  1. Bunch of fossils, might buy

    The ones I know are the crinoid plate, knighta, PA fossil fern, dactylioceras, random ammonite, two moroccon trilobites. However, I have no idea what the middle yellow like imprint is nor the two species of black trilobite in shale. And then the two upper left fossils have me clueless. Wanted to know what they are before I consider buying. Thanks again for any help. Again, no location or collection information.
  2. Three Ammonites

    I've got the assignment to identify and collect data on these three ammonite fossils. My best guesses are that the first two are from Ceratites and that the third one is Dactylioceras. The first two are about ten to twelve centimeteres in diameter, the third one about eight. Since my School is still closed due to the current situation, these are the only pictures i have got.
  3. I recently found a rather large Dactylioceras ammonite from Saltwick Bay in Yorkshire UK. If measures around 4.2 inches which is pretty big for the species, although iv seen bigger. It was a reasonably easy prep and the matrix pulled away like it was nothing. Unfortunately there’s a small section missing from the outer whorl, either predation, or compression from fossilisation caused this. Still a lovely specimen. I’ll be posting plenty more soon, Iv been concentrating on building an online store and constantly prepping over the past few months so hardly find the time along with work. Thanks. Dan.
  4. Dactylioceras

    From the album Yorkshire Ammonites

    A lovely Dactylioceras specimen, these are the most commonly found ammonites here.
  5. Does the green stuff look like glue to you? Any way to tell if it is just repaired or a composite? Edit: seller confirmed that he though it was glue also, though he did not know if it was repaired or a composite.
  6. I recently bought this piece from online and am uncertain of its authenticity. (But not very worried - it set me back less than $10!) It looks very much like the Dactylioceras ammonites coming out of the Posidonia Shale that I see online sometimes; however, up close, the shimmer appeared suspiciously similar to glitter nail polish. I tried a little acetone on one of the small back ammonites (third photo) and the gold dusting came off easily. There doesn't seem to be any depth to the positive fossils; where the plate is chipped, there just seems to be shale underneath. There are also tons of tiny ammonite impressions on the front but almost none in back. On the other hand, pieces like these are inexpensive, so would it be really worth the trouble to forge? Dimensions of the piece are about 13cm across, 1cm deep. Thank you for your expertise! I'm learning a lot from this forum. Happy to post more photos if necessary.
  7. Dactylioceras,

    From the album Bobby’s ammonites

  8. Dactylioceras with worm tube

    From the album Bobby’s ammonites

  9. The shell is pyritized and the septa of the phragmocone are filled with calcite. More or less complete specimen.
  10. Is this Dactylioceras or Perisphinctes?

    Hi Everyone, I purchased this ammonite from a shop in Colorado several years ago. The only identification they provided was that it was an ammonite from Morocco. I believe them because the opening has been cut flat and filled in like ammonites from Morocco typically are. I have tentatively identified it as a Dactylioceras but I'm not sure, another possibility could be Perisphinctes. There also could be other possibilities, too. Since I don't have information on where it was collected, I don't know what age it comes from. I think I read an older post on this forum that the ribs on Dactylioceras only split in two, but on Perisphinctes they sometimes split into three, but I haven't been able to find that post again (Ludwigia, I seem to remember you were the one who made that comment). This one looks like some of the ribs split into 3, which might suggest Perisphinctes. Also I've included a photo showing a suture line, which I understand can be used to make an identification, but I haven't found anything on the web that gives examples of suture lines for different families. Can anyone help with the identification? Thanks for the help, this forum is amazing!
  11. Typical pyrite preservation from this area in a concretion. This is the index fossil for the semicelatum subzone.
  12. Two more multi block preps

    Here's two more mini multi blocks from Yorkshire,both Dactylioceras.sp.One prepped with tt pen only, the second one with st pen also that allows far more control around the little ammonites.
  13. Dactylioceras

    From the album Holzmaden

    Dactylioceras is a very common specie in Holzmaden.
  14. Yorkshire (Uk) Ammonites

    I recently got round to prepping a few ammonites from my collection - I collected them during the summer (August) at the Yorkshire Coast (UK), but have only just got round to prepping them. I thought I'd share them with you. I'm not an experienced prepper, so I was practising on these ammonites. I am pleased with how they turned out, although I still have a little bit of work to finish some of them off. If anyone else wants to share their Yorkshire ammonites that would be great; once we get a thread going I'll post some of my other specimens. All of these ammonites are from the Lias of the Yorkshire Coast, UK, and were prepped out of hard limestone nodules. I used the Chicago Pneumatic from start to finish on all of theses ammonites, and then I gave them a light coat of beeswax.
