    Fairly recent bit of opal fossil research

    After learning about Weewarrasaurus, I thought it'd be nice to report the 'lesser-known' recent bit of research about the opalised fossil site Lightning Ridge (New South Wales, Australia) It's basically the most up-to-date paper dealing with the geology - including age, stratigraphy and lithology - and vertebrate paleontology. The paper provides many new details about the Griman Creek Formation (GCF), a Cenomanian (mid-Cretaceous) formation which crops out in the area around Lightning Ridge. The GCF is a formation especially known for its diverse vertebrate paleo-ecosystem; of which many spec
  2. Hi everyone! I'm new to fossil hunting and I found a few interesting rocks underneath Sea Cliff Bridge near Wollongong in Australia. There was a lot of coal in the area for context. I will attach some photos of the rocks I found, I'm particularly interested in the small white (quartz??) lines intersecting the black part of the stone. Any help would be hugely appreciated! Thanks

  4. So, some of you may have heard of the small outback opal mining town of White Cliffs, New South Wales Australia. For many who read this post, I suspect that you have never even heard of it, or even know that it produces opal fossils. White Cliffs is a 12 hour drive from Sydney, traveling north west (towards Broken Hill), you travel over the Blue Mountains, through the farms of the central-west, the gold and copper town of Cobar and then hitting the historical town of Wilcannia and then traveling north to White Cliffs. White Cliffs claim to fame is an opalised replacemen

    Australian Pleistocene Bone for ID

    Collected in a creek bed near Gunnedah, NSW, Australia. The sediments date back to the late Pleistocene about 52 000 years ago and contain fossils of the Australian megafauna: kangaroos, diprotodontids, marsupial lions, crocodiles, birds and various others. The bone is 75 mm long and as you can see is almost dead straight! There is a circular cross section with thick bone walls at one end and a generally circular cross section with thinner bone walls at the other end. I first thought some kind of bird limb bone, but the thick bone wall at one end didn't make sense. Now i am thinki
