Port Huron, Michigan trip
SilurianSalamander posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsI drive 8 hours with a friend to a location he remembers from his childhood as yielding a lot. Oh boy it did. 100% worth the drive. Lake Huron, among the agates, pyrite, yooperlite, has some extraordinary Devonian fossils. All fossils were collected from the beach of his family’s property except for the fenestelid bryozoan, which was found at a gas station on the way there. please enjoy this collection of gastropods, petoskey stones, various tabulate corals, crinoids, stromatoporoids, bivalves, Brachiopods, tenteculites, horn corals, an unidentified agatized fossil in jasper matrix

Moose Man posted a topic in Fossil IDRelevant info first: This was found in Petoskey Michigan while looking for Petoskey stones. It was found in partially buried in sand. It is quite large and rather heavy. As pictured in picture 5, there is some sort of opening at the end? I can't get a very good picture of the inside, it's hard to get light where i need it and take a picture. the hole looks to maybe be about a 1/2 mm deep, and less than that wide. I took to reddit, albeit with less detailed photos and was told it was a straight shelled nautiloid cephalopod from the paleozoic, and that it was a brevicone, which I'm hoping someon

Looking For Fossils In Michigan
its.just.alec posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsIt has become a yearly tradition of mine to visit the upper part of Michigan's lower peninsula, around the Gaylord and Traverse Bay areas, for vacation with my family, and I often spend time looking for fossil in the area, mainly Hexagonaria/Petoskey stones, but for some reason they are far and few between. During my time in the area, I have also found a chunk of limestone containing what appears to be the glabella of a trilobite surrounded by what appears to be large, crystalized corals, possibly a Heliophyllum or similar rugose coral, a smaller piece of the same coral, and what seems to be t
Shark tooth in Lake Michigan
ModernJames posted a topic in Fossil IDHey everyone! I was exploring a private beach next to a graveyard in Petoskey, Mi.

Let me know what you guys think! Thank you so much. James Carden Here's another look at the same stone dry: Larger picture of everything I found:
Hexogonaria Coral??? Found in British Columbia..
tratru posted a topic in Fossil IDI found this whils diving in British Columbia...I have been all around this lake, and only found this type of stone in one area...still not sure what it is. However, I had seen petoskey coral un cut, and it seems to be similar?? But, further reading says it ONLY exists in Michigan. The "pits are on both sides and are about 1/4 " to .25 of an inch deep...
Is this a petoskey stone? I'm familiar with what they look like but this one is hard to tell. It could quite possibly be a petoskey with a smaller pattern, but I can't quite tell. And yes, it was found in northern lower Michigan. (Frankfort, Michigan)
