Hello

I am very new to this so I apologize for the ignorance, I wanted to know if I found anything interesting, I know there is a few crinoid stems but any clue about the rest?

Thank You so much for any help!

Hello!

The plates look like they were laid down in a fairly high-energy environment; that in itself is interesting :)

Now, about the last item: is the color fairly true, ie blue? Some interesting paleozoic material habitually fossilizes in an unusual blue color...what size is it, and where abouts are these from?

Picture 1 and 3 show fragments of crinoid stems, picture 2 on the left a fragment probably from a bivalve. Picture 4? (crushed brachiopod??)

Looks like broken Mississippian brachiopods and crinoid pieces. The brachs in the second picture look like Orthotetes sp. to me.

Thank You everyone!!

Also @Auspex:

The blue might be a hue from a camera, the acctual piece is dark black, about an .75" in size. It is imbedded in huge blocks (picture below) on Arkansas River in Oklahoma.
