7.5" Plate of Four Fossil Leaves - Green River Formation, Colorado

This plate contains four fossils leaves from the Green River Formation of Colorado. The largest leaf is a fossil sycamore (Platanus) leaf. The other three leaves are unidentified. The leaves are in good condition and the dark preservation color stands out nicely against the lighter stone. While the Green River Formation is best know for its fish fossils, other areas produce incredible plant fossils.

Comes with an acrylic stand.

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.
