Tales From the Shale

Here are some of the fossils I acquired in a shale roadcut I was told about thanks to @prem.

These are ordovician in age, and I have to say it was difficult to collect them due to the fragility of the surrounding material. Ive identified most of my finds, however there were these unusual pill like outlines I wasn't familar with.

i enjoyed your finds, especially the light colored graptolites. The ones found locally are always dark colored.

Nice ones! Fair bit of variety there. I think I see a small keychain type there at the bottom of the group shot.  :wub:
