Over a year ago when I was just starting to hunt and collect fossils I came across this the ravine slope of a creek that cuts through the Winterset limestone at my old house. It could be washed from another formation. It looked interesting so I kept it and have been trying since then to identify it. I’m not sure if I’ve landed on the right thing – or even if it’s a fossil but I am thinking it might be a beekite ring similar to the one here https://lakeneosho.org/Paleolist/99/index.html only more 3D. It’s also quite possible it’s just quarts and I’ve just looked at it too long! However I’m curious what y’all think?

You gave it away with y'all :) Never heard of that, have no idea if it is but it's cool! Now I have to go look at my rocks again.

Yes, looks like beekite or a near silicate.

@Coco Thanks!


@abyssunder Thanks for that! I had looked through it and my specimen looked similar enough that I think I'll label it as such.
