Fossil Rhus (Sumac) Leaf & Unidentified Leaf - Green River Formation

These are Eocene aged fossil leaves from Rhus sp., a sumac and and unidetified leaf. The Sumac leaf is 1.5" tall and the other is 1" (including the stem) and on a piece of shale matrix. They are beautifully preserved with crisp edges and a nice dark color. Fine details are easily seen on the Sumac leaf.

It comes the Green River Formation and the area in Uintah County, Utah. This is the same formation that is famous for producing well preserved fish fossils, but a different member and location.
