  1. Another unidentified specimen from central Lincoln county Missouri. Found today while walking Sugar Creek.
  2. Hello all. I made an account to share my first find of a fossil in Nassau County, 11520
  3. Oyster

  4. So, I have two more fossils (I think), that I could really use help with.... Both found in same location(s) and formation(s) as my prior posts. The first, looks like the impression of a mollusk/shell to me (about 3/4' in diameter) ??? The second, I cant even begin to guess as I would probably be wrong anyway. lol Its corkscrew in shape and about 3/4' long. It left a mirrored impression of itself on the opposing rock. Any thoughts???!!! Thanks in advance. :0)
  5. Found these at Point A Dam today!! Can anyone ID?
  6. Miocene Mystery Shell

    Okay, here's a weird one for any shell people out there. Found this on the Potomac's beach where the cliffs have Eastover, St Mary's and Choptank FM exposures. At first, it was a blob of clay with what looked like a hinge showing at one end. I chalked it up to oyster or mussel. Brough it home, cleaned it up most of the way and said, "What the heck?" The texture is really strange. It's convex where I would expect it to be concave. It's lumpy, but not heavily sculptured. I took it to some people who were more familiar with the spot and/or knew something about vertebrates, in case my mollusk assessment was totally off. No, looks like invertebrate of some kind, they said. I've identified and catalogued over 70- species from the cliffs, pouring over the same references for countless hours. There are a few approximately the right shape, given how broken it is, and have similar parallel growth lines, but the texture and lumps???? And that weird ridge 1/2 of the length from the beak? Multiple shells overlapping? Again I say, "What the heck?"
  7. Hi. Here are some shells from our desert property. Also some burrows/worm tubes I think? There's a tiny shell inside one of the holes (pictured). .
  8. Psst... Jon Landis’ Staff, from “Michael Jackson’s Thriller Video”, want the mask back STAT! Unlike any mollusk shell I have ever seen... which doesn’t mean a whole lot! Thank you! Karen
  9. Mollusk Molds

    From the album Calvert Cliffs

    Molds from the Choptank Formation. Member unknown. Virginia Miocene
  10. I found these not too long ago in the North Sulphur River. I want to prep them out. They’re a tough prep, because I want to reveal and preserve the nacre. As I prep though I end up damaging the delicate layer. Is there something I can coat it with to preserve the nacreous layer as I continue to work with it? Some are Inoceramus clams. The long slender ones I have no idea what they are. My best guess is that they are some type of rudist. I don’t think they are cepholopods because I can’t see and sutures or septa. Some appear to be quite cylindrical. I’ve collected many baculites fossils from the area and these don’t remotely resemble baculites. If someone has an ID great, but my main question is in regards to preservation of nacre. Any help would be appreciated.
  11. Found this ages ago just lying alongside the road in Illinois... I think it was Illinois... heh... structure looks similar to a calamites horsetail IMO, but the symmetrical succession of the parts is curious. Any ideas?
  12. Mollusk Species

    A pretty neat little fossil from the coast of Lake Huron, Michigan. Two individuals, one on each side. Possibly Mesozoic in age.
  13. Belemnite?

    This is a very recent find from the Cahaba River Valley. One person on the Facebook page identified this as a belemnite. Is this the general consensus? To my knowledge I have never seen one. I have a regular paper clip for size reference.
  14. Graveyard fossil side a.jpg

  16. Haida Gwaii trip

    I was holidaying on Haida Gwaii (previously known as Queen Charlotte Islands) and had an afternoon on a beach near Tlell. We were actually keeping our eyes peeled for agates but I did come up with one interesting nugget. Maybe somebody knows what this might be?
  17. Hello, I recently found what I believe is a mollusk fossil in a western washington river. Is it possibly a freshwater mollusk fossil (as I found it in a river that currently has freshwater mussels that live there)? You can see size comparison to my average womens sized hands
  18. Weird fossil from the Ozarks. What is it?

    During a trip in the Ozarks mountains, I found some fossils. There were lots of crinoid fossils, as well as some brachiopods. However, a few fossils seemed odd to me. Does anyone know what these are? Are they fossils or just crystal formations?
  19. I figured it was a mollusk, but my knowledge of such is very limited. I have made a shot in the dark that it is Gryphea? But I am unsure if it would even fit the time period (Miocene) or the location of the Astoria Formation in Oregon. Please put any guesses you may have even if they seem totally wrong. By the way Its glossy texture is due to a coating i put on it due to its tendency to flake off pieces, not the fossils look.
  20. FOSSIL ID

    I have a few fossils that I've unearthed over the years and although I majored at Oklahoma University in Geology, I've forgotten the ID's of these pieces. I know I should have them at the tip of my tongue, but for the life of me I can't identify these few pieces. I've included a wrist watch for scale (should have used a mm gauge I know). Any help will be greatly appreciated.
  21. small Ammonite cast

    This came from a gravel bed in Travis county with a large bluish shale formation nearby. Any info on the material of the rock would be appreciated as well. Thanks!
