  1. So, some of you may have heard of the small outback opal mining town of White Cliffs, New South Wales Australia. For many who read this post, I suspect that you have never even heard of it, or even know that it produces opal fossils. White Cliffs is a 12 hour drive from Sydney, traveling north west (towards Broken Hill), you travel over the Blue Mountains, through the farms of the central-west, the gold and copper town of Cobar and then hitting the historical town of Wilcannia and then traveling north to White Cliffs. White Cliffs claim to fame is an opalised replacemen
  2. Hey there! I've been wanting to go to the Hutton Sandstone Formation, Walloon Coal Measures to search for Jurassic aged fossils, specifically in search for dinosaurs such as Rhoetosaurus. The only problem is I can't seem to find anything online on how to get there, and where exactly the formation is. Can I get some help?

    What on earth is this?

    I found this strange looking rock along the cliffs of Maslin Beach, South Australia. The beach is a fossil hotspot for shells but this doesn't look like a shell to me... Any idea what these strange lines are?

    Some echinoids :)

    Hi Guys, I don’t know if we have any echinoid experts on the forum but I figured I’d try, I’ll start with this piece this is miocene from the Murray river, australia, there is a lovenia woodi on there but I’m not sure what species the regular echinoid is, thanks for your help
  5. Hi guys! Found this at Mona Vale (Sydney, Australia), early triassic, Narrabeen group. Fossil ID please.
  6. Hi All, I purchased this Australian Dicrodium recently. The previous owner had used some sort of press stick / tack to attach the label. When the fossil arrived, the label was loose in the packaging. But there was some residue on the fossil itself. I tried to very gently remove some of this, but it took up some of the underlying fossil as it came away. What is the best way of removing it, without damaging the underlying fossil? Anyone with experience with this? Thanks

    Fossil or not?

    IMG_1404.MOV Hi all. I’m very new here and hoping to get a verdict on a possible find. The “thing” was found on the ground surface with few similar pieces that fit together like a jigsaw puzzle in a field near Boulia (Australia). It definitely sticks to the tongue, but is it a fossil or some sort of a septarian nodule? Thanks in advance for any info. IMG_1490.MOV

    Possible Horsetail Fossil?

    Recently I found this plant fossil at the Late Triassic aged Blackstone Fm, Queensland, Australia. I think it’s a horsetail but I’m not certain.

    Personal Paleo Reconstructions

    Hey, everyone! These are some of my paleo reconstructions I've done recently, and I thought I may as well share them here. Btw if you want to use them, the top to are both under CC BY-SA 4.0, so theres that. Enjoy! Firstly here we have a skeletal reconstruction of Eomurruna yurrgensis, a small procolophonid from the Early Triassic, Arcadia Formation of Queensland, Australia

    Adam's Cambrian

    A rangeomorph holdfast trace fossil from the Ediacara formation, Rawnsley quartzite of the Flinders Range, South Australia. This specimen is Medusina mawsoni, so called because it was until recently thought to be a jellyfish, but is now believed to be the attachment point of a fractal rangeomorph as Charniodiscus is the point of anchorage for Charnia sp. This one may have been the holdfast point for some species of Rangea. The diameter of the outer circle is 1.5 cm and the fossil is estimated to be 555 million years old.

    Australia's Largest Trilobite

    Thought I'd post this interesting new paper which describes Australia's largest species of trilobite so far documented. Described are 16 species of trilobite, including two new genera and five new species, all from the Amadeus Basin in the Northern Territory. One is even named in honour of my father and I, Iridis schoonorum LINK
  12. Paleontologists have classified a a new species of Titanosaur, Australotitan cooperensis, found in 2007 in South-West Queensland. It is the largest dinosaur ever discovered in Australia. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-australia-57394830 https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/07/world/australia/new-dinosaur-species.html

    Opal filled bone (?)

    Here’s a different kind of possible opal fossil from Australia. This was found in Winton, not lightning ridge. See the next post for the story behind it. I hope the opal fossil collectors and experts on here will weigh in with their opinions.

    Stromatolites

    Two highly polished, end cut Stromatolite agate achats from the Mátra mountains, Gyöngyöstarján, Hungary from the Miocene, 20 million years ago that I recently purchased. These are the first Stromatolite fossils that I’ve added to my fossil collection. I’m posting a few pictures to show the incredible colors in these pieces. End Cut (1) ( 543grams 103mm by 102mm by 35mm) End Cut 2 (166grams 75mm by 45mm by 45mm)

    Fossil or strange rock?

    Hi All, I found this strange looking rock in a creek bed in central Queensland. I've never seen anything like it before. Maybe fossilized coral of some type? There are opal fields and dinosaur fossils in the area. Sorry about the blurred photos, my phone is just about stuffed. Thanks
  17. 2 days ago I found a beautiful jet black fossilised great white shark tooth almost 4cm long on a Sunshine Coast beach. I think it may be a lucky find as we’ve combed the beach for a few days now at low tide and nothing more to be found. I haven’t been able to find anything about finds in this area either. Not sure if anyone knows if it is a rare thing here?

    Opalised Dino Tooth? Pic Heavy

    Hello everyone I have recently obtained an opal parcel of rough to cut into gems from the opal fields at lightning ridge Australia, however right before I was about to grind this one rough opal something stood out. I remembered walking in the natural history museum in Sidney Australia and noticed the opalized teeth of varies animals/dinos etc. This one was just like one I had seen many years ago. I cleaned it only; no polish just water and a soft paintbrush as not to alter it. From my research, I found a possible match a Hypsilophodon it lived in the area where lightning ridge opals are fo

    Unknown Fossil Please Help Identify

    Hi I have a fossil I found while exploring an area near Dubbo NSW australia. I taught it was just petrified wood until I cleaned it and notice on one end has colour and looks like it could have fish fins on the side. The length is 300mm and width is at its widest point 180mm. It was just sitting on side of a dirt track and also has another part to it which I will pick up next time I'm out that way again. Any help in identifying what I have here would be much appreciated as I wouldn't have a clue other than what I think it is. Thanks

    Agathis jurassica White, 1981

    One of the common coniferous plant fossils found at the Talbragar site is Agathis jurassica. The genus Agathis is extant, representing a small group of some 21 species mainly distributed in Australasia, belonging to the same family (Araucariaceae) as Wollemia. Together with a fishtail. Key references: White. M.E., 1981a. Fish beds reveal lush fossil forest. Australian Natural History 20 (7), 227-230. White. M.E., 1981b.

    Mineral or Fossil?

    Hi all. Yesterday, I went on my first fossil hunt in about fourteen years. Went back to one of my old haunts, Jan Juc beach on the south coast of Victoria, Australia (Oligocene deposit - mostly mud and sandstone). I was expecting to find the usual - sea urchins, small crabs, coral, sponges etc. Instead I found a big, dark thing. A thing is all I can describe it as - buried in sandstone with the eroded top showing, I initially thought it could be a toe, or maybe some petrified wood. Once I moved the boulder to my garden and attacked it with a small hammer, what popped out was a little puzzlin
  25. Hello, I might be going on a week long trip to Lismore, NSW soon. Are there any fossil sites/places to look within an hour (any direction) from Lismore?
