  coral fossil
by travelife

The next stop was at a place where we found a large collection of fossil. Cannot say exactly when (perhaps thousands / millions)this part of the desert was under the sea and still there are pieces of oyester shell around. The structure I am standing under is perhaps a part of coral reef. I made a mistake or just did not remember to bring a piece of this pre-historic fossils. I guess you should break a piece and carry a smaller piece with you as a souvenir. Didn feel it was a protected / scarce resource.
