  1. Help with identifying

    Hoping someone can identify what I found. Found in Smyrna Tennessee July 31 2017. Size is 2" x 2" x 3/8" thick Thanks
  2. a huge something?

    Hello, I found this at Kalavasos formations (late Miocene 5-10 million years) (even though not so known, pygmy elephants,hippos and other mammals were found at this area as well) I don't know what to make of it.. there is a couple of holes at its bottom side.. I am being tempted to crack it open, if it opens, but I don't know how. p.s. it is 30cm diameter, circular shaped with a max height of 12cm in the center. Thanks
  3. small ammonite?

    Its 3mm diameter, best picture I could get. It looks like an ammonite to me, found on uncharted formation possible miocene, near limassol.
  4. unknown from franklin mountains.

    at first glance it seemed molluscan but now that i've brushed dirt away it appears to be some form of coral. structure is hard to place. found in area where i've also encountered tabulate and rugosa
  5. Hey guys, I'm kinda new in fossil hunting, but even from my limited experience I like it a lot. Does any one know of any spots in NE Kansas that are worth visiting? I'll probably visit a couple road cut outs and some spots near Tuttle Creek this weekend and post my findings, if anyone would be interested.
  6. Fossils found in South texas

    I found these in South texas in Bulverde. They were not all in the same place. I have no clue what they are so any help would be appreciated.
  7. I accidentally broke part of this fossil when I dropped the rock it was in. It measures about 8 inches with a 2 inch diameter. No clue what it might have belonged to. This was also found on the Dry Frio River.
  8. Fossil ID brachiopod

    Hi all, I am hoping to know what type of brachiopod this is below. It is found in Lower Carboniferous limestone in the NW of Ireland. The fossil appears to have possibly short ridges on the costae? This is the best example I could find. Thanks
  9. Trace fossil ID

    Hi all, I am hoping to identify a trace fossil found in the NW of Ireland, Lower Carboniferous limestone. The trace is 24cm in length in view, 2cm in width, and on across bedding plane surface. Any information would be great thanks.
  10. tooth in coral?

    My family and I usually visit the Frio River in Leakey, Tx every summer. A few years ago we were all set to go swimming but upon arriving we saw that the part of the river we usually frequent had dried up. I decided to make the best of it and explored the dried river bed looking for anything interesting when this isolated chunk of rock caught my eye. I picked it up off the ground, took it home with me, put it in a drawer and forgot about it. A few months ago I found it while doing some cleaning and realized it had to be something more than just an oddly shaped rock. I cleaned it with water and a toothbrush after reading online that that's a simple way to clean fossils. A friend of mine with limited knowledge of fossils suspected it was some kind of fossilized coral or sponge. What I originally thought was matrix does look a lot like syringopora, but I can't find pictures of any prehistoric coral fossils that match the appearance of that hot dog in the center! I saw a sperm whale tooth on this forum that looks similar but I'm not sure if what I found feels like a tooth. It feels way too smooth to me. I love fossils and I own some shark teeth, coprolite, and a little trilobite, but those were all bought. If whatever this is turns out to be something, then it would be the first fossil I've ever acutally found myself. I'm still really new to this so please forgive me if I am asking silly questions or submitting this incorrectly. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
  11. Carboniferous fun in SW VA

    Fruits of "me time" in road cuts in Russell and Wise counties in southwest Virginia 3/25/17.
  12. Hello. I found this amongst a bunch of Devonian/Mississippian age limestone. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the rock is fossiliferous limestone. These two very odd shapes, one black, one white, I thought could perhaps be the gill structures of something like a Placoderm, Acanthodian, or Ostracoderm. I know it's kind of a tough ID. Any input is appreciated. Thanks.
  13. Hello there friends, This looks and feels like something to me. The brown material inside is flint, the white is limestone. found on Moni beach any thoughts?
  14. Is it small dinosaur?

    Hei, I found the stone from Gulf of Finland where are seen skeleton of small animal. It can be late Cambrian or early Ordovician. Here you can see movie at youtube. - https://youtu.be/UllqeIadzPc What do you think, what could it be?
  15. Found this while moving stones

    I found this stone while moving some garden rocks and it had something that called my attention. I couldn't figure out what it is. I could t find a ruler or anything so I put a golf ball for size comparison What do you think? Unknown fossil maybe ? LINK Let me know if you can see them.
  16. Petoskey too hard?

    HI there, I recently found a Petoskey Stone among others on the same tiny (12 foot) beach in Mid/Upper Michigan, as I have for years in the same location. Only...this one's different. I can't seem to polish it down entirely by hand OR with a dremel. It has a lot of beveled structure still compared to others I've seen, and it just feels HARD. There also seem to be tiny crystal bits in some places. Can Pestoskey Stones (limestone as I understand it) harden into Travertine or Marble and retain their distinct pattern and shape?
  17. Small conical fossil ID help

    Hello found this in northern Puerto Rico in middle to late oligocene limestone. Measures about 1 cm any ideas on what it is? Thank you!
  18. Fossilzed echinoderm spine?

    Hello, found this in northern Puerto Rico - middle to late oligocene limestone. Am I correct on the ID? thank you
  19. Coral, Burrow or something else?

    Hello, found this in a river in northern Puerto Rico in the Lares Formation - middle to upper Oligocene
  20. Fossil in need of ID

    I found this somewhere near Hancock, MD I think. It was many moons ago, before I knew much about fossils so I don't remember where I found it exactly. It's limestone and I noticed some strange looking things, possibly fossils. Tell me what you guys think, I'd guess Ordovician simply because it seems to contain limestone in that area.
  21. Found in northern Ontario Canada in limestone
  22. what might this be

    Hello, found this in a cut limestone floor plate - I wonder what this might be. I am not a geology expert, I'm a medical researcher. The image is scanned, 10 cm real size. Regards, Alar Aints
  23. teredinidae burrow casts?

    Found these fossil hunting on a small beach in northern puerto rico - lower miocene limestone. are these shipworm fossils? I found the rock with the hole on the same beach. Second picture is the inside of the biggest piece
  24. Brachiopod maybe?

    Hello, another one from Ayios Athanasios hills, 5km from shore, this one I already prepped, it's a bit confusing, at some point there seems to be a shell over a shell, when I tried to prep the inside, there were white and red parts, also a small round shell part, so I stopped till I get your advice. Is it half a brachiopod again or something else? It is white/pearly with light shades of grey as opposed to which was more brown/orange and bigger Here are the photos the size is 38mm from one far side to the other, yet the one side is slightly broken so ...
  25. a pretty bivalvia

    ok location: Ayios athanasios hills, limassol, 8km from shore. i know that Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Mollusca Class: Bivalvia Order: Pterioida Family: Pectinidae ?? Genus: ?Species: ? But I am also wondering, if it's ok that I will be cleaning the top with a needle, and if I should remove also that bottom coquina matrix? (will i find a pearl hehehe) And can those arc encrusted epibiots also be removed without cracking the shell?
