Odd wood fossil!

Recommended Posts

This fossil is odd on a number of levels! The shale is a bit crumbly - but the "stick" that protrudes on the left side of figure 1 and 2 are VERY hard. Photo 3 and 4 are the reverse side... it looks like layers of wood!  Found in an area heavy with calamites - Could these be pith casts? A  rhizoid?  I'm lost on this one!

One last thing... on photo 1 - at the top, that area is NOT wet... it is very shiny!

I think this is a poor preservation of cordiates leaves.
