MD Fossils 101

Recommended Posts

I see two crinoid stem impressions and a bivalve (possibly brachiopod) impression in a stone.

I agree with @grandpa. Your fossils are much older than what is usually found at Purse so it is probably a cobble that was eroded out of the Paleozoic deposits in the Appalachians and washed downstream. Cool find!

The little round shapes might be the ends of tentaculites molds. Definitely Paleozoic imports.
