Sometimes You Have To Whack It !!

Recommended Posts

Well today it was 33 degrees and snowing, so what else could I do but open some concretions. I had to change things up a bit because everything was getting wet, so it took a little more time to go through things.

 

This first piece really had me going for a bit, first it did not break properly so I had a number of pieces to reassemble. The reason I reassembled it was because I thought I found and damaged another fish. But after spending time on and off putting it together I discovered that it was not a fish, but a piece of bark- it is a real pain when your eyes don't work the way they use to.

Here are some more of my finds, these all came from "Across From Pit 4". I really love little concretions that have nice flora inside.

There is a tell tale cracking sound that is made when a concretion breaks nicely, as happened with this piece.

Here are a couple nice pieces of bark and subsurface bark.

Coprolite-

Here are a couple that have me stumped. I am pretty sure that the first piece may is a bivalve, but I am also leaning more towards a piece of a cone, but not positive.

The next piece is really pretty and I would rather not try to clean it up, I like the way that it looks. I am wondering if it could be Rhacophyllum corntum? Any help @fiddlehead would be appreciated.

Yes,

It is a nice example of Rhacophyllum.

Nice preservation!
