Another Northern Haul

Greetings!

 

Each summer I visit a small, secluded town in the Northern lower peninsula of Michigan. This beach in particular is just loaded with fossilized corals and shells, and I always come home with some beautiful finds. The area is known for horn corals, petoskey stones, and a related coral fossil known as the Charlevoix stone. Take a look! *Note: the last jpeg is two pictures of the same stone.*

Can't really see all that much. Any chance of higher resolution photos?

I agree better pictures would be needed, but from this I can say that the two smaller pieces in the first picture are crinoids, and the last looks like a horn coral to me.

Lots of sections through horn corals, I think.

Awesome, thanks! Is the middle fossil the body of the horn coral, or the "flowering" part?
