FOSSIL SCALLOP (BIVALVE)
PRESERVED IN FLINT


80 million years old (Upper Chalk)

Spondylus
 
During the late Cretaceous period Britain was submerged beneath a tropical sea.  On this sea floor was laid down white, limy mud, which became the familiar soft limestone we know as Chalk.  Creatures that lived on this sea floor are often preserved as fossils in the Chalk, usually as the hard form of silica known as flint. 


The fossil bivalve Spondylus is usually found with both valves (shells) intact but it is not common to find them preserved in flint.
