Hello Gail,

Nice flowers. Any idea of the age as I'm definitely not a fossils' specialist ?

They aren't flowers. They were an animal, known as crinoids, a forerunner of the sea urchins, sand dollars and in the the echinoderms family. The fossils specimen is superb.

Hello Susan,

Thank you for the information. I'm defnitely a poor naturalist ;-). And these fossils are indeed impressive.

Just back from a long trip to Washington DC for my bicycle advocacy work. Met with congressmen and senators on the Hill. Had a nice visit to the Smithsonian for the gem and mineral hall, twice! Jeff Post was kind enough to give my friends a backroom tour, along with us of course. And day two was spent photographing almost all the minerals on display, that was quite a task. Anyhow, back to Tucson......
