Hi Everyone- I'm a newbie to the forum, but a long time shark tooth hunter and general enthusiast of all things rocks, gems, fossils, and geology. Thanks so much for taking the time to help me out! I've been collecting sharks teeth for a few months from Juno Beach, Florida (~25 miles north of West Palm Beach). Usually on the surface of the sand, or, occasionally, sifting through the shell beds right at the breakers, max waist deep. I have found quite a few of these items in the first two rows, and I cannot source them online with google searches of any type. I've only t

StackB posted a topic in Fossil IDHi All, I'm wondering if you could help me identify this item? I think it's a fossil bone, but I just don't know. I found it lying on the surface where I was camped for the night by the Kem Kem beds. The reason we were camped was to visit the Spinosaurus dig site that was featured in the National Geographic Documentary, Bigger than T. Rex. I can provide the long and lat, for the exact location. The surface it was on was rock strewn, so it was a chance find amidst many rocks. About 8-10 metres from a dry stream edge, not an obvious exposure or deposit from running water. T

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
Yesterday's find: Bone at Belmar, New Jersey
jpenn posted a topic in Fossil IDA friend of mine spotted this on the beach at Belmar, NJ yesterday February 2nd. This is kind of an unusual locale, adjacent to the jetty at Shark River Inlet where the Shark River meets the Atlantic. In the past my buddy and I have found small beachworn fossil shark teeth at this spot, so we thought for old time's sake we'd take a quick look again. We didn't find any teeth (there's much less fine gravel there now than in the past) but he did find this, which is way bigger than anything we've found here before. I have some guesses but I would like other eyes on this too in case I'm missing som
