Hi everyone! In a few days I am going to Helsinki in Finland to visit my girlfriend who is currently studying there. But now was my question, are there any fossils to be found in or around Helsinki? I suppose baltic amber might be found at beaches, but does anyone know of other things or specific places where one could find anything? I won't be taking any digging materials with me, so I am really looking at things you can just pick up like amber, shark teeth, fossilized bivalves or stray fossils in boulders (don't know if it is a proper translation but zwerfsteenfossielen as we call them in Dutch). If anyone known anything that would really be helpfull! Also does anyone know anything about the fossil laws in Finland and does anyone know any fossil or mineral shops in Helsinki? Thanks in advance!
Walt posted a topic in Fossils On The WebNice video about Scandinavian trilobites which contain well preserved features. Good images and lecture in video including trilobite which died molting and a baby trilobite.
Hi! I suppose this is going to be a piece of cake for professionals like you. However this specimen who has most likely met a very violent end in the woods of northern scandinavia stilll remains unidentified to this day. Would anyone be kind enough to take the time to help? (Second picture follows)
