  1. hello all, just wondering if you know any LEGAL PUBLIC fossil sites open to the public in Canada, Ontario?
  2. This ammonite came from the base camp of Mt. Everest, on the Tibet side. I am looking for help with ID. The area is Jurasic, but don;t know the formation. Thanks in advance for your help.
  3. Hi Everyone! I hope this finds everyone well and I love the new look! (thats how long Ive been gone) I was on here last year buggin everyone for tips on prepping and unfortunately, I work a job that does not allow me the time much time to prep during the summer, but I have been practicing a little here and there. I do have AWESOME NEWS! my amazing husband got me a CP9160!! (I actually squealed when i opened the box) I'm ready to hunker down with my magnifying light and prep! Here are 3 I have been practicing on, just getting the hang of the air scribe, and not blowing nacre to oblivion (as opposed to chipping away at it with my electric engraver).... I have looked at a bunch of different "glues" but do you guys have any recommendations for keeping things together as I work? I was scoping out Paleobond, but I have no idea which one to get to select based on porousness. I'd post "before" pics, but I didnt actually take any since I was just dinkin and was surprised at what I have been uncovering. The first 2 actually had very little showing. And Im debating how to remove that large amount of matrix on the first one. The last one has some cool odds and ends so I thought Id try and clean it up some. ::Edit:: I lied, I found one - the first picture is the before of the 2nd picture. -Dessa
  4. hi, i bought this big ammonite to prepare, a megalytoceras maybe, any suggestions? i dont want to ruin it.
  5. This came as a pleasant surprise. I was going through some shells collected from years ago, and when I was done, I saw that some sand has fallen off, probably from inside a gastropod. Among the sand was this ammonite, only 2mm in length. I don't know which shell it came off, or where it may be from. Most of my shells are from Hong Kong, but I have also collected in several other East Asian countries. I have read that Sulciferites hongkongensis, Coroniceras sp., and Arietites sp. have been found in Hong Kong, but don't know whether there are other species. I also found this passage from page 427 of "Biostratigraphy of China" on Google Books which might be relevant: Might it be possible to narrow down the ID or age from the pictures? Thanks in advance!
  6. Greetings Fossil enthusiasts- My sister brought me a wonderful gift when she got home yesterday. It will always keep its sentimental value to me, but I'm curious if this fossil is real or fake? I've been looking up and down all over the internet and I have no clear cut answer so I'm hoping one of you can help me. I have a hunch it is a fake of some sort- but it's still neat nonetheless. I appreciate any and all feedback. Thank you, and have a wonderful day friends. Pictured is the specimen flipped to show both sides.
  7. I've recently bought this fossil from a seller on Instagram and these are the seller's pictures, but after some recent digging, I was introduced to the reality of counterfeit and fake ones. Does this one look real or fake? The seller doesn't have location of discovery and I've been trying to google how to learn whether it's real or fake but I haven't gotten far. Thanks for your time!!
  8. Out hunting today in Whitby UK, having a lovely walk in the nice weather but finding nothing, literally back to the end ready to go back to car and this was lying between rock's, had a look and seen the nice gold keel sticking out, usual trick would be hammer blows to side to expose but I'm learning to be patient... prep pen is the way, cheers. Alan.

  10. Hi all, This is from the central Negev area in Israe. About 30mm in diameter. If needed I can upload more photos from different angles. Many thanks, Oz
  11. Was out hunting today and noticed a concretion under a large chunk of shale, had a peek and noticed the Ammonite, I've looked in books and online but can't really ID it as most the spiked ammonites are a lot thicker, have yet to open it as don't want to mess any of the spikes up as they do look delicate, I don't have a prep pen yet as I'm still pretty new to this, you think worth having it prepped or open it up carefully ? Was found on Yorkshire coast near Whitby, thanks... Alan
  12. I took a long 8 - 10 mile hike at NSR. The weather was beautiful and wildlife abundant. I saw hogs, deer, beaver, hawks, ducks and geese among others. I picked up a nice variety of fossils. I really like the Xiphactinus jaw with replacement tooth showing. I sat down to take a break and found 4 shark teeth in one area. The little fossilized turtle scute is also cool.
  13. Hello. Please help me with this ammonite.. I am a newbie with fossiles.. what is this spec of ammonite, how old and how much is worth etc... thankyou
  14. Opened up a decent sized nodule to find this ammonite, not the usual I would come across and with nice markings, sadly the outer part had been crushed but managed to free the inner, I will remove the matrix from the centre later, I believe it could be an Oxynoticeras but not sure, any ideas ? Thanks.
