  1. Fossil flower?

    Possibly a flower fossil? Found in Toowoomba, Qld Australia. Any ideas would be appreciated, thanks in advance
  2. Novice needing advice!

    Hey Everyone! I've found these in Toowoomba, Qld Australia. I was wondering if anyone knew what they were and how I should go about cleaning them up. These are my first fossils Ive found, im so excited and don't want to damage them!
  3. What kind of imprint is this?

    Found this earlier while shark tooth hunting. Just trying to find out what it is.
  4. Plant fossil

    I have searched since I found this, to figure out exactly what it is. Nobody that I have talked to has been able to for sure ID it. I found it while searching for crinoid fossils at a beach near Michigan City, Indiana, in Lake Michigan. I was swimming around, picking up anything I found, taking a look, and I tossed this one up on the beach. We were guessing that it may be the bulb part of a crinoid, but I haven't found anything online that looks exactly like this one. We used dental tools to pick out some of the sandy stuff, so we could see more detail. My hand is not in the picture for size reference, rather, I had to hold it upright to get more picture angles. My mom took this fossil to a rock show, and people were amazed by it, though they couldn't identify exactly what it is. Some said it is a once in a lifetime find. If it can't be ID'd here, I will likely take it to the university I attend, or a museum. My dinosaur class professor wasn't entirely sure about it either. I would really like to know exactly what it is. Thanks in advance for any help! I look forward to contributing to these forums!
  5. Is it coral or a flower?

    My Dad was given a few slabs of this rock from a friend in Phoenix, AZ. We can’t figure out what it is. Similar to coral fossils but they aren’t circle in shape. When he cut and polished it, it was really hard. Any ideas?
  6. The Green River Formation is one of the most well-known fossil sites in the world, occupying present-day Colorado, Utah and Wyoming. This Lagerstätte has been noted for its well-preserved fish fossils, as well as numerous invertebrates, plants, and sometimes even reptiles and birds. Green River fossils are Eocene-aged, at 53.5 to 48.5 million years old. Thankfully, not only are Green River fossils attractive, they also remain affordable to the casual collector. Allow me to present my humble collection. Crocodile tooth Borealosuchus sp. Southwest Wyoming Water bird tracks (possibly sandpipers or plovers) Presbyorniformipes feduccii Vernal, Utah Bird feather Aves indet. Southwest Wyoming Crane flies & Mosquitoes Pronophlebia rediviva & Culex sp. Parachute Creek Member; Douglas Pass, Colorado
  7. Unknown "fossil"

    Can anyone help with the identification of these? Am not sure if man-made or natural, but based on sedimentary layering in the one, they appear natural. The "gourd" or "flower" part is finer-grained material than the "stems". However, the "stems" appear to be coarser material and may even show crystalline edges. They came to a local antiques dealer via an estate sale in the southwest (possibly Arizona). They do not appear to show any wear surfaces. Thank you.
  8. Anyone able to help with ID on an interesting lepidopteran in Mexican amber from Chiapas (ca. 18-25 Ma)? Any/all thoughts much appreciated. It looked like a nymphalid (perhaps Eurema?) from merchant photos. However after getting the amber and holding it, I'm totally thrown off! There's no record of butterflies from continental Neotropical amber---and preservation is exceptional. Associated with the lep are the flowers, foliage, pollen and seeds of Hymenaea and at least 2 other legumes. Perhaps there's even an orchid hidden in there. (The max file limit's too small to include these hi-res photos...) Amber matrix: ca. 7 x 4 x 2 cm (oblong) Wingspan ca. 3.5 cm Length of wing at longest point ca. 2 cm (crude estimate) 'Unfortunately' (for ID) the amber heavily fluoresces a lovely blue/green: the foliage, pollen, flowers obscure the specimen's body on the (presumably) dorsal side. It's further complicated by refraction on what would be the ventral side. What looks like a dark antenna in the pics is actually just the a side-view of one of the flowering legume's pinnae. I wouldn't be surprised if it's a geometer moth, but what a remarkable fossil if it proves to be a skipper or true butterfly (nymphalid? lycaenid/riodinid?). Thanks all.
  9. plz go on and do tell x Area: moni some more photos as eell as similar pieces to follow in a minute
  10. Looking for plant ID

    This is carbonized plant material from the Selma Chalk formation, central Alabama. It is not uncommon to find terrestrial "driftwood" but this is the first time I have found what appears to be a fruiting body. There is a vertical center with radiating structures. Reminds me superficially of a proteaceae but I have no background on the subject. Any paleobotanists out there? s
  11. Flower Green River Formation, Parachute Creek Member Douglas Pass, Colorado. Radar Dome area. Denver Museum of Nature and Science. When I first saw this flower, I walked right past it thinking it was a dead flower laying on the rock. I'm glad something in my head made me go back and take another look. I realized that this specimen was rare and asked the Denver Museum if they were interested in it. They were, and the donation was made.
  12. Florissant Fossils

    Went to the Florissant fossil quarry, and found some nice fossils. Wondering if I could possibly get them ID'ed, since I'm a novice. Thanks.
  13. Hi all, I wish to get a Green River flower or feather. The entire fossil, including matrix, shouldn't be larger than 3" by 3". I can trade you one of my fossils (I've got amber, iridescent ammonites, croc teeth, edmontosaurus teeth etc). Thank you.
