Hope I'm not boring everyone as I'm going through my pile, my curiosity has no limits. Found all these at various North Texas creeks, probably all concretions just wondering if there's a name to put with them. One looks like my dogs poop, wondering if it's coprolite. Appreciate any feedback!
Good morning all! Hope everyone is healthy and starting to get back to normal, whatever that will be! Found this yesterday below a roadcut in Kansas City laying by itself. The shape instantly caught my attention, and when I looked at it, I believe it is a totally encrusted large bivalve/clam! Very similar to the large native freshwater clams we have around here. The encrusted material is limestone- there are crinoid parts/what appears to be sea urchin spines and "hash". You can see faintly concentric lines.

Ok This and many more I found on "Paniotis formation" in Limassol lets call it that, coz I can't find it on the maps, but after cross referencing from 3 geological maps it is supposed to be Miocene territory. As i mentioned before that formation is a small oval shaped hill 3-4-5km from the sea, 3x6km on top with steep edges, about 100m tall. And at some point I found some sedimentary formations moving in nicely shaped curves and after that huge formations full of shells corals sponges maybe some fish, plants who knows..Those formations are 4m high above ground but i am guessing they go
