ziggycardon posted a topic in Micro-paleontologyHi everyone I think I just found a new hobby With my latest fossil delivery I recieved quite a lot of microfossils & matrix vials as the world of microfossils was something that I have been long interested in. So a 2 weeks ago I finally ordered my first microfossils for which I reserved a special drawer in my archive cabinet. So here is a recapp of what I all got: 3 vials of permian material from Waurika, Oklahoma 1 vial of permian material from The red beds of Archer County, Texas 1 small vial of Conodont rich Mississippian material from the Chappel Limestone fo
Hi All, This specimen is from a pile of tumbled rocks, no provenance. My best is guess that is Rhynie chert with sections of silicified fungus or early plants. However, it might just look similar.

Thanks!
