  1. Fossils are our passion, and a passion is not just a hobby. It is a kind of lifeline that gives you the opportunity to be who you are allowed to be. I let my passion run its course and it doesn't just stop with collecting. I also look at how I can use fossils practically. So I have now sawn a piece (collotia oxypticha, DeDeux-Sèvres France) which I use as a bookend. Beautiful and useful at the same time. At the same time I started to make a photo frame with fossils incorporated in it. Are there more people who use fossils practically and let their passion resound in the world aroun
  2. Hello It's my pleasure to be a member of your lovely forum I hope someone would help me to know if those shark tooth are real fossils or not, gonna buy them in Cairo, Egypt
  3. This is a small sampling of some of the more interesting things to come out of the Potter Farm Formation in Alpena, Michigan via one bucket of screen washed muck. Crinoid pieces: Cystoid segments: Trilobite fragments: A platyceras: Blastoids: Loads of brachiopods: And tentaculites: Not pictured are the over abundance of bryozoans.

    Shark tooth ID

    Hello! Help please to identify tooth. I think this tooth is from family Triakidae and probably Triakis or Iago. But I dont know for sure... Length - 2 mm. Paleogene, Eocene (Ypresian or Lutetian). Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance!
  5. Hello all Fossilcollectors! I went fossil hunting in Late-Cretaceous sediments of Limburg (NL). I found some belemnite rostra (Belemnoidea, family Belemnitida, Belemnitellidae) species Belemnitella cf. minor II (Christensen, 1995), Belemnella (pachybelemnella) sumensis/cimbrica, Belemnella (pachybelemnella) obtusa (Schulz, 1979) and (possible) Belemnitella junior (Nowak, 1913). These 'squid-pens' are made of calcite and formed a important part of the animals internal skeleton. Many of them are broken, but also some (almost) complete ones. One is embedded in chalk (with glaucon
  6. This Weekend was very busy,saturday afternoon the tide was low and allow a good hunt on the Cap blanc nez with a very grey weather ,heavy rain sometimes a a Mantelliceras picteti from the Cenomanian was here And a Turrilites costatus Big pieces of Calcite time to see the Gault clay Anice pyrite Hoplite from the Albian on the sand small samples to ID inside the clay time to go back on the way :) Today morning with the sun but high tide And before living
  7. Hello to everybody! I'm kinda new here, but before I start I must say I really love this forum! It has really great vibes and you instantly can tell that this is a good and friendly community! So, I am ziggycardon, I live in Belgium, close to the border of the Netherlands and when we start speaking geologically, I live on the same cretaceous sediments as where the first major Mosasaurus discoveries where done! Unfortunatly I have never been on a fossil hunt myself and everything currently in my collection was bought or given to me. But I hope to change that soon, as I am dyi
  8. I have decided to start a thread showing pieces from my collection. I usually post in the "mailbox score" thread, but have found that my additions get lost in the volume of postings in the thread. So my collection will be in my own thread.
  9. Just came back from Beaumaris Fossil beach and I have a load of fossils, I’d appreciate getting them identified I know that a few are sea urchins, and the shell but I’m just not sure about the other pieces Note: unfortunately I forgot to add a ruler/item for scale
  10. Has anyone in this group even been up this far north in Alberta? I have an idea of location and will report back after my journey.

    Will's summer 2021

    Hi Guys, I’ve been doing a bit of hunting this summer and thought some of you might like to see what I have found , this trip report is mostly going to focus on finds as in the moment, I wasn’t great at taking photos now I’m not very organised so we aren’t doing this in a chronological order, I’m just going to describe each site separately the bulk of my hunting occurred on the Isle of Wight, so it is only natural that we start there, I’m going to start with one of the less interesting sites, whale chine (an image from the internet) , I stopped here on the way to the
  12. Bad news for french fossils collectors from North of France.......and others https://france3-regions.francetvinfo.fr/normandie/calvados/bientot-une-interdiction-de-ramasser-des-fossiles-a-villers-sur-mer-2583356.html?fbclid=IwAR0Q7LG9iJ2wHzASlPRAj8n9bU5OYG8zfbKOmi43bpQ0NlOVsgeAeLtyKcE
  13. Hi all, This may seem like a weird topic but I wanted to ask here because this keeps happening occasionally and I am unsure of what the cause behind it is and whether this could be of any concern. When going through my fossil collection, whether it be putting new specimens up for display, looking through my collection, dusting pieces off, moving them, etc. I occasionally see small translucent white bugs slowly scuttling across the surface of them, I believe that these are springtails as that seems like the only plausible organism to be found there that also has that appearance and bo

    New member with a jellyfish?

    Has anyone ever heard of someone finding a solicified jellyfish fossil with a bunch of babies in The Matrix with the adult?
  15. So went hunting a few times this weekend - and I found myself a spot! It produced, and produced, and produced some more, and may still have some left to give, though I probably won’t be going back for a couple weeks. Surprisingly, no Megs. Couple tiny frags. Shark teeth in general were relatively scarce here, but that’s okay - I was hunting for mammal stuff anyway. So to start off with my best find - an absolutely stunning, complete, most of the roots still there, Tapir tooth: Following that up with a spectacled bear molar cap: An opossum jaw with 4
  16. I finally completed the reorder of my collection of fossils and minerals. It is a wooden hexagonal display cabinet of several wood/glass shelf; in the pictures attached I only show some of them. I 3D printed more than 20 custom drawer compartments for the smallest specimens. I decided to go for a modular design, so I can adapt every compartment to the specimen. As printing material, I used a "wood PLA" filament 3D printed with 1 mm nozzle on the Alfawise U20 3D printer. LINK I finally added a strip LED inside the cabinet door and powered it via a USB power-b
  17. I am going to split this open and take pictures of what is found. This is from a fossil bed in Clarkia, ID. These are roughly 15 million years old. This area is has a very different climate than what these fossil plants can survive in. You can also find garnets in this area too, but not in the fossil beds. My husband worked hard on getting this out for me to work on, but since the sun was going down quickly I didn't have enough time to complete the splitting there.

    Successful day at GMR

    spent 3-4 hours and got a decent haul!
  19. This is estimated at 15 million years, miocene era. A large amount of fossils found in these fossil beds.
  20. Hi everyone, it’s been a while since I have posted on here. Next summer my family is moving to the Fort Collins area and I was wondering if there were any sites or natural areas to hunt/collect in. I read on fossilspot.com that the south shore of Horsetooth Reservoir (west of Fort Collins) contains Late Cretaceous Fox Hills formation containing “Inoceramus, Ostrea, etc.”. I have already planned to get down to Florissant Fossil Quarry (despite the extremely expensive one hour access fee). My mom has friends with ranches in the central part of the state that have extensive land with mountain ATV
  21. Curious if anyone has thoughts on these. We were out rock hounding for agates and such over in the valley and found these so took some pictures.
  22. Hi found these while digging foundations. Good quality solid clay base down to at least 2 meters deep. We came across a hard object within the soft clay. This is what we pulled out. My hand for scale, the big one looks like a bone to me? Though I have no idea tbh.

    Swatara Gap PS Starfish

    I've been collecting at the actual Swatara Gap site since I was a kid and over the years collected most of the trilobites and starfish that were found there. However, there are some starfish that I would like to verify. I've tried literature searches and know there is a 1989 paper on them , but I cannot find it on-line. Hopefully, one of you guys can help with identifying these specimens. Any help would be appreciated/
