Found 10 results

  1. Seed Cone

    From the album Plants of the Lewellyn Formation

    Early Conifer Fruit/Seed Body about 4" long Pennsylvanian Age (308-300 MY) Lewellyn Formation Columbia County, PA The impression is coated in white iron oxide left from original plant material during fossilization.
  2. Araucaria pine cone

    Here is a Araucaria Mirabilis pine cone about 7.5 cm long.
  3. Mysterious Montana fossil

    Recently, I took a class that required me to go to Montana to study Geology. One of my finds included this fossilized object that I would consider some type of seed or pine cone of sort. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  4. I recently acquired a small Araucaria cone and I am wondering what the general opinion on cutting/polishing fossil pine cones. Should it be cut to show off the internal structure or is it best to just leave it as a whole specimen? How do you feel about modifying fossils in general to enhance aesthetic, rather than scientific, value? I am interested to hear the Fossil Forum's opinions.
  5. Fossilized Pine Cone?

    I found this today in a stream bed and I have no clue as to what it is. It resembles a pine cone but its hard and brittle like a rock. It also has a hollow middle. Any ID help would be appreciated. Thanks. Nic
  6. Fossil or Rock?

    I found this and several smaller ones in an ancient creek in the country of Georgia recently. This item is very heavy for its size. Can't figure out what it is.Please help.
  7. I went with a few friends to browse around a antique mall today, and i came across some cool pieces. I think i got a pretty good deal on some nice fossils. But i really do not buy fossils enough to know if a price is really good or not. I'd like to hear your opinion. The first one that caught my eye was a 7" Cambropallas pos/neg from Morocco. Now i know these are notorious for being faked, so i examined it as best as i could. It definitely is real, but has some repair. The negative side has the most repair. But i thought the $75 was worth a talk. So we talked and i got 10% knocked off. $68 sold!!! Next i spotted some nice Argentine pine cone fossils. I know they don't export them anymore, so the prices have rocketed to outrageous amounts. All of the pine cones were listed from $9-15. I picked out three nice pieces. (BUT i left about a dozen there. So if anyone has interest in get a few I'll go back and grab em'. I just ask you pay for the cost of item plus shipping. PM me.) Sure they're not complete, but they look good. Did i do good? more pics.......
  8. Equisetites Aequeliguinosis

    From the album Various

    Equisetites Aequeliguinosis, pine cone, Upper Eocene, Dhaka, Morocco.
  9. Fossil Pine Cone Impression

    First post. Hope I don't make any mistakes. While building a house in Studio City (Los Angeles), while doing some heavy excavation, I found quite a few and diverse types of fossils (Fossils in LA? Aren't those just retired movie stars? ). Crustaceans, fish, bones, etc. One of the fish was so impressive, I took it to the Natural History museum where they cut it to size (exposed beautiful strata on the sides of the sandstone), embedded it with some type of chemical for hardening, and were kind enough to classify it for me as a "sewer trout" (Lompoquia species). They said it was museum quality, so I'll probably donate it to them when I get tired of it (my house is my "museum", so I have lots of things like that around). But one fossil is problematic. It looks like a negative impression of a pine cone and is "large" (21x10cm). I've done a variety of Google searches with - fossil pine cone pinecone negative impression - and could only find a small example. This particular specimen is in VERY hard and heavy ROCK, as opposed to the nice soft sandstone for the fish. Would someone be so kind as to point me in the right direction for a good classification? I thank you very much in advance.
  10. Pine Cone?

    Most of the fossils I have found in this area are ocean related like Brachiopods, Gastropods, and Broazoan. But this rock fossil is quite different from any I've seen. Searching online, I thought I may find something similar. The closest that similarity is possibly a pine cone. Please let me know what you think. This rock has a rounded triangular shape. The measurement across the bottom of the 1st pic is about 44 mm. The height is about 38 mm. The petal-shaped pieces inside measure about 10 to 12 mm.
