    The Addy Roadcut

    Washington state is well known for its beautifully preserved fossil crabs and leaf impressions but recently I have been fascinated by some of the less recognised Palaeozoic material from the northeast of the state. Last week I had the opportunity to visit a large roadcut outside of Addy, Wa. I first learned of this location a few years back researching the Palaeozoic of Washington and spending about an hour at the site what I found far exceeded my expectations. The roadcut, published by Okulitch (1951) cuts through the Addy Quartzite Formation which is of Lower Cambrian age and is one of only

  3. Here is a crab prep video I did last week. Not only had fun making the video but I remember having fun prepping this out. It was quite the challenge. 3 minutes 34 seconds. https://youtu.be/w6Sw-FdlIlQ
  4. All of these came from Oregon or Washington State. My kids tell me they're just rocks... I know for sure that quite a few of them are more then just plain rocks ..right?

    Last Summer's Goods

    Here's a few finds from last summer's hunt. Many are still being acid etched. The megalodon tooth was found in Washington's Astoria Formation (Miocene) along with the basking shark tooth. The meg was found by an associate on a hunt. Found many other whale and dolphin fossils, a couple skulls, both are being prepped at museum's. One rare find was part of a sea turtle (4th photo) that's awaiting shipment, for study in Taiwan. A lot of fish nodules and one of my favorites, a fish jaw, last photo. Planning more hunts this summer and my 2nd (and final) retirement.
  6. What's up, everyone?! I'm in Quincy, WA for work for about 6 weeks and would love to do some digging. Does anyone know if there some good spots out here? Also, I don't know if the regulations are the same as at home (New Mexico). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Hope you all are happy and healthy! View from the base of my driveway. Columbia River at dawn.
  7. From the album: Fossil Amber and Copal: Worldwide Localities

    9.2g amber from Tiger Mountain, King County, WA. This amber is middle to late Eocene in age (about 41.3-33.9 Ma), and comes from coal seams along the boundary of the upper Tukwila/lower Renton Formations.

    Tooth tusk bone wood?

    I have had this for six months cant figure out what it is i need help please.

    I have very little knowledge of fossils. My yard is full of decorative rocks collected from the Washougal, Washington area. I picked this one up and noticed the lizard image in it. When brushing the rock the image(s) emerged more and more. I’m worried I might damage the fossil(?) as the rock is hard and doesn’t brush away easily. Can you tell me anything about it? It measures about 10cm x 4cm
  12. Hello All, (WARNING: FIRST TIME CRAB PREP AHEAD) A friend of mine came across a small concretion (2.5") on a marketplace website and picked it up for me. It was already cracked open right across the equator, and exposed a small crab. (I'm assuming from Washington State but anyone that can weigh-in on the species is appreciated.) As per the pictures, the Crab itself has the body and the claw separated into different halves of the split. Reading up on the forum I decided to glue the concretion back together and air scribe my way back down to the Crab in the hopes of conso

    Found this in my yard in SW Washington long ago. Looking over what I believed were my fossils, I noticed what appears to be the clam in the shell I thought was fossilized. Is it? Not sure where the shell was originally found. Possibly So. Washington or Oregon coast. measures 4 cm. I can feel it.

    Pelvic Bone?

    Ok guys, is this better? This came from the Columbia Gorge near Vancouver, Wa. It’s 18cm x 10cm and is shaped like a pelvic bone. Any idea what it is from or is it just another rock?
  15. From the album: Fossil Amber and Copal: Worldwide Localities

    1.2 gram amber from Tiger Mountain, King County, WA. Smaller inclusions consist mostly of slightly darker, congealed resin positioned along natural flow lines; this feature is by far most commonly seen among the Indonesian ambers. The few large, dark masses are botanical debris. Image taken under approx. 10x magnification with a Belomo Triplet loupe. This amber is middle to late Eocene in age (about 41.3-33.9 Ma), and comes from coal seams along the boundary between the upper Tukwila/lower Renton Formations.

  16. From the album: Fossil Amber and Copal: Worldwide Localities

    Two exceptionally fluorescent pieces of amber from Tiger Mountain, King County, WA. These were illuminated with a 140 lumen LED penlight, not a long wave UV light; this is a surprising feature for amber of this locality, as blue amber is only well-documented to come from the Dominican Republic, Indonesia, and Chiapas. This amber is middle to late Eocene in age (about 41.3-33.9 Ma), and comes from coal seams along the boundary of the upper Tukwila/lower Renton Formations.

  17. Item found September 5, 2021 on a gravel bar in the middle of Hoh River, Olympic Peninsula, Washington State. Hoh River is a glacier fed river coming off Mt Olympus. Item is light gray/green in color, approximately 12 cm long and between 3 to 5.5 cm in diameter. There are two small protuberances across from each other about 2/3 of the way from one end, and a less prominent lump on the end closest to the protuberances. The texture is quite porous, with the exception of one face of the item which is smoother, more dense, and shows lengthwise graining.
  18. Hi all! I am traveling out to Olympia for a week and was hoping to do some fossil hunting while I was out there. I was hoping someone would recommend a good spot an hour or so from the city. Thanks!

    Found in yard outside Seattle

    I found this under a few inches of dirt in my yard. I've lived here since 2004 so surprised to find it. This novice is curious to figure out what it is, how common this is to find, possible age... I'm about 5 miles from the Puget Sound outside Seattle and at 500 ft above sea level so guessing it was brought to where I found it. Can almost make out tiny shells in some of the holes. It's quite heavy and slightly larger than a football. Thanks community!

    Found this fossil. But what is it?

    It's not a big fossil. My hubby and I think it's a buzzsaw shark tooth. Anyway, we can't figure out what kind of buzzsaw shark it's from or if it's even that kind of fossil. It looks like a doll shoe, but it is a fossil. Any help would be appreciated.
  21. Hello, my son found this piece deep in the bed of a little creek that passes through our property. We are in Northeast Washington. Looks like bone to me. Is it fossilized? And does anyone know what it might be? Thanks a ton for the help.
  22. I found this fossil in Eastern WA (Pasco, WA, Benton County) in areas of the flood basin near the white bluffs in the hills along the Columbia river. It's from the Ice Age as my father who is a geologist said thats the era it's from with the layer of earth, and he was thinking it would be maybe from a camelops, bison, giant sloth or some other medium sized animal. But as I was looking at pictures of bones of these animals I couldn't figure it out. None of the vertebre seem to match this one. I'd love help ID-ing this fossil vertebra please. If you need better images please let me k
  23. I found this super useful resource lately and thought you guys would enjoy: https://geologyportal.dnr.wa.gov/ It's an interactive geologic map of Washington state, it records multiple fossil beds and formations as well as old quarries and mines. It may take a little bit of research if you're unfamiliar, but it's an invaluable resource if you're searching for a new spot. Remember to stay safe and avoid trespassing

    Murdock Beach Fossils WA

    Me and my girlfriend went to Murdock Beach, we found a ton of concretions, one of which (which I left in the car and can't include) was an agatized acila clam I believe. With pretty good detail. However that was the only fossil that I found which I could recognize. I will post all the finds here which I was curious about. I continually saw these rectangular cross sections of some strange agatized fossil. Then, I split one of these rectangular fossils just right and got a print of what the "skin" or outside layer looks like as almost a cast from a mold of agate. The perfect
