Neat! It doesn't look like petosky stone to me, but it's definitely fossiliferous (and honestly, with composition like that I think it's a lot cooler)

It might look like a crinoid stem section, but keep in mind that I've always sucked at paleo stuff... :lol:

Neat pebble tho. :)

That's probably a good guess, since there clearly are a few smaller crinoid stems in the rock.

Please forgive my dumbness!
I contracted Lyme disease.
It affects my brain! (Not lol)
It's hard for me to rember.
The actual rock is different
Crustation? is the same.
Way cool anyway.
