  1. Found in coal seam

    I work in the coal mine in South western pa. Northern wv. I find petrified wood mostly fern tree piece but can't find much about them online. I also find what I think is pyrite.I know that they are mostly fern. They are out of the Pittsburgh seam and are around 330 million years old. Any other info would be appreciated.
  2. Plant Fossil

    I found this nice plant fossil at the base of the cliff last year. I think it's my best plant so far I'm sure my usual pen would be way too strong and easily damage this delicate fossil. I think removing some of the rock at the right hand side of the fern could make it look better. I'm tempted to try and just split it off but i know it could damage fern. What are your thoughts?
  3. Here’s the first fossils I’ve ever found! Found in Webster County, West Virginia. Where they hollow out a road. The stone is shale from my knowledge..... I’d love to know it’s age and name? And, how to prep them.
  4. ferns and urchin

    Hi everybody, i recently made an exchange and so i received those ferns, all i know is that they come from Colorado, i have no other clue about them. I also received an unknown urchin and have no clue about it. Could you help me know a bit more about them ? The longest diagonal of that piece is a little less than 15 cm, the base is about 13 cm and it is about 11 cm hight. @Plantguy @paleoflor ?
  5. Plant fossil from Pennsylvania

    I recently acquired this multi species fern fossil from a friend who said it came from Pennsylvania. I wonder if anyone knows the age and species of the plants here? Thanks for looking.
  6. Seed Fern

    I see a fair amount mentioned online about seed ferns. How did these differ from modern day spore bearing ferns? Where these seed ferns true ferns?
  7. Fern Prep

    My dad and I collected this large fern several months ago in PA and have since contemplated how best to prepare it in order for the fossil to be visible. When the material is dampened, the fossil is visible; but, when the shale dries, the fern kinda disappears back into the material. We read somewhere that coating the material in Butvar may darken the material and may make the fossil more visible; however, we would love to hear the thoughts and suggestions on this group. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  8. Here is a sample of a fern and Cordaites along the bottom (my guess) I've been finding. Pennsylvanian formation in an area with igneous intrusions. I would enjoy being able to identify and label different fern types in the future so any help naming these now and a good source for learning more would be my ideal goal. Lastly; what induces the coloration? Is it some form of pyritization? High iron mineral content of water and ground it grew in at the time? I have additional specimen photos that appear to be of other types but I just realized my file sizes are limiting how many I can post at a time...need to learn how to do better in future posts.
  9. Carbondale PA

    Hello everyone! I am in the process of investigating the fossil site in Carbondale PA but can't seem to find the exact place where to go or any directions, there were some things I saw on the forum but they look like they are on private property. If anybody knows about it new insight would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  10. small prehistoric plant print

    Hello everyone ! I found on a rockside a piece of slate with a plant print on it, but I can't figure out which kind of fern it is. In my view it's wormfern. Anybody else have an idea what it might be ? Greetings Raptoria
  11. Fern or cycad fossil

    Is this a tree fern/cycad fossil? It measures 12cm in diameter and is round in shape. It is from Liaoning of China.
  12. Hi, a month back I bought these two plant fossils at a shop. But unfortunatly the guy at the store forgot to put the information card of them in the box. :/ What I can remember reading when I bought them was that they were from the Triassic era and that they were found in the Bruchsal area in Germany. But that's unfortunatly all I could remember, I don't know their exact age or species. I tried to research the exact age of the fossils found in that area or what species can be found there, but unfortunatly in my search I did not find any anwsers, only one guy with pictures of the same fossil species from the same area and age, but unfortunatly I did not get a reply back from the guy. So I was hoping one of you guys here could help me to ID the fossil. Thanks in advance! photo hosting
  13. Collected from the K. jason subzone within the Lower Oxford Clay of Peterborough. I thought it could potentially be a palm leaf due to the veins, though wood is prolific - a leaf would be atypical of marine deposits? GBP 1 pence piece for size reference Any help would be much appreciated. Jacob.
  14. Fern from Athens, Ohio

