This is a very aesthetic specimen of Metasequoia occidentalis from Montana. This specimen is unique in the fact that it shows a multi-branching limb. There are about ten fronds attached to the branch - this is a very rare occurrence. The branch has great color and wonderful contrast. It is well centered on a natural plate of matrix. This is a superb display specimen of a full ''dawn redwood'' branch from the Oligocene.
