  1. Hey guys! Bought a Meg tooth from a trusted seller for my soon, but for some reason I want to confirm it is real. Here are a couple images. It is about 5.6inch in length and weights 1lb 8oz or 0.6kg. Looks great when I hold it but as you know they make great fakes... so if anyone can spot something please let me know. Thanks!
  2. Hello everyone, First of all I must say that I’m new to buying fossils and that I know nothing about Ammonites. Recently I saw this Ammonite laying around in a small home decor shop. I immediately loved it, so I decided to purchase it. However, I’ve got a suspicion that this one is fake (or at least heavily sculpted), for the following reasons: 1. It was quite cheap. The certified ones I’ve seen on the internet (same size, same price) are much less detailed than this one. 2. It has ‘flaking’ layers and some cracks (see close up pictures) 3. It just looks a little bit too perfect compared with the ones I’ve seen on the internet. I wouldn’t really mind if it were fake, because it just looks really cool. But I’m really curious what you people think. Is this real, fake or sculpted? Thank you!
  3. There are lots off fossil eggs popping up on the market. Would be nice to get some opinions on the following one: middle one
  4. Hello again everyone! i received the egg I purchased. I took pics outside in sunlight so hopefully some of the can “shed light” on whether this is real or faked. Again, I greatly appreciate everyone’s input. Thanks! Aaron
  5. Hello everyone! I’m Aaron and I’m new here. I just purchased an egg online. I then started reading about how many fakes there are and now I’m very worried. Can anyone give me the skinny on whether it’s real or not? It’s coming from Malaysia and claims to have been part of a private Japanese collection prior to the 80s. I appreciate all your input, thanks!
  6. Hi everybody, I have been looking everywhere for a decent keichousaurus fossil for the past few months, but everything on that popular bidding site seems low quality. I came across this one and was wondering if it is legit. Thank you in advance!
  7. Hi everyone. This recently came in the mail. I’m almost positive that it’s real as I bought it from a reputable dealer, but just wanted to make sure. What does everyone think?
  8. Can someone tell me if this fossil is real or not, thank you.
  9. Hi there! I would like to know if this megalodon tooth is real or fake. My son says it's real due to all the damage on it, but I'm not so sure. The Seller says it's 5 and a half inches long and say the bought it at an estate sale in Texas. Thanks!

  14. Hi there everyone. I have some pyritized ammonites I believed to be real, but now I'm having second thoughts... The ammonoids from the picture below are both supposed to be pyrite, but why is one so much "golder" than the other? I know it is a natural process, so not every piece will be exactly like the other, but my ammonites are all like the first one, bright gold, and they are all from the same seller. I just wanted to know if they are real. I mean, if that's their real color or if they are treated somehow or painted, etc... Thanks in advance!
  15. Dear Forum I`m thinking about buying a red Meg from the St.Mary river. Found the following one and would like to get some opinions concerning restoration and repairs. Well there should`t be any.
  16. Hello clever people, Got these from online. Let me know what you think of them, are they fake? Especially the Spino... Thanks! JP
  17. Dinosaur tooth

    Hi I have built a case on all the Rocks I have shown and tried to send to you.and I get shut down at every corner.I am looking for the open-minded out-of-the-box thinker these are real fossils I have found and truly believe they are. This is all connected to the stone flaky all the lines run into the hard part of the gray area lines to all different sides of this decaying Rock like tooth
  18. Hi! I recently purchased the following Keichousaurus Hui. Although I have a modest fossil collection primarily consisting of Trilobites, this is my first Keichousaurus fossil. I had a chance to inspect the fossil first hand in the store before purchasing and while it looks quite nice to me, I would appreciate feedback from this group. IMHO, the piece is very attractive and presentable as a display piece (and it carried a correspondingly 'display piece' price!). I don't have any major concerns other than maybe the piece is too nice as it is nearly symmetrical, the detail is very fine, etc. Here is what I have observed: 1) The fossil is extremely 3D with well defined relief. Bones are thick, heavy, dark and well articulated. The fingers and toes in particular are very well defined. 2) The neck loop is very unique and the 'physical loop looks right' in that the bones go under and around each other in a believable way. 3) I did a very light acetone test on most bones, including the fingers and there was a bit of soil that came up. I did not see evidence of ink, nor did any of the bone detail wipe off. 4) The head is very detailed with needle like bones that might be teeth? 5) The matrix is soft and from the side is clearly layered. The back side of the matrix is flaking off and has a section that appears a little glossy... perhaps epoxy of some kind was used to shore up a weak back side? 6) There are thin cracks/striations that cross the specimen. These line up with the natural lines of the animal, so it does not appear that it is a composite. 7) There are no bubbles that I can see. 8) There appear to be a jumbled lump of bones in the gut... maybe the little guy's last meal? I have a ten day purchase guarantee from the seller and would love to keep this piece for display. Would appreciate the experts in this forum to help give me some confidence as to the quality of this piece, thank you! Jason
  19. I am looking into buying one of these parts of a mosasaur jaw and wanted to make sure there real. I believe there is, but getting a second opinion always helps.
  20. I do not have a lot of experience buying insect fossils and was wondering if this ancestor to the modern dragonfly fossil is real?
  21. Can you guys help me figure out if this Sinosaurus is genuine? It is on the ...auction site... and the seller has 4 total, they all look different from each other. I don't know enough (or anything, really) about these to determine if they're genuine or not. The description calls it a Sinohodrosaurus from a local auction, and that it has some reconstruction. I messaged the seller asking where it was collected and what the reconstructions are. I'll update if they get back to me!
  22. I am looking into buying the fossil shown below and I was wondering if any one can tell if it’s real or fake. I am leaning more towards real, but I would enjoy some second opinions.
