Alas, none. But my man-cave is so full of fossils now that I have little room for more.

The green coating is Glauconite and is typical of the gastropods/bivalves of the Gull River formation from quarries in the area of Waubaushene & Coldwater (near Georgian Bay).

"Glauconite"...I keep forgetting that name; thanks Northern Sharks. And that is indeed where these "green-hued fossil" rocks originally came from.
