  1. Complete Novices need help!

    Hi, my children and I have never cleaned up a fossil before, but we go to places like kimmeridge, charmouth, Lyme Regis etc a lot as we live not far away, normally we just see the fossils at the beaches and leave them to the experts. Yesterday though on a trip to Charmouth, my son found a large piece he wanted to bring home and clean up (he’s recently been given a rock tumbler and is now fascinated with rocks/fossils etc). We don’t have any tools at the moment but I’m happy to get some simple bits. The warden at Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre suggested he start with sandpaper. Any advice on how we start would be greatly appreciated, thanks. Aimee x
  2. Hey, I got these from online and the description says they are pleuroceras ammonites from the jurassic. I just wanted to be sure if this is correct? Also there's a small belemnite rostrum piece, but I guess it's to small to determine the species? Greetings Henning
  3. Ammonite ID

    I was given this Ammonite as a gift. It came with no info as to where it was collected etc. Any ideas?
  4. I picked these up today for super cheap and would like to gift them to a picky collector I know. Color is actually very black pictures seem to lighten it significantly. If any of you have any knowledge on these I'd appreciate your opinion. I also got 2 little ones from same man liquidating his deceased aunts house along with a really great vacuum! The large one is whole. The 2 pieces are 3" each and are only halves
  5. Hi all, I have an ammonite specimen from Folkestone, UK that is locked in a phosphate nodule. Is there any way for it to be removed? Thanks, Jay
  6. Ammonite ID

    Hello forumites Can’t seem to find an id on this ammo. I guess I might need to prep more to see the keel but it’s pretty fragile. Could Paraloid it I guess. Lower Oxford Clay Callovian, Jurassic Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, UK. Cube is 1cm3 @Ludwigia
  7. Found two interesting cephalapods on the Blanco River in Central Texas. I have never found nautiloids in my area, but I looked up as much info as I could find, but only two are found in Cretaceous. So I am thinking this is a Cymatoceras? Perhaps Cimomia Angustus? That was one I found online that looked a bit like this one. Any help of ID would be appreciated. The little grey imbedded ammonite is also unusual to me since it is so small, most of what I have found are much much larger.
  8. Tonight, I started a block that iv had for quite some time, and being dying to prep. Annoyingly, the split from the nodule was very poor, cause a few different cracks, all the way through the ammonite. I glued this back up two days ago and let it set before starting prep. I couldn’t wait to get home from work today, so I could begin the real work. Prep photos to follow in the comments as I can’t size down these files any more
  9. Ichtyosaur rib

    From the album Holzmaden

    A kinda interesting combination out of an ammonite, a belemnite and a partial Ichtyosaur rib. It wasn't very difficult to prep but all in all it took about 3 hours. The belemnite is about 10 cm long and the partial rib is about 11 cm long. I found this one last year in the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. Some more pictures: And the unprepped rib:
  10. Ammonite-gastropod

    Hi everybody. I made an exchange with someone who gave me that ammono-gastero fossil. The ammonite has 7 centimeters of circumference and the gasteropod 2,5 centimeters. All the information i have is that they must be from the Callovian stage, and i think they are from Britanny, in the North-West of France.

  18. Jurassic of the north of France

    Yesterday Natalie and me went on a windy fieldtrip to the coast of the north of France, this time searching for jurassic ( Titionian ) fossils. Although this site is less productive than the late cretaceous sites in the area we always manage to find some iteresting things. Most of the comon fossils here are bivalve "steinkerns" but from time to time we find ammonites and bone fragments of marine reptiles. the first decent find was a rib fragment of marine reptile, the piece was well embedded in the matrix and very brittel, I managed to get it out, but in a lot of fragments. This wil be a puzzle to put back together once the pieces are dry. Halfway the clay cliffs Natalie found a huge ammonite between the boulders. we removed as much matrix as possible and helped with a fragment of fishnet from the beach we dragged the fossil back to the car
  19. Belemnite or Ammonite?

    Need help identifying the following fragment. Took it out of the limestone in the locality Theokafta of the Argolis Peninsula, near the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus (Greece, eastern Peloponnesus). The limestone contains condensed ammonoid beds of the Hallstatt facies (Triassic: Anisian–Ladinian). Since I've never seen an ammonite with a cigar shaped ending and the belemnite fossils I've see so far are bullet shaped, I would really appreciate your opinion on the matter! The size is 5cm and diameter 1,5 to 2cm.
  20. After so many people showing an Interest in the Golden Cannonball Nodule, I though I’d start a thread to document my Yorkshire finds and prep, be they ammonites, bone, or what ever else. Hope you all enjoy
  21. Thought this would be an interesting one for anybody overseas, who has never heard of Yorkshire’s Golden Cannonballs. Theyre only found in the UK along the Yorkshire coastline. With a 1/15 chance of having something inside, it’s safe to say they can be quite rare, and are always sought after. More often than not, they either contain one, or multiples of Eleganticeras ammonites inside. I’ll never tire of finding them. Theyre found in the shake jet rocks, and take hours to polish up the iron pyrite to give them their golden glow of you like. Here’s one I recently prepared.
  22. Is it looks a 'bite mark'?

    I saw this Madagascar ammonite on website and wonder hole(?) On its surface could be a bite mark. Actually, i've never seen bite mark like this but i looking forward to any new information about it. Thanks.
  23. Hello. So I need to know and confirm about this. Today, my family went to an outdoor swap meet, and from there I got this. Shortly after buying this, I started to question its reliability a bit. I'm no expert on fossils and how to tell fakes, so I was wondering if you guys can deduce if it's real or fake. Excuse me for the webcam quality. Thanks.
  24. Getting into a new activity typically requires a lot of learning. One of the things I am learning is pretty basic; how to look at what I have and actually see what I have. Seeing sometimes requires recognizing patterns overlooked on first glance. And sometimes it takes me awhile to see what I have. This picture is a nice case in point. I picked it up last summer and kept it because it had a nice shell impression, which I marked with the red tag. I mailed it home, washed it off, looked at it and put it on the shelf in my somewhat dark office. Around Christmas I moved it to a brighter area of the house and there it sat for a couple of weeks. One evening as the sun hit it, I noticed the curved pattern of an ammonite, which I marked with the blue dot. A day or two later I realized the ammonite had an additional ring. This piece, which I picked up for one reason turned out to have much more interesting when I actually saw what I had. It is an invitation to look at other pieces with a sharper eye, and finding that some fairly ordinary finds are actually much more interesting than they appeared on first look. I imagine anyone more skilled would have realized at the outset what they had, but for me it was discovery after discovery. Neat. Looking at this picture now, I can image you thinking how could he miss that, it is so clear? But not to the untrained eye, at least me eye. Have any of you had similar experiences? Tom
  25. Pierre Shale, South Dakota Help

    It is so cold in the Chicagoland area I decided to go through fossils that I have not looked at in years. I came across a little container that contained a couple items that I collected back in the early 90’s. I am 99% sure that I collected thenm from the Pierre Shale along I-90, West of Wall Drug. I know there is a small portion of an Ammonite, but I wonder about the other pieces. I believe they all came out of the same concretion.
