  2. Any opinions on this clutch of eggs?Real,faked?Thanks

  4. Today I decided to drive 75 miles to a auction that was taking place near my house, yes I consider 75 miles near my house. This auction usually runs for several hours and has various items for sale, the bulk being Native American artifacts from the area and on most occasions, fossils. I had checked the info on auction prior to deciding if I wanted to go and seeing that they had a couple large mammoth teeth, I decided to go. Unfortunately when I arrived I learned that some of the pictures that were posted were from an auction several months ago that I did not attend. There were oth
  5. Hi, next month I am going to Paleotime, a fossil fair in Belgium and I am hoping to find a Keichousaurus fossil. Now I know their are lots of fakes out there (although after doing some reading on this forum most of them I came to the understanding most of them aren’t entirely faked, just enhanced, painted and composites) And I am going to be honest, I don’t really care that much if the Keichou is a little bit enhanced of painted. But I hope to find a specimen that is at least 75 % or more authentic. So I was hoping if you guys could give me some tips as to what I should look for wh
  6. This is another update from one of my older posts where we questioned whether or not my dinosaur track slate is authentic or fake. A reliable friend helped me out with this mission. A lot of controversy was behind this fossil. This thick paint/polish applied to these rocks makes it very difficult to determine what is actually is. I decided to completely start from scratch and remove all paint. When I purchased these tracks, I knew little to nothing about these matters...Now I want to share this post to help anyone else who is interested in buying a dinosaur track online to avoi

    Opalized Ammontes

    Hi all, Recently saw an opalized ammonite out at a rock and fossil shop in Colorado. It was really quite beautiful but as I'm pretty much an amateur when it comes to identifying fossils, I have concerns about its authenticity. I'm wondering if anyone can give tips on how to spot fakes. thank you!
  8. How real does this look to ya'll
  9. Hi everyone. I've come across this hadrosaur egg on a well known fossil/gem dealer's site. It's described as from the "Xixia Basin, in the Henan province of China", which research tells me has an embargo on hadrosaur eggs. It's a very well known gem/fossil site selling it, and states "This fossil specimen will come with a certificate of authenticity." (Authenticated by who exactly? Sure...) Naturally these pictures are as good as the resolution gets, and the price point (over $1k USD) seems pretty high risk for a possible fake. I've stayed away from eggs in the past
  10. Hi all, I am an amateur fossil collector and ever since reading the book "Trilobite! eyewitness to evolution" by Richard Fortey I have been extremely interested in trilobites. as a result I was wondering where one buys a real trilobite specimen from and how you can guarantee its real or at least what do you look for in a fake/ real trilobite? I also would like to know if there are any reputable dealers in New Zealand or ones that deliver to New Zealand. Thanks in advance for your help.
  11. Came across these ridiculous fakes this morning. Disturbing how many people are bidding on them. "Mammal Fossil" "Chimera fish fossil" "Butterfly fossil" "Dragonfly Fossil" "Scorpion fossil" on the same slab as "dragonfly" and "fish fossil" on the backside of same slab... Continued...
  12. Chinese are now faking Butterfly and Dragonfly fossils. Here are some examples of some current auctions. They are getting sneakier, for sure. Buyer, beware....

    Fossil Dino Teeth

    Here's a dinosaur tooth I found today by my bench grinder. I only spent 15 minutes on it but I can see where with a little more work someone could be fooled into buying it. Ordovician "Grewenkia" dino teeth I started on a Miss. tooth, but discovered it was covered in Beekite, I decided to polish it any way, so here it is.
  14. hello at the fossil forum! as my introduction to the forum: i readily admit that i have no knowledge re: fossils - i am, however, fascinated - as probably many laypeople out there. plus we live very close to a popular fossil site. recently, i followed up on my fascination and obtained 3 fossils (just some simple trilobites ;-)) from a US seller on ebay - although i am well aware of all the fakes that are cruising... since they did not cost a whole lot, i decided to 'go for it' but i am now left wondering if these are 'too pretty to be true'... here are a few pictures and your comments are
