  1. Hey everyone, I’m new to the forum but loved fossils all my life and recently got into building a nice collection. I have a chance to acquire a very nice Ammolite Ammonite at a decent price. I’m curious though are they more desirable in or out of the matrix? The one I’m considering has lovely colors including blue and purple and is out of the matrix. Was just curious before spending that kind of coin if I should consider in matrix. Thanks in advance! Lee
  2. I bought this mosasaur tooth from a gift shop for a really cheap price, is it fake?
  3. I have 300$ for a fossil, and i don't know what is better to buy: a dinosaur tooth (diplodocus/camarasaurus), or a good trilobite (like huntonia from Oklahoma). What do you think?

    Fossil Auctions

    Hi everyone, I've been looking for a site that might auction fossils off. I've found a few, that will go unnamed, but they were plagued with issues ranging from unreasonable shipping fees to inauthenticity. I have seen here various members discussing an unnamed large fossil auction sites, and am wondering if anyone could please PM that to me, or any other site they may suggest? Thank you!

    Horn/claw/Tusk lot ID

    I have posted this pic on another thread but still would love any info about it. I have the opportunity to get this at a pretty low price. I am not experienced enough but it seems like these can be some really great dinosaur claw/horn/tusk fossils but I have no experience at all with dino fossils. If someone can help with the nautilus will help aswell if I want to ultimately purchase this lot. Sorry to have been asking a lot of IDs lately! I appreciate anything!
  6. Good Evening, After one failed attempt of procuring an authentic Megaladon tooth and the money lost, I’m ready to resume attempts of purchasing a genuine specimen. Can you advise on a reputable location, store or website where I can now purchase an authentic megaladon tooth? I am very wary of scams, fake teeth, concrete molds, lead injection, etc. Support appreciated.

    A few fossil IDs before purchase.

    I hope its okay for me to ask for a few IDs before buying fossils. Here they are. With the lot with a lot, I see the nautilus shell is a cool buy and adds value to the lot. But I am unsure if the rest are cool fossils, or just some modern day horns and bones. To me it looks alot of modern stuff. Thanks for the help guys. Lately, just been buying some collection pieces while im stuck in quarantine :).
  8. Having bought fossils for years, I noticed that fossils are photographed or measured in a way that might exaggerate their sizes. Such methods include: 1 - Pinching their fingers or creasing their palms to create a small rise for the fossil 2 - Zooming in specifically on the fossil (Good to show details, but not good for size judging) 3 - Using a small hand, e.g. a child or woman's hand 4 - Giving a "by the curve" measurement instead of the straight line. E.g. a 4-incher tooth is in fact 3-inch if measured on the straight line As an ex
  9. Hi all, a friend of mine has lost a fossil of almost $1,000 in value because the parcel was delivered to a different address (in the same country) even though he had a tracking code. The local postal company claimed that they delivered to the address as stated on the parcel and the tracking code. They refuse to tell my friend which address they sent to as that is confidential information. The seller meanwhile stated he wrote down the address exactly as my friend specified, and that he checked my friend's online and Paypal as well to triple confirm that was the correct address.
  10. I've noticed that two popular websites seem to be selling the same fossil. Thoughts? Edit: I've edited the images to remove any identifiable information, but they are well-known sellers.

    Bulk Megalodon Teeth

    Hello, I have been fixing Megalodon shark teeth for a little while now and I was wondering if anyone knew of someone that has a lot of big broken Megalodon teeth for sale. I have checked on eBay but everyone there is a little expensive. Thanks for any help
  12. Hi everyone! So it has been a busy week for me, as I have things to post but haven't found the time. I just got back from Gemworld 2017 and I would like you opinion on my one and only purchase. I went to the show with the mindset that if I bought anything at all it had to be something special. I normally do not buy fossils. So after walking around and looking at many interesting specimens, what caught my eye was a Cretodus crassidens tooth from South Dakota in matrix. I have wanted one of these for awhile. The tooth is pretty nice. It is all intact. But there are two cracks which run though t
  13. I watched a youtube video on a fossil collection someone had purchased, and someone in the comment section actually said something like "buying fossils is for (expletive). I go out in 110 degrees and work all day to find mine". I thought "wow! do people really think like that?". So is there some unsaid rule that people who dig their own fossils are somehow cooler or tougher than those who buy them? I don't have any accessible fossil sites near me. My collecting career was limited to a few months I spent in southwestern New Mexico. I was then in an accident from which I'
  14. Is there a good source for bulk fossil material from different locations around the world?
  15. Hi, this is my first time posting as I am new to the forum. I am considering buying a Woolly Mammoth Tusk for Christmas, but I do not know how to know if it is a real or a good quality item. Would you all be able to provide your guidance? It says cracks near the base have been filled with glue. It says it is the tip of a larger tusk. It says it is 23" long, circumference is 8" and weighs 4 pounds. It says the species is Mammuthus Primigenius (woolly mammoth), location Belovo, Kemerovo oblast, southwestern Siberia in Russia, Age 22,000 years old. Also, if you could provide names of good
  16. I want to get a megalodon tooth as a gift for my friend, but I have no idea about which sights are reputable, what to look for in a megalodon tooth, or what appropriate prices might be. What I do know for sure about what I want is that I want it to be 4"+, still sharp, and I have a price cap of $170. I've seen that some sights advertise that the enamel of the teeth they sell have been ground for a polish. I would prefer the tooth I buy to not be ground to a polish, but I don't know what the consequences of not grinding them might be. I should add that neither me, nor my friend, has really own
