1.35" Pyrite Replaced Brachiopod (Stropheodonta) Fossil - Ohio

This is a brachiopod fossil of the species Stropheodonta demissa that has been replaced by iron pyrite. It comes from the Devonian-aged Silica Shale near Sylvania, Ohio. The quarries where these brachiopods used to be found are now closed to collectors so they are much harder to acquire.

You can really feel the heft of the iron pyrite in this specimen when you hold it in your hand.
