Hello all, Some photo's of my recent fossil hunting trips in the Netherlands (Limburg). All fossils are 73-66 and/or 73-69 million years old (late late Campanian, early Maastrichtien). Mainly belemnites (belemnitella and belemnella sp.), 3 sea urchin genus Echinocorys sp. (my girlfriends top find), one horse tooth (Equus sp.) a pipe and a bone (don't know species). Also on the first photo one trace fossil (ghost shrimp/crab) and one belemnite with holes. Kind regards, Fossilsforever
I have a few things I want to know about the fossil formations in general. Are there any formations located underground entirely and are undiscovered? Have we seen more evolved species disposited on top of another less evolved species? Thanks for any help
Hi all, I just got the studio equipped with a digital microscope, and I've been enjoying looking through the sediments of fossil prep work. I'm finding a lot of micro crystals, and other forms that seem like pollen, or microscopic life I also found 2 insects, which I'm not sure of their origin, they could be contamination from the room, but I'm fairly certain this batch came from caked-on sediments at the bottom of my sample container.
