Pearl found rockwall tx.

(Rockwall texas )

Round white pearl found while fossil hunting. I have found some incredible fossil. Ozan formation. When I first saw it I thought a white marble, but thought again how could it possibly have gotten here so picked up and brought home. After a lot of web research, took up close pics to see if the surface looked like a sand dune as mentioned. I placed it on one of the dinosaur bones in my collection from same area and photo about 3inches away. Open photo and zoomed in and there it was, like sand dune. Measure. 506 -.510 diameter. Awesome. Not sure what to do with it.

Hello Ron,

Thanks for sharing about your find. Please tell me where you found information about a fossil pearl having impressions like sand dunes on it. Fossil pearls are such a fascinating category of natural pearls. I'd love to learn more about them.

Have you had a chance for any experts to check it out and look at it?

It's neat that you find so many ancient things. Lucky you. Have fun digging around. God bless.

Also, you live in an interesting place - Rockwall, TX. I've watched a documentary about the rock wall formations there. For anyone interested, here's what Wiki has to say about this place: "The association of Paleo-Indian artifacts with extinct Pleistocene mammal remains in various archeological sites within the Texas Prairie-Savannah Region of eastern North Central Texas, including a site in Collin County, and Clovis points recovered from the Brushy Creek Clovis Site in Hunt County demonstrates that the Rockwall region was occupied by prehistoric Native American cultures at least as far back as 13,500 to 13,000 years ago. More recently, the Rockwall region was occupied by Caddo Indians. Creek Indians moved to the area in the early 19th century.

In 1851, the first Anglo-American settlers moved to the area, and wells were dug. During the digging, they found large underground rock walls that were initially believed to be manmade. Later study of the wall-like features by geologists and archaeologists found them to be jointed, natural sandstone dikes that had intruded Cretaceous marl.

The town was established April 17, 1854 and named after these natural rock walls."
