Back in Oct. the Dayton Gem and Mineral Society had a field trip to the St Paul Stone Quarry in IN. Waldron shale. I've been slowly prepping my finds (along with other stuff) and finally completed my task.

By far the most different piece I've found in a long time....a Rafinesquina-type brach covered in a bryozoan, with a Calymene face sitting on top, surrounded by pyrite. Size = 1.5" W x 1" D x 1" T.



A complete, 3/4 prone Calymene. About 1.25" long.



Some complete gastropods, all whose brown "shell" is pyrite.



Some gastropods that aren't pyrite.



A few brachiopods.



Some crinoid calyxes.



#7 Some some small pyrite brachiopods.



And some tabulate corals.
