    Agatized horn coral?

    I found this in gravel. I think it's pretty cool. Would love to know what it is!

    Finds in western Pennsylvania

    I am going to post some pictures of my finds in Western Pa. Would love to see what others of you have found here as well!
  3. Hello! Found this tiny piece in a mix of coral rocks/ gravel debris near Ft Myers Florida. Corals included diploria, meandrina, siderastrea. This is very small, about a quartersize, and appears to have been surrounded by a shell or edge at some point. All thoughts appreciated

    Clean coral fossils

    Hello, I'm new. Can someone tell me how to preserve and clean my coral fossils? Vinegar, hot water and soap, none of that works. How do I keep the black off of them? And should they be kept outside and watered regularly with the hose? Any information would help. I have been collecting fossils for 21 years now and just realized I have a wonderful hobby. I love rocks. Thank you so much.
  5. Happy new year to all members! Today I would like to present some of my finds of tabulate corals. I am grateful if anyone can help to identify the family, genus or species. First I will present corals from the Kalvsjøen formation, late Ordovician in Hadeland, Norway. I think rock 3-8 have the same species. Rock 1 and 2 are most puzzling so I present those first. I see several kinds of corals in them and not only corals. Can you also see the nautiloid? Next, some rocks which I believe have the same kind of coral: Rock
  6. Collected from Atrasado Formation (Pennsylvanian carbonate shelf formation) Best photos I could manage: And, for fun, some real fossils from the same venue: Bryzoans: And this I thought was a horn coral But now I'm less sure. Under the loupe, it appears to be more shelly. I could not get a decent photograph to show it, but the large end (what isn't embedded in the rock) is open and seems to have triangular structures along it. A serrated rim, if you will.

    Help needed to ID corals

    I would like to start present some of my coral finds, or what I believe are corals. The first are from Tyrifjord lake area in Norway, I am uncertain of the formation, but I believe it is Ordovician of age. Although one paleontologist told me that the area has Silurian sandstones of Early Silurian age, a geological map I found also includes some Ordovician outcrops. These I presume are favosite corals. Is it possible ID their order, genus or species? Their sizes are about 10-12 cm long. I am not sure these are sandstones or limestones. First rock: Second rock:
  8. I have found them within Miocene reefal limestones, can you give me any information about their species ? Thank you.

    Lost river trip 08/29/2021

    Hi all! Went on an expedition to Wardensville this weekend to try out some new equipment, decided to go to the Lost river quarry and try my hand at shale splitting. The drive was nice and uneventful. but eventually I made it to the spot. The scree was more treacherous than I expected, has to use my new rockhammer as a pick of sorts to help anchor myself. this was my very first time to this locality, doing anything like this for that matter, so I had no idea what I would find if anything. after scrambling up to the rock wall and looking over the texture my eyes were met with the fir

    A few gravel finds...

    Y'all please understand, I'm new to this! These all came from the gravel road leading to my house in S. LA. What are they?

  13. Hi guys I decided to rescue and acquire a new unlabelled specimen. It appears to be a rugose solitary coral that can possibly come from the Devonian of south western Ontario. Can anyone give me any leads on the species level??
  14. Hi guys so today I came across a new shop that popped up in downtown Hamilton, Ontario. Anyway long story short I bought what appears to be Silurian coral fossil that originated somewhere on the Niagara Escarpment in Ontario or the State of New York. This fossil came from a peculiar museum that liquidated its collections in Niagara of Ontario and closed but the fossil didnt come with a label. Can anyone help me pin down what it is? I have never encountered a fossil like this on the Niagara Escarpment of Hamilton, Ontario. Also this was being sold along with o

    Upper Devonian Rugosa ID

    Hello guys I collected this Rugosa coral from the Upper Devonian of Charouine, located in the Ougarta ranges, Algeria. I wonder if someone can help ID the genus and species properly! I appreciate your efforts.
  16. This all started over a year ago. I was selected as Member of the Month and a couple of TFF members from Texas invited me down to the big state to collect. I primarily collect in my home region, the northeast, but I've taken fossil forays to New Mexico, Kentucky, and Germany and was willing to consider a trip to Texas and the opportunity to visit some classic fossil sites and collect fossils that are outside my usual focus. I began planning this about ten months ago, contacted potential fossil collecting partners and did my own research on fossil sites, geology, and the types of fossils I woul
  17. I found a few what I believe are corals on along the Atlantic Ocean in Connacht, Ireland. I would appreciate any identification as I am new to collecting fossils, thank you.

    Osha Canyon Formation

    Visiting the Osha Canyon Formation in the Jemez Mountains, New Mexico. Upper part of the formation. The massive sandstone is the Sandia Formation. Underneath is the Pennsylvanian Osha Canyon Formation. FInds: Crinoid stem segments, a rugose coral, a couple of echinoderm plates, and a worm burrow cast. Whole bed of brachiopods: Composita brachiopods? I was shown this site by a semi-professional geologist who calls it The Nursery because there are huge numbers of unusually sm

    A few Fossils from recently

    Hello everyone, thanks for letting me join the site! I'm an amateur fossil hunter from Toronto who has made a few expeditions in the past months. I've found a few fossils of interest that I'd like some help identifying. Below are links to photos of the fossils in question on my iNaturalist page, along with some additional details. Thanks all in advance! The following were all found along the Don River in Toronto. 1. https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/68570190 2. https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/68573964 3. https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/685701
  21. Taking advantage of my time spent home, I finally got a couple of glass display cases to showcase fossil specimens from my collection. Finding ones that were affordable and blended with the style of our home, was challenge, and I took my time choosing. Despite a bit of criticism I receive from some of my fossil collecting friends, I am a generalist collector who doesn't specialize in anything. Having said that, my collection does feature some rare faunas; Devonian and Cretaceous bivalves, Lower and Middle Devonian brachiopods and gastropods, Cretaceous vertebrates, etc. The focus is largely on

    Please Help Identify these fossils

    I have lived on this property in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee for over 35 years. I have been noticing these fossils while working in a shade garden on the property. I believe they are some form of fossilized coral. I tried to find help in the Audubon Society Field Guide and by searching on line, but did not find anything that completely matched my samples. I have selected several pieces that I hope my help identify the fossils. The pieces I have found are usually 1-1 1/2" inches in diameter, and somewhat spherical. Many of the colonies are shaped like a 5 pointed star and appear in somewhat
  23. I propose to show us your Cenozoic corals. It is not necessary that it are identified although it would be better. What is necessary is that it are dated. Ok? Come on, I'll start. Cyathoseris castroi (Mallada, 1887) Lutetian South Pyrenean basin
  24. I found this in a sand pit near Kalkaska Michigan as a kid. It was in the vally wall around lake Skegamog. Next to it were a number of sand stones containing shell fossils. I don't know if it matters, but the pit wall I dug into was about 75 feet below the undisturbed grade. The stone I believe to be a sponge is approximately nine inches tall and weighs approximately 9.5 pounds. The chamber's are not uniform in size so I doubt it's being coral. The fact that there were no igneous rocks present makes me doubt pumice. I apologize that I could put up more pictures and close ups, but there was a

    Back to the Ohio Valley

    Hi Everyone, I took a 2 week trip to the Ohio Valley, arriving back in New York about a week ago. It was primarily a family visit since many of my relatives now reside in the Elizabethtown, KY area. However, the Ohio Valley, as some of you know, is very rich in Paleozoic fossils and I just had to make a few stops on my way there and back as well as between family engagements. I will try to share enough to give you all a gist of it: It was a long day's drive from the northern suburbs of New York City to Richmond, Indiana where I spent the first night. The next day I was headed down State R
