  1. Hello, I am a student at Centralia Community College working on an identification / analysis of fossils from the Clarkia Formation. I was wondering if anyone here has worked on this formation? If so, do you have any advice on how to properly set the sediment they are in to limit breakage/crumbling? Thank you! ~ AQM

    Cambrian Sponge?

    I apologize that this is just one photo taken by my phone, but that is all I have to use at the moment. This fossil (about 6 cm long) is from the middle Cambrian Spence Shale of Oneida Narrows, Idaho. I am leaning towards a sponge? Does anyone have any idea what this is? Thanks for the help!

    Fossil ID Fossil or not

    I am new here so I am sorry if I am doing anything wrong. I was in an area with sea fossils it's a bit of an unknown area and I found this. it is fairly brittle and fell apart even after I gently picked it up and I am not sure what to make of it I am hoping somebody can tell me if it is a fossil or just a rock extra photos
  4. Sorry if this post is in the wrong place or porly laid out, this is my first post. I was at the fossil beds in Clarkia recently and was wondering if anyone here had any tips on how to preserve them. The guy there said just wrap them in newspaper and let them sit for 6 weeks in a cool dry place. Is that right? I had also heared that there was a way to remove the leaf from the matrix. Can anyone provide any info on that? Thanks for all your responses.
  5. Tammy and I left South Florida yesterday and arrived in Spokane, WA after a short stopover in Las Vegas. Didn't win any money in any of the hundreds of slot machines in the Las Vegas airport but then it is significantly more difficult to win when you don't sit down and pour your hard earned money into the gaping maws of these one armed bandits. We drove from Spokane up to an area in the northern panhandle of Idaho near Lake Pend Oreille to a small town (population 530) called Clark Fork. We settled into the Clark Fork Lodge and had a surprisingly fancy meal at a quirky little place
  6. Here's a video that makes you want to drop everything and visit the fantastic Clarkia, Idaho, Middle Miocene (15 million years old) fossil leaf-bearing locality. Extraordinary preservation. Plants preserved with their original pigmentation. And you can actually lift the leaves off the matrix for detailed study of the specimens. A video co-produced by Bucknell University, the University of Idaho, and the Botanical Society of America:
  7. I got back last week from a two week collecting trip in Idaho, Utah and Wyoming with my wife and our two friends Bill and Jean. In addition to collecting, sunstones, topaz, agates and fluorescent minerals we collected Cambrian,Silurian, Jurassic, Cretaceous and Eocene fossils. We collected trilobites outside Delta, Utah and Liberty, Idaho, Marine fossils in Emigration and Riley Canyons in Utah and fossil fish in Kemmerer, Wyoming. The results of the trip was 15 boxes shipped home and many hours of preparation ahead of me. My friends came away with 13 boxes of fossils. If anyone wants tips for

    Is this a Claw?

    I found this and thought it might be a claw? Found in the Eastern Washington/North Idaho area. It weighs 20 oz and measures 5" x 4" and is about 1.5" at its thickest point. I do have more pictures but I'm having sizing issures. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  11. Hi fellow Forum members. My wife and I are planning a collecting trip to Utah, Idaho and Wyoming the last week of June and first week of July. We have a condo in Park City. This will probably be a one time trip so we want to make the most of it. So far we have added U-Dig in Antelope Springs, Utah, and are planning on visiting Spence Gulch in Idaho. We are also looking at fossil fish collecting in Wyoming. My question is this; 1) Can anyone recommend other collecting localities in Utah for trilobites and/or Gogia? 2) Does anyone know if the Riley Canyon agatized horn coral site is st

  13. Hey everyone, I'll be in central Idaho (near Stanley) during the week of August 21 to see the eclipse, and it would be great to get some fossil-hunting in while I'm there. Does anybody know any good spots within a day's drive of central Idaho? I've read a little bit about Clarkia and the fossil bowl to the north. Has anybody hunted there? How was it? Thanks!

    Interesting Idaho Fossilized Bone?

    Can anyone confirm if the is fossilized bone or simple an unusual stone? I am clueless on fossils so I will try to be as specific as I can and have included a measuring tape in photos (just over 5" long x 2.25" around at widest) and the items weight (14.6 oz). The history is totally unknown to me. I saved this from being tossed in the garbage so I am assuming it came from the local area (SE Idaho near Idaho Falls), but that is just my guess. I have made no attempt to clean the item as I do not wish to damage it in anyway. This thing has significant heft for it's size and weights about as m

    Idaho Coral? Id

    I found this fossil at 11,000' on a remote portion of Idahos tallest peak. Mt. Borah. I believe it's coral. I know nothing about rocks and any info would be great.

    From the album: Adventure is an individual thought!

    Idaho has plenty of camping and agate hunting sites. This is just an example of a rugged campsite that can be found by following the well groomed Forest Service roads.
