  1. Last weekend our club got together in a quarry. The leader said it was primarily for mineral collection and explained few if any fossils are found in this Devonian material. He was absolutely correct and I was equally disappointed! Our club hunts typically produce both minerals and fossils. But not this quarry. Here is what I scraped up: Not too impressive for 8 hours of exploration. I did manage to also find a trilobite cephalon that I donated to a member that found a pygidium. Anyways, the minerals, unlike the fossils were plentiful, varied
  2. I have found, what I believe to be a fossilised vertebra, and would like any advice on what species it could be and how old it may be. The item was found along a riverbank. It has a surprising weight for it's size - I can record the exact weight with electronic scales within the next 24 hours. The object appears to be of white bone with a red/iron marrow present through the centre. There are crystals in the recesses which sparkle when the light hits it and when it is wet. The top and bottom of the item are very smooth. The specimen has been washed with warm water and a t
  3. This rock is full of crystals that catch the light. It could've been a seashell that left this imprint, but I have to wonder if there is more than meets the eye. Any ideas? Please have a look..
  4. This rock is shaped like an oyster and the ring around it's mid section glitters with light.

    Is this an egg?

    Hi everyone, First, thank you very much for your help in identifying fossils! I just discovered this resource, and am grateful it exists. I found this unknown piece in a collections storage closet in the museum I work for. It was mixed in with other fossils and geology samples. Unfortunately, it was unlabeled, and so I do not know where or even when it was found. Again, thank you for your help, and I apologize for not having more information about the piece. If you need any other pictures, I would be happy to take them.
  6. I am visiting my wife’s brother and he found these in the desert in egypt many years ago. He was told they are fossilized camel dung. Anyone out there know what they are for reals? They are very dense. I hope the pix are ok. This is my first ever post from my phone. Adult human hand for scale.
  7. Hello everyone. I offer interesting gastropods with calcite crystals - perhaps someone will be interested I have a lot of them. Pseudomorphoses of calcite after gastropod shells of the genus Nerinea from Upper Jurassic limestones of the Oxfordian stage (Izyum Formation J2-3iz); 163,5 mln years. Ukraine, Donetsk region. I'm interested in everything - I invite you to private messages Have a nice day VID_20220122_135535.mp4 VID_20220122_135732.mp4

    Is this a shellfish fossil?

    I think I’ve posted before in the wrong area…hoping this is reaching y’all: found this in Bexar County San Antonio, Texas in my neighborhood which is new construction. In this area I’ve found a lot of petrified trees and other types of possible water creatures. I’ll attach those pics since I may have posted them in the wrong discussion area.. this looks like a shell of some sort and has beautiful little crystals in the ‘valleys’ of the sunburst pattern..

    Help with id please.

    This is full of crystals. Crinoid? Belemnite? In flint rock, shape is approx 10cm across. Jurassic Coast, UK. Thank you.
  10. Last weekend I went to Crystal Mountain, it is a retail store with attached cafe, animal feeding, small rollercoaster (for the kids), large indoor playground etc overall a pretty cool place to visit. Under the shop there is a museum, which is what this post is about - not your typical museum, a lot of things are unlabeled unfortunately, it's quite small (just 3 large rooms with corridors) all set up to look like you're deep underground in a cave. These photos are in no particular order I got my youngest (6 years old) to pose in front of some of the really big crystals to add a bit o

    I found this in creek in Warrenton MO. Can you identify? Amy
  12. Hello. I want to show you some examples from my collection. This is a Carboniferous wood. The preservation is not the best, but for me these samples are interesting for the presence of crystals of smoky and ordinary quartz on them. A sliver that has broken off from a larger fragment. There is more quartz than wood Perhaps a stem or stump - it is almost round in cross section. And thickly overgrown with crystals. Large flattened fragment; perhaps the first sliver was from it.
  13. So guys its very randomly im not collector or something like this - I buy through auction houses , and I buy a fossil last day because its was on low price and no one wanted to buy it. I tried to search any information to how recognize if its fake or real and value there is no information about it , so I will be happy to get more information about it. I buy it inexpensively. I know its above 100g didn't weight it still because it's shipping to me right now and he got lot of minerals crystal and the things that grow on it with the years There is the pictures , sorry for bad en

    Help please.

    Hi, I found this stone in...a charity shop. I really love it but I’m not sure what type of stone it is and the only one I can connect it to would be stromatolite. It has more unusual pattern though. Please could someone help me with identification. It has a clear quartz (I think) in the middle, it should be visible on the photo. Thanks
  15. Parkinsonia parkinsoni (ammonite) Jurassic, Upper inferior Oolite Bridport Dorset. UK 6.5" The first photos I took a few years ago did nothing for this unique specimen. I found it difficult capturing the details and still think they could be better. The ammonite has many chambers preserved in calcite that glow when backlit. Calcite crystals can be seen growing inside some of the empty chambers. Fossil, mineral, crystals, art, science, love Happy collecting.
  16. Trying to find out what kind of crystals he's our guy was told it's just a different type of Amber they look kind of like fools gold little half domes not sure
  17. Becky Benfer

    Help please?

    What are the little white bumps on top of this rock? Thanks for all help!
  18. I spotted this broken ammonite with Crystal's forming inside... I haven't seen this before does anyone know what the crystals could be.... Thanks....

    Calcite in the Peace river

    So i have heard stories of people finding crystals in shells on the peace river. I'm assuming it's yellow calcite but i could be wrong. Anyone hear the same or know some places?
  20. I am wondering if anybody else has ever come across a fossilized Seabiscuit that is showing some form of crystallization
  21. All the beauty you see against the blue sky is a story of time from the book of rocks, uplifting, cleaving, and eroding in wonderful ways. I searched and got this Socorro County geologic map. A rather immense amount of study involved in this document. Best at 175% zoom. If I lived there all the time I might come to understand it. https://geoinfo.nmt.edu/publications/openfile/downloads/200-299/238/ofr_238.pdf
  22. THIS ONE HAS SEXY FOSSILS- heck, I can even feel the cockles clamming-up over this one! Sooooo... did I get this right? (Not volcanic glass, and definitely from “ancient water”....right?). :-D
  23. A while ago I bought this tiny gault clay ammonite preserved in pyrite and in a few months of storage next to dessicant mineral these strange white crystals have grown. -pyrite disease?
  24. Hello from Cyprus, warm wishes for exciting finds to everyone! Here is a relatively bigger oyster than my usual finds, this one is complete and inside small crystals have formed, could be calcite not sure. Took advantage of the heavy rainfall and found it on muddy collapsing hills north of akrotiri area. I found half, and half a meter further I dug out the other half Perhaps you can better see the small crystals that formed all over inside both parts below Nearby I found also the following: found pos
