subsonicdrone, January 12 in Ontario
sorry about the couple blurry ones
some of these i had not come across previously (the first 4 photos in the 2nd post)
Some of those cross sections are just beautiful!
Glad you were able to get out and find these.
The fossils and the mode of preservation (colorful chert replacing some of the corals) is typical of the Devonian Onondaga Formation. This is exposed along the Lake Erie shore at Rock Point Provincial Park, and it used to be quarried extensively in Fort Erie and the area. Although the bedrock on the Ontario side of Lake Ontario is all Ordovician or Pleistocene, the material from the Fort Erie area quarries was used all around the area for fill, railroad bedding, road construction, etc so it turns up all over the place.
i have always wondered where the source of the chert was/is
do you think the piece pictured at 42s in this video could be from the same area?
ok so i dug up some of the photos from the video so you can get a better look
here are some more collected around the same time but were not included in the video
I like those pebbles with crinoid stem bits... Would look nice polished up (much as it does wet).
