Description
Colonial coral fossil (Lithostrotian) in dark grey medium grained limestone matrix. Calcite crystals sparkle. Some definition of external coral structures has been lost through recrystallization. Original shape is maintained and contrast with dark matrix helps define shapes. Small crinoids, calcite veins and a Cladopora coral present in specimen (b). These types of coral fossils are very common in Western Canada and could have been collected locally.

Description
Solitary Rugose coral in medim-grained limestone matrix. Extensive recrystallization has resulted in formation of vugs (cavities). Structure very well preserved in the larger coral, smaller coral has been partially dissolved and the remainder has been recrystallized to the point that much of the structural detail has been lost.

Description
Fossilized worm burrows in impure limestone matrix. Structure of worm tubes are well preserved, tubes made up of mineral calcite. Low energy environment resulting in tunnels being parallel to bedding planes. Small pyrite concretion on one side. From the Cambrian period. Recrystallization in the limestone and orientation in the shale parting suggest low grade metamorphism has taken place.
