  1. I had just recently finished polishing a piece of petrified wood I found, and I just read a topic that included a polished pyritized Yorkshire cannonball ammonite, which got me thinking about all the types of fossils that can be polished. I did a search on the forum for a "Show us your" polished fossils thread and couldn't find any so decided to start one as I'm interested to see the diversity of fossils that have been polished. So... Show us your Polished Fossils!

    Horn Coral?

    Hey everyone!! I sent pictures of my fossil, that I found on a Devon beach a few years back, to a museum in the UK to see if they could help me identify what it was! I personally thought it looked like a claw! And my sister thought a mussel! Turns out it was neither! I have attached the lovley little reply I received from the gentleman at the museum so you all can read too! It’s a Horn Coral! Which is a solitary coral, that became extinct many MANY years ago! Pre-Jurassic Period! I'm posting here in the hopes that anyone else might have any more info

    What is this thing?

    Found this in a stream in Hocking Hills, Ohio. Guessing it’s some coral or something…??

    Coral or urchin fossil maybe?

    Hi everyone, found this fossil in limestone area in United Arab Emirates which was formed 66-74 mya, according to local geology museum. Not sure what it could be but looks very pretty for sure This fossil was found on the ground in sandy areas where bivalves and small shells are found quite abundantly.

    Coral or Fossil?

    Found near Sandy Hook NJ. Last photos are under a microscope. Thoughts?
  6. Hi! Me and @Tales From the Shale are actively thinking of going on a fossil hunting trip in Alton Illinois (right by St. Louis, Missouri) this week to analyze the Mississippian period St. Louis limestone and I'm wondering if anyone else has gone down there? https://www.mindat.org/feature-4232679.html We're specifically looking for fossils of the Meramac group and though we have a quarry or two, we're thinking of also checking out any road cuts in the area. I'm wondering before we go on the fossil hunt (likely this Saturday), could anyone offer some info on any good road
  7. Ive got some business in Coralville, Iowa so I did a walk along the river whilst I had some time to kill. Fossil corals everywhere which is no surprise as that’s where the name comes from. Here’s two. The walk along the Iowa River was really peaceful. I didn’t see a soul.

    Glen Dean Formation 2022

    Found a real nice exposure of the Glen Dean Formation in central Kentucky recently. Oh man did it not dissapoint. So here is some of the best crinoid material I have ever found. A calyx with partial arms, pictured with some stems and ossicles. A single ossicle, with crinoid spins, that are still sharp. Both of which are as common as gravel here. A small peculiarcalyx and crinoid cup. This massive gorgeous Pentremites sp. I found this one on my first trip, so unfortunately no scale but I will upload more of it later. More large blasto
  9. These were from a creek bed with some great exposure. Abundant Ammonite impressions and oysters and some great layered bedd deposits. These pieces have me scratching my head. One looks like it could be a coral or crinoid base? Some appear to have bark impressions and look like stem pieces. The curved one is also interesting. Seems to uniform for just a rock. I’ll post them individually Thanks! patrick
  10. Part two…looks like stems …Maybe, palm, cycad or fern? I guess another possibility is bone.. ?

    This coral is the subject of QUIZ here on The Fossil Forum. There are some unusual features of this specimen and a second specimen involved in the QUIZ. If you wish to know more about this coral (the quiz is not as easy as you may think) and see other images, you can go to this thread: http://www.thefossil...584#entry217584

  12. I found more of this rock, found at Anyer beach, Indonesia

    Found this one in Hidalgo County NM and the area is from the Maastrichtian epoch. Any help is appreciated.

    Port Huron, Michigan trip

    I drive 8 hours with a friend to a location he remembers from his childhood as yielding a lot. Oh boy it did. 100% worth the drive. Lake Huron, among the agates, pyrite, yooperlite, has some extraordinary Devonian fossils. All fossils were collected from the beach of his family’s property except for the fenestelid bryozoan, which was found at a gas station on the way there. please enjoy this collection of gastropods, petoskey stones, various tabulate corals, crinoids, stromatoporoids, bivalves, Brachiopods, tenteculites, horn corals, an unidentified agatized fossil in jasper matrix

    Coral? Barnacle? Fossil?

    Any help identifying this is appreciated. Pretty sure it’s a fossil of coral, barnacle or some other similar sea life but I really don’t know. Like my other posts, comes out of the Florida estate fossil collection that I purchased at auction. Once again thank you all in advance for any help.
  16. ChrisSarahRox

    Hoping this one brings up my average.

    This one was found near a small village called Palayas in Hidalgo County NM and from my research the areas age is from the Maastrichtian era. It is likely just a rock ( maybe calcite?) But worth the keep.

    Is this common?

    Found near one of my favorite trails right on the edge of our spread in Grant County New Mexico. I'm hoping you find it as neat as I do.

    coral or stone?

    Found washed out from a river bank in Northern Alberta.

    What could it be besides horn coral?

    Been trying to figure out what these guys might be. I can see the resemblance to an internal cast to a rugose coral but they show shells that do not look like the horn corals here and they are much larger and at least one specimen I have seems to be bent and they seem to stay more parallel sided than the horn corals. The last image is a cross section one that seems to show some chambers.
