1.7" Detailed Fossil Hackberry Leaf - Montana

This is a detailed Celtis asperum (Hackberry) leaf fossil from the Fort Union Formation of Montana. It is from the Paleocene epoch, or approximately 60 million years old. The dark red-brown preservation of the leaf fossil contrasts well against the lighter shale, and all the veins of the leaf can be seen in good relief. There may be some touchups to the surface of the leaf where some of it flaked onto the negative during collection.

This specimen comes with an acrylic display stand.
