I have another oddity here. Found on a Tampa Bay beach in Florida. It is about 3 inches long, brittle but light weight and hollow, with one end open and one end sealed. The side hole or spout attaches to the larger opening. I did some research and it resembles a calcareous sponge. Is it a sponge? Is it a fossil or modern? Thanks as always to a great group of people! Please see 5 pics below.
I found this awesome glittery piece on the beach in Tampa Bay. It is kind of layered and has a cheesecloth pattern on it. It is about 2 x 2 1/2 inches in diameter and about 1 1/4 inches in height. It is lighter than my typical coral finds. It has what looks like 2 bore holes that go right through. I'm not seeing any corallites so I'm leaning towards a sponge. I have 3 photos-- top/bottom and one side view. (Note: photos don't capture the crystallization) What do you think it is? Thanks in advance.
I found what appears to be a small sandstone on a Tampa Bay beach in Florida. It's about 1 inch by 1 1/4 inch. After looking at it under magnification I saw unusual vein-like strands on these raised tanner bumps on both sides. What is it? Is it a fossil? Thanks Guys! Front view angles
Bronzviking posted a topic in Fossil IDI found this unusual finger-like fossil on a Tampa Bay beach in Florida. It's about 3 inches long by 1 1/4 inch wide. It has an oval indention with swirls on the end, that looks like an external bivalve mold. The finger-like piece has corallite markings on it. Is this a mold of a shell or a fossilized coral finger? Thanks!
