    What is this?

    My father was very found of nature and had an eye for valuable thing which he found in nature. In my home hometown area in Sogn, Norway, near the great Jostedal glacier, is rarely fossiles to find, becauce the glacier came out of this area, called "The home of Glacier" (Breheimen), many times in the past, to cover a great part of Europe during the ice-ages the last 2.3 million years. Here the nature is very much beautifully shaped with by the movement of the glaciers, and more movements than in other places. That is why the ancient sediments are removed and fossils are rare. However, it can be

    Adam's Ordovician.

    A nice Dictyonema flabelliforme dendroid graptolite from Oslo Fields in Norway. It's Tremadoc, Lower Ordovician in age and is thus maybe around 480 mya. Another angle :
  3. Hi all! I found this rock with many fairly well preserved plant fossils in it. It's from the Kvamshest-basin in western Norway, deposited about 380 ish Mya. Does anyone here know what kind of plants they are?

    What are these bullet-forms?

    Last summer I visited Helgøya, a place north in the Oslo-field, and found this rock at a site I believe is middle or late ordovician. No other well preserved fossils was possible to find at the site. It is very fragile, so didn't break up the whole rock, but some parts fell of which have clear patterns. It seems the whole rock have some kind of bullet forms inside. Anyone have an idea which kind of animal it is? Pic.1 Pic. 1 Pict. 2: Pic.3 Pic. 4 Pic. 5 Pic. 6: Pic. 7:
  5. PaleoOrdo

    What can this be?

    In Hadeland, Norway, I found this two fossils, about the same size and in the same rock. Anyone have any idea what it is? The age is Upper Ordovician, in the Kalvsjøen formation. It is dykes in the area, but not exactly where I found the rock. Then here is the other side of the rock:

    Adam's Cambrian

    A rangeomorph holdfast trace fossil from the Ediacara formation, Rawnsley quartzite of the Flinders Range, South Australia. This specimen is Medusina mawsoni, so called because it was until recently thought to be a jellyfish, but is now believed to be the attachment point of a fractal rangeomorph as Charniodiscus is the point of anchorage for Charnia sp. This one may have been the holdfast point for some species of Rangea. The diameter of the outer circle is 1.5 cm and the fossil is estimated to be 555 million years old.
  7. Last autom I found two nautiloids in Hadeland, Oslo-field, in another a little older formation than the other nautiloids I have found in the area, but also Katian, Upper Ordovicium; Kjørven formation (a. 447-448 my). I waited until now to present it, because I used some time to identify the right formation. The first one I thought first that it is an orthocerid nautiloid, but it seems (if I am right) to be a discosorid, because it has bullettes and possibly thick connecting rings and relativ broad or oval shaped siphuncle near the ventral margin of the conch. Its shape, although a mature part

    Is this a fossilized vertebra?

    Hi im a mineral hunter, and my whife picked up this little thing, first i was thinking it was some kind of slag, but after closer inspection it seem to have kind of a organic shape and is non magnetic with lots of small pores. Can this be a fossilized thing?

    Need help for ID

    At the site near Slemmestad where I have found many graptolite, I came over this trilobite. It is a few cm long, a part of the thorax. Is it possible to identify which family it is? It maybe can help me to narrow the id of the formation's age there (Bødalen).

    Strange forms

    My friend found this stone on our last fossil hounting tour. Do anyone have an idea what it can be? it is from MIDDLE ORDOVICIUM, Norway. The size is about 3cm long. Could it be a coral? Martin

    Is this a coral?

    My grandma found this very weird rock with holes in it then gave it to me. I suspect that it may be a coral but i dont know so can anyone help me out?
  13. "A petrified rectum of a norway whiffle bird." It came with a card I no longer have. The card describes it as a fossil. I do have a picture of the card and will upload it as well as a picture of the item. The name Ruben Shafer is on the card with what I assume to be a date next to it 1962.

    Trilobites in Norway

    This year's second hunt was successful, considering the snow. There is still a bit of snow covering some places. I was still lucky enough to find some ok fossils. The area where I found these trilobites is called fossildalen/fossilvalley in slemmestad (i`ve showed pictured from the area before). The fossils here in the area stem from the time periods of Cambrian, Ordovician and Silurian, a period of 541 million to 419 million years ago. At that time, Slemmestad was a seabed in a relatively shallow sea. The trilobites fossils I found are about 420 million years old I believe. I foun

    Fossil hunting in Norway

    this year's first hunt was not entirely successful. There is still a meter of snow in some places. Found some small fossils that I don't think are possible to identify. I may show pictures of them, but saw several large orthoceras and some trilobites in a mountain wall where the snow was melted (exposed to the sun). May have to wait a few weeks, after Easter before i can go fossilhunting. The area where i took these pictures is called fossildalen/fossilvalley in slemmestad. The fossils here in the area stem from the time periods of Cambrian, Ordovician and Silur, a period of 541 million to 419

    Silurian of Norway

  17. Hey, My sister and I found this rock that we thought looked a lot like a claw or a tooth. We found it in Norway in a lake, because of the drought the water was a lot lower than usual, so the place we found it would normally be underwater. It's not too far from the ocean either. I really don't know much about any of this, so I'm sorry that I'm not including too much information. (And sorry about the tags, I had no idea what to put there) I hope someone is able to help us, thank you

    Upper Cambrian mortality plate

    Hello.I found in my collection another very problematic piece. It was found in Tømte, Ringsaker district in Norway. This upper Cambrian black bituminous shale formation contains some anthraconite concretions and layers. This anthraconite or black bituminous limestone also called stinkstone because of characteristic smell when hammered is full of cephalons and pygidiums. Finally after few hours of research I choose two zones of Olenids. First is Olenus & Agnostus obesus zone, subzone Wahl ( Olenus wahlenbergi). Second choice is Agnostus pisiformis zone with Olenus alpha. In my opinion speci

    Fossils from Norway, Fossil ID.

    Hello guys and girls, I'm new here :-) Could you help me identify these fossils. They are all from my local city of Porsgrunn, Norway. I gathered these over the cause of a few days due to construction work, so I saved them before the whole area is buried under tons of rubble. The first fossil (1-2) around the size of a finger, the "branch" was much longer before I broke it lose, around half a meter. Image 3-5 is the one I am most curious about, could it be a trace fossil of some sort. It's embedded in the shale, some of the lines are 0,5 cm deep. From wha

    What is this?

    I found this on a beach in south-east Norway. Someone told me that it is some kind of bone, but I don't know what. It kind of looks like a tooth? Anyone know what it is and how old? Thanks!

    Norway

    I am going to visit family in Bomlo Norge in May. Has anyone done any collecting in Norge? It's an island just south of Bergen. Can anyone recommend any stops? I know theres an old gold mine there. Any chance of some amber? prehistoric or viking age finds are all good for me.
