  1. I know I'm not the only one that doesn't live near good fossil deposits, which means that i'm not the only one that has to buy or trade fossils from time to time to build the collection. I thought it would be fun to have an ongoing thread to share our latest great score that we didn't personally find in nature, a thread to share your latest fossil purchase or trade. Let's see what you found at the local fossil show, online or anywhere else other than in the ground.
  2. So today was a long day in the making, but it was “make a shark tooth display” craft day for my 15-year-old daughter and I. We both dive for teeth together, but all these were purchased (most from places or depths I don’t want her diving at). Shells were some that we collected from Sanibel Island years ago. My daughter was giggly about it the whole time and after a few iterations here are the results. We do have a couple more teeth coming that will finish it off. For the big Meg, I drilled a hole in a piece of Colorado petrified wood that we collected together and put in the Me

    Mom bought this in Quartzsite

    Hi there! My mom bought this fossil a few weeks ago while visiting Quartzsite, AZ, and she lost the card that she had the vendor write the ID on...it looks aquatic to me, and my initial thought was an anemone of some sort, but that's as far as I've gotten and I am by no means an expert sooo ^u^; Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much <3
  4. This question came to me after thinking about a few fossils I bought online a little while ago (trilobite, fish). Are these types of fossils normally coated with anything to protect them from the environment, or is that something for the purchaser to do?

    My largest ammonite so far

    Bought this from a client. From Morocco I assume, 12.5 cm wide and 20 mm at it's deepest point, and polished. But how do I attribute it?

    Fossil Plant?

    Hi, what is the identification of this fossil in my collection. It seems like a very good specimen.

    Unidentified Fossils

    I bought these fossils a few months ago form a small rock shop in southern Utah, they were found in an assorted basket of small fossils likely bought in bulk along with ray barbs, gar scales, shark teeth, puffer mouth plates, barracuda teeth and shark verts. the store owner did not know what they were nor the location they were found. my guess would be the Chandler bridge Formation but I'm not sure. Looking for I identification if anyone knows what these are?
  8. On another forum I found pictures of holders for pinned insect photos. A commercial made foam filled ball and home made ones to stick a pined insect onto or with spring clips. I had this cracked ball water valve going to recycle. I sprayed it with liquid wrench, put in the bench vice and a large pipe wrench to remove the end. I had the foam so now have the 1 1/8th inch ball mount, cost free! The idea is to be able to rotate an item ever so slightly as needed to take pictures of different parts of it. Not a display stand. Please show your holders.

    Possible Ray Plate and Tooth?

    DISCLAIMER: most of these pictures are pretty bad. But I feel these specimen are so well known that it is easy to tell what they are at least the genus. So I went to a rock shop with fossils (Actually landed a job there now.) They had this selection of fossils and I grabbed all that I thought fit. (they had no labels) I was able to identify some of these but others I wanted some input. 1. I believe this is a fish. Probably knightia from Wyoming (as its the cheapest and most common) however in the quality it is in, I'm sure I'll only wonder. 2. both pictures are of th

    Shark tooth need help with

    Purchased at a fair today since I won't be getting out for a month or so to get my itch. Need help with ID as I'm a noob. I'm thinking either Lemon, Mako, or Great White but could be completely wrong. was purchased with a Trilobite just to start the collection going. Thanks for all help.

    Some shark teeth ID

    Today, my package arrived. A pile of 1000 shark teeth have arrived and there are some Megalodon teeth and some Makos and Angustiden and some tiger shark teeth. But I have a few I am not sure about. Is this a Megalodon tooth? I have no information about where these are found but could this be a Angustiden or even a chubutensis?

    I have no clue

    This recently came with my pile of shark teeth that I bought which inluded Megalodon teeth and tiger shark teeth etc.... But I also found this and it seems to have some Pyrite on it and I have no clue what it is, I don't know where it's from. Any thoughts?

    Megalodon tooth damage?

    So the other day I was at a doctors appointment with my wife and when she was seeing the doctor I went on an on-line auction site and thought I would look around to see what was for sale. I came across the below Megalodon tooth that was a "Buy it Now". The tooth was 4 5/16" in length and the serrations and tip were nice. I was going to keep looking at the other items, but I then thought that I saw something on the blade. I zoomed up on the pic and it appeared to show signs that this tooth came in contact with another of its teeth, leaving serration scars on the tooth in 2 places, so i decided
