  1. Pseudoscorpion

    Burmese amber is around 99.6 mya. There are various other inclusions in this piece. Edit: According to Danilo Harms from the University of Hamburg, this is a juvenile Chernetidae member.
  2. New toy - microscope

    I treated myself to a binocular microscope just before Christmas. Just showing off some amber inclusions with a little manipulation including stacking.
  3. I’ve been looking at some Amber to purchase. What do you guys think of this piece? They are claiming it is a mosquito in Myanmar amber and 100 Ma in age. I’ve never dealt with amber so this could be an interesting addition.
  4. Scorpion in amber

    From the album Fossil Collection

    Scorpion caught in amber. Note the hole - it was unfortunately intended to be a pendant.
  5. Unlucky Scorpion

    From the album Fossil Collection

    This unlucky scorpion got stuck in some tree sap a long time ago.

  9. Hi, This is my first topic so, if i broke some forum rule or doing something wrong, please tell me, sorry. Also, english is not my native language, im trying to write correctly. Ok, im very very newbie in fossil subject but love science and decided to start my own collection. Well, i found this (pictures bellow). The owner received as a gift and has no extra information, just they came from a north america store's. Well, my main question is: this trilobite is real? What is that in her "head" (cephalon, right?) ? I mean, i know some cracks in fossils are signs of autenthicity but something like that? Maybe the original fossil is missing this part and the preparer tried to fix? Or it's normal? And.. its a phacops? (i know the picture is bad, not focused) How about this ammonite and amber? Are they real ? Thank you very much for any information !
  10. 10 Fossil Mushrooms Ever Found

    Here is an interesting article about the only 10 fossilized mushrooms that have been found. We should point this article out the next time (any day now) that someone shows us a picture of their fossilized mushroom. Of the 10 found, one is a compression/impression; the rest are amber inclusions. No 3D petrified mushrooms have ever been found. The hard part: remembering where to find the article when I need it. https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/115m-year-old-mushroom-oldest-fossilized-fungus-180963634/ @Auspex @Kane @Fossildude19
  11. Amber inclusion ID please

    Hi guys, 3mm long in Baltic amber. Was wondering if this was a seed or a leaf? Best images I can do I'm afraid. @Amber Man

  13. I need help with this scale pattern. Snake or lizard? Cenomanian cretaceous
  14. Possible amber from New Jersey

    Hello! I found this a while back around Big Brook Park in Monmouth County, New Jersey (not a place you would expect to find amber) and was wondering if that is what I have here. Also, I don't see any reason amber couldn't be here but have never found any in this location, so IF it is, could we looking at possible contamination or do you think it originated here. As always, all help is greatly appreciated! -Frank
  15. Although lizards are prime material for fakers, i think this tail is authentic. It is an unusial cast fossil. Kind of like a ghost form. It seems that the tail became detached. Much like they do today. This is cenomanian age amber. From Myanmar kachin state.
  16. 20mm of Cretaceous Reptile skin in amber... Fabulous!
  17. Here's a shrimp-like Cretaceous Dipluran with two Ticks. Gorgeous piece!
  18. Cretaceous mushroom in amber????

    I need help in identifying this. Is it a mushroom in Cretaceous burmese amber? Cenomanian burmite from machine state?
  19. Amber inclusion, seed?

    Hello, could anybody help me with identification of this piece poping out of the amber? It's 5mm (0,2 inch) long and at first sight it looks like a seed. I don't know where is this piece of amber from. Thanks for any help.
  20. Hi, I have what seems to be a female scale insect acarii(?) that still seems to have unfertilized/ stillborn young in a couple of sacks. 2nd photo, the pebble like things in the center of the body. The first photo is the famous specimen in the earlier stage of brooding. My specimen may be a late stage one. What do you make of it?
  21. My fossil collection

    This is my fossil collection please show us yours!!! These are my display fossils only The first picture is a large unidentified fossil shark tooth I recently bought from a local fossil store. The second is my display collection I put fossils in once they have been prepared or bought. The next photo is Madagascar copal it is about 9 million years old and it has multiple inclusions including fly's, wasps, and spiders. The next is an unidentified fish fossil in good shape but not too valuable. The fifth fossil is a trilobite (paralejurus) in Devonian limestone it is 385 million years old and was found in morocco I know the most about this one. And last but not least is my small polished chunk of Baltic amber it is 35-50 million years old and contains a winged insect inclusion as you probably know amber is fossilised tree resin and copal is hardened tree resin that is not quite fossilised. Thanks, HAPPY HUNTING!!!!!!!
  22. Fossils in Helsinki Finland?

    Hi everyone! In a few days I am going to Helsinki in Finland to visit my girlfriend who is currently studying there. But now was my question, are there any fossils to be found in or around Helsinki? I suppose baltic amber might be found at beaches, but does anyone know of other things or specific places where one could find anything? I won't be taking any digging materials with me, so I am really looking at things you can just pick up like amber, shark teeth, fossilized bivalves or stray fossils in boulders (don't know if it is a proper translation but zwerfsteenfossielen as we call them in Dutch). If anyone known anything that would really be helpfull! Also does anyone know anything about the fossil laws in Finland and does anyone know any fossil or mineral shops in Helsinki? Thanks in advance!
  23. Cretaceous Cenomanian Leaf Cutter Ant (?) Please Id

    I am at a loss on how to verify if this is a leaf cutter ant. If it is it is far older than anything yet discovered on leaf cutter ants. Notice the square shaped leaf fragment near its face. I don't know what it might be if not the ant's prize. Science says that these insects started to cultivate fungus in the tertiary. Advice?
