  1. I have found all of these in Oklahoma and I'm not sure what they are, or anything like that! If you want to help that would be great! Including a link to my photo album on Facebook of these rocks/fossils. I hope that is OK! I think you might have to copy/paste it! https://www.facebook.com/Areopagus/media_set?set=a.10155003946494048.1073741867.783084047&type=3
  2. I recently stopped at a used book store and purchased a 1958 Hardback edition of the Carroll Fenton- "The Fossil Book", which is a great book if you have not seen it before. Inside the book I found the attached 4 1/2 " by 7 " card, warning about "Rock Pox"; which I think all of us suffer from. The store that the card came from (Mid-America Rock Shop- Chicago) is also a fossil, and I would guess that it has not been around since the 70's. Enjoy.
  3. So I found a few interesting things today all within a short distance of each other... my question is about the two larger "rocks" they don't seem to be rocks but I am not sure what else they would be? They are very soft..the one maybe looks like coal? Also wondering what type of coral I have! And what the white/brown "rock" is? And another couple of things maybe some can ID ?? Thanks Specimen 1 Specimen 2

  5. From my walk yesterday, different colors on teeth, rocks, stingray mouth plate,
  6. Help id please...
  7. My finds on this twenty degree day ...
  8. I got a question that I'll like to seek some opinions. I'm a fossil collector and my method of storing and displaying my fossils is to use stack-able aquarium tanks to reconstruct the concept of a display cabinet. So far I had this up for about 1.5 years already and so far it is stable. However, I'll like to seek everyone's opinions on my method for displaying and will like to have some advises and tips, if this method is safe enough for the long term. Thank you.
  9. THIS WAS A GREAT DAY FEB 15 AT NOON IN THE COMOX VALLEY SKIPPY THE FOSSIL FREAK GAVE AWAY OVER 1000 BAGS WITH FOSSILS and over 500 local fossils to the freaky cool kids of V[attachm
  10. I'm new at this, but I've found a few things that caught my eye while hiking. I have no idea if these are fossils or just rocks. All of these are creek bed finds coming from eastern Kentucky. I'm trying to learn as I go, so any help at all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  11. We just purchased some land in Fannin county. Some of he garden beds are lined with these unusual rocks. I know they are some kind of limestone, but what are they? They are bowling ball large. Someone mentioned that they might be some fossilized sponges, but since they line he gardens, I wonder if they are manufactured.
  12. Hi everyone, I was hiking in search of fossils near Fonteno, Beramo in Northern Italy, just by Lake Iseo, when I found this object. Having recently been to the Museum of Natural History of Bergamo, I found out that near Fonteno it was plentiful of fossils, dating back to 400 million years ago, when Lombardy was at the bottom of a sea. The fossil (hope so) is 1 cm across, opaque black, and two of the three lobes seem clearly visible. I used my macro-lens to improve the quality of the details. I hope someone will help me identify it, Thank you all in advance, Luca
  13. Taken from my blog: http://redleafz.blogspot.ca/2013/04/red-rocks-mcgahey-brook-cape-chignecto.html I've been catching up on a lot of past trips I made in the Maritimes that I didn't have time to post on my blog. One such trip was a rockhunting trek in Nova Scotia in the Advocate Harbour area, West of Parrsboro. Site (circled in red), Isle Haute (bottom left) The topography of the southern Chignecto region is very faulted, showcasing the collision of this part of the continent with North Africa some 400 million years ago, forming the ancient Supercontinent Pangaea. The Carboniferous strata of this regions has been folded and faulted in spectacular fashion, neighboring Jurassic (Early) age basalts from North Mountain, which you can see at Cape d'Or and other locations along the Minas Basin, and rhyolites in the West (ie. Spicer's Cove). Cape d'Or is especially known for its natural copper deposits, once mined in the early 1900s. 1- Actual Location (C-H Carboniferous, Early - Horton Group) CC - Carboniferous, Late - Cumberland Group (ie. Joggins) 2- Cape d'Or, Copper deposits, basalt lava flows, major fault 3- Jurassic, Early - North Mountain basalts (various overlapping lava flows) Isle Haute, composed mainly of basalt (Jurassic) Since the last ice age about 11,000 years ago, the area was uplifted. The land rebounded, leaving raised beaches on top of the cliffs with layers of glacial till. Because the region was involved in this tectonic tug of war, whatever fossils found in the rock has been worked mostly beyond recognition. There are some rare fossils that escaped this calamity, but they are very scarce indeed. Sandstone and other types of sedimentary rock had been metamorphosed, pulled apart and pressed, warped, and molded. Beading, sandstone under tectonic stress Tremendous pressure applied to these rocks introduced minerals such as quartz (quartzite). The shales and mudstone are practically pulverized, ground into a very fine material, resulting in this dark sand all over this beach. Glacial striation for fault scarring? Horsetail (related to ancient club mosses, lycopsids) Nice folding! Folding and faulting Sedimentary strata changed under incredible stress Morphology drastically being modified in several episodes This area is very fascinating and exciting. Here is a place where you can witness the continent being pushed around and shaped over and over during a very long period of time, in various ways, due to harsh and extreme forces exerted by the tectonic activity at the time of continental push and separation over 400 million years. The scale of it is amazing on the grandiose scale to the micro level of change. This shows that rocks can be very malleable under great stress. What doesn't bend, eventually breaks. Cheers!
  14. I found this walking on the beach in South Carolina. Can't tell if it is a fossil or a really strange shaped rock. Thinking it is a fossil due to the symmetry of the groves on both sides. Looks like some kind of joint bone or vertebrae. It is heavy like a rock but just seems too symmetrical to be one. Help me out!!
