    Vermont fossil... or not?

    My wife and I spotted the large rock below yesterday along the shore of Lake Champlain in Shelburne, Vermont, and were intrigued by the light colored branching patterns. The rocks here are Ordivician in age. We're not sure whether these are fossils or not, but hopefully someone here can help. The pattern is flat/flush against the surface of the rock. Thanks in advance for your input!
  3. My wife and I are up in Northern Vermont for the Thanksgiving holiday and were able to take advantage of a beautiful day yesterday by going for a walk in some woods and fields along Lake Champlain. While exploring the shoreline, we came across this rock wall and my wife spotted what looked like a fossil shell. Lo-and-behold, the wall was full of fossils--primarily gastropods I believe. We're not sure where these rocks came from, but the rocks along the lake are Ordivician in age and there's a good chance these came from a similarly-aged rock quarry in the

  5. Just found my first fossil this past weekend in Grand Isle, Vermont. I think it is a trilobite but I am not sure. I was hoping someone can comment on what they think it is and maybe a few tips for cleaning it would be much appreciated! The fossil is about 1.5" long and was sun baking for who knows how long. Any idea how old these things are? Thanks for the feedback!
  6. Hello everyone! I found myself in Vermont today, and through much cajoling I convinced my parents to allow a detour to a fossil site a forum member let me know about a year ago. It is from the Crown Point Formation, Ordovician in age. The first time time I was there, about a year ago, I collected a ton of trilobite cross sections. While those are cool, this time I wanted to focus on finding ones worn in a slightly more favorable fashion, and perhaps one worthy of prep. Unfortunately, I didn’t find any worthy of prep, but I did find some decent trilo-bits. Also came hom

    can you ID this fossil?

    Can anyone help me identify this fossil. It is in a piece of black marble quarried in southwest Vermont. The rock is 5" long, the fossil in it is 4.25" long, 1" wide at widest point.
  8. My first fossil hunting trip was a success! I have a tone of amazing material from Grand Isle VT! I have no idea what most of it is though. LOL But it's going to be so much fun learning what I have. I even got one complete 1.5cm trilobite! and some kind of head thing! Here are some of the pics!

    What is this?

    So I found this little dude sitting pretty as could be in a rock pile up in Grand Isle Vermont. I am new to fossils and haven't learned about all the critters in my area yet. I think it's head armor? The area is dated to the mid Cambrian and the matrix is black shale. You can even see one little flipper thing on the left. (don't laugh at me I'm new! lol) So what is it?
  10. So I just found out about two good fossil sites for trilobites only and hour away from my house! This is my first time going out looking for fossils ever and I am so excited! I gots me a spade, large flat head screw driver, thin pry bar, gloves and claw hammer. For prep tools I have an air scribe and compressor, steel dental/sculpting tools, mini files, polishing papers, and other small tools as I work with silver. The site is in Vermont and I am expecting wet, cool conditions. I wanted to get any tips or advice you may have for a first timer to help make my afternoon trip a success. Tri-Lo-Bi
  11. Hello for all. It has been a while to leave a post here! I am currently in Burlington, VT as a UVM student. Before the end of the summer recess (August 18), I traveled to northern Vermont consulting some articles about Cambrian and Ordovician formation located in Highgate Falls and South Hero. In this post, I will just talk about one trip to Highgate. I left my dorm around 11 a.m., and I get the Higate Falls near 1 p.m. After straying about 3 hours, I finally realized that the outcrops described as fossiliferous in the article are located in the private land.

    Quick VT trilobite hunt!

    I’ve been on vacation in the northeast, and I pestered my parents till I got to fossil hunt a few times. All those years of honing my complaining skills payed off! Anyway, I’m doing these reports out of order, but I’ll start with my last one. I went to a site suggested by the amazingly generous and knowledgeable @Cluros . It is crown point formation, and is one of the many islands. The site had a dark shale that was mainly unfossiliferous that I searched through a bit confused for twenty minutes or so. Then I found my first trilobite cross section in a hard limestone or dolomite. After t

    Wood Fossil?

    So I found this stone at Lake Memphremagog on the Vermont side and it looks like wood and feels like wood on one half but on the other side it looks like fossilized wood and the stone/fossil itself is heavy like stone and cold to the touch like stone so it is definitely not entirely wood. I’m wondering if it is just partially fossilized or something but I’m also curious if 1. It actually is a wood fossil and 2. If there’s any chance anyone can tell how old it is by the looks of it. Thank you in advance even if it turns out to be just a very cool looking stone. I’m happy to provide any addition

    Strange find from Vermont

    This was found by my father some years ago at a spot on lake Champlain. Oddly this bone is definitely mineralized or at least partially mineralized, though fossil bones and such are very VERY rare to find in Vermont, it can happen in specific conditions, as was the case with a mammoth tusk found in a peat bog in Brattleboro, VT. And whale bones found on the lake as well. Any clues on this would be greatly appreciated, he’s been wondering for years, and I must say I’m pretty interested by this find since fossilized bone is so rare in my area.

    Bryozoan, and trilo piece?

    Found at lake Champlain in Vermont, Ordovician-Iberville formation. I’m assuming the first bit is another type o bryozoan I’ve yet to have seen, and the second piece you can only faintly see the symmetrical counter part so I traced it to give a good idea of shape, is it some lining of a trilobite? Any information/ideas are welcome! 1.) 2.)

    Vt fossils

    Got out for the first time this year to one of my favorite spots on Lake Champlain. Came home with a grocery bag full of rocks. tons of crinoid bits and pieces as usual, some bryozoa pieces and some brachiopods. Any info on these would be much appreciated! (Iberville formation-Ordovician) these fossils are very small so I’ve tried taking pictures through a magnifying lense to show detail, if more are required of any given piece just ask! 1.) 2.) 3.) 4.) 5.) 6.) 7.) 8.) 9.)

    Bryozoa from VT?

    found at Lake Champlain, in Vermont, Iberville formation which is Ordovician in age. These two pieces don’t have a ton of detail left but is there enough to be sure these are Bryozoa?

    Another find from a beach at Lake Champlain in Vermont that I originally thought to be just a cool rock but now I see it's a fossil of something, any ideas welcome!

    Crown Point Formation

    Recently, I have obtained a Wikipedia account so that I could update articles on some of Vermont’s geologic formations. The first of which I have made is the Ordovician age Crown Point Formation, in which I have collected many rocks completely covered in fossil invertebrates. Although I am unsure as to how far this formation goes (possibly extending into New York as well),localities known for having some of the most fossils from the formation include the towns of Panton and Isle La Motte. In creating the list, my main source of information was Paleontology of the Lake Champlain Basin in

    Find a lot of this mostly unidentifiable stuff at the beaches of Lake Champlain in Vermont, I know that Ordovician material is found here. I’m curious about the small circular fossils, they appear on many of the rocks around the beach, any ideas? They are tiny, about 2 or 3mm
