  9. Little clam?

    Went out to a spot on the Nansemond River in Suffolk, VA, and it started to rain right after. We arrived, so we had to leave. Some iron concretions and this little thing were all I found. It looks like a clam, but it feels rougher than the other clams I’ve found so far. It was inside of a larger rock. I believe the area is mid-late Pleistocene. It’s about 2 cm wide.
  10. Mollusk Molds

    From the album Calvert Cliffs

    Molds from the Choptank Formation. Member unknown. Virginia Miocene
  11. Crystal/Fossil ID

    A friend of mine found this recently in the area of Belton, Texas in the undivided early Cretaceous. He sent me the pic and asked if I knew what kind of crystal it was. I didn’t know so I asked him if I could post it here for him. I’m not so curious about the fossil clam as the type of crystal it is. If you need more pics it may take a while, because I think he is out of town for a while. @ynot It does not look like calcite really, but I suppose it could be. It just looks harder than that. I forgot to ask him to do a hardness scratch test. Let me know if you have any ideas. Kim
  12. Giant clam fossil?

    This fossil was found at Luoping, Guizhou. Is it a giant clam fossil?
  13. saltwater clam

    I think this is plagiostoma a marine bivalve from the mid-cretaceous but I'm not 100 percent sure. it has a width of 4.5 inches and has multiple hidden arch lines that have been removed from abuse taken from the natural environment.
  14. Maybe clam steinkern

    Is this possibly a small clam steinkern or just an ordinary concretion? Or maybe a tiny, ancient UFO? 4.5 cm wide x 3.5 cm deep x 2 cm thick. Some of the openings go in a ways, pic 2, left side goes in about a 1/4 inch, same with left opening in pic 3. Pic 2 just looks like some 1950's movie UFO.
  15. Newbie with another fossil I hope

    Found this while hunt native American artifacts. It looks like a shell of some kind. Half I'm sure is chart. Please identify. Thanks railguy
  16. Hi, This is an interesting beach find. It's about 1 1/2" x 1 1/2", Found on Honeymoon Beach, Florida USA. It appears to me a baby Clam Bivalve embedded in a Snail Gastropod Limestone Cast. The clam is about a half of inch at it's widest point and is crystallized. I'm not sure if it is a fossilized shell I'm looking at or a cast of the shell? I've found many snail casts, but not one with another shell in it. Anybody ever see one like this? Thanks for looking!
  17. Clam that is heavy

    I recently received a fossilized clam that is shut tight. The clam seems heavier than I think it should be. Does it hurt the 'value' of the fossil if I ply it open? I saw online how some clams are crystallized.
  18. Notocorbula ephamilla Tate, 1885

    Common shell collected from Fossil Beach, Mornington, Victoria. Also known as Corbula ephamilla.
  19. Clam fossil?

    Lima (Plagiostoma) sp : an oxfordian bivalve from "les Vaches Noires" Cliffs - collected during winter 2017
  22. Clam?

    I found this as a kid in an old surface mine (I was told) in the upper peninsula of Michigan near lake Gogebic. I found it in a large pile of loose sand. It looks and feels like sandstone, but maybe harder. It has what looks like a "foot" on the bottom and a hinge in back. I would appreciate any speculation on what it is. Just a funny shaped rock? Thanks.
  23. UPDATE: Thanks to the help of @Fossildude19, @Al Dente and @abyssunder, (plus others), I'm currently listing this as a Buchiola sp., a bivalve from the upper Hamilton. This little fella is about 8mm across. I have yet to find another example at the site. It was found in the pyrite beds, so it's a float from somewhere, but I couldn't tell you where. It's from Penn Dixie, it's Middle Devonian, Hamilton Fm. That's what I know. Absolutely beautiful little piece. But I have no idea what it is.
  24. Modern or fossil clam?

    I went out to the North Sulfur River (NSR) yesterday and went down a particular feeder creek. Along the creek I kept finding clam shells that looked modern, but not like any fresh water clam that I’ve ever seen before. I have never seen this category of preservation of clams in the NSR or elsewhere in Texas for that matter. The formation out there is Ozan of the Cretaceous. If they are Cretaceous they are quite remarkably well preserved. There are 2 varieties of clams as best I can tell. There is the smaller one that is smooth and then the larger that have a wavy or ruffled shell. Both have fairly heavy, thick shells that are a beautiful soft pink/baige pearly color. Here are the smaller smooth ones. One up close. Here are the ones with wavy shells. I also found 2 modern fresh water clam shells that are common in Texas . Their shells are pretty thin and light. Anyway, can anyone tell me if the first 2 kinds are even fresh water? If so I have never seen a fresh water clam like them. I think they are Cretaceous, but I have never seen such preservation in Texas. Any thoughts or comments would be appreciated.
