    The first picture looks like a couple of seashells.
    The second looks like a fossilized plant.
    The third is my petrified Wasp Nest.

      Great finds ! Your one that looks like a wasp nest as I looked is Pleurodictyum is a type of mound-shaped, colonial tabulate coral found in Devonian-age strata. The arrangement of corallites (tubes) and the tabulae (plates or segments within tubes) seen in the detail on the right, give the coral fossil the appearance of a modern wasp or bee hive. In fact, these fossils have been reported as fossil wasp nests or hives by amateur collectors. In reality they are a type of tabulate coral.

      Well that's my story, and I'm sticking to it. LOL
      It's always nice to have individuals who know what they're talking about help identify items. Good stuff Manikin!

      I agree with Mani. Looks like brain coral to me.

      Thank for having my back Blunder :-))))
      Jono I used to have a big interest in fossils and rocks and for many years I watched a show that showed them and told about them . From Gem stones in rough to fossils . As a kid I found a few and I also loved to roam the desert looking for old indian artifacts . Dolls is not my only love and your collection is wonderful I have enjoyed seeing it !

      For the right amount of money Manikin blunderbuss will have your back, front, and maybe a side. LOL
    6. Manikin Manikin, 7 years ago
      Oh and darn my luck I am poor so I have to count on Blunder's friendship :-)

      Jono, Jamaica is full of clowns, --- problem is, they can't run a gov't. & who ever heard of a circus with nothing but clowns? Now, how much money are we talking about? Hey, I'm not only easy but cheap! And Mani, glad you get away from dolls. I've tripped over too much brain coral not to know it. I dove for maybe 45 yrs until I noticed that when fish start jumping out of the water, there was a reason & I learned to jump too.
    8. Jono Jono, 7 years ago
      Good lord manikin, blunderbuss is easy and cheap. It's going to be a long night I'm afraid.
    9. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 7 years ago
      Mani, nobody can be that poor without contemplating suicide!
    10. Jono Jono, 7 years ago
      Hey blunderbuss, we know she has a 1935C One Dollar Silver certificate with blank back

    11. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 7 years ago
      Yeah, but she won't give me her address! And hey. I used to be easy but not cheap but noticed that with age, I had to lower my price scale.(diminishing returns) with age & interest.
    12. Jono Jono, 7 years ago
      I think they call that supply and diminished demand.
    13. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 7 years ago
      You talk about a diff. law. Look up diminishing returns. I'm going to bed as I promised myself over an hr. ago.

      Well done Sis!
    15. jimborasco jimborasco, 7 years ago
      Great! Love this stuff.
    16. Jono Jono, 7 years ago
      Thanks walksoftly and Jim :)
    17. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 7 years ago
      Well, I guess diminishing demands = diminishing returns Jono. LOL
    18. Jono Jono, 7 years ago
      You got that right Lucas.
