This fossil comes from the famous Fort Union Formation, living around 60 million years ago. The Gingko genus is one of the oldest living ones found on Earth today. Many of its species were thriving during the time of the dinosaurs. The only living fossil still found today is the species Gingko biloba. Because of the status of these plants, fossils from their ancestors are often highly sought after and make their way into private collections fairly quickly. This is the only one we have at the moment!
