Calcite filled fossil clam casts

Fossil clam casts with calcite crystals.

Calcite fills the cavity of ancient Florida clams.

I love nature and anything historical and old. I walk around looking down for anything unusual or beautiful. I hold the fossil in my hand wondering what it is, where it came from, and I feel like I may be the only person to pay any attention to this one thing from the past that once was as alive as I am now. I must take it home.
