  1. MIOCENE ISLAND

    I should have posted this long ago, but am going to do it now, in the hope that then it is behind me and then I can look forward to future adventures. Due to ill health from 2012, finances and responsibilities, I have been unable to do any personal collecting except for this one wonderful trip which reminded me that I've still got it in me. In October 2016 wifey and I were relaxing in a bar on Tarifa beach, the southernmost point in mainland Europe, located at the south-western corner of Spain, opposite Tangier, the two Pillars of Hercules that are the entrance to the Mediterranean from the Atlantic. I noticed an island connected to the mainland by a man made causeway. it had a lighthouse on and some ruins, so I thought that being only a little distance, I'd go and explore. Here is the location, to the left of the picture is the Mediterranean, to the right, the Atlantic. There are no more location pics, I'm afraid, as wifey can't be prised away from bars very easily and she has the camera phone, but the island was closed to visitors without a guide or permit as it's a place for protected birds, the lighthouse and Napoleonic fortress ruins. But to the left of the causeway was a small beach with exposed rocks and even a little notice board explaining that the rocks were a Miocene oyster bed 5 to 10 million years old. My interest was aroused so I clambered about the beach and found the fossils in the next post. Very pleased with myself, I was, especially as I had no tools and the rock was really seriously hard. Had to use other bits of rock as hammer and chisels. And my breathing held out pretty well. I can still do this! Life's Good.
  2. Matoaka Beach - 12-02-18

    Took a trip to Matoaka Beach for the first time today. Alot of bivalves, barnacles, couple pieces of coral, and one snail. Here's a pic! No sharks teeth but I will keep trying! IMG_1322.HEIC
  3. Lake Superior Fossil - Barnacle?

    Found this a bit over a month ago. Looks like a barnacle to me - but I readily admit "I know NOTHING!". Best Regards, Joe
  4. other randomn fossils i have

    just wondering what these are
  5. sorry again, i dont know what the species of these specimens are and also sorry for some reason parts of the photos were cropped and made smaller i think its because i put too much on there so they had to cut down the file size (:
  6. Can someone help me ID this barnacle?

    Good morning! I'm not finding a picture of this guy. Most my other barnacles are purple acorns. Haven't found another like this one. I'd like to know a little more about him. Is it a type of acorn barnacle? Thanks! (Sw Fl, on an oyster, pliocene) P.S. Just pulled it out of a bath, sorry it's still wet...
  7. Is this barnacle fossilized?

    I found this some years back at Pescadero Beach in California. I don't know if it's fossilized but if it is I think it would be from the Tertiary. Any help much appreciated.
  8. Agatized Barnacle

    From the album ocean stuff

    Here was a nice surprise. I picked up this fossil cluster of barnacles and noticed a nice layer of agate underneath! When I processed the photo I took of it I saw that the light from my flash dispersed giving this rainbow effect. It's very small but now when I hold to the light I can see the little rainbows!
  9. One more - Barnacle question

    This nice barnacle I believe is genus Blannus - Is that correct? DR
  10. Found in raw Micro-matrix from the piles at the Aurora Fossil Museum in 2014. I can't seem to find anything like it for comparison and identification. The grid is quarter inch squares... Help would be greatly appreciated! -Bill
  11. Yearly trip to Troyes - 2016

    Hello all, As each year i made my trip to Troyes and her albian layers in Champagne. On the first day, we decided to head to a first exposure on the bank o the lake. We didnt find much : a few small ammonites, gastropods, bivalves and corals ..... also a few crab fragments, but definitly not much to brag about.... Most of the spot was covered by a layer of dead waterweed, hiding everything. After a quick meal we decided to head to spot 2, another spot by the lake. At second spot, it was even worst : the whole exposure was buried under dry weed. Since there was not much reason to keep on we decided to call it for the day ....with a very very poor loot. On second day i headed alone to our third spot, harder to reach. After a quite long walk in the mud, i reached the exposure. That one was totally free from weed. The spot was very rich. 90 % of the stuff i collected were crustacean parts. Actually the only intersting stuff... but very interesting As a teaser, here come a group view of a part of the etyus martini carapaces i found. The most abundant crustacean of the day. Stopping it for today, to be followed a trip in the numerous species of crustaceans i was able to find.... See you soon

  15. Another Interesting Fossil!

    Hello fellow fossil-finders! I am back with a new fossil to be identified! Last Saturday I went to the Delaware Bay Beach with my cousins. We were looking for small fossils that were buried in this huge pile of rocks right at the edge of the water.The first fossil was found almost instantly. I believe it is honeycomb coral. Take a look. Next, I found something that I couldn't identify. It could be a barnacle for all I know. It has small grooves on the black side of the rock, seen here: Here is another view at the other side: Like always, if you can identify what this is, please tell me. Thanks! -Con
  16. Thought I'd share my favorite (at least for a barnacle) find. The locality, from which is this from, is very well known for being a place rockhounds have collected "agates" out of the nearby stream, but I was curious to their source, if nothing else to also find larger specimens than those washed and tumbled in the river. After hiking around the hills a few times over the course of several trips, I'd stumbled upon a small cliff with a ledge underneath and a very dramatic drop off. The face of the fallen cliff was where the "agates" were falling out of and the entire slope before the dangerous drop was littered with specimens from 1 cm in size to full barnacle clusters about 10-12" wide. Many pieces still had the porous barnacle shell attached and with chalcedony forming outside of the shells. From what I could tell, me and a few rabbits were the only ones who had visited the steep ledge. I picked up a few pieces from this formation layer deposit and followed it into a neighboring valley where I found this gem on an adjacent trip, I was showing some friends the site. The species of barnacle is described as : Balanus gregarius (Conrad,. 1856) Late Miocene Period Santa Margarita Formation, Private Ranch, Santa Margarita, California, USA Would this may be considered a cast, since none of the original shell is present and the crystals formed into the barnacles chambers? The most common color chalcedony present in these specimens is a toss up between a semi-translucent white or light grey-blue.
