and the light preservation contrasts well against the dark orangish-brown rock. There is another small partial Ginkgo leaf on the front of this specimen as well as several partials on the back.

Comes with an acrylic display stand.

This species was distributed in much of the Northern regions of North America which had a hot, humid climate. Its leaves were virtually indistinguishable from modern-day Ginkgo biloba.
