I found these two rocks in a river close to where I live. I was wondering...

Do these two rocks look like they are full of broken fossils to any of you? I am thinking they are fragments of trilobites maybe. When I look at them under a magnifying glass all of those pieces that look like fossils to me, all look like quartz mineral or something. I was thinking of breaking one of them open to see what's in side.

Any ideas or suggestions?

From a glance they look like they could be shells of some sort or fossils. I personally would love to see one cut open or even maybe try to scrape away the rock around one to get a piece out. Either way it definetly looks like a couple of interesting stones.

Yeah, looks like a mess of shell fossils to me too. I thought maybe you had a bit of crinoid in the one, but looking closer I think it’s some shells that just happened to line up.

Do you think I should open one up as well? I was thinking of doing the one in photo 4. What would be your recommendation?

That's a nice fossil specimen. Did that come from Morocco? Thanks for posting.
