  1. Hey everyone, I need your help! I recently bought a mystery box with some ambers and i got this one with...something inside. So I took my microscope and took some photos (don't remember the magnification but i think 80-100x) and...still didn't know what it could be! Help please? Age of the amber: 49 mya (Middle Eocene) Origin: Lithuania (sorry for eventual bad photos, my microscope isn't that good)
  2. I need some help. From my new pit location. Eocene Castle Hayne Formation, Comfort Member. A partial Marine Mammal? tooth with root. Archeocete? Sirinean? PPinned? @Boesse @Al Dente @siteseer
  3. I have been too busy to get out fossil hunting when I want but there are a few recent times I've been able to get out. I wanted to try and post a small trip report about them. On October 31 I had the opportunity to visit the W.M. Browning Cretaceous Fossil Park in Prentiss County, Mississippi. Most people from the area are probably familiar with this old site but I'm a new resident to this part of the South so I wanted to give it a try. It's Late Campanian Demopolis Formation. It was a little cold and rainy but warm enough for someone used to North Dakota. Apparently th

    Cane River Eocene Fossil

    I collected this specimen at an Eocene Cane River Formation site in Louisiana during a recent trip. It kind of resembles a cephalopod gladius but I can't find a particularly close match. I did find a ton of Belosaepia guards at the site so the environment seems suitable at least. It's about 5 mm in length.
  5. I was recently given this amazing fossil from an old man before he passed away. While he couldn’t remember exactly where it was found, he did tell me a general area in Wyoming that is known for Eocene fossils. Any help with identification is greatly appreciated!
  6. Hello everyone!)) Need help of paleontologists and paleoichthyologists with identification of eocene shark teeth from Russia. I'm not professional, just a fan and rooky, so I choose possible species options for every tooth, according to books and scientific publications which I have. Hope I make right something at least. Be glad and thankful if somebody will help me figure it out)).

    North Florida Fun!

    My wife and I returned from a great trip to north Florida about a week and a half ago, but I finally have time to post a trip report now that our Easter visitors (our kids) have left and headed back to their homes. Fair warning, if you are looking for some great tale of finds on the Peace River, this is not the post for you! Probably one of the few posts on the Forum from a trip to Florida that does NOT include the Peace –. This was not solely a fossil trip, but rather a sight-seeing trip with some fossils stops included, I try to include as many stops as possible but it is always a delica
  11. I wanted to start a little info dump for new collectors in Vancouver! It is usually met with quite the shock when local residents of this huge city learn that fossils lay within a few blocks of their area! This site is most likely Eocene to Oligocene in age. It contains a surprising diversity of well preserved plants but oddly no insects or vertebrate material has ever been described at the site... The site has shown records of hurricanes, forest fires, volcanic events and even a tsunami! It is interesting to note a mix of tropical plant life with more cool weathered types are found

    Claiborne Amber (Cockfield Fm., 41.3-38 Ma)

    From the album: Fossil Amber from Around the World

    1.4g translucent specimen measuring (mm) 16x15x10; one side presents an unbroken exterior, with slight remnants of sand, clay, and lignitic matrix. This material was recovered from the Malvern Clay Pits, east of Malvern, Arkansas. FTIR spectrum comparison of Claiborne amber to modern Shorea sp. resin points to the Dipterocarpaceae as a probable source for this middle Eocene-aged amber.

    Claiborne Amber (Cockfield Fm., 41.3-38 Ma)

    From the album: Fossil Amber from Around the World

    4.1g rough specimen measuring (mm) 25x18x15. This is a section of a run, with successive layers grading from translucent to opaque; portions of the sand, clay, and lignitic matrix coats the exterior as depicted. This material was recovered from the Malvern Clay Pits, east of Malvern, Arkansas. FTIR spectrum comparison of Claiborne amber to modern Shorea sp. resin points to the Dipterocarpaceae as a probable source for this middle Eocene-aged amber.

