    Shell fossils new Zealand

    Hi there all, I'm new to this. Please help... View the photos attached and any info would be amazing. Thanks kindly. My name is che-ruby wood.
  3. This is from an email exchange between Dr. Elizabeth T. Smith (of Lightning Ridge and author of the singular "Black Opal Fossils of Lightning Ridge") and I, last month. [Liz also co-authored "Ornithopod diversity in the Griman Creek Formation (Cenomanian), New South Wales, Australia" which was first published in Peer J magazine and which established the new species of herbivore, Weewarasaurus pobeni.] "To explain, it's 0345 and I have insomnia intensified by my excitement about an opalised Lungfish plate I bought today from a top bloke mining at Emu Field (Coocoran), and a little
  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

    Opalised Dino Tooth? Pic Heavy

    Hello everyone I have recently obtained an opal parcel of rough to cut into gems from the opal fields at lightning ridge Australia, however right before I was about to grind this one rough opal something stood out. I remembered walking in the natural history museum in Sidney Australia and noticed the opalized teeth of varies animals/dinos etc. This one was just like one I had seen many years ago. I cleaned it only; no polish just water and a soft paintbrush as not to alter it. From my research, I found a possible match a Hypsilophodon it lived in the area where lightning ridge opals are fo

    Strange Specimen

    Received in an opal parcel, i have been told this is a fossil, maybe of a plant stem. If so, i would like to at least put a definite name of some sort on it. Any and all help is appreciated! feel free to ask any questions! Thank you! IMG_2225.MOV
  7. Hey all this is my first time posting here! I found a fossil (i think) that i need some help identifying. Its unlike most fossils i have seen. I work in landscaping so i see a lot of rocks, this one was different and appeared to have all sorts of shells and mollusks trapped inside. I cracked it open to find it was full of bones, iridescent bones that looked like an oil sheen had dried over them. I have tried to look up opalization but find mostly plants and nothing really comparable. I need help! More pictures available on request. The pictures do no capture the true sheen of the bones and som
  8. I used to be a member her many years ago when young Knackers McGee started the site showing off his wonderful finds, time marches on, now i have somethig to contribute of note. I aquired a collection of Gem grade Opalised Plesiosaur bones, mainly half verterbrae, whatsit called, split vertically. Included, was one unknown perfect split shown below. If anyone is interested in such things, I can post more pics and links to videos for your amusement. This image is of the best split, most likely broken in the field by the pick. The central inclusions
  9. Some of it is eroded so makes it a little tricky. I've come up with the following so am humbly requesting anyone who is able to verify or correct. Thanks. Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Mollusca Class: Bivalvia Order: Veneroida Family: Mesodesmatidae Genus: Paphies

    Opalised Fish Vertebrae

    Good afternoon, Well here goes my first post and I hope some of you might find it interesting. Two years ago, we found this in our mine at White Cliffs NSW. For those of you who don’t know, White Cliffs is an opal mining community and was Australians first commercial opal field and today it still produces some of the finest opal in the world. You will hear people say that mining there is non-existent as it is mined out; well nothing is further from the truth. Only one percent of the field has actually been mined, so there are still lots of discoveries being made. Anyway, I am getting off tr

    Opalised Bivalve Shell #1

    From the album: Opalised Fossils

    Name: Opalised Bivalve Shell Age: 110 million years old Locality: Lightning Ridge, New South Wales, Australia Formation: Griman Creek Formation Length: 25mm Notes: This is an opalised bivalve shell from Australia. Unlike the marine shells from Coober Pedy, the other hotspot for opalised fossils in Australia, the shells from Lightning Ridge are less common and come from a freshwater river environment. This one is open, and clearly shows the ridged pattern of the shell it once was. A nice addition to my opal fossil collection.

    Opalised Bivalve Shell #2

    From the album: Opalised Fossils

    Name: Opalised Bivalve Shell Age: 110 million years old Locality: Lightning Ridge, New South Wales, Australia Formation: Griman Creek Formation Length: 32mm long Notes: This is another opalised shell from my collection, kindly given to me by my friend Shaun. Thanks mate!

    Opalised Belemnite #1

    From the album: Opalised Fossils

    Name: Opalised Belemnite Pipe Age: 120 million years old Locality: Coober Pedy, South Australia Length: 60mm long Notes: This is an opalised belemnite pipe from Australia. It originates from the Cretaceous marine deposits of Coober Pedy and is transparent when held up to a strong light. It is also quite a large example.

    Opalised Dinosaur Vertebra (Photo 2)

    From the album: Opalised Fossils

    Name: Opalised Dinosaur (Caudal?) Vertebra Age: 110 million years old Locality: Lightning Ridge, New South Wales, Australia Formation: Griman Creek Formation Length: 16mm end to end Notes: This is an opalised dinosaur vertebra from Australia. I originally bought it as an opalised 'reptile' vertebra but it's ID as being a dinosaur vertebra was confirmed by one of the leading experts on the opalised fossils of Lightning Ridge. It is likely a juvenile ornithopod or theropod vertebral centrum, missing the tall neural arch. It is semi-transparent when held up to a strong light and is an except
