Annelid traces in sandstone

Creeping marks of Annelids or ringed worms have been found from the sandstone of Lauhanvuori. These worms lived at the ancient seashore over 600 million years ago. The trace fossils tell about the time when life was slowly spreanding from sea to dry land. 

The video features a 3D-scanned stone sample from the collections of the Geological Survey of Finland. Traces of Annelid crawling can be seen on the surface of the stone. They meander on the surface of petrified ancient beach sand. Two pieces of fossil-bearing stones have been found in Lauhanvuori. They are in the collections of the Geological Survey of Finland in Espoo.
