Earlier in the week I was out checking out another prospect for work, as expedition trips are few and far between just now, when I stumbled upon the stone cladding used on the Next Store. I don’t have any call to be in this part of the Stration Retail Park normally, so I had no idea this material existed. A marine limestone of some sort and I am guessing Upper Jurassic but I’m not sure beyond those points. Quite a few cavities with secondary mineralization or infill. Almost no belemnites either.
I’ll be popping most of the general shots up on Twitter feed for #FossilFriday posts but there was one especially excited me. It is a cross-section of an ammonoid that appears to show a classic draft infilling pattern, which is showing up as thin laminated layers of sediment.
More tomorrow on Twitter and I will be adding the location to the listings on Pavement Geology.
