3.7" Fossil Dogwood Leaf - Montana

This is a very detailed, fossil dogwood (Cornus swingii) leaf from the Fort Union Formation of Montana. It is from the Paleocene, or approximately 60 million years old. The dark orange preservation contrasts well against the lighter shale, and all the veins of the leaf can be seen in good relief. There are some minor touchups to the leaf where parts flaked off onto the other side of the rock. It comes with an acrylic display stand.
