I think you are the most fortunate person in the world. I am crazy about fossils, even if it is a tiny little ammonite, I value it. After wanting to get a trilobite fossil for a long time, I even bought one from amazon.uk. Many people don't understand the worth of these adorable 'rocks', they think it is madness trying to collect these 'worthless things'. But, my parents are very supportive and I am very happy about that.
Thank you very much for sharing your wonderful collection and info.

I feel very fortunate, although my husband has misgivings about my growing collection. I love walking along the shoreline, spotting fossils and have been collecting them along this beach for years. My one windowsill is covered with the best of them, and I have donated others to a school display so I am not totally overwhelmed with them.

All your fossil spottings are amazing. This is really cool, a place with fossils scattered all around is just amazing. I feel really envious. I am an avid fossil collector, but there are very few fossil site which we can access in South India.
