This is a piece of limestone filled with fossils that once sat at the bottom of a salt water ocean in Michigan. These fossils date back to the Devonian period.


This is called a "hash plate" because it is a hash of the fallen organic materials on the bottom of the ocean that became fossilized. A hash plate is a mixture of many different plants and animals.

This is also known as a "death plate" or "mortality plate" because it is a permanent snap shot of a mass of dead animals.


The stone may include some or all of the following:

Corals - Cladopora, Favosites (Charlevoix stone), Hexagonaria (Petosky Stone), Horn Corals, Arachnophylum (Colony Rugose Coral), Syringopora, Halysites (Chain Coral), Aulopora

Mollusks - Cephalopods, Gastropods

Crinoids - stems and other pieces
