    Mystery fossil from South France

    About 18 years ago, when I was on holiday with my family in the Cevennes in southern France, I found lots of ammonite fossils near a rivier. I also picked up this slap of stone with strange imprints in it. Tracks of a sea creature like a worm or arthropod? On the other side are the imprints of something that looks like a starfish. It has been a mystery for me since the day I found it. Any suggestions/ideas what i can be?

    PA Ordovician Starfish

    For Father's Day Weekend my dad and I drove into Pennsylvania yesterday to collect Ordovician fossils at a location I read about with access to the Salona Formation. With rain in the forecast I was a little worried the trip would be a total wash. Instead, we experienced beating sun, and, having left our hats at home, we quickly began to overheat. My dad also found two snakes while overturning some large rocks. To say the least my dad was ready to leave after an hour. Luckily I was able to convince him that if he wanted to stop he should at least let me poke around for another 30 minutes. While
  4. Saturday dawned a bit chilly, but the sun peeped out from lingering clouds to brighten a stellar day of fossil prospecting in the Ordovician bedrock of central Pennsylvania. We strolled along the limestone ground, like beachcombers peering in shallow shore waters, when my relatively newbie friend exclaimed, "That looks like a starfish!" Bingo...Indeed it was an Asteroidea. I'm guessing it's genus Urasterella, and I wonder how rare is this find. The specimen's longest ray is 1.75 inches (4.45 cm). Photos are the rock slab and a closeup of the mostly complete starfish, as f
  5. Welp. I did it. I got through the last of the fossil boxes. Tons of common stuff and Hundreds of old Ward’s samples to organize and inventory. but the very last specimen in the very last box is worth sharing....

    Aldebarania arenitea

    Found 8 Aug 2013. An extremely rare starfisht, it was 1 of less than 10 complete specimens ever found at that time. It was found in the sand layer of the Rocky Point member of the PeeDee. This layer contains abundant Flemingostrea subspatulata among other oysters along with Hardouinia mortonis and kellumi echinoids. This starfish was invertebrate fossil of the month in 08/2013.

    Brittlestar Fossil Authenticity?

    I purchased a bulk collection of ambers (Baltic and Dominican) from a collector looking for some spare cash. Along with it she included a Geocoma carinata fossil. I admittedly don't know much about fossils. But a few red flags have caught my eye post-purchase not about the amber specimens but the fossil. She is a reputable collector and once owned a store in the area I live in. I guess the first sign is that the information she gave me had the name spelled incorrectly. "Geocoma corinata" I'm a biology student, I get that names can change over time or there are instances of typos but the next b

    Swatara Gap PS Starfish

    I've been collecting at the actual Swatara Gap site since I was a kid and over the years collected most of the trilobites and starfish that were found there. However, there are some starfish that I would like to verify. I've tried literature searches and know there is a 1989 paper on them , but I cannot find it on-line. Hopefully, one of you guys can help with identifying these specimens. Any help would be appreciated/

    Sea stars / starfish?

    Years ago bought some rock boxes from an estate sale in California. Included were some fossils I just don't know anything about. Most had vague or no IDs. The larger of these Sea Stars is approximately 6.5mm across. Gonna post a few here just to see if anything interesting although these have no connection to my collection.

    Starfish

    I got this fossil at an antique shop a while back and I believe they told me it was from Morocco. other than that I have no other information. Is there any way you guys could help me?
  13. I recently bought this from a live auction and thought that it was cool and the price was right. It was listed as a starfish from Kansas. I did some checking and only found one site that mentioned starfish from Kansas and it stated that they were Pennsylvanian in age and I could not find any other info. I was wondering if anyone has any further info on this piece and I was also wondering if these were formed by the starfish resting? Again any info would be appreciated.

    pseudo fossil, starfish

    While walking back to the car I walked over this interesting specimen. I do not know if it is a pseudo fossil most likely, feeding trace of a star fish with lots of arms most unlikely. This comes from the toolebuc formation in central Queensland and is cretaceous. The item in question is 60 mm across. Any comments appreciated. Mike
  15. I am back from my trip to morocco. It is a 14 days trip and I got 4 days for fossil hunting. It was so imagine, fossils are everywhere and even though I won't be able to dig, I still get plenty to bring home. Since my guide doesn't speak good English, I am not be able to ask him must so I need help to identify the fossil. On the first day, my guide took me to a place near Erfoud to search for dinosaur teeth. It is very close to the highway. We found a well that the local people dig to get Spinosaur teeth and bone. My husband went down to one but couldn't find anything because
  16. I bought this along with several other pieces boxed together at a garage sale. The whole piece is 7 inches by nearly 4 inches. The starfish is close to 5 inches longest tip to longest tip. I'm not an expert in any area but it was easy enough for me to distinguish the real ammonites and small trilobites etc. from the few that were enhanced or clearly replicas. I'm a little unsure on this piece, though my gut tells me it is not a genuine fossil. When looking at the photos, it appears the starfish was carved, filled in with a reddish matrix, and then perhaps the figure was presse
  17. Hello, As I'm sure most have seen, certain fossils sometimes have a white or cream colored "halo" around them and other times the same type of fossil doesn't. I'm wondering.... can someone explain why this is? I personally always prefer specimens without the halo purely from an aesthetic perspective. But I'd be curious to learn more about why this is done and also whether or not other people prefer one way over the other. Is one way considered more desired than the other way, should one expect to pay a significant premium for one over the other? etc. Thanks very much! And to show y
  18. Hey guys. I am a new member and currently an 18-year-old freshman college student. I am currently going through basics but as a kid, I loved dinosaurs and prehistoric creatures. I recently have thought about changing my major from biology to paleontology. I am a fossil collector and hope to collect hundreds of examples of prehistoric life. As I said I'm a fossil collector but a novice at it. I know relatively what a given organism is but I want to know, if possible, the species. If they are completely unidentifiable, no worries. I might add that all of these fossils did not have locations of w
  19. I was interested in purchasing this brittle starfish fossil from Morocco. I've read how there are a lot of fakes out there. I'd really appreciate some insight. Thanks!

    Real or fake?

    Moroccan starfish fossil purchased near Erfoud. Is it real? Are the small ones a different type of starfish? I am also looking for ideas on how to hang it?

    Starfish fossil? Please help ID

    Hi. I would love help identifying this fossil. Is it what it appears to be, a starfish? Total fossil newbie here from central California coast. This was found on the beach near Capitola where we have MANY fossils. I have found lots locally but never anything like this before. Thank you in advance :-)

    Awesome Preservation on Star

    My son has couple of pieces of aldebarania ( starfish) found in Pee Dee formation from Rocky Point NC, that have great preservation. On one piece there is an object that appears to be a sponge maybe ? Any ideas? Thanks.
