DVPS St Clair trip
This was my first trip with the Delaware Valley Paleontological Society and I had a great time. The turnout was good ,the fossil hunting great and the people and conversation even better.
Many people consider the fern fossils found here to be some of the finest in the world. This is one of the few places where one can find detailed white ferns on a jet black slate. The white (Pyrophyllite) is believed to be the result of a later replacement of the pyrite.
