A prime example of fossilized barnacles traced to the Paleozoic Era, Devonian Period (between 360 million to 410 million years ago). Barnacles play an important role in estimating paleo-water depths. A barnacle is a type of arthropod belonging to the infraclass Cirripedia in the subphylum Crustacea, and is hence related to crabs and lobsters. This specimen is perhaps of the Regerella species. Overall size measure 5 inches by 5 inches. Location: King George, VA.

Busycon is a genus of very large edible sea snails, marine gastropod mollusks, in the family Buccinidae. These snails are commonly known in the U.S. as whelks or Busycon whelks. Busycon comes from the Greek: bous meaning cow and sykon meaning fig; translating to large fig. This is one of the few genera of gastropods in which the shell may coil either to the right or the left. These fossils date to the Cretaceous Period of the Mesozoic Era (65 million to 136 million years ago)...

An outstanding example of a carbon film of a fern from the Paleozoic Era, Carboniferous / Pennsylvanian Period. Very rarely organisms containing a high content of carbon (i.e. plants) are subjected to extreme pressure and heat. These conditions force all gas and liquid from the organism leaving a thin film of carbon residue, forming a silhouette of the original organism. Overall size measures 3.5 inches by 3.5 inches. Age: 300 million to 360 million years old. Location: King George, VA.

Grouped here are a collection (colony) of shells that resemble the familiar scallops both in shape and in having radiating grooves and ridges on the surface. Devonochonetes are true bivalves; however, the belief is there was an appendage at the base of the shell to keep the organism upright within a colony. The example here was found at Monroe Bay, Westmoreland County, Virginia along the Potomac River. These organisms lived in the Devonian Period making them 345 million to 395 million years old....

Diploria labyrinthiformis, known by the common name grooved brain coral, is a species of stony coral in the family Faviidae. Found in tropical areas of the west Atlantic Ocean, it has an appearance that makes it familiar to many. This species of reef-building coral has a hemispherical, brain-like shape with a brown, yellow, or gray color. It has characteristic deep, interconnected double-valleys. These polyp-bearing valleys are each separated by grooved ambulacral ridges. There may be a differen...
