    Need help please!

    Oh my I don't know where to start really! My 10 year old daughter is interested in collecting fossils. Today we have been to Filey beach on the East Coast, UK. She found numerous fossils. I think I have managed to help her identify them as ammonite, brachiopod and gryphaea. One however has me stumped and google isn't helping, maybe bone or wood? (to be honest I'm not sure it even is a fossil!) she is proud of her finds and is desperate to know what it is, hence me being here asking for help! Many thanks in advance

    Ichthyosaur Vertebrae

    I bought this cut and highly polished 4.3cm Ichthyosaur Vertebrae. Can anyone confirm that this is really an Ichthy, i'd like to be sure. It was found at kettleness north yorkshire as an erratic nodule.
  3. Fossil of the Month, January 2015. Prepping details here: Jan 2015 finds of the month A partial, extremely rare, many armed starfish, the genus was assigned to a new family Plumasteridae in 2011: A. S. Gale. 2011. Asteroidea (Echinodermata) from the Oxfordian (Late Jurassic) of Savigna, Départment du Jura, France. Swiss Journal of Palaeontology 130:69-89 This is from the same area and formation as the holotype of its species. The distinctive ossicles are common as disarticulated elements in sieved samples from Pliensbachian to Oxfordian.

    Bone from Whitby area?

    I was on a trip to yorkshire coast, picked this up at runswick bay in amongst the boulders. Apparently it's one of the best areas for bones. It looks like a bone to me, i want it to be a bone! Is it a bone?
  5. As often the case with brittle stars and other starfish, this shows the oral surface and is on the underside of the sandstone bed. The bed below it is a shale and the base of the sandstone represents a sudden influx of sediment which preserved the brittle star nearly intact. This was Invertebrate/Plant Fossil of the Month Sept 2014 and Fossil of the Year 2014.
  6. The phragmocone is partly in a nodule, the rostrum protruding from it - quite rare in these beds. It has the remains of an epirostrum. Assigned to Megateuthis in: Doyle, P., 1990, The British Toarcian Belemnites. Contentious taxonomy down the years - diagnostic features include the pair of dorsolateral apical grooves. Similar specimens of Acrocoelites sp. are supposed to have an additional ventral groove but this is variable ...
  7. An extreme morphology, much of the length consisting of an epirostrum - an overgrowth and extension of the normal rostrum. This may have been aragonitic and partially organic and is frequently crushed.

    Dinosaur footprint?

    Hi. I found this on the Yorkshire coast, UK (Jurassic.) Is it a dinosaur footprint? The 'footprint' isn't clear so I have drawn an outline on the second photo. The possible footprint measures 6.5 inches. Dinosaur footprints are quite common on the Yorkshire coast. Thanks, Daniel
  9. Well decided to work on a couple of bits last night for an hour, the bone is from Kettleness and is one I have been thinking about having a go at so finally decided to get it done. The ammonite was picked up from Port Mulgrave it had a nice ridge showing but as I removed the extra matrix of it a Hildo appeared. It is looking crushed so not sure how the middle will be, but if it is ok I may prep the other side to expose both ammonites.

    Almost certainly nothing

    Hi. I found this in West Yorkshire, UK in the Pennine Lower Coal Measures formation (upper Carboniferous). It is in a Marine concretion. It contains what I think is a Phyllocarid but when I was looking at it today I noticed a Tully monster shape. I'm 99% sure it's just a fracture in the rock rather than anything interesting but I decided to post some pictures here just to be sure. Thanks, Daniel
  11. Hi. I went fossil hunting today in an old coal mining tip in South Yorkshire, UK. Almost all of it is overgrown and there is very little rock which contains good fossils but it is possible to find some nice fossils. Years ago, the tip caught fire, which changed the colour of the rocks. Most of the rock is now red or pink. The fossils at the site are from the Pennine Middle Coal Measures formation, which is around 312 million years old. Good quality fossils in West or South Yorkshire are very rare, mainly because the rocks which contain the best fossils are rarely exposed. When they are
  12. Complete pyritized shell.
  13. Hello everyone, This is my first post to the forum, so apologies if I inadvertently don't follow all the rules... Anyway, I found this odd flint on Bridlington North Beach earlier today. It caught my eye due to the unusual shape. I am not a proper fossil hunter - just a picker-up of obvious stuff like belemnites in my driveway gravel - so I have no idea what this could be. (Or even if it is a fossil!) I hope the photos show up the crazing, and the fact that the narrow groove on one side retains a high shine, as just visible in the third photo (the rest has b

    Two more multi block preps

    Here's two more mini multi blocks from Yorkshire,both Dactylioceras.sp.One prepped with tt pen only, the second one with st pen also that allows far more control around the little ammonites.
  15. This species gives its name to the zone and subzone at the bottom of the lower Toarcian. This very fine-ribbed specimen of the genus Dactylioceras is for me a fine representative for the legend of St. Hilda, the Abbess at the monastery in Whitby ca. 650 A.D. She wanted to build a convent there as well, but the grounds were infested with snakes, so she prayed so intensively that all of the snakes were turned into stone. Since then they are known as snakestones. I found this sample pretty well as is with a head that reminds us of a snake. Literature: Howarth, M.K. (1973): The St

    Ichthyosaur vertebra

    From the album: Marine reptiles

    Ichthyosaur vertebra from Whitby, Yorkshire, U.K.
  17. Here's a specimen I found last August on the Yorkshire Coast, near Whitby (UK) and have recently got prepared. I didn't prepare it myself, but sent it off and have just got it back. What do you think? The specimen is a Zugodactylites braunianus, and it is from the Upper Lias of North Yorkshire. It's about 185 MYA.
  18. Hi, i was hoping someone could help me identify whether the following photos are a concretion or a fossil. The piece was found poking out of a lump of clay fallen from the cliff at Robin Hoods Bay, North Yorkshire, UK. It looks like one end is broken off and there is an outer layer which is a mid grey colour with brown patches and the inner is a much darker grey to almost black. The dimensions are around 9" by 4" by 3". Any help much appreciated, thanks Simon
  19. I'll like to check out are these Arnioceras ammonites pyritized? They are from Yorkshire UK. I want to know in your opinion, are these ammonites pyritized or non-pyritized? Link to the picture: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10201976908256821&set=a.3256541024913.135604.1608741583&type=3&theater
  20. I've just come back from a trip to Yorkshire where I managed to do a little fossil hunting and was lucky enough to find this ammonite. The problem is though is that generally the preservation in the area wasn't great and this one is clearly covered in a mudstone/ shale type of rock. However I think it might be worth trying to remove the surrounding rock because the small bit which I can see seems to have preserved fairly well. However I don't know the best way to remove it, see i'm not very comfortable with chiseling it away because I'm fairly new to this so would probably end up ruining it! I
  21. I recently got round to prepping a few ammonites from my collection - I collected them during the summer (August) at the Yorkshire Coast (UK), but have only just got round to prepping them. I thought I'd share them with you. I'm not an experienced prepper, so I was practising on these ammonites. I am pleased with how they turned out, although I still have a little bit of work to finish some of them off. If anyone else wants to share their Yorkshire ammonites that would be great; once we get a thread going I'll post some of my other specimens. All of these ammonites are from the Lias of the
