Green River Formation Astronium Fossil FlowerDescription: The Green River Formation deposits of Wyoming, Colorado, and Utah are best
known for their immaculately-preserved fish, but other examples are known as well, as this
specimen attests. This is an example of a fine flower known as Astronium. Extant members of
the family include the cashew, mango, and smoke tree. Thisa one is somewhat larger than
examples I have had in the past..
