    Is this fossil wood?

    Is this fossil wood or something else. New to Iding fossils. Two sides of the same piece. Found in coastal south Carolina. Thanks!

    Hidden Fossil

    Hi, I found this beautiful little asterophyllites yesterday and noticed that there seems to be some rock covering part of the fossil. I'd like to be able to remove the rock and expose the fossil. It's very solid and too thin for any of my chisels. Would an air-abrasive pen or dental equipment work? Perhaps professional help would be appropriate.

  4. On one of the last days of 2021, my daughter and I went for a walk to my favorite place. This is a forest stream in the Troparevo Park. I have been interested in these places for several years from the point of view of observing an island of nature within a large metropolis. I observe many species of birds, insects and plants there. There are species listed in the Red Book of Moscow. Here is an example of a very rare insect "Conocephalus dorsalis" - https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/93245215, which I observed in August. I hope that my observation will be taken into accou

    Another Coral

    This time I chose a specimen of the Early Carboniferous tabulate coral Michelinia favosa which I found a few years ago on the Hook Peninsula in Ireland.

  9. Good evening to all participants! I have accumulated a lot of local (from Ukraine) material - I decided to sort it out, and recurring fossils, or not of interest to me, offers you an exchange. Everything in the photos is one lot. Consists of: 1. Tile from Carboniferous period with fern print; 2. A fragment of the armor of a armored fish Podolaspis Lerichei of the Devonian period; 3. Tile with Silrian brachiopods and tentaculites; 4. Mollusk of Neogene; 5. A small fragment of a fossilized araucaria of the Carboniferous period with quartzite crystals; 6. 2 fragments of orthocer

    Detail work

    Unlike the soft oil-shale, I've been preparing this Knightia from a much harder matrix. It's still oil-shale but doesn't seem to flake off as easily as the other. I love how I can see the specific bones and the scale is a bonus. Here is my question to the frum: The dental tool shown in the photo is what I've been using but it doesn't seem to be able to get that final bit of matrix off. It looks like it's covered in a thin layer of dust and I'm worried that if I scratch it off, I will lose much of the detail. How do I remove the final layer and get that dark brown carbon color

  15. Can someone tell me what that rock that contains these plants is. Ash maybe? its a shale type material almost flint it feels like it was found in south central WV in Lincoln county it comes from the pennsylvanian era i believe.

    Pseudo Fossils or Trace Fossils

    Here goes... I picked these up within the last few weeks in the seasonal creek on my property in Elgin, TX. I’ve been looking at a ton of images and reading a lot of information on Google but look forward to your expertise and responses here in the forum. I tried to take decent pictures. pictures of possibly mold and cast.

    Pseudo fossil or carbon?

    What does this mean?

    When walking along titlow beach in WA (Eocene time period) and we find coal buried in the side of a cliff. Does this mean there was a plant there? bacteria? Tree bark? How did this get here? Also when walking along a Covington river far from the ocean in WA, we find a perfect stripe of coal on the side of a sedimentary rock wall. We can dig it out and it goes back very far. Does this mean that it was the bottom of a lake, ocean or forest where plenty of plants died and were covered in sediment? How did this coal even get here. Does this mean there might be fossils nearby?
  21. In the small country of Belgium there is a city called Ostend, which lies near the North Sea and thus has a harbour. To boost economy and oversea trade they build great stone walls so bigger ships can easily make their turn to get into the port. This walls are made of limestone rocks. Since I go looking for shark teeth a lot on the beach I wondered if there were any fossils to find there. And yess, I was lucky I never expected to find fossils from probably Carbon era in the rock walls of our harbour 1) Caninia cornucopiae, a solitary coral 2) leptaeana sp. 3) bryozoa,

    Penn Dixie oddity

    A visitor brought this item up front and I'm pulling the room to see if anyone has a definite ID on this piece. It's almost like coal, definitely seems like a carbonized something. Doesn't have the calcite to indicate plant, perhaps a fish coprolite? Thanks in advance.
