    Amber

    This was given to my parents by a friend about 38 years ago. He was a gemologist and my parents had purchased quite a few items in his store throughout the years. It was a going away gift when they were leaving the Vail Valley, Colorado. It's been sitting in storage until last year. Since I've had it, I've gotten a lot of scrutiny and assumptions of it being a fake or whatever. I know it's real and significant. Any thoughts from members would be so appreciated. I'm stuck and don't know where to go from here. Specs: 2.2 inches in length and weighs 19.87 grams.
  2. I've always wanted to visit the Florissant Fossil Quarry due to my interest in paleoentomology but for one reason or other, I was never able to make it out there. I was finally able to make a detour out during a roadtrip returning from a funeral last week. There were beautiful calm skies, which was lucky too since heavy rains were forecasted for the next 2 days. After a good 5 hours, this is what I had to show for my efforts: Most pieces will have unidentifiable organic smudges. Aside from that, small leaves are the most common readily recognizable fossils. I am a terrible botanist
  3. Making the most of the last of my unplanned leave from work, I decided to make a trip to the Eocene Upper Parachute Creek Member of the Green River Formation in Colorado. Unfortunately, the road was not plowed and there was isolated patches of snow on the ground: I decided to walk the 5 miles to the site anyway through snow, slush and mud., although other parts seemed clear and pleasant Mostly, it looked like this though. I didn't count on the extra effort it takes to walk through hilly landscape with slush and mud, which made the walk seem longer than it wa

    Burmite Amber Insect Id help

    Hi everyone! Can anyone help me id some small insects in amber? They're all from Myanmar and about 99 million years old. They're pretty small, mostly about 2 millimeters or less. I took the best photos I could, any help narrowing down what type of insect (or possibly arachnid) is greatly appreciated.
  5. I have 1kg of rough Burmese amber stones ready to polish but I'm a little stumped as to where to start. I've polished Dominican pieces before using a dremel and wet sandpaper with success, but this stuff is older and much harder. In addition to the thin rough skin on these pieces, a lot have rock (or some combination of amber/earth) running through them making it difficult to figure out the plan of attack in regard to finding inclusions and getting a nice shine. Anyone here have experience with this?
  6. Wanted to share an usual fossil I self collected a long time ago from the Triassic of New Jersey that I can't really find images of elsewhere on here. This a fossilized large Gall wasp nest, took me awhile to figure this one out initially. I've seen fossils insects but its a pleasant suprise to see a fossilized insect nest.

    Florissant Fossil Quarry - Colorado

    Well, I'm in my new habitat out here in Colorado, and while I miss dearly a good paddle on the river and my fossil hunts in the mud and sand, I had to make a trip out to our local spot at the Florissant Fossil Quarry. The kids seemed to dig smashing shale (it lasted about an hour), and the technique actually yielded our first decent leaf fossil. The shale smasher .. in disguise !! Dad, wanted to take a lighter approach and we did come home with a large bag of shale and some plant and insect specimens. I'll post some of those in this thread, even

    Show Me Your Best Fossils From Brazil!

    Brazil has some of the most incredible fossils in the world, and I feel not enough appreciation is given, especially to the fish of the Crato Formation! I have briefly been obsessed with the fossils from Brazil as I purchased my first and only fish from there, a small Dastilbe! With the import ban these fish are becoming rarer and rarer I would love to see what some of the older people got while the market was still open! I would also be interested in seeing the isolated teeth from the Spinosaurid from Crato!
  9. Hi there, this was found on a rock wall at a private residence. The rocks came from a farm in north east ohio. It looks like a dragon fly, but I haven't found a pic of one or a fossil that looks similar. Would the other stuff be plant debris? Thanks heaps for your time..

    Baltic Amber insects!

    I purchased this piece of amber form Poland a few weeks ago and I was wondering if anyone could help with identifying the insects? I’m not overly familiar with fossils of this age. Thanks! Note: the close up photos are taken using a hand lens.
  11. Dear all, It was difficult, very difficult to wait with posting, since I am very, very excited about this fossil find. However, I also wanted the Dutch magazine version to come out first. Well, it finally did this Tuesday, so here is some info in English, along with a couple of the figures. During a visit to the Piesberg near Osnabrück (Germany) in 2010, I found a stem fragment of Calamites decorated with strange, elongate-oval structures [Fig. 1]. While those features were unusual and quite remarkable, it proved difficult to find information about them and the fossil consequently went into

    Wings? Fins?

    Any thoughts on these small fragments? Carbondale formation, mecca shales. All are pretty small and measure 1-2mm, except the fourth pic is 2cm .Some look like wings and others look fishy to me. Any help appreciated!

  14. Last week, I made some incredible trips with my kids to the middle Cambrian U-Dig site, the Fossil Lake lagerstatte in Wyoming, and a muddy, rained-out attempt at the Late Cretaceous in Colorado. This was our first time visiting all of these sites - such amazing times! Here are some pics starting with Utah. My best find, a triple carcass Elrathia kingii Fossil Lake, first started splitting slabs in the Green River formation. This is where we were working. A large plate with three Knightias and a Diplomystus. Later we cut the plate do
  15. I was thinking about buying this amber from this website online and I've heard about fake insects amber and i was wondering if this was one of the or not. The specimen is meant to be 5 million years old (Pliocene) measures 30 by 23 mm with unidentified insects and was found in Colombia

    Insects in amber ID references?

    Hi, Is anyone aware of a good reference site (or book) on insects found in amber? I’m looking for references on all ages and all localities. thanks!
  17. Mind blown. Recent posts have been about opalised dino bones, and new beetles in amber. This fossil is an insect in opal! https://entomologytoday.org/2019/01/18/fossilized-insect-discovered-amber-opal/
  18. Is this real as if it is I’m considering buying it thanks

    Tennessee Amber

    My dad loves fossilized amber, As a teen he was promised a whole piece of amber with a mosquito in it but unfortunately his now homeless cousin stole it and it disappeared forever. He keeps wanting to go hunt for amber but I don’t know any places in Tennessee to go find any. It would make his year to go find a piece so if anyone knows any good locations it would be much appreciated.
