Lot: Metasequoia (Dawn Redwood) Fossils - 50 Pieces

This is a wholesale flat of 50 pieces of shale with Metasequoia (Dawn Redwood) fossils from Montana. They are Oligocene in age and the dark preservation contrasts well against the light colored shale. 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.

Most of the shale pieces are between 2-3" wide. A few are larger, a few are smaller. Some of the pieces of shale have multiple fossils on them, but only count as one piece in the count.
