New Stromatolite Pictures and Microfossils ~ 04-15-2014

Orsten-type Microfossils

If you click on the picture above you can see a panorama of a  Stromatolite which I believe is Collenia undosa. It’s eleven shots that have been stitched together and will give you a good idea what it like to look through the microscope. It is approximately 100X normal size and you will have to scroll through it after opening.

I added pictures of Stromatolites that are found in smaller sized rocks on my property. These are not Microfossil shots; they are just normal close-up shots. Please go to the following: Stromatolite Rocks ~ Small. Look at the designs and colors; there is so much variety.

There are of course new Microfossil shots located at: Stromatolite Microfossils.   Be sure to click on the thumbnails.

A page has been included that describes how the area I live in has inverted soil layers and you might find it interesting: Finding Fossils Without Digging

See Artifacts for some of the strange Items I have found.

Slowly but surely I am getting my website back-up after losing the entire thing. This has been a real time-consuming ordeal.

Thanks so much…Kathy

Stromatolites, BIF’s and Others ~ 03-10-2014

Orsten-type MicrofossilsSlowly but surely I am getting my website back-up after losing the entire thing.   If I didn’t have other things to do in life it might be an easy task.

I have added quite a few new pages and am trying to make them easy to understand and navigate.   What might make sense to me does not mean it will make sense to anyone else.

And last but not least, I included some of the large rocks I have that show Stromatolites.    I included what I believe to be a Banded Iron Formation (BIF), a rock that is not supposed to be found in my area.   It’s magnetic and has algae remnants, so I don’t know what else it could be except maybe what I am going to call “regular” Chert.   I need to get it tested to see if it’s a BIF.   If it is “regular” Chert, it’s in a different formation than any other rocks I have found.   The attached picture is a thin slice from the rock I show; please note the black bands.

Thanks so much…Kathy
