  1. Ok ok I found a couple more pictures. So it won't be as short as I first thought! Living here on the west coast, out east is the same area most of you would call way out west, S.dakota/Nebraska. Many, many, years ago, in fact back when I was on a school break, I traveled way out east as far as Omaha on a fossil collecting excursion. On the way there, one of the side trips was to a ranch in the oligocene badlands. Among other great pieces we found, here are a few pics of some of our finds from that trip. Hyracodon
  2. Lets see what you consider jewelry grade fossils
  3. Im not sure if anyone still recalls, but Last summer I posted this picture, in hopes someone could guess its true identity. Well it is now prepared to reveal its true identity I will post the revealed specimen in the reply.
  4. I apologise, but I posted this earlier today, and realized it would be better as its own thread THROPHONS are an interesting gastropod from the miocene Astoria formation in Oregon, and quite rare with good preservation. I would invite others to show us their interesting fossil gastropods from around the world.
  5. Went for a fossil hike yesterday
  6. I think ill keep this one "Pulalius"
  7. Well looks like its time for a new post. please keep in mind MOST, of my collecting adventures were before the "digital" age, so a lot of my pics are reprints from photographs. Dadgumit !!! if i only knew----.HOWEVER, most of these fossils ARE in my collection. The pieces I'm showing in this thread are very recent pics. The vast majority of this Cambrian material(lathem shale) i collected was also given to the museum before my move north these are pics of Olenellus clarki. The larger single trilo even has its opisthothorax preserved, a very rare occurrence Part A b
  8. PRK


    I was talking with a friend on the phone a couple months ago and mentioned that I liked serrated shark teeth. About a week later I received this sweet GW tooth in the mail, completely out of the blue, as a Christmas gift. I collected The large hastalis is from STH
  9. Firstly-thank you John This PDF is an explanation of what I hope will become solidly embedded in 21st century building codes. Including archaeology sites. ESP 3rd page As you probably know by now, I am very concerned with the loss of these very fragile resourses, and would collect fossils from them almost every weekend. My concern with salvaging fossils from the foundation pads of buildings, landed me the first "official" job, and proverbial guinea pig, monitoring these construction sites for museums in the country. I found many varieties of fossils on site almost every day, all went t
  10. These comparative specimens are lower cambrian inarticulate brachiopods from the lathem shale. I collected them in the classic locality at the marble mountains in the Mohave desert, over 40years ago. They too are a variety of PATERINA
  11. This is what one looks like, as found !!
  12. We decided to settle in the PNW, so after we packed up everything we could cram into our PU and cargo trailer, we headed north. It took us 5 days just to get from SoCal to Salem oregon, where we lived for 2 years. All because, when we acquired new tires for the trip, they forgot to tighten the lug nuts(only finger tight) and we didnt notice for a few hundred miles. When we finally pulled over 3 of the lug bolts were sheared off and needed to be replaced, and of course it was the weekend. Luckily it was only one wheel. The look of our vehicle and trailer reminded me of the beverly hillbillies.
  13. I see a lot of posts of eocene fresh water, green river fish from Wyoming so. I thought I'd post some of my Miocene marine, deep sea fishes, from California Argyropelicus ( eastern pacific hatchetfish), and baby deep water flatfish This is all the pics i can get in one post now.
  14. This Miocene wood was preserved in ash from a nearby volcanic eruption
  15. I know crabs are fairly prevalent in the oligocene Lincoln ck. fm. Does anyone collect any associated fossils?
  16. Last weekend I encouraged a split in an Oligocene rock I had stored up in the attic, to expose this beaut. It had been stored up there for 35 years and I had no idea it was inside that rock. I was/am very exited
  17. Back, many many years ago, I made my first trade, a bunch of sh th from France. All were relatively average except this one. The guy, from france said it was uncommon, possibly eocene, and It's the only one from that trade i have left. Anyone have any comments?
  18. With all the mazon posts lately, it made me look closer at my material. What, if anything, are these little nodes?
  19. Being a total fossil nut, and having excellent locality info, my new bride and I took a wonderful 7000mile expedition around the entire western half of the US, to see where we might want to settle. We visited a half dozen world class fossil sites. Along the way to Omaha and the badlands i took another sidetrip to Florissant co., this was before all the rules and regulations were in place. And ever since have had a GREAT affinity for fossil insects. Luckily she also loved fossils, and although we never returned to florissant, some years later we located another excellent oligocene fossi
  20. When they first discovered this area they wanted only jewelry grade fire opal, tossing out the lovely Miocene wood fire opal mix as what youall call shamers. Now the wood with the combination opal is the priority material
  21. I can't find my last posting on this subject. I need it for chat. so Ill try again. all material is replaced with agate and jasper, and cut and polished by me
  22. Maybe we should talk over some finds at the STH locale. Shall we? DESMOSTYLUS tooth. Interesting story---I used to live within a couple hours of STH. so there was a point when I was in school during the week, of courseI had weekends off, so I would drive up to STH and dig there every weekend, for many months in a row. On this particular weekend i was happy to find half of a rare desmostylus tooth(about five columns). On one of my return trips, a couple months later,I was digging a good 60ft away and found another smaller partial of a desmo tooth(a couple columns). Upon my return home to pre
  23. Ive been collecting fossils for 45 years and still have my FIRST fossil treasures, nothing great but--- 1st pic: This is Before I even knew what a fossil looked like (seems like back in the Pleistocene). I used to peruse/play in the tidepools near my home. when i was very young 4th grade. i had heard there were "fossils" found now and then in the same area, so I always kept my eyes pealed for fossils. on this particular outing i finally found a great fossil (so i thought). i was soooo happy and showed it off regularley. even took it to show and tell at school. In the years since ive con
  24. While in Tucson back in the '70s, I happened by a dealer wrapping a collection of split mazon nodules he had sold for a goodly sum. I didn't/dont collect mazon fossils, so all I could make of them were "blobs". I couldnt believe it. I had never seen "blobs" sell for so much! Just goes to show ya, one mans BLOB is another mans treasure. A couple years later, while i was perusing in another building, an older gentleman was unwrapping mazon material he had collected all his life. The nice fellow had fallen on hard times and needed to liquidate. having heard the tucson reputation, he pac
