  1. I'm curious. Why are Fossils in Matrix, so Popular? Is it the impression that they are "as found", and somehow more genuine? Inquiring minds, want to know.
  2. hi folks, Im thinking of buying a cluster of Oviraptor from a seller who says he got these at a gem/fossil show over 10 years ago. He says he preps fossils and has extensive experience but has not finished prepping these particular eggs and won't get around to abrading them out of the matrix. I told him they are fake but he insists they are not, so I wanted to put it to the test here. thanks for your help.

    Jaw bone tooth ID help

    I have no idea the origin of this fossil. I had a couple paleontologist from a dinosaur lab look at it to no luck.
  4. Fossil skull of an extinct Sea Monster. What can you say about this piece? Is there any restoration in this piece? Where? -Zarafasaura Oceanis -Morocco -20×40×60 cm
  5. Howdy! I recently went to Post Oak creek, and ended up with more matrix than I can immediately use. Rather than let it sit unsearched, I figured it was worth a shot to post some up for trade here. Each bag has a pound of material in it, and they have proved to be very productive. I’ve found numerous ptychodus teeth, a (poorly preserved) lobster carapace, shark and fish vertebra, various bones, coprolites, and of course, lots of other shark teeth. So there’s lots of different things that can be found. I’ve got around 25-30 lbs I’d be willing to trade. I am primarily interested in verte

    Reptile Fossil ID Please

    Dear members: I wish I could say that I found this myself but I actually purchased it from an estate sale. There was no identification paperwork that came along with it but my own research online leads me to believe that it may be a Keichousaurus. I’ve examined the matrix carefully with magnification and I see enough continuation of strata from the surface down the sides and I even scraped away some matrix next to ribs to determine that this was not a fake or reproduction. So any help in confirming the identification would be appreciated. It seems to me that this is a pretty nice

    My first finds

    I took a small scoop of this matrix straight out of the bag.

    Tooth ID Help

    Just in case you did not read my recent post... Hope everyone is doing well. I miss being in a creek or on the beach, but all in due time. Every night I have been relaxing going through different types of matrix. Last week, in addition to looking through Bakerfield matrix, I also looked through Pungo Formation matrix from Lee Creek. I believe the these are three shark teeth are whale or basking shark teeth. All measurements are in MM. Any feedback (as always) is much appreciated!! 1. Basking shark tooth with the root!! If I am right... wow! If I am wrong.. nothing new and
  9. Found in Hays county, flaked off of a small cliff on top of a hill. Not the prettiest of pieces, but the prominent feature in the top right stuck out like a sore thumb (pun intended) and has peaked my interest which won't stop bugging me. Maybe a steinkern with a flake broken off or 2 that were pressed together and separated? Rudist? There are some small flakes of shell next to it in the matrix. Left side has some features, but needs some cleaning yet. The orange material is cemented on and cleaning that off of somewhat flaky limestone is out of my depth at the moment . Maybe

    Nodule, matrix, or whatever.

    Ku2 Hunt County, TX This is about the size of a car tire. These are typically heavy in mineral deposits on their interior with some perceived chambering. I've recovered quite a few over the past year that are very similar but none I've ever come across have had the exterior features like this one. It also carries that same orange color that I'm observing in a lot of the collected items. (Collage pic is of two others examples of the coloring referenced.) I've been pointed towards septerian nodules before with a similar submission. I've read some of the research o

    Judith River Herbivore teeth

    I posted in the fossil prep a few days ago about some Judith River matrix I got with teeth. Well now that I practiced on a damaged tooth shard I decided to start on this piece which seems to have two teeth laying on top of each other. I was hoping to get some help on what species these could be. I believe there is an ankylosaur tooth in good condition under the tooth that is more exposed. The small one is about a quarter inch and the larger underneath about 0.6 inches. this material is new to me and I have more matrix with different teeth so any other input is also helpful.

  15. Hey all This has popped up on on my country's version of online.... yep, no online here! I appreciate your thoughts on this one I'm sceptical... real tooth, seemingly in good condition (on the one side at least) apart from a missing tip. I can see two different colours on the matrix.... is the bulk of it real matrix with fake matrix coated over the top to hide a bunch of inconsistencies? Or is the whole lot fake matrix. The area where the crown and root meet is bad, really bad - definitely manufactured. Is that even a real root or a random piece of bone? As

  17. My son will be vacationing in Florida for the next week and a half with his grangmother. Since the Peace River will be off limits for fossil collecting due to seasonal high water flow, I was hoping he could grab a gallon of micro-fossil matrix from along the river. Does anyone know any sites along the Peace River or any other sites I suppose where I could send them to grab a scoop or two? One positive might be submerged areas might give access to spots that normally would be considered bank and technically illegal to scoop. Thank you for any help. Pics are just a few of many small

    6/17/21 Trip

    From the album: Post Oak Creek

    Nothing extraordinary, but I found an area with several chunks of matrix with teeth in them.
  19. Is this tooth remounted on the matrix? Or it is a natural piece?
