    (Possibly Australian) ammonite

    Hello! The other day I visited a museum here in Perth and noticed they sold fossils in the gift shop. I bought a fossil of an ammonite as a gift for my younger sister, who absolutely loves anything prehistoric. The store gave no information other than it was an ammonite, but having bought it here in Perth I suppose it might well be from Australia at the very least. I apologise for not having more a specific location. If necessary I could send them an email and ask, though from the conversation I had at the store it seemed like the gift store staff weren't particularly well-informed themse

    Strelley Pool Stromatolite

    From the album: Miscellaneous

    A section of a stromatolite from the Strelley Pool Chert, Western Australia. Currently, these stromatolites are among, if not the oldest known fossils. There is possibly earlier evidence of life in the form of biogenic carbon, but this chert produces the oldest known mineralized preservation of organisms. Of course everyone wants to find the "earliest life," and it becomes difficult to differentiate between microorganisms and geologic structures in rocks so old, so there will always be disagreement and competition. Likely, there are older fossils already found or yet to be, but it requires a l

    Hi all, Was recently on a short break to Rottnest Island in Western Australia and found a bunch of these in the rocks near the beach on the east coast of the island. I thought they looked like giant isopods but have no idea when they are from or if I am remotely close? Any suggestions? Ta Dan
