  7. Theropod

    Hi is this a theropod, if so what kind? I see an embryo minus the shell. The head(?) Is separate from the body except in third pic I placed it back on. The whole thing is extremely heavy and 19 inches long and approximately 11 inches wide.
  8. Is this Agatized Coral or something else?

    Hello, My grandma had this in her backyard and she asked me to pick it up when she noticed how shiny it was. She helped my clean it up and I took pictures on my phone. I was wondering if this is just an agatized geode? Or if it may be an agatized coral geode? I'm just unsure due to the texture on the top of the piece.

  13. Fossil Algae, Microbial Mat Or Something?

    This was found in the Sardis formation last year. Late Cretaceous. It was looked at by one geology professor who said he didn't really know what it was, but thought it was agatized. Perhaps fossil Algae or something of the like? This is the condition i found it in...maybe a Native had found it before me and sampled the material, or maybe freeze-thaw cycles made it break, i don't know.

    From the album Adventure is an individual thought!

    These are the most unusual chalcedony forms to find in the World. Here is one laid upon some pine needles. Some spots will have so many, you will have to pick only the most interesting ones! Have a collecting bag around your neck to put them into it. Have a walking stick to hike with, do some prodding in thick pine needles. We have seen some rattle snakes, actually one, but it was nearly five feet long a Basalt ridge. Just be aware. Wonderful camping. Well maintained roads. Gasoline, groceries and water to be found in Reserve. On a map draw a fifty mile circle and you are just beginning to find places to hunt. Most are to the north, east and west of Reserve. The locals will help you figure out where to begin.

    From the album Adventure is an individual thought!

    This is a typical flat to find loose chalcedony. There are areas of Basalt and Rhyolite that you will find the sources of all of the agate and chalcedony. Once you understand lava flows from the Oligocene volcanics... you are on your way to finding the most unusual chalcedony in the world. Step into a Forest Service Office, get the large scale Forest map(s) you need, inquire as to where a good area to begin looking might be... and you are on your way. Make sure you mark where you camped... so you can find it next time and finish looking over the beautiful hillsides.

    From the album Adventure is an individual thought!

    Reserve, New Mexico is the center hub of agate hunting. Luna, New Mexico. Apache Creek, New Mexico. A thousand square miles of the roughest terrain in New Mexico. Bring a GPS so you do not get lost. Go further south to Glenwood Springs and check out the mining districts. Silver City and the copper mines are not too far away. Visit the Gila Cliff Dwellings. Worth the drive.
  17. Any help identifying this find will be greatly appreciated. Driving me crazy! Almost 2 inches long. Very hard like bone or agate. Has horizontal growth rings? (I haven't seen these in Teeth before) Partial exterior material. Looks like enamel at tip and bottom. Could it be a Cephalopod? Found at Picnic island while hunting! Tampa FL. Thank you! -Kimberly
  18. Help With Info On Marine Fossils Found

    Hi, My name is Rodney and I am a fairly new fossil hunter from HUmboldt County, coastal Northern California.What prompted me to write this post is some shells that I found at the beach on the south jetty recently. They are all between 2-3". My wife found the whole shell (second picture) when she was walking our dog there. I'm guessing it's a fossil of a cockle shell in limestone or shale. I went to the same spot to check it out. The last two times I went I found these shell fragments which appear to be agatized. Could these be fragments of fossils which have been filled in with or attached to chalcedony or quartz? One of them has a bluish moonstone like iridescence and they all appear to have banding. Is this possible or am I mistaking shells for something else? They seem too thick to be shells. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm going to keep going back to look for more; these are cool and I've never found anything like them on the beach before. Also if anyone knows of any good local spots or tips that would be great. I have checked out a few helpful websites, but I'm still not entirely sure what to look for. Thanks, Rodney
