The assumed fossil  at top right is in a cavity and is difficult to photograph as seen by the naked eye. It has the appearance of a re-crystallized bone joint such as of  a toe digit. It is well formed and very discernible. The fossils in the  limestone matrix are not as discernible and indicate the metamorphosis of the limestone.

This specimen is yet to be identified. As seen in the next picture, the end has the appearance of  a perfect, perpendicular fracture and most interestingly a series of crisscrossing "cuts" along the fracture surface.

Large fossil at top right has a series of longitudinal grooves going around it. It is yet to be identified.

Worthy of a museum exhibition!

This solitary coral  (Rugosa Coral) is about 1.75 inches in height, not counting the rock, which is 6 inches in height. It dates to the Silurian and Devonian Periods--about 395-435 million years when Maine was connected with Africa on the Equator and before the age of Dynosaurs and Mammals. It was found in the debris over a limestone bedrock outcrop about 10 miles from Stratton, Maine, in July, 2004.
