    Any idea?

    We have dug up this when repiling our house. Not sure what it is?
  2. I know I'm not the only one that doesn't live near good fossil deposits, which means that i'm not the only one that has to buy or trade fossils from time to time to build the collection. I thought it would be fun to have an ongoing thread to share our latest great score that we didn't personally find in nature, a thread to share your latest fossil purchase or trade. Let's see what you found at the local fossil show, online or anywhere else other than in the ground.

    Fantastic Fern Fossil In Flint

    An acquaintance found this on a ranch outside of Roscoe, TX. I presume it's some sort of fern. Any chance we could narrow it down further? It's a lovely specimen with a special remembrance for the collector. Appreciate any help you can offer.

    Myrtle Beach find - wood? tusk?

    Found on Myrtle Beach Jan 18, 2022. Feels and looks like fossilized wood. No "marrow" type stipling so not bone. Looking from the round cut-off end, darker black on the outside, lighter color on the inside. That coloring threw me. Thought it was bone but now that strange color just wanted me to double check this wasn't some kind of animal tusk or horn. Thanks! Paula
  5. I found this five foot under water in Mt Fork River in Oklahoma... approx mile from where the dinosaur skeleton on display in red river museum was found. It's extremely heavy much heavier than petrified wood and when I carried it to museum she said it glowed pink, blue, and green florescence and that it needed to be checked out. She also said it has silver pyrite bursts in some of the round indentations and she hadn't seen anything like it. It's not magnetic at all and has some type of vein thru the center of it's entire length. It has a very unique pattern and I can't find anything exactly li

    Fossil insect in amber.

    Hi everyone, I haven’t been on in a while, how is everyone? I am posting today in hopes of getting an ID. Backstory, a while ago, I was able to purchase a piece of “polished amber with insect,” on online. When it got here, I was skeptical about whether it was real amber or not. I did a LOT of testing. It passed the float test, the UV test, and I was able to calculate its specific gravity successfully. I am pretty sure it’s real amber. Today, I took the amber out and looked at the insect under my microscope. At 40x magnification I saw so much TINY
  7. Found washed up on Myrtle Beach, Jan 18, 2022. The tip of this looks to have enamel on it. Back is broken off, so might have been more rounded in the back; hard to tell. Thank you! Paula
  8. Found on Myrtle Beach, Jan 18, 2022. Never saw this one before. Bottom is concave with a small protruding tip at the top (third picture) Top is rounded, coming to a peak in the middle. The top two pictures make this look almost like a steinkern but it isn't, as you can see from third image. Thank you!
  9. In my collection (about 30 fossils in total, but it's always expanding!) there is only one fossil of terrestrial reptile (but I'm saving some money to get another one soon!) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Species: Mycterosaurus longiceps Size: 1 cm x 5 mm Age: 280-275 mya (Lower Permian, Kungurian) Origin: USA, Oklahoma --> Dolese Brothers Quarry --> Richard's Spur About this fossil: one of the smallest ones in my collection, it is a partially complete caudal vertebra of Mycterosaurus longiceps. It is missing only a small pi

    New at this. Need help with ID.

    Found in Brevard County FL. Very new to this. Don't exactly understand how to do this proper. Any insight appreciated. Thanks.
  11. Hey everyone, I need your help! I recently bought a mystery box with some ambers and i got this one with...something inside. So I took my microscope and took some photos (don't remember the magnification but i think 80-100x) and...still didn't know what it could be! Help please? Age of the amber: 49 mya (Middle Eocene) Origin: Lithuania (sorry for eventual bad photos, my microscope isn't that good)
  12. This is one of my favourite fossils of my collection. Hope you like it too! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Species: Cleoniceras sp. Size: 6,6 cm x 5,3 cm x 1,9 cm Age: 145,5 mya (Lower Cretaceous) Origin: Tulear, Madagascar About the fossil: the beautiful red color of the shell and the more "white" one near the center of the specimen are a product of opalization (more specifically, the type of opal that formed in this specimen is red opal). Edit: It's not opal, it's aragonite.
  13. Can someone help identify the tooth in the right? This is the only picture I have. It's my friends find. Thanks guys!
  14. Hi, so my grandpa gave me this and we both have absolutely no idea what it is. He does not remember where he got it from, so I’m sorry about that. The fossil itself it very smooth but has slightly raised ridges that go along it vertically. The hole does not go through it, but about 1/3 of the way down. We started to wonder if it is perhaps a bone fragment that just got fossilized but that’s why I’m here. Hopefully the pictures I took can help. It’s okay if no one knows, just wanted a general idea. Thanks in advance

    Anyone know what this is?

    Hi! I just found this fossil (it’s a fossil right?) in Northwest Arkansas, but haven’t been able to ID it. Anyone know what it is? It’s about two and half inches wide. Thanks!

    Baryonyx vertebra from UK?

    Hey guys, Recently received this vertebra from Brightstone bay, Isle of Wight, UK. Could it be baryonyx? What else could it be if it’s not? Size is 7,5cm long. Thanks for the help.

    Fossil Shark Tooth

    Can you guys help me identify this tooth. I originally thought it was a Meg, but someone I showed it to thought it might be something else because of its slight curve. Any ideas? Thanks!
  18. Hello gang! With a repaired ticker, a solid bill of health and a finally completed off road capable vehicle; I am starting the planning for my annual July “super excursion”. As I purchase supplies and provisions I am planning to add various PaleoBond products to the mix. I’m looking for anecdotal information on the stability and shelf life of these products beyond what is in the documentation, this will help me determine what sizes/volumes I will buy. Discussion?

    Indian artifact or fossilized bone

    Looks like bone ...I don't have a clue found My Fork River in OK.

    ID fossil - help needed! Ireland

    Hi I came across this fossil while digging a footing trench. Was about 1200mm below the ground. At the bottom of the trench in the attached image. In grey clay. In one of the many cobbles in this layer. it’s about 65mm [ 2-1/2” ] wide. Darcystown in North County Dublin in Ireland, about a mile from the east coast at about 350ft above sea level.
  22. Central Coast Ranch

    I just found this bone. Help ID

    I just dug this out of rain storm runoff, we live 30 miles inland from Cambria Ca. I was told we live in an area of whale fossils but am unsure. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

    Fossilized tooth. Peace River, Florida

    I found this tooth in the Peace River, Florida. I haven't been able to identify it. Any ideas? Thanks!
  24. I need help identifying this jaw bone with teeth. I only have the one picture but the molars are pretty distinctive and hopefully are enough. This was found in the Peace River, Florida. Thanks for any help!
