Wholesale Lot: Metasequoia (Dawn Redwood) Fossils - 50 Pieces
We just launched our new wholesale areas. Check out the wholesale fossils, minerals & crystals section for more listings. Very little of the wholesale inventory that we currently have in stock is listed on the website. If there is something specific you are looking for, or if you are looking to purchase different quantities, please contact us at [email protected] or (866) 550-2013This 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. At the wholesale price, these specimens are $5/each
The photo of the flat only shows the first layer of fossils; there are more layers under the foam.
