Fossil Rocks / Al-Fayeh Desert in Sharjah ....{by Bassam}

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Dedicated to Natalia Papadwniou


Officially called Jebel Maleihah, this large outcrop is more widely known as Fossil Rock, after abundance of marine fossils that can be found on its slopes. This area is rich with the fossils of shells and small sea creatures that were on the ocean floor millions of years ago when water covered much of Arabia. These were created when limestone formed around their shells to make a mould, which then solidified to leave a perfect imprint.
