Found this that I believe is a cephalopod today at a devonian spot with imported material, I haven't seen a cephalopod with a bulbed tip before so I am not sure if it's some sort of pathology of a species or it's own species.
Fossilienfundstellen am Wasser......ich habe meine eigene Fundstelle.......direkt vor der Haustür. Mein Sohn ist jetzt 4 Jahre alt, seit er laufen kann, werfen wir mit viel Spaß Steine in den großen Fluß, den deutschen Fluß - ´Der Rhein`. Alles was er greifen kann fliegt ins Wasser, manchmal muß ich rufen: Stop! Das ist ein Papa- Stein! Farblose durchscheinende Quarze, selten Achat und das halbe Alphabet habe ich schon so vor den Wasserfluten retten können und so manches Fossil. Der Rhein zerteilt ein mächtiges devonisches Schichtpaket in 2 Mittelgebirge, den Hunsrück und auf der anderen Seite den Westerwald und Taunus. In seinen Flußschottern transportiert er die erodierten fossil- führenden Schichten und lagert sie ....vor meiner Haustüre ab. So kann mein Junge schon von klein an die Wunder der Stein- Welt erleben und begreifen. In meiner Fossiliensammlungen hat der Junge natürlich auch seine Vitrinenplätze und sammelt da fleißig... hier sind ein paar Steine vom gestrigen Steine-Werfen: Rhein- Stein. Fossil sites at the water ...... I have my own reference ....... directly in front of the front door. My son is now 4 years old, since he can run, we throw stones with a lot of fun into the big river, the German river - 'the Rhine'. All he can take is flying into the water, sometimes I have to call: Stop! This is a Papa stone! Colorless translucent quartz, rarely agate and half the alphabet, I have already been able to save myself from the floods and many fossils. The Rhine divides a mighty Devonian stratagem in the middle range, the Hunsrück and on the other the Westerwald and Taunus. In his river gravel he transports the eroded fossil-bearing beds and stores them at my doorstep. This is how my boy can experience and understand the wonders of the stone world from a very early age. In my fossil collections, the boy naturally also has his showcases and collects diligently ... Here are a few stones from yesterday's stones throwing: Rheinstein. What about you? How did you start with fossil - hunting?
Next month, on February 7th (Superbowl Sunday, unfortunately!), the Finger Lakes Mineral Club is having an Open House event at the Museum of the Earth in Ithaca, NY. This will be the February Winter Free Day, when admission to the museum is free. We're hoping to attract interest and grow our club. My husband and I will be there with part of our collection. He'll be minding the meteorite display, while I hang out with a fluorescent light box of various mineral and fossil specimens, a table of New York fossils and minerals (many found by us, some purchased), and the stereo microscope with mounted microfossils to look at. Other Club members will bring other displays. I wanted to put out the invitation to anyone who likes rocks!
Well we made our last trip to Penn Dixie the weekend of the 13th and had a blast brought home buckets of slate and a few enrolled trilobites. I found a nice Gastropod this trip and a small on our June trip but the best surprise was yesterday as I was splitting a slab a nice nearly 2" prone slightly disarticulated phachops "popped".
