Coral from Post Oak Creek 10X and 60X magnified.  Guessing maybe 5mm length on this one, it has been a while.

Interesting fish vert that is not attached to a larger piece of matrix and not deformed too badly, I don't see many of these.

I think I remember that this one was an internal mold of a crab claw or other crustacean.

How many verts can you find in this pic?  Lol!   Bottom of Eagle Ford or top of Woodbine formation small 1" think plates of fish parts galore:

Nice micros, and great pictures! You have probably said elsewhere on the forum, but what microscope/magnifiers did you take these pictures with?

@ynot    After looking at your awesome micro post, I am going to have to do some more sorting and take some more pics.  I saw a few things in your post that I recognize from my gravel, but did not recognize as fossils.

Ok, I’ve been going through my micro gravel again and after seeing ynot’s awesome micro pics I am finding a lot more stuff.

 

I have a lot of pics to take, go through and organize, but here are two preview pics, one magnified and one not.

Nice little fish vert.  Again, I don’t see a lot of these that are not attached to matrix and/or  that are not badly smashed up.  Mm scale
