  1. Huge calymenid cephalon!

    I've been finding some very large calymenid cephala from my usual Liston Creek limestone spot. Today, i found the biggest one I've ever seen. Ive also noticed the rostrum is elongated in many of the ones ive found lately. They look quite a bit different from the calymenids I usually find at this spot. I need some help with the ID since I havent seen any like this before.
  2. Calymene trilobite

    I think this is, or WAS a Calymene trilobite. Damaged due to bad prep & poor workmanship. A few grooves on the back that shouldn't be there & I think some of it is missing, but it was cheap. No idea where it came from exactly. Cheap labor equals cheap fossils I guess.
  3. So I bought a Trilobite Fossil a few years ago in a museum. But it's gathering some rust. Is this bad? If so what should I do about it?
  4. ADAM's SILURIAN

    Hoooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here we are at last, into Adam's Silurian. Thanks for looking. First up is the Lower Silurian or Llandovery and I begin with a problem. I posted this one incorrectly in Adam's Ordovician as it had got it's label muddled up with an Ordovician Favosites I had that has vanished in the move here, but is being replaced by kind forum member @Herb Anyway, this, I remember now I've found the correct label, is from the greenish Browgill Formation, part of the Stockdale Group from a cutting near Skelgill (Skelghyll) in Cumbria, Northern England. It seems to be a tabulate coral, but I can't find any listed for this location, only mentions of small, rare, rugose corals. It has the star shaped corallites of a Heliolitidid, but seems to be tightly packed together like a Favositidid. A couple of species of Palaeofavosites seem to be close and are a bit star-shaped,, but anyone know any better? @TqB@piranha hmm who else? The coral bit, an external mold, is a maximum of 3.5 cm across and each corallite up to 2 mm.
  5. It was 50 degrees on Sunday so I decided to get out to the Silurian Sugar Run formation to look for some trilobites. I checked out some out small outcrops that I've never investigated before, but no luck. It was starting to get late so went to an old spot that I haven't been to in a long time. The rocks in this formation are very difficult to break open and generally need a sledge hammer, so the best method is to look for "promising-looking" rocks and bring them home to break open. This is what I found: Tiny Calymene Gravicalymene celebra Cybantyx cuniculus double cephalons Group shot Most are pretty beat up but a very enjoyable daytrip. Thanks for looking.
  6. These trilobite are real? Has repair or restoration?
  7. New York Trilobites

    I was just curious as to if anyone knows how to get in touch with someone about possibly being able to dig at Walcott as a guest, as it’s a private quarry, or if someone else knows where to find the gold bugs with appendages. I am hoping someone can point me to where there is isotelus or Ceraurus as it’s my favorite Trilos. Any help is appreciated. Even if you know a guy that knows a guy that knows a worker there lol. Thank you, and Happy Thanksgiving!
  8. Moroccan Calymene/Flexicalymene doubt

    Are Calymene (those putative specimens from the pictures, existing by thousands at quarry's), a described genera to Morocco or in fact what we got are Flexicalymene. And what species are they? Thanks in advance for your help. Miguel
  9. More of a reccy really

    As the title says, more of a reccy for later in the year when I hope to meet Nick @Barerootbonsai again for a hunt. I went away to shoot several images for a cd cover/book for a quirky band http://ironbootscrapers.com/ using one of the Victorian methods of photography I practice. On the journey back back I decided to spend an hour at Wren's Nest in Dudley, West Midlands, UK https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wren's_Nest Wren's Nest is a productive Silurian site, particularly for corals such as favosites and rugosa. Here's a fine looking chap at the site
  10. Hello forum! So about a week ago, a couple friends and I went out to the Mazonia-Braidwood Fish and Wildlife Area in Illinois to do some amateur fossil hunting (first time for all of us). I was so excited when, at our first site, I found a pair of trilobites on the same rock and a few feet away there was the top half of the rock with their impressions. First of all, I love trilobites. I'm currently reading the book by Richard Fortey, Trilobite: Eyewitness to Evolution, and I hope to be able to study them somewhere along in my educational career. So far, I've identified these little guys as Calymene celebra, but I'm not 100% sure on the species since this is my first time ever finding a fossil let alone having to identify it. But that's not my main focus as of right now. What I'm asking for is some tips on how to clean the rock containing the trilobites (it's really dark and still covered in some moss and lichen). I've rinsed it in warm water the night I brought it home, but that's all. I didn't want to risk doing any damage since it's my first fossil find and I'm overly attached already haha. I'm also wondering about preparing it: what tools would you use, etc. I've never done anything like this before so any and all advice will be greatly appreciated! Here are the photos so far! Cheers! --Jessica
  11. Slab O Calymene

    Last summer my father spotted a slab of Calymene celebra from Grafton, IL Milwaukee, WI in a small shop in a small town in Northern Minnesota. A while later I went to the shop and took a look at it. After a bit of discussion we purchased the slab with the intention to prep it a little better. In the store, the slab had 11 trilobites exposed. There looked to be quite a bit of matrix that could be chiseled down and there was a possibility of exposing more trilobites. My father started chiseling away excess matrix in search for more bugs, and more bugs were found. The total as of right now is 17 complete Calymene celebra. The Niagara Dolomite is extremely hard and a hammer and chisel proved to be a daunting task, so we enlisted the help of an air chisel. Once a trilobite is exposed/discovered, we then use and air scribe to get close to the trilobite. Now comes the question of how we should finish the slab once we are done looking for more bugs? Should we leave it the natural grey color of the matrix? Or, should we grind the matrix so it looks whiter and creates more contrast between the matrix and the bugs? I really wish I would have taken a before photo...
