  7. Petrified Mushroom, Horn Coral, Or...?

    I found this on the shore of a lake. At first I thought it was a petrified mushroom. It looks very similar to a mushroom. But, someone mentioned it could possibly be a horn coral. I really have no fossil knowledge so I'm just interested in what this possibly could be. It's very cool looking.
  8. Horn Coral from Giles County

    From the album Silurian Fossils - Giles County Tennessee

    Stegerhynchus from the Silurian Period 443 million to 416 million years ago. The Rugosa, also called the Tetracoralla, are an extinct order of coral that were abundant in Silurian
  9. Very Large Crinoid Stems

    I revisited a creek Tennessee that I had mildly glossed over in the past. With more purpose this time I searched and found some of the most beautiful and large fossils I have encountered yet. As a crinoid enthusiast I was overjoyed, and even more exciting was all of the OTHER marine fossils I found, expanding my appreciation of all kinds of fossilized beauty. here are a few of my favorite examples and I may post more as I continue to photograph my finds.
  10. I'd heard this location had blastoids, which I've never seen before, so last Friday me and a friend headed down there. We arrived around 930 or so and were immediately stuck by the steepness of the cut "we have to go up this?". We got up near the top where the really productive layer is and immediately started finding blastoids, archimedes, and small horn corals. Most blastoids were in the 1/2" range, I found one archimedes that is around 6" in a slab. Buddy found one blastoid that is probably over 1". The horn corals are generally small. Lots of crinoid bits and pieces also. We took a break for lunch and when we returned we had company. On the west side there was now a man and his son. We hit the east side but it wasn't very productive. Dropped back down and the man & son were gone, but now there was an older lady with 3 young boys. We crossed over and said hi. They were looking for fossils on the very bottom layer, which is hard limestone and not very productive. The boys got very excited when they saw my rock pick and boots. I gave them some of the duplicates of everything I had picked up earlier. I told them the good stuff was up there. Things evolved and me and my buddy wound up taking the two older boys up the road cut to hunt. The boys were very polite, calling us "sir" the whole time. We spent around 30 minutes up high, with them finding several examples on their own. I ended up giving them my bottle of water because they were dried out. I was identifying what they were finding or debunking psuedofossils (lots of those when you're 10/13) the whole time. They eventually asked me if I was a scientist. Eventually grandma yelled up that it was time to go, so we had to get down. I think all the grown-ups were much more concerned about it than the kids. The 13 year old scrabbled down 3 steep 4' shelves in no time. But I slowed down the 10 yeard old, I was afraid he was going to fall. I ended up getting below him and lifting him down each shelf. He actually told me I was really nice. Overall a fun trip, if a bit short. It was made more enjoyable by getting to help stir an interest in science in some youngsters.
  11. Hoping For Fossil Id

    A friend sent me these pics from Val Verde County, Texas near the Edwards Limestone formation, about 17 miles south of the intersection of Highway 277 and Highway 55. Approximately 6-7 inches long and approximately 1.5 inches diameter at the base although oval not round. It is carbonate material, and looks like it was calcified. Any help on identification would be helpful. 1) 2) 3) 4)
  12. mikeymig started a thread a few weeks back that got me looking through my collection of bryozoan encrustings (does someone really have such a collection? I have a cabinet drawer devoted to them.) I posted several specimens. Looking further I came across an Ordivician speciman I'd had for several years and had never gotten around to cleaning, so I did. The further along I got the more fired up I got. Upon finishing I knew I had something special. There appears to be 2 different bryozoans on the horn coral. The process that took place for this to occur must have been amazing. [
  13. Horn Coral

  14. My wife and I have been exploring our local Mississippian Warsaw formation. These are some of our less common finds from the Warsaw Formation on the Meramac River from the last two weekends.

  15. Recently a hill of dirt and rock has been pushed in front of the drive to keep water and washed out materials from gushing down the driveway and into the street. This was the first time in at least several years that this had been done. My first visit to the site produced probably 30 horn corals and brachiopods strewn just across the drive all the way down to the street, pushed there by the flooding caused by rainfall. Obviously, no one had been there in quite a while. The floor of the quarry has become “terraced” due to erosion. The terraces are at most 3 inches tall and may run up to 30-40 ft along the curved contour of the floor. Last month I visited for the 2nd time this year…. with the recent drought followed by several gulley-washer storms within a week’s time I had a feeling a lot of material could have washed out. I was correct. In 3 visits (Th-S-Su) I ended up with 65 lbs of fossils. Around half being brachiopods…. Herbertella, Platystrophia, and Lepidocyclus. (about half of the brachs found) Along with some decent horn corals and cephalopods. Often times a wide range of specimens would be clustered in a small area, such as in the photo below. What all do you see in the photo? Or, there might be a cluster of the same kinds. The brachs in the next pictures, were found clustered in each of their own 1 square foot areas. As if someone set them there. Just sitting right on top of the ground rather than stuck in the rock. At this time I don't intend to visit this site again until next spring, although I may have second thoughts if a huge storm rumbles through in the Fall.
  16. In 2011 a veteran rockhound (no longer in shape to go on field trips) in the Dayton Gem and Mineral club mentioned this no-name Ordivician site where he’d had a lot of success in the past finding fossils. I’ve visited the site about 5-6 times now and have never been disappointed. It has a constant erosion of horn corals, brachiopods, cephalopods, bryozoans. As I heard it, at least 20 years ago an entrepreneur bought a hill/hillside plot of land just within the Dayton, OH city limits, less than 2 miles east of downtown. Just on the edge of a commercial business area. (looking west) (looking north from the driveway) He immediately turned into a small limestone quarry. Within 10 years he ended his business and the quarry has seen little or no activity except for an occasional illegal dumping. The “Y” shaped quarry is entered by walking up an eroded blacktop driveway. The East “wall” is about 150 yards away, the Southeast “wall” about 75 yards, and the South “wall” about 175 yards. An apartment complex can be found within 50 yards beyond the SE and S “walls”. The far “walls’” base being maybe 8-10 feet higher than where the drive meets the quarry floor. The West side of the quarry is lined with trees sitting atop a 3-6 ft tall hill. The old business district begins just on the other side of the hill. To be continued....
  17. I was out cleaning windows at one of my clients properties when I stumbled across this beast! Let first explain that the property has large limestone (I think?) rocks going around the edge of the property, these where placed there in the late 50's or early 60's. I climb over these rocks to get to some of the windows and it shames me to admit that I never noticed it before . But anyway, there I was cleaning windows when something got my attention...FOSSILS! So, I went to the owner and asked if I could remove a few, they said "sure, get rid of the junk!" I took what I could safely transport and said I would be back for the rest tomorrow and that was today. So, here are a few pics of my find, I will post more later, wifey needs to eat and I am getting a look as we speak . I used a yard stick for scale.
