This was found by my father some years ago at a spot on lake Champlain. Oddly this bone is definitely mineralized or at least partially mineralized, though fossil bones and such are very VERY rare to find in Vermont, it can happen in specific conditions, as was the case with a mammoth tusk found in a peat bog in Brattleboro, VT. And whale bones found on the lake as well. Any clues on this would be greatly appreciated, he’s been wondering for years, and I must say I’m pretty interested by this find since fossilized bone is so rare in my area.
Find a lot of this mostly unidentifiable stuff at the beaches of Lake Champlain in Vermont, I know that Ordovician material is found here. I’m curious about the small circular fossils, they appear on many of the rocks around the beach, any ideas? They are tiny, about 2 or 3mm
This weekend, travelled up north to Plattsburg to visit my friend Ray I know from the New York Paleontological Society. The next day took the ferry across Lake Champlain to Grand isle, Vermont and met Andy (Cluros) and his father. Here are some pics of the ferry ride over:
