METASEQUOIA (DAWN
​​​​​​​REDWOOD) LEAVES 


30 million years old

Muddy Creek Formation
Montana, USA


The Metasequoia or Dawn Redwood is a fast-growing deciduous tree. It has only one living species, which is native to Hubei province, China.

However, in the geological past it was very widespread and three fossil species are known. Before its discovery in China it was considered extinct and is therefore often referred to as a ‘living fossil’.


These are beautifully preserved and very attractive little fossils.

Please note:  The photographs are typical examples of what we have.  You will receive the best example from our current stock.
