Found my first sea urchin in the gravel today, along with a really nice rose quartz belemnite. That's my 5th complete one of those, and I'm finding more.

Blinking flip Echioceras, that's great going, well done! I wish my garden was so productive - you must have dug deep! Are you sure the ammonoids and trilobites were found together though? True ammonites did not evolve until after the extinction of the trilobites, so it would be interesting to know what was going on as it's hard to explain the two being found together.

Some pictures would be great though!

Alright, I'll post a few pictures soon. Some of the gravel is local Eocene, while some is the cephalopod stuff. The "trilobites" I found are probably just wishful thinking, but a few look like tails.

P.S the total is now 346!
