Me and a buddy were looking for some limestone caves that had a bunch of calcite... long story short we drove to this abandoned marble quarry it was massive and the quality of marble was magnificent... after a long day of hiking and climing around this snarge mountain for the 3rd day and still couldnt find said cave so we headed back to the car disappointed and defeated.. we walked past a bunch of broken boulders of marble and old workings of the quary... i was admiring the beauty of this marble when i saw what looked like a clay imprint of a plant in the side of the marble.. not knowing anything about fossils having never found one and being relativity new to rock hounding i wasnt sure what to think of it and as i walked around this good sized bolder on the other side was a black imprint like on the othere side then it hit me... no one did this this cant be a carving too remote and just in a pile of boulders.... so it had to be a fossil.. but how was it so perfect and when was the last time southern oregon had bamboo...... so we didnt know what we had (still dont ) but we knew we had to get it but it was too big for the two of us so we decided to crack it down the middle so we could save both faces and put it in the truck witch we did... Now i have no idea what it is if its real or what i should do with it.. i am most likely going to reach out to a local rock club or museum but thought i would do some research on my own (considering. I know nothing about fossils) first...so heres some pics please tell me anything you can... what you think? I dont see it being a fraud i found other inprints in that area but nothing like this...
