  1. Found in northern Ontario Canada in limestone
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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 ...
  5. 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?
  6. Hello people, This and more stuff I found on the hills of Ayios Athanasios, app 10km from the beach. It looks like a shell, or 2 shells, and I think is one of the cases that needs to be cleaned. Any idea how to remove the white stone material without breaking the 'shell' which is brown/orange/yellow colored
  7. Now you see it, now you don't rugged UK Great Oolite landscape on latest SDGS field trip Eomesodon sp tooth ( top tip : look for flies )
  8. Hello, I found this Gastropod while hammering a chunk of Lower Miocene Limestone at a beach in Northern Puerto Rico. In my opinion it's a nice fossil with some crystallization. The Description from the USGS on the limestone formation is: Hard granular calcarenite overlain by alternating beds of chalky marl and rubbly limestone Just wondering if any one could help me ID it. Thank you!
  9. I found this in a gorge near a Wass go Lake New York. The wing-like shape is composed of quartz - we find lots of horn coral in this area so wasn't sure if this could also be an oblique section through some type of coral.
  10. Hello, I found this piece today while exploring the beach in Northern Puerto Rico, in Miocene Limestone. Found some coral fossils and lots of molluscs shells. I believe it is a bone, it is very dense and heavy and seems to be fossilized but I am no expert. Please help me ID this piece Thank you! more pictures in next post.
  11. Hello, want to share a picture of some of my finds from my first official fossil hunting trip. We explored a the gravel bed of a river which I knew had formed caverns up the stream in the limestone formations. Tertiary Although reaching the actual limestone formations is (probably) impossible, since it's in the middle of the rain forest, as soon as we got there we saw limestone pieces the river had carried down. We started looking and found some really neat ones (picture), in my opinion Top left is a trace fossil, top right is a bivalve with both pieces on! with lots of sediment in the middle. I'm pretty excited to do some more exploring when I get the time! I haven't cleaned them yet, i want to take some of the excess sediment off the fossil but I have to do some more researcher to figure out the best way to do so.
  12. Picture I took while hunting, left the fossil because I did not have the right tools. Limestone - Middle Tertiary through Cretaceous also wanted to share a picture of an eerie rock formation, looks just like the profile of a person really caught my eye thanks for your help!
  13. My boyfriend works in northern Ontario (Canada) at a limestone rock quarry and found this while chipping a piece of rock. I am not sure if this is even a legitimite fossil and if so what kind it is and would love some feedback!
  14. Hey everyone, I've just got back from collecting a ton(literally) of bone valley matrix. The fossils in this matrix will be really colorful and not your typical peace river black. I'm open for anything! You guys don't even have to tell me what your sending, I'll pack a small/medium/large flat rate box(your choice) and ship it out to you. I've already spotted a couple of small megs on the outside of these chunks. Any takers?
  15. 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?
  16. Hello I wasn't sure if I should post this in minerals instead, but let's check it out here. Found in Paramali, turtle beach, east of akrotiri area, when facing north. It is obvious that I found the two pieces of a cracked single. The 'eye' shape in 1b, matches the location of the whiter spots inside. Also, the whites inside, are surrounded by small parallel lines. on the photo, they are more visible on the left side, but they exist on both. Something else you can see, is that the 2 external sides are pretty much negative of each other, regarding coloring.
  17. This one might be a little hard but I think I found a seed shrimp (Ostracoda) in Limestone formations from middle Tertiary - crustaceous in northen Puerto Rico (sorry I don't know specifics yet) Here are the pictures. I came along some images online that show the same shape as the piece in question. Size ~ 3mm - 3.5mm Thanks for any help!
  18. Hope someone can identify these 2 fossil corals found in limestone in northeast missouri. Thanks!
  19. Hello, I am new to the forum and new to fossil collecting. Last week I was exploring Limestone deposits in northern Puerto Rico. I found some fossils imbedded into the limestone but then I found this piece. From what I understand, this is a fossil bone because of its porous nature. Could anyone tell me what I collected? Thank you for any help! I plan on doing much more research and exploring in the next weeks. Thank you, Miguel
  20. Ok it looks like a prety geological creation, but then there is this (photo 3) is it just a shell mold, or could it be some breathing organ thing, coz it is placed lower. And this (photo 4) that is on the highest of the 3 peaks that are formed and sort of reminds me of a mouth with teeth. Found near akrotiri, ayios ermoyenis - curium area cliffs. Its 25cm long and the center 17cm high, it looks like hmm some sort of triple fin, or fish or exploding angry eel ... something that belongs to the sea anyway some more photos next post
  21. This is another picture with a ruler so you can tell the size of the sponge that I posted the other day. Perhaps it will help in identifying it.. Thank you.
  22. Found this fossil in northeast Missouri. It is a slab of limestone. Hope the other things found in the limestone will help identify it.Any ideas of what it is?
  23. anything here? size 5cm, material smooth limestone like, at 1st glance resembles a leaf, but it is too thick for that. also not sure if its two sides are related, but it feels like two sides of something opened.
  24. Hello, from Armenohori area, near Moni, 5km from sea, usual chalk, chert, white looking earth. Photos of side and back as well. its like a tile.
  25. So, I've got this early Maastrichtean rudist, and I'm looking for a good way to get it in a presentable shape, preferably without having to use expensive equipment. The matrix is limestone, though not soft enough to be simply peeled away with a brush. I'm not sure whether using vinegar would be a smart idea - I have a feeling that it would damage the fossil. Also, what would be the best way to reattach the two separate parts together? I thank anyone giving input in advance.
