  1. Before going back on my field trip today I had a few projects to finish. so last week I tackeld a broken goniatite, the specimen was in 2 parts and and large gaps were between the 2 parts. first I prepped the 2 pieces appart and then glued them back together. Then I filled the gaps with crack filler that I mixed with a bit of black paint. after this dried, I cut of the exces with a sharp knife and smoothed the surface with a a dremel with soft steel whire brush. I then finished it by adding some paint on the restored parts.
  2. What is this ammonoid

    Here’s something I found in Michigan, it’s an ammonoid of some type but I thought it was too wide to be a goniatite, I could be wrong though.
  3. Middle Devonian Goniatite Tornoceras

    From the album Fossildude's Middle Devonian Hamilton Group Fossils

    Tornoceras uniangulare Middle Devonian Windom Shale. Moscow Formation, Hamilton Group. Deep Springs Road Quarry, Lebanon, NY. Found on April 27, 2019. The goniatite is nearly 2 inches in diameter.

  4. Mystery Goniatites from Morocco

    I recently bought some small hematized goniatites from Morocco. They are each under 25mm and fully hematized. The two on the right look to be the same species, while the left specimen is wider in girth and has simpler sutures. They are probably too worn to have distinctive keels, but I've posted a photo of the keels anyway. Any thoughts on identification? I wasn't able to find a good source online for identifying goniatites to family or genus. Thank you for your help!
  5. from Jacksboro, TX

    Found this first one in Jacksboro, TX, Lost Creek Dam. Finis Shale Formation, Pennsylvanian. Would like to identify. Gastrioceras? or maybe Vidrioceras?
  6. Big manticoceras prepp

    Yet again a Manticoceras prepp my last few preppjobs were very succesful, and inspired by what @Ludwigia did on a larger one that I sent him, I tried to prepp one of my larger Manticoceras specimens. I tried a few new tricks to prepp this one, although the living chamber got dammaged, I decided to remove even more of the living chamber to show more of the inner shell with suture lines. It turned out quite well: Manticoceras sp. diameter 16 cm Frasnian ( late devonian ) Chimay area ( Belgium ) as found: ( top left specimen ) removed from the large chunk of matix: ( and glued back together, not everything went acording to plan ) during prepp: the end result:
  7. lucky split during preppjob

    This week I've been prepping a few goniatites that I had lying around. This one didn't look very promising, but what a surprise I got when I tried to remove it from the matrix. a few hits with the chissle and it came out perfectly. I just had to remove the extremities and clean out the center with an airscribe. It turned out to be one of my best specimens Yet an other Manticoceras sp. for display
  8. Manticoceras replica ( painted )

    I'm done with my paintjob om the 2 replica's I recieved. I posted the orthocone earlier. now I'm also done on the Manticoceras. 1st a couple of WIP pictures: The end result With fossil specimen: and a group picture I'm very happy with the end results .
  9. Goniatite?

    This was found in central Texas near some ammonites. The appearance is very different than the others. Does anyone know what this might be?
  10. Middle Devonian Goniatite

    From the album Fossildude's Middle Devonian Hamilton Group Fossils

    Middle Devonian Goniatite, Tornoceras uniangulare. Moscow Formation, Hamilton Group. Deep Springs Road, Lebanon, NY. Collected on 10/14/2018
  11. polishing some of my Goniatites

    I recently got a new job, and to make things even better, my job is at a company who processes and places floors and walls in stone, mostly marble. This opened a few opportunities for me , having access to a huge amount of polishing and cutting tools, so this week I gave it a try: I took 2 of my Goniatites that weren't of top quality, or to hard to prep. and today the helped me to cut the fossils and polish them. The fossils turned out really well here are my first 2 polished Manticoceras sp. from the Frasnian layers of Lompret in Belgium: before polishing them: after cutting and polishing: top goniatite: Bottom Goniatite: both of them: And a question for the moderators: the fossils have been cut and polished today, but were found earlier this year, are they valid entries for FOTM since al the cleaning , cutting and polishing was done now? Thx Kevin
  12. when i look at goniatites and ammonites i see no diffrence. so what IS the diffrence between the two .
  13. Hi all. I traded for this goniatite years ago from a friend, but there was neither a species nor locality info attached. Can anyone make an educated guess as to its ID and locality info? I am guessing Tornoceras or Agathiceras. Thank you.
  14. Pennsylvanian Goniatite from Texas

    I'm having trouble getting the right name for this tiny Goniatite from Jacksboro Texas. Upper Pennsylvanian, Finis Shale Member of the Graham Formation. Small at only 7mm.
  15. Devonian BBQ

