  1. Butvar for pyritized fossils?

    I'm going to be making a trip to the Waco Pit this weekend, and I'm hoping to find some pyritized ammonites. If I get lucky and find some, can I use butvar to help preserve them? Also, is there any way to shine them up just a bit? I know a harsh polishing scrub would damage them, but what about something like a toothbrush to get them clean?
  2. Hey everyone, I'm looking for trip suggestions for this December. My wife and I recently had a little time free up and we have flight/hotel points to redeem. We'd prefer somewhere that's not super cold (we're from Colorado) but something that also has some fun things to do besides collecting, like hiking or exploring. I've been considering trips to NC, SC, or the Peace River. I'd love to hear from anyone who would have some suggestions for places where we can vacation and I can get out for a few afternoons to look for cool specimens. I'd be particularly interested in fish/shark tooth locations, but invertebrates would also be cool (especially ammonites, trilobites, etc). Let me know what you guys think - any suggestion is appreciated!
  3. Jurassic Fall Trip

    Last Saturday I was invited to a collecting trip by a buddy of mine. It took us to the Tyrolian part of the Northern calcareous Alps. We worked at a condensed layer that contains a big part of the Jurassic, Hettangian stage(marine ammonoid zones of the Hettangian). Several ammonoid zones are given within this layer. It ranges from the upper Hettangian(the yellow/orange colored top of the layer) down to the grey limestone of the panorbis zone. We were lucky because our gained block from the layer was full of ammonoids. It was kept as it was by my friend. I kept a smaller block which was laterally beside it. The split pic show two big specimen of Psiloceras naumanni
  4. I would like to get some fossils to seed some areas for both my sons to find some interesting things and to better learn the diversity of what is out there. I was thinking shark teeth , ammonites and trilobites stuff like that can any one help with this. I could ether trade or buy doesn't matter I'm just looking for a variety of stuff.
  5. Lake Texoma

    Good Morning! My wife and kids are spending a few days on the Texas side of Lake Texoma (Gordonville, Texas). Are there any places nearby that might yield a few of the famous ammonites from this region? Thanks in advance, Daniel
  6. I recently found this pair of Pleuroceras ammonites when splitting some concretion material I brought back from Buttenheim in Bavaria, Germany which I visited last May. From the Pliensbachian Spinatum Zone, Lower Jurassic. I wish I brought back more of that concretion material since it was so rich in complete ammonites.

  10. Hi, I have these two same sized Hildoceras, I'm thinking one is a Juvenile as can see the mouth border and one is a large one that has broken, would this be correct and would you say both specimens are the same ? Thanks.

    From the album Ammonites

    For thinking I'm not an ammonite collector, I do seem to have a few. Just wish I could find the rest of them. in boxes somewhere. Someday.
  17. Hi, stumbled on this with the kids. We are all curious as to what it could have been, of anything at all. Really know nothing at all and probably sound silly, but best guess is ammonites? Or is it something completely different, if ever organic? Thanks in advance James

  20. Two Moroccan? ammonites

    A got these two ammonites a while ago, no information on location but I'm assuming morroco. I know I need to clean the matrix off of one, still need to find a my scribe. Any one have any further information?
  21. Hockhockson Brook

    Here's another site you might want to try. If you've ever seen Ralph's MAPS collection this is one of the places where you can find some really big Ammonites. If you look in the boulders at the old dam by Tinton Ave. you can find some , but you are going to have to hammer them out. If you go upstream and look in the riffles and gravel bars sometimes you can find them just laying around. There are gravel bars and riffles all the way up to Hockhockson Rd., but getting to them can be difficult. I'll post more sites as I remember(I've had some strokes so my memory can be difficult) so all can enjoy. Good luck looking and if you like to fish the stream is trout stocked. I forgot to mention this site is in Tinton Falls NJ.
  22. fossil site

    I hope this is the right spot for this information. I use to live in NJ an there is a site that not to many people take advantage of. In Highlands, (Monmouth County) at the end of Shore Drive there is a little park(Popomora). If you walk to the end of the beach to where the boulders start, in the wash and in the rocks you can find many different types of fossils. We have found some really nice opalized ammonite pieces and quite a few baculites. Now I know the Marl Pits are closed , but we always found them on the water side of the Henry Hudson Trail.If you decide to take a walk down the trail about a half mile or so towards Atlantic Highlands is a small stream, there might be a small bridge there, it tends to wash out with the storms. But anyway on the water side we have found some really nice stuff there. I hope this helps someone looking for new sites. While you are there you can swim and fish also. Good Luck.
  23. Isle of Wight Fossils

    Hi guys; I have recently been treated to a nice week down the Isle of Wight and having spent the first day down in Yaverland today I though I would share some of my finds. 1) these both appear to be Vertebra, I'm assuming they are dinosaur as I'm preatty sure I've read somewhere that crocodiles have concave and convex ends to their Vertebra but may be totally of base with that assumption.
