This is a closeup of this "Ring" fossil.

Note the little lines and bumps inside the ring.

Thanks for the guess! I've seen a lot of smashed brachs but this is dfferent. The ring is perfectly smooth, no indication of a shell, and it appears to be filled with a sparkly sandstone, well sand sparkles :)

It appears to be a concretion around a fossil, but I have no idea what the fossil may be.

Thank you Tracefossilnut! That makes perfect sense to me! Scary, isn't it! LOL

So, maybe the actual fossil is a blastoid or cystoid or brach or bivalve, or????

could also be the lip of the "bell" of a Bellerophont type gastropod. Wouldn't be a blastoid..they weren't around till the Silurian.

Soooo, could my largest of the "Three Bumps" actually be a Bellerophont? I saw a pic that looked, to me, to be similar...

Not seeing an identifiable fossil there Bev.
