  1. I found more of this rock, found at Anyer beach, Indonesia
  2. I’ve just bought this book with some birthday vouchers I was given early in the year. The book is Strata, William Smiths Geological Maps. The book is absolutely gorgeous. A real coffee table book giving the history of William Smiths career, his production of the first geological maps and of course his fossil collecting that went with it. Here is a link to the book on Amazon. https://www.amazon.co.uk/STRATA-William-Smiths-Geological-Maps/dp/0500252475/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?crid=1AYFHUQ9YTN8H&keywords=strata+book&qid=1664115356&sprefix=strata+

    4-H Geology ID question

    Hello Everyone. My grandaughter is in 4-H Geology and we found this specimen in Southwest Kansas. We have no idea what it is or how to label it for her exhibit box. Any help you could give us would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  4. I have been on a few geology forums recently looking to post some pictures for ID help. Some of the other posters on those sites received replies with snark and sarcasm. To be fair my experience is just a small snapshot im sure, but I really haven't seen that on this site. Everyone seems helpful and informative so far. Anyone know of a similar geology site that encourages learning? Thank you!
  5. Hey fossil people... more specifically hey Arizona fossil people. I'm wondering if any of you have run across fossilized horn coral in this state? If you have, tell me about it. I'd love to see examples of what you've found. I"ve found lots of brachiopods and other marine life in Arizona but this is the first time I've found horn coral. The idea that Arizona used to be underwater is fascinating to me. Theyre not the prettiest specimens... but i found them and they're mine! Lol. For those wondering, I found these near Payson Arizona. Same place I've found byrozoans, brachiopods, and

    Fossil or Xenolith?

    Look I found a thing! Usually when I see a rock embedded in another rock I think fossil... however IF this is a fossil I have no idea what it would be. So at this point im thinking maybe its another Xenolith. What are your thoughts? For anyone interested, this was found near Vancouver Canadia.

    Mushroom shape?

    Picked up at a yard sale in Nor Cal. It has the appearance of base of horn or a mushroom. What do you think?
  8. @lizardite I thought that we should move this interesting reminiscing about northern California geology and paleontology out of the member introduction section so that more people might see it. Continuation from: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/122442-greetings-from-carlsbad/&tab=comments#comment-1339414 Here is one of my interesting finds from the Bay Area. The most recent palm fossil found in Northern California. I could not convince UC Berkeley to keep it.
  9. Does anyone have any ideas on what transformations an organism undergoes as it becomes an inclusion? Why do they often become translucent or transparent? Why do they often turn black/brown? Do they polymerize? How do some inclusions retain a lifelike or unaltered appearance? Why do exposed sections of inclusions have a crystalline appearance? I'm surprised that I can't find any meaningful answers to these questions.
  10. Almost there! Over 270 pages of full color fossils from the Pennsylvanian of North Texas The long-awaited sequel to the Pennsylvanian Fossils of North Texas (2003) Available Q4 2015 in hardcopy, digital and e-reader formats.

    Is this just geology?

    I'm assuming this is just geology, but I wanted to make sure. I found it in a seasonal creek bed in south central Missouri, USA. It measures 3 inches by two inches and is a little whiter than the image indicates. Any help is appreciated. Doug
  12. I'm just gonna start dumping pictures here of cool stuff I've found. All of this stuff is from the outdoors; I mean sure, I have some cool store-bought stuff like snowflake obsidian but that's not what I'm interested in sharing here. Some of this stuff I have in the other thread I started, but I'll post other stuff too. Nice lil' Hag Stone "The Brain" uhm....."Concretions" (Still working on an ID on these) Really old Coal (I think the te
  13. Please find attached pictures of an oddly shaped and structured object. It was found while removing a deep rooted tree. This was in Royse City in Hunt County. After having no luck identifying it, somebody suggested this forum for guidance. Thank you for your review. Joe
  14. What kind of layers are these in East Tennessee very fine paper thin black stone, lots of natural right angles and mixed egg shapes and ovals seem to be found in them. 20 feet Above these layers are thicker gray limestone with corals and crinoids Does anyone know the story of these layers
  15. hi, i am new to this forum. I bought these 2 trilobite fossils from a shop in los angeles. It was an antiques shop. I am just curious if someone can tell me if these ar genuine or fakes? thank you

    Google Timelapse

    It let you view any place on the earth how it has changed in 37 years via time-lapse animation. One thing I particular like about is the soil erosion. https://earthengine.google.com/timelapse/

    Fossil Shell or Odd Mineral?

    Are these fossil shells with odd mineralization or a mineral of some sort?
