1.1" Cretaceous Fossil Ginkgo Leaf on Rock - Russia

This is a fossil Ginkgo leaf preserved on rock collected from the Middle Cretaceous Baikal Formation of Siberia, Russia.

Comes with an acrylic display stand.

During this time on the Paleocene epoch the Ginkgo genus was only represented by a single polymorphic species, Ginkgo adiantoides. This species was distributed in much of the Northern regions of North America which had a hot, humid climate. It's leaves were virtually indistinguishable from modern-day Ginkgo biloba. The species Ginkgo adiantoides went extinct approximately 7 million years ago.
