  1. What is this?

    I am a contractor and found this in 2004 in Austin, TX on an empty house lot. Probably boring to yall but was just curious as to what it was. I'm thinking a snail but would like to know the real name of it as I have no knowledge about this kind of thing. Currently being used as a paper weight. The dimensions are 168mm wide 127mm deep 99mm tall. 2.63 kg Thank you for your help! Mark
  2. A syringopora (coral)?

    Dear forum members, Here are some items that I found on an island close to Vodice, Croatia, Europe. The location was ca. 30 meters from the adriatic sea at a hight of ca. 8 meters above sea level. The items were at the bottom of a building site for a house. They were about 2 meters below ground level, i.e. 6 meters above sea level. Here are two pictures of an item which looks a bit like a coral. The closest match I found on the internet was the picture depicted on the right hand side of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syringopora There was an abundance of items like this around the location. This item has a diameter of ca. 20 cm and a height of ca. 9 cm. The mineral seems to be quartz (an uneducated guess). To show the mineral in a better way, here are pictures of two other items I found at that site. The one on the left has a length of ca. 10 cm (please ignore the scallop shell), the one on the left more like 7 cm. The items are not here with me at the moment, so it would take some effort to get more photos if requested by you. But it would be manageable. Could you please help to ID this item?
  3. Limpet looking fossil

    Hello everyone, requesting help with a fossil ID. New member and very new to fossils, daughter has shown lots of interest in fossils and wants to be a paleontologist for about a year. I try and continue to encourage it and we go to different creek beds here in Kentucky along the Tennessee boarder. We typically find lots of brachiopods but nothing like these. I think it looks like limpets, but I can’t find anything similar to it online. The University of Kentucky website had some similar sketches of horn coral, but I am not sure. Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Info: small, about the size of a quarter found on the banks a larger sized stream in southern Kentucky usually find lots of brachiopods in the area

  10. petrified finger

    found in meridian mississippi this rock has every characteristic of a finger even what appears to be veins and finger prints
  11. I found this bone today in a stream bed known to be cretaceous. At first I thought it was modern, but it felt too heavy to just be bone, so I took it home. I bleached it for a couple of hours to make it safe to touch because I couldn't imagine it wasn't modern. Then I cleaned it with dish soap and a toothbrush. It rings when tapped against a counter or when tapped with a rock. No dull thud. We held a butane lighter to it for several seconds. It made a black scorch mark, but there was no odor, so I think the collagen is gone. Does it look old to you? Any ideas about what it might be? Sorry about the picture quality. I might be able to do better in daylight tomorrow.
  12. Hi, I found this amongst rocks near the water at Lyme Regis beach in 2004. I assumed icthyosaurus but the curvature seems extreme for one. So if anyone can shed light on what this is, would be most appreciated as it's my most precious and largest creature find. Thanks in advance.

  16. A Few More Jordan Finds

    I found this in one of the plowed fields here in Garfield county Mountana. I do not know what species it is. The ranch owner has hundreds of them and a lot of them are perfect. I have also found a lot of gastropods. There is a large cliff a couple of hundred feet behind my house and it is packed with them. There are about six layers that contain shells. The layers vary in thickness from a few inches to about six feet. Most of the layers are fine sand and one that is mixed with hard chunks of sandstone. The last photo is a part of the layer with the chunks in it. I do not know what formation any of these are from. Any help would be great!
