EXTINCTIONS CHOICE - Very Rare Bursera Leaf
Stock Number  FPU314

Name:   Bursera inaequalateral Leaf
Age:  Eocene
Formation:  Green River Formation
Location:  Bonanza, Utah
Size:  Leaf is 4.1" long including petiole
Price:  SOLD

Here is a spectacular specimen of Bursera inaequalateral from the Eocene of Utah. This leaf is highly uncommon from this location. The large leaf is sort of oval in shape and exhibits strongly serrated margins in beautiful fashion. The leaf has strong primary venation and weak, alternately arranged secondary venation. The short petiole is still tightly attached to the leaf. The fossil has superb dark color and contrasts nicely with the tannish matrix. The leaf is well showcased on the large, semi-rectangular plate of shale that also contains a bug-eaten Poplar leaf. This is an extremely displayable example of this rare leaf from the Green River Shale.

A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
