2.6" Detailed Fossil Leaf (Cornus) - Montana

This is a detailed fossil (Cornus hyperborean) leaf from the Fort Union Formation of Montana. It is from the Paleocene, or approximately 60 million years old. The dark orange/brown preservation contrasts nicely against the lighter shale, and many of 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 negative.

This specimen includes an acrylic display stand.
