Cryptic Embossed Shapes Of Fossil Or Sediment?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

My first post. I don't expect this to be anything other than embossed sedimentary formations.

The specimen appears to have a top layer that has been abraded off in some areas, showing that multiple layers form this embossing.

cheers for any attempts to ID,

Nik

Welcome to the Forum. I would hate to stick my neck out on an ID but it's interesting as it does have an ichnofossil (trace fossil) look about it.. Any idea what age it is? Ediacaran?

Dessication cracks, possibly from a drying algal mat.
