Is This a Fossil?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

 

I was recently fossil hunting at Bolinas in California, which is known for its fossilized sand dollars. While hunting, I found this strange piece and I'm not sure if it's a fossil or not. It's from the Merced Formation, which is from the Late Pliocene to the Pleistocene in California. I have no clue what it is, but I am looking forward to hearing if anyone on the forum does. Thanks!

I think this looks like banded chert. An interesting rock, but not a fossil.

Ja, da stimme ich Rockwood zu. Ein gebändertes, wohl kieselsäurehaltiges Gestein, aber kein Fossil.

 

 

 

Yes, I agree with Rockwood. A banded rock, probably containing silica, but not a fossil.

Easy for you to say. :)

I think I get the point. :thumbsu:
