Sedimentary rock is the only rock in which fossils occur.
Fossils are remnants or prints of dead organisms. I
In nature, dead organisms are usually not preserved for long: by scavengers and bacteria, rot and erosion, most carcasses will disappear quickly.
They can, however, be preserved: for example, if there is a rapid sedimentation or anoxic conditions so that no rot can take place, or if the organism had a rigid skeleton.
Larger and well-preserved fossils are relatively rare.
Most sedimentary rocks contain fossils, although they may only be visible through a microscope (so-called micro-fossils) or hand lens.
Note: The coaster of petrified wood is not included in the auction and will NOT be delivered !!
