    Geodized fossils?

    I'm a newbie to The Fossil Forum. I hike in the hilly areas of south-central Indiana (mainly Morgan, Monroe & Brown counties) whenever I get a chance and many times I end up walking the rocky creek beds looking for fossils & unusual rocks. These creeks are rich in geodes and there is a lot of shale & limestone. I believe that some of the unusual finds are geodized fossils. I have several that I'd like to share with the forum to get opinions from the experts. Attaching multiple photos (15 total: 3 groups of 5) of 4 different specimens with the first five photos showing a pair w
  2. Hi everyone! So I am planning on doing some fossil hunting this year before it gets to cold and I am trying to find some good places. Thanks in advance!
  3. Tammy and I made our first post-pandemic roadtrip and we went to Chicago to see family. Decided to drive as I was not yet comfortable with airports and airplanes. I had hoped to visit a site in southern Illinois where blastoids used to be plentiful and easy to find. Sadly, that site was mistreated and is no longer available. Members here on the forum suggested several alternatives which should produce the blastoids that I longed to hunt for. We found that the large (and well known) roadcut just north of Sulphur, Indiana was along the route (kind of) on our return trip and so it was added to t

  5. This is my first "new topic" post to the FF, so I hope I'm doing this correctly. If you have a microscope or equivalent and a current or potential interest in micro-fossils, you might enjoy collecting at the following historic locality: Mississippian Salem Limestone, about 5 miles east of Salem, Indiana off Rt. 160; Spergen (Spurgeon) Hill, railroad cut (Manon RR) paralleling S. Harristown Rd, 0.75 mi north of Rt. 160; south end of Trackside Road; approximately 140 meters S of Harristown, Washington Co., Indiana; diminuitive fauna; Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) coordinates: 16S 585024.

    Our Great I-80 Road Trip

    Greetings, all! After exploring outcrops and spoils piles from Quebec down to Florida, we are heading west from Delaware to Crawford, Nebraska and back this fall. Planning to stop by Sylvania, OH and Clear Lake, IA. Probably Richmond, IN. Any other suggestions? Thoughts on these three?
  7. While heading to visit family in southern Indiana, I decided to leave a day early to do a bit of collecting in the Cincinnatian. The first stop was, as usual, St. Leon, to look for the famous Flexicalymene rollers. In the past, I've usually found 2-4 per visit, but was quite lucky this time, walking away with 10 rollers and my first prone. Here are a couple in situ shots. After a couple hours at St. Leon, I headed towards my hotel. As it turned out, it was just down the road from Trammel Fossil Park. I had not been here before. It ex

    Fossil ID

    I have really been wanting to get this ID'ed but until recently I didn't have a good camera good enough to take a picture of it. Thanks in advance.
  9. I purchased a couple of buckets of fossil/rocks from a friend who found them in the Ohio/Indiana area...which he told me was Ordovician and Silurian. Unfortunatly I've lost the paper that described where this section of fossil/rock came from. At first I thought it was a Crinoid...upon further inspection I noticed that there were patterns along with the ridges. So, I scribed it out of the rock. I noticed that one end was slightly larger than the other and that it was on the "Oval" side. There is a bit of pyritisation...especially inside the small end. So, I'm not really sure ...but I

    Unusual find

    I found this in Indiana near Columbus. I originally thought it may have been a tool of some sort because of the triangular shapes, but the more I look at it, the more I've wondered if it's a bone. Or maybe it's just a beat up rock. Thsnk you in advance for any informatio.

    Geodized fossil.

    I found this the other day and it has really puzzled me ever since! I would appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks in advance.

    Geodized crinoid calyx?

    I found this yesterday and thought maybe it was a broken geodized crinoid calyx? Thanks in advance.

    Wooden Cocoon?

    Found in South Eastern Bartholomew County Indiana.. My younger brothers (Ages 8-9) were messing around digging random holes back in the 17 Acres of Forrest behind our house and came across this.. It looks almost like a Mud Wasp Nest but it's solid wood instead of dirt.. Maybe some type of Root? I don't think it's a fossil but figured it couldn't hurt to ask someone else who knows way more about this stuff than myself.. Any help identifying it would be greatly appreciated! Little bros think it's a dinosaur tooth (LOL).. Dimensions.. Length-(8cm) Width-(3cm) Height(1.5cm)

    Petosky stone in indiana

    I found this lovely rock at the Monroe reservoir on Monday. I believe it's a petosky stone, but maybe I'm wrong. I'm also wondering if I should try to polish it or anything or if it would be best left alone.

    Rodent jaw

    I found this mandible (I think) near Bloomington, Indiana over the weekend and was wondering if anyone could give me an ID on it. I believe it's the mandible of a rodent, but that's about as far as I get. Seems to large for a mouse or rat, but maybe a muskrat, shrew (if those are bigger?), or squirrel? And I'm guessing it's more recent rather than fossil?

    Is this a bone?

    I found this in Indian Creek near Bloomington. The shape is almost that of a turtle head(not insinuating that's what it is) and it has a node on one side that remings me of a joint head with holes. I'd like to know if this is even a bone and if it is, what kind? Or even what animal it likely came from.

    What is going on here?

    Found this at the Monroe Reservoir in Indiana on Monday. Looks like a brachiopod made of pyrite? Or is it more likely a cast?

    9 Possible Fossils?

    More Lake Michigan - Long Beach, IN finds. #1 - just a rock? #3,5 - horn corals? #4 - favosite? #8,9 - more coral? Sorry about the photo quality/quarter as a size reference. It was the best I could do for now. Thanks for your input

    What's this?

    I found this on the shore of Lake Michigan in Long Beach, Indiana– just south of the Michigan border. I have no clue what I am looking at. Any ideas? Thanks for your help!

    What might this be?

    I found these near Indian Creek in Springville, Indiana. I thought the heart shaped one might be a clam type of fossil, but I'm really new to all of this.
  22. Rubykicks

    What kind of fossil is this?

    This was another find from the Bloomington area. It was in the woods a little ways from Indian creek and was covered in moss. I thought it was a geode, but I was soaking it to break down the rock and I realized it was a fossil. Coral of some kind?
  23. Rubykicks

    Stigmaria?

    I finally took a picture of this beauty. I believe it is stigmaria, but please correct if I'm wrong! I also have other pieces I'm unsure of and would love feedback from anyone with the time. The first 3 pictures are the same rock Picture 4-6 are the the same Picture 7 and 8 are the same And then the rest are the same.
  24. Last summer I posted a trip report about finding some Pennsylvanian black shale in a river bed in East Central Illinois http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/106753-628-illinois-black-shale-trip-w-listracanthus/. I was able to visit the site again once more in the fall last year when the river was running much lower and collect more and larger pieces of the finely bedded and fissile shale. Since then I have been slowly splitting and going through the rocks I brought home, and finding many interesting fish parts- that is definitely the dominant fauna presen

    Fossil tooth ID

    The other day I found this fossil and I am really wondering what it is, It is about half an inch long. If you need better pictures I may be able to post some more.
