  1. I made a "concentrated" study of the Georgetown formation -about an hour north of me (I usually hunt in the Glen Rose and Walnut of Texas) so it was fun to hit up four spots to see what different species I could find. I was happy to gather a good variety of specimens, including a couple of "best" specimens of common Texas finds - a lovely BIG Neithia scallop with both the top and bottom valve intact, a nice Ostrea carinata and lots of well preserved turritells, including the tiniest I've ever found. But the fun stuff is the Echinoids and the Ammonites! For the Echinoids: I FINALLY found a Salenia Mexicana (that didn't crumble in my hands like the LAST one I found) even if it is a bit water worn. I'm still happy with it. Plus an excellently preserved Heteraster obliquatus and a nice Phymosoma which is still encased in a bit of matrix, but that's okay. But my find of the day was the Tetragramma taffi (i'm pretty sure on that ID, let me know if I"m wrong!) Even thought it's quite squished and has a lot of matrix, it's still my first one, so I"m stoked!! The "other" fossils: A pyrite shell, not great, but cool because it's pyrite The Echinoids! Phymosoma Salenia mexicana: Tetragramma taffi a nice Heteraster:
  2. Geology club excursion to the coast of France This weekend we had a 2 day excursion to the northern coast of France. First up were the Cenomanian cliffs in that area, although the use of tools was limited we were allowed to collect in the boulders laying on the beach. The stormy weather had done a great job at providing fresh material, and lots of fossils could be picked up on the beach. The 2nd day we went a few kilometers to the south were late Jurassic cliffs are exposed. There were no restrictions on collecting here, although we stayed away from the cliffs for obvious safety reasons. The fossils were sparser than on the previous location, but with a little effort we found bivalves and gastropod steinkerns , ammonites and evan a few very nice echinoids. pictures from saturday: pictures from sunday:
  3. Trinity River tiny ammonite

    Is this called ammonite or another name for these specie? I found these at Dallas Trinity river grey clay / shale layer. I think these are upper cretaceous Austin chalk formation.
  4. Airabrading at last....

    So for several years i knew that getting better prepresults would have to include a air abrader. With my Junair silent compressor this was problematic as there is not enough airflow, so these last years i was limited to pen work.... A few month’s ago my beloved Junair got a leak in the tank, repair was not very cheap, so i upgraded to a much more powerful compressor, not silent but workable....I also bought a very old Renfert abrader, very cheap, which after replacing the filter set started to work very fine.... So here’s some prep results with this setup. At last i was able to prep a few of my finds from my 2012 trip to the Lafarge quarry at Belmont, France. Allthough i ‘m really happy with the results so far, it’s a very slow process, even with the replaced filterset on the Renfert. Some matrix is just too problematic for this Renfert machine. I’m not sure why, maybe it’s not effective enough, or maybe it’s because the unit is limited to 6 bar, so i cannot push it more..... At the moment i’m waiting my custom build Eckhard Petersen abrader, this unit should cover it. So i hope for more and better pix in the future....
  5. Ammonites from Nigeria!

    Hi, everyone! Recently I got some ammonites from Nigeria, but I can not found any reference. So I have no idea how many species of them, I need your help!
  6. Ammonites Bavaria

    Hello, I have found these ammonites a few years ago in Bavaria, Germany. These are found in an area roughly 20km from Solnhofen (Jurassic). I beleave the geological formation in this area is a little older then the formations in Solnhofen but i can't find proof if this. I hope these pics are of enough quality to provide an ID. Regards, Arno
  7. Hello everyone, I recently received this large 14inch ammonite and the shipper had no care in the world to put even an ounce of protection thus this is the result I'm not experienced with much prep and not confident superglue would cut it so what would you all recommend to help repair this specimen as well as clean off some of the dirt/dust layer coating alot of it?
  8. Ammonite Species

    ok to Dinosaur World, Plant City and there is this museum that has load of fossils and also has an exploration cave show in there and has loads of ammonite fossils but for 3 pics of these ammonite fossils is i dont know the species and the genus of them.
  9. It was raining this morning, so my best site was near Yaxley. The fossils really pop there when wet. In one hour of searching I had 13 fragments of ammonite. I thought it was 14, but when washing them realised one was a miffed snail, who is now in the garden. Mostly the ammonites are pyratised, and preserve sutures and ornamentation well. I found 8 crinoid sections, including round ossicles - I normally only find star shaped ones.

  25. This is getting to be a regular visit of mine, but this may be the last time for this garage sale that was being held by the daughter of two older ESCONI members who collected rocks and fossils all over the US and Canada. They had so much stuff, it could not be put out at one time, thus the weekly Saturday visits to see what was new. But before i put up the multiple picture heavy posts that will follow, I want to show a couple pictures of how some of the stuff was arranged. Today I was again got to meet the great Fossil Forum and ESCONI member Rich @stats, we spent time talking and revisiting items to make sure that we did not miss anything. Here are a picture of Rich searching for something good. Here are a couple pictures of the sale. Now before I post the items that I picked up today I want to show a couple pieces of Mazon Creek (MC) fossils that I picked up from the daughter after I went for an arrange showing of MC fossils on Tuesday. I wanted to see what they had since the were never put out before and I knew that others had set up similar visits in the past with her. I picked up the following pieces for $40.00 and though I do not generally buy MC fossils, I do love Annularia, and fertile ferns and I did get some. I also picked up Neuropteris, Alethopteris, Pecopteris and the Leech Coprinoscolex ellogimus. Now to my surprise, I picked you a couple pieces that struck my fancy and I sent a PM to Jack Witry @fiddlehead who gave me some surprising ID's to plants that I did not have in my collection. This piece I did not know the ID of this piece, but I did like the way it looked and I got it for $2.00. Jack stated that it "is a rare sterile example of Myriotheca scaberrima. He stated that an example of this species will be in his new Mazon Creek Flora book that will be coming out soon. This other piece I thought was a fertile Pecopteris and I just happened to send him a picture of it and my ID was wrong. Jack stated that it is an exceptional example of a fertile Diplazites unita. He stated that one of the interesting mysteries of the Mazon Creek flora is why 2 out of 3 examples of this taxon fertile. He further stated that no other fern except for some very rare taxa is anywhere near that ratio. Jack thanks again for your expertise and I can't wait to get your new book. Starting with the next post I will show some of the great stuff that I picked up today.
