[Editor: Beautiful find and an interested method of fossil collecting! Florida is well-noted for calcite crystal encrusted shell fossil like this whelk or conch. Very interesting both as a fossil an for display. Similar fossil are found more conventionally at the Drum Point Crystal Mine and throughout the state.]
