    Fossilized seashell?

    I found this seashell in the Netherlands and it seems to have parts in it that are fully stone, but others are lustrous. Is this fossilized, modern or is there such a thing as semi fossilized? Thank you!

    Sea shell fossils

    I have been having this fossil since when I was a kid. I found it in a very remote place. On top of a very tall mountin 2400 m above sea level Tomorri Mountain National Park city of Berat, Albania. What this sea shell fossil is doing here, I kept asking myself and locals for years and I have heard stories that other people have found sea shell fossils as well. For the very first time after 20 years of having this fossil I am sharing with you all. When I moved to NY in 2016 I brought it with me as my treasure haha.

    Found at North Myrtle Beach

    Hey everyone! I found this interesting piece of seashell at North Myrtle Beach almost a month ago and I still can’t figure it out! I’ve been trying to scratch it but can’t because it’s really hard and the things I’ve been scratching it with (seashell, coin, etc.) has been coming off onto the mysterious object. It was found in between the afternoon so like 1-2 pm and it was at North Myrtle Beach . Can anyone help me?
  4. I went to a geo-park which has a popular hiking trail. This park is known for fossils and it's in Odenwald, Germany. I found these 3 rocks in the forest in the said hiking trail and I was wondering what they are and if they are fossils? If not fossils, what are they? The first three pictures are of the first piece. To me, this looks a bit like a seashell. The next two pictures are of the second piece, and it has strange markings and inclusions. The last two pictures are of the third piece I found. This looks almost man-made but it's a rock and very h

    Plant fossil? Brachiopod?

    I found these hiking in Odenwald, Germany, where I found other fossils too. Pic 1-2 : no idea what this is. Help is appreciated. Pic 3-5 : is this a brachiopod? Does anyone know what kind? Pic 6: this looks a bit like some plant fossils I saw for sale so I was wondering: is this a plant fossil? Or are they random marks? They aren't coming off if I scrub them.

    Seashells in flint?

    Hi! I recently found these pieces of flint on the Thames foreshore (London) which look like they have seashells in them. The banded areas are raised/textured to the touch. Are these fossil seashells and if so, does anyone know what type they are or how old they might be? Thank you!

    Finding Shell and coral

    Yes, When I am hunting mammal and shark fossils, sometimes I must dig thru broken shell layer and at the end of such days, my fingers are cut up.. So found an interesting Bivalve and very near it a self standing coral.. The Bivalve is an attention grabber, and looks like it has been crushed. I would like ALL viewpoints, but figure @MikeR and @Cocoshould be flagged. As I indicated, I believe I was within the Florida's Chattahoochee Formation.

    Shell Surprise in NJ Cretaceous brook

    Found this little clam type full mold in NJ Cretaceous stream (not Big Brook). First time I've found a shell mold like this there. Reminds me of the Coquina clams in the undertow along the Jersey beaches in the summer. Any info on what it's nomenclature may be? Fun highlight of the day outside of the common shark teeth.
  10. My wife and I celebrated her birthday last night at a local restaurant on the beach. It was lovely. The Inn & Restaurant have been in existence for over 120 years, and in the lobby have a seashell exhibit filled with shells that were found about 100 years ago. I noticed some incrustations on a Turkey Wing sea shell that I did not recognize... I am hopeful some one can easily identify, so I can check out what they looked like as fossils. @digit @MikeR @Coco Thanks , Jack
  11. I made this a few years ago and I'm not sure if I shared it with the group or not. Its something I came up with and thought it would be cool to frame and hang near my desk. Its not fancy and the verbiage might not be precise but I think you get the Idea Besides fossils, I collect specimen grade seashells, minerals, skulls, and artifacts (I include artifacts into Natural History). I made/printed one off for each collection. Happy Collecting!

    Hello all, this an amazing forum for those to learn from one another and have the opportunity to see wonderful find they would not otherwise have the pleasure of viewing while gaining knowledge. That being said, my 8 year old loves fossils and came across his very first personal find in Texas. By chance can anyone assist with any insight on the details of the fossil? Thank you!!!!

    New Member - Fossil Finds?

    Hi guys, I've found the website while searching for information about some possible fossils I found around where I live in over several years. I pictured those and hopefully someone here is able to put a name / species / period to them. I am not a collector. I have always been fasciniated by geology, rocks and natural history. Knowing what they are will be very exciting for me. Number 1 : I cannot reemember where exactly I found it but should be some 100km's inland from Aegean sea, close by an ancient city called Pergamon in Modern Turkey. I was simply wal

    Florida Fossil Shell ID Needed

    This fossil shell was found on Marco Island beach (Naples, Florida). Any help identifying what it is would be greatly appreciated.

    Possible shell fossil?

    Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum! My name is Patricia and I live in Portugal, Europe. I found this item which seems to be fossilized and I was hoping you could help me confirm this suspicion of mine and possibly ID it aswell. It is totally made of rock but it seems like it has the form of a conch shell. I found it in Portugal, Algarve, at the beach of Portimão. As you can see it's about 4 cm long. Thanks for your time!

    Help with Seashell with holdfast

    It's Dave again, looking for help with this one Thanks everyone!
  17. Hi all, I found this sea shell by a Malaysia beach. It was unusual in that of the thousands and thousands of "fresh-looking" shells around, this one looked incredibly old and felt more rock like than shell like. A museum staff examined this and concluded it is a Murex shell that's at best Pleistocene-aged but he admitted he isn't a specialist in sea shells. I asked the FB group, Fossil Seashells and got the following answers: 1) Chicoreus brunneus - Max 15 years - Fossils are found deep in sediments or on land in sediments, definitely NOT Fossil 2) Some scie

    More fossil? Bivalves from Milnerton

    Hi all, I found those bivalves on Milnerton beach (Cape Town, South Africa). The beach is known to have fossil shark teeth and whale bones, but I don't know if they have fossil seashells. They do have modern ones. Those shells, because of many different features, do make me think that they are fossil. Anyways, I'm interested in 2, if not 3 things: • Species • Fossil or modern • (if fossil) how old If this species is (locally) extinct, then I think I can quite confidently put them down as fossil, but otherwise I'm not sure. The things that make me think t

    Fossil or really worn shell?

    Hi! So I found a shell one of my old friends gave me when I was a child and I remember he told me this was a very old shell, I'm curious if this is a modern shell thats just really worn or if it's a fossil. I don't know enough to be able to tell myself sadly. Thank you!
  22. Happy New Year everyone! I found this awesome little star-like fossil on a Tampa Bay beach in Florida. It's about an inch wide and has crystals in the center. It has a volcano look with grooves and appears to be a mold of something, but what? Thanks in advance.
  23. Hi everyone, I found this fossilized seashell in Tarpon, Florida on a fossilized shell trail. Original formation unknown. It looks almost complete and has great ornamentation and detail. It has 2 boreholes that penetrated just the surface of the shell. It is approximately 1 3/4" x 1 3/4". Can you ID it? Many thanks in advance.
  24. I have recently found a fossil of Conus seashell in Macedonia, in the region of Shtip, to be precise. I want to know what is the ID of this fossil. Can anyone help me to indentify it? Thanks in advance.
