  2. is this a clam cast???

    While I was out cracking that last rock I found this in the drive is this a clam cast??? found in my drive from a gravel load west oh Houston Texas from Brazos river
  3. Hi all, I recently made a trip out to Wilson Clay Pit in Brownwood, Texas with my local paleo society. I've found several recognizable things, and a few I need some help identifying. I apologize in advance to @erose who gave me an idea on one bivalve that I failed to write down, and thereafter promptly forgot! I think the tooth is Petalodus sp., just need confirmation. I'd love a genus for the clams, and I have no idea at all what the small plate-shaped fossil is. Thanks!
  4. I need an ID for this clam. I found this clam in a concretion. it was taken from the Kevin member of the Marias formation. Th Kevin member is listed as Santonian Cretaceous. The location is 5 miles west of Loma Montana.
  5. Matoaka Beach - 12-02-18

    Took a trip to Matoaka Beach for the first time today. Alot of bivalves, barnacles, couple pieces of coral, and one snail. Here's a pic! No sharks teeth but I will keep trying! IMG_1322.HEIC

  7. Pandora crassidens

    Complete double valves are rare at this site. Pieces of this shell are not uncommon. Found at the base of Zone 2, Rushmere Member of the Yorktown Formation on the Tar River. The two photos of the hinge detail were included to show that detail. They are not from the same specimen. PLIOCENE MOLLUSCS FROM THE YORKTOWN AND CHOWAN RIVER FORMATIONS IN VIRGINIA Lyle D.

  13. Little clam?

    Went out to a spot on the Nansemond River in Suffolk, VA, and it started to rain right after. We arrived, so we had to leave. Some iron concretions and this little thing were all I found. It looks like a clam, but it feels rougher than the other clams I’ve found so far. It was inside of a larger rock. I believe the area is mid-late Pleistocene. It’s about 2 cm wide.
  14. Mollusk Molds

    From the album Calvert Cliffs

    Molds from the Choptank Formation. Member unknown. Virginia Miocene
  15. Crystal/Fossil ID

    A friend of mine found this recently in the area of Belton, Texas in the undivided early Cretaceous. He sent me the pic and asked if I knew what kind of crystal it was. I didn’t know so I asked him if I could post it here for him. I’m not so curious about the fossil clam as the type of crystal it is. If you need more pics it may take a while, because I think he is out of town for a while. @ynot It does not look like calcite really, but I suppose it could be. It just looks harder than that. I forgot to ask him to do a hardness scratch test. Let me know if you have any ideas. Kim
  16. Giant clam fossil?

    This fossil was found at Luoping, Guizhou. Is it a giant clam fossil?
  17. saltwater clam

    I think this is plagiostoma a marine bivalve from the mid-cretaceous but I'm not 100 percent sure. it has a width of 4.5 inches and has multiple hidden arch lines that have been removed from abuse taken from the natural environment.
  18. Maybe clam steinkern

    Is this possibly a small clam steinkern or just an ordinary concretion? Or maybe a tiny, ancient UFO? 4.5 cm wide x 3.5 cm deep x 2 cm thick. Some of the openings go in a ways, pic 2, left side goes in about a 1/4 inch, same with left opening in pic 3. Pic 2 just looks like some 1950's movie UFO.
  19. Newbie with another fossil I hope

    Found this while hunt native American artifacts. It looks like a shell of some kind. Half I'm sure is chart. Please identify. Thanks railguy
  20. Hi, This is an interesting beach find. It's about 1 1/2" x 1 1/2", Found on Honeymoon Beach, Florida USA. It appears to me a baby Clam Bivalve embedded in a Snail Gastropod Limestone Cast. The clam is about a half of inch at it's widest point and is crystallized. I'm not sure if it is a fossilized shell I'm looking at or a cast of the shell? I've found many snail casts, but not one with another shell in it. Anybody ever see one like this? Thanks for looking!
  21. Clam that is heavy

    I recently received a fossilized clam that is shut tight. The clam seems heavier than I think it should be. Does it hurt the 'value' of the fossil if I ply it open? I saw online how some clams are crystallized.
  22. Notocorbula ephamilla Tate, 1885

    Common shell collected from Fossil Beach, Mornington, Victoria. Also known as Corbula ephamilla.
