    Lost and Gone Forever :C

    I have discovered the main draw back of Micro Matrix fossil hunting. Accidently tipping over the container you are putting your tiny finds in. Even though I have wood floors, I was unable to find the tiny perfectly preserved crab claw WITH BOTH PINCERS. I hope your night is going better than mine. Pity Party at my house.

    Tooth ID Help

    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 I started seperating ray teeth from Bakersfield matrix that I went through last week. I believe the these are three shark teeth that are not ray teeth. All measurements are in MM. Any feedback (as always) is much appreciated!! 1. This tooth has a little white nub sticking out. I was thinking something pathological like a smoothhound? 2. I am pretty confident this is a smoothound, mus

    Aurora Micro Matrix

    I was recently gifted some micro matrix from Aurora, North Carolina for Christmas and have been looking for tiny goodies. It is in single digit Fahrenheit temperature and it’s too dusty to search inside so can’t look today but I can hopefully receive some shark teeth IDs. There are some other unknowns but I haven’t photographed them yet and will wait to post until I am finished searching. I never knew ruining your neck could be so addictive. if you need more photos, I can get some. 1. Very strange and I have no idea 2. One of the bigger pieces and inco
  4. I looked through the non-shark tooth finds and there was a lot I didn’t know. Hopefully some of this can be identified. 1. Dolphin teeth, can they be further identified? I’m not sure if all these are cetacean but at least some are. @Boesse I’d appreciate your input. 2. a large tooth, is it a big fish or something else? 3. An image of more fish teeth, all appear to be from the same type. 4. This variety of fish teeth is much more narrow. 5. the last fish tooth variety, flat and broad. 6. I have a fee

    White River fm. Mini Claw

    Hi everyone! I found this claw while anthill hunting on the White River formation of northeastern Colorado. It's about 6 mm in length and 4 mm tall. Honestly I'm not certain that it's a fossil, but if it is I'm really excited to have found it. My first guess is that it's a small bird, but it could very well be mammalian or reptilian. Any input is appreciated.

    Microfossils

    Hello just wanted to show you guys this pebble I found from a jurrasic coast in Oman. does anyone know what the spiky shell at the bottom is? thank you for your time.!
  7. Hey all! Today I bring you some teeny tiny gastropods! All Inferior Oolite Group, Cotswolds UK. Every formation. There are a few different species that I have described here: Species A: "helter-skelter". A very very loose spiral, resembling a helter skelter... Species B: very neat loose spiraled. Species C: very tight spiral, very common Species D: fascinatingly bumpy textured spiral. Reminds me of a wallpaper! Measurements in cm. Isaac

    Pareidolia

    Micro fossils seem to provide a lot of opportunities to experience pareidolia. I find the need to temper my excitement. Though, this gastropod fragment provided more laughs than excitement. My granddaughter will keep this one, after all she once had her own pet baby dragon.

    Is this a ostracod?

    This measures just under 1mm. Ostracod?

    Aurora Mine spoil pile find for ID

    Ancient Bones has been searching a box of matrix from the Aurora Mine spoil pile in North Carolina and found this specimen. She sends her finds to me for photographing, but we are not sure how to label this one. My first thought is fish teeth in a fragment of jawbone. We are hoping that someone will be able to pin it down. @Al Dente @MarcoSr Thanks for looking.

    Micro Claw-Lance fm.

    Hi everyone! I came across this little piece as I was sorting through some of the anthill matrix I brought back from Wyoming's Lance formation. When I first found it, I must not have recognized it as a partial claw as it ended up alongside other odds and ends (fragments of bone, gar scales & other misc. fossils) at the bottom of a pill bottle where I had deposited all of my pickings. This week, however, I emptied that pill bottle to see what was inside in order to organize all the micros I found from this locality (which will get its own post eventually). It's evident to me that this is a

    Micro fossil squidlike creature?

