  6. ID Waco Ammonites

    Can anyone help with the identification of these Ammonites? They were found in the Waco research pit. They are both close to 1/2 inch in size.
  7. Just wondered what you guys/gals have out there ? This Hildoceras I found sticking out of the beach, covered in matrix, chipped it off to reveal an ok side but no detailed centre, decided to attempt the other side, sadly it cracked in half but... I did manage to expose the other side and glue it so is now fully exposed, cheers.
  8. Does anybody know how I could go about obtaining some ammonites from Madagascar which haven't been polished? The polished ones are extremely common and very cheap, but very rarely do I see unpolished ones. I guess they are polished before they ever go on sale - but does anybody know where I might obtain some which are unpolished? Oh, and without the ends being ground flat would also be a bonus! Thanks.
  9. While the misses and I were at the Quartzite show we would go out to breakfast in the morning and then go look around. Lots to see. Ive been looking for a certain piece of coral and a certain ammonite since last year. I couldn't find the coral, but I did find where it was at. I have to make a phone call before I go next year and hope this guy will let some go? Anyways, I did buy some ammonites. A fairly large Perisphinctes from Madagascar and some other smaller ammos and that's all I bought. Im really happy for the large Perisphinctis, 15 inches, but its not the best prep job, but Ive been looking for one of these larger ones for some time now. I wont say, but I got it for a song!!! RB
  10. I'need to remove some internal moulds/casts of small Ammonites and Gastropods for identification purposes. The Fossils consist of the same material as the matrix, namely Liassic mud/limestones of lower Jurassic age; they're coated with a brown pyritical stain/shell remains. Any advice would be most welcome. I have managed to remove one or two but with not very satisfactory results. Thanks Trog
  11. Hi! I'm a novice collector of rocks, crystals and ammonites. There is just something about the shape, textures or patterns of ammonites that I love. I can't quite explain it. I know my collection is likely laughable as a lot of them came from eBay and are polished or worked on. They just looked appealing to me. I try to do research or ask questions before I buy anything. I wanted to show the ammonites I've collected over the years. Some of them came from the local rock shop and some came from all over. I vaguely have an idea what some are but not sure completely please dont laugh lol
  12. I want to show you three "old" finds from the lower Jurassic in Holzmaden/Dormettingen. They are all big ammonites and because of that not that common there ... I used this three ammonites too practice my new stone cutting machine and it works I am very happy with it and its a new chance for me to solve my "space problem" ... Here is it: https://www.amazon.de/Zipper-Fliesenschneider-ZI-FS115/dp/B00BP7OXLO And i dont want to withheld the ammonites ... 1) Harpoceras falcifer with a maximal length of 28 cm: 2) Also Harpoceras (?) with a max. length of 25 cm. This exemplar need more prep ... And the last one a bit smaller with a diameter of 20 cm but well preserved: I am sorry for the bad photos especially the first looks very nice in real and the photo looks bad ... But thanks for viewing !

  15. Opalized Ammontes

    Hi all, Recently saw an opalized ammonite out at a rock and fossil shop in Colorado. It was really quite beautiful but as I'm pretty much an amateur when it comes to identifying fossils, I have concerns about its authenticity. I'm wondering if anyone can give tips on how to spot fakes. thank you!

  17. A visit in Mistelgau

    Last week i visit for two hours the quarry Mistelgau (clay pit) near Bayreuth. Its not allowed to dig for the "Belemnitenschlachtfelder" (belemnite battle fields), so i concentrated to find some cool ammonites .... But first some pictures in and outside the quarry: Doesnt look spectacular, but its a great place The location where i collected is not on the photo. I collected on a slope on the right of the quarry. You can find many very small ammonites (smaller than 1 cm). For example on this random photo you can see many of them ... But this looks better ... A 4 cm big Pleydellia (?) : And now i want to show some detailed finds: A nice 3.4 cm long unknown ammonite (perhaps also Pleydellia ?) Another ammonite with a length of 2.8 cm ... Looks different, i think it could be Cotteswoldia (?):
  18. The place I used to hunt for ammonites has been renovated, and now the creek is destroyed. I am looking for good places to find ammonites near Austin, Texas. If anyone knows any good places, please tell me the name and where it is.
  19. Just back from my holiday in Scarborough and I'd like to know what these are please. Many thanks.
  20. Ft Worth area fossils

