Hi, I found some interesting rocks in some gravel near downtown Indianapolis. Photo with the ruler is in inches, sorry to the rest of the world. 

 

Thanks in advance!

Thanks @JohnBrewer, I’ve found a bit of Horn corral at the same site but that has all been limestone. Any guess to the species?

I’m not sure you could get it down to species level. @TqB might know

There may not be enough to tell, and I don't even know what period it is - Devonian, Carboniferous?

LOL!! No need to be sorry, I think the whole world knows that an inch is the width of a man´s thumb. In some cases, its a much more handy unit than the ol´ cm or so !!:dinothumb:!!

But sorry, can not comment on your fossil, but nice find for some gravel, I like it!

What I think I''m seeing are calcite pebbles and an imprint of a pectin shell.  But maybe that's just me.