    Hello TFF, I found what I am most certain is a fern in Athens, Ohio while I was doing oreintation for college last summer. The fossil is very faint and I’m not sure what formation it belongs to nor the species. I plan on giving it to my father for Father’s Day because while he doesn’t collect fossils he loves plant fossils and finds my hobby fascinating. I know he’ll love it, even if this is my only fern I’ve found to date. I did manage to get some other plant bits which I am unsure of, I’ll try and get an ID later. If anyone could help that would be greatly appreciated.
  15. Fern type print

    This came from Arkansas about 30 miles north of Russellville
  16. A Strange Rhode Island Fern

    I was going through some material from Cory’s Lane, a Carboniferous fossil site in Rhode Island, when I noticed this fern. It didn’t really look like anything else I had and so I came here for some help. I’m very new to identifying fern fossils, so any help is greatly appreciated.
  17. Some kind of plant?

    Is this wood? Or some kind of fern plant? I collected this at saltwick bay.
  18. Unknown Plant Fossil

    From the album FreeRuin's Finds

    Pretty sure it is not an ichnofossil, but with two leaflets on the rock I don't have much to ID it from. Hartford Basin Portland Formation Massachusetts
  19. So yeah as the title says decided to go here the day before my birthday to hunt for some plant fossils was good fun only found the one outcrop...umm yeah and thought I would share it with you guys also good piece of advice if you go here bring consolidate with you and wear wellies.
  20. Fern? (Update: Triarthrus beckii)

    Found this on a Lake Champlain beach, looks like a fern but any info would be great!
  21. Eusphenopteris?

    I was hiking in Berkeley county WV and last week and came across this fern fossil? I'm a neophyte when it comes to fossil ID but wanted to know if anyone could give me some idea of what I found? Thanks, Matt Orsie - Hedgesville, WV
  22. Can't help with the initial question but when checking the seller's offerings I just had to spontaneously buy a fern fossil as it looked so amazing and the price seemed also very ok! I've never bought a plant fossil before but also never seen a Carboniferous fossil which looked so well preserved and colorful to me. Oddly I can't find any of these anywhere else on the web and hardly any information about the locality. Does anyone have any information about the locality or the formation? Greetings from Germany
  23. Plant material?

    This is obviously not a seed fern fossil, but the "fossil guy" at the flea market across the river in Jersey told me that it is a fern. My understanding was that it is petrified plant material, a petrified fern. I'm not confident in his identification as he, I now know, missed several identifiable pieces (crinoid columnals and a chunk of perfect rose quartz, for example) or simply wasn't as into looking as he said he was. So, I need another ID! Again, as usual, it was found under the bridge behind my house in Bucks County, PA along the creek not far from the Delaware river.
  24. Carboniferous tree fern

    Two days ago I bought this nice fossil for a very convenient price at a local shop. Unfortunately, the seller could not remember key informations about this specimen, but he told me that it probably was Pecopteris and came from Germany. I want to identify it for a proper display alongside my other Carboniferous fossils, but I need again some help from a more experienced collector. In my opinion it is very similar, if not identical, to an other Acitheca (Pecopteris) polymorpha specimen I previously identified on an old topic thanks to this wonderful community. It may be the same plant, but I'm not sure. I am also skeptical about its German origin, is it reliable? Here is the upper side of the fossil: Pinnules detail from the other side (not exceptional quality, but I tried to make them more clear with a flashlight) Thanks in advance for your help!
  25. Here are a couple of "old" pieces from St. Clair that I found. The first one is a faint trace that I think is Pectopteris but I find it so rarely at St. Clair I can't tell for sure. What is throwing me off is that the leaflets are getting longer as they progress along the rachis whereas I have always thought that Pectopteris had a consistent leaflet length along the whole leaf. Then the second piece is a cluster of leaves/leaflets that don't match anything I've seen before. The tips of the leaves are not pointed enough for Alethopteris and not wide enough for Neuropteris. Any suggestions are appreciated.
