  1. Hello! I saw a very nice fossil fish with both halves up on auction. It's not raising too many red flags for me, but unfortunately, the seller doesn't have much information; but I did manage to glean all that I could, as well as some close-ups. They say their Aunt gave it to them, and she claimed to have collected it from Brazil. Unfortunately she also worked on cruise ships so it could be from anywhere, they pointed out. The matrix reminds me of the kemkem beds, but, I could be wrong. Here are some photos: and, for 10 points, I'd like you to give me the ID, and whether
  2. Hi All! I am new to fossil collecting and I recently bought a Carcharodontosaurus tooth from an online fossil store. I just want to double check with more experienced people to see if the tooth looks real and is as described by the seller. The description said it is from the Kem Kem deposits of Morocco, and has no repair or restoration. The tooth is one and 1/16 inches long. Thank you for your help!
  3. Hi all -- Found this claw for sale and am really interested in buying it. Seller acknowledges that exact species of theropod cannot be determined but that the fossil is from a good source in Kazakhstan. There do appear to be theropods from the region. Any obvious signs in these pictures that this is a fabrication? Just at a glance, it looks like the grain does follow the curve, which is the first thing I'd look for. Anything else that stands out? Relatedly, any signs that this is a composite toe (with bones from several individual dinosaurs put into one display)?
  4. Hi everyone, I got this rather nice looking Metacanthina recently as a present as well as some other trilobites (which have sadly turned out to be clear fabrications after some research, clear bubbles etc.) This one looked more convincing and I have gone over it with a magnifying glass but couldn't see any details various websites told me to look out for. Was wondering if someone with more experience could spot anything suspect! There is a crack along the matrix and on the rear of it's right eye some lens detail can be seen. Thanks thumbnail (1).jfif thumbnail
  5. Is this trilobite real? How often have we seen this question? Since folks are often asking I thought I'd toss in this obvious fake that I got in a bulk rock buy years ago. I'm no pro but I couldn't even find any real parts of this thing. I'll point out what I see and others can add their ideas Here is overall from top Here is closer shot of the front showing a few big problems. 1: the crack running around the side of the trilobite shows where the fake bug is separating from the base. They take a chunk of matrix, carve out a hole then glue on a molded fake. Then gl
  6. Hi all, Just looking for some advice. Does this matrix look legit? Or has this mosasaur tooth been placed? cheers
  7. Hello everybody So this fossil here bothers me for some time now because I'm still not sure what to make of it. I'm especially asking for the roots in the jaw and if they are a composite. Also this one tooth growing out of the root of the root looks odd to me. Is this a genuine fossil or are these roots / tooth put in the jaw? I'm used to these fake teeth put on jaws as a composite form Morocco but with this one I'm still not sure what am I looking at. On one side you can actually see the root in the jaw. Would something like this be fabricated
  8. hafa adai, I'd really like to buy one or two of those detailed trilobites with spines, appendages and all, either Russian or Moroccan. I see prices all over the map, and have observed a few really bad fakes. I'm sure that there are also a lot of really good fakes (hence the wild price differences). Can anyone recommend a checklist/things to look for and/or a reputable dealer (preferably one that doesn't charge mortgage-level prices)? I don't want to keep bothering folks with repeated queries of Is this one good?" "How about this one?" I've read a numbe
  9. These are two composited Spinosaurus teeth I found at a convention. Feel Free to post what you found or have.
  10. Hey guys, Here's another weird hadrosaur egg from the same chain of dealers on eBay who's authenticity I questioned previously.. Never seen a white one before! What do you think? Kind regards, Lauren
