I noticed this fossil in the limestone at the base of the great pyramid whilst on holiday. Reading online there are quite a few Nummulites in the rock of the pyramids themselves but not much information on larger finds and unlike the quarried and transported stone of the pyramids themselves this was seemingly part of the natural giza rock forming base around the structure. Im very much an amateur at this but out of pure interest I was wondering what you all may think of it?
Hi, could you, please, help me with this fossil? Approximate dimensions: 4 x 2 cm (1.6 x 0,8 in) I suppose it can be fragment of some gasteropod, but I can not find anything similar on the Internet. I have found it in Egypt, near the pyramids of Giza. There were also lot of numullites and bivalve. It should be of Eocene age (stage Lutetian, formation Mokattam) More information: http://www.paleoweb....ky/05_Egypt.php Thanks, A.
