    Odd shapes in shale

    Few weeks ago started breaking open some pieces of shale. I've found lots of trilobite fragments that I'll post later, but what's intriguing me is these small bits of things that I find quite a lot. I can't find anything on what they might be and my closest guess is perhaps some bits of crinoids? Does anyone have more experience than me with such things?

    Is This a Cambrian Monoplacophoran?

    Hi I came across this while hunting for trilobites at a commercial Cambrian shale quarry in Utah near Delta and was wondering if it was a monoplacophoran or something else or just an odd rock formation. The shape is concave and about 2 inches in diameter. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you!

    Calyx?

    Unfortunately I don’t have any provenance for this rock. I bought it years ago screwed to a piece of driftwood for my fish tank. When the driftwood had withered away to a twig, I was throwing it away, but noticed the fossil traces on the rock and kept it. Came across it a few weeks ago, and started messing with it. The fish store was local, and I would assume that this was created by a somewhat local person (in east TN), but I don’t know. The top of the “calyx” is translucent from the underside. Not the softest limestone I’ve found…I can see signs of bryozoans and brachiopods, but it’s hard t

    Humber River fossil

    Can anyone I'd this fossil. I found it in the west Humber River Toronto near Islington.

    Insect fossil?

    Hello My first post, Nice to meet you all, in advance. I am an amateur geology enthusiast/fossil hunter. Purely as a hobby and for my personal enjoyment. I found this stone in a very unusual place, stuck in the tire of a piece of construction equipment in The Netherlands close to Rotterdam. Pure random chance. Not where I would normally hunt. Unfortunately, this piece of mobile equipement could be used all over the country so it is impossible to say exactly what its origins are. It looks to me, to be a piece of shale or oil shale that has spent a considerable amount of
  6. Being a Colorado native, I have taken multiple trips to the public-access Florissant Fossil Quarry located near Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument in Florissant, Teller County, Colorado. This quarry provides fossil collectors fantastic access to the shale layers of the Florissant Formation, a late Eocene (Priabonian, ~34 million years old give or take) lagerstatte known for its diverse fauna of fossil insects, in addition to plants, gastropods, and very rarely vertebrates. Most fossils occur in very thinly laminated ashy grey shales. Other lithologies present include well-sorted tan cour
  7. I live in southern Ontario County, New York State. I found this in my woods and am wondering if it could be a sea grass trace fossil.
  8. I bought a box of shale from U-dig for my family to get some trilobites. This the 40lb box. Posting pictures for others to know how it comes. The shale is carefully packaged in a large flat rate box. The shale on the top shows trilobite fossils as soon as paper is uncovered. I am happy with the shipment. Definitely should be enough triolobites for the whole family.

    Found on a mountain top

    Found on a mountain top in the rockies, any idea what it could be? I was wondering if it could be Cambrian?
  10. WOW, what a day! Today I had the pleasure of finally meeting @Jared C after over a year of reading his trip reports and admiring all of the incredible finds he's made exploring the Cretaceous formations of Central Texas. We have a lot in common: both of us are pursuing a career in paleontology, are both (almost) the same age, and are both attending universities in-state that are only an hour and a half away from each other. Needless to say, I can't believe it took us this long to finally go on a hunt together. Jared drove up from his new place in College Station this morning to me
  11. I have collected wet clay or shale with many types of fossils embedded in it. I have found leaves, a fish, a pine cone, wooden bits, ect. Much of the fossils are there and havent turned to rock, so may not be considered an actual fossil. I am hoping some may have ideas on how to preserve these. I got them from Clarkia, ID. There is a youtube video called "Plants are Cool, too! Episode 2: Fossilized Forests!" that talks about the area. I am missing out on fossils opening it a wet clay because I can't split many thin layers, but splitting it in when dry it seems to crumble. Trying to figure
