2.7" Paleocene Fossil Leaf (Rhamnites) - Montana

This is a detailed fossil leaf (Rhamnites cleburnii) from the Fort Union Formation of Montana. It is from the Paleocene epoch, or approximately 60 million years old. The orangish 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 maybe some touchups to the surface of the leaf where bits flaked onto the negative during collection.

It comes with an acrylic display stand.
