Hi! In the same (calcareous) region of Lake Junin (or Lake Chinchaycocha, in quechua), in the High Central Andes of Peru, where I was investigating Maca (Lepidium meyenii Walpers) I found in tne 1990's this nice coral fossil specimen at the altitude of 4200/4300m. Measure below in cm. What do you think about it ? Thank you in advance ! Warmfully Pierre-Olivier Combelles Institut Andin d'Etudes Ehnobiologiques (France)
Hi colleagues and friends, I have been findind and often collecting tose eye catching elongated fossil corals on the Hispaniola island, like "Pirouline's rolled wafers". They have a cavity inside on mostly case and have up to 3 inches diameter I guess. As I'm not very familiar with these coral fossils, can you please help me to ID these fossilized corals and comment anything about the environment, ages, behaviors, occurrence, distribution, etc. Thanks a lot for youn kindly help colleagues!
Hi, here is another fossil I can't seem to figure out. While walking through the woods adjacent to my house, I saw this strange rock laying on the forest floor. It was covered in dirt, and it first seemed very organic (the underside of the fossil crumbled a little). But, I quickly realized it was a fossil. Although it appears dirty, I cleaned it off as much as I could. Its probably some kind of marine plant, but I'm not really sure. This was found in Alamo Township, Kalamazoo County, Michigan. Any help would be great and if more pictures are needed from different angles just let me know.
We found a couple of interesting pieces west of Salton Sea and east of Anza Borrego does anyone know from what era these can be from and what they might be? Thanks for the information We believe this is Petrified Wood Specimen 1 Specimen 2 Specimen 3, looks like a petrified plant of sort, not sure what. We think a cactus, because of the holes Specimen 4 we think might be coral but have no idea what type, all of these pieces were found around each other Thanks for the information.
