  1. Found a nice hot spot for amber:)
  2. I had just recently finished polishing a piece of petrified wood I found, and I just read a topic that included a polished pyritized Yorkshire cannonball ammonite, which got me thinking about all the types of fossils that can be polished. I did a search on the forum for a "Show us your" polished fossils thread and couldn't find any so decided to start one as I'm interested to see the diversity of fossils that have been polished. So... Show us your Polished Fossils!

    Chance to buy 5 Orthoceras

    An acquaintance has offered these 5. Worth the money or are there better for same outlay? His photos of 3 elongated and 2 egg shaped.

    Gastrolith? Artifact?

    Hello all, I can’t figure this one out! I was collecting fossils from a highly yielding site in Peace River. In this little section of gravel that I reached, it was almost entirely fossilized bone from dugong and whale and turtle. Nestled in the center of this pile of fossils, I uncovered this stone and was immediately taken aback. I have been rock and fossil hunting my entire life, and extensively in this state and this river, and I have never seen anything like this. I have an enormous and worldly collection of rocks and fossils, and I have never seen something this smooth naturally. I
  6. i received few minerals(sometimes sliced and polished) from a old collection mixed with fossils,mostly without name and location some are very easy to ID (I think),but i know nothing about minerals,if somebody could help?It would be very happy,this one seems to be for me kind of coprolithe,perhaps??? regards

    Questions about Petrified Wood

    I found all these pieces in arapahoe county Colorado. I’m not sure where I found #2 just in Colorado. I polished a couple of them, 10-16. Is it possible to determine type of wood or approximate age?
  11. I have an item that came to me as a gift, without provenance or description. What I know is that it was purchased in a small antique shop in North Carolina about ten years ago i think it *might* be fossil ivory, but can’t be certain. It looks like some photos I’ve seen of smaller mammoth/mastodon tusks, but it’s been so polished that the original surface is all but obliterated. the piece is 12” long, ~5” diameter at its widest and weighs about 8 pounds any ideas or pointers would be most welcome!
  12. I would like to buy more ammonites. I like ammonites without excessive alteration usually. Most of the white ammonites I see for sale are described as "polished" like the ones in the picture below. Are these just cleaned up, or is the shell actually damaged or altered in some way?

    Ammonite and ???

    Very nicely polished fossil from my parents estate. Ammonite on one end, but I don't know what the other end of the stone contains.

    Help with Ammonite ID

    Hi, I bought this ammonite at least 10 years ago and have completely forgot about it since then. It is rough on one side and cut and polished along the mid-line of the shell revealing the interior. I'm certain it is an ammonoid (vs a nautiloid) due to S shaped suture lines and outward curving septa. What I can't figure out is genus and locality of this ammonite. I think it's fair to say this is a mass produced ammonite from madagascar or morocco but I can't seem to find much on the marker currently to draw an association. I've attached some pics.. thanks for your help!

    Ammonite ID

    I was given this Ammonite as a gift. It came with no info as to where it was collected etc. Any ideas?

    Juvenile Ichthyosaur Hind Paddle

    From the album: Yorkshire Ichthyosaur Fossils

    A small but beautiful polished paddle from Port Mulgrave in Yorkshire.
  17. Here is a polished Ammonite from Timor. Ceratite type? (I think it is but I am still a newbie at these) Can someone help with an ID? I have a couple more, will wait for a later time to post.
  18. Does anybody know how I could go about obtaining some ammonites from Madagascar which haven't been polished? The polished ones are extremely common and very cheap, but very rarely do I see unpolished ones. I guess they are polished before they ever go on sale - but does anybody know where I might obtain some which are unpolished? Oh, and without the ends being ground flat would also be a bonus! Thanks.

    Chambered Nautilus

    From the album: Not Mine

    Nautilus pompilius, found somewhere in N. America, possibly central Georgia or coastal Virginia, approximately 7 inches long
  20. Hi all!, My first post ive recently discovered the joy of collecting fossills and am kicking myself for leaving it for so late. Purchased my first fossills recently and need your help with identifying species please. First one: Second one: From my very modest knowledge on fossils, i think they maybe cleoniceras.. ? I would love to get more details on species and region and period if possible. All that was in the Seller's description was cut and polished madasgan ammonite. Thanks so much!
  21. Okay, I would love to see other peoples Nautiloids and Ammonites that have been cut and polished. This little nautiloid below is the only thing Ive had cut and polished so far but I'm hoping to get some of the bigger nautiloids and some of the ammonites I found in the woodbine formation cut and polished soon.
