Gone Hiking, Pt 5+6

Recommended Posts

Dylan

Good day to all,

Figured Id post my last two hiking trips together. Moving from small coral fossils in the river bed to much larger and defined fossils in the banks. Hard work does pay off. Ive put a lot of miles on; Whether it be bent over looking up and down riverbeds to gazing at hillsides for anything that pops out. Slowly, with a little research and time out in the field my finds just keep getting better. I stumbled onto a nice bank, which is providing most of these finds here. Some in concretions and some not. Tell me what you think! Thanks, Dyl

Just another mention. I did best with what I had. Both baculites concretions were broken already. The ammonite in four pieces, I do believe, was by far the worst. i couldn't even make out other pieces. I recovered them the best I could. 

As you can see as well I found a nice piece of gypsum. Looks to be almost an iron concentration as well.

Nice finds!  I like the opalescence / irredescence on that one.

Photos 1, 2, 4, 5, and 6 are Baculites ammonites.  Photos 1 and 2 show a cross-section of a shell, exposing the surface of the septa, better seen in photo 5.  Photo 3 shows some oysters.  Photos 7 and 8 are inoceramid bivalves, the the last photo is selenite (aka gypsum).  Nice finds!

Correction: photo 3 is a nautiloid (most likely Eutrephoceras) not a selection of oysters.  Oops!
