  4. Fossil in Alps riverbed

    hi everyone, I found this fossil embedded on honeydew sized rock on a riverbed the the western alpine region of Austria, (Hinterhornbach). I am sorry for not having included a ruler as i was on a hike and did not want to take the rather large stone away from the area at the moment. I am curious to know if this is in fact a fossil of some sort, as I am by no means an expert when it comes to fossils. At the imprints widest point i would say is 10cm. The detailed texture which is printed resembles leather or elephant skin, as there are small wrinkles that run across the shape while the complete shape looks like that of a giant clam.Please let me know if you have more questions of if I left out some info! I am completely new to this forum, here with an abundance of curiosity. Thanks! *edit: it helps to look at the photo upsidedown, sorry for the orientation, I took the image with my phone and have limited equipment while staying in a remote location!

  22. Totally encrusted large bivalve?

    Good morning all! Hope everyone is healthy and starting to get back to normal, whatever that will be! Found this yesterday below a roadcut in Kansas City laying by itself. The shape instantly caught my attention, and when I looked at it, I believe it is a totally encrusted large bivalve/clam! Very similar to the large native freshwater clams we have around here. The encrusted material is limestone- there are crinoid parts/what appears to be sea urchin spines and "hash". You can see faintly concentric lines. So my questions are-Since it has the shape and appearance of a bivalve, but is totally covered by "matrix" is it a concretion, or simply an encrusted shell? Second-it's very cool in itself, but do I try to clean it up to see what species and have a cooler shell? Could it even be cleaned well enough? Just alternating baths/soaks in vinegar?I have also included a pic of the encrusted matrix. Thoughts all? Thanks! Bone
  23. Hi everyone this is matt again today in the creek I found this very cool clam fossil in my book it calls it Grammysioidea arcuata the description says about it Transversely elliptical to subovate shell, with prominently incurved beaks ; anterior and posterior ends rounded. Surface with strong , uniform concentric ridges with fine concentric striae.
  24. Origin unknown; found in box of junk at yard sale. Guessing it is some type of clam from regular ridges on outer part of piece; inside piece has blackish "softer smoother" piece than outer hard piece. Has striations like gills or hair? Is soft tissue normally found in fossils? Kind of thought they would be the first thing to dissolve when something dies; if so what is it?
  25. First try, not awful

    Hey Preppers, I was looking into beginners prep yesterday and found a good equipment survey on the nautiloid network, here's the link in case you might be interested. I tracked down a pin vise in the house and started picking away at this miocene clam I collected over the winter at the Topanga formation in Topanga canyon, CA. Picked off the sandstone and I think it looks a bit better this way Thanks for looking. Before: After:
