And Finally ..

By BarbaraR
Hi everyone,
This is my last upload from my rock & fossils.
This is a tiny (1" diameter) Echinoid or commonly known
as a sea urchin. It has lost its spines.
Dating from the Jurassic period and around 150 million
yrs old.
I've enjoyed hearing what the other uploads looked like ..
'flowers, cakes, vegetables .. even gurning faces !' lol
I wonder what you'll think of this one !? Wink
Thanks everso much folks.
I shall enter other things soon.

Oooh! Love this wee fossil and really want to hold it as looks so tactile. Beautifully captured.

A lovely collection of fossils Barbara.I must upload a fossil I found on a beach in Wales and see what you make of it.
It is a miracle that it is complete,as it appears to be a large sponge.We will see.
Regards Robert.

Oh wow! The best til last! I would imagine that this is amazingly tactile and you have captured the detail to perfection.

Isn't nature wonderful so intricate and only an 1" in size, I won't eat this one but it reminds me of some carved ivory beads I had when I was a child!
