  1. I have small amounts of micro matrix that I’d be willing to trade. My preference would be to trade both to one person for ease of shipping. Old Church Formation, Oligocene Virginia I had separated some matrix before searching any of it specifically to trade some and rethought it after I found a Pristiophorus rostral lol I decided to not search it though as the intent was to give somebody else a chance to have fun searching. It is very productive matrix. I can see a couple of shark teeth in there. Among the possible shark teeth are Notorynchus, Squatina, Carcharias, Alop

    Displaying Micro Fossils

    I really enjoy micro fossils and consider them an important part of my recently begun collection. However, I find that I am disappointed with the options for displaying these fossils. Does anyone have any suggestions for displaying these fossils that make them visible to the naked eye for others to enjoy this part of my collection? I have tried a few gem jar type things that supposedly have magnification 3-5x. The results are less than impressive. I appreciate any tips anyone is able to provide.

    Fun with Calvert Formation micros

    We were very fortunate to get quite a bit of Calvert Formation micro matrix and some great teeth from @sharkdoctor. This is my first exploration of this formation and I am loving it. Lots of Carcharhiniformes material and it will take me a little time to ID some of Carcharhinus teeth but that is a good learning experience. I need the practice. The very fine matrix has been my favorite. I’ve found a few Scyliorhinus teeth, a few Squalus teeth and a few Mustelus teeth. Raja teeth are way more common than in STH. I’ve searched a lot of STH matrix and found 2 Skate teeth. It took me 1
  4. I am in nj and have heard of some good spots for micro fossils around here but I don’t know how to go about searching. Do you guys look though material in the field or take it home? Thanks, Noel
  5. I am still not back to work so I’m pretty bored and don’t have new micro matrix to pick through so I have been examining some STH micros I found in previously searched matrix we got from @JBMugu awhile back. One of the denticles I found stood out from all others. I only found one of this morphology in all the matrix I searched. I set it aside in it’s own bag in with the other denticles. I forgot about it until a search for papers on Echinorhinus fossils. I saw a photo of Echinorhinus denticles and I remembered the denticle I found. It looks so similar that I think that is what thi
  6. Hi everyone! Inspired by @JamieLynn, I purchased some micromatrix from our favourite auction site a couple of months ago. It finally arrived last week, and after going through it once, I've found a few little goodies that I'd like help in identifying. I'll also tag @Bobby Rico because I know that he has searched through this stuff in the past, too. The fossils are from Richard's Spur in Oklahoma and they are Permian in age. Perhaps @jdp and @dinodigger can also have a look (especially at #1 and #5)? I appreciate any help you can give! Thanks in advance!
  7. We got a large donation of STH fossil material from @JBMugu recently. I have been working from home for a week now and this has given me time to break down the large amount of material. There has been lots of sorting, some light cleaning, and quite a bit of time at the microscope as he gave us quite a bit of micro matrix to go through and that can be pretty time consuming. I thought it might be fun to go through the donation and show the progress we have made in sorting through so many fossils. This donation is so large that we got fossils that will not only bolster the displays an
  8. We have recently picked up some rather interesting micro shark teeth from the Paleozoic. Originally this was our way to get some older shark fossils to show students but I am actually pretty interested in continuing to collect micros from this period. First up, the oldest Chondrichthyes fossils we have and as I understand it, the second oldest yet found. Denticles Upper Ordovician Harding Sandstone Colorado I read that these had been given a name, Tezakia. Not sure if that is still valid or if these denticles match those described.

    More Mesaverde ID help needed

    I have a few more micro finds from the Mesaverde matrix that I could use some ID help with. I found additional information as well, these micros come from the Rollins member. Given the lack of information on line I am not sure how much that helps if at all. First up is the one that at first glance looked like it might be a ray of some kind but am pretty stumped. I could not find any good matches for this one and I searched pretty hard. It is 2mm or so in size and this is the best I could do picture wise. I really have no idea what it is.
  10. G'day everyone! Around a week ago, I received a package of micro matrix from Rattlesnake Creek (Aged late Miocene?), generously given to be by the amazing @GeschWhat. I have only gone through the matrix but was not disappointed. The micro matrix was packed full of shark, ray and fish material, as well as a couple of small bones. Here is some photos of my finds. I have attempted to ID some and left others. If you can ID some of my finds, it would greatly appreciated. All of my current finds Shark teeth (Unknwon ID) Ray T
  11. Hello everyone, I have been collecting fossils for almost two years now but even incthis short period of time I have amassed a large collection. Unfortunately bringing home slabs of rock home atleast a couple times a month starts to fill up the house and does not bode well with my parents. Still being 15 I do not have a lot of space for the fossils so my dad and I have started cleaning through the garage soughting through the large slabs. To also tackle the storage peoblem I have started collecting smaller fossils (Shells, teeth, etc) and have now taken an interest in micro fossils
  12. Hello, This is my first post of this forum and I would like to show you some of my unidentified macro plant spores and vertebrate remains found in residue from fallen bits of plant debris bed picked up at Yaverland IOW, photos were taken under AmScope USB microscope, hope you like them. Still to experiment with the Toupview stacking software, watch this space. The Albaneretontid jaw holds nine teeth, this is the one I hope to get my stacking software working on. I have thrown in a close up of a termite coprolite apparently they have not changed in shape (hexagonal) for 75 million ye
  13. Aust is a small village in South Gloucestershire, England, about 10 miles (16 km) north of Bristol and about 28 miles (45 km) south west of Gloucester U.K. It is located on the eastern side of the Severn estuary, close to the eastern end of the Severn Bridge, now part of the M48 motorway. The river bank, which is sometimes flooded due to the high tidal range of the Severn joins Aust Cliff, above the Severn, located about 0.5 miles from the village.
  14. Last summer I finished hunting another batch of Sacha's Peace River pebble matrix, one of my favorites. I found plenty of familiar specimens and a few rare surprises. Here are a few photos to illustrate once again the nice variety of small fossils in the Peace River. If you can further ID any of these, please let me know. I am here to learn. Some fish teeth including Diodontidae (or a Moon Pie) Sparidae > Sparidae > This one is conical > pharyngeal teeth > continued in next reply
  15. Please help me name this piece of furniture. Is it a chest, a cabinet, a case, a cupboard? What is it? This was inspired by an antique piece my father found in a workshop of a retired architect. He refurbished it into a showpiece for his bride; for it was a family heirloom. Shrek thought it would make a great display (?) for our fossils. My father is a master carpenter, and has made many custom pieces from imagination alone. Our dining room where this (?) will go has a grandfather clock, curio shelf, dining table, and large bookshelf all custom made of cherry by my Dad. Yes, I'm fluffing
