  1. Hello. I found this strange fossil a couple of weeks ago and I cant figure out what it might be, my guess is a part of some sort of coral or sponge. It was found in the eastern part of the Siljan ring formation in Sweden, the layer is possibly silurian or ordovician. Any clue as to what it might be?
  2. At the end of August this year I travelled to Larvik in southern Norway to visit "Norges stein og mineralmesse". On my drive from Nässjö in Småland to Strömstad in Bohuslän i took a short detour to visit Taberg. Taberg is a huge iron ore mountain consisting of Titanomagnetite-Ovlivinite which is only found in Taberg, Sweden and Rhode island, U.S.A. The ore body was created 1.2 billion years ago and has survived both a number of ice ages as well as several attempts of mining. Today the mountain is protected by law and during winter the old mine shafts house

  5. Hello, I am new to this community and fossils/bone identification in general. Hope you can help me with identifying a part of the skull I recently found (or at least I think it is a part of the skull). I found the bone recently (May 2022) close to a beach in Malmö, Sweden while cleaning up the beach with my colleagues. I would like to make a nice display stand for it, and I'd like to have something other than "Unknown Species" on a tag. I suspect what I see here are the eyeholes and the nose on a skull bone. First I thought it was a bird of some k

    I found this bone a few months ago in Ignaberga Quarry, Sweden upper Cretaceous. But is there any possibilty to id the animal it belonged to or what type of bone it is? It is surely marine reptile.
  9. Hello! This topic will show my personal finds from the Ignaberga Quarry, Sweden. Ignaberga is a quarry in Skåne County, Sweden. It is in the Kristianstad Basin. The age is Upper Cretaceous. Santonian to Maastrichtian. But most of the outcrops are Lower Campanian in age. The environment was a warm to subtropical shallow inland sea with an archipelago and small Peninsulas. I will be updating this thread with pictures of my finds. Enjoy & regards - Adriano

    Fossil hunting at beaches

    So i fossil hunt mostly in beaches. Where the rocks and fossils are from denmark. Im in sweden but how can i date the rocks? When i dont know what formation they came from? And i have found sea urchins and crinoid stars. But can i also find teeth and bones? Mostly of the rocks are from the cretaceous. If i should look for teeth and bones should i look around the loose rocks for loose teeth and bones? Or in rocks? How does fossil bones look like when the water has worn them? Is there any chance of even finding teeth? Sorry for the newbie questions
