    Can you help identify this?

    Just found this fossil laying in a rock quarry while fishing, looks like a bone running all the way throughout the rock? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Is it worth taking it home ?

    I found the following fossils hunting the Nicolet River Formation (Upper Ordovician). The layer where the specimens are is really friable, which makes them really fragile to remove, so I will have to remove a large piece of rock as a support. They measure approximately 2 and 1 inches respectively. I have two questions: 1. What is it ? 2. Is it worth taking it home?

    Trying to ID some colored spot on rock

    I don't know if they are traces fossil or geological in nature, do you know what these spots are? The period is Late Ordovician Thanks! #1 #2 #3
  4. Found in Alberta, Canada. Any help identifying would be much appreciated. Thank you !

    Another Quarry Find

    Found another cool piece at work today- is it anything special? It came out of a load of rubble from the Milton Quarry, in Milton, Ontario.

    A request for ID help (Canada)

    Hi, This is my first post so welcome to everyone Following are 3 stones I found along the shore of the Manitoulin Island, Ontario, Canada. I will be grateful for your help in identification.
  7. Fall promises to be spectacular in many ways. If you dream of colors, you will like the following. I like fossil hunting in the fall, although it's not really hunting, the fossils are underwater so it's more like fishing. Anyway, this is one of my many trips to this place, it's not very far and it allows me to go for a weekend nature walk. This is Ordovician, the site is not as beautiful or rich in fossils as the other sites we see in this forum, but it is rich in brachiopods, crinoids, bryozoans and gastropods. This time, I chose a theme to showcase my special finds of the day.

    Caddisfly Larva?

    Hi again everyone! I have a small fossil from a unit of lacustrine laminated silt from here in Saskatoon from the very late Pleistocene or early Holocene. The unit directly overlays a unit of till from the Wisconsinan glaciation. The unit contains carbonized plants stems, some of which are filled with wood boring beetle larva frass, diatoms, and burrows similar to Cruziana. In one of these hollowed-out burrows, I found this fossil, which is approximately 0.5 mm in length. It is composed of many extremely small carbonized plant fragments, all arranged horizontally from longest to shortest. I ha

    ID type of bone?

    Found washed out from a river bank in Northern Alberta. Wondering if there were any guesses as to what type of bone it could be, I was thinking some sort of Scapula? Might not be able to tell from the photo angle but its nearly completely flat except for the round joint at the end.
  10. Lisa Cormier, a teacher from Prince Edward Island came across a fossil that could be 300 million years old when she was walking on the beach at Cap-Egmont. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/prince-edward-island/pei-300-million-fossil-found-pei-1.6564455 Parks Canada scientists came to investigate. The fossil has not yet been identified, but it is believed to be likely a reptile.
  11. Hi! I’m still trying to identify one fossil from a particular unit of Pleistocene/Early Holocene lacustrine silt from my hometown of Saskatoon, but I figured I would look away from it for a bit to try and identify another fossil from the same unit I’ve been unable to classify. I have two specimens, both apparently of the same species. They are both approximately 0.5 millimetres across. They are perfectly circular, with lines radiating from the centre and rings of alternating colours (possibly representing growth lines). One specimen is photographed dorsally, showing its circular shape, the ot
  12. Hello! Thank you all for taking the time to read this and (hopefully!) help me identify a very interesting find from Saskatoon! I was on a fossil hunting trip to a local exposure of Pleistocene glacial lake sediments in Saskatoon, and I took home a few samples of it to review later. While looking through one piece (the material is silt but breaks like a rock and is somewhat laminated), I saw this very strange shape. Attached are a few images, some simply in situ, others through a microscope. My apologies if the image quality is not ideal, I do not currently have any better equipment. There ar

    What is this 3d puzzle ?

    I found this yesterday, it was very fragile and broken in many pieces when I handled it.

    Sowerbyella, Nicolet River Formation

    Location shows huge die-off of Sowerbyella sericea and other brachiopods in smaller numbers. The specific layer could not be determined as it was discovered at ground level on the beach. Loose as float,. The following reference has been used to aid in identification Geologie des Region de Saint-Jean (parti nord) et de Beloeil (1985) Gouvernement du Quebec - Ministere de l'energie et des Ressources Direction General de l'Exploration geologique et minerale Geologie des Region de Saint-Jean (parti nord) et de Beloeil
  17. its my first time back in a while .. just noticing the new format anyhow i found this within 10 mins of arriving to the beach

    Brachiopod ID please

    There are so many brachiopods that look alike, it's hard to identify them. Is this Dalmanella sp ? I found it in the Nicolet River formation (Late Ordovician) each one is 1/2 inch

    Cleaning of Fossil Shells

    I have had this hunk of rock from Manitoulin Island for quite some time now, but I have never attempted to really clean it before. Does anyone have any tips for cleaning the fossils, but leaving them in the rock? I would just like to be able to analyze them more closely. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
  21. Like the title says, I collected this when I was a kid in Woodstock Ontario. Not sure what I'm looking at exactly. I'm thinking the bigger thing is horn coral of some kind?
  22. Hello guys, I was out fossil hunting at the Niagara Escarpment of Hamilton, Ontario today and I came across this odd piece of Rochester formation shale (Clinton Group) with a knobby object on it. Could it be anything underneath all that shale or is it just my wishful thinking?? It also got some calcitic bits on the side too.
  23. Spotted this today at an antique market. Wondering if there is any chance it is real.
  24. I found this clam buried in mud along Joshua’s Creek in Oakville, near Lake Ontario, the hotspot of Ordovician fossils. Measurements are 7cm by 6cm. I’m particularly intrigued by the growth rings, since they protrude out rather visibly and considering I’ve never seen this in any other kind of fossil or living clam species. Can anyone help with identifying what species of fossil clam this is?
