  1. 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
  2. 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!
  4. This is estimated at 15 million years, miocene era. A large amount of fossils found in these fossil beds.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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/
  10. I have recently been researching several local road cuts that expose fossils, and am interested in obtaining written permission/ a permit from Caltrans to surface collect there. I would like to know if this is possible for an amateur collector, and if anyone has personal experience obtaining collecting permission from government agencies. I would also appreciate any recommendations for obtaining this permission/ information to give when applying. Thank you!

    Fossilized vertebrae

    Hello All, I am new to the forum. I have a few things I would like to post I have found near where I live. These vertebrae I actually found in a house flip a friend of mine did so I am not sure the original location found. I am told they are most likely whale but the weight makes it arguable. The larger of the two weighs about 40lbs. What do you guys think?

    Tooth for id

    Hello! Help please identify tooth. Height ~ 4 mm. Age - Middle Miocene. Location - Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance!
  13. KylerThrift

    Please help identifying!

    Does anyone know what these items might be? Thanks the last 3 pictures are all the same item just different angles
  14. Found on beach in North Florida. About 5x1.5 millimeters. Shiny bits on the front and back. Not sure what it is?
  15. Kaiya

    Help identifying this please

    Found on a north Florida beach. About 15 x 15 millimeters.
  16. Anybody know what these are? Biggest in the image is about 35 x 25 mm and smallest is about 20 x 20 mm. Found on north Florida beach.
  17. Would love this community’s input on what I found on a trip to Ladonia Fossil Park two weekends ago - I’m trying to determine what - if anything - I found. Trying to find a good fossil guide to aid in searches - any recommendations appreciated!
  18. I found this in Ohio Brush Creek thinking it was horn coral. Its not. Any ideas? Part of a syphuncle maybe?

    Byne's "Disease"

    I just learned recently about Byne's "Disease" from cases I saw a collection. I was sent an article by a fossil curator I've been working during my internship at Harvard's Museum of Comparative Zoology that I'll link in this post. Why have I never heard of this before?! It's a white powder that looks like mold on a fossil but its not. It occurs in specimens that are made of calcium carbonate and is caused by an acidic environment. it's not very common but when it does occur it can destroy a specimen if left untreated.

    Madison County Trip W/ Forum Friends

    Hi all, yesterday I met up with @Nautiloid and @Dean Ruocco in Madison County to collect some bugs at DSR and another site nearby. After exchanging some gifts we got to work collecting, you can see some of @Nautiloid’s finds on his post here… Dean and I got to work creating benches in a promising area whilst @Nautiloid checked out an area at the site I had mentioned to him prior to the trip. Straight off the bat we were all finding some decent bugs, here were the only Greenops I found yesterday. I always like
  21. So I’ve been doing a lot of fossil hunting lately, and as such, went back to the dry dig site yesterday, hoping to get at least one of my current 2 white whales: A complete Meg over 3”, or a rhino, dire wolf, smilodon, or Dugong tooth. Neither of these things happened, but I did walk away with some great stuff, so without further ado: Starting off with Megs as always: 7 complete Megs. The one in the centre I’m convinced is a Chub - it’s got cusps. Small ones, but they’re definitely there. Here are the better frags I found, including one almost complete, white
  22. Anyone know much about locality 34? Not sure if anyone has made expeditions there or how one can access the area. Any input is greatly appreciated!
  23. Hey everyone, I have been looking for more Theropod dinosaur teeth, or good marine/reptile teeth. I have the following things i can give back - 5'35 inch Ashepoo Megalodon tooth with rare bite marks. - 4'13 inch Scaldicetus sp. Tooth from Chile - 3'85 inch Megalodon tooth from Belgium. - 1'84 jnch Blue colored 'hubell' meg from May River. For any interest, please private message me.
