What are these rock fragments?
« on: 22/10/2015 07:09:28 »
Before I go into the whole crazy story. Can anyone help identify this stuff? The deeper I dig, the stranger things get. I'm trying to post pictures but have to resize them all first.

I didn't realize this was a fossil at first until it froze last night and exploded into chunks.

Can you tell us something about the context i.e. where this came from, the setting in which it was found and so on?

Found in Ohio on my property of 4 acres. Elevation is 1300ft and its on the glacier line. Was doin some metal detecting and had a hit, started to dig and ended up uncovering a giant boulder about a foot down and still don't know how big this rock is... I only found one edge to it so I dug down about 4 feet before I called it quits. Everything I've pulled out is buried in black clay and is covered in diamond like flake material that I was told could be muscovite. I have a lot more pictures of some strange things that need some help identifying. I did receive a response from an invertebrate specialist that identified a few of the items as cephalopod or crinoid and a tooth that needs looked at. There's also an item that has what appears to be cave drawings and ive matched it to a cave in alberta Canada. I'll post it so everyone can see and add some opinions.
