Plax posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionAm guessing this might be posted elsewhere but thought it was worth reiterating if so. The North Carolina Fossil Club is having their annual Fossil Fair this Saturday, November 2, 2019 at the Cape Fear Museum on Market Street downtown Wilmington, NC. Hope to see some of ya'll there!
Have some fossils I would like to donate to a teacher/School/Cape Fear Museum. Looking for something in the Wilmington area. If any one has any contacts let me know. Some plant material from West Virginia, bunch of echinoids from North Topsail, pile of Dugong rib bones and some other odds and ends
Found a gastropod steinkern last week from sequence 3 of the Castle Hayne Formation with some unusual inclusions and mineral growth. The steinkern has a highly polished surface but has been partially coated with minerals. The coating is presumable calcitic but also has some marcasite? crystals adhering. A natural window into the shells sediment content shows small spiral fossils and a neat dendrite. Gastropod is 2.25 inches longest measure. Pics were taken with DinoXcope.
