  1. Possible fossil?

    found this fossil looking thingy loooong ago in the Netherlands. It kinda has the shape of a bone but i have no idea.
  2. Coral in Colorado?

    I found this in my backyard. Is it fossilized coral? western Colorado
  3. Need Help Identifying

    Hey everyone! Amateur fossil hunter here! Can someone help me out with what this is? Found in Nanaimo in a shale deposit, not sure what the vertical lighter section is. Was surround by fossilized shells. Thanks for your help!
  4. Strange heavy jagged rock

    I found this “rock” a while ago. I kept it because it was very heavy for its size but when I got it home it didn’t turn out to be metal of any sort. It reminds me of a corkscrew in a way as it does repeat the same pattern. I really don’t think it’s a concretion. Any help would be much appreciated.
  5. Can anyone tell me what this is?

    I found this in a canyon in Sanderson, tx. Thought is was really cool. But I really want to know what it is exactly. Thanks
  6. This tooth has popped up on my radar. It is an interesting looking tooth, especially for coming out of Georgia. Anyone seen similar teeth from that area??
  7. Fossilized Tip of a Fin Spine

    From the album Fin Spine Fossils

    Currently unidentified, it comes from a rockpile aged to the pennsylvanian with a mixture of winterset and Iola limestone formations strewn throughout I found this away from any matrix and very delicate my best guess is that this comes from Ctenacanthus any other guesses are welcomed! its size is 11mm
  8. Dorsal Fin Spine Fossil

    From the album Fin Spine Fossils

    Even Though it is Poorly preserved it measures just about 12.7cm there is not an ID on this one, although I assume it to be from a Hybodus or a large Ctenacanthus since this is found in Pennsylvanian aged rock There are Phosphatic nodules present in this limestone chunk suggesting it is from the formation: Muncie Creek shale
  9. Body armour?

    Here is yet another fossil me and my wife found today in North Myrtle Beach. It looks possibly like some type of body armour maybe off a armadillo but we are not sure. Please help us identify this fossil.
  10. Hello everyone! I recently received this cool fossil from the Devonian in Scotland, it is a Palaeospondylus gunni: I have seen fossils of this enigmatic organism prepared in really wonderful ways to expose more of the animal and I was wondering: would this be possible to do here? I am not exactly sure of the process used on the others, possibly just really fine air abrasion? The fossil seems to be rather thin against the rock but it isn't completely flat, here are some pictures I took under the digital microscope, hopefully they might show it a bit better. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I am happy to provide more pictures if necessary. Thank you for your time!
  11. Bivalves

    Here is a nice pair of bivalves (sterkin) fossils. Me and my wife found, they were found in Myrtle Beach in the shell patches. The one on the right has a nice coral growth on it.
  12. Myrtle Beach turtle shell fragment

    Here is another turtle shell fragment found on the beach today at low tide.
  13. Unidentified piece

    My wife found this to today on Myrtle Beach. I have no idea what it is. To me it doesn't look like a stone it has a strange texture and the consistency of bone. If anybody out there knows what this is we would appreciate it greatly.
  14. Puffer fish mouth plates

    Here are some puffer fish mouth plates me and my wife found today on Myrtle Beach.
  15. Big Brook, NJ

    Hi everyone! I found these at the Big Brook Preserve in Colts Neck, NJ in May of 2020. This was my first fossil hunt so I'm pretty sure I was at the wrong exact location but I was nearby. I found them directly in the creek and had to use a sifter. This was also after a rainstorm. I'm not sure if anything here is a fossil, but I figured I'd ask the experts! Please let me know if you want closer pictures or other angles of any of them. Thanks for taking a look! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.
  16. Today, something really strange happened. I happen to be carrying a piece of petrified wood, when the wood slipped out of my hands and dropped and broke. When I looked at the pieces, picking them up, I found one piece that had a large crystal structure. I wasn’t sure what it was. I decided to do a test to see if it was Amber. I’m pretty sure that Amber floats when put in water, but I’m not sure. I could be wrong. To my surprise, a lot of stuff was floating in my bowl of water. After looking at the pieces of the crystal structure under magnifier, I think I discovered that I have found Amber in my petrified wood fossil. It has the color, and it has some of the properties. It floats in water. I am not sure if it’s Amber or something else, but I will attach pictures later, as the file sizes are too big and I need to adjust them. I thought it would catch everyone’s interest. Jared
  17. What do I have here

    This egg was handed down to me by a relative who recently passed all I was told of this specimen was that it was found in riverside California
  18. Got these this week. Still have a few more Megs on the way in but these arrived today. first is a red tooth from N.C. It's a bit over 3 inches. Not perfect but it has a great color. A little damage on the serrations and the tip is also gone but the enamel is gorgeous. I believe these come from the miocene era ? Next one is a 3 15/16 green tooth from Indonesia. I believe it is miocene era tooth. It's got some cool coloration. No tip but that's ok, that's what made it affordable. 3rd on the list is my Jumbo tooth. Also a NC tooth but this one from off the coast in deep water. It's not as good of condition but at 6.15 inches long and 5.10 inches at the widest point I am not complaining. It has some cool colors to it and is just a massive tooth. I have a pic of it with a tooth from Bill Eberlein that measured 6.06 inches from Florida. It is a tad shorter and narrower, but thicker and in slightly better condition. Weight is similar, but I would give the NC the advantage there just from holding them. Last tooth is a new one from Bill that isn't up to the typical standards I buy from him at this size, but that color outstanding to me and really unique. Bill said it was 4.98 inches, though my calipers make it hard to make the call between that and full 5 inches, but I will defer to Bill on this. Its a nice tooth even with the root damage and the chips in the blade. That blue color really pops out at you in person. Then we have a couple of Ammonites from the Duck Creek formation. The big one is 15.1 inches in diameter and has some fabulous details to it. The smaller owe isn't as nice but I'm not complaining as my 8 year old daughter loves it. Gonna try to get up to the Waurika sight when traveling through there and see what there is to see.
  19. ID please

    Any ideas on what this is? Found in Jax by St. John’s River
  20. Petrified wood

    Found this piece today on North Myrtle Beach. I have never found a piece of petrefied wood before but I do own a piece. The pattern on it looks like examples I've seen bit I'm not sure. Any help with greatly be appreciated
  21. Beach fossil

    Found this piece today on North Myrtle Beach. It has a neat pattern on it. It is a roughly 1/4 inch thick. It could possibly be a turtle shell fragment? That is my closest guess. Found on North Myrtle Beach.
  22. Large imprints found

    Hello! While living in Hawaii, I found these, I really do not know much about them, they are heavy and solid, any ideas on what they are? They were found on beach in sand like this, round and separate from a large rock, one is double sided
  23. Hello, Following the advise I made a new topic! Anyone interested? I have a lot of fossil material from Europe to trade. Ammonites, Echinoids and many molluscs. Ammonites and echinoids are my main interest. greetings Walter
  24. Fossil seeds, or roots?

    Hello, I picked up several strange "buds" in the desert this morning. I usually find small petrified wood chunks (possibly acacia) at this spot, but I have never seen this before. They really do look like seeds (like stretched walnuts). Found in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, UAE (United Arab Emirates). I think it is Miocene in age. (The first 3 look more like the familiar wood, except that they have weird small bumps on them.)
