Parts of North Derbyshire have a lot of limestone that gets dressed and
used in buildings.  It is full of fossils, mostly crinoid stems and some
ammonites (as well as other things).

If the tag gets extended to rural use (as it probably would) there
are lots of dry walls made of limestone around fields.  It would be
unusual to spot a rock in one of those walls that doesn't have at
least one visible fossil.

Unless there is some sort of size/visibility limit, this would be like
creating a tag for individual bricks.
