Hi All, Recently I purchased some Shale from U-Dig, UT. The trilobites inside were super swell, but one of the more interesting finds was this...thing... It appears to be a circular mass, with some veins or something radiating from the center. My hopeful brain began to think it could be a jellyfish, though realistically it is highly unlikely, and I've never heard of anything like that being preserved in the shale from U-dig. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, as I am at an ABSOLUTE loss. Thanks, -Snag
Does anyone know what this creature is or is it a plant? It has stumped me for quite some time. Background - It's an old acquisition from Thornton Quarry in Thornton, Illinois. Silurian period. It measures approximately 5" x 3.5".
