  1. Staten Island, NYC Beach Find

    Found this on a beach in Staten Island, NYC. The beach fronts on the Raritan Bay and Atlantic Ocean. I am a complete and utter noob when it comes to fossils. I'm pretty sure it IS a fossil at least, I showed pictures to my archaeologist friend (he specializes in Viking Age artifacts and sites) and he said it's definitely a fossil...so there's that . Anyone have any idea what it is (or was)? I thought maybe a shell? I Googled pictures of fossilized shells and didn't see any that look quite like it. I hope that the pictures are sufficient, I tried to capture how the fossilization goes up on the sides of the rock and it's not just a flat imprint. Please excuse the glittery nail polish. Thank you for your time!
  2. Is it a shark tooth?

    I apologize in advance for posting before in the wrong area (I think). I’m a newbie to this forum but am already so excited about it! My family and I are avid sharks tooth and beach fossil collectors in Emerald Isle, NC. I found this in the late summer (pre-Florence) on the beach in the backwash. It has a shape very similar to other teeth I’ve found but the color and texture is so different! I welcome your opinions; hopefully it will help to settle our family’s disagreement on this one! Thank you, in advance, for your time and I look forward to participating in this forum!
  3. Is it a shark tooth?

    I found this late this summer in Emerald Isle, NC (prior to Florence). My family lives there and we are all avid sharks tooth and beach fossil collectors. We are divided as to whether this is a sharks tooth and I would love to hear some opinions! Thank you! Hopefully the experts here can help settle this discussion once and for all!
  4. Fossil ID Help

    Texas fossil (?) of Unknown Origin. Found on beach south of Galveston Texas
  5. Haida Gwaii fossil clam

    I found this piece of clam in some pretty hard matrix along the beach below the tourist information building last year around this time while visiting Haida Gwaii. I've only just worked away most of the matrix. The inside was softer sand/clay which ground out quickly with my Dremel but had to use the diamond cutter to work off a lot of the matrix covering the outside. You can see in the photos that only a few of the 'fingers' survived fossilization. As this was on the beach I am not sure how old it could be, maybe Jurassic or as old as Triassic? Need help.
  6. Any ideas? I’m stumped. Found on beach in Michigan.
  7. Dino joint or cool beach rock?

    Hi All, glad to be a new member here - I've been an avid collector of unique looking rocks and objects found on the beaches of Cape Cod and elsewhere in New England. Here's the first that I'm hoping someone out there can identify. It could just be a cool beach rock - but it always struck me as some kind of bone...(ruler is in Centimeters). Thanks for looking! -Brad
  8. Shark Vertebrae washed on shore(?)

    Hi! Yeah I joined just to get something identified. It's what I think is a Shark Vertebrae, about an inch in diameter and a cm tall. Anybody with any idea what shark it is? Two holes on bottom, two on top. And dimples on the sides.
  9. Help id teeth

    Hi! Can someone please help me to identify these items? I found them at a beach in Portugal, close to the city of Setubal. I often find bones there too but I don’t dare to bring them home...
  10. Living sands

    langerjeukarcyclebeachfaciesCarbonate Production ms 2008.pdf J.Eukar.Microbiol.v55/3-2008 M.Langer: Asessing the Contribution of foraminiferan protists to global ocean carbonate production "With an estimated production of at least 130 million tons of CaCO3 per year, they contribute almost 5% of the annual present-day carbonate production in the world’s reef and shelf areas (0–200 m) and approximately 2.5% of the CaCO3 of all oceans."

  11. Help with more Myrtle Beach Finds

    After going through the last of our fossil finds from our vacation at Myrtle Beach, SC these are the ones we would like help identifying. Thank you!
  12. Any ideas on what this is

    Any idea what this is? It looks like a tooth to me but not a sharks. Found on Masonboro island NC. (small island off Wilmington - no one lives there)
  13. We are on our way home from Myrtle Beach, SC. We did some fossil hunting on the beach along the grand strand on the Atlantic Ocean and came across this item. Any help with indentifying it is appreciated. Thanks.
  14. I alreay posted my little hunt in Antwerp here. Beside that I also hunted on a few beaches near Cadzand. Its quite a popular location and there are many people, who are looking for shark teeth. But the quality of the shark teeth isnt that good compared to land sites. Here are some pictures of the beaches: I was mainly in Cadzand directly, in the area of Nieuwvliet but also on a beach near Vlissingen. Here is a picture of the beach near Vlissingen (De Kaloot): Some "in situ" pictures: + Doesnt look too bad Here is my haul: This was the biggest one with a length of 4 cm from Cadzand: I was very happy about this one: A 2.5 cm long Notorynchus primigenius I found it at the "Zwarte Polder" (near Cadzand) One of the best non-tooth-find was this ear bone of a dolphin: (about 3 cm long) My find werent that good but the season wasnt ideal. (too hot, too many people, not much wind ...) Nevertheless I am satisfied with my finds and hopefully next year I can find even more things Thanks for watching!
  15. unknown to me

    beach rock from an Ordovician area of Green Bay, WI near Michigan border plenty of bryozoa in other rocks
  16. Old Fossil Hull

    This is a unique looking items from my fathe r's collection of (maybe) fossils found in the Eastern part of Massachussetts near coastlines. I was wondering if this is special or even a fossil at all. Thanks.
  17. Need more help with ID

    Just as everything else I find, I found this bone walking the beach near South Ponte Vedra. It looks like a meniscus, or something like that.
  18. Need help to ID

    I found this walking the beach near South Ponte Vedra. The texture, the little black cylinders, made me pick it up. What is it? Thank you!
  19. The included photograph shows a fossil that we can’t quite place. Would any of you be able to positively identify the fossil we found at Portmarnock Beach, Ireland. We think it may be Estonioceras but are not sure. It is approximately 7cm in diameter. Can anybody shed some light on this. Thanks.
  20. So I've always been interested in fossils and history of any sort. A few weeks ago I was doing some exploring in the Flinders Ranges and found this bit of ancient sea bed. So I decided to explore a little closer to home, at Turimetta Beach and found these (and lots more) I couldn't go right at low tide so was limited to the part of the headland I could get to, now I have a taste for it I'd like to go do some more searching, are there any other spots close to Sydney (I'm on the upper North shore)? Cheers Steve
  21. Fossil?

    So I’m so eager to find some kind of fossil that at this moment everything looks like a fossil to me. But today on the beach i found this weird formed object about 50 cm deep. Anyone has any idea if this is a stone or a fossil? It is also very light, not stone like at all... found this on Zakynthos, Greece on a beach close to Banana Beach about 30 mins away from the capital.
  22. Fossil or not?

    Hey guys! I hardly know a thing about fossils and it would be great if someone could help me out. My family and I visited Chippoke State Park and found what appears to be either a fossil or just a shell trapped in sand. It’s about 3 and a half inches wide and long. Anything helps. Thanks!
  23. What is this?

    I found this walking on an ocean beach in Northern Washington State near the Strait and not sure what it is. It is about 3 in long and 2 in diameter. It is hollow inside. Thanks in advance for any help.
  24. Found this rock. Looks similar to when fossil bones are polished. I doubt it is a bone but is there a good way of telling the difference?
  25. Fossil or strange rocks?

    I was walking on the beach in Cape Charles, VA and both of these ‘rocks’ turned up in the surf together. I feel like they may be fossils but I am not sure so I am turning to you experts ;-) If they are not fossils then are they bone or just very strange rocks?!? Thank you!!
