  1. My girlfriend, Valerie and I were visiting my aunt in West Palm Beach, Florida. She is 90 and lives in a senior residence. I wasn't planning to go fossil hunting or even thinking about fossils. However, on our last night there, we were walking in the neighborhood to burn off a few calories when I spotted a number of fossil shells in front of an apartment complex. We spent about half an hour searching the shells for complete ones in good condition- found over twenty species. Valerie got into it too and found some excellent specimens. After that we began spotting fossil shells everywhere. It's a

    Pyrite Disease

    My fossilized bivalves seem to be turning gold in some areas, and some parts have chipped off . Is this "pyrite disease"? Is it due to being on wooden shelving? I wouldn't say my climate is particularly humid. My great uncle gave these five to me when I was seven, so they are special and I would like to save them None of my other fossils or minerals are exhibiting these signs?

    Literature on fossils

    Fossil forum, Good morning. I have been looking for literature on the following for a while now, and have not been successful. I was wondering if anyone already had information on the following, or can direct me to a place where I can look for it myself. Brachiopods, specifically Lingulids (classification and identification) Salopina genus ( classification and identification), this genus was moved from Orthis, for further clarification Rhychonellida (classification and identification, at least to the genus level). Camarotoechia genus (classificat

    From the album: Bivalves of Platteville/Decorah Formation Minnesota

    Overexposure light when taking picture so blue appear to be the best for me so far. Rare Decorah Formation Ordovician Twin Cities Minnesota. Deceptrix planodorsata is what I figures this bivalve is. Kind of reminds me of certain modern nut clam species.

    100_8969

    From the album: Bivalves of Platteville/Decorah Formation Minnesota

    Guessing Modiolopsis arguta. It is the bigger of similar shaped bivalves that I have found. Uncommon to rare Decorah formation so far. The top right is the hinge. Ordovician, Twin Cities Minnesota.
  8. Icy? Well, compared to some areas in the US or Moscow, it had only a few degrees below zero (Celsius) last Sunday. The nights had about -10°C, the days about -2°C. This period lastet from last Friday to Monday. No snow at all and very, very dry air. The last two days we had about 0°C during the night and +10°C maximum during the day. Still very dry. So without any snow and clear, but "cold" weather, I checked out a few Miocene sites around St. Josef in western Styria, Austria. I have made a detailed report about the area more then a year ago here: Rocks and fossils wer
  9. Dear collectors! I'm curious If someone interesting for my collection of Mollusc, mainly gastropods and bivalves from tertiary of Europe. I have more than 1000 specimens! I'm open-minded and accept all offers! I am interested in quality fossils and NOT quantity!
  10. Taking advantage of my time spent home, I finally got a couple of glass display cases to showcase fossil specimens from my collection. Finding ones that were affordable and blended with the style of our home, was challenge, and I took my time choosing. Despite a bit of criticism I receive from some of my fossil collecting friends, I am a generalist collector who doesn't specialize in anything. Having said that, my collection does feature some rare faunas; Devonian and Cretaceous bivalves, Lower and Middle Devonian brachiopods and gastropods, Cretaceous vertebrates, etc. The focus is largely on

    Back to the Ohio Valley

    Hi Everyone, I took a 2 week trip to the Ohio Valley, arriving back in New York about a week ago. It was primarily a family visit since many of my relatives now reside in the Elizabethtown, KY area. However, the Ohio Valley, as some of you know, is very rich in Paleozoic fossils and I just had to make a few stops on my way there and back as well as between family engagements. I will try to share enough to give you all a gist of it: It was a long day's drive from the northern suburbs of New York City to Richmond, Indiana where I spent the first night. The next day I was headed down State R

    Can these 3 be ID’d?

    Tiny items, 1/2 - 1/4 inches, picked up in Big Brook that caught my attention and warranted being brought home. Teeth? Bivalves? Concretions? As always thank you for sharing your expertise

  14. There are blocks of marl in the river and you have to go up and break them to find the fossils There are a lot of shells
  15. More fun fossils from rocks brought into Oakville.
  16. Hi All. I was unsure where to put this message so hopefully this place is okay. I teach 7th grade Life Science and we are soon starting our coverage of major animal types (arthropods, echinoderms, molluscs, chordtates, etc). I am hoping to put together a teaching collection that can be used each year as we do this. If there are members here who are willing to donate any/all types of durable specimens (harder for young teens to destroy) that could be used to teach students the key features of these phyla. If you are willing and able to share can you please PM me directly. I do appreciate
  17. Hello all! I haven't done a trip report for a long time so I figured this would be a good time! I went to one for my favorite New Jersey Cretaceous streams on Friday and put in a few miles of walking. It was raining slightly but with hot it's been lately, that was actually appreciated! At the end of a mostly unproductive trip, I decided I was done and would turn around About a minute later, I saw something in the water and picked it up - it ended up being a nearly two-inch long, rooted Plesiosaur tooth!! I couldn't believe it; I've never found a Plesi tooth here this b

    Interesting assortment of fossils

    Last year while fossil hunting in a creek in Chenango Forks, New York I came across an interesting looking rock. The rock was primarily made up of gastropods with a few bivalves and brachiopods. It was a very crumbly, silty rock. I believe it is upper Devonian because I’ve only ever found upper Devonian rocks at that creek but I’ve been unable to find anything close to what I found in Karl A. Wilson’s Field Guide to the Devonian Fossils of New York

    More Big Brook what?

    Found at big brook they appear to be the same but same what? Thanks again

    Finally some success!

    Well my daughter and I have been hard at work hunting we got into it after her birthday and had a tiny bit of success at the beach but found a much better area to dig in the nanaimo group strata. I got "west coast fossils" the book so we could figure out what we were finding and finally these last few outings we are finding some great stuff! My only sadness is I found this huge bivalve but I dont think there is anyway to get it out without damaging it! Lifted a large 5" 2x3' slab off the top of this larger rock and we found this which was pretty awesome first large fossil we have found
  21. It was an all day outing on a perfect spring day in Central Upstate New York. Al Tahan and I visited a small private quarry where the Middle Devonian Oatkacreek Formation Mottville Member, part of the Marcellus Shale and the lower Hamilton Group is exposed. It's been about a year since I visited the site which I've been coming to for the past five years and it was Al's first visit. Erosion had broken down almost all of the pieces of shale which covered much of the site on previous visits. However a lot of fossils here, preserved in calcite are weathered free from the matrix and surface collec

    Fossil Models

    Hello to everyone. I am studying Geology in the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and I am facing difficulties in passing the subject of Invertebrate Paleontology. This subject requires Identification of fossils both in power point but also live. Because of this I am interested in buying models (paper models, plastic models , whatever) of fossils. I have been told by my professor that some of the samples exhibited during classes were sold to the University a very long time ago by a well known shop which I will not name that sells such products. Sadly though I have not been able to find wha