    I was collecting some very small shell casts? usa, Brazos river gravel west of Houston Texas
  15. A few more of my favorite finds from the Aurora Fossil Museum Matrix - I am not even half way through the two gallon bags of matrix from my purchase! SO MUCH COOL LITTLE STUFF!! Being micros, all specimens are under 1/4 inch Shark Teeth: Top Cookie Cutter, Sand Tiger Bottom : Catshark, Unknown Not Shark Teeth: Top: Not sure what this one is, Second one is Raja Bottom: Fish Porgy and Dasyatidae Top: Echinoid spine and tubercle Bottom: Burrfish mouthplate and a bit o' Crab I think Not sure a
  16. Cabin fever made me stupidly ignore the weatherman (another institution I no longer trust) and head out into the 100% chance of rain and cold. Tried to avoid getting wet, as it WAS cold. Tried a very old spot, and was surprised at the results (the beach where I normally hunt has lost all its sand (?) and I've found no teeth their my last three trips). No rain, Birds were uproariously singing, Spring on the way! The creek was high and icy, saw no aquatic life. Anyway, found a bunch, showing the most interesting. Although big makos are nice (and I like the piebald one better though the 2" b

    Fossil or geologic

    I was looking through some of the rocks I have collected over the years and came across this one, appears to be an ordinary rock but with a strange fracture, it doesn’t look like a rock that would hold a fossil and the shape doesn’t remind me of anything which is why I’m pretty sure it is just a crack in the rock but I thought it odd that it was symmetric, since I am not 100% sure it’s a rock I thought I’d ask here scale is in mm, about 5 mm long first image shows the whole rock 2nd image shows another view of the rock 3rd image shows the fracture with scale 4th shows frac

    New Microscope Camera!

    Got a new "toy" for my birthday! I was wanting an "upgrade" from my Celestron (which has been quite good - but was a little lacking in some respects) and thanks to the FF members input, I decided to go with the Hayear 14 MP HDMI microscope camera. It was just over twice the price of the Celestron but is much higher resolution (and much easier to capture multiple focus images for stacking). I still like the Celestron for my "picking through matrix" - but I am super excited about getting some better, higher res pics! Interestingly, in comparison, some of the Celestron pics are still better sha
  19. Finally getting around to posting some of my New York Devonian Penn Dixie matrix finds! So much neat crinoid stuff, the occasional trilo bit and some other goodies! Someday, I hope to visit and maybe find some "Big" stuff! The CRINOIDS.....so many amazing shapes. I love Crinoid Geometry: (all are around 2-5 mm) The Trilo Bits: (2-5mm) probably Eldredgeops A friend was trying to type in Pygidium and it auto corrected to Pudgy Idiom.....so yeah. That's what they are now. Plus this nice sized one (5mm) in situ with a crinoid!
  20. Found in micro matrix from the Pungo River Formation, Aurora NC. Maybe a claw or teeth?? regards Ken

    Aurora Fossil Museum micro matrix

    I have a quick question for those that have bought and gone through their micro matrix from the Aurora Fossil Museum. Did you wash it before going through it, or wash it after you've found your fossils? I got the pack with the mini screen for sifting, but I'm a little afraid to wash it all first and risk losing tiny teeth. How did you all go about doing yours, or what do you think the best way would be?

    Worms?

    I found these on a beach in Illinois in a small lens of pyritic sand. I believe they are worm tubes but not entirely sure. They are only visible under microscope and occur with pyrite framboids. So my question is, are they indeed worm tubes, pellets, or something else? I can only assume they occur at the beach because of erosion of Silurian rocks placed there, but not sure of that either. In this pic below, you can see partially inside the tube which features spheres of pyrite. It's my understanding can be produced by worms.

    Small fossils in cleonaceras

    I bought this cleonaceras ammonite a while ago. It’s 110 Million years old from Madagascar. It said it was filled with mud and when I was looking at it I saw many small fossils, some of these may be unidentifiable or even not fossils but I know some are and want to see if you guys can help narrow it down. Since they have been polished the inclusions on one side are not on the other here’s the ammonite, 6.9 inches the longest way 1. Gastropod? 2. Shell fragment? 3. Shell fragment? 4. Gastropod? 5. Gast

    Watton Cliff Microfossil ID?

    In October 2020 I went to Watton Cliff for my first foray into microfossil hunting. I have since dissolved some of the matrix I collected in 20% acetic acid and one of the things I found, amongst all of the crinoid pieces is this. I'm not sure what it is but I'm guessing it's part of a fish. Are the rings visible on the reverse side annual growth rings? The sample I collected from Watton Cliff is from a loose sandy layer within the Forest Marble and is Bathonian in age. Thanks for giving it a look, as I sort and take more pictures I may post more of what I've found. Ther
