    Washington Fish Nodule

    Early Oligocene fish nodule from the Lincoln Creek Formation in SW Washington state.
  4. Hello all! In my hunt to find crab concretions I started out at the beaches of the Olympic Peninsula. I wanted to share what I have found! I have gone three times so far and the close to six hour round trip was a bit rough, but very well worth it and I can't wait to learn and discover more. I am struggling to find crabs, but I am continuing my research and hope to figure something out soon. If there is anyone that could point me in the right direction that would be greatly appriciated as well! The first concretion I opened, It took no effort to crack. I speculate it cou

    Agatized bone?

    Found in the Cle Elum, Washington area. This bone was found in the river, appears to be agatized. Would love to know if anyone could identify it. I wold imagine it’s a type of digit. Thank you in advance.
  6. Hello everybody. Besides being busy making fossil prep video's, I'm learning a new editing software program that is much much better than the first one I learned. Way easier and much better to handle/play/control audio with this one. Anyways, I made a 5 part crab prepping series and this is Part 3. Part 4 and 5 will be published the next two saturdays. Enjoy Oh, this video is just under 3 minutes so it wont waste too much of your time. https://youtu.be/-GMQEFqw5MQ

    A stunning find yesterday, my best so far, of a rare palaega goedertorum. Lincoln Creek Formation, upper Oligocene of Washington state. 34 years hunting here, I've only found six. Some of my colleagues have hunted for decades and have yet to find one.

    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

  10. 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
  11. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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 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
  19. 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?
  22. 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.

  23. 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.

  24. 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.
  25. 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!
