Sabalities sp.
Eocene
Green River Formation, Wyoming

From the layer known as the F-2 Horizon of the Green River Formation comes a golden-toned palm frond, its delicate leaves filling the limestone matrix in which it was prepared. Fossils from this stratigraphic layer are recognizable for their warm yellow-brown color as compared to the deep brown fossils from the layer known as the 18-inch-layer of the same geologic formation. This aesthetically superb specimen is framed in African Wenge wood and is fitted with a French cleat for ease of installation on standard wall construction. Measures 59 x 48in
