Fossil Friday!

We covered the Burgess Shale in my last Fossil Friday, and this week keeps up the theme of famous localities.

Anyone recognize the distinctive color of this rock? Where is it from? And what is the UFO-looking thing preserved in it? No hints this week—it’s too easy. After all, you can see something just like this at many beaches along the east coast. Shoot. Was that a hint?

Bragging rights on the line…who’s going to get them?
