Huge Ginkgo Leaf with Outstanding Venation
Stock Number  Z1014092

Name:   Ginkgo biloba
Age:  Oligocene
Formation:  Sentinnel Butte Formation
Location:  Almont, North Dakota
Size:  Leaf is 3.65 inches across

Here is a very displayable Ginkgo fossil. This is a large Ginkgo biloba (formerly G. adiantoides) leaf from the Paleocene of North Dakota. This fossil leaf is quite nice and preserves fine detail. The leaf has great form, and the palmate venation of the Ginkgo leaf is wonderfully displayed (somewhat difficult to see in photo). The off-white color of the leaf contrasts beautifully with the dark brown matrix. This is a very nice Ginkgo leaf from North Dakota.
