Was there a fossil in the pillar, or did she become an actual pillar of salt?

Sulphur is a pale yellow substance. Bitumen is a black or brown substance. Pitch is a dark substance. Cypress resin is possibly dark or brown coloured due to its very dark foliage. Salt is white.

The pillar of salt that the woman became is the clue as to what the fire and brimstone was that the LORD rained upon Sodom and Gomorrah.

Sodom was a city which was on the coast of the Salt sea south of Engedi. Engedi was a town on the western shore of the Salt sea. Engedi was originally called Hazazon Tamar because of the Palm groves that were around it. The Amorites lived in Hazezon Tamar when four kings battled five kings. Engedi. See Map 3 Thompsons chain reference bible. The Salt sea was the Sea of Arabah. The Salt Sea is the Dead Sea. Engedi was in Judah. Judah was a hilly country. Luke 1:39 Engedi was in a hilly country. The angels told Lot not to stay in the plain but to escape to the mountain. Genesis 19:17.. Sodom, and Gomorrah were in mountainous country. 7 And they returned, and came to Enmishpat, which is Kadesh, and smote all the country of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites, that dwelt in Hazezontamar.
8 And there went out the king of Sodom, and the king of Gomorrah, and the king of Admah, and the king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela (the same is Zoar;) and they joined battle with them in the vale of Siddim;
9 With Chedorlaomer the king of Elam, and with Tidal king of nations, and Amraphel king of Shinar, and Arioch king of Ellasar; four kings with five.
10 And the vale of Siddim was full of slimepits; and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled, and fell there; and they that remained fled to the mountain. Gen 14:7-10

Siddim: The region on the shores of the salt sea wherein were Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim. The valley of Siddim was south west of the Salt sea.

Admah, was a town which was in the vale of Siddim. Admah was destroyed with Zeboim, Sodom, and also Gomorrah B.C. 1897 or 1898.

Zeboim was one of five cities which were situated in the valley of Siddim. The woman was burned..The woman was burned with a substance that was fiery, flaming, burning, hot, and which fell down upon her. The woman became a monument of an easily dissolved or pulverized powdery salt (substance). The woman did not become a pillar of white salt. The woman obviously became a pillar of a pale yellow, or dark coloured substance. The pale yellow or dark coloured substance that the woman became was an easily dissolved or pulverized powdery substance.

If Sodom and Gomorrah were very near a volcanic region, and a volcano erupted upon Sodom and Gomorrah, then the woman was covered with fiery, flaming, burning, hot, lava, which set into a dark coloured monument of stone.
