Exploratour 03: Souvenirs from the sea


Actually, you are walking over corpses here. Much of the limestone below them consists of the remains of tiny shells of chamberlings or formaminifera, ammonites, belemnites, mussels, algae, etc. They lived about 200 million years ago in a shallow Bahamas-like sea.

Even the clearly recognizable white veins of quartz were once part of a living being. The quartz was formed from the skeletal needles of sponges that colonized the tropical sea.
