    holiday goniatite hunt.

    During our holiday in the ardennes we made a compulsory stop at our favorite hunting spot for devonian cephalopods. There has been a lot of new activity in the quarry, but sadly not in the best deposits for fossils. They are also starting to fill the older spots with ground. But the usual exposures were still delivering some goniatites from time to time. And we dit get quite a good haul this time. There was one notabely well preserved Manticoceras sp. and as a bonus we had a rare nautiloid. I cleaned up a couple of the goniatites with chemical prep; the result was spectacul

    Manticoceras sinuosum

    From the album: My collection in progress

    Manticoceras sinuosum Hall 1843 Location: Erfoud, Morocco Age: 383 - 359 Mya (Upper Devonian) Measurements: 7,2 cm (diameter) Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Mollusca Subphylum: Conchifera Class: Cephalopoda Subclass: Ammonoidea Order: Agoniatitida Suborder: Gephuroceratina Family: Gephuroceratidae
  3. It has been a while since I’ve posted some goniatites. The expansion of the quarry where I look for them is nearing to the end, and most of the good layers are gone. but sometimes we still find some neat specimens. this one was found a month ago. I used potassium hydroxide for the prepp of this one. The chemical reaction worked realy well on this specimen. Manticoceras sp. Late Devonian, Frasnian Belgium.

    Manticoceras ?

    I bought it from the same seller, the solitary horn coral that had no information. Sold as Goniatites, from Morocco, If I'm not mistaken it's some kind of Manticoceras, but which ? Can anyone recognize it? @Manticocerasman @Tidgy's Dad It is 22 centimeters long
  5. Hi everyone! Around 2 months ago on the 16th of october 2021 I went on a fossil hunting trip with the BVP to the stone quarry of Lompret in Belgium. https://www.paleontica.org/locations/fossil/654 The rocks in this quarry are Devonian in age and date back to the Frasnian (382.7 million years ago to 372.2 million years ago) with the finds mostly being from both the Neuville and Matagne Formations. According to Tom our excursion leader this quarry exists out of what used to be coral reefs and islands that formed around atolls. The fossils that you can find in this quar

    double goniatite fun

    It has been a while since I've found a decent sized goniatite on my favorite huntingspot, since the good deposits are no longer accesible. But recently I did find a specimen in a recent buldozer track. sadly the specimen has taken a hit from the vehicle moving over it. The extra bonus on the other hand was that there was a 2nd specimen right next to the 1st one. I've rarely seen 2 Manticoceras sp. from this size on the same matrix, so I was very happy with this one On top of that the preparation went realy smooth

    Double goniatite prep

    This weekend we finaly got out after those long months of lockdown. This time I am prepping a gephuroceratid that Natalie found. They are often found on top of the limestone banks, but this time she found one peeking out the center of the limestone bank. The position of the fossil didn’t make the prep any easier, since I had to grind away as much as possible of the matrix with a powertool without cutting in the fossil. Luckily I just missed a 2d goniatite hidden in the matrix with the grinder. After 4 to 5 hours of prepping with grinder, chisels, with air scribe and a

    Devonian cephalopod prepwork

    I have acces to a more powerfull compressor since last week, so the past few days we have been quite bussy prepping lots of fossils. Those are some of my late devonian fossils I have prepped, this is my favorite one to start with, not only does it have 2 cinds of goniatites but I found it at adifferent location than the one I usualy prospect. Manticoseras sp and Tornoceras sp. Late Devonian ( Frasnian ) Nismes ( Belgium The next pictures ar all from my usual location near Chimay ( Belgium) (can you spot the int

    Devonian cephalopod collection

    I finaly got around putting all my best cephalopods specimens that I collected over the past 4 years in the frasnian of southern Belgium on there place in the cabinets. They all come from the same location. (except an orthocone and a receptaculites from the same age but from a different spot ) most of it has already been posted in individual posts, but this gives an overal vieuw of the part of the collection on display. Enjoy al the Manticoceras, Crickites, Tornoceras, Bactrites, Orthocones and more
  10. It has been a while since we went to my favorite hunting spot near Chimay in Belgium, so I was realy eager to go back when we got there we had a little surprise, the whole back of the quarry was transformed in a motor cicle trail, apparantly this sunday there wil be a race and a lot of the bikers were prospecting the trail on foot in preparation of the race. luckily this didnt hinder us on our search, and this opend even opportunities since they dug through some of the stoone piles to make the trail thus revieling new material to go through, although we were careful no
  11. Before going back on my field trip today I had a few projects to finish. so last week I tackeld a broken goniatite, the specimen was in 2 parts and and large gaps were between the 2 parts. first I prepped the 2 pieces appart and then glued them back together. Then I filled the gaps with crack filler that I mixed with a bit of black paint. after this dried, I cut of the exces with a sharp knife and smoothed the surface with a a dremel with soft steel whire brush. I then finished it by adding some paint on the restored parts.

    Big manticoceras prepp

    Yet again a Manticoceras prepp my last few preppjobs were very succesful, and inspired by what @Ludwigia did on a larger one that I sent him, I tried to prepp one of my larger Manticoceras specimens. I tried a few new tricks to prepp this one, although the living chamber got dammaged, I decided to remove even more of the living chamber to show more of the inner shell with suture lines. It turned out quite well: Manticoceras sp. diameter 16 cm Frasnian ( late devonian ) Chimay area ( Belgium ) as found: ( top left specimen )

    lucky split during preppjob

    This week I've been prepping a few goniatites that I had lying around. This one didn't look very promising, but what a surprise I got when I tried to remove it from the matrix. a few hits with the chissle and it came out perfectly. I just had to remove the extremities and clean out the center with an airscribe. It turned out to be one of my best specimens Yet an other Manticoceras sp. for display

    Weathered crystallised goniatites

    I promised some regular posts from my collection in the weeks to come, so for this week I got two particular goniatites I like to share. Both specimens are weathered, but reveal some beautiful crystalisation of the chambers. Especialy the large one where they even form small calcite geodes. 1st specimen: Manticoceras sp. Frasnian Chimay area ( Belgium ) 2nd specimen: Sphaeromanticoceras sp. Frasnian Chimay area ( Belgium )

    Lucky split

    Most of the times when you find a promising specimen there is always that challenge of getting it unscathed out of the matrix. And often resulting in a lot of cursing and a damaged specimen. But sometimes, on very .. very … rare occasions you do get that lucky split. Found this Manticoceras ( goniatite ) last summer. One good hit with the chisel and pop. Only minimal prepwork left. This one is by far one of my best specimens and made it to my new avatar Manticoceras sp. Frasnian ( Devonian ) Chimay area ( Belgium ) htt
