Description:Belemnites are an extinct group of squid-like cephalopods, related to ammonites. Belemnitella Americana lived during the Cretaceous Period. They had 10 arms but no tentacles. The Chesapeake and Delaware Canal started in 1804 and has been greatly expanded in later years and was collected around 1964. This translucent and lustrous fossil looks like burnt-orange bullet! It is a steinkern, a fossil consisting of a stony mass that entered a hollow natural object (such as a bivalve shell) in the form of mud or sediment, was consolidated, and remained as a cast after dissolution of the mold.
