About the image on this page
Bryozoan Fossil Sand
The SFMS has liability insurance has available to member clubs. That makes field trips to quarries possible. This sand was collected on a field trip to a quarry in Tennessee. It is mostly tiny, silicified (replaced by silica) bryozoans. Bryozoans are marine invertebrates that live in colonies similar to coral.
