  1. Brachiopod?

    This one showed up after a rock split. The steinkern was really shiny and smooth. Usually the shell is hard to save, but I was able to when air chiseling away at this one. There are noticeable grooves on one side.
  2. Lost and Found

    As I was cataloging specimens collected at Lake Jacksboro I came across this sweet little fossil that I found there last February. The site is Pennsylvanian but this beautiful little oyster is NOT. And luckily I am experienced enough to recognize it was out of place. But not all collectors are... Please, please, please be careful and try not to drop stuff out of your pockets, bags or bins from previous collecting sites. Oh, and if anyone recognizes or remembers this little gem let me know. I’ll pop it in the mail to you. PS it is about 17mm wide
  3. I am going to start adding some images of my favorite finds which I call Collection Pieces. Identifications range from maybe, probably to most likely. I've only started to seriously collect over the past year. I've spent a great deal of time studying and learning Geology, as a hobby. I am located in Western Pennsylvania. At first, a map of the area. Anything in bright yellow is the Glenshaw Formation. The Ames Limestone layer exists between the Glenshaw and the Casselman Formations, which is the Orange color on the map. I have yet to explore the Ames Limestone, so I've only found fossils that exist in the marine zones below the Ames. Second and Third, are Metacoceras. The Fourth photo is of another Metacoceras. The id is slightly less likely as I can only see a few of the rounded spines. But I'm pretty sure it is one. Coming up next is a Mooreoceras that I found just this past weekend. I maintain everything on a website, that is listed in my profile. Thank you! Clint
  4. Pennsylvanian Clam?

    Found this one in the eroded limestone. It came out in two pieces. I believe it to be a clam. You can see it dimensionaly through the top. I'm still going to clean it up further.
  5. The Bad Bush

    Here is a 300lb slab of rock I chisled out of my back yard that has a bush on it from the carboniferous this is in Lincoln County WV, Iron pyrite and quarts sandstone medium sizes grains matrix
  6. Metacoceras?

    Found this in what I call limestone locally, but it is more of a sandstone/shale mix. Very hard, black and cement like. Squares are 1 inch. I air scribed it out of the rock, where 50% was showing. My layer specifically is Woods Run Marine Zone, a hundred or so feet below Ames Limestone. It is the Glenshaw Formation. I am in Western PA. Also, this is my first forum post. I have several other types to post, but I figured I would start with this.
  7. Geological

    Found this piece while digging into the hillside behind the house near lake Wister in Southeast Oklahoma. The area is primarily Pennsylvanian and I have found some beautiful specimens on the land. There are a lot of limestone and sandstone ledges and outcroppings all over the property. I do t see any tooling marks on the edges so believe the shape is natural but not sure what the texturing is. Any help would be appreciated.
  8. Hi! Previous weekend me and my friend (paleozoic echinoderms researcher) spent in the quarry near Kasimov (Ryazan region, Russia) where upper carboniferous (pennsylvanian) deposits are exposed. This was an opening of the new fossil hunting season. The main target were echinoderms and especially crinoids. The weather was not very comfortable (+6 C and some rain) but perfect for echinoderm hunting. They become contrast and much more visible when wet. Here is some pictures.
  9. Plant fossils from Texas

    Found these plant fossils along with calamities. Need help in identifying. Found in north Texas in the Mingus Formation, Pennsylvanian, along a river bed. Thanks in advance for your assistance.
  10. Wister 3

    Found in Oklahoma near lake Wister. The area is predominately Pennsylvanian. Geological?
  11. Wister 2

    This was found when clearing rocks on my property in Wister, Ok. The area is predominately Pennsylvanian. Any help identifying would be appreciated.
  12. Lake Wister Area

    Found this digging in my yard near Lake Wister Ok. The region is primarily Pennsylvanian. Not sure if this is geological or something else. Whatever it is it’s pretty cool.
  13. Please Help

    Hello, I recently collected these fossils in the Minerals Wells area in North Texas, and I am not having any luck identifying the fossils. I know that I found the fossils in Pennsylvanian age sediment, and that’s about it. I really appreciate everyone who takes the time to help me.
  14. Fossil from kansas

    Not sure what these are. Maybe some sort of Bryozoa stem? I have hunted for years here in kansas and never come across this it's little round black balls in rows
  15. Calamites?

    I think the first picture is collapsed Calamites and the second 2 are part of the offshoot of a calamites. Not sure about the spelling but know itwas a type of cat tail. These were found in Southeast Oklahoma near Wister Lake. The area is Pennsylvanian.
  16. Janassa tooth discoloration

    Hey guys! I shared with you a few months ago my janassa toothplate, but the tooth has been showing some signs of progressive discoloration. It is slowly starting to grey in some areas, but’s never been exposed to vinegar or any real form of fossil prep. It is not moved around either so it’s not getting dinged up. Is this cause for alarm? I know only parts of the fossil are changing now, but I just want to ensure that the fossil isn’t going to be damaged by this in the future. Thank you.
  17. Crinoid?

