A Boring Sunday Breaking Open Pit 4 Concretions


Recommended Posts

Today I decided to crack open a number of concretions that I collected years ago from Pit 4. I usually do not crack concretions open, but I have so many, it is one of the ways that I can get through them. I found Neuropteris, Pecopteris, Annularia, stems and bark- nothing special and they are below average finds. If I opened these in the field, I would call them Leverites (Leave It Right There), but since I am at home I could not. The below pics are the fossils that I found- if anyone in the continental U.S. would like these for free, including free postage, PM me and I will send the out. The first person to PM me will receive them. Again, they are nothing special, but they are Mazon Creek fossils. Hopefully it will be of interest in someone new to fossil collecting.

P.S.: I've still got one last nice round one in the freezer that hasn't opened after dozens of cycles since last June.

I feel your pain- I have the same experience with multiple concretions.
