More Lake Michigan - Long Beach, IN finds.

 

#1 - just a rock? :Speechless:

#3,5 - horn corals?

#4 - favosite?

#8,9 - more coral?

 

Sorry about the photo quality/quarter as a size reference. It was the best I could do for now. Thanks for your input :)

You're right about most of these. #1 looks like a rock to me. I think #2 is as well. #3 is a rugose coral, as is #8. #4 is a coral, looks like a Favositid. #8 is also a coral. I'm not sure about #7.

For #6, you may have a look at 

Tentaculites (link to wikipedia)

6 and 3 look like gastropods to me maybe ammonites.

I think no. 2 is a rugose coral as well, with some nice silicification and crystal growth.

Nice little fossils.:)

Please don't use coins as a size reference. A lot of us here have never been to the USA and have no idea how big or small a 'quarter' is.

I would agree with Franz that #6 is a Tentaculid. #7 may be a portion of a straight-shelled nautilus.

No. 4 seems to be a bryozoan.

Nope. It's a coral. 

Number 7 may just be banded chert.

Here is what I see...

 

1 =  A cool rock

2, 3, 5, 8, 9 = Rugose coral

4 = favosite coral

6 = Tentaculite

7 = orthoconic nautiloid

Awesome, thanks everyone! I thought that the blue stone could be "Leland Blue" slag, a byproduct of the area's former iron industry.

Thanks! And sorry, I ordered a measurement mat but it has not arrived in the mail yet.

 

I see you are in Morocco– a quarter is 24.26 mm, so its size is somewhere between the 1 dirham (24 mm) and 5 dirham (25 mm) coins :)

This is indeed a possibility, maybe more probable than natural rock!
