Jurassic fossil slabs and fossil wood from the Stainton gravel beds
1 - Jurassic lime stone slabs containing mainly Gryphaea.
The flat underside of the oblong slab shown at the end of the tool is i think a Genicularia vertibralis.
6 Unknown layer maybe silica ?
What i believe to be more fossil wood that had been exposed to heat.
10- Unknown indentations in silt or mudstone.
12- Unknown heavy piece this fractured perfectly while i was giving it a rub.
15- I think this is volcanic tuff the colour is mainly violet.
18 - This piece is made up mainly of rugose coral i think with the odd crynoid stem.
19 - Graphite
20- Very light and shiny coal ?
