  1. Hi everyone! I am looking for advice on a UV-flashlight. Next month I am going on a field trip to Poland with my fossil club. The first few days of the trip are in Gdansk where we will go and look at the cutting and preparation process of raw baltic amber, but we will also have the possibility to go search for amber at night. The club recommended to bring our own UV-flashlight and I am planning to purchase one but I have a hard time finding what the requirements of such flashlight are if I am planning to use it for searching amber. Does anyone have any tips what I s
  2. Hi, I would really appreciate any advice on the following. I recently bought a set of amber on a well-known auction site (sent from Lithuania). I have read up on how to test for authenticity and did a salt water test, the amber floated- so I guess all good there. I then burnt one, it released a nasty chemical/kerosene smell. Is there anything else I can do to check for authenticity? I bought the amber as a graduation gift for my students, so would hate the idea of giving them a piece of plastic! All advice appreciated.
  3. Things are getting pretty serious over in The Fossil Zone, so I cleared off a few books and replaced them with fossils. Who needs to read, anyway? Feel free to ask questions about particular pieces. Whole collection: The turtle skull is real, but the surrounding matrix has been stained by the preparator for better visibility. Some here might recognize the new claw that arrived broken in the mail There is a Vinctifer comptoni fish on the back right, along with a negative Grallator footprint, which I can't seem to find a good way to display.

  4. I could not find the date I found the attached amber from Lee Creek (about 26 trips). Had misplaced it (in one of my Miscellaneous bins, instead of one of my Lee Creek bins), but finally located it and is 4 inches long and 3 inches wide and a little over an inch high. I wonder how many, if any, inclusions could be inside?
  5. Hello my dear friends, Well I wanted to show off a recent article with my findings described by professionals. Soon, I will officially have 21 insects with my name/name/ invented name that I have found for science. Of course there were more but patronymic is not always possible. This time one of the beetles was described with the maiden name of my mother and our family. Stagetus szydlowskae. "Etymology. Patronymic, dedicated to mother and the family from the mother's side of Artur Michalski - Anna Michalska (Anna Szydlowska)." Article - https://www.rese

    Gigantic Chunk of Amber?

    I don’t know from which locality this specimen originated. I found it among my late grandfather’s property. From what I can gather, this is an extremely large specimen of amber. It weighs approximately 110 lbs, measures approximately 22” x 18” x 11” and features many interesting inclusions from what i can see. I’ve performed a scratch test, hot needle test, acetone test, smell test, saltwater test, UV light test, and specific gravity test… all of which seem to confirm its identity as amber. If this is true, however, based on the information I can find, it would seem that I’ve come
