HARDER and Harder to obtain fossils from this private quarry in Middleport, New York

Fossil graptolites are thin, often shiny, markings on rock surfaces that look like pencil marks, and their name comes from the Greek for ‘writing in the rocks’. They are the remains of intricate colonies of creatures that lived in small “tubes” that were often crushed during fossilization.

The Graptolite is  is 2 1/4 inches by 2 inch, sitting on an irregular matrix 5 1/2 by 5.

This is definitely a must have for Rochester Shale Lagerstatte collectors.