    Claiborne Amber (Cockfield Fm., 41.3-38 Ma)

    From the album: Fossil Amber from Around the World

    8.0g prepared rough specimen displaying a partially polished face, measuring (mm) 50x22x14; this piece is a transverse section, and displays numerous layers or flow lines with sequences of micro bubbles as well as sediments. This material was recovered from the Malvern Clay Pits, east of Malvern, Arkansas. FTIR spectrum comparison of Claiborne amber to modern Shorea sp. resin points to the Dipterocarpaceae as a probable source for this middle Eocene-aged amber.

  15. Found this tooth/spike/claw/antler in Van Zandt county Texas. It was found amongst petrified wood similar in color. The piece is of similar feel and weight as petrified wood. The petrified wood context is of the Wilcox Group (Eocene). Attached are pictures for identification. Anyone have any idea what this is?
  16. From the album: Fossil Amber from Around the World

    3.0g of amber from the 9.2g lot depicted in the associated entry. This amber is middle to late Eocene in age (about 41.3-33.9 Ma), and comes from coal seams along the boundary of the upper Tukwila/lower Renton Formations. It is found in association with Pinus sp. and Metasequoia occidentalis remains, which were the most probable sources of the amber; association with Metasequoia sp. is even more prevalent among the amber from the Blakeburn Mine (i.e., amber from the Allenby Fm. near Coalmont), as Metasequoia imprints are especially abundant at that site.

    Canadian Amber (Allenby Fm., 52.5-48 Ma)

    From the album: Fossil Amber from Around the World

    3.0g of amber, from the same lot in the two associated entries. This mid to late-Ypresian material comes from an old site near the abandoned mining town of Blakeburn, which site and its gangue piles are now technically owned by a coal mining company (although the existing legal claim of the individual who collected this amber is being overruled by the company). The amber is found primarily in association with Metasequoia sp. remains/imprints, however Pinus and Pseudolarix (among others) remains are also found in a lesser quantity at the site.

  18. I have found it within Eocene clastic and carbonate rocks. The rock is some clastic rock with high carbonate context. I am thinking maybe the white fossils in the rock are some kind of nummulites. What do you think ?
  19. I need some help identifying this plant fossil. It appears to be a fruit of some sort, as it has a prominent reddish stain that surrounds the entire fossil. This specimen was found in the upper strata of the Raging River Formation in King County, Washington state. While the Raging River Formation is primarily noted as a marine fossil facies, the report by J.D. Vine, (1969), lists "woody fragments of trees and leaves were found associated with the marine fossils, but specific species could not be identified." This specimen was found at site #648 as listed in the above report.

  23. I was lucky enough to be invited on a hunt to a southeastern North Carolina quarry for yesterday. This quarry contains exposures of the Eocene Castle Hayne formation and the Cretaceous PeeDee formation. The quarry had not been hunted at all since late April / early may, so with all of the rain we have had over the summer and from the recent Hurricane, I wa pumped to get in there. It was a small group of people, only 8 of us, but all experienced quarry hunters. After arriving and filling out all the necessary paperwork we headed to the first area around 8:30. This area was a small section in an
  24. Hello all Two pieces from a quick walkabout on the Tankerton, Whitstable foreshore today, London Clay formation, both found loose on foreshore around exposed clay formations. The first I was hoping might be a turtle shell fragment as there is apparent porosity and the shape of the fragment is somewhat indicative. At first I thought the lace pattern on top was also fossil material but then realized it's a non-fossil marine deposit. The second is very strange and to be honest I'm in strong doubt that it's a fossil remain as I've not seen anything like it - at first

    Green River fm.

    Hello, Next summer I am going to visit Northamerica for my first time, and would really like to visit a Green River commercial quarry; my problems (doubts) are: Which one is the better quarry?, referring to abundance and variety. I live in Spain, and I guess the fossils are too heavy to carry on a plane, so I thought to send them by mail, will I have problems with customs?. In that case, can someone from the quarry provide me a certificate that these fossils have been legally collected? Which messaging company should I use?, preferably a careful one.
