Jebel Hafit fossils

At the foot of Jebel Hafit, near where the road from the cement works passes through a man-made gorge, numerous fossils of Nummulites, almost the size of a bottle-top, can be found. With them, lying loose on the scree slopes, are fragments of branching corals, oysters and gastropods, rare sea urchins and, even rarer, remains of barnacles and crab claws. At the northern part of the jebel north towards Al Ain, south of the Khalid bin Sultan road, eroded flanks of the anticline are exposed in the wadi. Here very hard, massive limestones are preserved with their beds in a near vertical position. Numerous coral "heads" are found here, some quite large about 60 centimetres in diameter.
