Two Fossil Leaves - Davidia And Zizyphoides - Montana

 
 
These are detailed Davidia antiqua and Zizyphoides flabellum leaf fossils from the Fort Union Formation of Montana. They are from the Paleocene epoch, or approximately 60 million years old. The dark brown preservation of the leaf fossils contrasts well against the lighter shale, and all the veins of the leaves can be seen in good relief. There is some minor restoration to the surface to touch up bits that flaked onto the negative.

This specimen comes with an acrylic display stand.
