Midland TX Flower Bed

Recommended Posts

MSirmon

Was working among some river rocks in a flower bed in a midland TX and ran across this. Not sure what it is but think it looks toothy. I am not sure on the origin of the rocks in the bed. If it is great but if not it will go into my really cool rocks collection.

To me it doesn't really look like a fossil, maybe just a piece of concretion?

One is clear. It has high iron content (pyrite, marcasite, goethite...).

Looks to be a rock, as indominus said most likely a concretion, which is basically a rock with high mineral content; for example iron concretions, copper concretions, etc. etc.

I will go with a iron concretion on limestone.
