Unknown bit from Cretaceous Texas (Fredericksburg Group)

Recommended Posts

Hello all!! Was in Bell County and found this little bit - Fredericksburg Group Cretaceous. It seems to have an interesting structure. Apparently some "fishy bits' have been found in the area...is that what I have? Thanks!

Tabulate corals are apparently Ordovician which is quite a bit earlier than Cretaceous.

It is a Paleozoic tabulate coral which is reworked, brought in from a distant formation via a river or brought in by a human. Similar corals have been found in the North Sulphur River. Is it silicified? Silicified fossils can be transported a long way from their source.
