  1. Mystery fossil / interesting rock?

    Found this rock in Charmouth beach (south west coast of England) a few months ago. The period is early Jurassic and is generally dated to ~ 190m years ago. I have soaked the rock rock in vinegar solution and gently scrubbed it with a soft toothbrush. I can see the small crustacean imprint in the middle, but I am curious RE the pattern on the top portion and grey rock in the middle. There is nothing on the reverse/I haven't been able to expose anything. Please let me know if you see anything interesting or if it’s just a rock! Thanks, J
  2. Hi everyone! Last week I went camping for 3 days with my cousin and her parents in Lyme Regis (first time on the jurassic coast) and managed to persuade them to join me in a little fossil hunting! On the first day we went to Lyme Regis beach and to cut a long story short, we had no luck. all I found was half of a compressed ammonite in the shale which I then realised I lost when we got back to the campsite! I wasn't bothered though as the shale is so crumbly that it would not have lasted very long anyway. We did however have a really nice time on the beach and saw lots of huge ammonites in the rocks and the ammonite graveyard which was amazing. The next day was allocated to the museum and looking around the fossil shops. Of course I would have loved to have spent the day searching for fossils, but I only tagged along to this holiday! On the last day we went to Charmouth beach in the hope of better luck. My hope was diminished when we saw the hundreds of people all traipsing the beach looking for fossils. A lot of them had hammers and seemed to be hammering indiscriminately at rocks however, and most of those looking on the beach were just walking and staring at their feet. It became obvious quite quickly that this was not an effective method at this site and so I spent that day on my hands and knees. Belemnites were abundant (I really should have stopped picking them up but I couldn't resist) as were tiny ammonite fragments. I only found 3 nicely exposed whole ammonites though and one encased in rock (I might buy some tools to prep it myself - just got my university scholarship money, why spend it on fees!) And then came the excitement: all the previous week I had been preoccupied about this trip to the Jurassic coast and the odd chance of finding an ichthyosaur vertebra, without ever thinking I would. But, a few hours into the trip, what should I see laying on the ground by my feet? An ichthyosaur vertebra!! I just grabbed it and had to sprint back to my cousin down the beach to show her! It more than made up for not finding a larger or more complete ammonite. All in all we had a great time, I can't wait to go back! Some of my nicer finds Some bivalves My only nice whole ammonites Ammonite fragment filled with crystal, there's a lovely ring of golden pyrite showing around the crystal too Crinoid stems The ichthyosaur vertebra!
  3. Hi Everyone, I found this strange shaped object at Seatown, Dorset and was wondering if anyone thought it could be something of interest. It stood out from everything around it. It was in a number of sections. On some sections there is some sort of crust, there are what look like shells on another area and in when looking at a cross section of the broken parts there is a defined orange centre. Should I see if the grey material comes off easily? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks G.
  4. Metal on Charmouth Beach?

    I apologise if this is a simple find but I asked at the Charmouth Coastal centre and they were not sure of this find. I found it on a fossil hunting walk but I'm not sure what it is. it looks like molten metal. It is very light in weight and has some golden colour to it. It is mainly light grey in colour and dull in appearance. It was found on Charmouth Beach near to the cliffs, towards Lyme Regis. Is it a fossil?Thank you.
  5. I was knocked out (figuratively) by this little nodule as soon as its finder and preparator posted it. It now sits prominently in my belemnite display cupboard. Belemnites are my main interest which is the official reason I wanted it, but for some specimens it's just love at first sight. It's a Nannobelus acutus (I think - it's not always straightforwards...). They're scarce in this subzone locally, and only very rarely crop up in classic Sinemurian ammonite nodules from Dorset. In fact, I know of only one other but I'm sure there are more out there. (At other levels, and elsewhere, it's a common belemnite.) The ammonites are mostly Cymbites sp. (little, sub-spherical things), with one Asteroceras cf. margaritoides visible (there's another hiding under the belemnite). I think it took vision to decide to prep this - cracked open, you'd just see common little ammonites and a broken belemnite which a lot of people might not bother with, but it's turned into one of the most aesthetic specimens in my collection. Lower Jurassic, Black Ven Mudstone Member. Obtusum Zone, Stellare Subzone, Charmouth, Dorset, UK Nannobelus: 4.5cm Asteroceras: 1.8cm Cymbites: 1cm down to 2mm - I love the hollowed apertures!
  6. Ichthyosaur Paddle

    Hello, this is my first post Just wanted to share my most recent find from the Jurassic coast of Charmouth, Dorset UK. I found this pebble with what appeared to be bone, had it prepped and it has turned into an ichthyosaur paddle with ribs/gastralia and a couple ammonites! Best regards, Kam
  7. Does anyone have any tips on finding scleidosaurus fossils at charmouth? Is there a special way of defining them from the other rocks? Also do they show up under a uv torch like the ammonites from there do?
  8. ID please?

    Could someone please ID this fossil from Charmouth, England? It looks like some sort of crustacean. Two of these were found in the same rock. The other one is being acid prepped.
  9. Complete Novices need help!

    Hi, my children and I have never cleaned up a fossil before, but we go to places like kimmeridge, charmouth, Lyme Regis etc a lot as we live not far away, normally we just see the fossils at the beaches and leave them to the experts. Yesterday though on a trip to Charmouth, my son found a large piece he wanted to bring home and clean up (he’s recently been given a rock tumbler and is now fascinated with rocks/fossils etc). We don’t have any tools at the moment but I’m happy to get some simple bits. The warden at Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre suggested he start with sandpaper. Any advice on how we start would be greatly appreciated, thanks. Aimee x
  10. I found this unusually shaped lump of pyrite in Charmouth UK (Jurassic) and am wondering what it will look like inside. Here is the lump in question: I recently split the below lump, found in Folkestone UK (Albian), And this is what it looked like inside: Will I get a similar result with the new lump as with the old one or would twatting it with a hammer be a waste of my time?
