"fake ichthyosaur poo" uk coprolites

hi !!i felt i had to write this quick guide to uk coprolites [marine reptile poo] as i was tired watching people bying something that is not genuine,a certain seller[mymagicalart]on okay has been passing these off as copralites when in reallity they are lumps of pyrite witch is a mineral,i agree due to the way it is formed it looks almost identical to a copralites.The reallity is that a lump of pyrite did not gee from a icthyosaurs bum,real coprolites from a marine reptile you can usualy see what they had for dinner, a example of this is fish scales witch are usualy shiny black in appearence,scientists use them to study the diet of theicthyosaurTHIS IS NOT A ICHTHYOSAUR POOP!!! THE ONE AT THE TOP OF THE PAGE IS INDEED A ICHTHY PLOP!!
unfortunatly okay has not eaven attempted to stop this practice of selling gemon lumps of pyrite[real marine reptile coprolites are very hard to find on the jurassic coast]
