Three Detailed Fossil Leaves - Glendive Montana

 
 
These are three detailed fossil leaves (Davidia antiqua, Celtis apsperum, & Zizyphoides flabellum) from the Fort Union Formation of Montana. They are from the Paleocene, or approximately 60 million years old. The dark orange preservation contrasts well against the lighter shale, and all the veins of the leaves can be seen in good relief. There may be some touchups to the surface of the leaves where some of it flaked onto the negative during collection.

This specimen comes with an acrylic display stand.
