    Newbie find

    Taking my son for a nature hike yesterday morning, trying to inspire a love for the outdoors onto him. We ID everything we find, but this is our first fossil! Found this deep in the woods in millstone, Monmouth county. Spoke to two paleontologists, one said pycnodonte and the other said Ostrea. Help! I don’t know anything about fossils.

    Pearl Oyster with Bud

    This is a very rare find at this site. Although two members of the genus have been reported along the C and D Canal, this is the only one I've found at Reedy Point in 17 years of collecting there! PLEASE NOTE: It is possible that this was carried there during frequent human activity - perhaps in a tire tread from a vehicle that came from another site along the canal. This specimen has a 4mm pearl bud near the hinge on the interior side of the valve. Because there are more than one species of Pteria at the canal and this shell is heavily worn, I am refrainin

    Post Oak Creek oysters

    Does anyone know the Genus/Species of these common oysters from Post Oak Creek, Sherman, Texas.

    Mystery shell in need of ID

    Hello, all! As my first submission for identification, let me present to you the first fossil(?) I collected from the field. I feel I should apologize for several things right now: I have very little functional knowledge of local geography, especially as it relates to this specimen. In truth, I wasn't hunting for fossils when I found it; I was fishing for catfish. Since childhood, my favorite fishing spot has been at the junction of a local creek (Indian Creek, if anyone happens to know the geography of South-West Iowa) and the Missouri River. Good spot for big catfish, and plenty of
  5. In 2008, I found one of the prizes of my collection amongst a pile of sand and broken bits at Calvert Cliffs. I knew from seeing museum specimens of Isognomon maxillata that even with the tip broken off, this was a great find. After admiring it on my shelf every day since, I decided to share it. Today it has a new home at the Delaware Museum of Natural History, which did not have any of this species or much of anything from that region amongst its 2,000,000+ mollusk specimens. Along with the Isognomon, I donated a Chesapectin nefrens shell with a number of pearl buds on the inside and a Tongu

  10. Texas has SO many of these little fossils, but I love them and can't help but pick them up. Behold a plethora of Illymatogyra arietinas. (I got a new lighting set up and I am LOVING the way the photos are coming out!) Size (1/2 - 1 3/4 inches)

    Fused Oysters

    From the album: Delaware Fossils

    Two Exogyra cancellata shells from the Cretaceous spoils of Reedy Point, Delaware. Although Exogyras typically detached themselves from their anchorage while still very small - about 2-3 cm - these two animals continued to live and grow together. The lower valve is about 10 cm on the long axis.

    Ifrane, Morocco.

    Hi, gang. Some of you may remember the Southern Morocco trip I took in February. One of the places visited was quite near to me, about 70 km, lovely Swiss style mountain town called Ifrane where I found some Middle Jurassic brachiopods and echinoids. See http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/93193-ifrane-middle-atlas-morocco/&tab=comments#comment-1026671 A friend offered to drive me up there for the day so off we went I decided to check some outcrops on the other side of the road this time so went and had a peek.Sorry, no photos this time as wifey did
  13. Well Hello, Folks! This is my first post on The Fossil Forum. With my first ever fossil find! Just for some background, I was hiking in the badlands on a private property (with permission, friend of a friend), and I stumbled up a crusted-dirt hill when I knocked loose this black thing that went tumbling down the side of the hill behind me. It didn't look like a rock and I had to take a look. No kidding. An oyster fossil. I've never found a fossil before and I wasn't even looking for them! I was on top of the world. I took it to the land owner and asked if he

    Please help ID this

    These were found along the Guadeloupe River in Texas. I picked up about six of them. Some help in identifying them would be appreciated.

    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.

    Fossil

    Does anyone know if it’s possible for the meat; the edible part, of an oyster to be fossilised?

    Lake Texoma early Cretaceous oyster

    Duck Creek oyster ID please. This was the only one found in this area. I found numerous other early Cretaceous bivalves in Lake Texoma like Amphidonte walkeri, Graphea, Neithea.

    Bivalve fossil with pearl!

    I found this oyster fossil in a creek bed on a walk with my son in Austin, Texas sometime in May 2020. I believe it was in a Quaternary geologic formation. I’ve collected a number of these, but never with a pearl. Just curious if anyone else has seen one!

    Oyster from Wroclaw

    Hey everyone, Someone on reddit posted this great-looking oyster, asking for ID. And I can’t figure it out. The hinge looks really weird to me and inconsistent with the usual Ostrea oysters I see... They said it was excavated from a construction site about 12 years ago in the city of Wroclaw (Poland), near the Odra/Oder River. Which means there isn’t any literature about the age/formation/etc. Only thing I could find is this geological map that puts the area in Tertiary sediments (which is logical but not very helpful). Anyone have an idea of what to say abou

    Unknown Oyster, Madagascar

    Hey everyone! I recently acquired this oyster from Tulear province, Madagascar. The seller has listed it as Rastellum carinatum, but doing any research online, I’ve only found other sellers selling similar fossils. I did come across a Wikipedia article for Agerostrea sp. It appears to be the same shell, and it lists it as occurring in rocks that are Maastrichtian age from Madagascar. Are these the same species just under different names or are they separate? If so, what genus does my specimen belong too? Any response would be greatly appreciated from

    Freaky Flourescent Fossil Shell

    From the album: Fossil Flourescence

    In the daylight, this is an articulated Exogyra shell from the Cretaceous New Egypt Formation as it runs through Mullica Hill, New Jersey. I brought it home because it had an interesting bit of vivianite replacement covering half the surface of one valve. When I brought it home, I noticed some white material inside the shell cavity. I figured it might be calcite, which sometimes fluoresces. So, I pulled out my UV lamp. To my shock, not only did the white material glow an interesting powder blue color, but the majority of the one valve glows an intense, bright red! Meanwhile, the other valve do
