    Fossil show trilobite #2

    Moroccan trilobite with no further info given. Fossil show find, looks real, but IDK?
  2. Hi y'all! I am going to be vending at FossilMania in Glen Rose this weekend! Who all is going? I want to make sure to see you there!
  3. Really beefed up my collection this year: Amber: Spent a while with my trusty loupe combing through Chiapas amber sold by the gram and found a very uncommon flower petal. The seller took a moment to offer up a page on his phone about the healing properties of amber, and he gave me a polite nod and laugh when I said I'm more interested in the scientific properties. I like dead stuff. Big Claw: Always wanted a thick beefy claw! Labeled as a Carch claw from Kem Kem but after reading some of @Troodon's posts it could be a Spino or generic theropod. Really love the shape
  4. I've waited two years through this pandemic to go again and I'm PUMPED. Is Friday 8/20 or Saturday 8/21 the better day to go, from your experience? Specifically going there for vertebrate and amber fossil purchases. (Talking about https://nj.show/ if that helps)

    Snake Vertebrae Column id

    Hello, I bought this snake vertebrae column from a conference building hosting a fossil and mineral show. This fossil didn't have a nametag telling the species and genus of the snake (most fossils at the show had a nametag). I forget where they said the snake verts were from (or if they said the location at all). I think they might have said Morocco. It's hard to scale because it's in a frame behind glass, but all the vertebrae are around 1 inch. I know it might be hard to identify without the head, so I may just be looking like an idiot expecting it's species to be identified. But if som
  6. The fossil show started yesterday. If you are into minerals, beads and junk lots of opportunity to have fun. However if you are into Fossils especially dinosaurs and shark, as expected, its been very disappointing. Lots of key dealers in these areas are a no show although a couple are around. This is the ballroom at the Tucson City Center Hotel. Empty and not one fossil to be seen. Only one small dealer with Green River teeth and another with Trilobites is the extent of fossils to be had. For the first time since the show moved to this venue parking was not an issue;

    Tucson Fossil Show News

    It appears that the Tucson fossil show will happen, but greatly reduced, with a scheduled start on April 8th. The Governor in Arizona also just dropped all Covid 9 restrictions but I'm not sure Tucson's mayor supports or will follow that call. From what I can see its not the best year to come to the show with lots of venues canceled and many dealers will be a no show. What to expect: Big changes were already expected this year with the Arizona Mineral and Fossil Show moving from the Tucson City Center Hotel (TCC) to the El Conquistador Golf and Tennis Resort 10 miles a

    Tucson Fossil Show News

    George F. Winters of the Association of Applied Paleontological Sciences (AAPS) just posted this on Facebook. The guide has been very useful to those attending the show. Tucson has yet to put any restrictions on the different fossil venues other than cancelling the Convention Center Gem and Mineral show . If I hear anything will post it. Travel restrictions may be the biggest impediment for dealers to participate and visitors to attend.

    NJ gem, mineral, and fossil show

    Hi all, I was wondering if anyone was going to the NJ gem, mineral, and fossil show... I’m considering going, but I wouldn’t be super interested if there aren’t many fossil dealers, I was also wondering if anyone knows how many dealers are going to be there. TIA!

    Tucson 2019 Pictures

    So I got back from Tucson a few days ago and thought I'd post some pictures for all to see! Pictures got downloaded out of order when I had to shrink the size to make them compatible for the forum. Sorry I can't ID everything for you guys like @Troodon did last year. Enjoy! Let's start with my favorite topic... eggs! French Eggs: A perfect and complete raptor nest from China: A very rare and complete elephant bird egg from Madagascar: Duck Egg:

    Hey y'all! Just a reminder that the 37th annual Fossilmania will be hosted again this year in Glen Rose during the weekend of October 25-27,2019. There will be many neat events including a guided trip to see the nearby dinosaur tracks at Dinosaur Valley State Park. Admission is free as always and hope to see ya'll there! The Dallas Paleontological Society is again running this event.
  14. UPDATED WITH PICTURES FROM THE SHOW For those of you in or near the Western Suburbs of Chicago this weekend, you should try and stop by the Kane County Fairgrounds located at 525 S. Randall Road in St. Charles, Illinois. The 43rd Chicagoland Gem, Mineral And Fossil Show will take place on Saturday (10a-6p) and Sunday (10a-5p). This is a really great and large show and I am sure you would find something that would interest you. For pics from last years show check out a post of mine from 5-26-18 titled CGMA (Chicago Gem–Mineral Association) 42nd Annual Show.
  15. Hi everyone!

    Tucson show questions

    I am thinking of attending a Tucson fossil show this year. Could someone please share recommendations as to which days/which shows would be the best to attend? (I can be there for 2 days max) My primary interests are reptiles, dinosaurs and sharks.
  18. Spent a few hours today at the annual London Rock and Mineral show. Most of the vendors specialize in minerals and jewellery, but a few had some fossils. I am not sure about posting images from the specific vendor tables without their permission, but the fossils were mostly what one would expect at shows like these: polished Moroccan orthocerids, Madagascaran ammonites, the usual trilobites, and the GR fish plates. Just a glance down one of the aisles: Although I have a digital copy of Trilobites of New York, I'm still a bibliophile of the first water, and sometim
  19. Well another Fossilmania show has come and gone. I have been attending these shows since it's inception in the early 80's. What was once a fossil only show/sale/trade venue has turned into "just whatever they display" type of show. Lots of "just plain rocks", gemstones jewelry and yes fossils, most of which I have handled many times. There were a few recognizable friends there behind those, select few fossil only tables, but it is so different this year than from years gone by. No longer friends getting together having a great time camping fireside chats swapping lies
  20. Has anyone ever been to the Florida Fossil Hunters show in Orlando? I'm going to be in Orlando that weekend finishing up a work conference and thought I may check it out. Any dinosaur material vendors? Does anyone have any pictures from the show from years past?

    @RJB, @Ptychodus04, Check out the grand prize at Fossil Fest this year! https://www.austinpaleo.org/fest.html
  22. Detail of the show logistics can be found in the following topic Dealers are slowly getting into town and its a madhouse looking at the dealers setting up. The show officially starts Thursday but some are already open in the Ramada and Tucson Hotel that I visited today. Here are some pictures. Tucson Hotel City Center -
  23. I'm wondering if any FF members are going to the ESCONI fossil show this weekend? It's at the DuPage fairgrounds and more information can be found on their webpage if you're looking at going. We are going to try to get there right at open(10am) Saturday as we have some other stuff going on in the afternoon, and it's a bit of a drive for us. For those of you with kids, we went last year, and the kids had a great time. They had a little area set up with common fossils for the kids to start a collection. They could also buy some other common fossils and minerals for cheap. I'm not sure if it will

    Tucson Fossil Show 2018

    I'm starting to plan a trip to the Tucson Fossil Show in February. (This will be my first time there.) I've only got a couple of days and I know there are dozens of separate shows, so I want to plan my time to visit the best of them. It seems like the 22nd Street Show should be a good one to attend, what other ones should I think about attending? What Fossil Forum members will be exhibiting there? I'd like to try to at least stop by and say hello, maybe buy something, too.
  25. Has anyone ever been to the Greater Detroit Mineral, Gem, and Fossil Show (coming up in mid-October)? If so, can you comment on the number of vendors and diversity and quality of fossils available for sale?
