  location Wicklesham Pit, Faringdon, Oxfordshire

Click to enlarge   Name Pseudomorphs of Halite (Salt Crystals)
  ref SP1374
  Although technically this is not a fossil, it has come to be, by the same process of fossilisation. The specimen consists of two 10mm square crystals of rock salt (Halite), which have been dissolved and then sediment has re-filled the space left by the crystals so forming this unusual pseudomorph. A really unusual and "quirky" piece.
  Age Triassic, Carnian/Norian
  Size Size of specimen 85mm x 50mm
  location Marske, Nr Redcar, North Yorkshire, UK
 
  price £ 37.50
