I found this shell cast on Honeymoon Island, Florida, USA. As you can see from the photos it's a complete shell cast and measures about 4 x 3 1/2 inches. I did some research and found similar pictures that looked like Turritella Shell. Would the Forum agree with this ID?? If so I read that this is an extinct species of fossil sea snail. Is this correct? I appreciate your feedback. Thank you!
Hi all, I took my Mom to lunch at Frenchy's Dunedin, Florida and than took a walk on the Causeway. I found this unusual piece that I was going to toss but kept it. It is about 3" by 2" by 2" and looks like granulated brown sugar with crystals (I think sandstone) under the eye loop. It appears to have about 4 shell casts on top with some of the seashell still embedded in the layers. On top it looks like a turtle with its head sticking out?? There is a dozen or more shell molds or imprints all over this conglomerate of sediment. What do you think of this find? Is it considered a fossil? Thanks in advance!
