Abstract

There being, so far as I can ascertain, no description or
notes in the Papers and Proceedings of the Royal Society of
Tasmania on replacement fossils of wood by iron pyrites, it
seems to me not out of place to record some observations on
an interesting specimen of this nature from the locality of
Cox's Bight, and kindly placed at my disposal by Mr. Alex.
Morton.
This specimen was discovered in the tin deposits at Cox's
Bight.
In appearance it is rather deceptive, and at first sight its
upper half seems like graphite, being of a dull greyish-black colour. Includes watercolour drawings.
