Pseudofossil - Concretion

Dublin Core

Alternative Title

Calcium Carbonate concretions

Description

(DSM #SD11 and #SD12) Concretions come in all sizes and are very often mistaken for fossils because of their intricate and strange shapes. They form when a grain of sediment or organism acts as a nucleus for minerals to precipitate and grow. Some concretions contain fossils but many do not.
