There are several hundreds of small to micro marine specimen in this one stone. There's complete bivalves, odd looking gastropods and things that I have no ideal as to what they are. I'm told the age of these specimen are most likely beyond two millions years old.
I have found a number of species in the Astoria Formation near Newport Oregon that are not in the literature, and I am planning on putting up a web site that describes them and makes proposals for their species names. And several of these are micromollusks.....a few bivalves, but mostly gastropods, with the smallest species being 1.2 mm high (not all that far from the world record of 0.7mm for a gastropod). And my digital camera, even in "macro-mode," can't begin to provide a usable photo of such an object. Does anyone have any ideas as far as photography equipment for small items that is affordable for someone on a strict budget? Dave
