    This is weird....

    I have no idea what this is. Any ideas? I really don’t want to break it open unless you guys suggest I do so. I think I found it in a field - my area is north central Ohio. It’s heavy and not brittle at all. Feels smooth but kind of like dry mud or clay. I don’t think it’s a rock but I need your help please. Thank you.

    ADAM'S SILURIAN

    Hoooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here we are at last, into Adam's Silurian. Thanks for looking. First up is the Lower Silurian or Llandovery and I begin with a problem. I posted this one incorrectly in Adam's Ordovician as it had got it's label muddled up with an Ordovician Favosites I had that has vanished in the move here, but is being replaced by kind forum member @Herb Anyway, this, I remember now I've found the correct label, is from the greenish Browgill Formation, part of the Stockdale Group from a cutting near Skelg

    Possible coral with trilobite?

    Hi there! I recently purchased an awesome Flexicalymene trilobite. After unwrapping it, there was a bonus surprise fossil! I didn't think too much of it prior to buying, and just thought it was a matrix blob from the seller's photo. But I'm pleasantly surprised! My first thought was that it was a piece of coral or some type of ocean plant. The info card that came with the trilobite states that it was found in Mt Orab, Ohio, USA in the Arnheim formation. Wondering if any of you cool cats would be able to identify what it is? I'm just curious and interested
  4. Hello, I am an amateur fossil hunter whos level of knowledge is pretty limited. I love going out and hunting but my ability to identify and prep what I find is quite limited. I found this cephalopod fossil near Cincinnati Ohio a couple of years ago and it is by far my best find ever. I'm typically fine picking at or grinding away with a Dremel trying to prep my finds as they are usually small bits. Nothing I'm worried about ruining. This is something different and I'm pretty apprehensive about working on it. I read there isn't much harm in gluing it back together and I attempter this. It looks
  5. Hello, I've been recently fascinated by large isotelus trilobites. Does anyone on here own one and would like to show and talk about it, I would if I owned one but I don't see that happening anytime soon haha. This is the largest I've seen for sale so far that would've been 8 inches, would be nice to be able to find one but I don't have that luxury.
  6. I'm working up a series of fossil field guides for various formations. I'd like to provide a visual indicator of which fossils are rare, which are common, and which are abundant, without getting in the way of the visual layout of the fossils & identifying information. The complete set of categories I am working with is {Abundant, Common, Rare, Very Rare, Common to Abundant, Rare to Abundant, Rare to Common, Present, and Questionable}. Has anyone seen a good way that a field guide of any kind has provided such a visual indicator as a page-wide element of visual layout? Attached is my first

    Devonian Glacial Grooves, Kelley's Island

    Hello everyone, I was hesitant to make this post because I have to give up my secret treasure-trove of marine fossils, but I guess you Ohioans deserve to know. When we went to Cleveland, we stopped at Kelley's Island to go to the beach. Being a fossil-hunter, I started sifting through sand for rocks. I found some, and carefully examined each one. I got all kinds of fossils, about 10-15 in all. That was surprising enough. But then we went to 2 more beaches, and found some real beauties! I am not going to specify exactly where the best trove is, but just search all of them and I guar

    Reptile heads or rocks?

    So over the last few years I've collected different rocks, fossils, and anything else I find that i think is unique. Eventually, I go through them and have a closer look. I'm sure my eyes are making things up, but, hey, why go om wondering when I can just ask?? I have some rocks here some found in Indiana and some in Ohio and I'm wondering if they are reptile heads of some sort(I'm assuming that's a thing people actually find lol) If you tell me they are rocks, I will believe they are rocks and will appreciate the knowledge. Thank you in advance! You guys rock(yes, pun intended)! Oh, and the

    Anyone know what this might be?

