  1. Help Id'ing Crawfordsville Crinoid

    Hello, I recently unpacked from an old collection this crinoid specimen from Crawfordsville Indiana. I would appreciate any help identifying species. The slab measures 13 x 14 cm, the detail is 7 x 6 cm. Thank you!
  2. until
    Show Flier Show times (Eastern Time Zone): Friday = 10am-5pm Saturday = 10am-5pm Sunday = 12am-4pm Hope to see some TFF folks there!
  3. The KYANA Geological Society is hosting their annual mineral, gem, and fossil show next weekend (Nov. 22-24). I attended last year and it is a small, but fun event. I’m not sure which day I will be there, but I plan to take the family. Just passing along the information in case anyone is in the Louisville area and would like to attend. If you can’t make it, don’t worry, I will come back with a full trip report. http://www.kyanageo.org/showflier.htm
  4. Tristate Trilobite Hunt

    Hi all, This week I'm heading to the tristate area (Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky) for a trilobite hunting trip. It's unusual for me insofar as it's being run by my university. Usually I do my own recon, but since I don't really know where I'll be going (I assume we'll be visiting fairly well known localities), I was wondering if ya'll could help me out. I'm trying to figure which sites are famous in the area, and which layers to look in at those sites etc. I'd appreciate any info or advice! I'll be sure to return the favor by posting a full trip report when I get back.
  5. Looks reptilian to me

    1.5” X 1.0” tapers to blunt point. Structures up close with microscope are fantastic. the fractals And repetition scream complex multi cell but I have been duped many times by rock before. I don’t see how this couldn’t be flesh fossilized but hey. Found in southern Indiana, but in commercial river rock.
  6. Egg or fake

    Found in river rock southern Indiana. Fossil or stone?
  7. Indiana Ordovician Bivalve ID

    Over the weekend I found this bivalve while collecting at the St. Leon, Indiana roadcut. I posted it in the Hunting Trip section, but received no ID on this piece, so I figured that I would put it here to see if some Member could give me an ID. I have never found one like this before nor can I find a similar one while checking various web pages. Thanks
  8. encrusted stone

    I plucked this from Cherry Creek in Winona Lake, IN, and am wondering what is encrusting the stone. Thx!
  9. My son found several, hopefully, fossils in Sugar Creek in Turkey Run park in Indiana. He would like to know if they actually are fossils and of what. We are pretty sure the first one is a tooth. But have no clue about the other ones. Tree bark? Some sort of plant? Thank you for any help.
  10. Fossil or cool rock?

    Is this a fossil?
  11. Is this a brachiopod?

    I was wondering if this is a brachiopod. Thx!
  12. Hello. These two specimens were discovered in Southern Indiana in a wooded area with a nearby spring. A tentative ID was given as a Rugosa (horn) coral but someone else thought it could be petrified wood. If it is a horn coral then are these two pieces from a mid-section hence whey the conical property is not apparent? I appreciate any and all feedback.
  13. Concretion associated with limestone

    Hi, I found this concretion near a Bloomington construction site associated with a pile of limestone rip-rap. It was already broken and I didn't find any other pieces in the area. It looks like it might contain a fossil. What do others think and how should I proceed with it?
  14. Quartz fossil

    Hi, I found some interesting rocks in some gravel near downtown Indianapolis. Photo with the ruler is in inches, sorry to the rest of the world. Thanks in advance!
  15. Rock formation or fossil?

    This is a large rock formation I found in forested area near my cabin in Perry County Indiana about 15 miles from the Ohio River. It has what seems like steel plates on the surface of some of the rock formation, which measures about 10 feet by 7 feet and about 3 to 4 feet high. There is a white-ish crystalized substance on the surface of some of the plates which seems very hard, not lichen-like or easily scratched off the surface. It seemed unusual to me, so I cleaned it off and dug it out a bit to reveal more of the surface. Hoping someone might have an idea what this is. I am a new member and very inexperienced in fossil and geology identification. Thanks for any input.
  16. Indiana roadcut legality

    I'm looking to visit a few road cuts in Indiana this month, including St. Leon and a few around Bloomington. I've read differing accounts here about the legality of collecting on roadcuts in Indiana. Would anyone be able to clear it up?
  17. Presumably, having been tumbled along the robustness of the Knob Creek's quartz bearing country rock of the Hoosier National Forest in the Bartlettsville (North Lawrence Co.) IN area, the tip of the Crown (Calyx) of this large Crinoid appears to have been sheered off at some point to give the observer a view (in crossection) of the inside of calyx which reveals absolutely nothing but Silica replacement of all internal parts. This sample is of the Harrodsburg Formation in the Sanders Group, Lower Middle Mississippian Time.
  18. Fossilized Bone?

    I found both of these bones within a foot of each other poking out of the surface of a creek beside my house (I live in North West Indiana). They both seem to pass the burn test and tap test, although this is my first time finding potentially ancient bone, so I'm not certain that they are fossilized. Could anyone more experienced confirm that these are fossilized? Or recommend any other tests?
  19. I found this in southern Indiana. It is from the Ordovician period (Dillsboro formation). I initially grabbed this for the mollusk located in the bottom right corner (it is a mollusk, right?), but am more curious about the thing jutting out of the left. Is this just a concretion? Any help would be appreciated.
  20. Marine fossil ID, Southern Indiana

    I took a trip to Southern Indiana to do some fossil hunting (they are an elusive creature). I am now just cleaning some of them up and saw this one and it piqued my curiosity. It is from the Ordovician period (Dillsboro formation). Can anyone help me out? Sorry for the use of a quarter, it was all I had. Thank you.
  21. Marine invertebrates maybe?

    Hello everyone! I am back to ask for opinions again on an unusual find in north eastern indiana. It has a few different things going on and i will do my best to take decent pictures for you to see. First let me say the rock in its entirety is around 3 inch (76 mm) in length. 1 inch (25 mm) tall and 2.5 inches (63 mm) wide. The "teeth" are roughly 1/4 inch wide.
  22. Fossil ID help

    I found this yesterday in the Wabash river in northeast Indiana. Its about 2.5" x3" Sort of resembles a mammoth tooth but it may just be my imagination. Thanks in advance, -Troy
  23. Hoping this is from a trilobite?

    After taking @caldigger's advice I went back to this gravel dump in Indianapolis. I found a few more pieces of Horn Coral, but this guy was a mystery. I'm hoping its part of a trilobite and not coprolite. Thanks in advance!
  24. found in sone limestone gravel

    I found this in some gravel they had poured to backfill a slope near the white river. My amateur guess is horn coral but I was hoping for a more educated opinion. Thanks Front side back side
  25. Hi all! Now that I'm finally getting around to organizing my fossils into cabinets, I'm looking to get a bit more information on some of them. As I'm currently finishing up the Ordovician shelves of my cabinets, I was hoping to get some help with identifying brachiopods from the St. Leon roadcut in Indiana that I acquired through winning some past auctions benefiting the forum. Photo #1: Mainly strophomenids, I think - does anyone have a more precise ID? Photo #2: Dalmanellids perhaps? Any specific IDs out there? Photo #3: These are really tiny and adorable More to come...
