I found this recently in an Early Mississippian lag deposit amongst several other fossils, including shark's teeth, bones of unidentified critters, and phosphatized inverts. From my observations, I believe that the site represents an estuarine setting. I don't find any plant material here, but that doesn't mean that terrestrial critters might not show up. I have my own opinions about the piece, but let me know what you think! Early Mississippian Cumberland Plateau Size: approximately 1cm across
Hi. I'm new to the Forum, but would like some opinions about this object I found here in Alaska. It was found in a tidal creek in an estuary in southcentral Alaska. The estuary surface is a mix of gravel, mud, and glacial silt. I've shown this to various local experts, and most think it is some kind of broken fossil, but a few think it isn't a fossil at all. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
I have about 8 acres of coastal estuary in northern Nova Scotia, and decided to take a look at the estuary sediments to see if I could find any fossils. Yes, they are there! Microfossils and lots of other life including ostracoda. Using my hand lens I could see them very well. Will invest at sometime in a microscope and maybe I will see even more. Hand lens for scale for foraminifera and ostracod scale is in millimeters.
