Wow. 

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.

awesome info!

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?

I like those pebbles with crinoid stem bits... Would look nice polished up (much as it does wet).

Without any numbering on the posts/photos it's hard to make it clear what specimen I am referring to so I hope you can follow this.  In the third set of photos you posted today the first photo is a trilobite pygidium, and the second is likely the coral Synapophyllum.  The last photo in the last set also seems to be trilobite bits.

Number 2 is a nice steinkern of a gastropod like Hormotoma sp.. Numbers 3 and 4 are definitely hash plates, with the #4 being predominantly brach and gastro hash. Of course, close up images of any features you find intriguing are always in season. ;)

Some lovely pieces! 

Some of those crinoid columnals in pepples are beautiful. 

I like the chain coral as well. :)

These look familiar to me... I acquired some similar pieces from an old rockhound couple in Nanaimo some years ago, and I've been trying to track down their place of origin ever since (they're now gone so I can't ask them). See below - What do you think? In the same lot from that old couple I got certain other items that I am quite certain are from Ontario too, so I think it's more than likely that these are from there too, as opposed to the US or any other place.
