  1. Barbados

    It has been a busy 5 years and my wife and hadn’t made time for a honeymoon...until now. Greetings from Barbados, the only place I know of where you can order a flying fish sandwich, and if you aren’t paying attention, a gaggle of marauding green monkeys just might sneak it off your plate and head back up into the trees. We’ve been here one day and found some fossils. I believe I read that most of the island is a massive Pleistocene coral reef, and the beach cliff right outside our hotel is testament to that.
  2. Coral? Agate? Something else?

    Hi I hope this is OK to post here as I have seen others asking about other fossils which aren’t exactly in their original form... I picked this ring up at a thrift store because the color just screamed coral to me... I thought it may have just been a costume piece but apparently it is most likely an antique. I polished it up and I am now fairly certain it could be red coral. It is hard for me to get a really good close up pic since I only have an iPad but if anyone has any tips on IDing coral that doesn’t involve sticking any acid on it since it is possibly a valuable antique. I have a little 15x lens and up close the “banding” actually looks more like finger prints or light layers..which is what the other photos of coral cabocons seem to have. I posted it in an antique jewelry group but no one was knowledgeable about coral...the best guesses they has was agate or glass (defiantly NOT glass)..so I thought I would ask the best fossil identifiers in the world.. thanks you! I will post the original and polished photos.
  3. Deja Vu all over again

    Back in 2015, on a FPS trip, I found a 3 mya fossil coral that @digit and/or @MikeR identified as Scolymia cubensis. https://www.researchgate.net/figure/FIGURE-2-Scolymia-species-from-Brazil-A-B-New-occurrence-specimen-of-Scolymia-cubensis-UFBA_237012399_fig2 Fast forward to a Christmas gift a fossil hunting friend gave to my spouse (She has a coral collection and I do not find that much of it) . He said that he found it in the Keys in the 1980s. I guess I should know but is this also Scolymia? Also a question on coral fossils. I know that from 2015 I have a 3 mya coral because it came from Tamiami Formation and experts indicated the age of the layer and shells I was finding. Is this new one a fossil? Can I approximate its age?
  4. Cretaceous Horn Coral, Cen Tex

    I recently found these horn corals in a road cut near Gatesville TX. I am not as familiar with Cretaceous stuff so thought yall could help me ID. Thanks
  5. Shell in coral?

    Hi there everyone new to the forums! I found this item in Christies Beach South Australia in my front yard digging out a hole for plants. Could be a very common item but I would love to know a little more about it! Found it inside what seemed to be a limestone pocket. There was also other types of fossilized coral and a few different varieties of fossilized shells in the pocket/crack.
  6. Baby, It's Cold Outside

    The hubbub of the holidays is over. The cold, crisp air has descended here in the Mid-Atlantic. The ground is frozen, but I was craving sunshine and the hunt. With blue skies today and the promise of snow tomorrow, I headed to the one place I was reasonably certain wouldn't be completely frozen -- the Delaware Bay. After all, we put salt on the roads here to keep them from freezing. How cold is it this week? Cold enough to freeze salt water! Here and there, exposed spots dotted the beach and the highest part of the bank, above the high tide line, was still exposed. There were a few pebbles here and there, but the odds of finding something in such scant gravel wasn't promising. I spent the next hour with a friend, exploring the ice formations with cameras. Still, my beloved beach did not disappoint. I found a couple of little favosites corals in the freezing tide pools and a 3-inch chunk of local petrified wood lying along the trash line. There is something ironic about finding petrified - silicified - wood frozen to the beach sand!
  7. Hello! I would need help to figure out if this special type of calcite mineralisation reflects the structure of the coral or it is just something that comes with de disolution of calcite and therefore would not be a source of info on the coral morphology. Thank you in advance Best wishes Pierrette
  8. Montego Bay

    Although fossil finding was not part of our vacation itinerary, fossils found us. After our boat docked outside of the strip just outside the town of Montego Bay, there was a large shelf of limestone filled with coral fossils. I had just been snorkelling in the living coral reef at Secrets Bay, and it was fabulous to see corals in living colour with all those abundant tropical fish eddying about. The limestone here dates between the Mesozoic and Cenozoic, and is largely dominated by coral. Some of the specimens in the rock have very nicely defined corallites. As I didn't think to bring a rock hammer on vacation, I did manage to find a loose rock to hack out a few small specimens. This first batch shows these corals in their raw, in situ context:

  11. I found this whils diving in British Columbia...I have been all around this lake, and only found this type of stone in one area...still not sure what it is. However, I had seen petoskey coral un cut, and it seems to be similar?? But, further reading says it ONLY exists in Michigan. The "pits are on both sides and are about 1/4 " to .25 of an inch deep...

