Because I am interested in donating one of my "finds", I am looking for someone else who may have information about Pelecyopoda replaced by Turquoise. I probably collected this specimen during one of my explorations in southern Arizona in the 1980s. I have sent a couple of pictures to another member who will display it later this week...at least that's my understanding.

 

Just a side note, my degrees are from the University of Michigan, B.Sc. Geologist...1985, M.Sc. Invertebrate Micropaleontologist...1986. Only a few things since then.

 

Don't drop the sample!

What formation and location is the fossil from?

 

While searching for fossil turquoise I came across odontolite which is turquoise blue colored apatite rich fossil bones.
