5.4" Fossil Leaf Plate - Green River Formation, Utah

This is an interesting fossil leaf plate from the Green River Formation, Utah. It contains two unidentified leaves: a larger, paler leaf (3.1" including stem) and a smaller, darker one (1.6"), possible of the elm or sumac families. Various other plant fragments are also present, as well as a faint impression of a samara (winged fruit) wing.

While the Green River Formation is best know for its fish fossils, other areas produce incredible plant fossils.

It comes with an acrylic display stand.