    Hey guys! I found this fossil in east Kansas (Pennsylvanian) and thought it was a crinoid. However the shape is different looking. Do you think it’s a crinoid? Thank you! (The 2 parts belong together and yeah it’s pretty eroded)
  18. So as the titles states "Mazon Creek Collecting or the Joy of Instant Gratification- Choose Wisely", that was my choice today, and I choose instant gratification. Even though I have not been out to Pit 11 this year, I wanted to find some fossils and not just concretions with the hope of finding something, plus I still have a lot of buckets to crack open, so I decided to collect some other Pennsylvanian fossils. I decided to stop by a road cut that exposes the LaSalle Limestone member of the Bond Formation and had a great day collecting in near 40 degree weather. It was very sketchy collecting today since the ground is not frozen, but it is also not thawed, so it is very slick in the none snow covered area and it can send you sliding to the bottom of the road cut as it did to me today- a nice controlled slide of about 20 feet. Here are only a few of my finds from today, after a short time I stopped taking pics. Here is a nice partial Peripristis Shark Tooth, I believe I found a couple other possible partial teeth, but I will check those out tomorrow. A few large Echinaria brachiopods- Many big Composita argentia brachiopods- A little Orthoconic nautiloid- Spirifer brachiopod- Linoproductus cora brachiopods- Juresania nebrascensis an Spirifer brachiopods-
  19. Fossil hunting season at Illinois's Mazonia-Braidwood State Fish and Wildlife Area, the iconic Pit 11, runs from March to September every year. I didn't make it to the park at all last year, so I wanted to get out there on day 1 this year. I took the day off work and thankfully the weather cooperated- it was cloudy and in the 30s for most of the day. I picked up my rental car at 7:30 in the morning and hit the road for the 90 minute drive north. I wasn't the first one at the park, though- I saw a few other folks heading out on the trail with buckets in hand as I pulled into the parking lot off 5000 N Rd. Although I have been to Mazonia about 6 times in the last 5 years, I am still finding my way around the overgrown landscape of the park. I started out with an area I had been to before, and had some early success. Unfortunately, I followed that by wandering off to explore a new area, lugging my heavy bucket through heavy brush for 2 hours with almost no success. That (and the fact that I was in the early stages of a head cold) led me to taking it easy in the afternoon. I was only able to add a few more concretions to my bucket, but the sun did peek out briefly towards the end of the day resulting in some lovely panoramas from up on top of a ridge. I was able to chat briefly with another fossil hunter when I got back to the parking lot about the joys and tribulations of fossil hunting at Mazonia- we discussed the hard work necessary in order to have a chance to open an incredible window into a 300 million year old world, and how we wouldn't trade that chance for anything. I finished the day at the former tipple on the western side of the park, wide open ridges of dumped waste from the former mine that remain inhospitable to plant life to this day. It is an alien looking world, and usually has not been a great spot for finding fossils. However, it is easy to access at least and I was actually happy to come across a few rough bark impressions in sandstone that I picked up. The sun was getting low, so I decided to call it a day. I only collected about 1 1/2 gallons of concretions, but I was still glad I could get out to the park and find something. I will put my finds in the next post.
  20. Byrozoan of some sort?

    Only found one like this in my area, know what it might be? Thanks a lot! (Sorry inches is all I have measurement wise)
  21. Carboniferous plant suggestions

    This should be an easy one for the plant people here. I'm looking for some suggested id's for this Pennsylvanian/Bashkirian/Namurian plant fragment. Length is 10cm or 4 inches. I find lots of fragments of these which I usually ignore but haven't seen the bifurcating pattern in the lower part of the picture before. I hope that will make id easier.
  22. Rock or fossil

    Hey guys! Total newb here, I was hunting for some Pennsylvanian brachs when I found these strange looking circular halves.(they don’t go together) Could they be fossils or are they just plain old rocks? My vote is just plain rocks.
  23. I knew it was going to snow today, so I thought that I would go out yesterday to a Pennsylvanian roadcut that has matrix from the Bond Formation exposed near Oglesby, Illinois. I did not spend much time there, put it was nice to be out. The area still has a lot of snow cover because it sits in the shade most of the day and there will even have more since we are getting 2-3”. Besides some brachiopods that I found, I also found this Cladodont Tooth that was on the bottom of a piece that I picked up. Though not complete, I still like it. Thanks to @deutscheben and @Peat Burns for the ID.
