A friend sent me these pics from Val Verde County, Texas near the Edwards Limestone formation, about 17 miles south of the intersection of Highway 277 and Highway 55. Approximately 6-7 inches long and approximately 1.5 inches diameter at the base although oval not round. It is carbonate material, and looks like it was calcified. Any help on identification would be helpful. 1) 2) 3) 4)
Gary obtained permission for us to hunt a massive exposure of the Walnut Clay. The site was a huge aggregate quarry that was in operation for more than 60 years.

Massive outcrops and piles everywhere. Buzzard Peak is an apt name. Three peaks give evidence of long-ago volcanic activity. Miles and miles and miles of Texas. Edwards limestone with karstic features. Wildflowers. Some mysteries--probably from the Edwards cap. Ammonites and straight-line cephalopods?
