  1. I bought this out of curiosity and because I think it's rather beautiful. It was sold as a bryozoan which it clearly isn't though you can see why it was. It seems to be a diploporitan echinoderm, showing internal structure of plates (humatipores) and a small area of the external layer with diplopores. The location is given as Tafilalet region, Erfoud area, Anti-Atlas Mountains. My questions are: 1) is it Devonian (as sold) or perhaps Ordovician? Both are possible for the area - I've read that Devonian diploporitans occur in Morocco. These would be sphaeronitidae - the only group to survive into the Devonian. 2) Has anyone come across anything similar from Morocco, or indeed elsewhere, and can you narrow down the ID? Back surface, showing that it consists of articulated plates (these are the same plates as the other side, it's not a compressed hollow specimen). patch of diplopores: Ramifying humatipore respiratory structures: Closeup of plates showing pustular ornament:
  2. Trilobite - Morocco

    I picked this up at a market stall in Fes this week. No information other than it is from South of me in Morocco. Because I thought it was sweet and it has a cracking bryozoan around the eyes (which are sadly broken) I think it looks like Devonian matrix and is a Phacopid? Phacops speculator? It is about 6 cm long. (straight line, not including the curve over) @piranha And anyone got any ideas re the bryozoa?
  3. I thought this might be a trilobite, but it isn't quite matching up. I found this is Big Rapids Michigan, in my garden. The overall rock is 2.25 inches in length, while the section in question is about .75 inches in length. The second picture is the back side of the rock because why not. Thank you kindly for your help, Lord knows I need it.
  4. Below is another fossil from my garden in Big Rapids, Michigan. There seems to be more than one thing going on with it. Again, any info is appreciated.
  5. This came out of my garden in Big Rapids, Michigan. It has a ridge on one side, which is the close-up picture. The two sides look a little bit different, which is throwing me off. Most of what I find is sponge, horn and honeycomb coral. Honestly, I am rather obtuse when it comes to fossils, although I love them so. Considering this, any insight would be greatly appreciated. (I think I find mostly Devonian period items)
  6. I am a first time user and novice fossil hunter, so please excuse my lack of knowledge. I do not know what time period this comes from, although I believe most of what I find is from the Devonian period. I mainly look where I live (Big Rapids) and have pulled a number of these rocks out of my garden while preparing for spring planting or tilling down at the end of Fall. I typically find quite a few honeycomb and horn coral, which I can usually identify, but I have come across a number of items I am not sure of, one of which is below. Any help identifying this would be appreciated.
  7. Morrocan goniatite?

    not sure if this is Goniatite or not, but I bought several of these from a Morrocan dealer many years ago only cause they were all stuck onto a concretion. I took this one and polished it up. It was covered in a very very hard 'crust'. I dont remember just how long it took me but Im sure it was over 10 hours. I remember I didnt want to do any more! But it came out purty good. Wish i had a before picture? I can see that it needs even more work, but not sure if Im gunna get around to that? RB
  8. Could this be the inside of a clam?

    I was cleaning up some of my fossils and came across this piece that is broken in half. It was in a box with some of my other fossils from MI. The matrix is softer than any other fossil I have collected feom MI. It is falling apart with a soft toothbrush and water. It is shaped like the inside of a clam. But it is full of small pieces of wash. What is the best way to handle this? Keep cleaning with a toothbrush and remove fossils as they loosen? It has been several years since I collected these... Maybe it isnt old at all?? Thanks, Kim Another view
  9. Greenbrier County, WV finds

    Hey all. I found these pieces in some road fill in White Sulphur Springs, WV. The driver who brought in the fill said it came from a local creek, but I have yet to track down the source. I've only found a handful of pieces of this material. I think it might be quartzite. It is very friable. There are some crinoids and brachiopods in the matrix. I was hoping someone here might be able to shed some light on what these long fossils are. The scale is in inches. Thanks for looking
  10. Ammonite With Pyrolusite Dendrites?

    I found this partial weathered ammonite on the shore of Hemlock lake, one of the lesser Finger lakes of New York State years ago. It is 4.5 cm at the widest. I am assuming because of the condition that it is not possible to id. I sure couldn't by looking though an article on NY ammonites. Is the pattern on it pyrolusite dendrites and with the pink color could it be pink quartz that is the replacement mineral? The first picture is dry. The others I wet it to help show the pattern.
