EXTINCTIONS CHOICE - Very Large Ginkgo Leaf
Stock Number  FPGIN314

Name:   Ginkgo biloba Leaf
Age:  Paleocene
Formation:  Sentinnel Butte Formation
Location:  Almont, North Dakota
Size:  Leaf is almost 3.5 inches across

Here is a very complete fossil Ginkgo leaf. This is Ginkgo biloba (formerly G. adiantoides) from the Paleocene of North Dakota. This classic fossil leaf is very 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 specimen has a long petiole tightly attached to the leaf. The off-white color of the leaf contrasts beautifully with the orange matrix. The leaf is well showcased on the very large plate of matrix. This is one of the better complete Ginkgo leaves we have ever had for sale.

This fossil was collected and obtained legally, and is also being sold legally. A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
