  1. Looking For Fossils In Michigan

    It has become a yearly tradition of mine to visit the upper part of Michigan's lower peninsula, around the Gaylord and Traverse Bay areas, for vacation with my family, and I often spend time looking for fossil in the area, mainly Hexagonaria/Petoskey stones, but for some reason they are far and few between. During my time in the area, I have also found a chunk of limestone containing what appears to be the glabella of a trilobite surrounded by what appears to be large, crystalized corals, possibly a Heliophyllum or similar rugose coral, a smaller piece of the same coral, and what seems to be the calyx and arms of a crinoid. Should I be looking anywhere in particular along the shores of Lake Michigan that aren't as well known as some of the popular tourist destinations? Also, are there any areas more inland that are accessible? (i.e. old quarries, roadcuts, etc.) Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated!
  2. Day Two ; Locality One (or Six if you include Day One) Black Sahara, South of Erfoud 20th February 2019 Well this is where things really get interesting, so stick with this thread as there are dozens of photos of fossils coming up. Looks at the tags if you want clues. I was up bright and early and wandered out at about 7 am to watch the sun rise over the still mighty Erg Chebbi dunes. And as night's candles were burnt out and jocund day stood tiptoe over the misty duney tops, the chaps came to join me and managed lots of photos. Here's one, if you would like to see more, I'm busy posting a kazillion of 'em under the Nature Photography thread.
  3. Around Salt Lake City in 3 Days

    So I’m still snowed in so here’s a trip from warm Early June. My friends and I wanted to hit all the closest rock locations around Salt Lake City and search for fossils and cool sedimentary geology (a couple of them being sedimentary geologists). We visited the Southern Oquirrh Mountains and a few canyons over on the east side of the valley at the base of the Wasatch Mountains. Here are the stratigraphy columns for both provided by Geolgic History of Utah by Lehi F. Hintze and Bart J. Kowallis. I did not lead this trip so I am not certain which rock layers the fossils were each from (I’ll point out the ones I do know) but I’ll say we went through the Cambrian and Mississippian in the Oquirrh Mountains and basically everywhere on the Salt Lake City column.
  4. Does anyone have any information on the roguse corals found at the Fern Glen formation? I can only find one but the ones I have found there look nothing like the one in the photos. Mine all look like the "normal" tornado shapes. The Fern Glen is Mississippian. Here is the photos I'm talking about Amplexus sp. http://www.lakeneosho.org/Miss48.html I just did a prep on one (maybe my best prep yet) it's just a common and not even a good specimen, but I tried some different techniques. I'll post it tomorrow after everything dries and sets in. It turned out better than I thought but I will welcome critiques.
  5. Hi guys! This is a continuation of a previous post focusing just on the sponges. These fossils are from the Capitan Formation, which is Permian Period, Guadalupian Epoch, Capitanian Stage. Because these fossils are in the park, no collecting was allowed, and I can't provide additional images. Any confirmations about the identification or suggestions about a more specific identification are welcome. This trilobite is the only fossil out of these images that was actually found in Carlsbad Caverns, right behind the elevator. Can I get more specific on an ID? Cross section of rugose coral? Sponge? Bryozoan. Acanthocladia? Bryozoan? Crinoid.
  6. New York Catskills Trip

    My wife and I are on a short trip through south eastern New York State, in the Catskill Mountain region. We had a more adventurous trip in mind but after some recent car trouble we didn't feel quite as adventurous as we did a week ago. We stopped today at a site on Schoharie Creek, a bit south of Gilboa. The heat and humidity kept us from spending more than a half hour at the site today, but we plan on going back tomorrow morning when it will be somewhat cooler. The river tumbled stones were mostly eroded, and I didn't bring my hammer down to the beach crowded with swimmers, but we did make one find worthy of bringing back to the motel. Leila usually makes the best finds when we're just scanning the ground, and she came up with this worn but still attractive horn coral. I love the way it's still attached to the matrix. It almost looks like it's been prepped: The same rock also shows off some nice specimens of what appear to be tube worms. Despite the heat we're enjoying our trip so far, and we're very happy with our motel except for one disturbing problem. Clinging to the door inside our lovely room is a five-foot-long mirror, and I am periodically startled by the strange old man peering at me. What's he doing in my room?! Mike
  7. Hey, My sister and I found this rock that we thought looked a lot like a claw or a tooth. We found it in Norway in a lake, because of the drought the water was a lot lower than usual, so the place we found it would normally be underwater. It's not too far from the ocean either. I really don't know much about any of this, so I'm sorry that I'm not including too much information. (And sorry about the tags, I had no idea what to put there) I hope someone is able to help us, thank you

