Fossils are the preserved remains of plants and animals whose bodies were buried in sediments, such as sand and mud, under ancient seas, lakes and rivers. Fossils also include any preserved trace of life that is typically more than 10 000 years old.

Geodes on display

Geodes are spherical or egg-shaped rocks that contain hollow cavities lined with crystals. The name geode comes from the Greek word Geoides, which means “earthlike”.
