There were great gonglike ammonite discs, and ravening crocodile skulls, and lithified unknown-brute vertebrae in rock "matrix"; there were some lovely wall-sized red and metallic black polished slabs of hematite /quartz replacing Precambrian algal colonies (one with a vug with a quartz crystal in it); and a 20-foot mosasaur and a matching cryptoamphibic fishlike nightmare; even huge amber hunks enclosing bugs; even bugs, some a foot long, pinned, in that brittle, slightly macabre entomologists' way, in glass-fronted, framed collectors' cases.
