  3. With pleasure I want to show you my collection of fossils - it's a work in progress. My first piece is this Lycoptera davidi from Western Liaoning, my brother's gift for my birthday. The plate is 13 centimeters long, the fish 8 centimeters long.

    Various fossils/possible fossils

    Various fossils/possibly contain fossils. From the Coleraine formation of northern Minnesota, mostly ironstone, I think, but one is in mudstone.

    Dinosaur egg

    I bought this from a woman whose husband collected. She had no nformation on it other than it was collected in the Mississippi region. It looks similar to some of the online photographs I have seen of dinosaur eggs. The outermost layer has a thin portion missing, like an egg shell. What do you think?

    Help to identify - Manchester, UK

    Was hoping someone could tell me what this is. I found it near a landslide at my local river Manchester UK, it really looks like some kind of petrified wasp nest to me, it's rock hard and maybe it could be some kind of shell? Any help appreciated thanks.

    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!

    Fossil or rock?

    I found this thing near the hoodoos in drumheller alberta and it doesn't look like any rock I've ever seen.

    Bone found in Venice, Florida

    I don’t believe it’s a dugong fossil as IIRC they don’t have hollow marrow areas. It was found away from the beach but around shells, the peace river formation isn’t stratified either way. The last picture may be a separate all together but was found in this cluster of bone, it looks like turtle shell I have seen. It’s on a napkin for scale but the large portion is about the length of my pinky. The shell object is about the size of a nickel. Because of the shell piece found within the bone cluster I’m imagining it could be a turtle humorous

    Weird backyard find

    Okay, when I say backyard, actually a creek bed just over the backyard fence. The creek is a main drainage of the Northwest flanks of Mt. Diablo in the SF Bay Area, CA, USA. Every winter rocks and boulders wash down the creek, so I cannot know the specific geological time zone, but we've found other fossils here (future posts coming). Looks like it could be fossil to me, and my imagination leads to thoughts of maybe fish? or mollusk? Figured it'd be worth a shot posting this up to see if anyone sees something identifiable. Thanks in advance! RCD

    Florida Pliocene Gastropod

    Anyone know what this is?
  21. Looking for some help on this shell specimen. It was part of a large rock and mineral collection I acquired not long ago but unlike the rocks and minerals this was not labeled, so I have no location info to offer. Thx in advance.
  22. Hello, I found this on a stroll near a rocky shore in Salem, Massachusetts. My questions: Are these simple shell fossils? or possibly vertabrae? any ideas on the minimum age? (how long it would take to turn into this) or the likely age? This is approximately 5.08 cm (2 inches) at its widest. It was found at surface level among many other rocks near a fairly well traveled tourist(y) spot. I realize this is probably overkill for what is almost assuredly a very common thing but I still find the little rock interesting.

    What's my fossil?

    I found this shell fossil in a creek located in Northeast Georgia. Can anyone tell what kind and how old it is? Is it common, rare or unusual? Any info would be awesome! Thank you.
  24. Hi. This fossil was found in the high desert east of Bend, Oregon, but is not likely from this area. Most of the fossils in this area are wood…I’ve never heard of anyone finding a shell. I found it placed next to a trail that is used daily by many people. I have no idea who left it or where it is from. The only photos I have found online that looked close were for a couple of New Zealand keyhole limpet fossils which were documented in the 1970’s. The fossil has a hole in it that looks similar to a keyhole, but is partially filled in and not visible from the inside of th
