    A Fossil A Day.....

    A Fossil A Day....keeps the blues away! Or something like that... I started an Instragram account (jamielynnfossilquest) and am posting a fossil a day, so I figured I should do that on here, to REAL fossil enthusiasts! I'm a few days behind, so I will start out with a few more than one a day but then it will settle down to One Fossil (but I will admit, I'll probably miss a few days, but I'll double up or whatever.) I'll start with Texas Pennsylvanian era, but will branch out to other locations and time periods, so expect a little of everything! So enjoy A Fossil A Day! Texas

    Horn Coral?

    Hey everyone!! I sent pictures of my fossil, that I found on a Devon beach a few years back, to a museum in the UK to see if they could help me identify what it was! I personally thought it looked like a claw! And my sister thought a mussel! Turns out it was neither! I have attached the lovley little reply I received from the gentleman at the museum so you all can read too! It’s a Horn Coral! Which is a solitary coral, that became extinct many MANY years ago! Pre-Jurassic Period! I'm posting here in the hopes that anyone else might have any more info

    What is this

    Hi all I was out with the kids and found this ,is it a leech ?
  4. I have come across these 2 fossils whilst digging a trench in work, I'd be grateful if anyone has any information for me, these where in the same rock/stone. Thanks Also I'll get better photos when home.
  5. Hi people, I have a query regarding the contents of some siderite nodules from a Duckmantian fossil forest site in N Wales for my PhD project. I had thin sections made of parts of several nodules and they all seem to have an abundance of 'faecal pellets'; rounded, often curved (banana-ish) shaped, mostly stratified pellets. These pellets have been replaced by siderite (FeCO3) and sometimes include pyrite and seem to have been the locus for early sulphate reduction by bacteria before conditions arose for the siderite precipitation. I've attached SEM images of the thin sections

    Help to identify.

    Found this at my local river near Manchester in the UK close to a recent landslide, it looks like a tree bark or something to me and is a foot long. Any help to identify and date would be appreciated.

    Is this an Echinoid?

    Found in Stroud, Glous, UK Its very faint, but I think I can see 6 segments from the top view (image 2), but it also might be my imagination. The piece of rock is quite regular shaped, almost a perfect dome-shape. It does have a bulge on one segment, which to me looks like its excess rock that I could attempt to clean off... but also mixed in there might be part of the better preserved outer-shell as I can see what appear to be patterns emanating from the centre... either that or they are bits of other fossils that got stuck inside this one. Bottom:
  12. Anyone recognise this? Phosphatic nodule, Brigantian (U. Mississippian) marine shale, Co. Durham, UK. Nodules from this bed often contain fish bits, as well as cephalopods, inarticulate brachiopods and (rare) conulariids. Not cleanly broken but the shape is ringing a bell... concave counterpart

    Will's summer 2021

    Hi Guys, I’ve been doing a bit of hunting this summer and thought some of you might like to see what I have found , this trip report is mostly going to focus on finds as in the moment, I wasn’t great at taking photos now I’m not very organised so we aren’t doing this in a chronological order, I’m just going to describe each site separately the bulk of my hunting occurred on the Isle of Wight, so it is only natural that we start there, I’m going to start with one of the less interesting sites, whale chine (an image from the internet) , I stopped here on the way to the
  14. I have searched the site and had a read of a few threads regarding Riker boxes in the UK dating back to 2017. I have dealt with Just in case for a few years now and they have decided to call it a day since the increase in shipping costs recently. They might start up again if the costs come down. So this leaves me a problem as I sell all my fossil teeth etc in Riker boxes, I bought all his remaining stock but that wont last long! Did anyone in the UK have any luck with finding a supplier? I might end up going down the import route, if so I will have an ask around on here to see if I
  15. Hello everyone, A friend of mine and his family will be headed to the south-central and southwest portion of UK for a vacation next week. He asked me if there were any places to collect fossils. 20 years ago I did some collecting in Charmouth, but I know times and permissions change. ANy recommendations on where he could take his family and what if any restrictions or limitations there may be? thank you

    Postage advice UK to USA.

    I have had a bit of a weird issue occur. I have shipped to the US without issue a fair few times but lately I have run into some problems with prohibited goods. So I shipped a Mammoth Molar an Ammonite and a stand and the parcel got held up as I didn't declare the stand and mini Ammonite, fair enough no worries, I spoke with Fedex and they said I used a third party (parcel2go) so I must go through them as the agent. Nice and easy to fix and had to re state the contents of the parcel as a Woolly Mammoth molar fossil, and an Ammonite and a stand, all good sorted and done. I have
  17. Hi everyone, my sister and I went out on walk at a local nature reserve this morning in the UK. With the weather being so hot recently, water levels have dropped in the ponds and the lake that are situated in the reserve. I found this shell sitting at the edge of a very hidden pond. It was NOT found in rock, it's very light weight, very fragile. Is it still a kind of fossil? Thanks guys

    Found in Whitby Bay, UK

    Hello! Complete newbie here. I went looking for fossils for the very first time last week and came across a few interesting things that I don't really know what I'm looking at. I won't bombard you with them though ha, but if anyone can help me identify this that I found at Whitby Bay, UK I'd be much appreciated. Any idea on age? Also any tips on looking after it? Do I need to seal it or anything. Thank you in advance! Also, can anyone say how old they think the mussel may be also? So excited to learn about this subject span widgetpan widget
  19. Was just lying on the beach at low tide. Not sure what it is. Thx.
  20. Hi, I'm newly into fossils because of my son, so I have no idea what this is although I thought it looked a little like a tentacle. Length: 9mm Width: 4mm at its widest. Found on Worthing beach, West Sussex. Not entirely sure of our geology but I know we're a chalk area with flint, the stony beach is a mixture of stones including a lot of flint but also other rocks. Thank you!

    Another Dudley, UK crinoid

    Hello, Here is another crinoid I'm curious about ID. It's Silurian-aged from the Upper Wenlock Layer of Wren's nest, Dudley UK. The plating makes me think this is a bit of crinoid calyx poking out of matrix, measures about 1cm. I do see a plate missing, but I wonder if it's possible there's more crown buried in the rock that's worth prepping out.

    ? Fossils

    Could anyone tell me if these are fossils at all? I work in a school and the children are very interested in them. If they aren’t , I am also interested in what they actually are, so I can pass on any information to them. Many thanks!