    Hi, I will be in Ft worth for a week & can fossil hunt & collect on the weekend 10/8 & 10/9. I've never found an echinoid, trilobite or a ammonite & would like to collect whatever I can . My current plan is to try Jacksboro, Ladonia, & Mineral Wells. I figure lake Texoma is a no go without a boat. I have Matthews' guide & understand any construction site with limestone is a possibility after seeking permission. I'm open to suggestions & would appreciate any other recommendations. thanks
  21. The second part of my little trip through some quarries in Bavaria. Here you can see the first part: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/68791-fossils-from-bavaria-part-1/ After my visit in Mistelgau i was in a quarry near Buttenheim. Too bad that it was still rainy so i couldnt search longer than 2 hours (Yes i dont have that much stamina ). I was about 4 times in Buttenheim before (finds), but every time i admire the color of them ... This time i also found some cool ammonites ... The better examples: Most of them arent good preserved and they are often very instable. I think most (nearly all) are Pleuroceras sp. Some detailed photos: The first one is very nice although its broken. The specimen is 4 cm long and well preserved: This one is a bit damaged, but 7 cm long ...
  22. Last weekend i was two days in Bavaria and collect in 4 quarries. Two quarries, which i never visit before and two, which werent new for me ... I decide to post the finds of each quarry in a single topic that i dont have time pressure The first day i was in the quarry Mistelgau (clay pit) near Bayreuth. I am sry that i dont have pictures of the quarry but it was rainy, so i couldnt take pictures there .... I found many small ammonites (around 1-6 cm): I am not sure with ID (i appreciate any help!) .... Some detailed pictures of the nice ones: Maybe Pleydellia (?) Size: 2.6 cm Nice structure on this one ("Lobenlinien") Size: 2.5 cm A bigger one with 4 cm: (Cotteswoldia ??) And a very small one (1.2 cm) ... Maybe Ccallyphylloceras ??
  23. Fossil Preparation/Cleaning

    Hi all fossil enthusiasts, I'm very new to the fossil hunting scene-live in the UK and recently went on my first hunt at Charmouth beach on our south coast (Jurassic coast)...loved it so much I plan to go regularly. Having done 2 hunts, I'm wanting to make sure I do right by the fossils I find, and to present them in all their glory. Charmouth is overflowing with Belamnites and also I have found quite a few ammonites already (mostly looking barely recognisable preserved in iron pyrite). For the belamnites,they are already pretty good but wondering if there is anything I should spray or soak them in, now they're fully exposed to air and dry. For the pyratised ammonites, can anything be done to remove the pyrite that is not ammonite (or are they all one entity now?). I also have a piece that appears to b a slatey rock with ammonite imprints...bit worried it could break easily...any advice on how to treat it (see photo). I would also also like help identifying one (photo attached of round fossil on its own)...I thought when I first found it that it was an ammonite,but it doesn't have rings wrapping around it. Could it b something else (or just a central bit of an ammonite with the outer rings lost?). N.b. To date, I have soaked them all in tap water and used a toothbrush to clean mud off...hope that is ok?! If u made it reading this far,thanks so much for your time-any help would be greatly appreciated! K V
  24. We three P.'s

    On Tuesday, August 30th, I had the pleasure of collecting with fellow members @Pilobolus and @Jeffrey P out in my beloved Rio Puerco Valley. I present a photo collage, from my point of view, of that great adventure with both old and new friends. Enjoy.
