My last couple of weeks were not the happiest as my dad was diagnosed with lung cancer.
Today I went to Fife to cheer myself up, and hunt for some fossils, as I cannot concentrate on anything else,
and I found lovely piece of tree fossil, and this time its a big piece.
(I do have some more questions anout other specimens, this one I wanted to share.)
I wonder what you have to find so your fossil might appear in the fossil records?
Also would you share pictures of some of your favourite findings?
Thanks a lot!!!
Hi again. Here are some of my best finds from Ossett, West Yorkshire, UK. All of these are the same age as your lepidondendron root, but where I live lepidodendron was practically non-existent, but occasionally I find some. The fossils where I live do not often preserve well because the rock is a semi sandstone, so since it is soft it often makes the fossils soft and therefore more fragmentary. In Fife, the rocks are much harder, so the fossils preserve much better.
Most of the images here are Calamites fossils are cordinates fossils, but the round one is a trigonocarpus nut (my first one ever), and my best one ever.
I think I should also mention that I hope your Dad gets better.
Oops! I forgot to post a picture of my best ever find- a Calamites fossil. It is 3 inches long, which is common, but the best thing is it is 3 inches thick! It also has no chips or bark peel. A very rare find!
