  1. My annual information topic on the Tucson Fossil Show. Right now it looks like 43 different shows if you are including Gems, Minerals and Fossils. The latter being the smallest segment of the Show but the coolest . For those of you who went to this years show I don't expect much of a change but we still have a bit of time to go. Unfortunately the show has evolved from from a couple of close venues to now being all over the place. Just take more time and patience with parking. When to arrive: My suggestion is when the dealers open . This will give you the best opportunity

    Is this an egg?

    This was found in NW Arizona. Can anyone tell me what it is? Is it an egg of some sort? Thanks in advance for your time!

    Arizona Fossil?

    Found this in Winslow Arizona. I'd like to know what type of mineral these fossils are in if they're fossils.

    Please help id

    Hi guys! I have a few fossils found recently that are not identified yet. The first is thick and looks like half of a round object. I found it near Payson AZ. The second wasn't too far from the first. It may be coral from what I can tell. The third is from a place called the Paleo dig site 13 miles from Payson. It's a conglomerate of many different sea mollusks I think? There are at least 4 different looking shells I found all around the site that seem to be agatized. Any help id and for the conglomerate of shells, how do I safely remove the mudstone or limestone to expose the shells more
  5. AgateJaspercat


    Can shells become agate? They are very opaque. There are a few different examples I found outside of Payson AZ on a pull out by hwy 87

    Dinosaur egg?

    Found in the desert in Tucson, Arizona. The “spots” are where the outer shell have peeled off and there a a slight ridge

  8. After a one year off for Covid the Tucson show will open the last week of January. Here is a link that provides you info to the +40 venues. Arizona still has high daily Covid 19 cases, so some venues or dealer rooms may require you to wear a mask, be safe. https://xpopress.com/showcase/profile/1/tucson-gem-mineral-fossil-showcase Lots of major changes will occur this year with the location of fossil dealers. The Arizona Mineral & Fossil Show which occupied the Tucson City Center Hotel was moving to the El Conquistador Resort but their web site says this show
  9. Hey fossil people... more specifically hey Arizona fossil people. I'm wondering if any of you have run across fossilized horn coral in this state? If you have, tell me about it. I'd love to see examples of what you've found. I"ve found lots of brachiopods and other marine life in Arizona but this is the first time I've found horn coral. The idea that Arizona used to be underwater is fascinating to me. Theyre not the prettiest specimens... but i found them and they're mine! Lol. For those wondering, I found these near Payson Arizona. Same place I've found byrozoans, brachiopods, and

  13. I found lots of petrified wood in the lower part of the Miocene Chalk Canyon Formation north of Phoenix. The layer is mostly sandy and pumaceous. Does anyone know what the siliceous 1mm long elongated spheres are or how they formed? Could they be fecal pellets, fungi or other fossils. I have seen similar structures associated with California Miocene palm wood. @paleoflor Penny is 19 mm across.

    What kinds of fossils are these?

    I found these in the Huachuca Mountains of Arizona. Most are very small, about 1 cm each or less. A couple of them might be almost 2 cm across. Can anyone tell me what these fossils might be?
  15. Hope this isn’t inappropriate for this forum. For everyone who was following my excavations, Dr Klein presented his findings. Dr Lucas is coming back later this year to pick up a few more tons of my tracks.

    Sponge or coral?

    Hello, wondering if this is a fossilized sea sponge or coral? It is large and quite heavy. Found in the Coconino forest past Payson and Strawberry.
  17. Everyone I've encountered on this site has been very helpful, so thank you. However, I'm in need of more help. For the last year I've been collecting real fossils in the field and selling some to pay for more exotic rocks. In a recent post I found that my Solnhofen shrimp is, if not totally, mostly fake. Now I'm quite suspicious of my entire purchased collection and was hoping you could help me identify fakes. The first two pictures are apparently Priscacara, Green River Formation, Eocene; the next two supposedly Asteroidea, Morocco, Ordovician; the last three supposedly Triassic, Arizona petr

    Fossils or just neat rocks?

    Hello, apologies for opening a new thread. Are these just neat looking rocks or possible fossils? I could not tell.

    Fossilized shells?

    Hello, Over the years I have found several fossilized shells on the Mogollon Rim in Arizona. I was wondering if these can be identified?
  20. My 8yr old found this neat fossil and we could use some help with identification. He found it on the Bell Rock climb hike of Sedona Arizona. The fossil is slightly concave/curved. It's 4 cm long and about 2cm wide with some tapering. You can see three distinct tips on one end and is flat on the other. You all came through the last time so any leads would be immensely appreciated. My son is just dying to find out what it is he found.

    Amphibian bones

    Been searching my upper level recently- Shinarump Formation, late Triassic. Finding some decent bone pieces. Most likely amphibian, particularly Metoposaurus.
