  1. Hi everyone, Last week after getting lots of recommendations from people I spend a couple of days at Cap Blanc Nez in France to look for some fossils. And while it wasn't to most bountyfull hunt I did have a lot of fun and I was very pleased with the little finds that I managed to do. We had very nice weather, it was sunny and the temperature was just perfect for fossil hunting, and the cliffs and beach (and landscape overall) were absolutely stunning. The fossils in Cap Blanc Nez date back to the Cretaceous and there are deposits from the Turonian, Cenoma

    Hi i found this nautilus fossil 25 km west of Riyadh. It was a surface fossil and I don’t know when this lived. the geological period is middle late jurrasic but I would like to narrow that down a bit what species is this thanks

  4. Yesterday I somewhat unexpectedly ended up with a day off of work, and as it's too hot to enjoy hiking, I decided it was time to hit up my favorite exposure of the Fayetteville Shale. I found myself thinking on my way out, I've picked this place pretty clean, I don't think I'll find too much. Luckily for me though, the -20F freeze and extremely wet spring we've had did a nice job of eroding the shale. Almost as soon as I got into the creek, I saw a pickerel frog tucked away in a little hole. Not too much further, I hit the beginning of the exposed shale. The bed of
  5. I haven't been collecting from the Lias of Dorset or Somerset (in the UK) for a couple of years, for various reasons, obviously Covid being a major one over the last year. I'd begun to think I'd not really be able to go much again, but then we moved to Somerset, close to many exposures of material from the lower Lias (Hettangian, approx 200m years ago). So these days, I'm able to walk on the beaches every day. Living the dream! So far I've only found two small icthyosaur vertebra, but ammonites and bivalves have been a little more forthcoming. Here's a few photos of so
  6. Hey everyone, I just posted a video where i share my best nautilus fossil at the end. This was found on the Yorkshire Coast and is pretty rare to find a Nautilus. It's the only near complete one i've found pretty much

    Two Texas DFW Cretaceous Nautilus

    When I was visiting my parents for Christmas, there was a surprise for me in my favorite local creek bed, and it wasn't just how cold the water was! I've found plenty of ammos there, but these are my first two nautilus. I tried to find out what they are, but I pretty much got redirected to ammo IDs. I was also wondering if it's worth buying the HGMS ID books. I'm curious, but don't really want to spend the money. These were found in a marl layer, but I'm not really sure which one. Grayson Marl I believe. Found in Tarrant County. Are they cymatoceras? Cracked one is about 2" diameter,

    Fossil Nautilus?

    Hi there - Been following this forum for years now but this is my first time posting! Figured I should finally try to figure out what this mystery fossil is that I have... Years ago - probably 10 years ago at this point - I found this fossil washed up on the beach at Bald Head Island NC. Because of its markings, I assumed it was likely a nautilus, but everything I found online or in fossil books of NC looked dissimilar from this particular piece. So, I'll ask you all - what do you think it is? Am I right to think it's a nautilus of some kind, or perhaps something e

    Possible fossilised nautilus

    Hi All! I found this possible nautilus fossil shell on the beach. It has nacre and also is quite fossilised on the ends. Any help with ID would be very appreciated. Thankyou!
  12. A few of my ammonites collected from the Inferior Oolite at both coastal and inland quarry sites in Dorset, UK.
  13. Recieved these in the mail today. I have several ammonites, no nautilus, and no polished ammonites. These arrived today and are absolutely gorgeous. I like the ammonite, but to be honest I fond the Nautilus absolutely stunning. Not certain if that is opal on the shell or not but it is gorgeous. Just thought I would share.

    North Texas cracked open unknown

    I’m not sure what I have here. I was thinking it was some type of worn ammonite... it’s been in my rock garden for years and I can’t remember for sure, but think I found it either up near Paris or west of Fort Worth. Regardless, I chipped away at it today to reveal the hidden side. But it was not what I was expecting. (And what are the two small encased stones?)
  16. Found this in a creek bed. I have very little knowledge of fossils so just reaching out to those with more knowledge. Just curious to know what I found. Thank you in advance. More pictures here https://imgur.com/gallery/fCevhLW
  17. Hy guys, So I got this nautiloid in a wholesale and when I got home I realized this kind of small "hole" in the inner part of the shell. My doubt is if this is reminiscent of the siphuncle or it was made by someone. What do you think?
  18. On Saturday, whilst - as I thought - recovering from a cold, I spent six hours in the blazing sunshine, hunting for ammonites in the inland exposures of the Beacon Limestone in Somerset, England. It involved a lot of physical exertion, especially for someone who was ill, with the result that it's now two days later and I'm as sick as a dog - and on my 40th birthday, too. If that's not depressing, tell me something that is. Whilst I'm feeling sorry for myself, at least I can take comfort in the fact that I made some pretty good finds. These are just the most photogenic finds, t
  19. Hi there folks, Just need to know if I'm seeing this right. This is a piece from Madagascar I recently received. At first I didn't give much attention to it, but today i noticed the three small markings on the center of the piece. My question is: Would that be the reminiscent of the siphunculus of a Nautiloid specimen? Piece is from Madagascar. Thanks in advance, Juliano
  20. I generally don't collect recent shells unless by chance I happen to see a nice one lying on one of the beaches that I might visit on the odd holiday, but the other day I couldn't resist finally bidding for one of these on our favorite website. I'd been thinking on and off for a long time about getting a recent one for comparison with my fossiliferous ones, and besides, they just look plain beautiful. Nautilus pompilius
  21. I'm visiting Texas from California where fossils aren't readily available and I wanted to bring back an ammonite and trilobite for my girlfriend. This is the first time I've been out of the west coast and want to make it memorable. I was in Mineral Wells Sunday and did find a tiny, partial trilobite but no ammonites. I'm in Austin but I'm willing to drive snarge near anywhere in the state to go on a dig. If anyone wants to show me your collecting sites with the knowledge I'll keep the location to myself I'd greatly appreciate it, and so would my girlfriend. That aside, thanks all for
  22. Hi, I will like to seek advise regard this ammoniteis it fake. As the shape and structure is something I never come across. I do not have any information where the ammonite was it found, so I post it here and hope someone ever come across it and can advise.
  23. Hi, Does anyone ever see black nautilus fossil before? I saw this fossil in online but is kind of too perfect so will like to seek advise from you guys, is this a fake fossil or over process nautilus fossil?

    Nautilus in situ?

    Hey all. I found this at a local quarry. It looks like a nautilus shell to me. I'd appreciate some other opinions. It sits upright really nicely on my desk. Thanks!
  25. I bagged a couple of Nautilus while down at Lyme Regis recently. The one on the left will be a reverse prepper and still has its shell on which is a joy to see. The other is a polish job, I have a vague idea at how to do it, although I’d appreciate if anybody could give me a rundown or step by step guide on how to get it gleeming, as it’s not something I want to go in blind like I usually do. I’d appreciate any advice. Thanks.
