Continuing on where I left off yesterday, sedimentary rock can be derived from organisms, as seen with this panel and samples.
An artificial cave was created in this area, but with Covid, this area was closed off for access.
More exhibits are to be found.
For today I leave off with another display case.
I remember learning about, and being fascinated by, all that when I was at school. And I can't have changed much in the intervening decades as I've just been reading about Mary Anning, who was instrumental in finding, and beginning to understand, fossils in S England.ReplyDelete
I´ve seen houses like that in Hamelin Pool, Australia, it is fascinating. Nature sure can be awesome, that rainbow "rock" ... wow.ReplyDelete
I wonder how many people get their first casual introduction to geology by visiting the museum.ReplyDelete
...and they are often so beautiful.ReplyDelete
My favourite area in museums!ReplyDelete
Seeing the beach here, it is easy to see how the ripples are in the sandstone.ReplyDelete
@John: her I believe I've heard of.ReplyDelete
@Iris: quite true.
@RedPat: for many.
@Marie: no doubt.
The ripples in the sandstone are interesting to see. I love the rainbow rock.ReplyDelete
I think so.Delete
Geology is always fascinating ~ you must enjoy photographing the museums ~ReplyDelete

I just read this as "An artificial cave was created with Covid...." 🧐
Maybe it's time for a break!
The stones look similar to what is exposed in our museum.ReplyDelete
I find this kind of thing fascinating.Delete
Dark forces down there are creating wonderful things.ReplyDelete
The 2nd photo is lovely.ReplyDelete
I thought so too.Delete
So many rocks and fossils; so little time.ReplyDelete
It's sedimentary, my dear Watson!ReplyDelete
