    Tooth or Rock?

    Found in a freshwater spring in Florida. I was skeptical at first but after looking at it for a while I’m curious.
  2. Hello! I have a question. Recently I have started to purchase fossils from closed locations and countries that are now closed for fossil collecting. Can anyone tell me any good closed sites that I can purchase fossils from? I barely know any. I only know about these closed sites / countries. Chile Brazil Lee Creek Mine Bone Valley? I'm not sure if it is closed. Hopefully someone can tell me some good closed sites. Age and country / area does not matter Thanks Cheers - Adriano

    Need help with potential fossil ID

    Hi all, I was in Italy on the Amalfi coast this past week, and stumbled across what I think may be a fossilized tooth. It looked cool so that’s why I picked it up. I could be wrong and it may be nothing. I’m hoping someone here can help me.

    Possible fossils

    Found these on Amelia Island. Not sure if they are even fossils. Any help?
  6. 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
  7. Here by my new Spinosaurus Aegypticus tooth from Taouz, Morocco. It is 4 1/2 inches. The colors are less common than your regular Moroccon Spinosaurus teeth. It has 0 restoration done to the tooth, and the quality is very high. Which I find special about this one. Noticed some slight patho and serrations on this tooth too? Could someone explain the patho perhaps.

    Any ideas?

    I found it around 100 yards from the beach in a forest in mid Wales I’m not really sure what it is but it would be ingesting to know if anyone has any ideas

    Fossil Sites Nearby

    Hello all! I'm new to the forum (this is my first post) and I was hoping for some help! I'm going to try to set aside some time this summer to do some fossil hunting and was looking for some new localities/sites to hunt at. I am in western Maryland, and I'm wondering if anyone knows of any cool localities nearby (up to 2 hrs away). I have Jasper Burns' book (though it is slightly outdated) and have been to a few of these sites already. Any direction or help you can send would be greatly appreciated! Feel free to either reply on this thread or to PM me (I understand wanting to be se

  19. Paleorunner

    Does anyone know what it is?

    I don't know if it's some kind of solitary coral, or what it could be. The seller only attaches this photo, and in his sales comment he says that he does not know what it is, or where it comes from. Can someone recognize it? I'm waiting for a response from the seller to know the size.

    Lithuanian fossils, what are they?

    Hello everyone! After looking at some findings, I spotted some stones, which look the very same. Stones, which usually should be glacial erratics! All three stones look the same. Does that mean, they came from the same place? I'd have some hope, it could be some mushrooms of some time, since they all have the very exact same built, but I think, that's not even possible? After a farmer went over the field, plowing, I found a broken stone, from which there peeped out a long, round fossil. It does not really look like the rugosa I constantly find. Does somebody know, wh
  24. Hello everyone, I am a new member and i do not understand much about fossil. Although i am very pationate about them. I found this fossil myself and i would like to remove the matrix attached to the fossil. I tried vinegar and a tooth brush. It kinda worked on the top of the fossil where you can see the tiniest spirals. That method cosumed about 2 days of work and only uncovered that tiny piece of the fossil. I am also concerned that the acid frrom the vinegarr will partially destrroy the fossil. What is the best way to do this? Best Regards, Bruno
