Aren't they though??  I love them anyways, but to find them looking like they are covered in glitter?? Crazy.

There are pockets of fossils, but they are rare!

I probably would have thought ammonite (or maybe gastropod) at first glance as well, since I’m unfamiliar with these particular oysters. Thanks for sharing! They are very nice, and I learned something new. :)

Nice finds.

Love those pyritized specimens and the echinoid is beautiful.

Yes they look very ammonite-ish with that coil. I thought they were gastropods for a long time, but apparently they are indeed oysters. THey are very common here in Central Texas, but this is the first time i've seen them pyratized! 

 

This is what they look like usually:
