Quick Overview

Fossil leaf plate / Montana, USA

More Information:

Leaves and other fossil plant specimens, although complex, are also unique in their simplicity and beauty. They give someone a feel of what the land and forests must have looked like during different time periods.

Most fossil leaf plates lack the necessary detail or contrast in order for the specimens to "jump" off of their matrix canvases.

However, this fossil leaf plate from Glendive, Montana, USA is simply as good as it gets. Each specimen has excellent color and the detail is superb.

Each leaf is marked with a removable color-coded decal sticker for easy identification. The plate can either be mounted to a board for wall hanging or it would look fantastic with a stand support, which we would include.
