GMR find that has me clueless

Recommended Posts

Hey-oh!

 

I found this while at GMR and I'm clueless as to what (if anything) it is. I've been though my fossil books and online but the curvature and the indention marks have me puzzled. I've not found something like this before. My luck it is a weird curious rock.. if it is, I'm just going to imagine it's a meg eye lid or something hahaha

 

As always, I welcome your thoughts and appreciate you all :)

 

Steve

GMR has been known to turn up some really odd patterned "rocks". 

Also in your tags for this post you have miocene. There is no Miocene at GMR. There is Cretaceous, Pliocene and Pleistocene. In fact there are no surface Miocene deposits in North Carolina. The Pungo River Formation at the Lee Creek mine which is Miocene is about 100 feet down.

I did not realize that! Most of the research I found listed it as Miocene as well. Thanks for the update
