Unknown weird things

Recommended Posts

I found this small stone it had a couple odd tiny items on it which i looked at under the microscopic camera and photographed.
The stone itself was about an inch to two inches I thought I had a photo of it but did not and it now lies in one of several buckets of other stones here somewhere.

The first item is striped and about the size of a half grain of rice?...the other was even smaller.

any ideas what these are?

been there done that....


*in the tags is the location= west of houston texas, brazos river...but seems like the Texas did not get typed sorry and it is in the USA.

 

*as for measurement I gave an approximate size=

*as for photographing= the items on the small stone are too small for a regular camera to get a good pic of and i used a microscopic camera 

 

I am currently trying to locate the rock to obtain better photos so for now- what we have is what we have...sorry

First one kind of reminds me of a fragment of a longitudinal section thru a bryozoan...not sure about the 2nd one....hard to see the detail and I know how hard it is to photograph tiny things--I fail miserably with my phone setup! 

Here's a photo for comparison sake from the document below...

Need to check the measurements to see if they are at least similar to yours
