Two Detailed Fossil Leaves (Zizyphoides & Davidia) - Montana

This plate features detailed fossil leaves of Zizyphoides flabellum and Davidia antiqua from the Fort Union Formation of Montana. It is 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.

It comes with an acrylic display stand.
