    Jen Welsh has contributed a new specimen to myFOSSIL!

    • The first picture shows some fracturing characteristc of chert or chalcedony (silicic rocks) however, I’m having a hard time viewing the second picture. Could you please upload one with that orientation but taken from the top please (instead of the side)? For reference I’m using UMass’s geo departments fossil and mineral site guide by Gleba. It’s a free downloadable pdf.

    • Thanks. Typically you won’t have that sort of texture on a scute. I think it’s chert embedded in another rock.