    I found this while camping in Ohio and after getting home and cleaning it up, it looks to have some type of fossil. Maybe coral or slug? I'm really not sure. These pictures are with a micro camera.
  10. I graduated college back in May, and since my graduate program did not start until September, I was fortunate to have quite a bit of time this summer to explore further away from home. I've been slowly prepping and cataloging over the past couple months, and figured I would share some of my favorite finds that I haven't shared yet. First up is dump piles of Silica Shale (Middle Devonian) in Paulding, OH. My university was not far from here, so this is really where I started fossil hunting. I've been here quite a few times, so most of what I found I already had in

    Flowrock with a fossil

    I think I finally found a fossil within a piece of flowrock!?!?!? Found in the same area as the other flowrock pieces in N central Ohio, in a river. Nothing superb but I’m excited! Looks like a shell to me- right? Thanks!
  12. Becky Benfer

    What in the world?

    Found in N central Ohio- it’s so oddly shaped and full of weird pieces. Maybe a conglomerate?? The bottom right area has a different, small dotted look. Could it consist of a fossil? Thanks for your help!
  13. Hi- this is such a large piece and it looks like tree bark or wood , but it’s a rock. Could it be petrified wood or plant root? ( I keep finding small pieces like this as well.) Found in N central Ohio, river. If the location wasn’t known would you think it may be one of those ? Just curious. I guess I’m asking what to look for because I drag tooooo many “ rocks” home, Thanks again for all help .

    Oyster or rock?

    Probably just another rock but sure has the shape of an oyster, in my opinion. Thought I’d ask....thanks for your help.
  15. Becky Benfer

    Anything?

    Is this possibly a plant fossil or something else? Found in Ohio river, north central area. The small dot like marks on this rock are similar to other marks I’ve found on other rocks in the same area. Just wondering what it could be or how it was formed? Thanks for your help.
  16. Becky Benfer

    Rock or something else?

    Hi- found in the same area as others I’ve been asking about. This seems to have something of interest on it. Anything ? Or just rock ? Thanks for your help. The area is north central Ohio ( river/bank area).
  17. Here are some finds from a late August to early September long loop road trip, fossil hunting through Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Indiana and Kentucky. I'll appreciate detailed specimen identification help. First photo shows brachiopods & a trilobite from the Devonian Silica Shale Formation near Sylvania, northwestern Ohio.

    Help identify

    Found in Miamisburg ohio. In a dried up creek bed. Please help me identify these teeth please
  19. I found a variety of brachiopods in the Devonian Silica Shale Formation near Sylvania, Ohio, in mid-August. A few are a bit pyritized.

    To break up or not

    OK, so I picked this rather large hash plate up in Ohio just across the river from KY. Ordivician. Dead center and under the tape measure in this pic, is a nice trilo butt. Might be rolled, not sure. But as you can see, its a LARGE chunk. Its about 5 inches thick. And its heavy. I have been contemplating having at it and seeing whats hiding in its depths. Could end up with some nice smaller pieces I am thinking. What would you all do?

    Wayne County Trilobite?

    A couple years ago I was on vacation in Wayne county Ohio, and I stepped on something in a lake I picked it up and found this. Originally, I thought it was a shell piece, but when I looked again it looked like a trilobite because of the three lines. I know it’s partial so I’m unsure if I’ll get an ID but I hope I do. Ignore the scratch marks, I tried uncovering more but the rock is very hard and impossible to clear with a small tool.

    help with identifying

    I've had this fossil for 20 years and I have not been able to identify these structures. Does anyone recognize them? The matrix is a hard, grey green shale(?) and the structures are dark brown. I believe it's age is Devonian. Other fossils found at the same spot are brachiopods and horn coral. I have looked all over to find something similar with no luck. Sorry for the poor picture quality. I only have the camera on my phone which is pretty old. Thank you in advance for any help or suggestions.
  24. Came across this specimen on an Ohio Fossils group. It was apparently found in south-central Ohio (Serpent Mound area) in 1958. What’s bothering me is that it seems to be a marine pelecypod with aragonitic preservation. All of Ohio’s exposed rocks are either Paleozoic or Pleistocene, and with vanishingly few exceptions, Paleozoic aragonite is simply not preserved. I know there are mollusks in pleistocene marine concretions, notably from Newfoundland, but not in the sediments representing Pleistocene Ohio’s terrestrial&freshwater environments. This is a marine clam, and there was no marine
