Two Paleocene Fossil Leafs (Davidia) - Montana

This is a matrix containing two detailed fossil leafs of Davidia antiqua 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 fossils contrasts well against the lighter shale, and all the veins of the leafs can be seen in good relief. There are some minor touchups to the leafs around their edges, where parts flaked onto the other side of the rock when split. It comes with an acrylic display stand.

Davidia is a medium-sized deciduous tree in the dogwood family
