Hi all,
I had our patio laid & noticed this in one of the stones so I have no idea where this originated from. Love to know what plant this is (I guess it’s a plant)
Thanks in advance.
Neil

There is no picture but I'll wager you have a dendritic mineral staining, caused by mineral solutions percolating through fissures in the rock.... common on stone slabs. Not a fossil but a dead ringer for a fern like plant.

Thanks for your reply Rolo, I don’t understand why the photo didn’t upload, I’ll try to add it to this post.

Hello Neil and welcome to the forum, unfortunately there are no photo(s) showing - please leve it a day or so, make sure you are logged in and then take photos in natural light with a scale in each aspect, a ruler is best .

Nice one Rolo, didn't need a pic. Manganese oxides maybe.

Rolo, you should get a crystal ball and a turban, you'd make a lot of money... 😎

My fault. You made the same post 3 times, when I deleted 2 of them I accidentally deleted the one with a picture.

when a post doesn’t show immediately it’s because it needs approval first
Cheers, Bill
