InfoHungryMom - thank you!!!  I didn’t even know Ghost Crabs were around back then!

 

The small piece of the spiral you are holding looks exactly the same size as the one on mine.

 

Also thanks for the pointer on the clay - this is the first time I have encountered it, so I’ve really been at a loss of what to do.

 

Thanks again,

Shauna :)

Just checked out the very informative scientific publication at the link InfoHungryMom sent and also did a Google search on Gyrolithes; the images of the spirals look EXACTLY like the spirals on my specimen!

Shauna- I am thrilled I was able to help!

 

I am “brand-new to fossils”, and I was very excited when I discovered this site. I realized many “rocks” I had previously collected contained fossils.  

Unfortunately, the photos I posted weren’t showing what was visible “in person”, no matter how hard I tried.  

 

I reached-out to incredible paleontologists in Maryland who have taken my family & me on amazing “learning and collecting excursions”, and

who have answered my endless questions about marine paleoecology and geology.

 

Thank YOU for the opportunity to share what I am learning as well!  

 

Karen

Iron, fossil, or meteor...it's still cool!
