  1. Looking to try a new twist to the blind trade. I propose a blind trade for one item only. It can be a fossil or a mineral. Is anybody out there interested? I only ask no junk/ scraps. One decent item for another.
  2. ID required for fossilized mineral (possibly amber)

    This fossil is not organic unlike my other fossils. But I believe it to be a Amber piece. Some people in my other posts thought it might be some other material, so what do you think? Since I firmly believe that this is Amber.
  3. Pseudofossil?

    Any ideas? It is made of a black non-magnetic iron mineral. I was thinking a cast of a septarian nodule........
  4. Coprolite or stalagmite?

    I need help identifying this item. Not sure exactly what it is. A man from Texas told me it was the finest Coprolite he had seen in 30 years. I would like to have some more opinions.
  5. Mineral or fossil?

    I found this out at Mineral Wells. I think it is a mineralization pattern, but I wanted to see if anyone else had any insight or could confirm that to be the case. Most everything I have found has been crinoids or sea shell in nature. If it is fossil it doesn't really match with anything else I have found there. The other sides are just yellow to cream colored stone.

  18. Plant or mineral

    I found this walking, stuck in a dirt road right next to the Birch River in Nicholas County West Virginia. Just curious what others think it could be. I thought maybe it was just a strange mineral deposit. Sorry about the wonky tags for this post. This requirement is way beyond my knowledge in the area of fossils - which is nothing.

    Very metal looking rock in a unique shape
  20. unusual shaped agates almost like vertebrate

    so in the deserts of new mexico these were found. not anything I have ever seen here and was really curious what they are. they are agate based but shaped like vertebrate so I'm lost. any help would be greatly appreciated
  21. Hi all just for fun I was wondering has anyone on this site got a bucket list of rare specimens they love to have in their collector cabinets of curiosities. Also have you made any of those dreams come true by acquiring them. I think it would be great to know what wonderful, rare and fascinating objects inspire a collector's imagination. Some items off my bucket list too start with. 1. Stegosaurus Dorsal Plate, the most iconic part of this Jurassic dinosaur (need). 2.Excavated animal remains or bug from La Brea tar pits (need). 3. Dimetrodon fossil . ( got a beautiful claw). 4.Libyan desert glass (c.28,500,000 years old) (need) 5. Lunar rock (need... but if anyone has any spare, I will pay the postage LOL ) just the start of a list

  23. help with ID please

    hi all, a member of my local fossil club is wondering if the specimen he found in the bottom of a dam in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, might be a fossil, or just a mineral. The specimen is about 3 inches round. Sorry, but the 2 photos i have are only of a standard quality. cheers, kevin
  24. any help with ID appreciated

    any help towards what this item might be would be helpfull, i realise the photos are not that clear, but i am helping a member of our local fossil group to find out anything about this object, whether it be mineral or fossil etc. It was found near Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina, cheers, kevin
  25. Hi guys, I am new here so I hope I am doing this right, haha. I have a trilobite I was hoping to get cleaned up. It is enrolled with just a bit of limestone leftover on it. I was told that vinegar could be used to clean it off but I am worried it might damage the fossil. The visible eye has pretty good detail, so I want to make sure I don't do anything that would damage that in particular. I just want to know if it will be okay to use vinegar, or if anyone has tips for other cleaning methods? I have a few brachiopods to practice cleaning with before I try the trilobite. Each are about an inch long. Here is a pic of the trilobite with two of the brachiopods: Also, I was asked to identify some rocks&minerals by someone and was unable to identify one of the minerals. It had a hardness of at least 5.5 and had a sub-metallic luster I believe. I was just curious if anyone knew what they were and was hoping to be able to identify them for her. I have them pictured here: I forgot glass had hardness of 5.5 and not 7, so I fixed that. Thanks in advance, and it's nice to meet you guys!