  17. Coral ID help

    Looking for help on some fossils found today in Somerset County! In what appears to be Limestone. Photo #1, 2 and 3 are the same rock - A rugose coral (see internal structure.) One member thought Lithostrotion . #4 - At the bottom, looks like a tabulate coral? #5 - Coral?
  18. ADAM's SILURIAN

    Hoooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here we are at last, into Adam's Silurian. Thanks for looking. First up is the Lower Silurian or Llandovery and I begin with a problem. I posted this one incorrectly in Adam's Ordovician as it had got it's label muddled up with an Ordovician Favosites I had that has vanished in the move here, but is being replaced by kind forum member @Herb Anyway, this, I remember now I've found the correct label, is from the greenish Browgill Formation, part of the Stockdale Group from a cutting near Skelgill (Skelghyll) in Cumbria, Northern England. It seems to be a tabulate coral, but I can't find any listed for this location, only mentions of small, rare, rugose corals. It has the star shaped corallites of a Heliolitidid, but seems to be tightly packed together like a Favositidid. A couple of species of Palaeofavosites seem to be close and are a bit star-shaped,, but anyone know any better? @TqB@piranha hmm who else? The coral bit, an external mold, is a maximum of 3.5 cm across and each corallite up to 2 mm.
  19. Hungry Hollow epibiont help

    Hello everyone! This past Saturday, Viola and I braved the cold to do some fossil collecting in the south pit of Hungry Hollow near Arkona, Ontario (Mid-Devonian). When I got home and washed up my specimens, I saw something interesting on one of the horn corals - I think it's a brachiopod - am I right? And does anyone know its identity? Thanks in advance for your help! Monica
  20. Rugose Corals

    I should preface this post by saying that the Paleozoic, marine ecosystems, and invertebrates are not generally my primary expertise, so I apologize if I am wildly off base or asking stupid questions. Sadly, I did not find these specimens myself, and so I do not have any particularly useful information on age or location. They were left in a desk drawer along with a collection of other invertebrate fossils, most (if not all) of which are Paleozoic in age. I have several different rugose coral species, and I would love to know if anyone can refine that identification further. I thought the colonial rugose coral might be an Eridophyllum species, but I would not bet much on my identification. The third is truthfully in terrible condition and I doubt there is much to say about it, but I thought I would see. Here are the pictures. Thank you in advance for your time and input. Specimen #1: Specimen #2: Specimen #3:
  21. Last summer my wife and I took a side trip on our way to Mackinac Island to hunt for Petoskey stones along the shores of Lake Michigan at Little Traverse Bay.Petoskey stones are a fossilized rugose coral, Hexagonaria percarinata, found in the Gravel Point Formation of the Traverse Group from the Devonian era.Glaciers deposited chunks of this coral that were subsequently rounded by wave action. When dry, the stone resembles ordinary limestone but when wet or polished using lapidary techniques, the distinctive mottled pattern of the six-sided coral fossils emerges. I hand polished this piece and had it set in a pendant by a local jeweler. Another form of fossilized corals are also found in the same location,Charlevoix stones.Charlevoix stones are Favosites an extinct kind of tabulate coral. While hunting for Petoskey stones I found this Actinostroma. Apparently these stromatoporoids are common but I thought that this one was a well preserved specimen.
  22. Although this is the same thin section of Rugose Coral posted earlier, they are substantially different in what has been revealed with further polishing. The original thin section was approx. 80microns thin. The additional polishing with 1200 and 2000 grit diamond disks has proved to reveal additional and unexpected detail at a thickness of 35 microns. The new slide photos were taken with a Canon 100D on a Zeiss 305edu microscope. Slide 1 is the cross section as previously posted. Hints of what lay hidden are visible, but the slide is too thick to see detail. Slide 2 is the thin section after another hour of polishing. There are some disc lines in the slide, but I was at the limit of my set up and feared polishing the specimen to oblivion. Slide 3 is viewed through a Dark Field stop. Slide 4 is a close look at the centre of the coral.
  23. Flabellum mortoni 1

    From the album Eocene Corals of NJ

    I am pretty confident in this identification. The coral is flattened and not curved. These are pretty abundant. Found in Monmouth County, New Jersey.
