TqB posted a topic in Member CollectionsSpecimens of corals from the Devonian limestones of Devonshire in England are hard to come by nowadays - this is one I've just bought and repolished. It's likely to be a 19th century sample from when the quarries and marble trade were flourishing - many such pieces were sold then as scientific specimens, and many more were used decoratively. Frechastraea sp. , Givetian/lower Frasnian, Torquay area. The brass scale bar is 1cm long.
DanKurek posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsHello Everyone. In a few days, my dad and I will be heading to Torquay and the Otways for a week to collect fossils, snorkel, spearfish and relax. I have found a few fossil locations around Torquay and Marengo but was wondering if anyone knows of any legal fossil collecting sites around the Otways and what I should bring to collect in these sites. Thanks, Daniel
