    Is this Favosite?

    Picked this up in creek where I find turtle shell fossils, Cretaceous Eagle Ford and QAL mix, thought that's what this was until I washed mud off, then thought it was cement, looks like it and sounds like glass, but it has hexagon shapes all through it. Thinking shape is coincidental and it's Favosites?
  2. Lise found the first blastoid of the year at Arkona, during last weeks spectacular warm spell. She also found the first Petoskey stone, though there was very little of Lake Huron’s shoreline free of snow and ice. I, however, found a stromatoporoid. An interesting piece, from a chunk of armour stone, quarried from somewhere or other. A spectacular ice nugget was also found.

    Another Coral Specimen?

    Hi all. I spotted this in a load of 1 inch gravel I purchased from a landscaping company in Cincinnati, Ohio. My first thought was that it is a fossilized mushroom, but I'm no expert in identifying mushrooms or fossils. After reading through some of the other posts in this forum, I've learned they are extremely rare and are usually identified as coral. I now suspect that I have an eroded solitary rugose 'horn' coral based on the "A Mushroom??" topic also in the Fossil ID forum. The appearance is similar and it was found in the same'ish area, but I didn't want to just sit on it without at

    Please Help Identify

    Hello, I am an active crazy lace agate & fossil hunter who has many specimens that I hope can be identified. Please help identify my precious findings so I can rest assure at what they really are. Found in Coldwater, MS in a Gully I visit often.
  5. Brookelynnoddart

    Coldwater, MS fossils

    I have discovered these in Coldwater, MS in a nearby gully I frequently go to for these amazing finds. If Anyone has some great insight into what they are for sure, I would greatly appreciate knowing how much or if they are worth anything ?

    More unknown Devonian/WNY fossils

    Hello again, I have some more photographs of fossil specimens that I am unsure about or looking to confirm. Appreciate the help. 1. Devonian, Genesee Formation from around Dansville, NY. Agonatite? Gastropod? 2. Also Devonian, Onondaga Formation I believe, Erie Co.. I am not great at trace classification ID beyond that it looks to be a trace burrow 3. Devonian Moscow Fm., Erie Co. The little fossils on the left side of image? Can't find any sources on these. Neat trilobite eye in the rock. 4. Rugose Coral, Devonian Livingston

    Fossil coral

    Hello I found this coral in a marine quaternary deposit I’ve also found living ones in the sea this was found in Jeddah Saudi Arabia I would love to know this species mid possible thank you soo much
  8. mr fossil


    I found this bizarre thing in a quaternary deposit in Jeddah Saudi Arabia I have found a couple of these fossils and also found not fossil ones in the sea floor yet I can’t quite figure out what this is thank you
  9. Found in the Lee Creek spoils pile. Is this some sort of coral or a cast of a burrow? The item is tubular and was hollow at one point and filled with something that looks like obsidian or flint. Or maybe it was the other way around and the "filling" was covered by the material surrounding it? Maybe something geologic and not even a fossil?
  10. Hello, As a follow up to my previous post, I wanted to see if anyone can help me Identify some of the things I found or confirm my suspicions. all material was found in Wardensville, part of the needmore formation in the Lost River quarry. #1 lets start with the biggest stumper, I have absolutely no Idea what this thing is or even if it is a fossil. my best guess is a possible trilobite feeler, but even then I am not familiar enough with their anatomy to make that call. failing that, some sort of soft bodied invertebrate perhaps? #2
  11. This past Sunday, I had about 2 hours to spare, and wanted to look for fossils. I obviously couldn’t go far, so I decided to see whether I might have any luck fossil hunting along the Iowa River right in Iowa City. The exposure there is from the Coralville Member of the Cedar Valley Formation, which is mostly Devonian limestone and Dolomite. The faunal diversity in this strata is not great - some solitary and colonial corals, a smattering of brachiopods and bryozoans, and a few small crinoidal columnals. I had time to check out two locations very near downtown Iowa City, and both within two mi

    ID please... My guess is coral.

    Hi, I'd be grateful for a ID on this fossil, found today at Worbarrow Bay on the Isle of Purbeck, UK. I can't see anything similar online but my best guess would be coral. Would be very grateful for any deeper insight!
  13. Hello everyone. I have come across these in my collection and could someone gives me info at all. Possibly just the common name and maybe a rough time period.

    rock with 2 nice corals in it

    Hi everyone this is Matt again. Today in the creek I found a rock with 1 nice horn coral in it and another coral on the right that I am not sure what it is ? Here is a photo :
  15. Hi all, Harwich in Essex, U.K. is mostly famous for The Mayflower but it does have a small beach on which sharks teeth can be found. My wife and kids were lucky to find some but I was not so lucky. I did however find this. Could this possibly be an inclusion of a piece of coral in a flint nodule? If so is there any way to determine species and a possible age? Thanks in advance!
  16. Hi everyone, this is Matt again. Today I found a fossil with a nice favosites coral in it and a lot of bryozoans also in it. Here are a few photos :

    fossil ID (WI)

    Hey all! I took my little brother out fossil hunting on the lakeshore, I myself am no expert but it's been a lot of fun- we found a number of crinoid and brachiopod fossils and some cool rocks besides. Theres a couple that stumped us though, I've been googling references but nothing looks similar to me. It looked to me like some kind of coral, the second one might just be a rock with some holes in it, but they appear in a fairly regular pattern that intrigued me. Any input is appreciated!

    Colorado Coral?

  21. Found along the shores of the North Channel at Little Current, Manitoulin Island. Slightly domed. Knobby outside, crystalline (calcite?) inside.

    A few gravel finds...

    These are all from my gravel drive. Please, educate this novice! Let me add (I'm new here so bear with): I found this bad boy in my driveway right after I moved here I had no idea what I'd found. But, after that, I was hooked!!!

    Found in yard outside Seattle

    I found this under a few inches of dirt in my yard. I've lived here since 2004 so surprised to find it. This novice is curious to figure out what it is, how common this is to find, possible age... I'm about 5 miles from the Puget Sound outside Seattle and at 500 ft above sea level so guessing it was brought to where I found it. Can almost make out tiny shells in some of the holes. It's quite heavy and slightly larger than a football. Thanks community!
