  1. This came in a parcel of opal from Lightning Ridge. I have cut the bottom and a little of the side to be able to see inside better. The smaller opalized top portion is 8x10mm, the bottom opalized portion is 12x10mm. I have been told this may be a yabby button, however I’m not sure because all the photos I’ve seen of yabby buttons don’t look a whole lot like this. I appreciate any feedback, and feel free to ask any questions:) thanks!
  2. I've been living in Chinese Camp, California for five years. I wouldn't have moved here except that I took my wife and two children looking for ammonite fossils. We found none that day, but we ended seeing an old country store for sale (only business in the abandoned town) and eventually bought it and live on the property. The fossils around here are all late Jurassic, but because of the forces that created the Sierra Nevada mountains, the fossils are very rare and in poor shape. Finding a whole ammonite, no matter small is a cause for great celebration, but this doesn't dampen my enjo
  3. Ossicle

    Oxford Clay oddity

    Jurassic, Callovian, Oxford Clay, Peterborough Member, Yaxley, Cambridgeshire. The closest thing I can think of to what this looks like is a belemnite, but the overall shape is wrong, and the cross-section is very wrong for belemnites I've found at this site and elsewhere. I haven't completely ruled that out though, and opinions would be appreciated.
  4. Only two weeks ago, when i was out rock hunting on the south western coast of Norway, I found two rocks with fossils inside them. In Norway, fossils are only found in Oslo, Trondheim and on the northern part of Norway. The only fossils found in the west are in Ritlandskratere, an ancient meteor crater, four hours away from where i found mine. The fossils are some brachiopods and clams, a trilobite tail, a belemnite fragment and a belemnite phragmocone. There could maybe be some new species or sub species. I am waiting for the response of the Natural History

    From the album: Delaware Fossils

    Belemnitella americana showing internal molds. Upper Cretaceous Mt. Laurel Formation Delaware, USA It's not often one finds an internal mold of the guard where the internal texture is clearly visible. Although internal molds of other animals are common at this locality, any internal molds of belemnites are few and far between. Broken though it is, the lower specimen is one of my favorite belemnites.

    Triassic Cephalopods fro Epidaurs

    Hi Guys, I'm taking advantage of this period of staying at home to recheck and better identify the fossils from my collection. Someone can tell me the genus and species of these triassic fossils of Epidaurus. Thanks in advance and please stay home if you can !!

    Acrocoelites oxyconus

    Hello, I have recently bought this fossil as an Acrocoelites oxyconus, from the toarcien of Tournadous, France. But after seeing the photos of Ludwigia, and others in the internet, it seems that it is not Acrocoelites oxyconus. The fossil looks to be broken and glued: Thanks!

    From the album: Late Jurassic belemnites of European Russia

    My biggest belemnite guard in terms of volume, 13 cm long and 5 cm wide, and it's not even complete

    Belemnite protoconch

    From the album: Late Jurassic belemnites of European Russia

    Guardless preservation in Shmelovka allows to see protoconchs, this one is only 0,3 mm wide

    One of the rarer sites with dissolved calcite, Shmelovka features guardless phragmacones, which you can even sift for

    Oxfordian Hibolites

    From the album: Late Jurassic belemnites of European Russia

    These are typical Mod-Oxfordian finds, small (2-3 cm) fusiform belemnite guards

    A big one

    From the album: Late Jurassic belemnites of European Russia

    Lots of belemnites in Peski quarry, but they are either small or partial. This is a rare big Callovian (?) specimen

    Partial belemnite "skeleton"

    From the album: Late Jurassic belemnites of European Russia

    Bronnitsy is the place to search for articulated guards and phragmacones. They are rare, but I hope to find a good one some day.

    Typical Fili Park finds

    From the album: Late Jurassic belemnites of European Russia

    Lots of nature lovers visit the site to collect belemnites. They are not large and require someone to actually dig holes more or less frequently, otherwise they are quickly depleted. Here are the biggest specimens, 6-8 cm long

    Belemnitella americana (Morton) Big Brook
  19. Made a recent trip to Greens Mill Run and got quite a few nice fossils, particularly fossil bone. Large fragment of a Pliocene baleen whale lower jaw bone, whale rib fragment, baleen whale tympanic bullas, unfused whale vertebral epiphysis, Chesapectens jeffersonius, other Chesapectens spp., clams, etc. All collected in-situ, all from the Yorktown formation. Also quite a few sharks teeth collected from gravel bars. Also one pic, the one with the belemnites lined across the top, is all in-situ Cretaceous stuff. Great trip, digging the stuff up was a nice change from all the gravel sifting haha

    From the album: Delaware Fossils

    Belemnitella americana from the Maastrtichian of Delaware. This one is strangely rounded and scarred. Looks like something bit it and it lived long enough to heal over.

  22. Found this a few weeks ago in the Walnut Formation (Texas Cretaceous) in a spot where I know belemnites have been found. It looked remarkably like the belemnites I found in England (Jurassic) because of the shallow recess and the shape, but this has these weird teardrops. I dismissed it initially , thinking it was too light for a fossil, plus, these teardrops kind of make it look more like just a woody plant something or other. So then I dropped it and it broke. Looked at it under the microscope and it is for sure not a woody plant something! It is crystalized inside so maybe that is why it i
