  1. I live in Seymour, TN and have been helping my 6 year old and 4 year old dig for cool rocks and fossils beside our house lately. We would love to find a trilobite, but wanted some help dating the rock layers near my house if anyone here could help me! From what I can find on USGS maps and stuff, our house is on the Tellico Formation (Middle Ordovician). We are above the Blockhouse Formation and below the Chota and Sevier Shale formations. If this is correct, we should be able to find a trilobite on our property somewhere. But the attached photos are the things we have been finding. I believe t

    Weird odd ball looking thing

    I found this on a river bank in rogersville TN. A place where I usually find a lot of Native American artifacts this particular object has me baffled. I don’t even know where to begin on how to identify it through a quick simple google search. How would one describe this odd-ness? Anyways, im not at all knowledgeable in the fossil department so here I am hoping someone else can help me identify this thing. thank you in advance!! I must add that it feels hard, not rock hard, but more plastic hard but feels like a bone material or shell like material.
  3. I purchased this from a man who said it was found on a mountaintop in Tennessee. I have no other information about it at all. Does anyone have any idea what it might be?
  4. Hi Everyone, In the latter half of last month I took a two week trip to Kentucky and Tennessee. My sister, her husband, two of her adult children, and my parents all live in the Elizabethtown/Louisville area and I was able to spend some quality time with them. Fossil collecting was also part of my agenda. Herb, my primary fossil collecting partner in Kentucky and I had a three day trip down to Tennessee planned. Before I went on that expedition, I was out with my brother-in-law driving around central Kentucky. He dropped me off for 20 minutes at the Upper Mississippian site at Wax where

    Ancient wizardry

    Hey everyone, I was so excited by this find today that I had to make an account and create my first post. It’s hands down my best fossil find. What I know: -Crinoid still intact in the rock -Found in Collegedale, TN on the Sabbath Trail. What I need help with: -How did the perfect square form around the Crinoid?! -What are the other imprints in this rock? -Is this a good find? -Should I hang around this forum more? -Nate

    Unknown bone

    I found this bone in a creek bed in middle Tennessee very shortly after a large flood exposed new sediment. I know that that are of Tennessee was once a seafloor so it is likely marine. Any help is appreciated.
  7. I had the opportunity to visit another Silurian site in the northern Georgia/southern Tennessee area. This is now the third such site I've visited, but the first in the Rockwood Formation as opposed to the Red Mountain Formation. As far as I can tell there's very little different between the two lithologically and paleontologically, with the Rockwood and Red Mountain occupying pretty much the same stratigraphic position. The difference seems to be that the TGS prefers to use the term "Rockwood" to describe it's Niagaran Silurian system and the GGS and AGS prefer the term "Red Mountain", mostly

    Just a couple crinoids

    Ordovician coral from Tennessee

    I have these few pieces of coral I need help identifying. They were all found in middle Tennessee. They were all found in the same place and their formation is part of the stones river group. I also have this weird little guy from Tennessee that my dad found on a roof.

    Fossilized Wood or Stone?

    I found this in a creek in middle Tennessee. I’m wondering if it is just a rock or if it could be petrified wood? Thanks!
  11. Just wanted to post some pics of my finds from 2020 I have a Silurian roadcut in Davidson county, a Devonian spot in Parsons, and I hunt the roadcuts that line hwy 840 in middle Tennessee. I am Brand new to this forum, and I'm looking for new collecting spots I can trade locals! Visit my page on here to see more of my finds!

    Possible Fossil Land Mammal Tooth

    Hello. This is my first post. I have little experience in fossils except perhaps an eye to notice they're not quite a rock. I "think" this is a fossil tooth. Found in Tennessee, USA, Mid-Ordovician area in general; at approx 1,100 altitude in the dry portion of a chronically drought stricken river. Partially mineralized and lying where 100-200+ old trees are. Their roots are exposed; fossil wood can't be ruled out. I appreciate your thoughts. I'm a professional rock hound of 10 years with 60 years of accumulated knowledge. Science has sheets fascinated me; geology is i

    Cool find today

    Looking to see if anyone can tell me what I found. Big 1 looks to be solid quartz. The 2 small ones are as big as a finger.
  14. Caving friend of mine took this incredible trilobite photo
  15. I believe might be a coral or sponge of some sort any ideas? Found around smithville Tennessee
  16. What kind of gastropod is this? Found in east Tennessee?
  17. Some fun finds here in Tennessee Devonian /Ordivician area. Just north of Hendersonville TN. Found in creeks, rivers, and streams.
  18. Can anyone identify? Spyroceras maybe?
  19. Some fun finds here in Tennessee Devonian /Ordivician area. Just north of Hendersonville TN. Found in creeks, rivers, and streams.
  20. I really almost dismissed it as a rock but second guessing. Could this be a shark tooth possibly? It was found along with crinoids and horn corals in a creek in Nashville area Tennessee

    Found in dry riverbed in middle TN.

    Found this while hunting geodes in TN. Any thoughts?

    Ammonite fragment?

    Hello, I recently found what I believe to be a fragment of an ammonite in some fossil rich dirt. It was found in middle Tennessee not too far from a creek. Thanks
  23. Brachiopods orthoceras crinoids all found right here in Hendersonville TN Sumner county just north of Nashville. Love to fossil hunt and see what I can find while imagining worlds of the past.

    Are these fossils?

    I recently took a trip up to a few localities of the Murray Shale of Blount County, Tennessee, which contains fossils of the early Cambrian period. I looked around in some of the loose shale on the ground to see if I could find a small brachiopod or hyolith (both of which are common to this locality). This was my first time going out and looking to see if I could find a fossil on my own. I took a few pictures of what I thought could possibly be fossiliferous material of some sort, but ultimately could not determine if what I found was indeed fossiliferous. Most of what I saw appeared to be fos
