  1. Hello, I am an amateur fossil hunter whos level of knowledge is pretty limited. I love going out and hunting but my ability to identify and prep what I find is quite limited. I found this cephalopod fossil near Cincinnati Ohio a couple of years ago and it is by far my best find ever. I'm typically fine picking at or grinding away with a Dremel trying to prep my finds as they are usually small bits. Nothing I'm worried about ruining. This is something different and I'm pretty apprehensive about working on it. I read there isn't much harm in gluing it back together and I attempter this. It looks ok but 2 pieces didn't take so it's still in 2 pieces. There are also many very thin pieces of shell that came off the back when I dug it out. There also appears to be a small trilobite in the underside of the rock. What I would like to know is more information on the species it is, as well as if there is a person or place I can send it to get prepped. For identification purposes here is what I know. The area it was found in Cincinnati Ohio in a bed known for Cambrian era fossils. Estimated age is 450-500 million years. I am not a rich man so I cannot afford to spend too much on prep but it is the best fossil I've found so far. I would be willing to spend as much as my budget allows on getting it cleaned up and put back together. I do not know what to expect price wise so if anyone has a guestimate please let me know. Thanks ahead of time to anyone that can help me out.
  2. Cephalopod fossil?

    Relevant info first: This was found in Petoskey Michigan while looking for Petoskey stones. It was found in partially buried in sand. It is quite large and rather heavy. As pictured in picture 5, there is some sort of opening at the end? I can't get a very good picture of the inside, it's hard to get light where i need it and take a picture. the hole looks to maybe be about a 1/2 mm deep, and less than that wide. I took to reddit, albeit with less detailed photos and was told it was a straight shelled nautiloid cephalopod from the paleozoic, and that it was a brevicone, which I'm hoping someone can confirm or deny, or point me towards relevant info. I was trying to find more and found this on your forum, which is the first thing I've found online that actually looks something close to what I have: Anyways, Thanks for looking, and any help you can offer.

  19. I was trying to find the longest straight shelled cephalopod length but was unsuccessful, I heard anywhere from 7-14 feet. What's the real answer? Thanks.
  20. Pennsylvanian Fossil ID

    Hi everybody, I was wondering if you could help me with this. I found this rock among the Ames Limestone around Pittsburgh. The limestone's chock full of crinoids and corals, but I wasn't sure what this fragment was. It looks like it might be from a cephalopod (belemnites or bactrites maybe?), but I'm really not positive. Could you guys help me out here? Thanks!
  21. Unusual hollow cylinder

    This was found in southern Colorado. I’m not sure what it is.
  22. I collected this little worn cephalopod in a stream in Peoria County Illinois. The area is primarily Patoka-Shelburn Formation Undivided (Pennsylvanian) but it wasn't found in-situ. I sectioned a piece for identification and the siphuncle seems large for the Pennsylvanian cephalopods known from the area. To my eyes it looks a lot like Actinoceras (which I guess would mean Ordovician) based on the position and size of the siphuncle. Does anyone have any other ideas?

    From the album Delaware Fossils

    Eutrephoceras sp. Cretaceous C and D Canal Delaware City, Delaware Mt Laurel Fm.
  25. Hey guys, the first one actually doesn't looks like a cephalopod, maybe part of a trilobite (from the Baltic coast)? 2. This flint remembers me of something from the bottom of the sea. Any Idea? Thanks in advance!
