Early bird gets the barb

Man it felt good to get out this morning for some collecting at my favorite beach.  I knew there probably wouldn't be much beach to search since I was going close to high tide, but I didn't care.  I ended up doing some sifting as usual and found a nice little gem.  Below is the pic of a fairly small stingray barb.  It's  only 1.5" long, but it has nice translucent red color.  It's 99% complete which is really rare for stingray barbs.  I only have a few that are complete like this one, and probably a thousand broken ones.  I found less than 10 shark teeth in three hours; two worn hemi's, a couple tigers, and a few carcharhinus teeth.

and nice little stinger.... better to find that in your screen than through the bottom of your boot..... sure you didn't "file down" that find from a GMR belemnite... the color looks pretty suspect.... Content Quality : 10 of 10
