Is this a piece of fossilised crinoid?
« on: 30/11/2010 20:54:10 »
I found this fossil by my house here in eastern Oklahoma. I need to take it to biology class but first I need to know what the scientific name is. Any takers? I have been looking at pictures all day and its getting old.



Thanks ;D

I'd agree with that.

Hmmm, I though it was a 1981 US coin!



Ooooo Ouch, sorry, I'm having a silly half hour.


Yep, crinoid stem.

Don,

I think that fossil is George Washington.

I think Liberty is becoming fossilized with the phrase "In God we Trust" replacing it with
"Ingot We Trust"
