Found this in Lost River site in West Virginia. Can anyone identify it? I’m thinking it could be a cephalopod


Recommended Posts

I'm not seeing any separation of chambers for it to be a Cephalopod.  :headscratch:

Looks more like a mineral vein or inclusion.


Sharp pictures from directly above the item, and each broken side might show more.  :unsure:

Agreed that this does not immediately stick out as a fossil. I have seen numerous mineral stains and inclusions that attempt to masquerade as fossils from this locality; this is likely one of them. But, as has been noted. clear photos from multiple angles might reveal some key features.
