No clue, but interesting

Recommended Posts


New to the forum and I've had this for about a year now and thought I'd toss it out there to see if anyone else finds it interesting. Unfortunately I don't have a lot of info on this. I found it at an estate sale and it was fairly low price so I thought I'd take a risk and grab it because I've never seen anything like it. Was told the owner originally got it in a shop in Utah and was told it was an egg. It had been in a fire (you can see scorch marks on the top, where there looks to be the spine) but pretty well intact. I don't see any obvious hard shell but I do notice flaking of what looks like sedimentary layers on the back side so I think it might be a concretion. Either way thought it was interesting and maybe I am just seeing things but one part sure looks like a rib cage

Looks to me like part of a spiriferid brachiopod, and some orthocone cephalopods.

I agree with Tim. A piece of paleozoic hash.
