  1. Hello all, I hear that crinoids from a site known as "Corey's Bluff" of Crawfordsville, Indiana tend to be susceptible to pyrite decay. I don't know if this is a pattern but I've noticed a few crinoids from this location having black spots that I'm told are pyrite. Could I ask any members who've dealt with these crinoids or heard of this speak about their experiences? I noticed @Harry Pristis for one has some very nice crinoids from this site with such spots. I'd really appreciate any and all thoughts. Thank you.

    Recent Find

    Hi all. I was recently in Crawfordsville, hunting along Sugar Creek. While it's getting cold out, I've found that this is a great time to do it since the algae is gone and you can see what's under water! I only spent about forty minutes out there, but still came back with a lot of mortality plates, small crinoid pieces, jaspers, blood stones, and some other interesting things I can't identify yet. I found this piece here sticking out of a mud wall in Sugar Creek Nature Park (I made sure to see if collecting is allowed there--it is). Only about an inch was sticking out, so I was shocke

    Who do I contact?

    I was wondering who I would contact, aside from the property owner, if I had found a site that has something special. I would just like someone to look at a spot. I have never seen anything like it before. The area has never been cut or dug in any way as far as I can tell. There are slabs on the ground that have crinoid stalks in straight lines for 18-20 inches. There are stalks sticking out of the hillside. And not just a few. It is over 300 feet of creek bank with about a 2 foot layer of crinoid rich siltstone. I walked down the creek and in about 10 minutes I had filled all my pockets with

    Bloated crinoid stem

    What would be the reason this stalk is so bloated?

    Crawfordsville Crinoids

    First I want to say hi to everyone! Been picking up rocks and poking around in hillsides since I was a kid. Until recently I mostly had no idea what I was looking at.. but I’ve always been really good at finding goodies. With that, I’d like to share some things I’ve found in the last couple of weeks! There is a quarter on there somewhere! This is one of the smaller plates that have washed out. This is not Sugar Creek. The creek was high from the recent rain, but the last time I was on the other side, that shelf
  6. I am hoping to go to Crawfordsville IN this year, but I have heard that there are no places open to the public where you can hunt for fossils there, Is this true? and if so then I need some other ideas of where to go. PS. it doesn't really matter what kind of fossils are foound in the locations, but I do prefer trilobites, brachiopods, and criniods.
  7. Hello, I believe this to be a "holdfast" from the Crawfordsville Indiana crinoid locality. I am hoping that someone could help with identification of the particular species, and also if there is a scientific name for "holdfast." Thank you!
  8. Hello, I am hoping that someone can please help me identify the four species of crinoids on the attached plate? I have numbered them for reference and show close-ups. Thank you in advance!

    Help Id'ing Crawfordsville Crinoid

    Hello, I recently unpacked from an old collection this crinoid specimen from Crawfordsville Indiana. I would appreciate any help identifying species. The slab measures 13 x 14 cm, the detail is 7 x 6 cm. Thank you!
  10. I found this "septarian gastropod" (Platyceras sp. Mississippian, Edwardsville Formation, Crawfordsville, Indiana, USA) at the MAPS show this past weekend. When I saw it I couldn't say no. It looks like a snail cone overstuffed with gypsum. I've found fossils like this before in the Silurian shales of NY but they weren't this large or nice. Post similar mineral exploding fossils if you want. Thanks

    Crinoid IDs

    Today while driving around I saw a coin store that also sold fossils, so I thought that I would stop in and look around. Whenever I go into a little store I don’t just like to browse around without out purchasing something to help the small business owner. So I decided to purchase this little piece that was ID’d as Sarcocrinus granilineus from Crawfordsvile, Indiana. The piece appears to be original and nothing added, but I am not sure of the name. I am not a real crinoid collector, but I could not find this species on the internet. In addition, to me the 2 caylx look different to each other.
  12. I bought the attached crinoid from a dealer. It is from Crawfordsville, IN. I noticed that there is a smaller, darker crinoid stem to the left of the main crinoid, and I have an urge to prep out out, but I have almost no experience prepping. Is this something I should try? Do I run the risk of destroying the crinoid that is already exposed? Does it even look like there is another calyx buried in the matrix? Any suggestions appreciated.

    Curious if someone can I'd this crinoid

    I am hoping that someone can identify this Crinoid from crawfordsville for me. I have a book on crinoids from crawfordsville. It I don't really see anything matching mine. Thanks in advance
  14. I found this about 10 years ago while hunting crinoids in a river near Crawfordsville IN. I believe it to be from the Edwardsville formation which is late Mississippian. This spot is famous for it's wonderfully preserved and complete crinoids, but i don't think my mystery fossil has anything to do with them. The backside of the fossil is encrusted with crinoid stem fragments (as expected), so i know the age should be correct as most crinoids found there (late Mississippian). Now it looks to me like a part of a crab carpace, but the only crab material that i have found is macro and micro piece
