  1. Hi everyone this is matthew again today in the creek I found this strange coral fossil it has several corals in it here is a photo
  2. Is this a fossil or what is it

    Sorry I don't know where this comes from exactly. It was found at an estate sale in Texas. Was told it was a part of a collectors pieces from Southwest U.S. and was presented as Native American. So far Native American people think it is a fossil so here I am asking your opinion. It's heavy, fits in the palm of your hand, has a noticeable single ridge on the humped side, has a hole in the top and a hole in the flatter side; is black in color with many grey channels or etchings on the humped side. In your opinion is this a fossil and if so any idea what it is of? If it helps, it feels kind of cool to touch. Thank you for your interest and time.
  3. I bought this at a local flea market. The man said after periodic dredging followed by storms fossils wash ashore which is where he got this. He thought it was a clam. It looks different to me almost like there is a mouth on the bottom but I have no idea. I was just curious if anyone had any thoughts on what it is, commonality, etc.? Thank you.
  4. Late Carboniferous Oyster or Clam II

    A second large Clam or Oyster? I dug a huge piece of limestone out of the hill and split it into three with a sledge hammer so that I could actually pick pieces up. After the heat this weekend, they were easy to pick apart once I got them home. Yesterday, I found the first piece. This is the one I found today. When it came out of the rock I was a bit shocked at how large it was. I carefully tapped around the specimen and was able to remove most of the surrounding rock carefully. This is the larger of the two pieces I found this weekend. I have less confidence in identifying it as has less features than the first piece. You can see shell material flaking off in the 3rd and 4th photos below. The fossil after I found it: Then, once I removed it from the rock:
  5. Late Carboniferous Oyster or Clam

    I love and hate finding large fossils. They are really interesting and striking to look at, but I have a hard time getting an ID on them. I dug a huge piece of limestone out of the hill and split it into three with a sledge hammer. After the heat this weekend, they were easy to pick apart. Yesterday, out popped this piece. There is another one I found today that I will be posting after this one. This piece has several wavy ridges. The shell material looks pearly, and perhaps some calcite replacement has happened. There was a piece of shell stuck on the mold portion as well. I'm seeing about 6 distinct ridges. Anyone know what it might be? Before I removed it from the rock: Several views after removing, trying to show the ridges:
  6. Hi everyone this is matt again today in the creek near me the first thing I found was a fossil coral called favosites niagarensis Hall which is found in New York related species widespread in north america and the other fossil has many brachiopods in it and they are called productella lachrymosa late devonian New York and Appalachians and here are the photos
  7. Not sure what it is really, the pictures don't do it justice but the edge thats exposed is actually smooth and shiny.
  8. I am nearly sure the top piece is Metacoceras. The middle is a clam, but what species? Perhaps Astartella concentrica? The bottom, what is that thing? 6477/6478 show it in detail. I find these a lot. Are they brachiopods? Not shown, but there is a horn coral on the back of the piece in a cross section.
  9. Found these at Point A Dam today!! Can anyone ID?
  10. Strange Steinkern

    This is a steinkern of a fossil clam that I had purchased, the shell itself fell apart almost immediately and this was left. I just want to confirm that the things on the surface of it are some kinds of trace burrows from worms, I am not really sure but that is what they look like to me. Thank you all.
  11. Pennsylvanian Clam?

    Found this one in the eroded limestone. It came out in two pieces. I believe it to be a clam. You can see it dimensionaly through the top. I'm still going to clean it up further.

  17. hi everyone this is matt again there was one more thing I wanted to show everyone from the hamburg fossil and gem show I got me 4 old antique spanish coins with a square in the middle here is a photo
  18. Jurassic / Cretaceous Oregon fossil?

    Hey, I posted my trip to California from Washington yesterday. I have now looked through my rocks and noticed that one of these rocks are different from the rest. I took a picture of the Buchia Bivalve in the first image, to show that it has a different shape and markings than the bivalves I found there. If anyone can give me a genus that would be great. Is this another shell or something more? Thanks guys
  19. Brachiopod

    Found these in Emmitsburg, but the lake was supposed to be fresh water?
  20. 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
  21. 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!
  22. 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.
