Wood, bone, fish, mineral? Oxford Clay concretion


Recommended Posts

As it's too stormy to collect fossils...

 

Jurassic, Callovian, Oxford Clay, Peterborough Member, Whittlesey, Cambridgeshire.

 

This was something very odd I found from a concretion in the Oxford Clay. They are great for three dimensional fossils such as ammonites.

 

It looks like wood, in which case it's my first bit that isn't carbonised, or possibly bone. It could also simply be mineral. Another possibility is fish. I really wish there was more of it, that might have cleared it up, and would appreciate your thoughts.

Thank you! All the other wood I've collected from this site has been very carbonised - I assume that means it preserved more readily. It's nice to have a very different piece.
