  1. schlacke

    How do you identify the layer schlacke in Holzmaden
  2. Ichthyosaur rib

    From the album Holzmaden

    This is a 10 cm long part of an Ichthyosaur rib from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. As you can see its kinda damaged. Firstly it was already damaged as i found it and secondly the preparation wasnt optimal as well. Normally you prep these bones from Holzmaden with air abrasive but I only have an air pen. So I damaged it a bit further.
  3. Temnodontosaurus tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A very nice Temnodontosaurus tooth from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic). Temnodontosaurus was a huge Ichthyosaur. The tooth is about 2 cm long and 1 cm wide. So its one of my biggest tooth from Holzmaden ! In the "Schlacke" (a specific layer) you can sometimes find smaller teeth but such big teeth in a good condition are very rare. Some more pictures:
  4. An awesome tooth !

    Yesterday I was again in the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic) and I found a really nice tooth ! The tooth is about 2 cm long and 1 cm wide ! I think its one of the biggest tooth I have ever found ! Its a Temnodontosaurus tooth, which is a large Ichthyosaur. In the "Schlacke" (a specific layer) you can sometimes find smaller teeth but such big teeth in a good condition are very rare. I am really happy about this one Especially because there wasnt much material there, so it was a lucky find ! The prep took about 4 hours. - The quarry, where I find this teeth will close during winter so the tooth is also a great completion of this year !
  5. Last week I visited the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic) for about 4 hours and I found many cool things ! Beside of some belemnits I also found some nice teeth. Mainly they are very small but this time I found a nice one. Its a Temnodontosaurus tooth, a large Ichthyosaur, which mainly hunted ammonites. The teeth had robust roots so that they could withstand the stresses of cracking shells without breaking off.‭ The tooth is about 2.1 cm long and I am very happy about this one. In the past I also found some nice Temnodontosaurus teeth but such teeth in a good condition are very rare. You will maybe wonder now about the negative title but as you can see at the pictures the tooth isnt perfect. A part of the root is missing and the surface is a bit damaged. Here are some impressions: Thanks for viewing !
  6. Steneosaurus tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A beautiful about 2 cm long Steneosaurus tooth from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic).
  7. Ichthyosaur tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 1 cm long Ichthyosaur tooth from the lower Jurassic of Holzmaden (quarry Kromer). Another picture:
  8. Ichthyosaur tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A beautiful 1.3 cm long Ichthyosaur tooth from the lower Jurassic of Holzmaden (quarry Kromer). From another angle:
  9. Steneosaurus tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 1.1 cm long croc (Steneosaurus bollensis) tooth from the the lower Jurassic in Holzmaden, quarry Kromer.
  10. 3 new teeth from Holzmaden

    Not really a fossil hunting trip (its too cold and too much snow here ... ), but i found three teeth from Holzmaden (lower Jurassic) in material which I picked up last year ! I am very happy with them, although they are very small and a bit damaged. I am not sure if i post the frst one here already ... Its a 0.4 cm long Ichtyosaurus tooth without a tip. I found it on a rock with a belemnite at the front .... The second one was on a very huge stone ! Fortunately i got a stone cutting machine for christmas so this isnt a problem anymore (poor neighbours ) It should be also an Ichthyosaurus tooth with a length of 0.8 cm and an interesting color ! Sry for the bad photo ... And last my favourite "new" tooth. I found it today in a crate with very old material. First I only saw the tip but the preperation wasnt that difficult ... Its a nice 1.1 cm long Steneosaurus tooth ! Please correct me if i mislabeled something or if somebody can id the further ... Thanks for viewing !
