  1. Hello, I am helping a friend identify this fossilized vertebrae that she found on the SE NC on the beach. It is heavy and cold to the touch it feels like stone to me.
  2. Here's my issue, I work in a science museum and our former director wasn't good at curating. He often knew what things were on sight, but he didn't write down much for us. I have a whole box of unknown fossils. Since we have several specimens of this fossil type, they were likely collected in South or North Carolina. We do have fossils and specimens from all over the world though, so it's not a guarantee. So I don't know the location, I don't know anything about the geology, and I haven't been able to find similar fossils online visually. I have many pictures, struggling with the file size restraints. I will post more pictures in the reply. Please ask for any details I may have.
  3. Gift from the Sea

    From the album OBX

    It's amazing what washes up on the Outer Banks - modern sea shells, sea glass, bits of wrecked ships and fossils, too! These shells embedded in sandstone washed ashore on Hatteras Island, NC, from the Pleistocene sandstone shelf on which the island rests.

  6. Outer Banks Treasures

    My hubby and I went to Hatteras Island, North Carolina this past week for some fun in the wind. But, I just can't go to the beach without beachcombing. Most of the beaches I visited were rather slim pickings for even decent modern shells. I finally did a Google search for the best shelling beaches on the Outer Banks and came up with a few beaches spread across the archipelago. The south side of Cape Hatteras was one of the best and quite close to where we were staying, so off I went. Wow. Colorful, unbroken shells lay thick on the tide lines and scattered across a wide, sandy plain. Here and there, blocks of sandstone (broken off the Pleistocene shelf that holds up the islands) were scattered. The surfaces exposed to the wind were sandblasted to expose the shells inside. Most of the shells retained their original colors. My suspicion is that they were buried while deep enough under water that they didn't have an opportunity to fade. The result is that the fossils - almost all extant species - were only distinguishable from their modern descendants by the clinging matrix. Fossil corals were also scattered sparsely across the sand. These are a bit easier to recognize as fossils as the closest coral reefs to Cape Hatteras are some 75 miles off shore. You can see more finds from this trip here:
