  1. what kind of oir is this this in this rock ?

    Hi everyone this is matt again can anyone tell me what kind of metal is in this rock sense I can't figure it out ? here are some photos
  2. The big horn coral embedded in the rock is about 1.5 inches long, for scale. I really like the colors! Anyone have any idea what species it could be? Whenever I find em' I just call em' "horn corals", but if you ask me, they look more like barnacles or something (even if they're unrelated -__-) Good hunting!
  3. My Aurora Pile

    Hey everyone! About 2 weeks ago, the VERY generous @AshHendrick gave a portion of his Aurora pile, straight from the mine! I put it around a wood frame in my yard, and have hunted it for hours almost every day. This will be an ongoing thread, I will prob not update every day, but at least weekly. This is the pile. It's bigger than it looks in this pic (about 5.5 x 5.5 feet [a little less than 2 meters i think]) What I do is I sift into the bucket, so I don't go through it twice. I dump it somewhere else. Day 1 Coral Fish vert I think this is coprolite, but I'm not sure Turtle shell Cool rock with turritella another turritella Big steinkern Sorry about the blurry pic, the only one I took of the ray teeth The shark teeth Find of the day shark tooth in matrix the shells. Appreciate ID's That's day 1. more coming
  4. Trying to determine age

    Trying to determine age and any info. Found in Cheboygan Michigan.
  5. I found this in the NSR yesterday, and it is very similar to a Tabulate coral I found in the NSR a while back. Here’s the discussion on the forum about that specimen: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/78070-mosaic-of-crystal-north-sulphur-river/ This one is worn a bit more, so I’m confused as to whether it is also a Tabulate coral or Rudist, but they have very similar characteristics. The sections don’t seem to be as square as Rudist. Any help is appreciated!
  6. So I had bought from a certain online auction site some Lee Creek mine microfossil matrix a while back... I finally got around to looking over a little bit of it this evening. Attached are what I have found so far without any magnification.
  7. Some type of coral?

    I found this specimen at Oaks Quarry Park in Fairborn Ohio. All of the rocks there were Silurian. In the 3rd picture at the top there are dolomite (or calcite) crystals. Any help would be much appreciated.
  8. What is this one? Any ideas? Im trying to create a hands on fossil unit for classroom use and I can't ID this one. I pick up fossils all over N. Michigan. Thanks!
  9. Whats that ?

    Some kind of Coral ?
  11. Coral or Bone?

    Bone or Corral? my phone is 4 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 I hope these pics turn out taken with a different phone and in natural light. west of houston tx is the location in Brookshire in gravel.
  12. Arizona Pennsylvanian Coral

    The corals from the Pennsylvanian Naco Formation in Arizona have not been officially described partly because many are silicified and have lost internal details. Any idea what these corals are with central columns that are vertically striated? Their average length is 2 to 3 cm. I think that they look like Lophophyllidium. Thanks, John
  13. Sponge or Coral?

    Hi, I found this rock in my yard today and would like to know if it could be a fossilized sponge or fossilized coral? My yard is in the Mississippian with St. Louis Limestone & Warsaw Limestone. Thanks. ~ Tracey
  14. Fossil ID, Kristianstad, Sweden

    Hi, I posted a fossil ID question last week, and today I went back to the very same location and searched for a few hours. I think I found some more fossils, but they look very different from what I am used to find, so I'm not sure even all of them are fossils? Thank you for your time! All the best/ Linus ----- For reference this is the previous fossil ID question with the very detailed sponge -> 1. I'm pretty confident this is a fossil. I also found a belemnite at the same location that I added for reference. It looks round, I don't think it is broken more than the "top". 2. For the record, I didn't crack the stone, It was already cracked. Inside there is something that looks very much like a sponge or very large seed. But I'm puzzled by how the stone looks overall? 3. I'm not sure this is a fossil. But perhaps it is the base of a coral? 4. I'm not sure this is a fossil either... but there were a few samples that had this peculiar look. 5. There were also a few samples of these "sausage fingers", I placed them along with the belemnite for reference..
  15. The Middle Devonian fossils of New York State are well known and have been for over 100 years. I grew up in Livingston County in whats called the Genesee River Valley. The streams that feed this river within the county are rich in Devonian fossils. I collect fossil corals, brachiopods, bryozoans, crinoids&blastoids, pelecypods, gastropods, cephalopods, phyllocarids, trilobites, fish, and wood. I rearranged my favorites in my collection and thought I would share since I feel the display will remain like this for some time. Out of the thousands of Middle Devonian fossils I have collected in 30+ years, these are the ones that mean the most to me. Thanks, Mikeymig
  16. Is this a coral?

    Can anyone tell me what this is? I was thinking it was some sort of coral. I found it on the Jurassic Coast of England.
  17. Florida Agatized Coral?

    Hello everyone. Does anyone here do any hunting for agatized coral? My girlfriend loves crystals and I would like to take her on a agatized coral geod hunt. Her and I are brand new to fossil hunting and rock hounding so we have very little experience. In researching the subject I found that the popular sites to find these are the Suwanee river, Withlacoochee river, and Econfina river. Can anyone provide me with any information on the subject. Also, I know that it is a lot to ask but if anyone hunts for these regularly and wouldn't mind a couple tagging along to learn the ropes that would be amazing. Jimmy
  18. Coral ID

    I found this in south central MN near the Minnesota River. Is this a tabulate coral? Is a more specific identification possible?
  19. Fossil help

  20. ID this please Ball coral type

  21. Is This Coral?

    Can anyone tell me whether or not this is a type of coral? I found it in my yard yesterday. (Middle Tennessee, Mississippian, St. Louis Limestone & Warsaw Limestone)
  22. A Pleurodictyum Coral Day

    Today was a Pleurodictyum coral day The largest specimen is 116mm x 96mm, the biggest I have ever found!! Finding one of these extra large Pleurodictyums in a day makes the trip. The pictures of the large Pleurodictyum with the smaller size Pleurodictyum displays the huge size difference between a normal sized Pleurodictyum (35mm x 21mm) and my GIANT. Thanks
  23. What the heck is it?

    Hello, I'm trying to find out what this is. can anyone help? Thx
  24. Greetings. I have a lot of photos I’d like to share and get some feedback on, assuming there is not a unanimous agreement that the specimens you see in this photo are purely Geological in origin... I found them, and many more, within the geographical boundaries of a Jurassic age rock formation in Northern California that is listed primarily as meta volcanic rocks. Considering that information, please tell me if you thinking I’m barking up an imaginary tree here... If you are uncertain, let me know, and I will post more pictures... Thanks for your time! -Quinn
  25. Honeycomb Fossil ID

    Not exactly sure what this is (not a paleontologist- or even a collector as my username suggests). I was wondering if it was coral or fossilized honeycomb or something entirely different. Any help would be appreciated.
