    Russian(?) Ammonite ID Help

    Hello, I'd love some identification help on this lil ammonite fossil I purchased at the Tucson Gem Show. The dealers were Russian and all the info I could get was that the ammonites were Russian as well It is a bit pyritized. I bought 2, I used the larger one to make a mold and cast. The original did not survive the process so I have included pics of the cast (the one with the loop added, lol), I think it's easier to see details on that as well. Additionally, if you have any rec's for online or in print resources for ammonite ID they would be much appreciated. I found myself googl

    I do not have any specific formation or location information other than that these are from Russia.

    Pliosuar tooth russia

  11. I just had the opportunity to purchase a kimberella fossil for a good price but backed out at the last second because the seller was based in Russia and I wasn't sure about the legality surrounding White Sea specimens being imported to Canada where I live. I'm always wary of fossils being sold out of China and Russia. Has anyone purchased White Sea specimens directly from Russia? And what is the legality of them? It's hard to find a direct answer online.

    From the album: My Collection

  13. Hello everyone!)) Need help of paleontologists and paleoichthyologists with identification of eocene shark teeth from Russia. I'm not professional, just a fan and rooky, so I choose possible species options for every tooth, according to books and scientific publications which I have. Hope I make right something at least. Be glad and thankful if somebody will help me figure it out)).

  15. My Jurassic Park now heads across the pond to England and Germany. Dinosaur material from these countries is not common like North America and in fact very difficult to obtain. Theropod material is extremely rare and most remains are fragments. Most of my material from England comes from the coast of two areas The Isle of Wight and East Sussex. Material from these area comprises the Wealden Super Group (Hasting+Wealden+Weld Clay) and is early Cretaceous from the Valanginian to Barremian Stage (140-125mya). Yellow - Hasting Group , Green - Weald Clay Red - Wealden Grouip
  16. I recently acquired two Cretaceous lamniform shark teeth that I'm trying to identify. The first one, from Russia, was sold as Cardabiodon sp., but I'm curious if that's correct or if it's something else. The second tooth, from Texas, didn't come with an ID. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide! #1 - Cardabiodon? sp. This tooth is from the Cenomanian of Russia and was found near Fedorovka Village, Tambov Region. The tooth measures 28.51 mm on the slant and 14.91 mm at its widest across the root. #2 - Unidentified

    Gastropod from russia

    I found this fossil gastropod on an auction site and I really liked it. But the information is a bit confusing. On the title it states that it is Cretaceous but in the description of the seller it says "Cretaceous-Oxfordian-160 MYA". Oxfordian is a period from the Jurassic, not the Cretaceous. The locality & species (theres 2 species) Location: Kostroma Region Russia Species: Pictavia laevigata & Exelissa quinariia .

    Rovno Amber (Mezhigorje Fm., 33.9-28.1 Ma)

    From the album: Fossil Amber and Copal: Worldwide Localities

    Two pieces, roughly weighing 7 and 4 grams respectively. Both are mined from the Rivne region of Ukraine's Rivne Oblast, and had a little to no oxidized layer, in comparison to amber mined from the nearby (roughly 50 km) Klesiv Deposit.

    Rovno Amber (Mezhigorje Fm., 33.9-28.1 Ma)

    From the album: Fossil Amber and Copal: Worldwide Localities

    Roughly 12g specimen of amber mined from the Klesiv Deposit of the Rivne region in the Rivne Oblast of Ukraine. It was originally coated in a 2mm red oxidized crust, typical of this locality. It is believed that the presence of this crust is an indicator that amber from this particular locality underwent little to no re-deposition throughout its diagenesis, and oddly contains the majority of described insect-included Rovno material.

    Rovno Amber (Mezhigorje Fm., 33.9-28.1 Ma)

    From the album: Fossil Amber and Copal: Worldwide Localities

    19.0g specimen of hand-polished amber from the Rivne region of Ukraine. It contains numerous botanical debris, although I have not observed any definitive insect inclusions. It is what would be termed a "run"; this specimen has over 12 successive layers that would have run down the side of the tree (the depicted piece would be properly-oriented if rotated 90˚).

    Rovno Amber (Mezhigorje Fm., 33.9-28.1 Ma)

    From the album: Fossil Amber and Copal: Worldwide Localities

    83.8g raw amber mined from the Rivne region in Ukraine. The "eye hole" was likely formed when the organic matter (i.e., tree branch) the resin encased, was likely dissolved/washed away during the resin's diagenesis and redeposition (Baltic and most Rovno material is generally believed to have been redeposited).

    Some fossils from Russia

    Hey guys, My name is Alex, I'm from Moscow, Russia. I'm extremely amateur in paleontology so can you please help me to identify some fossils from my collection. I found these fossils about 20 years ago in a small sand quarry 130 km west from Moscow. If you search in google maps the nearest train station is: o.p. 133 km, nearest villlage is Blagoveshchenskoye and Kozino. The fossils were maybe about 2-4 meters deep in the ground (I actually don't remember). The dimension of the first fossil (black one) is 2.4x0.8 cm, the second (grey) is 3.7x2.3 cm. I've always really wanted to know
