Large Plate of Paleocene Leaf Fossils - Montana

 
 
 
 
This is a large plate for beautifully preserved fossil leafs from the Fort Union Formation of Montana. It is from the Paleocene, or approximately 60 million years old. The dark orange preservation of the leaf fossil contrasts well against the lighter shale, and all the veins of the leaf can be seen in good relief.

There are three different species of leafs present on the plate. The three largest leafs are Beringiaphyllum cupanoides. There are a pair of Zizyphoides flabellum leafs and one Davidia antiqua leaf. The matrix is 12.5x7.5" and between 1 and 1 1/4" thick. It comes with an acrylic display stand.
