    Hello everyone

    Hi everyone. Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to share a find. I was searching for knappable material along a river in a limestone rich area of central Pa and I found this. It seems to be limestone or chert with tiny teeth or strangely shaped quartz crystals. I can’t be sure so I wanted to share and see if anyone has an opinion. The inclusions feel sharp and are pointy unlike any crystals I’ve ever seen. Thanks for taking a look.
  2. Item 1 looks like a pretty large bivalve, but maybe it's just a rock with a cavity or seed pod? Item 2 seems like a fossil to me, and seems to have the right "look" of a fossilized bone. Item 3 was found in the same spot as 1 and 2, a fallen tree next to a creek in Southeastern Mercer County. Item 4 was found farther south in NJ, near the Delaware River in Burlington County. My 10-year old is convinced it's a fossil - the blue rock is very soft, the matrix seems to be reactive to vinegar. As a beginner with a youngster who is obsessed at the moment with finding fossils, I'd love to
  3. Hi all, would love your thoughts on what this might be. Found it in Tamala limestone aka Coastal Limestone that dates back to the Pleistocene Age. The circular parts about 1" in diameter.

    Crinoids, packstone, brachyzoans?

    Found these while having a stroll on the beach on the southwestern tip of lake Michigan, in Illinois just south of the Wisconsin border. I am about as novice as you can get, and found this site while trying to figure out what these are... I'm pretty confident that the rings are crinoid stems, unsure about everything else. Hope the pictures are good enough, hard to photograph small things with a phone camera. Mostly curious about the spike shape on this one The smaller one here is the backside of the one above I don't know if these two are fossils, they look

    Cretaceous Shark Tooth?

    Anybody can identify this Tooth? Found in cretaceous, turonian sandy-limestone in Poland (Tyniec, Cracow). I think it's a Shark Tooth, or other fish but I don't know which exactly.
  6. A few highlights from fossil hunting in the Amberg-Sulzbach county (Bavaria, Germany) in June 2022. There's small abandoned limestone quarries all over the place, picked a couple random ones and found these guys and dozens of more fragmentary bits.

    Fish scale in limestone?

    Is this a fish scale? Or just a concretion? It's 14.5mm in length. Glacial erratic limestone, found near Jeziorsko, Łódzkie, Poland.

    Pentagon shaped piece

    When cleaning up rocks I brought home today, I found this little piece that I didn't originally target. It's pentagon shape makes me believe it's for sure a fossil. I've never found anything like it, so I feel like I'm about to get an education here. Perhaps part of a crinoid? Whatever it is, I don't have the experience, yet. Also noticed the indented hole on the top. Maybe part of it, maybe not. It's way too centered I think to not be part of it. Underside. It is convex with a small raised ridge along the edge. Sideways view of the

    Identification Help Needed

    Recently found this fossil while on family vacation in South-Central Minnesota. The site is limestone and also had a lot of Brachiopods. I'm so tired of relatives joking its poo. Hoping someone can help me ID it, the internet was of no help so far.
  10. Kool777

    What in the world is this

    What is this? Found in Raytown, MO.
  11. I bought this piece online and it just looks too good to be true, especially for the price.

    Antiquatonia maybe? (Brachiopod)

    I think this is the genus Antiquatonia, but I’m looking for some confirmation. I found this back in April, going through my finds and trying to ID. Found in Limestone. Glenshaw Formation (Conemaugh Group)
  13. cngodles

    Brachiopod, but which one?

    By far the most detailed Brachiopod I’ve found to date. The top impression, which isn’t shown, appeared to have two larger bands running down the center. The small piece in attachment 3 was somewhat of a steinkern or impression below it. Scale line is 1cm. Photos taken with a DSL through a microscope. This came from eroded Limestone.

    Fossil celery?

    Well, probably not, but it looks like it. And forget the 'Point Pelee' tag, that's only where the rock was, definitely not the original location. After a lot of severe storms and erosion at the tip of the point, the shoreline has been buttressed with large limestone blocks from elswhere. In one of them we saw this protruding fossil, And took the normal crappy cel phone picture, which has been cropped and sharpened.

    Looks like a flower, not crinoid?

    Found on surface in area with numerous crinoid stem sections. Stone appears to also have stem cross-section impressions. Friend notes this specimen does not have the five-lobed feature of crinoids. Western St. Louis County, Missouri. Near Rockwoods Reservation. Rocky clay soil is tens of meters deep with egg- to fist-size rounded stones throughout. Is this a cross-section or a negative impression? Vascular bundles? If not crinoid, what?
  16. Konodioda

    What can this possibly be?

    Can someone please help me identify this. I don't know how old it is. I found this in Rockford Illinois, I found this in a roadcut. A fossil I found near it lived in the Ordovician period.
  17. These pictures are all the same rock just different angles for texture and visual show, I haven't found anything else in the rest of the item, just the lump ( which my husband has dubbed.. the klingon mini crater)
  18. Hi There, Another fossil find needing some help with its ID please. This was found at Llanymynech Quarry in Shropshire/Wales which the cliffs are Carboniferous limestone. I think it could be a coral of some type or at a push a section of a Crinoidea. Many thanks in advance. N
  19. As with the other most of this prep was done with a sharpened sewing needle. I finished it off with Paleobond.

    Bone, or just rock?

    Today I was on a trip in Mississippi and found these suspicious looking objects, the area has generally more mountainous rocks, but these stuck out to me. The first one might be limestone, the second I think is either a rock or a bone, and same with the third, I do not have the one I believe is limestone anymore, but I was just curious if it was limestone.
  21. I'm prepping fossils in Oolitic limestone, which is new for me. This fossil is small and delicate, and appears to be a tooth. Should I use hand tools, or what I was thinking was cotton bud, vinegar and a lot of patience? I'm concerned the vinegar would attack the tooth. The white patches are where I scraped the matrix with hand tools, but I wasn't confident this was the best method.

    Please help... is this what I think?

    i found this in the creek that my yard goes into(dallas, TX. Prairie Creek) and been cleaning this for 2+ years with plastic bristle brushes because it looks familiar and the colors and textures keep coming also some black hairlike protrusions hear and there. This picture needs to be left side down... i will try for a better photo. the picture.

    Plant Fossil ID

    I don't recall when I found this but would like to put a name to my find many years ago. Any idea as to what plant species this may be?

    Unknown fossils - Receptaculites?

    The two sides of a single small chunk of limestone show two very different fossils. One side may be a Receptaculites, and the other I don't recognize. The rock was found on the surface in an area of mixed cobble, formerly an ancient riverbed, so the origin is uncertain. Most of the old limestones in the area are Devonian or Carboniferous. The stone's about 4 cm long. The area it was found was also inhabited by the Sinagua people, who abandoned the site about 700 years ago. They could have transported the stone from somewhere or traded for it? Any ideas what th
  25. Hello all. Quite a time back I found this shiny black thing in a piece of Brush Creek limestone. I had tentatively identified it as a trilobite free cheek part. However, a trip to the museum has the invertebrate paleontology department telling me that it's not for two reasons. While similar looking as a free cheek, the top portion doesn't match It's way too big to be a trilobite from this time period. I do agree with both assessments. It's twice the size of a typical Kasimovian (Late Pennsylvanian) trilobite from here. So, any fish part
