  1. Gemworld 2018

    Ok, I admit that I dropped the ball on this one. I fully intended on promoting my local gem and fossil show months ago. But I kept procrastinating and putting it off and eventually forgot. Well this weekend the show is on, and me and the boys did a little shopping today. My budget was a modest one as we spent wnough on our trip to Ocean City. Plus Pappa treated himself to a top of the line fly fishing rod that was discounted at almost half off. ( it was still expensive). So I went to the show today with sharkteeth, trilos, tools, and display cases on my mind. Not sure what I wanted more. Just looking for the most bang for the few bucks I had. There are two fossil dealers that have been coming for years so I headed rigbt over to take a gander. The one Gentleman owns a shop in Hamburg New York. The other gentleman I believe, lives in Jersey. This fella, had just what the doctor ordered. Very nice quality sharkteeth at qhat I fwlt were fair prices. Now as much as I like large impressive sharkteeth, I can be just as happy with smaller perfect teeth. So considering the money I had I went with smaller really nice teeth. I also bought 2 riker mounts. Here is my score. These teeth are awesome in my opinion. Also I asked, and checked for repairs or restoration. The dealer was respectable enough to show me ones that were and those were labeled as such.

  3. Preparing fossils

    I have never attempted to remove a fossil from rock. I don't have any tools, so I am looking to invest in tools needed. What's the best way to extract the fossil??
  4. Fossil? Type of leg bone??

    Any idea what this us or what from?
  5. Mammal or Avian fossil?

    Hello, I was out near central alberta the other day and I found two different specimens (I'll post the other one in a different thread). I doubt you'll be able to tell me what animal it came from but I was hoping the type of bone could be identified? Its heavy- so I'm pretty sure its fossilized. Its dark brown in color (pictures dont show this) and it appears to be hollow or possibly the marrow has fallen out but the inside looks quite smooth.
  6. Multiple fossils?

    Here are some better pictures of the one rock (fossil?)
  7. I found these fossils in a single rock in Gelsenkirchen (Halde Rheinelbe) at the weekend. I believe most of them are Alethopteris, but with some of them I'm not sure (e.g. #1, 3 (tree bark?), 7) Maybe @Nimravis #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8
  8. Fossils??

  9. Fossils??

    I have my own flowerbed business, which is to say, I pull weeds. Lol. I can tell you all about flowers, but alas I am clueless and at your mercy when it comes to your expertise; fossils. So, recently a client asked me to haul all this rock out and put in cement edging. He had bought the house with the rock already there. So, I hauled it off. But, I have been looking at the rocks and I'm wondering if these are the previous owners fossil collection. Can you tell me if these are fossils?? If so, can you point me in the right direction on researching them?? There's still a ton of rock that remains in this yard that he is going to just bulldozer whatever I don't get hauled off. I live in Kansas, but don't know where these rocks or fossils were found
  10. Big Brook finds/ some Id help

    Some cool Big Brook finds...some are pretty straight forward, but as for othes, if anyone can help with some IDs I’d appreciate it...getting a little better with these finds. #1 gastropod
  11. Cove Point

    A decent day at cove point beach. Unfortunately, it's private, but if you can find access this place is pretty good. A pretty rare find for me, Odontocete teeth and a porpoise tooth. Sorry we don't have a good picture, but it may be there on the image with a lot of teeth. Some pretty big teeth but they all weren't in the best shape. Giant Threshers, Duskies, Hammerheads, Tigers, Lemons, Etc.... A pretty good display of the types of teeth found here. I actually found a goblin shark tooth which is a lot older than the rest of these. It's Paleocene instead of Miocene, so about 25-40 million years older. (This exact type of course, some Goblins are Miocene, Cretaceous, Oligocene, and present.)

    Hi guys, this is are some shots of a didattic exhibition that I have created in a medieval bastion in my city Brindisi, in Italy. This is the beginning, I hope i can expand it with time. Hope you like it. Danny
  13. So you see from Morocco (Ouled Abdoun, late paleocene- early Eocene?) These funky looking Cow sharks called Weltonia ancistrodon. Though I don’t own one, I still have questions about it. The questions I have are the following: 1) There are always lowers. Never, not once, have I seen for sale an upper. Where are they? What do they look like? What about Symphyseals? 2) Have they ever been found anywhere else? I find it hard to believe they only come from the one site. 3) what is the purpose of the weird blade? Any papers on this?
  14. I created this topic for anyone who wants an opinion from others on a potential purchase. Not regarding if the price right, because that’s totally up to you...I’m more concerned about quality, rarity, etc. Post here if you’re on the fence about anything. To kick it off, I’m gonna share what I came across....I’m not sure on the availability on such things like dino eggs meaning, “do I wait or purchase?” I know there are fakes, and I know the quality comes in all ranges...the detail in this particular shell is interesting.... question is, would you hold off and wait for something better, or would you purchase this bit of shell? Not crazy expensive anyway. A magnified Titanosaur argentinosaurus eggshell x4. I sent the seller more specific questions.
  15. Hi I’m really new at this. I know a good amount about current biology but little on that which is extinct. Basically I want to learn more and this summer I want to look for fossils by the lake (Connecticut) but I don’t know what I should be looking for? I know it’ll prob be sedimentary rock, but other than how do I know what’s a good rock? (also feel free to leave me any cool facts)
  16. Purse and Flags Pond

    Hey all, On Sunday I drove from Virginia to Purse and then to Flags Pond in Maryland. I felt quite disappointed. I had to look REALLY hard which took a toll on my back. I go to both parks at least a few times a year; but since my last visit (Purse in October) , I noticed a drastic change in the quantity of fossils around. My last visit I remember it was so much easier to find fossils and a lot more of them without going very far. I know in the summer parks tend to get busier, but both beaches felt way over picked in my opinion. I was going to go to Calvert the next day, but I decided to head back to Virginia that same day. Not sure if I will ever go back to Purse anymore, seemed like that beach was cleared up real well. Any local Maryland fossil hunters noticing this change?? Or is it just me??
  17. My first Permian Fossils

    Hi all, I finally found my first Permian age fossils in southern Nevada, however I'm no expert on this age so perhaps some of you could help me out. In general I know what a brachipod looks like but it's really hard for me to tell when looking at these fossils. I'm not sure if the first one is one, or is just some sort of rock.

  19. Melbourne Fossils

    G’cay everyone, My uncle is heading down to Melbourne, Florida tomorrow for a University conference and he was thinking of doing some fossiling down there. Being an Aussie, I do not know much about fossils around Melbourne but have done some research and believe you can collect some micro fossils from the Indian river? He does not plan to travel ouf of Melbourne. Any help regarding sites around Melbourne and tools needed would be appreciated. Thanks, Daniel
  20. I’m in Birmingham for a few days. Does anyone know of any cool fossil shops or cool places to go? Thank you in advance. Sincerely, J
  21. Auction sites

    Could someone share with me some reputable on-line auction sites for fossils? Thanks

  23. Fossils in Idaho

    I will be in Idaho Falls in August, what are some good spots for fossils within an hour or so?
  24. Found a cluster of small fossils??

    Hello all! I'm back again with some unidentified fossils. I was working in my garden this afternoon and stumbled across a rock containing a cluster of small fossils, ranging in size. These were found in Northern Illinois, close to where I found another shell fossil I asked about. All comments are appreciated! Thanks!
  25. If you had $50 to spend on fossils what would you get? Please include price and pictures
