  1. Mollusk fossil identification

    Hello. A friend of mine showed me this fossil. He received it as a gift, so he doesn't know its origin. It seems to me to be an ammonite. Could you help me identify the species and its approximate age? Thank you.
  2. Hello everyone! These fossils were found in the Southern Gulf Islands of Western Canada. I am currently working a museum that has been mostly volunteer-run since the 1970s, so a lot of our records have gaps. These two fossils are a part of our collection, but we don't have much information on them. Do you recognize either of these two fossils? Thank you so much! Justine
  3. ID help needed...please

    I found this chunky fossil this morning at Myrtle Beach. I would love to think its mammal associated, but I'm not sure it's not just a mollusk fossil. I may learn more by cleaning the crusty ocean stuff off.. I don't think it's a cast based on the grain in the broken cross section. Any help would be appreciated.
  4. Mollusk identification

    These mollusk fossils are of a friend o mine, who got it from a stonework supplier. He says that it comes from Arizona, and that is all that he knows about it. Can you help me to identify the species, and the aproximate age? Tank you
  5. ID help on gastropod fossil

    I currently have this fossil temporarily written down as Bembexia suclomurginata based off some pictures i’ve seen but i need more clarification. I’m not sure where it was found, the seller never clarified the location.
  6. Mollusk ID Requested

    All, I found this fossil in a shale deposit of Pennsylvanian age in Northeastern Oklahoma. The shale is probably Chanute formation and contains other marine fossils. I would appreciate any help with ID. Best wishes.
  7. Folks, I found this fossil mollusk from a shale deposit in Northeastern Oklahoma. The shale is of Pennsylvanian age (probably Chanute formation), and contains other marine fossils. I would appreciate any help with ID. Best wishes.
  8. Found in Ploughed field

    Found in ploughed field. In sand stone. Easily smashed off. Other shells pictured in stone. Really unsure what it is as live the furthest away from sea as anywhere can in UK....
  9. Origin unknown; found in box of junk at yard sale. Guessing it is some type of clam from regular ridges on outer part of piece; inside piece has blackish "softer smoother" piece than outer hard piece. Has striations like gills or hair? Is soft tissue normally found in fossils? Kind of thought they would be the first thing to dissolve when something dies; if so what is it?
  10. Capitola Fossil ID

    Recently stumbled across this, possible, fossil in Capitola Beach, CA. I found an assortment of fossilized shells but was unsure of this find. Anyways, I’m new to fossil hunting and don’t have an exceeding amount of experience, so any knowledge regarding what this could possibly be would be helpful. Thanks!
  11. Mollusk Fossil

    Any input would be greatly appreciated
  12. Just a rock, or a fossil bivalve?

    Happy new year. This is my first attempt at a post, so try and go easy. I respect the depth and breadth of knowledge in this forum. Thanks for yours in advance. Unfortunately I do not have a proper provenance for this specimen. This peice was purchased at auction with a rock lot, silified chalcedony (agate), and I was surprised at the symmetry and shape. My amateur mind brought me to fossil bivalve. Another specimen from the same lot shows this exact shape and general size, so here I am. What are your thoughts? Thanks again. 125mm x 115mm x 60mm 1216g or 2lb 10oz
  13. Plant vs Molusk (or neither!)

    Found this rock in Charmouth beach (south west coast of England) a few months ago. The period is early Jurassic and is generally dated to ~190m years ago. I gave it a friend and have got into a debate as to whether it is a fossilised plant or part of a mollusk. Can anyone help resolve this argument/confirm that I am right?! Thanks, J
  14. Another unidentified specimen from central Lincoln county Missouri. Found today while walking Sugar Creek.
  15. Hello all. I made an account to share my first find of a fossil in Nassau County, 11520
  16. Oyster

  17. 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)
  18. Found these at Point A Dam today!! Can anyone ID?
  19. 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?"
  20. 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). .
  21. 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
  22. Mollusk Molds

    From the album Calvert Cliffs

    Molds from the Choptank Formation. Member unknown. Virginia Miocene
  23. 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.
  24. 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?
  25. Mollusk Species

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