Hard shell on the sea floor gradually covered by sandy sediments (2). And sink, and the sand has turned into rock that rose to the surface as a result of tectonic movements (3). Erosion of the breed has led to the emergence of fossilized shells on the surface (4).

However, the solid fabric – shells, bones, teeth, horns and claws of animals or the bark, cones and seeds of plants sometimes persist.
