    East Berlin Fm. Hunting

    Hi everybody, today I took a trip to 2 sites in the East Berlin Formation. I didn't find anything too spectacular, but there was lots of really cool geological features. This first site is a roadcut in the formation, I believe that I found a sea bed imprint? I'm not sure on it though. Some views of the area I checked out The possible sea bed piece, I'll get a better photo soon. The Second Site View of the site from the pull off The black shale spot, there seems to be multiple differen
  2. The Green River Formation is one of the most well-known fossil sites in the world, occupying present-day Colorado, Utah and Wyoming. This Lagerstätte has been noted for its well-preserved fish fossils, as well as numerous invertebrates, plants, and sometimes even reptiles and birds. Green River fossils are Eocene-aged, at 53.5 to 48.5 million years old. Thankfully, not only are Green River fossils attractive, they also remain affordable to the casual collector. Allow me to present my humble collection. Crocodile tooth Borealosuchus sp. Southwest Wyoming

    Unusual Carboniferous Plant Fossil

    Howdy! This specimen comes from the Pennsylvanian Period, Conemaugh Group, Glenshaw Formation, in the Mason Shales below Brush Creek Limestone. The area has a lot of Pecopteroids, Neuropteroids and Calamites. However, I've been informed that it is not Calamites. I should also note that this piece was part of a larger fossil cast that was crumbling apart when I found it, and unfortunately, I was unable to save the rest of it. The last picture is the back side. All help is appreciated and thanks in advance!

  5. Upon doing some research on exposures near Great Falls, and from a tip I received from a fellow member of my local prospector's group, I found an exposure just outside of Belt that is somewhat known for its plant fossils. Roadside Geology of Montana has this area of the state marked as early Cretaceous, but the large Jurassic coal seam cutting through the middle of this exposure was apparent as soon as I parked. I scrambled up the loose shale and sandstone to the seam, where I almost immediately began to spot small impressions in the dark-gray shale.
  6. Hi all, I’m excited to be going on a field trip with a a group in Illinois (ESCONI) later this month to a site that has a huge mound of mined-up Pennsylvanian shale. There may be some carbon-film plant impressions there. I’ve never collected this type of fossil before, and I’ve heard that carbon films can disappear quickly when exposed to the air. My question is should I bring something to coat this type of fossil? And if so, what? In doing some research, I see that some people recommend spray-on Krylon while others recommend against it. Would brushing on a thin coat of Paraloid do t
  7. This was, essentially, a quick scouting trip based on threads on the Forum. Don't know much about these fossils but wanted to confirm the location and density of Pennsylvanian (Llewellyn Formation, 308-300 MYA) plant fossils from coal mine tailings near Mt. Carmel, PA. (NOT St. Claire, which is closed to collectors). There were abundant specimens, many bearing evidence of pyrite replacement: orange stems and plant hash. There was also some evidence of pyrite replacement by pyrophyllite to yield silver-colored films. Against the black matrix, the silver-film plant fossils are beautiful and,

  9. Hi! My 6 year old is very interested in fossils so we took a trip to Rhode Island today to see if we could find anything at a shale beach. Might anyone be able to help ID the following? We aren’t sure and would love to be able to help him determine if he found something, and if so what it might be. My googling is coming up empty handed, and we just started our learning journey. Thanks so much!

    More Pennsylvanian Plants of PA

    A few weeks ago @Jeffrey P and I met up in Eastern Pennsylvania to collect plant material in the Late Pennsylvanian Llewellyn Formation. We started our day at Centralia and then made our way to another site. I have visited Centralia a few times now but Jeff had never been there before. Our hope was to find Jeff a nice Trigonocarpus seed but unfortunately our efforts did not come up with anything. The pickings at Centralia were rather slim. However, we did see in-situ a large segment of Stigmaria ficoides root with rootlets. I ended up only keeping a few finds. The firs

    Excursion to Cory's Lane

    Hi everyone, I just want to start off the post by thanking @Bguild, @Fossildude19, and @Pagurus for their Cory's Lane post a while back, it really helped me with my trip there. Corys Lane is on a beach in Rhode Island, the view is absolutely incredible towards the end of the day. I visited towards the end of the day because of the tides. The area I was having the most luck at would be completely underwater by the time high tide came around. Speaking of which, I sampled different heights and areas of the locality, and I found that breaking the shale closest to the beach floor (and

    Blue Beach, Nova Scotia - Seeking ID (Plant)

    Hi there. I saw this I saw this at Blue Beach in Nova Scotia, Canada. It was loose on the beach, closer to the edge of the cobble towards the water. Also, I'm new to fossils, and only took this 1 pic (I left this fossil on the beach). The plant matter imprint along the bottom is approx 5.5 cm long. Thanks for your help with this.

    Possible Horsetail Fossil?

    Recently I found this plant fossil at the Late Triassic aged Blackstone Fm, Queensland, Australia. I think it’s a horsetail but I’m not certain.

    Swirling lines found in rock

    I've been finding fossils in limestone, sometimes I find fossils in rock that also appears to have these irregular lines interspersed. They are all shapes and sizes, I’ve attached some pictures. I am just curious as to what these are. Carbonized plant material? Or just inclusions in the rock?
  23. Hi! I work at a children's museum in Tennessee, and we go out to local elementary schools and teach science lessons. One of them is on fossils... how they form, how they are found, what they can tell us about life in the past, etc. I have been tasked with organizing our materials for this particular lesson to give to our new teachers. In cleaning out some bins, I found the fossils I have attached below. I have no idea where the museum got them, but my feeling is they have been in our possession a while. I would really like to attach a name to these fossils, what the date range

    Pennsylvanian Plant ID Help

    On Saturday I took a trip to collect some Late Pennsylvanian plant material from the Llewellyn Formation of Pennsylvania. I am still working through my finds and identifying everything, but as an initial matter I had a question about two pieces. I have a guess on what they can be and was hoping someone might be able to confirm my suspicions. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you! First, I believe that this fossil preserves the cell structure of a Calamites stem Second, are these the terminal shoots of Asterophyllites? Unfortunately some of it broke in transport b
