  1. Afternoon everybody. I found this in Feb 2020, after Storm Dennis, on my same south Suffolk beach. I've looked at many vertebrae images online and in books, and none seem quite right. It looks closest to a seal...? But that doesn't seem right. Thanks for any guidance!
  2. Are there any Seattle-area folks on here who have tried hunting for beach fossils around Alki Point? You can see the outcrop pretty well on satellite images and it's on the geological maps. This Blakeley formation is pretty crumbly, though, so I'm not sure whether any meaningful fossils would survive being washed out in the surf. Guess there's only one way to find out! Since we're coming up on the new moon, the low tides are nicely timed for a long lunch break, so I'll plan to check this out some time in the next few days and report back.
  3. Hey there, just moved to Charlotte area from up in CT. I got bit by the fossil bug bad up there in Little Falls NY, fell in love with trilobites and the "just one more." So, having just settled in, I am looking for places to go hunting nearby. I know there's a place in the Uwharrie to find petrified wood, and the eastern rivers have shale and fossil beds, but can't quite find any open or legal locations defined enough to be able to drive to them. In the rare case I can make it to the coast, I'll be beachcombing for hours if anyone can point me to a decent shoreline. I'm interested in any
  4. I'm becoming a habitual "is this wood" poster... I found this one yesterday on the shores of Lake Washington near an outcrop of the Blakeley formation, and just polished one face using sandpaper. Specimen measures 1.5 inches in the longest dimension and the polished face measures 1 inch x 1 inch. SG is 2.48 by suspension method, +/- 0.01g accuracy. The lighter spot on the polished face is where I got lazy before removing the entire weathered surface.

    Petrified wood with iron vein?

    Found this on the beach the other day along Puget Sound north of Seattle, and I just polished one face a bit (first photo) with some sandpaper to see the un-weathered stone. Is this siltstone, petrified wood, something else? Has anyone seen one with iron like this? Edit: I sanded it some more and took another photo. Pretty sure this is wood, based on the grain, but I'm no expert!

    Beach agate, possible bivalve?

    I found this on a rocky beach in West Seattle. Looks to be pretty transparent with a bit of banding. I assume it's just geological, but based on the size and shape I guess it could maybe be a bivalve fossil? SG is 2.61
  7. I wanted to thank everyone on this forum for making the month of January an extraordinary month in my life. We take annual trips to Myrtle Beach and I have always loved to look for the little sharks teeth in the sand. After 10 years of this, I have a nice little bottle filled with sharks teeth, none bigger than the size of a quarter. But this trip I decided to have a closer look at the ground. Without experience, I had no idea what I was looking at. So I just picked up things that looked unusual and brought them back in my room and started posting pictures on here. I had no ide

    Gift from the Sea

    It's amazing what washes up on the Outer Banks - modern sea shells, sea glass, bits of wrecked ships and fossils, too! These shells embedded in sandstone washed ashore on Hatteras Island, NC, from the Pleistocene sandstone shelf on which the island rests.
