Hi, new to the forum so please bear with me ! My Dad was a coal miner and he had several fossils which I “inherited” when he passed away 17 years ago. Among them is what seems to me to be a small, heavy petrified mussel (photo attached). It’s about an inch and a half across, very heavy and looks to be completely intact. I’m just after an explanation of how it cane to be and a rough idea of age ? It was found in amongst a seam of coal around 2000 feet below an estuary. Any info would be gratefully received ! Thanks
