Metacoceras?

Recommended Posts

cngodles

Found this in what I call limestone locally, but it is more of a sandstone/shale mix. Very hard, black and cement like. Squares are 1 inch. I air scribed it out of the rock, where 50% was showing.

 

My layer specifically is Woods Run Marine Zone, a hundred or so feet below Ames Limestone. It is the Glenshaw Formation. I am in Western PA.

 

Also, this is my first forum post. I have several other types to post, but I figured I would start with this.

Welcome to the Forum!  I'm sure you will find a lot of interest here in your fossils.

That looks like a very tough matrix to prep.

Hi, and welcome to the forum. It looks nautiloid, but I wouldn't stake my life on it. I'd wait for the marine fauna guys to give it a shot.

And a shot of it before I removed the matrix.
