1.7" Fossil Leaf (Ginkgo sp., Fagus sp.) Plate - McAbee, BC

This is a 1.7" wide leaf fossil plate from the McAbee fossil beds of British Columbia, Canada. It contains a leaf from the genus Ginkgo measuring 1.35" and a leaf of the genus Fagus measuring 1.35".

Comes with an acrylic stand.

The Tranquille Shale of southern British Columbia was formed during the Eocene, about 50 million years ago: as diatoms in the lake bloomed and died in an ancient lake covering the region, fossils were preserved in the lakebed in accumulating fine layers of silt. In 2012 the McAbee Fossil Bed was acquired by the Canadian government and declared a Canadian Heritage Site, so no additional material will be coming to the market from the site.
