Three Fossil Leaves (Beringiaphyllum & Davidia) - Montana

This is a plate containing multiple detailed fossil leaves from the Fort Union Formation of Montana. They are from the Paleocene, or approximately 60 million years old. The dark orange preservation of the leaf fossils contrast well against the lighter shale, and all the veins of the leaf can be seen in good relief.

The two stacked leaves labeled "30" are Beringiaphyllum and the leaf labeled "5" is Davidia. There may be some minor touchups to the leaves where parts flaked onto the other side of the rock when split. The rock measures 6.3" long by 5.2" wide and is accompanied by an acrylic display stand.
