    bullet shaped sea shell?

    I can't remember where I found these. But they remind me of a sea creature of some kind, like a barnacle or snail that crawls on rocks. However, a cursory google search brought no joy. Any ideas? Most of my finds are Idaho, Colorado and Wyoming.

    Fossil ID

    So.... It's a rock from an abandoned house rock garden. I'm guessing a vacation find because we don't have these around here. It looks like a claw because the base is flat or straight across. About 3 1/2 cm. I can't offer much info on origin.

    My ultimate mystery fossil

    I found what I have always assumed to be a fossilized broken leg bone among the landscaping stones in the parking lot of a barbecue restaurant in Nashville Tennessee in about 1985. Thus I have zero idea of its origins. The stone is very dense and hard, not at all like the more porous ones I’m accustomed to finding here in Florida. I had a local fossil enthusiast here in FL once tell me it was mammoth, but given the size that doesn’t quite fit to me. Can anyone tell me anything about the species, anatomy or whether it’s even really a fossil as I have been assuming all of these years? Thank

    Unidentified fossil

    Hello, I inherited a 3 inch fossil from my father and would love to know what it is. I don't know where this fossil came from but it looks like some kind of barnacle or something similar. It is brown rock on the bottom and crystallized on top. I have attached several pictures and would be really grateful for any information. Thank you!

    Trilobite ID

    I recently found this bundle of trilobites for sale online. The pictures were poor and the seller had no ID/location information, but the price was right. I have a good idea what most of these are but would like to see what you guys think. #1 - 90.0 mm #2 - 53.5 mm #3 - 39.7 mm #4 - 22.2 mm #5 - 16.0 mm #6 - 10.0 mm #7 - 27.3 mm

    Unidentified Fossil

    Hi. I was given this fossil today and I was wondering if anyone could tell me what it is? The guy who gave it to me said he found it at the side of a dam somewhere in England but he had the feeling that the rock used there had been imported from elsewhere. There is a white crystal at one end of the stone (possibly quartz?) and I believe that the fossil is preserved in the same crystal. Not really sure if it is a fossil of a crystal formation in the rock? I can supply more images if needed.
  7. I purchased this in Woodbury Connecticut in a furniture antique store. I was told it was a fossil "millions" of years old. The dimensions are 17" wide x 4" tall x 1/2" thick. What you see on the back of the fossil is glue as it was attached to a frame and I have not attempted to remove the glue. I appreciate any insight as to what it is and age. Thank you.

    Would like for you to ID these

    Sorry about this being my 2nd post(introduction was the first) but I really have no idea what I'm doing. I picked up a box lot of mineral and fossil specimens recently. Primarily for the goniatite fossil that was included. In that lot, I found a few pieces labeled "dinosaur bones" and one piece that looked to be a tooth, only in shape, and a mystery piece. I'm hoping that you can id these for me. These are keeper pieces for me just because they are very cool. The first owner was kind enough to glaze the pieces with a high gloss protectant. I would also love to remove that. Thanks Dave

    What the heck are they ???

    Hi everybody, With plenty of rain past couple of years lots of things wash up even here in NM desert. Both of these neat things found on our 5 acres of middle of nowhere, east of Albuquerque. My husband did some sort of electricity conductivity test (he likes that kind of thing) thinking one was flattened/smashed old bullet. Neither had conductivity. The round one - abt 1" in diameter - looks snail-like but the other - abt 1" long - looks like - well - I have no idea... (also have pics from different angles) Ideas welcome ! MebTex
