Mollusk Fossil


Guest

Recommended Posts

Moved to FOSSIL ID.  :wacko:

 

Looks like another rock, maybe with a layer of calcite in it? 

It's possible (but not likely) it may have been a shell at one time, but, if so, it is far too eroded to make any kind of an ID. 

No diagnostic features left.

I agree. From the pictures, I’m not seeing any diagnostic detail of a mollusk valve (shell).

 

It’s still a cool looking rock and would go on my “Awesome rock, but not a fossil” shelf.

No collection is complete without one! ;)

Am I seeing things or does it have some crystal growth on the inside because that would be really cool!

I ran out of shelf 25 years -- now there's a bunch of 5-gallon buckets in the garage. :D

Yes it is a nice crystal form.

Looks like calcite sinter to me. You should actually have posted this in the rocks and minerals section.
