Proof of Teem by rkroll

Currently unavailable for purchase



Sea bottom slab containing shards from a tremendous variety of Ordovician underwater life, including coral and trilobites. The Ordovician period was over 440 million years ago and lasted for more than 40 million years. That means that this fossil is probably at least 300 million years older than the dinosaurs. Yet preserved in its matrix are a plethora of life forms from a complex ecosystem.

    love the bryozoans and the crinoids………very curious what the 2 curved fossils on the bottom area are? such an awesome piece of matrix/fossil …trade u a chunk of mine for a chunk of u’rs? :o)

  • Curved pieces at the bottom of the slab are cheek fringes from Cryptolithus tessellatus trilobites.
