FO420 Fossilized Leaves

FO420 Fossilized Leaves


Here is something different from the Rock Shed’s Fossil department.  This is an exceptionally nice Fossil Leaf specimen that we believe is from the Hell Creek Formation in Montana. This very cool specimen has at least eight leaves of three different trees. The one at the top center left in the picture to the right appears to be from a Dawn Redwood (Metasequoia) and measures 2″ long x 3/4″ wide. The others look to be from Willow and Poplar like trees and possibly Sumac.  We found another neat fossil on the back of this specimen; what appears to be a Mosquito type insect. This extremely nice fossil specimen is in a light colored limestone matrix measuring approximately 17 1/2″ wide x 11 3/4″ x almost 1 1/4″ thick and weighs over 12 1/2 pounds.  A very, very nice fossil!
