9" Plate of Fossil Sycamore (Platanus) & Oak (Quercus?) Leaves - Utah

 
 
This is a 6.4" long (including stem) fossil Sycamore (Platanus) leaf and what appear to be two Oak leaves, collected from the Green River Formation of Utah. The Sycamore leaf is in great condition and shows in-depth venation preservation. There are no repaired cracks or restored spots on this specimen.

Comes with an acrylic/metal display stand.

While the Green River Formation is best know for its fish fossils, other areas produce incredible plant fossils such as this.

A note on Green River leaf identifications. There are over 60 described leaf bearing plants from this formation, many of which have very similar leaves. We've done our best to provide identifications based on the resources available to us, but are not paleobotany experts, so we can not guarantee that all will be 100% correct.
