Coffee, Anyone?

Very nice.:)

Though I think I would spill my coffee. 

What are the spiky things in the big grey rock in the middle?

Archaeocidaris?  Looks like a great piece, would like to see it closer.

 

Looks very nice, I've been thinking of something like this for a big ichnofossil 'jigsaw puzzle' that I have, but it would be somewhat on the large side...

Is that glass on top? I would think plexiglass would be safer for something my size, unless there is a good strong type of glass that can be had for the same or less money.

I think you may be right! 

Certainly some ancient sea urchin.

Wow! What a piece! :drool:

Indeed an Archie slab under glass. I think it has 8 or 9 on it.  But why squint at that when we can look at this instead???  Counting halves, thisone has about 20.

That one is a beauty. I'd be happy with a piece with just one on it...

I'd be having a lot of coffee, then ;) 
This table is a unique idea! (well, not unless I make one when I'm older :ninja:)
