Metasequoia (Dawn Redwood) Fossil - Montana

This is a well defined 1.7" long Metasequoia (Dawn Redwood) fossil from Montana. It is Oligocene in age and the dark preservation contrasts well against the light colored shale. Comes with a Riker mount display case.

The Metasequoia genus was considered extinct until a living population was discovered in China in 1941. This makes the dawn redwood a classic example of a living fossil.
