A and B; can't really tell either way. C? Seems like a definite no, but what it is; hard to tell. Reminiscent of a shell. D; looks like pumice, not very likely.

I would need a full field of what is shown in the third picture.

It looks to me like a part of a fossil.

 

Best,

JG

D - seller claimed it to be Trinitite

 

C - from shoreline across the street , yes I believe it is fossil but what 

 

A & B - supposedly NWA unclassified stoney 

 

  Thanks Lee and JG , as I do not know , accept decision by your experienced eyes . Would any other pics help identify possible fossil  or meteoric origin ?

D does look very much like Trinitite.  Coincidentally I just got a couple of pieces myself.

We need a whole picture for the third sample. It's a fossil, most likely.

It could be the negative fossil of a bivalve, an ammonite or perhaps some plant.

Good call! And fairly straightforward to verify.

"C" could be part of the thorax body with the pleural lobes of a fossil trilobite.

But I would need a complete picture to see if it is a trilobite or not.

Paleontology of the trilobites used to be a hobby of mine in the past. Still keeping a large collection.

Hope the meteorite folk are not to upset with a fossil posting here . For J Gardavsky here are shots of the specimen, there are many on the rock face and shoreline in front of my place . Located about 10km across the bay from where this story was detailed,  https://www.cbc.ca/n...-cove-1.6709609

 

 its a small world in some respects , born in Soest W. back in the 50’s

 

 Here are full pics of specimen

Thank you for the pics.

 

This does not look like a trilobite.

Maybe bands of stromatolites?

 

Best,

JG
