  1. Fish/Skate Teeth ID Help

    Hi. Found some neat stuff in the Lee Creek Matrix today. I believe most of it is fish/skate teeth. If anyone get help with ID it would be much appreciated. Everything is 1 - 2mm. Also, Can somone explain how to get of the dirt on these teeth? I soaked them in hot water and some of it came off. They are so tiny to scrub. What would be safe to soak them in? Thank you for any feedback! I believe these two teeth are Rhynchobatus Teeth #1 #2 #3 I think this is some type of skate tooth but not sure what type #4 absolutely no clue #5 I believe this is a fish tooth
  2. Shell?

    Hi. I have no idea where to even begin with this one. Just found this in the Lee Creek matrix that I have been working through the past month. This one is 1MM. My uneducated guess is..... nevermind I have absolutely no clue! Anyone's guess would be better than mine. Thanks for any feedback. Mark
  3. Fish or Shark Tooth?

    I found these two teeth that are somewhat similiar. I was thinking more of shark tooth than fish but I am not sure. It is just over 1MM. Thanks for any feedback. Tooth#1 Tooth#2
  4. Unique Shark Tooth

    Hi. Found this crazy shaped tooth this morning going through Lee Creek matrix under a micrscope. Never saw anything like it before. Hopefully someone has seen this before. Looks to be slightly over 2MM. Thank you in advance for any feedback.
  5. I have some matrix pieces from ruck’s pit in Florida with some awesome calcite replacements And formations in the shells. I am open to all kinds of offers, including looking for other kinds of Matrix pieces, fossil fish and much more!
  6. Lee Creek Matrix Under A Microscope

    Hi. For Father's Day my kids got me an electic microscope. I have been picking through Lee Creek matrix that I purchased to get me through quarantine. I am really not familiar with smaller teeth so it would be greatly appreciated if anyone can confirm my ID. Enjoy the pics. For all the Dad's, I hope you had a great Father's day! This tooth is 2-3mm. I thought it was small tooth sand tiger but the root seems rather large. I have been all through Elasmo.com and I cannot find a match. The next 2 teeth cusps and the blade remind me of a mackerel but the root does not match a mackerel so I am kind of at a loss.
  7. Hi everyone, Does anyone know where I might buy unprocessed fossil matrix containing Theropod teeth?
  8. Hi everyone, I’m looking to trade for processed hell creek matrix. i have processed navesink fm matrix I’m willing to trade. I’m willing to trade 2 pounds of navesink fm matrix for every 1 pound of hell creek matrix I get.
  9. Hey all. Couple questions about North Sulfur River Tx. Why can I pull one gastropod that will be black (one species) and then within arms reach (another species) will be red? Both semi covered in the red matrix. Has anyone found a large complete red ammonite? I find pieces of large ammonites but always just pieces. I have found a complete Pachydiscus that is around 6 inches in diameter. That is the largest complete one I have found. Thanks for any help. Still learning this stuff.
  10. Acetone soak

    Hi all. I have a piece of matrix that has been consolidated in paraloid. How long do I soak it in acetone to dissolve the consolidation? Thank you in advance.
  11. I recently had a chance to try my hand at a few matrix pieces from Sharktooth Hill. I'm happy with how they came out, although I know I could do a better job next time. Huge shout out to @digit and @ynot for their advice and encouragement. I think the thing I appreciate about matrix pieces like these are that prepping them this way can turn a rather unremarkable tooth into something unique. Anyway, I had fun doing it and I was encouraged to post a "trip report" so here goes... Here's how they looked when I got home. Nice to find out the tooth was intact. WooHoo! I used dental tools (nice set online for <$20) and small paintbrushes to scratch away the matrix. A super soft fluffy brush I found in my wife's makeup kit (shhhh!) was great for removing loosened silt. The matrix looks wet because I was dipping a finger in water and barely touching the matrix to soften it. Not too much though because that Sharktooth Hill matrix can be really soft. When I got more experienced I started using a small paintbrush to apply the water more carefully. Oh nooooooooooo! The tooth fell out. Does that happen to anyone else? I decided that meant the tooth just wanted to be cleaned so I took the opportunity. A quick clean up and a little CA glue and we are back in business. QUESTION: How do the rest of you actually get the tooth clean? There was no way I was going to be able to wash it or use a toothbrush or anything like that. I can tell myself "I like them a little dirty" but can't help but notice that some people get them really nice and clean. Any tips? Esp. with that STH matrix.
  12. I am looking to trade small flat rate box(es) of Ordovician or Mississippian matrix for unsorted Permian Wellington f. (Waurika) or K Firesteel Creek (Hell Creek) matrix. PM me if you are interested. (or any other interesting micro faunal matrix)
  13. Looking for hell creek matrix

    Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone knows where I could get hell creek matrix? If someone knows of a source, please pm me. Preferably macro but either would be good. Please pm me if you know someone. tia.
  14. Hi everybody I found a seller who is wanting to sell this Mosasaur matrix-specimen. Initial photo's look ok, but I would like to get your opinions on it. Can ask for detailed photos if needed. This would be my first 'major' item that I would add to my humble collection, so naturally, I'm cautious. Kind Regards Max (Belgium)
  15. Crustaceans found on beach.

    Hi, I would really appreciate an ID on these crustaceans found 2019 at Miami, Mermaid And Nobby beaches on the Gold Coast, Australia. I've done some basic research and came up with Pliocene era. Thankyou so much!
  16. Does anybody know what this could be?

    Hello, a few weeks ago I found a slab of matrix with many small fossils on it, I noticed this on the corner. Does anybody know what it could be? Sorry I haven't included a scale, its about 1.5cm. Thanks.
  17. Hi Guys My son found this neat little fossil on the beach at Charmouth, Dorset, U.K. We had no clue what it was until we had it looked at by an expert at a fossil roadshow. We are considering removing some of the limestone matrix that hides some of the teeth. Do you think we should attempt to remove some of the matrix or is it too risky. There are several Hybodus shark teeth in what appears to be part of the jaw bone. With what I think is a limestone, type matrix covering some of the fossil. None of the teeth can be seen in full. I have some experience using fine hand held electric carving tools. And it would be very interesting to see more of the teeth. What do you think ? Thank you for looking at this for us. Matt
  18. I’ve noticed what I believe to be a small fish bone stuck to the rostrum on one of my belemnites this one being a Cylindroteuthis puzosiana. Can anyone else see the characteristics of a fish bone?
