Fossils

This specimen is yet to be idendified. As seen in the next picture, the end has the appearance of  a perfect, perpendicular fracture and most interestingly a series of crisscrossing "cuts" along the fracture surface.

Large fossil at top right has a series of longitudinal grooves going around it. It is yet to be identified.

Worthy of a museum exhibition!

This solitary coral  (Rugosa Coral) is about 1.75 inches in height, not counting the rock, which is 6 inches in height. It dates to the Silurian and Devonian Periods--about 395-435 million years when Maine was connected with Africa on the Equator and before the age of Dynasaurs and Mammals. It was found in the debris over a limestone bedrock outcrop about 10 miles north of Stratton, Maine, in July, 2004.
