pambosk posted a topic in Fossil IDHello from Cyprus, warm wishes for exciting finds to everyone! Here is a relatively bigger oyster than my usual finds, this one is complete and inside small crystals have formed, could be calcite not sure.

Hello I wasn't sure if I should post this in minerals instead, but let's check it out here. Found in Paramali, turtle beach, east of akrotiri area, when facing north. It is obvious that I found the two pieces of a cracked single. The 'eye' shape in 1b, matches the location of the whiter spots inside.

Its 25cm long and the center 17cm high, it looks like hmm some sort of triple fin, or fish or exploding angry eel ... something that belongs to the sea anyway some more photos next post
