    Is it worth taking it home ?

    I found the following fossils hunting the Nicolet River Formation (Upper Ordovician). The layer where the specimens are is really friable, which makes them really fragile to remove, so I will have to remove a large piece of rock as a support. They measure approximately 2 and 1 inches respectively. I have two questions: 1. What is it ? 2. Is it worth taking it home?
  2. Denis Arcand

    I think it's a bivalve, but which one?

    I know there aren't many details for a formal identification, but even a guess would be fine I found it in the Nicolet River formation (Late Ordovician)

    Trying to ID some colored spot on rock

    I don't know if they are traces fossil or geological in nature, do you know what these spots are? The period is Late Ordovician Thanks! #1 #2 #3
  4. Fall promises to be spectacular in many ways. If you dream of colors, you will like the following. I like fossil hunting in the fall, although it's not really hunting, the fossils are underwater so it's more like fishing. Anyway, this is one of my many trips to this place, it's not very far and it allows me to go for a weekend nature walk. This is Ordovician, the site is not as beautiful or rich in fossils as the other sites we see in this forum, but it is rich in brachiopods, crinoids, bryozoans and gastropods. This time, I chose a theme to showcase my special finds of the day.

    What is this 3d puzzle ?

    I found this yesterday, it was very fragile and broken in many pieces when I handled it.

    Sowerbyella, Nicolet River Formation

    Location shows huge die-off of Sowerbyella sericea and other brachiopods in smaller numbers. The specific layer could not be determined as it was discovered at ground level on the beach. Loose as float,.

    Brachiopod ID please

    There are so many brachiopods that look alike, it's hard to identify them. Is this Dalmanella sp ? I found it in the Nicolet River formation (Late Ordovician) each one is 1/2 inch
  9. I have started this discussion to get some answers to the following questions, but we can have also have some fun if you show us your most colorful fossils. Can you explain why some fossils are gray and some are colored? What are the process that give fossils colors? Can we deduce something about the environment the organism was living in ? For example, the following fossils were found about 1 km apart in the Lorraine Group portion of the Nicolet River Formation near Montreal, Quebec. As you can see, the bottom plate is gray, very different from the colored f

    Cephalopod ?

    I found these Ordovician fossils in the Nicolet River formation, could it be cephalopod related?
  11. Denis Arcand

    Is it fossils or geological formations

    Can anyone tell me if these are actual fossils or just geological formations, although they look like fossilize plants to me, it would be very surprising to find fossilized plants from the late Ordovician period. both rocks were found in the Nicolet River Formation on the banks of the Richelieu river
  12. Denis Arcand

    My best guess is Sowerbyella ?

    Hi, I am still new at identifying brachiopods, I know there is a great diversity of similar species, which makes it even more difficult for me. Can you help me identify these two brachiopods, they both feature a semicircular outline, concavo-convex profile, and small size (~1.0 cm wide). They also have a wide, straight hinge numerous and very fine lines and ribs. Not sure if they are the same species, one of them has a larger size with a bit smaller width compared to length. So I don't think they are the same species. The plate was found in the Nicol

    I found a brachiopod with lips

    Hi fellow fossil collector, can you identify this brachiopod for me? I recently found a very different brachiopod, where I usually collect my fossils in an Upper Ordovician formation (Click here to see the site). I can easily find hundreds of swerbyella, but this fossil is very different from what I usually find, its huge size, 3 times larger than any fossil i usually find, and its different shape puzzles me. It measures approximately 3cm x 2.5cm. It also has intriguing concentric protuberances composed of a primary and secondary shell on external shell surface. As you

    This picture was taken as is, it was not photoshopped, everything is real in the picture. Only the contrast has been adjusted a little bit. I took this picture at a small beach where the fossils are underwater, so I literarily fish for the fossils. You can read my two articles on the subject by clicking on the following links: The day I went fishing for fossils (part I) The day I went fishing for fossils (part II)
  15. I don't know if this is the right place for this tread, as it's not really a trip, it's more like a few hours of outing. It won't call it hunting either, the fossils are underwater so it's more like fishing. Anyway, this is one of my many trips to this place, it's not very far, and it allows me to take a nature walk on weekends. Do not expect to see anything bigger than a few centimeters, this is the late Ordovician, historically the formation of rocks in the area is due to its immersion, towards the end of the Ordovician geological era, which led to the establishment of marine sed
  16. My first post was so popular that I decided to do a second. I went to the same place, and found more many rich and colorful fossils, and got enough material to write to you about it. For those who missed my first post, you will find it HERE As you will see in this article, I combine my two passions, collecting fossils and color photography. I love color, creating black and white photographs of fossils is good for scientific research, when you are a paleontologist and want to record the small details for science and posterity. But for people who are just starting to explore the wor

    Rock having goosebump

    I found this while fossil hunting see my post The day I went fishing for fossils. I'm wondering what it is , it's between 4 and 6 inches I guess, didn't have an rule with me at that time .

    Very small cephalopod ?

    I found this on one of my hash plate, is it what I think it is, a very small cephalopod ?
