  1. Today's curious finds

    Interesting little 'rocks' from today. 2 may be nothing, 2 I'm pretty sure about, and 2, seem to be imprints. Hope you guys can tell me. Again, Half Moon Bay. Also, how do I clean these?
  2. Imprint? Or just a rock?

    The last time I went to this beach was the first time I posted here, also my first time at that beach. I'm not even sure the name of it. I do know it's in Half Moon Bay, Ca. This rock has the waviness on both sides, and fossil or not is, pretty cool. But is it a fossil? Also, never fpind any fossils before the first time I posted. Or, maybe I did. I didn't realize they were fossils until my girlfriend said "hey, a fossil"
  3. Random rock or fossil?

    My daughter insisted I bring this home, and I wondered if it's a fossil or just an interesting rock.
  4. Hawthorne Group question

    I have a question. So I live in Florida, and looking a the map I am attaching I live in the Hawthorne Group. So.... if I dig in a creek am I likely to find fossils? I'm trying to look at these geological maps and distinguish areas which are likely to yield fossils. Particularly shark teeth. Can anyone school me up in this department? Thank you!!
  5. Fossil Toe Bone?

    Is this a toe bone?
  6. Tonight, I was trying to pull up directions for a friend to the wonderful astrodapsis collection site in scotts valley...seems that this site has been posted with no trespassing signs...as indicated by a few posts i've seen online..if this is indeed true...its a loss of a valuable site...its an area that was collector friendly for kids and beginners...it was a wonderful spot that started many collections..I will miss this spot.
  7. Today, I checked out a show in Los Altos, CA (town between Palo Alto and Mountain View, northern California). It's the 5th Annual "Recreation with Rocks" taking place Saturday and Sunday (Oct 20-21) at the Los Altos Civic Center Youth Center at One N. San Antonio Road. It's a couple of miles south of the intersection of San Antonio Road and El Camino Real. There are signs for it around that intersection. The venue was rather small - basically classroom size - though it was well-attended in the time I was there. The only fossil dealer was the same one who had set up at the Santa Clara Valley Gem and Mineral Society show last spring and had offered specimens from the Lemkau collection. Norm and Betty Lemkau were well-known and well-respected in California (they lived in Castro Valley) and beyond for decades - members of a few clubs including MAPS. They used to set up a display case at the SCVGMS show (and others) with some great and self-collected stuff from California and they would hang out at the shows for a few hours. They collected a little of everything but Betty loved trilobites in particular. I met them in the late 80's when I was starting to collect fossils and would see them every year, trading with them at least once. Norm passed away around 2001 and Betty in 2010. The dealer still had several of the same specimens on the tables from the spring show, and he had done at least one other show this year, so he was making deals right and left. One of my friends picked up a great mammoth tooth from Texas and a few other things. I bought a 2-tooth beaver (Castor californicus) maxilla section from the Kettleman Hills (Late Pliocene, San Joaquin Formation) and a rather large camel tooth from a site around Ocala, Florida. I had hunted exposures of the San Joaquin Formation in the 90's (Chevron stopped allowing collecting on the property about ten years ago) but never found any beaver teeth or any other vertebrate remains so that was a great purchase for me (only $5 - same price for the camel tooth). He had a nice gar from Messel, a few ammonites, trilobites, and some shark teeth. He also had some flats full of various fossils and a couple of flats of Mazon Creek ferns. If you're in the area, you should check it out too. The show hours are 10am-5pm. Website: http://www.pggs.org/
  8. Tube Worms?

    Can anyone identify these? About an inch in diameter, and inch long, found 1 hr north of san francisco along coast.
