  1. Fossil ID near Durham, NC

    This is the first time I've tried to go looking for fossils and found this while breaking apart some sedimentary rocks. I don't know if I'm seeing the cross section of something. The lighter grey, white area really stood out against the normal red yellow white of the surrounding stone. Located near the edge of a creek bed. According to the usgs the area is Felsic Metavolcanic Rock and in the period of Cambrian/Late Proterozoic.
  2. Marl Slate Fossil

    Found this in marl slate, any ideas on what it is fossil wise?
  3. Marl Slate Mystery Fossil

    this is a fossil from the Permian marl slate of North East England and I cant figure out what it is, im thinking plant but not completely ssure, if it is plant anyone have an ID on species?
  4. Carboniferous plant deposits

    I'm wondering if there are any Carboniferous coal deposits that are in the north east of England, I've been to seaham and found some nice plant material but I'm wondering if there are any other locations where nice plant material can found in the Durham area?
  5. Fossil Fish?

    Hello I was looking for fossils this morning in Durham and found this, I am uncertain as to what this is? I thought maybe plant material or a small fish?
  6. Three productids with most of their spines intact, showing that they looked like hedgehogs. I haven't identified them further largely because I can't see the shells properly. (Edit: likely to be Echinoconchus or similar echinoconchid - see below) These are from a Brigantian (Mississippian) mudstone in NE England, Co.Durham. 1) About 6cm across 2) Interior brachial valve showing spines projecting around the edge from behind. About 3cm across. 3) about 4cm across:

    "Standard" D. bipartitum section showing complete central lamella. Great Limestone, Weardale, County Durham, UK.
  11. This post is prompted by finding a near complete specimen of Cornuella cf. ornata, Brigantian, (Mississippian) shale above the Four Fathom Limestone. Co. Durham, UK. Apart from one fragment from the early 19th century I can find nothing comparable in the UK literature.. Fine specimens have been found in Russia from the Serpukhovian Stage (upper Mississippian, slightly later than this one). See at the end of the post for both of these. I previously had just a single, small fragment which was a mystery. A friend then gave me another fine 3D fragment from Scotland and this was kindly identified by a Russian collector on another forum (@valh on here, thank you Valerij!). Details on TFF here: ornamented orthocone, scotland Here's my new specimen which was in a wet, disintegrating mudstone. I held it together in the field with cyanoacrylate then dried it for a few days. Prepping was with a scalpel under a 20x microscope, consolidating the matrix and shell with 5-10% paraloid as I went along. (Took about 25 hours I think.) It's too fragile to risk air abrading - the shell was already gone from the living chamber and barely attached to the rest of it. As collected: The first UK reference is Orthocera rugosa, Fleming 1828, a fragmentary specimen with a description only. This was figured in 1835 in Phillips "Illustrations of the Geology of Yorkshire" Vol. 2, plate 21, no. 16 naming it as Orthoceras rugosum Fleming. I can't find another figured specimen in UK literature. (Phillips simply gives "Northumberland" as the locality - the next county up from Durham.) Below is the plate of Russian Cornuella ornata (Eichwald) from Shimansky, 1968. (Shimansky, V. N., 1968: Kamennougolniye Orthoceratida, Oncoceratida, Actinoceratida i Bactritida (Carboniferous Orthoceratida, Oncocerida, Actinoceratida and Bactritida). Akademiia Nauk SSSR, Trudy Paleontologicheskogo Instituta, vol. 117, p. 1–151, pls. 1–20. (in Russian). And here's my original mystery fragment:
  12. Axophyllum sp.

    A rare genus from this bed, one previous record seen from Cumbria. It is common earlier in the Mississippian of the region. The voids are filled with transparent calcite. This genus has a lonsdaleoid outer dissepimentarium (looking like large bubbles). As is most commonly the case, it was largely removed prior to fossilisation, leaving a trace on one side (see photo 4). The contorted axial region is typical.
  13. Fenestella plebeia

    A small colony surrounded by Archaeocidaris debris. It shows the obverse side , i.e. the side with pores. It is preserved on the top face of a thin limestone lens that was overlain by shale. This is the most common fenestrate bryozoan in this area but the majority of specimens are found in shale and rarely split to show the obverse as it is the "stickier" side due to the pores.
  14. Strange Neogene "Fossil"

    In the Life and Science Museum in Durham County, there is a pit of Miocene Aurora sediments not unlike the one next to the Aurora Fossil Museum (though this one is extremely overpicked). While I was there, I found this weird thing with strange circular holes in it. It's also surprisingly lightweight as well. Could someone tell me what it might be? It looks somewhat like a reptilian scute, but it may simply be a piece of phosphate.
