Fossil wood from Isle of Sheppey Cut and polished Slice of Fossil Wood from the Ypresian (Eocene) of Isle of Sheppey in England. The wood is bored with Teredina Shipworms, these tubes becoming filled with yellow calcite minerals. The worms that left their traces are called Serpulid building worms. It is quite rare to find pieces as good as this too. The wood was found by ourselves in March 2014. We collect this and carry it back a few miles in rucksacks, its hard work and very heavy but its so worth it when you see the end results!
Carboniferous Plants from Whitehaven, Cumbria, UK Rare British Carboniferous (Westphalian) Seed Fern Plant fossils from Whitehaven, Cumbria, United Kingdom. These are much rarer UK plant fossils, limited access to the quarry, and large blocks that are difficult to carry. They need a good deal of breaking down, and in some cases thinning down to keep the weight to a minimum, esp for posting.
