  1. Inherited collection

    Hello everybody, Thank You for having me I inherited all these, and to be honest, I've had them a long time and never really looked at them. I was cleaning up and started to examine them and haven't been able to put them down. When she was alive all she wanted to talk about was these rocks. I wished I would have listened because now I have very little info about them. Thank you for any recommendations on where I might have them looked at and identified? I look forward to hearing from yall. Nevermind there must be a way to upload more pics?

  6. 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.
  7. Today, for the first time, I decided to go out to the Kane County Fairgrounds, Batavia, Illinois- to see what the CGMA Show had to offer. I believe that this show is held every Memorial Day weekend and is open on Saturday and Sunday. I arrived a little before the opening time of 10 am and could not believe the amount of people that were waiting in line. The admission for adults was $5.00, I believe Seniors were $3.00. Once inside there were 2 large room with dealers, demonstrations and a kids corner. In the hallway between the two rooms there were some exhibits, a silent auction as well as a food station. I spent about 2 hours looking around and really had a lot of fun. If you are in the Chicagoland area this weekend, stop by and check it out, I will make sure that I hit it next year because it was really nice to see dealers that I have never seen at shows before. Now on with the pictures- A Lot of them.

  11. Back in 2001, I became a member of my local Rock Club, The Syracuse Gem & Mineral Society. From 2001-2010 I was very active in the club. I went to almost every meeting, I organized some field trips, served as Treasurer, gave talks, basically helping out anyway I could. Then in 2010 I had a lot going on in my life and slowly I was less and less involved and it got to the point where I wasn't involved at all. I have been wanted to get back into it. Last night I decided to go to the monthly meeting. It was really nice to see old friends and everyone asking me how I've been and what have I been up to. Before long it hit me that I have been missing out. I had some really good times with these people. I have learned a lot from them. Last night I had made them a promise that I was coming back for good and that I wanted to be a participating member the way I used to be. The reason I have brought this topic up, is because I want to encourage members of this forum who are not already members of their local club, to do so. There is so much to gain by joining. Most members of such clubs are truly a wealth of knowledge. You might learn about collecting sites near you that you won't find out any other way. Clubs usually can get access to places a regular person can't. Plus you could end up making some really good friends. The list goes on and on. There is everything to gain and nothing to lose. Just some food for thought.

  16. Fossil Gems Rocks?

    Fossil gems?
  17. I went to a big gem and mineral show this past Saturday in Lebanon, PA that's only a half hour away from me. Saw LOTS of cool minerals from all over the world. I also saw quite a few fossils for sale too. There were a number of stands that had some nice fossils. There were a couple of stands that had fossils that just didn't look real to me. I'm not a real expert, but some just didn't look right. One guy had some fish in a rock plate, and the rock just didn't look right. All his fish fossils were in a light beige rock. They were excellent looking fish, almost too good if you know what I mean. The prices on his fish were very expensive. Then I saw a guy that had tribs. Lots of tribs. They were all from overseas, mostly Morocco. He had 3 or 4 that were at least a foot and a half long. Some of his fossils didn't quite look right to me. He had quite a variety of really great looking specimens.A lot of them I couldn't even begin to pronounce their official names. :-) And his prices were high. At the end I came across a guy that had ALL Pennsylvania minerals and fossils. All of his stuff was real. I could tell it was real, and his prices were affordable. His stuff was prepped just enough to tell what it was. He had a little bit of everything too. And it was all found in PA. I didn't buy any fossils, just a few polished stones that struck my fancy. I prefer to find my own fossils, I don't buy fossils. I know I've read countless times here on Fossil Forum that you have to watch out for the bogus fossil sellers, and that there are a lot of them out there. I have seen a few of them at this particular show. If something looks too good to be real, it probably isn't.