    Yesterday I visited my favoriet hunting spot with a few friends. Since the weather forcast was realy good we made sure to bring a portable bbq, meat and drinks. Me and my girlfriend were the first at the location, we made a quick prospect for devonian cephalopods, but there hasn't been a lot of activity in the quarry since our last visit. Once the group was complete we tried our luck in older parts of the quarry, but only a few cephalopods were found. At lunchtime we set up our little bbq and equipment and enjoyed our lunch ( this was fossil hunting in style ) the afternoon we continued our search for fossils. only one extra large goniatite was found by a friend, on the other hand, my girfriend made an exellent discovery, she found a large piece of placoderm that is likely to belong of the same specimen we found last year, it wil soon join the rest of the pieces that are being preped at the museum now. On the way home we made a quick stop for prospection in an other quarry, but appart from a few nice calcite cristals we had no luck here. Still, we had a realy fun day one of the 2 goniatites I found that day: Lunchtime Hexagonaria next to the BBQ: the placoderm fragment found by my girlfriend ( Natalie81 ) The large goniatite of my friend calcite crystals from the next spot:
  16. Goniatite ID

    I found these two when I was a child in Orange County, NY. Does anyone have an ID? From what I can tell, they're Goniatites. I can post more pictures if these aren't clear enough. Thanks! Here are the pictures. For some reason, it's not letting me upload them here. https://imgur.com/a/tRRAfi1#BtnFMPp
  17. orthoceras, goniatite and ? ? ? ?

    Hi everyone. Picked these up yesterday in my garden. The orthoceras orthocone are familiar as is the piece of a goniatite (3rd one here so far) but am wondering what the larger piece is ? It is very smooth, and has the same color, texture and symmetry as the goniatites but is much thinner in proportion. Pictured is both sides and a longitudinal view to hopefully show the symmetry and relatively thin profile. Does it look familiar to any of you ? Thanks.
  18. Hi Folks. Anxious for the rain to quit so I can start digging again. Took a walk through the garden patches and picked these up today after several nice "rinsing" rains". I hope to find more of the bryozoan plates, maybe more larger ones. Maybe you can see more than one variety in the attached pics. More to come .... I'm hoping. Kind regards,
  19. Past weekend we had a "sunny" field trip to my usual hunting spot with the "LITHOS" geology club. We spent the whole day searching the late Devonian shales and nodules for al kind of fossils, brachiopods, crinoids, cephalopods, corals,... We did find the usual pyritised cephalopods ( manticoceras sp, tornoceras sp. and bactrites sp. ) but to me my biggest prize was when I hit a layer with a lot of goniatite anaptichy enjoy the pictures :
  20. Late Devonian fieldtrip

    Last weekend was a fieldtrip to my usual spot the late Devonian in the area of Chimay in Belgium. And of course hunting for the prized cephalopods. Althoug the usual deposits are depleted due to the activity in the quarry, there are now new deposits that can be prospected. A lot of Matagne formation is now exposed, here a lot of small but wel presereved fossils can be found , mainly brachiopods, but in the correct layer and with a little patience a few pyritized cephalopods can be discovered, mainly: Bactrites sp. , multiple kinds of Gephuroceratina ( Manticoceras..) and Tornoceras. The day was cold, rainy and even a few snowflakes, but it was wel worth the trouble. Thx to Anthonie Hellemond (President Belgian Paleontological Association 2018) for the pictures in the field ( and the extra goniatites ) Bactrites: Manticoceras on bottom and a little Tornoceras on top. Oh and in contrast to all the little pyritised fellows there was this one ( also credits to Anthonie for the discovery ) It wil take a while to prep .... Cheers, Manticocerasman
  21. Pyritized goniatite

    Last trip on my search for cephalopods I found a nodule with a pyritised Goniatite. I m used to find them as inner moulds in limestone, so a Pyritized one is a nice change juvenile Manticoceras sp. :
  22. A few of the adult Manticoceras sp. specimens that I found last year in Belgium
  23. Devonian cephalopod plate

    A few months back I managed to get a whole piece of one of the layers that delivered cephalopods. I took the whole rock back home spotting only a few posible cephalopods. After the prep work this is how it looked in the beginning: multiple Goniatites and orthocones on 1 plate: ( Manticoceras, Sphearomanticoceras, Orthoceras ) Late Devonian ( Frasnian ) Chimay area ( Belgium) after a little work:
  24. Weathered crystallised goniatites

    I promised some regular posts from my collection in the weeks to come, so for this week I got two particular goniatites I like to share. Both specimens are weathered, but reveal some beautiful crystalisation of the chambers. Especialy the large one where they even form small calcite geodes. 1st specimen: Manticoceras sp. Frasnian Chimay area ( Belgium ) 2nd specimen: Sphaeromanticoceras sp. Frasnian Chimay area ( Belgium )
