Group of sub-millimeter grains - please take a look
CornelDumitru posted a topic in Fossil IDHello! Please take a look at this group of sub-millimeter grains and let me know if they belong with fossils. Micro gastropods ? Eggs ? Sand ? They are firmly attached inside a superficial fracture of this (presumed hornfels) rock. I brushed the rock with water and soap, washed it in vinegar, polished some parts of it - but the grains are still there. I suspect they are silicified, "glued" to the rock. All the black grains look kind of the same, including shape; the white grains also show a kinship between them, maybe. The black and the white grains seem to be all related
professional associations and societies.
hadrosauridae posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionI'd like to get some opinions about the benefits of joining any of the paleo societies or groups that are around. More specifically, is there a benefit for a lay-person in joining? I understand that these offer networking opportunities for the professional, but would there be a benefit for ME as an enthusiast?

From the album: Sharks and fishThe shark relative is genus of eugenodontia holocephalid from the Carboniferous-Pennsylvanian age Anna shale formation, Carbondale group, found in different Illinois coal mines. I dont know(yet)which mine these were found in. This unidentified species is of the "vorax-serratus- crenulatus-heinrichi" or "E. heinrichi group", with the teeth being more of a standard triangular shape, as opposed to being thinner and pointed at a forward angle as in the "E. minor" group http://www.thefossilforum.com/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=50175
pile of shells?
pambosk posted a topic in Fossil IDArea found, Ay Athanasios, Sfalagiotissa Area, 10km north from Limassol shore its 5cm diameter shell-shape 2cm thick. on top there is a dent, when wet a red shell-like shape appears. in photo 1 it is slightly visible on the left. bottom i can see at least 2 shell casts, which means there were shells under and there are shells on top.

All over that area, I found many sponges, shells and other reef fossils, that I will

Hunting in the Bond Formation
matt2396 posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsLet me preface this report by saying that I would never usually post something with this much text, however, I see this as a sort of introduction to other members of this site. Most of you are probably unfamiliar with me, so I will provide a little bit of backstory. Before I get stated, I would like to just thank everyone involved with TheFossilForum, be they moderators or just enthusiasts, for kick starting what I have come to think of as my new hobby/passion. I should say, if you are looking for any rare or eye-popping specimens, you have come to the wrong place. Aside from that, please enjo
Hill Country Fossil Club - Texas
Piedras_de_Tejas posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionHello there, my name is Cameron and i'm starting this topic to have an open page for the flow of ideas and information about the possible formation of a Hill Country Fossil Club for San Antonio, Austin, and the surrounding areas . This idea has been proposed before on the forums, but it didn't work out, so i'm doing my best to pull everyone together to form some sort of club. It could be anything from an organized monthly meetup for group fossil hunting trips, guest speakers, etc. to a simple email list for members to invite a couple tag-alongs on their upcoming trips. However it takes shape,
