Pseudofossils are inorganic objects, markings, or impressions that might be mistaken for fossils. Pseudofossils may be misleading, as some types of mineral deposits can mimic lifeforms by forming what appear to be highly detailed or organized structures. One common example is when manganese oxides crystallize with a characteristic treelike or dendritic pattern along a rock fracture. The formation of frost dendrites on a window is another common example of this crystal growth. Concretions are sometimes thought to be fossils, and occasionally one contains a fossil, but are generally not fossils themselves. Chert or flint nodules in limestone can often take forms that resemble fossils.
knocked the kickstarter ring stock out today - next measuring, forming, soldering, cleanup
these are made by running bronze wire through a the rolling mill about 6 times to flatten it, then through a patterned roll in the mill
metal becomes stiff as you work with it, or “work hardened”. so every few passes through the mill I have to anneal the wire - heating with a torch to a dull red, then quenching in water. then they are soft and pliable again
