Very common finds in Arizona but what are they?


Havasu

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow fossil members. I live in Lake Havasu. Enjoy the forum very much.

 

I come across these two rocks, maybe fossils all the time but have no clue as to what they are. They are found near Lake Havasu in the Topack area of Golden Shores. Was an ocean bottom at one time.

 

The small grey rock is  2 inches long and one inch wide and 1/2 inch tall. It is very light and grey color.

The second image with two rocks in it look like teeth. They are covered in a white enamel looking material almost like white cake icing with a darker interior.

They are both about 4 inches long and two inches wide and very light. The outer white band is very smooth.

 

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Test top rock with HCl to see if it fizzes. It might be a heavily eroded piece of limestone.

My goal is to leave no stone or fossil unturned.   

See my Arizona Paleontology Guide    link  The best single resource for Arizona paleontology anywhere.

Possibly chert on the second photo items.
