EXTINCTIONS CHOICE - Excellent Ginkgo Leaf Plate
Stock Number  FPGIN305

Name:   Ginkgo biloba
Age:  Paleocene
Formation:  Sentinnel Butte Formation
Location:  Almont, North Dakota
Size:  Leaf is 2.7 inches wide

Here is a very nice fossil Ginkgo leaf plate. This is Ginkgo biloba from the Paleocene of North Dakota. This classic fossil leaf is quite large and preserves fine detail. The leaf has great form, and the palmate venation of the Ginkgo leaf is wonderfully displayed (difficult to see in photo). This fan-like leaf has beautiful golden color, which contrasts beautifully with the orange-brown matrix. The leaf is well showcased on the plate of matrix that also contains another complete Ginkgo leaf right next to it! This is a great double example of classic fossil Ginkgo leaves.
