|1. A rock with a hole in it...soon it will become a beautiful necklace. 2. A strange and orange piece of coral. Look at that fantastic ridge. 3. Another small piece of coral or a sponge. Not totally sure which one it is...I still vote for coral.|
|Found in Marion County. It's a rock with a bunch of shells in it...I didn't show the whole fossil but it's shaped like a foot. My guess is a size 11 in men's shoes.|
|I think this as a very beautiful impression fossil. I've never seen a shell type fossil this large. It's shape reminds me of a tulip and the oranges and ochers of the rock are simply lovely and beautiful.|
Phew! That's a lot of fossils. As you can tell, I've been very busy tromping around on the look-out for ancient rocks. Unfortunately, the fossil hunting season is coming to a close. Two reasons: It's damn cold and the trees are dropping their leaves. Said leaves cover the ground and it's almost impossible to search for my little treasures without a rake. I'm not going to use a rake. That makes it sound like a chore. So, expect many more posts about paintings. I hope you've enjoyed looking at this year's finds as much as I've enjoyed collecting them.
