Golden Bay queries

Recommended Posts

I've been trying half heartedly to get an ID on this for a while now, stoked I've stumbled on this forum! This is from the golden Bay cement works quarry in Nelson, NZ. 

Found in same area as many bivalves, sharks teeth, corals and snails.

It’s an incomplete bivalve steinkern. Sediment partially filled a bivalve and lithified, then the shell dissolved away.

Half a hole is still a whole hole. It's just easier to repair. :D
