  1. Hi Found this large rock In middle Georgia. It has Holes in it that dont look natural to me but I could possibly be wrong. Just wondering if anyone has seen anything like this. Sorry the photos arent better. Where it was found a lot of artifacts are found because had Indians living here for 12,000 Years.
  2. From the very moment we wrapped up at that Conasauga Formation fossil hunt at the spot I'd never heard of before, I was itching to get back there. I guess that's what going for years without hunting half-billion year old bugs does to you. Well, this past Sunday I had my opportunity to get another bug hunt in. It's a good thing I brought my water boots with me, because the spot was quite a bit wetter than the previous time I had come, with some really large puddles at the foot of the hillside I'd get to work in. After a good while of splitting, I had myself

    Found on Tybee Island

    First time posting….so I apologize if I’m not following correct formatting. Not sure if this is anything, but was found on Tybee Island. Can anyone help with identifying it? Thanks!
  4. Found in Dahlonega, Georgia. Original origin (if different) unknown. Before I realized it was a fossil, I had aggressively scrubbed the stone with a denture brush in hopes of cleaning off the deep dirt stains. It worked, but I'm not sure if it damaged it at all. It doesn't look noticeably damaged, if it is, but I figured I'd bring it up. This rock is *most likely?* limestone & quartz but I'm not terribly confident in that answer. Any help GREATLY appreciated!! The fossil appears to be a mix of star shaped and column shaped indents, with what appear to be shells as well. There m

    Fossil ID

    Found on the beach this evening and curious as to what it is.
  7. I was wondering if anyone had a good list on different species found in the Conasauga Formation? I've found a few references to trilobites, but I was especially curious about non-trilobite species such as brachiopods, sponges, non-trilobite arhtropods, etc.

    Help identify this

    Grandkids found this and we have no idea what it is. Dogs dug it up
  9. If you have ever looked through my post history on this forum over the years, you'd know that the Cambrian age Conasauga Formation has been one of my favorite formations to hunt, being the best formation to hunt for trilobites in the state of Georgia that I know of. Unfortunately for those of us that came to enjoy the abundance of trilobites the formation provided, the main site in Murray county that had become widely known by the time I had visited it a few times had attracted some...shall we say...less than intelligent guests to the area, resulting in the site becoming fenced off.

    Help with possible egg

    Found this in the Olcmulgee River shed after lots of rain from up North so I'm in Middle Georgia it's possible it could have come down from further north. Background in last picture is a standard index card for true size comparison

    Fish Fossil?

    Hi, I think I found another fossil. You guys are awesome with the information on my last one. And, was hoping for help with this possible fish fossil. If you need more images, please don't hesitate to let me know! Thank you, J

  13. Recently just got back from a trip on Tybee Island! During this trip I went out looking for shark teeth several times a day, and even did a tour with Sundial Charters! Overall in 6 days I found over 150 shark teeth and countless other fossils! I'll be posting them on here! Here's the coolest tooth I found actually on Tybee, I believe it's a Great Hammerhead.

    Mystery Bone

    I found what appears to be some sort of bone while on Shark Tooth Island off the in the Bull River/Savannah River in Georgia. Does anyone have any insight into what this may come from? Horse, or some sort of cetacean?

    Trilobite sites other than Tibbs Bridge in NW GA

    Fairly new to fossil hunting but have become obsessed as of late. Have heard about trilobites in NW GA so did some searching and decided to give it a go. Went up to the Chatsworth area a few days ago and really the only spot I know is Tibbs Bridge, but I was disheartened to see 5 big red signs indicating it is illegal to collect fossils there. After looking at some FF discussions I understand there is a homeowner who kept contacting the police and they eventually put up signs. I ended up just walking around down there and pocketing a few trilobites I found on the ground, but I was pretty disap
  17. Does anyone know any good- well honestly any accessible fossil formations in northern Georgia? Looking to set up a fossil hunting trip (haven't been able too because of school) and I have a few spots in mind. Though, I was wondering if anybody had tips or locations. Thanks- Logan

  19. I had the opportunity to visit another Silurian site in the northern Georgia/southern Tennessee area. This is now the third such site I've visited, but the first in the Rockwood Formation as opposed to the Red Mountain Formation. As far as I can tell there's very little different between the two lithologically and paleontologically, with the Rockwood and Red Mountain occupying pretty much the same stratigraphic position. The difference seems to be that the TGS prefers to use the term "Rockwood" to describe it's Niagaran Silurian system and the GGS and AGS prefer the term "Red Mountain", mostly

    Found in GA shipping channel

    Found this in the shipping channel between SC and GA. Looks like a fossil of some sort to me, but I am not an expert. Hoping someone can tell me if this is something of importance or just a really interesting shaped rock. Any input is appreciated!
  21. I had the opportunity to collect in the Red Mountain Formation recently, and considering the seeming lack of accessible sites in the area (RIP Tibb's Bridge) I thought it'd be good to show some of my finds here and say there is some stuff out there. At first I thought the site was in the Mississippian Lavender or Floyd Shales, which was my initial reason for venturing out to it as I didn't have the opportunity to collect in marine Mississippian units closer to home. I can say now with almost 100% certainty it's actually within the Red Mountain Formation, an early Silurian unit that is also a p
  22. May be a bit of an odd question, but I was wondering what horizons or layers are the most fossiliferous in the Conasauga Formation. I've heard about the Tibbs Bridge site (RIP), but that site exposed a calcareous, light-colored shale from the upper part of the Conasauga. From what I read online it seems that most of the trilobite beds are located in the upper shale layers of the formation, but I was wondering if anyone else knew if the other parts of the formation had anything?

    Georgia Cambrian Mystery Trilobite

    When splitting some extra matrix from the Tibbs Bridge Road exposure of the Middle Cambrian Conasauga Formation I came across this trilobite cephalon imprint. It does not seem to match any of the common trilobites found at the site and I could not find a similar example in the various trip reports other members have posted about past visits to the site. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Fossil Road Trip - Georgia, Texas

    Both my brother and I celebrated graduations this year - my brother graduated from college and I graduated from law school. In celebration of our graduations, we decided to take a 13-day road trip to see some of the United States after I had taken the bar exam but before I began work. Our journey ultimately took us through Atlanta, New Orleans, Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Oklahoma City, St. Louis, Dayton and Pittsburgh, before returning home. Our days were jam-packed, with us often not arriving at a hotel until 9/10pm, but along the way we did find some time to make a few quick stops to coll

    Cambrian Shady Dolomite east of Cartersville

    So I've been reading some bulletins recently looking for a new place to hit when I came across this interesting section in bulletin 54 (https://epd.georgia.gov/document/publication/b-54-geology-and-mineral-resources-paleozoic-area-northwest-georgia-1948/download): I've heard of the Archeocyathus from the Georgia fossils website and that they're Georgia's oldest fossils coming in at ~516 MYO. What I didn't hear about, however, was this: Trilobites? More importantly, Wanneria??? For reference, here's the bug in question:
