The Carboniferous Lewellyn Formation runs through northern and central Pennsylvania and is the source of much of the coal in "Coal County." Along with the fossil fuel are much better preserved examples of ferns, horsetails, and confer relatives, as well as some rare insects. In addition to anthracite coal, it is composed of sandstone, siltstone and mudstone.
These fossils were found in gravel matrix from the reject pile at the Aurora Museum in N.C.. Finds by Ancient Bones, photography by old bones. Please feel free to let us know if any corrections are required.

The overwhelming majority of this Ammonite fauna is preserved as limestone molds. But they can nevertheless make very pretty pets. There is a seemingly unendless amount of sites which can be visited since a great expanse of these layers is exposed from the north of Switzerland over the Swabian Alb up into the Franconian Alb in Bavaria. The forms and variations of this fauna are also manifold and the species and genera are being continually moved about or renamed, so I can't guarantee that my IDs are up-to-date.
My main interest is fossil fish, but here in this album, you will only find invertebrates:
