  1. I came across a beautiful fossilized hash plate, which is extremely delicate as it measures less than a centimeter in thickness, do you have any recommendations to make it stronger?. Additionally, I am curious to know if it is possible to enhance the appearance of the fossils by applying a coating of some sort. When wet, the plate is very attractive, but it looks dull and lacks variation in color when dry.

    Is this coral ?

    I found a unique fossil in the Ordovician formation, but I'm unsure if it's coral or something else. Any thoughts or suggestions?

    Need help to ID brachiopods

    I found this stunning fossilized hash plate, which is believed to be from the Late Ordovician period. It was found in the Nicolet River formation located in Quebec, Canada. I am seeking assistance in identifying the brachiopods that are present on the plate.
  4. Hi everyone! I'm moving from my current country of resident, the Netherland, to Canada. Through the years I've amassed a semi-large fossil and mineral collection, and I want to take some of that collection with me to Canada. My only concern is that I might run into problem at the airport, so I wanted to ask around here if anybody had any experience with air travel with fossils/minerals in the Netherlands/Canada. I couldn't really find any information about this from the Netherlands, and Canada just vaguely says "it may be illegal to bring cultural property into Canada,

    Fossil party aftermath

    Greetings, wise paleontologist! I've stumbled upon an odd mix of bryozoa that has left me scratching my head. Before I slap a label on it, I thought I'd ask the expert (that's you!). No brachiopods or debris in sight, so it's not your typical fossil party aftermath. Could it be the shattered remains of a bryozoa colony? Who knows what drama went down there! Care to shed some light on this puzzle? And, if I may ask, is it wise to cut this thing in half? If so, any tips on which axes to choose? I don't want to accidentally start a bryozoa brawl! Thanks for you

    Fossil or just a stange rock ?

    Yesterday, i found this rock near a railroad. I have never seen anything like this, do you think it could be some kind of leaf fossil or just an interesting rock ? Found in Québec, Canada

    What has bones this thin and flat?

    Found North of Edmonton washing out into the river from the hillside. It's still bone, not yet fossilized but I am stumped as to what animals/ what bone is this thin. Thanks for your help!

    Bison or Cow Molar?

    I was on a hike with my boyfriend yesterday along a lake in Central Alberta, Canada when we came across this bone in the river. I know some of the discourse of using the stylid as an identification tool to differentiate between cows and bison but I can’t seem to figure this one out! Please let me know!
  13. Fishing for fossils might sound like a strange hobby, but I've discovered that it's the perfect combination of relaxation and excitement. Instead of reeling in fish, I'm reeling in ancient fossils from the Richelieu river. And while I might not have any fish tales to tell, I do have some great stories about my fossil-hunting adventures. It might not be the most conventional hobby, but it's certainly a fun one. And the best part? No fishing license required! The Lorraine Group is known for its abundance of fossils, which provides valuable information about the region's past environ

    Fossil or geologic formation?

    I’ve been going through my drawer and I rediscovered these guys from many years ago. I have no idea where they are from or what they are (except that I picked them up from somewhere on vacation when I was young). I don’t know what to make of the smooth hole going down the centres. I’m interested in your thoughts on this.

    Is this a trace fossil or geologic ?

    It was found in an Ordovician formation

  17. This is number 4 of 5 fossils I have been unable to identify in the last 2 years. This fossil has been found on the shores of Lake Huron, in the Grey Bruce county area in Ontario, Canada. The pictures don’t show it terribly well, but the flat base of this fossil/rock appears to be a large coral like shape that looks like it was circular shape but has been slightly eroded to give this 2/3 of a circle coral type shape. The material is raised slightly on the grey parts within the white part, and the white part is more depressed in/less raised.
  18. The Photos attached are of the first of 5 fossils I have been unable to identify in the last 2 years. This fossil has been found on the shores of Lake Huron, in the Grey Bruce county area in Ontario, Canada. I’m excited to hear what you think this fossil (and the other fossils I will be posting in the next hour or so) are. Thanks for your help in advance.
  19. This is number 3 of the 5 fossils I have been unable to identify in the last 2 years. This fossil has been found on the shores of Lake Huron, in the Grey Bruce county area in Ontario, Canada. I am not entirely sure if this even is a fossil, but it’s a unique pattern of holes in this rock that make me think there was biological matter that rotted away leaving many small imprints. Curious to hear your thoughts.
  20. This mystery fossil was found in a rock pile in the Caledon, ON area, not far from the Niagara Escarpment. When I split the rock, it was revealed and split into convex and concave halves that then fit together. It is almost perfectly circular, and is 13mm (0.51 inches or just over 1/2 inch) in diameter. There are clearly many other fossils within this rock, but I fear splitting it further and destroying this mystery fossil without ID on it first. I've taken it to a few other hobbyists I know in person, but they has also been unable to ID it, and the best guess I've rec
  21. The crinoid columnals i have found are usually round, pentagonal and star shaped, but today I found one that is square Among a thousand crinoids columnals, this is the only square one I have ever found, why? To which part of the crinoid does it belong to?
