  1. Geology club excursion to the coast of France This weekend we had a 2 day excursion to the northern coast of France. First up were the Cenomanian cliffs in that area, although the use of tools was limited we were allowed to collect in the boulders laying on the beach. The stormy weather had done a great job at providing fresh material, and lots of fossils could be picked up on the beach. The 2nd day we went a few kilometers to the south were late Jurassic cliffs are exposed. There were no restrictions on collecting here, although we stayed away from the cliffs for obvious safety reasons. The fossils were sparser than on the previous location, but with a little effort we found bivalves and gastropod steinkerns , ammonites and evan a few very nice echinoids. pictures from saturday: pictures from sunday:
  2. Airabrading at last....

    So for several years i knew that getting better prepresults would have to include a air abrader. With my Junair silent compressor this was problematic as there is not enough airflow, so these last years i was limited to pen work.... A few month’s ago my beloved Junair got a leak in the tank, repair was not very cheap, so i upgraded to a much more powerful compressor, not silent but workable....I also bought a very old Renfert abrader, very cheap, which after replacing the filter set started to work very fine.... So here’s some prep results with this setup. At last i was able to prep a few of my finds from my 2012 trip to the Lafarge quarry at Belmont, France. Allthough i ‘m really happy with the results so far, it’s a very slow process, even with the replaced filterset on the Renfert. Some matrix is just too problematic for this Renfert machine. I’m not sure why, maybe it’s not effective enough, or maybe it’s because the unit is limited to 6 bar, so i cannot push it more..... At the moment i’m waiting my custom build Eckhard Petersen abrader, this unit should cover it. So i hope for more and better pix in the future....
  3. It was a Sunny day and we went to the Portlandian beach of Wimereux,northern France Many pelecypods internal mold
  4. Recognize this bone structure?

    Does anyone recognize these grooves on the outside of this bone fragment? This was found in upper Jurassic sediments in North of France, mainly marine but terrestrial is possible. I have never seen this structure before on the outside of a bone.
  5. I went today for a new carboniferous hunt,a lot of water but no rain,very nice day! A carboniferous heart?
  6. Miocene shells

    Hi, I have been through my shells collection from the Miocene of South East France: And a few of the shells are still not identified @FranzBernhard @Coco A ? B ? C the left one maybe MOERELLA and right LINGA ? D ? E: CLAVATULA ? F ? G?
  7. 2 ammonites

    Hi all, i need help to identify correctly those two ammonites. The first, i think an Hoplites and even maybe an Hoplites (Hoplites) benettionis var. devisensis ? I have no indication on its location and age. The second one is from the Jurassic of Jard sur Mer in the Vendée department. I think it could be an Oxycerites orbis, or, at least, an Oppelidae.
  8. French Meg tooth

    Hi, I just brought this shark tooth. It was labelled as shown in the first picture, can anyone see any restoration or any other problems.
  9. Hi guys what do you think of this dinosaur egg? It misses quite a lot off egg shell right? It comes from an old collection and is found in the Aix-en-Provence, Bouches-du-Rhône, Provence in France. Often sold as Hypselosaurus egg. Approximately 25 cm. I know these eggs are quite rare but I am doubting.
  10. Theropod claw from France?

    Hi is this a theropod claw from France? it is 6 mm long.

  12. Hi all, I have been more or less away from the forum for the last few monthes. Life has been hectic. And if i still managed to go on the field quite a lot, i did have any time left for the rest (writing, taking photos, processing stuff, labelling etc). Nevertheless, i finally manage a quick photo session. As an appetizer, what is prolly the best piece for quite some time. A double trilo, Eodalmanitina sp, one preserved with his caudal spine. So 2 rocks as a starter . I had to sacrifice part of the 2 counterprints, to unveil the opposite trilo... Regards.
  13. Bone from upper jurassic

    Hi, I've found this bone in France kimmeridge clay. It's marine deposit so the majority of vertebrates are marine reptiles like pliosaur, plesiosaur, crocodile, ichthyosaur etc.. I have some ideas about the determination of this bone but I do not prefer to influence you. Many thanks for your help. Regards Carbon.
  14. Is this a fossilized finger?

    Hi, I found this on a hike on a nature walk outside of Paris. It looks like an index finger with wrinkles and nail, but I may be mistaken. Can you help identify this object? It is made of solid rock.
  15. It was a very hot day today,but it was not the Sahara only Northern France!
  16. Hi! I found these fossils on my day at les vaches noires in Normandie, France today and i could really use your help identifying them. Thanks in advance!
  17. From the album fish

    Thanks Marguy!
  18. From the westphalian of Northern France,I would trade these large plates for other fossils i still not have:) A Lepidodendron trunk imprint and a stem
  19. Pixpaleosky web site

    Hi all, i would like to share my website with you ! It tells mainly about my 2 favorites collections: fish fossils from the world and fossils from South East of France. A bit later I will add dinosaur fossils pictures from my collection. This is in french for now but maybe you can translate or tell me if their a solution because google translate for website seems down. Enjoy http://webfossiles.free.fr
  20. What are these fossils?

    Hi! So I am totally a newbie on the subject and would really like to have your help identifying these fossils i found on the beach between Villers-sur-mer and Houlgate in Normandie, Thanks in advance

  22. Urchin spine

    Hi, several months ago i found a very tiny and rather flat urchin in a block which had two spines. I managed to disengage the urchin, but it is really too tiny for my camera. The spines are bigger and i wondered to what family of urchin they belong (maybe a cidarid ?) I also join the photos of the urchin that was with them (although i don't know if that would help). @Coco @caterpillar ? The smallest spine : The bigger :
  23. Hi everybody. I friend of mine entrusted me with his fossils and minerals because he wants to make tradings against carboniferous items. If you have coal to trade he'd like something with a mineral Inside (he's from the north of France, so he has plenty of coal). Please, PM me your proposals, i'll show him your photos. A : Saint Germain de Joux, department of Ain, Kimmeridgian 1 2 3 4 5 6
  24. Panopea ?

    Hi, i found that pelecypod in the serravallian of my department (Landes), in France. I thought it could be a Panopea. What do you think ? Note : i can't take photos of the other side because it is too fragile to be totally disengaged from its matrix.
  25. Ammonites from northern France

    I bought a group of ammonites recently and they were described as coming from the Brittany coast of northern France. I don't know a lot about fossil sites along the French coast but after a little digging I came to the conclusion these probably came from sites nearer Normandy. I asked the seller for further information but sadly the person who collected them has passed away. I thought I'd post a few pics here in the hope that someone might be able narrow down the locality a little further. Thanks in advance for any help!
