    Something or nothing

    Is this just a nodule inside another nodule ?? Looks like is wraps around its self but I can’t see any markings of any kind
  2. I have tried looking up the difference between a concretion and nodule and can’t seem to get a clear answer. I have seen both terms used on the forum but don’t know the difference and would like a clear answer so I can know what I’m talking about. Thanks ahead of time!

    Eurypterid In Siderite Nodule

    Hi All, Here is a Eurypterid in a Pennsylvanian age siderite nodule from Indiana. I'm hoping someone can point me towards a family, maybe even genus, ID for the specimen. I know the images don't show many of the fine features but I'm hoping the overall shape is distinctive. Also, I'm just starting to wade through Eurypterid PDFs now but if anyone can recommend a good review manuscript for the group I'd be grateful. Thanks for your consideration. Here are the two halves of the nodule:
  4. Hello dear forum members, among the collection of my late uncle there was a box of coal fossils, most of which are flat crumbly pieces of plant material. I left most of these in their protective wrappings for now. among the fragments on the bottom of the box I found some nodules, I think these caught my uncles eye and where collected on the same trip as the plant fossils. (from Germany, hard coal, not lignite, thats all I know). The nodules are heavy like ore minerals (pyrite comes to mind) There is one with an interesting texture. Maybe a coprolite?? @GeschWhat?

    Pecopteris villosa

    From the album: My collection in progress

    Pecopteris villosa Brongniart 1822 Location: Mazon Creek, Illinois, USA Age: 323 - 299 Mya (Pennsylvanian, Carboniferous) Measurements: 2x12,5 cm Kingdom: Plantae Division: Polypodiophyta Class: Polypodiopsida Subclass: Marattiidae Order: Marattiales Family: Marattiaceae

    Is this a jellyfish? Mazon Creek, IL

    Hi! I’ve been working on opening some nodules from Mazon Creek, IL, and opened this one about an hour ago. I’ve been looking at pictures online of jellyfish and have seen some loosely defined like this nodule, though this is probably just a regular old concretion. What do you think? Thanks! P.S. In hindsight I realize that wetting this nodule down wasn’t particularly helpful lol

    pyritized ammonite in nodule?

    Hello together, I just bought this thing online labelled as a septarian nodule with pyrite. From Germany, no further info. It looks quite fossilish to me, maybe like an ammonite? I just cant see exactly what the pyritized "ribbons" may be. I do not have it yet, so sorry, no scale. Size is 10x8x3cm. Any ideas? Thanks, J
  8. Hello all, With the start of this month I have gotten back to doing some fossil prep. I am still very much learning but I am happy with how this one turned out. It's a Callianopsis clalamenis nodule from the Pysht formation of Washington State which I found this past January that preserves two sets of feeding and defensive claws as well as some disarticulated shell material. This prep was fun and I am excited to try another shrimp, they are a welcome break from working with very hard pyrite nodules from Yorkshire. Before prep: After about half an hour

    Oddball Mazon Nodule

    My bucket of mazon nodules collected this summer have been sitting outside in the sub zero temperatures all winter. I was finally able to fetch the bucket and thaw them out recently. The nodule presented split completely different than other nodules that have opened. This one is a heptagon prism, VERY geometric, not split on a horizontal plane like I am used too . Is there a fossil present on the upper surface and have others experienced nodules opening up geometrical like this one? Thanks for looking Mike Front view Back view.

    Madagascar fish?

    Hello, Any idea what this might be, where from? Possibly a madagascar fish nodule? The seller just says "probably cretaceous", doesn't seem to know much else. 13cm length. Also while I'm at it, can I ask if any part seems restored or enhanced? Thanks.

    Mazon Creek Thing

    I was splitting open some Mazon Creek nodules I've had for a while about a half hour ago when this enigma popped out, I have no clue what it is. The nodule is from Pit 11.

    Mazon nodule unknown

    Need a little assistance identifying this. THANKS!

    Ammonite?

    Picked up two large items the other day. I figure they are large ammonites but the disks toward the bottom on the cleaned up one are confusing. They would be bilateral equal except for the break in the one. The second is about 125lbs and has an dark orange/blk pattern showing thru in areas that appear to be shell. Neylandville Formation, Hunt County TX

    Latest acquisition - fossil capelin

    From the album: Fossildude's Purchased/Gift Fossils

    Fossil fish nodule from the Lower Pleistocene Middle Holocene (Northgrippian Stage) of South West Greenland. Mallotus villosus. Thanks to @piranha for the age correction!

    Something, just not sure what...

    Pic one is how it originally presented. The rest show it as it looked being uncovered. It broke into sections and many parts broke off when removed. Have all parts isolated and somewhat cleaned off. Will attach those pics soon. Anyways, I have no clue what it could be. Found in Hunt County, TX three days ago.

    Mazon Creek - unknown fern

    Perhaps one of the Mazon Creek experts could help with the ID of this Was sold to me as Mazon Creek Pecopteris Look a bit different to the usual Pecopteris that I have seen

    Nodule, matrix, or whatever.

    Ku2 Hunt County, TX This is about the size of a car tire. These are typically heavy in mineral deposits on their interior with some perceived chambering. I've recovered quite a few over the past year that are very similar but none I've ever come across have had the exterior features like this one. It also carries that same orange color that I'm observing in a lot of the collected items. (Collage pic is of two others examples of the coloring referenced.) I've been pointed towards septerian nodules before with a similar submission. I've read some of the research o

    Mazon Creek Nodule Unknown

    A Mazon Creek nodule popped open a few days ago. At first I thought it was nothing. But in the right light, I have hope (hopefully not false hope) that this may indeed be a find. If this were my Ordovician matrix, I could envision a trilobite. Maybe it mimics a horseshoe crab!!!! During my hunt, I did get to see a horseshoe crab found by @flipper559 I will cross my fingers waiting for the experts to respond.
  19. Strange shaped Chert nodule? Or native artifact? Natural or not? Found in creek.

    Madagascar fish nodule

    Some time ago I bought this unidentified Madagascan fish online. Any ideas what species it is? Thanks

    Coprolite, or pseudocoprolite?

    I've had this for a while but don't recall where I got it. Someone probably gave it to me - without data as usual. Is it one of those 'pseudocoprolites' from the Miocene Wilkes Formation of Lewis Co, Washington? Or do things like this occur elsewhere? Are there any confirmed coprolites that look like this, from any place? If not a coprolite, what is is composed of - limonite, siderite? @GeschWhat

    Shale nodule teeth or chelicerae?

    Hi all! I have been using my new scope and camera to get some better photographs of conodonts I've recently found in nodules in Pennsylvanian Stark shale between Winterset and Bethany Falls limestone. I have found 4 of these 500-700micron, tooth-like structures-I destroyed several inadvertently removing the "carbonized film". Two of the 3 most recent are not connected to anything, but have a broad base. In the 3rd photo, you can see what appears to be a joint where the "tooth" connects. I am waiting on finer needles to clean this one. Though I call them "teeth", I don't reall
  23. Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Muncie Creek Shale I have been going through some old nodules I had collected from when I first found an area full of these nodules. I happened to find this and was unsure of what it was due to how it was sort of "Shiny" for lack of a better term. I also have some other different phosphatic nodules with similar features and would love to post them here if anyone is interested. I ultimately wish to have some sort of identification for these materials. Some sort of inclusion in thi
  24. Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Muncie Creek Shale Hello! I found this quite some time ago and did not know what sort of fish material it could be. I am fairly certain it's something fishy as I have found plenty of chondrichthyan teeth, body parts, bones and a few fish coprolites during my nodule cracking adventures.
