  1. Albian ammonites

    On the fossil fair last weekend I bought a lot of phosphatised ammonites of the gault clay of France, from Cap Blanc Nez. I got quite a collection of cenomanian ammonites from there, but the albian specimens are rare since the layers aren't accesible any more due to the silting up of the beach. Although they occasionnaly wash up on the beach after storms. during the eighties the layers were still accesible and often prospected by collectors, thus resulting in large quantities of those ammonites in collections of older prospectors. On the fair they sold one of those older collections from this location, lots of boxes full with cenomanian and albian ammonites for 20€ a box. I found 2 boxes with albian material to my liking and after haggeling a little bit over the price I took them home. At first glance most of the specimens were a multitude of Hoplitidea ammonites, but a few hidden gems were in the box like a small but perfect nautilus and a few rarer ammonites. Lots of the specimens need som prepwork, this is what I got prepped or cleaned so far: prepp in progres on a rare Diploceras:
  2. Ammonite with damage

    Echioceras Raricostatum Well Calcified Example With ? Predation form Bath Somerset U.K.. Quite a nice example and a little different from the more common Raricostitoides in a very hard nodules Prep revealed an area of outer whorl completely missing in an otherwise very well preserved Ammonite . I believe that some academics believe this is predation, I’m not so sure but a nice specimen despite this . What do you think in general ? cheers Bobby
  3. I recently acquired a collection of assorted rocks and minerals. Many of these specimens are from the 70's, 80's and 90's ( am in the US). In this group there is two ammonite in matrix specimens. I believe they are Russian due to them being pyritized. I am having a difficult time finding info about what species and what value these specimens may have. I go to the Tucson show every year and I don't often see ammonites like this. I was told to come here to find the experts! Thank you for your time, I look forward to posting more now that I am a member StoneAgeQuarry
  4. Some unknown commercial fossils

    I bought these when I was very young, infact, the small ammonite was the first fossil I ever had. They are all cheap commercial fossils that never came with labels, and the ones that do have labels are unsatisfactory to say the least. I'm hoping some of you chaps know what some of these are and the vague area they're from.
  5. "I've Got the Snitch" Fossil hunter finds 185-million-year-old ‘golden snitch’ with ancient sea creature inside Charlotte Edwards, Digital Technology and Science Reporter, Nov. 18, 2019, https://www.thesun.co.uk/tech/10369483/golden-snitch-fossil-yorkshire/ Yours, Paul H.
  6. I am fortunate to live in a fossiliferous neighborhood in Fort Worth Texas. Not only have I found a strata of gryphea across the street from my house, but I have found pelecypods in my backyard and an ammonite in Arcadia park down the street from where I live. Just recently I found more gryphea in my yard. All of the fossils in my neighborhood are, according to my research, Lower Cretaceous in age. I took one of my grandsons down to one site a mere one hundred yards from my home and he found excellent specimens of gryphea. (Samples are attached). Have any of my fellow Texans found gryphea in their locations? ----- Olenellus
  7. I made a "concentrated" study of the Georgetown formation -about an hour north of me (I usually hunt in the Glen Rose and Walnut of Texas) so it was fun to hit up four spots to see what different species I could find. I was happy to gather a good variety of specimens, including a couple of "best" specimens of common Texas finds - a lovely BIG Neithia scallop with both the top and bottom valve intact, a nice Ostrea carinata and lots of well preserved turritells, including the tiniest I've ever found. But the fun stuff is the Echinoids and the Ammonites! For the Echinoids: I FINALLY found a Salenia Mexicana (that didn't crumble in my hands like the LAST one I found) even if it is a bit water worn. I'm still happy with it. Plus an excellently preserved Heteraster obliquatus and a nice Phymosoma which is still encased in a bit of matrix, but that's okay. But my find of the day was the Tetragramma taffi (i'm pretty sure on that ID, let me know if I"m wrong!) Even thought it's quite squished and has a lot of matrix, it's still my first one, so I"m stoked!! The "other" fossils: A pyrite shell, not great, but cool because it's pyrite The Echinoids! Phymosoma Salenia mexicana: Tetragramma taffi a nice Heteraster:
  8. Geology club excursion to the coast of France This weekend we had a 2 day excursion to the northern coast of France. First up were the Cenomanian cliffs in that area, although the use of tools was limited we were allowed to collect in the boulders laying on the beach. The stormy weather had done a great job at providing fresh material, and lots of fossils could be picked up on the beach. The 2nd day we went a few kilometers to the south were late Jurassic cliffs are exposed. There were no restrictions on collecting here, although we stayed away from the cliffs for obvious safety reasons. The fossils were sparser than on the previous location, but with a little effort we found bivalves and gastropod steinkerns , ammonites and evan a few very nice echinoids. pictures from saturday: pictures from sunday:
  9. Trinity River tiny ammonite

    Is this called ammonite or another name for these specie? I found these at Dallas Trinity river grey clay / shale layer. I think these are upper cretaceous Austin chalk formation.
  10. Airabrading at last....

    So for several years i knew that getting better prepresults would have to include a air abrader. With my Junair silent compressor this was problematic as there is not enough airflow, so these last years i was limited to pen work.... A few month’s ago my beloved Junair got a leak in the tank, repair was not very cheap, so i upgraded to a much more powerful compressor, not silent but workable....I also bought a very old Renfert abrader, very cheap, which after replacing the filter set started to work very fine.... So here’s some prep results with this setup. At last i was able to prep a few of my finds from my 2012 trip to the Lafarge quarry at Belmont, France. Allthough i ‘m really happy with the results so far, it’s a very slow process, even with the replaced filterset on the Renfert. Some matrix is just too problematic for this Renfert machine. I’m not sure why, maybe it’s not effective enough, or maybe it’s because the unit is limited to 6 bar, so i cannot push it more..... At the moment i’m waiting my custom build Eckhard Petersen abrader, this unit should cover it. So i hope for more and better pix in the future....
  11. Ammonites from Nigeria!

    Hi, everyone! Recently I got some ammonites from Nigeria, but I can not found any reference. So I have no idea how many species of them, I need your help!
  12. Ammonites Bavaria

    Hello, I have found these ammonites a few years ago in Bavaria, Germany. These are found in an area roughly 20km from Solnhofen (Jurassic). I beleave the geological formation in this area is a little older then the formations in Solnhofen but i can't find proof if this. I hope these pics are of enough quality to provide an ID. Regards, Arno
  13. Hello everyone, I recently received this large 14inch ammonite and the shipper had no care in the world to put even an ounce of protection thus this is the result I'm not experienced with much prep and not confident superglue would cut it so what would you all recommend to help repair this specimen as well as clean off some of the dirt/dust layer coating alot of it?
  14. Ammonite Species

    ok to Dinosaur World, Plant City and there is this museum that has load of fossils and also has an exploration cave show in there and has loads of ammonite fossils but for 3 pics of these ammonite fossils is i dont know the species and the genus of them.
  15. It was raining this morning, so my best site was near Yaxley. The fossils really pop there when wet. In one hour of searching I had 13 fragments of ammonite. I thought it was 14, but when washing them realised one was a miffed snail, who is now in the garden. Mostly the ammonites are pyratised, and preserve sutures and ornamentation well. I found 8 crinoid sections, including round ossicles - I normally only find star shaped ones.
