    The other day I saw a term used that i forgot to write down and can't find again. HINTS: 1. It described "wishfull" seeing i.e. seeing something (a fossil) in a rock that wasn't there but was suggested by cracks, lines, or structures in the rock. 2. it started with p----- 3. It was in the ID section, as I recall. Any help would be appreciated.

  14. Is This New York Trilobite Id'able?

    Hello, this trilobite was found in rock from somewhere upstate new york. It was an interesting shape different from what I have found before but it is very worn to tell exactly what it is to my knowledge, is it to broken up to id? If not I'll let the new york trilobite experts here take this one. The trilo measures a little over an inch.
  15. So today Ive went down to the bay that I was planning to find fossils in for awhile, only to come back empty handed (I couldnt reach any of the shale quarries and just decided that its layers are too flat to house fossils anyways). Being a Palos Verdean, There are small pockets of quarries which are generaly unprotected by preserves (usually alongside roads, sometimes beaches). Palos Verdes has a rich history of Miocene-Quarternary fossils, but much of the fossiliferous zones are protected by preserves. Because I cant really go far just to find fossils, I can only hunt in the small pockets I can find. Ive studied some geological maps and do know where the according-to-theory fossiliferous shale are, I just dont know how exactly to find fossils without destroying the place and getting under a legal flat. Are there any tips and tricks for this kind of fossiling?
  16. Unknown Small NJ Cretaceous Bone?

    I found this piece a long time ago in a cretaceous site in New Jersey and haven't really been able to figure out what this is since. I'm not sure if its fish, marine reptile, dinosaur, or etc. Just noticed it browsing through my collection and figured this would be the best place to get help, any help appreciated to get a label on this, thank you.
  17. Tooth ID request

    Found this in N Sulphuri River. Front and back photos; second photo of back side is actual size (about an inch long). Any ideas?
  18. So I have this small block of Green River matrix that has fish material. When I got it, A part has been prepped, exposing most of it, but then I checked the corners, saw more covered material, and realized that it could be prepped even further. The problem is, I don't have any prepping tools because I've never prepped a fossil before But maybe is there any household tools that could efficiently prep Green River matrix? I just need to remove one tiny layer.

  24. Strange Rock Patterns

    So a family member of mine found a large bolder in an area that has been known for having some fossils of fish and tracks. It doesn't look like anything but the patterns are odd enough where I can't determine if they are fossils or just mineral marks. Any help is appreciated!