  15. Hi all! For the holidays, I am enjoying a nice relaxation at my grandparents house in Middelburg (NL). We were planning on hunting at Kaloot for sharkteeth and seashells, unfortunately the bad weather prevented it . My grandma, being a sculptor (Hanneke Beaumont, if you're interested in sculpture you might know her), brought me to her atelier today for me to make something myself. I had already made a few things a few years back, so the material wasn't very new to me. 1) an Euoplocephalus in its habitat 2) an Acrocanthosaurus resting its head on a tree (because its head is too heavy ) Today, I wanted to make something new, so I decided, after a bit of brainstorming, to make a re-creation of what Lyme Regis (UK) looked like 200 million years ago, basing my idea on the fossils from the Blue Lias formation found there (ammonites, belemnites, coral, fish, marine reptiles, etc). I am using this picture for ideas on the background. I am nowhere near finished, as for now I have only worked on it for one morning. I am planning on finishing it though as quickly as possible. This is what I have done till now: Sorry for it being wet, but I had to make it wet so that it wouldn't dry up immediately. The big lumps are meant to represent rocks on the seafloor, and the tubes plus the othe thing are meant to be coral. In the middle lies an ammonite shell half-buried in the sand. Detail on the ammonite: Detail on the corals: I am going to add still a small Dapedium fish, a big ammonite and a big belemnite, then add a few more small details. I will return this afternoon and tomorrow morning, and will of course keep you updated of the progress! I hope the end result will be good! Best regards, Max
  16. Hi, i'm doing some practice of fossils prep, like i wrote in the title im looking for some unprepared fossils , better if from uk or europe. if someone got some let me know. thanks!
  17. The photos presented here are thin sections of a single chamber of an Ammonite. I recently obtained some broken fossil pieces from "Rocks and Gems Canada " for the purpose of slicing them and making thin sections for viewing through a microscope. The first samples are from a Chambered Ammonite. The area of interest is the filling in the chambers. If I am lucky there will be crystal formation, but most of the time it is just fill. This is a web presentation of the photos below The first two photos are the whole Ammonite as I received it. Photo one is a camera snapshot. Photo two is a stereo microscope composite of the Ammonite. The following photos are 1) Polarized light, 2) Polarized light with a Dark Field filter in place. Photos three and four are a single cell of the Ammonite showing what looks like crystal formations. Photos five and six a 4mm segment of the chamber edge. Photos seven and eight show a 1mm segment of a chamber edge.
  18. I ordered a couple of caliper stands and one is for this little beauty! This is Hoploscaphites nicoletti. One of the best I have. I now wish I could find a caliper stand that is black in color. I think the shiny brass takes away from the specimen? Also, I just wish you could see the real color this has. The picture doesn't do it justice. RB
  19. I'm heading across the ditch for a holiday in April and was hoping to spend a couple of days checking out some fossil sites. Anyone got any suggestions? Would love to find some ammonites and trilobites, also any bone fragments.
  20. (although I don't know how I feel about processing lovely ammonites into other things )
  21. Hey all, Here is an ammonite I got from a museum as a very small kid. I have no clue about where it was found and what age it has... Any clue of the species??? Also, if you perhaps know where it could have been found (and it's age), that would be fantastic! Any help appreciated! Best regards, Max
  22. hi all, i just bought this ammonite for preparation, this will be my first preparation ever, any good advice? didnt really know how to start.
  23. Hey guys, I saved these from going to the landfill or being ground up and used as fill. A large stock pond was being dug on a friends property and I grabbed these when I saw them. I have had them since about 2012. I believe they're pieces of an ammonite or ammontites. I'd really like any info anyone can give me. And yes I have read up on google but it's difficult to to google something that you're unsure of, ya dig? (Fossil pun)
  24. I went on two trips last Thursday and Friday. The first trip lasted approximately four hours and the second was around five and half. I surface scanned about half of the time during the first trip but did not do so at all during the second trip; this was due to some already looking over the places I went on the second trip. On both trips I explored different areas of the streams.
  25. Couple weeks ago I was able to find a day off to go and look for some dead things...:) Denton is 5 hrs away from Houston but I wanted to go there and explore the surrounding areas, left Houston early, arrive at 11am and spent until 6pm when the sun decided it was enough for me...and then back to Houston. I arrived at midnight happy and tired. A Brown / Reddish Ammo and what I believe is a FAT Nautilus where the best finds of the day. I thought the nautilus was way bigger than the Ammo but both are exactly 8 inches in diameter, however the Nautilus has easily twice the mass. Three in situ pics are shown. I was able to work for 4-5 hrs at HGMS on the Ammo and I show how it looks now.
