I have a number of questions.Please answer as many as possible according to your expertise.
1.I have seen for sale fossils of ginger and garlic in an antiquity shop.They look like ginger/garlic but is rock hard. The price is about $8 each,which seems to be very cheap. The shopkeeper says they were found near a cave.
(a)how do I determine whether they are really fossils or not?
(b) if they are really fossils, then they should be thousands of years old,right?
(c) how much do you estimate to be the real value if they are really fossils?
(d) Are there any research done on the fosils of garlic and ginger?
(d) we have a scanning electron microscope in our University.For research and academic purposes, what sort of study would you suggest for me to undertake?
Here are some links about fossils:
