    saskatchwean corals? 2/3

    2/3 found these on shore of Lake Diefenbaker in Saskatchewan, Canada. looked to be eroded from sandy deposits with layers of harder iron-rich rusty strata. the fossils themselves are heavy, mineralized with iron and then rusted? corals? all the same type or different? i think this is in cretaceous age but not sure. see other 2 posts these specimens are larger, very heavy. like solid iron, looks like outer textured surface mineralized and inner cavity separate - looks like central tubular structure did not mineralized (still sandy) in one pic (could scrape out with toothpick)

  10. Rather than displaying my eggs in a bog standard display case, I have a vague idea to display them on a bed of sand/matrix/gravel --- either looking like they are just being excavated or arranged almost like a small nest with a few plastic plants and things to make it look a bit like a nest site. But would the sand eventually damage/wear away the fossils over time? If not, would wrapping the lower half (in contact with the matrix) in some thin, clear plastic be enough protection while they sit in the sand/matrix? Think it'd make for an interesting looking fossil display, if I can
  11. As the winter this year is not very harsh, on Saturday I ventured to a location quite close to my home - I learned about it during the last fossil fair It's a sand pit - well, sort of, as it extracts sand from the bottom of the Vistula River - and according to the fossil seller who told me about it, it is the place where one can find Pleistocene fossils. We were warned to stay clear of the pipes, because of falling stones, but we were allowed to browse the piles of whatever was filtered out from the sand
  12. So, I've been hunting sharks teeth on and off in South Alabama since a young child. Since my two kids have gotten self sufficient, me and the wife have been taking alot of trips to the river to look for teeth. Finding the normal small teeth, for our area, got me to wondering if there were bigger teeth in our area. That led me to some late nights of researching the ins and outs of my area. The area we are close to has alot of Eocene era fossils and I quickly learned the Carcharocles auriculatus was THE SHARK during this time period. So, my goal became to find a complete tooth in my little honey

    Unknown Find from San Pedro California

    A member of my monthly bug chat group is trying to figure out what this might be and I offered to post it here to get some ideas. It was dug from a hillside in San Pedro, where clams and crabs were also found. My best guess is the formation is Pleistocene Palos Verdes Sand. They have shown it to the ichthyology sections of the LA County Natural History Museum and seem to have ruled out it came from a fish. My best guess is maybe some sort of coprolite? However, its huge and I also wouldn't rule out some sort of human made artifact.
  14. Hello, I have a bit of an odd piece, it's not a fossil, it's a scorpion! The scorpion was in its burrow in a dune when the dune collapsed, I would like to stabalize the sand, so that I can display it. This isn't a particularly important find, so I wouldn't mind if it broke in the process. Keep in mind, I have very limited materials.
  15. Found this while digging in my backyard in Southern California. More specifically, Cerritos, which is just a few miles north east of Long Beach. I uncovered a whole layer of interesting rocks, a huge chunk of breccia, shale, sandstone, and even a ~2 in. long quartz, but this one actually looks like a coral to me. I can add close ups if necessary.

    Fossil hunting after rainfall

    Yesterday we had heavy rainfall in Charleston. Rainfall is of course one of the natural elements that erodes the material surrounding fossils. We know that some fossils become exposed to the earths surface due to rain. In Charleston, good areas to search after a hard rain are shores, river edges, creeks, gravel beds, and excavation sites. Dredge piles are also good search areas. There is a particular area on Folly Beach which has a significant amount of dredge material. It would be a good area to search today or tomorrow at low tide. I suggest you search here between 10am and 2pm (low tide). T

    Tube-like objects found on CA beach

    Hi all! I’m hoping to solve a mystery. I find these objects pretty regularly along the San Mateo coast of Northern California. I’m not even sure they’re fossils, but the bluffs above the beach are part of the Purisima Formation with plenty of fossils from the late Miocene to early Pleistocene so I thought it would be worth a try. They look to be made of compacted sand, like a concrete, but laid down in layers, with a more robust top with lines that have some shell-like material. Most pieces I found have this triangular shape that look like they might have formed tubes. All the pieces I’v

    Pleistocene fossils

    Hello, I bought these two Pleistocene fossils today at the fossil fair - but the seller was not sure what kind of animal they come from. The first one is 10 cm long: Picture with a flash: The second one is 15 cm long: Pictures with a flash: Can anyone help me ID these? They come from Vistula River sands, Pleistocene age. Thanks a lot

    Mystery item found in western ND

    Hi everyone, I came across this object earlier this evening and I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out what it is. It was found embedded in a soft rock (soft enough to scrape away large chunks with a pocket knife) with just a small cross-section exposed. It first grabbed my attention because it appears round and hollow in cross-section, and was a different color and harder than the surrounding material. The rock it was found in was at the top of a hill, and located in western North Dakota, just barely across the border from Montana. My friend and I tried to brainstorm what it
