  1. Any feedback on the authenticity and quality of these 2 fossils? I'm assuming the quality of the brittle star is not top notch, as the seller didnt provide close up photos but fir the right price, I might still buy it if it is authentic. Any advice will be much appreciated as I learned a lot from my recent post of a similar nature!
  2. I know I'm not the only one that doesn't live near good fossil deposits, which means that i'm not the only one that has to buy or trade fossils from time to time to build the collection. I thought it would be fun to have an ongoing thread to share our latest great score that we didn't personally find in nature, a thread to share your latest fossil purchase or trade. Let's see what you found at the local fossil show, online or anywhere else other than in the ground.
  3. Allosaurus

    England Ammonites

    I picked up 3 ammonites last summer and was told they were from England, but with no additional information such as age or locality :(. I'm hoping someone out here might be able to help me ID them to genus or perhaps even have ideas as to where they originate. #1
  4. I_gotta_rock

    Sabre-Toothed Herring Tooth

    Vertebrate material of any kind is extremely rare at this locality. However, this is the most common vertebrate represented at Reedy Point. Found while sifting through micro matrix collected from an especially prolific, recently exposed spot that will soon be removed by bulldozers.
  5. I was lucky enough to find a crab concretion, and not knowing what it was, opened it with a hammer. I included images below for reference of what I am talking about. * Part of the leg and claw are in imprint. What is the best approach getting them out without damage? I'm thinking manual tools? * It looks like there might be another concretion connected to that piece. Would I be able to freeze-thaw to open it now that the other fossil is exposed or could this cause damage?

    Dinosaur Egg?

    I'm looking at what is being called a dinosaur egg (actually a pteradactyl egg, which I think is incorrect as it is too big). The seller says it was found in southern Minnesota. The seller says it was found 14 years ago and at the time, two people at the museum of natural history said it was a pteradactyl egg and showed where the beak is curled around the ball section in the middle. She said it split naturally. In looking at it using the information I've found on the internet and at this site; I'm wondering if it is a concretion of mud around a foreign body. I really want this to be a foss

    Glycymeris Clam Internal Mold

    Glycymeris clams have ridges along the inside edge of the valves that extend past the cardinal area. Internal molds tend to include these teeth, making them very distinctive. As of the time this was posted, this was the only member of the genus listed in the Paleobio Database for the Cretaceous period and it is only listed as being found in NJ. However, Stuart Weller (1907) and Horace G Richards (1958) not only include them in the C and D Canal zone, but identify three different species for the region. This one is the most common and the only one THEY found outside of NJ.
  8. Brachiopods

    Fossilized nut or fig?

    Hi all, This fossil was found along one of the tributaries of the Crystal River in Florida It appears to be some sort of fossilized fig or nut. Does anyone here have any ideas as to its age or species? A fossilized horse tooth and a Savannah River arrowhead were found nearby. I believe the arrowhead is more recent than the fossils.

    Found today in Portugal

    Hello all, I found this fossil today at Portugal, Lisbon district, about 270 meters high. Anyone knows what it is? Thanks for your help. Best regards
  10. Howdy everyone. I have found some great resources on here for finding cretaceous fossils here in Texas. I also fiddled around the coast and found a turtle scute and some shark teeth. I'm having a really hard time finding any information of places that are open to the public, or for that matter any spots in Texas open to the public (as 97.8% of the state is privately owned) If any Texans read this and wanna help a fellow fossiler out, please point me towards some good spots. I live in Corpus Christi (2 1/2 hours from San Antonio or 7+ hours to Dallas so please nothing too
  11. Which do you prefer to Mold or Cast - Why? Secondary question is have you ever used a vice to break shale or sandstone? I started do this and seem to get good results.
  12. Hi guys! I am looking for new areas to hunt for rocks and fossils around the KC area. I have been to the Blue river, Kansas river, Cedar creek, Tuttle creek, Perry Lake, Mill creek, and abandoned quarry areas. Anyone have any general locations of where I can find some stuff? I am an avid hunter for all sorts of fossils and rocks (rockhounding is my favorite past time)! I've had the most luck at the Kansas river and Perry lake. Some of my finds include cow skulls, cone coral, shells, agates, vertebrae, and a bunch of druzy quartz geodes and chalcedony. I ha
  13. Hi all, I'd appreciate any input you have on this piece please. I bought a lot at auction only labelled 'North Sea Pleistocene'. I live in the UK, so there's a fair bit of coast that can get North Sea fossils washed up, usually nowadays seems to be Norfolk area - unfortunately I have no way of knowing whether that is the locale. This measures 170x100x50MM approx at its longest/widest points. I suspect its from a sort of deer/small horse sized mammal but don't really have any further ideas. It could have broken off something larger. Thanks in advance for a
  14. I_gotta_rock


    As battered as this is, it is an unusually well-preserved specimen for this locality. Although there are brachiopods and bivalves that preserved as calcium carbonate at this locatlity, most gastropods in the Cretaceous of Delaware are either steinkerns or are preserved as battered phosphate with phosphate in-fill. Gouging appears to have occurred after fossilization since the matrix does not completely fill the gouges. Most shell predation at Reedy Point came from clionia sponges and boring clams. This resembles neither. This was found in loose sand from dredge spoils.

    Glen Rose Texas ID help

    GlenRose Formation 105 - 115 MYA Found near roadcut in San Antonio First I want to warn you, These are low quality photos due to it being night and having a dim light in translucent glass.

  17. Crusty_Crab

    Cretaceous Macro Fossil?

    This was found in the Turonian aged marine deposits of the Ladd Formation of Orange County, California. The size is .5 cm along the longest axis. Any ideas as to what this may be?
  18. KcLu

    What is this?

    This was found at the Virginia/Maryland Aquia Formation, Potomac River. It’s about 3 inches (7.6 cm) long and 1.5 inches (3.8 cm) wide. I have an idea of what I think/want it to be but would like the opinion of someone more experienced. Thanks for any help!

    Vinctifer Comptoni

    I am very proud of this large Vinctifer Comptoni fossil from the Cretaceous of Brazil. I made a custom stand for it so that it will always stand tall.

    Show us your chimaeroids

    Hi guys, I thought I’d start a thread for what is in my opinion, one of the most under appreciated group of marine vertebrate fossils. Anyway, to provide some info on these ratfish and why I find them so interesting, primarily I am drawn in by their rarity. Unlike sharks, that shed their teeth on a regular basis, these fish have one set for life! Anyway, enough talk, more fossils, I will start with some very uncommon jurassic ones, if anyone has any, please add to the thread

    Found in dry riverbed in middle TN.