  13. To draw a horn coral.

    Hi all, This week I continue to work at escaping my incompetence in the art of paleo art drawings by posting this weeks attempt. I thought this one would be easy - what could be more simple than a curved arc and some ribs, right? Oh man. I spent the better part of this week studying the morphology and growth of rugose corals! I had no idea they were so interestingly complex. My first attempts at going beyond stick figures did not go well, and you wont see those! Finally, after taking another hour and a half on line drawing course, I made another attempt, this time with pencil in hand - got it a lot closer to reality. Here is my pencil drawing of the basic shape, with out any shadows or shading: , Next, I tried to shade the body to look more 3d and then add a drop shadow. But I had NO idea what the shadow of such a shape would look like. I guessed at some sort of triangle. To help me get it right, I made a modelling clay model of a horn coral, and when it dried I had this to work with to find my shadow shape: Next I put the light on it at the right angle and set the orientation per the drawing: And the shadow I got was amazing. I had no idea it would look like this. Next, I added it to the drawing one light layer at at time. And the final drawing came out looking like this: ar I hope you like it. I learned so much about the shape and construction of these amazing animals in this process. I think I am slowly making progress in paleo art, the goal will be eventually put them in a paleozoic ocean scene and create a Permian Panorama. Thanks for looking,

  15. With respect to these materials I would like to make a request. I would need materials from type locations to compare it with my Spanish materials. These type localities are the following: All in the Czech Republic.

Standard procedure: personal message and we talk. I apologize for the spelling of the locations, for the tirade, for requesting something that seems difficult and strange, and for the rest of my crazy things. Without forgetting the fact that I express myself very badly in English. Greetings to all. Pachy
  16. CORAL COLONY

    Now, i found this when i was seven or eight years old, on the cut down to the beach at Kilve in Somerset, South West England. It was buried in a band of blue/ grey clay in the Psiloceras planorbis zone of the Blue Lias , Lower Jurassic. Although i'd found many lovely fossils before this was my first exceptional, "WOW!" find. I still don't know what it is and that was 45 years ago. A colonial coral colony yes, but i don't think it can be Liassic? A derived fossil from the Devonian or Carboniferous seems likely, but which one? And it shows very little signs of having been transported huge distances, as it's quite a way to the nearest relevant outcrops of those ages. Here it is :

    From the album Starting at the Beginning

    Beach finds I'd kept prior to becoming truly interested and adopting this as a hobby all surrounding a trace fossil that was one of a handful of pieces found 4 months ago that turned me into a real rock nerd! I liked how they look as a set, so I framed them and hung them on my wall.

  19. Coral? Mineralization?

    Found in a small stream in south east BC Canada. About 2km west of continental divide. It's very heavy for its size. The filaments have segments on many of them and have and organic appearance. Location would suggest Devonian or Permian I'm guessing. It's hard to know with fast flowing creek finds this high in the Rocky Mountains. Any info or ideas be appreciated. Cheers.
  20. Coral?

    Ok,so I found this on the golf course yesterday. At first I thought it was a lost ball or egg but when I picked it up I was amazed. The was most likely dropped by a random egg eating animal/bird once it realized it wasn't editable. I can not say where it came from for sure because I often find things dropped by other animals,it could of been picked up literally anywhere within a 5 miles radius of my location. Any ideas? (P.S. I did have to clean it,was caked with soft limestone like material)
  21. coral id

    the following appears to be a coral, or sponge? It is not my own find, a friend gifted them to me, he said his fisherman grandpa, found them in the water near the island. They are heavy-ish, very hard and sound like rocks when hit them with each other and other rocks. size: when placed next to each other 10cm x 4cm(to3cm) and 2cm thick. Also appart from the obvious shell which looks modern, there is a tiny white pointy edge - snail -like shell with vertical lines all around, and a hole on its side, that could also be fossil, unless that it is supposed to be so white when baby. (photo1 and 2, left piece, top right circle, u can see the baby shells opening and hole)
  22. Interesting coral - Morocco

    Hi all, I was perusing the gem show down in Tucson today and came across these interesting little corals. The vendor couldn't identify them except to say they were from Morocco and were coral. Anyone out there know what these are? They measure about 1 1/2" - 2" across.
  23. sponge/coral/sea plant

    2 photos of this. is 2.5 cm tall, in the area which is 3-5million years range i found also a lot of the 3rd photo, oysters and other fossillized stuff.
  24. Fossil ID confirmation, please

    Are these Astrangia lineata? They are from Aurora, North Carolina - Miocene. Thanks for your attention!
  25. From the album MY FOSSIL Collection - Dpaul7

    Fossil Coral - Zaphrentis spinulosum Chesterian Zone of the Bangor Limestone Formation in northern Alabama Mississippian Period (ca 325,000,000 years old) Zaphrentis is a genus (sometimes made the type of the family Zaphrentidae) of solitary cup-shaped tetracorals that are common in Paleozoic formations and have numerous septa radiating from a deep pit in one side of the cup. Zaphrentis is one of the most widely used names in Paleozoic coral paleontology. Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Cnidaria Class: Anthozoa Order: Rugosa Family: Zaphrentidae Genus: Zaphrentis Species: spinulosa
