Crinoid Impressions in Gravel
Crinoid impressions in gravel are very common fossils, often found in gravel and other common stones. We realise it is strange to actually sell pieces of gravel, but… there’s a reason!
We have personally collected these pieces from gravel in river beds, and even gravel from our houses. So – why are we selling it?
A lot of children are really interested in fossils, and not everyone has the time or experience to identify common fossils. If your kids are interested in learning about fossils, and you have access to a gravel patch, you can just scatter a few of these around and help the kids find them.
It is entirely possible you’ll find more than you put in, because of how amazingly common these fossil impressions are.
They measure between 20 and 50MM long, approximately. They are sold in two grades – the grade B pieces are common impressions, poor grade. The A grade pieces are better, and are usable as study specimens.
