THIS ONE HAS SEXY FOSSILS-  heck, I can even feel the cockles clamming-up over this one!   Sooooo...     did I get this right? (Not volcanic glass, and definitely from “ancient water”....right?).

 :-D

Yeeeehaaaaaa!!!!   

 

Sooooo, what else is in there, please?  There is something in the back of the rock/specimen as well. :raindance:

 

This is loaded with “stuff” to my untrained eyes...  and the photos aren’t helping (taken w/my cell phone inside).  

 

I have collected for years, but never intentionally looked for fossils.... thank you all for the info....  and , ummm, my limit is time... not samples nor questions!

I do not see anything else that is identifiable (from pictures).

May need an in hand look to be able to make any guesses.

Shouldn’t I respond why not ynot?

 

Just a hop, skip, jump, and 5 hour flight away!

 

Thank you for looking- It did not photograph well!

 

I apologize in advance to you and everyone when I ask zillions of questions....   again, I have collected at every possible opportunity (there are never enough of those), but I have amassed an enormous amount of “stuff”!

I am sure there are others sources that are much closer. Try a local rock club or museum.

Thank you, ynot.  I’ve done the “Rock Club” route before.  In college, I went so far as to switch to a double major in college-  from a triple major of math/computer science/management to the double major of ‘ “rock-and-roll”.

 

I met quite a few people who were stoned, who really dug school.... you can take it from here....

There could be, but that first one looks more like a favositid to me.

It is hard to get a good read on that center though.
