Here is a very displayable fossil Ginkgo leaf. This is Ginkgo biloba (formerly G. adiantoides) from the Paleocene of North Dakota. This fossil leaf is quite distinct and preserves fine detail. The leaf has great form, and the palmate venation of the Ginkgo leaf is wonderfully displayed. This specimen has a long petiole tightly attached to the leaf. The nice, white color of the leaf contrasts beautifully with the orange-brown matrix. The leaf is well showcased on the large plate of matrix. This is a very fine Ginkgo biloba leaf from North Dakota.
