Found along the Fundy coast in New Brunswick, Canada. In an area called Rockport. The stone in which this structure is encased is approximately 60cm by 40cm. It would be in the "BP" area of the map I posted. Is this a fossil? and if so, of what? Thank you for looking.
The007Fossil posted a topic in MichiganHello, I am new to this site but I have been fossil-hunting in michigan for a pretty long time. I've travelled up to Alpena for fossil-hunting multiple times in the past, but I've only really visited Rockport Quarry (and a few other sites, which I probably won't return to). I've been researching the area lately and I've been trying to locate places where I could go if I wanted to find a larger variety of fossils... In Rockport Quarry I've found crinoid stems, corals, and brachiopods, but not much else- I would particularly love to find ammonites, trilobites, and complete crinoids-- that would be a dream come true. I'm going with a friend to the regioin soon, so I was wondering if there were any places where I could find things like this... I understand that Patridge Point might contain trilobites, although the cliffs are private property... If anyone knows of any places where I could find such fossils, such information would be much appreciated!! Additionally, I've been looking into information about the strata and local formations, and I've been wondering what the Genshaw formation, Ferron Point, and Bell shale might contain (and where I might be able to find exposures of rock with fossils for the taking). Forgive me if I do not know the difference between formations or actual locations, but in my readings I've also found that the "Four Mile Dam" and "Newton River" might be places with particularly fossilferous rock- I do not know if these are actual places or simply formations. Information as to where fossils might be would be much appreciated, especially about trilobites :DDD Thank you very much!
