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.
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.
