HI! New Michigan collector!
- Hi all!
I am new to the list and new to fossil collecting! I collected rocks and
minerals all thru my school years, but gave it up in pursuits of other
interests. But, I moved to MI 5 years ago and recently have discovered that
my backyrard is a treasure trove of ancient marine fossils. Mostly corals
and small shells, and of course the MI state fossil the Petoskey Stone. I am
so new to this that I don't even know what exactly I have nor do I know much
about the prehistoric history of this region. Something interesting is that
I am finding very light rocks that may be pieces of bone, but again I am not
sure. I hope this list is active and you guys can help me out! I plan on
photograghing some of my finds to show off, sometime in the future if anyone
would like to help me ID them.
Thanks for listening and it is a pleasure to be a member!
