  1. Ichthyosaur vertrebra

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 3.7 cm long Ichthyosaur vertebra from the Posidonia shale from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. Here two more pictures: And a bad picture of the unprepped vertebra: The stone was extremely hard so the prep work was very difficult.
  2. Acrocoelites

    From the album Holzmaden

    This is a beautiful 15 cm long Acrocoelites (belemnite) from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. Its special because of its great preservation and because it has an enlarged furrow, which was probably caused by an infection or a bite. One of my best belemnites until now! Two more pictures: The enlarged furrow:
  3. Ichthyosaur tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    Here is a little (about 1 cm long) Ichthyosaur tooth from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Germany).
  4. Here are two of my best belemnites I found this year in the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic, Posidonia Shale) . I found tons of them this year but mostly they aren't that good preserved. The first one is about 15 cm long and is a relatively new find. I finished the prep yesterday. It's really good preserved and not too short. It should be Acrocoelites because I think I can see three apical furrows. Noticeable is that one of the apical furrows is really big. Maybe @TqB can tell a little bit more about this belmnite? And the second one is a 14 cm long belmnite with a crushed epirostrum. It could be Cuspiteuthis tubularis or a Acrocoelites inaequistriatus (thanks again for the ID Tarquin). Sorry the pictures are not the best but I thought some of you are more interested in seeing some invertebrate stuff from that quarry (normally I show the vertebrate material). Thanks for viewing
  5. pterosaur bone

    From the album Holzmaden

    This is a 11 cm long pterosaur bone (maybe a flight phalanx) from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. It was a very luck find as I found it on a stone, which I took with me because of another fossil. So I am very happy with this find although the preservation is not the best.... Two more pictures:
  6. Steneosaur tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 1 cm long Steneosaurus tooth (crocodile) from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Germany). Another picture:
  7. Last Sunday I was able to find a piece with some jaw bones and teeth of an Ichthyosaur in the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. I was very pleased with that find because the situation in the quarry is not the best. There is only a kinda small pile of stones where you are allowed to search (and where you can find marine reptile fossils, in the other regions of the quarry its very unlikely to find a bone or a teeth of a marine reptile). And this pile consists at the moment only out of very small rocks because they were laying until the beginning of the year there. So many collectors already searched there. And it's very likely that they don't get new material in this summer... Here is a bad picture of the quarry: And here are some pictures of the jaw bone with the teeth: The prep work took about 5 hours. It's a pity that I lost that missing part in the quarry. I searched about 1 hour for it but couldn't find it. But at that time I didn't know that its a jaw bone (no teeth were visible). Now about 65 small Ichthyosaur teeth are visible. They are from a very small Ichthyosaur, maybe even from a juvenile!
  8. Ichthyosaur vertebra

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 3.5 cm long Ichthyosaur vertebra from the Posidonia shale from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. Another picture:
  9. Ichthyosaur rib

    From the album Holzmaden

    A tiny 10 cm long Ichthyosaur rib from the lower Jurassic of the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. At first you could only see the cross section. The prep work took about 2 hours (I was slow ) One more picture:
  10. Ichthyosaur tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 1.4 cm long Ichthyosaur tooth from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Germany). Some more pictures:
  11. Steneosaur tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 1.3 cm long, a bit damaged Steneosaurus tooth (crocodile) from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Germany). Another picture:
  12. Steneosaurus tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 2 cm long Steneosaurus tooth (crocodile) from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Germany). Some more pictures:
  13. Crocodile vertebrae

    From the album Holzmaden

    These are two crocodile vertebrae from the lower Jurassic (Posidonia Shale) from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. The bigger one is about 8 cm long. Here is a picture of the unprepped fossil: The prep work took about 10 hours. I am very pleased with this find because in general crocodile bones are much rarer than Ichthyosaur bones in Holzmaden. Some more pictures:
  14. Ichthyosaur vertebra

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 2.5 cm long Ichthyosaur vertebra from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic, Posidonia Shale). Here is a picture of the unprepped cross section: It took about 3 hours to prep this one. Some more pictures:
  15. Steneosaurus tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A small and a bit damaged 1.2 cm long Steneosaurus (crocodile) tooth from the Posidonia Shale from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden.
  16. The quarry Kromer near Holzmaden did open two weeks ago (it was closed during winter). So last Saturday I was there the first time this year and I have to say that I am kinda satisfied with my finds! I found several marine reptile teeth, some mainly incomplete bones and a fish with much potential. In this topic I want to show how I prep/prepped a plate on which originally two Ichthyosaur verts were visible. The verts are all about 4 cm big. Here is a picture of the unprepped plate: (I have the other parts...) The prep work is very difficult because the stone is extremely hard. So I have to use my air pen to remove the stone directly above the verts and then I remove the remaining thin layer with my sandblaster with about 6 bar which is probably too much for the bones but otherwise I wouldnt do any progress ... This is the current situation: Until now I prepped about 4 hours and now you see that there are even more vertebrae on the plate At least 3 and a half.... And here is the one which wasnt visible at first. I damaged it a bit but I think its not too bad. Hopefully the stone is a bit softer around this one: I think I have to work many hours on it so wish me luck @LiamL
  17. Steneosaurus tooth

  18. Saurorhynchus jaw

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 6bcm long Saurorhynchus (?) jaw from the quarry Kromer in Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic, Posidonia Shale). Next to it is a beautiful pyritized bivalve. Another picture:
