  1. Ancient Sea plant?

    This looks like a fossil, but I'm not sure. Need your expertise to identify.
  2. Help me ID!

    I found these at Holden Beach over Christmas break and would love some help identifying them! I know they are probably in the sea urchin family, but I would like to know more information about them if anyone has any! Thanks in advance.
  3. Hi everyone, does anyone know how I can clean this sea urchin and how to remove all the silicoclastic matrix?
  4. coral id

    the following appears to be a coral, or sponge? It is not my own find, a friend gifted them to me, he said his fisherman grandpa, found them in the water near the island. They are heavy-ish, very hard and sound like rocks when hit them with each other and other rocks. size: when placed next to each other 10cm x 4cm(to3cm) and 2cm thick. Also appart from the obvious shell which looks modern, there is a tiny white pointy edge - snail -like shell with vertical lines all around, and a hole on its side, that could also be fossil, unless that it is supposed to be so white when baby. (photo1 and 2, left piece, top right circle, u can see the baby shells opening and hole)
  5. Hello everyone, it's my first post here. Recently around the Gulf at Muscat, Oman, I found this tube-like structure bind strongly to a rock after some digging with my hands under the water on a remote small beach (no signs of previous visits there.) There's no sand on that shore, instead a coarse-sand-like nature of very small shell and rock fragments. The start of this tubular structure is very narrow, and its radius increases as it appears to curl in a life-like form of some organism. Unfortunately the top appears missing when I found it.
  6. Trip to Saltburn

    Took a family trip to Saltburn yesterday, just up from where we normally go (Redcar) and made some discoveries, one of which looks like a nautiloid. I made a video of that last one, the possible nautiloid:
  7. Weird armor-like thing

    Hi all, Found this 2 days ago on the Zandmotor (Netherlands). I have no clue what it is... Anyone know what it could be from? Thanks in advance, Max
  8. Need help please!

    Oh my I don't know where to start really! My 10 year old daughter is interested in collecting fossils. Today we have been to Filey beach on the East Coast, UK. She found numerous fossils. I think I have managed to help her identify them as ammonite, brachiopod and gryphaea. One however has me stumped and google isn't helping, maybe bone or wood? (to be honest I'm not sure it even is a fossil!) she is proud of her finds and is desperate to know what it is, hence me being here asking for help! Many thanks in advance
  9. Can someone tell what is this?

    I found this some time ago on the coast of Lyme Regis. Cant identify it. Its like 20 cmt long
  10. Frankstown, MS

    I went on my very first fossil hunt today in northern Mississippi. I was excited to find fossils, but I am having trouble identifying the following 4. Thank you in advance, I cannot wait to learn more about this wonderful hobby.
  11. Hello, I just found this strange rock on a rocky beach in southern Italy - Europe. The rock is flat and well levigated all around... the central part has some blackish shades... and as You can see has all those strange lines/spikes starting from center... at first I thought about a sea urchin... but what attracted me most are those ramifications at top of the spikes and in between them... this detail make me wonder if is some kind of plant... Is it a fossil or is just my imagination that makes me believe that? Thanks for the attention...
  12. What is this?

    im not sure what this is but its beautiful. found in a rock pile with corals, and many other rocks and fossils. is this a type of sea coral? or is this a rock. it makes me think of cave formations. any feedback appreciated. its 25 inches in diameter.
  13. Is this a skull?

    Hello guys! I'm new here and my English not perfect as you see I found this fossils and i wonder what they are. It seems to me that first one looks like turtle shell but i have no idea about other one. Can anyone help me? Thank you!
  14. Hi all, Yesterday I went to the Zandmotor, and I brought back a couple of bones from there (namely an awesome big mammal tooth). I left them tonight just in the living room so that they could dry, but when I came back this morning I had an unpleasant surprise: many of the pieces of bone had started to become white (as seen in the first picture), and the big tooth has started to decompose (as in there are constantly small crumbs of the tooth that are falling off; you can see small black spots next to the tooth in the picture, those are some of those crumbs). I am very worried about this, and wouldn't want my fossils to get damaged. Can anyone tell me how to keep them safely? As in what are some of the best conservation methods? The bones were found on a sandy beach, so I think that salt has a role in this... Please help fast! Happy Easter, Max
  15. Help identify find.

    Hello. I found this "thing" on the ocean floor while diving in the Philippines. It looks kind of like a tooth of a marine animal, probably not a shark. Any ideas?
  16. Is this a bone?

    My daughter and I love to collect shells, fossils, shark teeth, etc... I collected this from an unusual location...a yard sale lol Bought it along with a few sea shells. Thought it somewhat resembled a bone. It looks like it came from the ocean due to the texture. It weighs 10.3 oz, so somewhat heavy for its size.
  17. What sea urchin is this?

    Not sure what this is I found it while looking for garnets in sand in south Australia. i know it's some kind of urchin but I haven't been able to find any information on what it could be
  18. Greetings. I am a newbie inside the world of fossil hunting and I would be very happy if someone could help me to identify this broken fossil I found at a quarry. I am actually living in the Balearic Islands were is possible to find fossils from the devonian to the miocene and the one I found is lying at the lower level of a coast quarry in the island of Menorca. This area of the island was formed during the miocene and is full of bivalve fossils like pleistocene Pecten. The fossil I have found looks like a robuste bone which is about 16 cm (6,3 inch) long and which you can see at the picture I have attached here, thank you very much in advance.
  19. Hello again. So the story behind those is that I found the smaller one when I was a child.. may be around 15 years ago and I kept it to bring me memories for the adventurous spirit from those times. This year, my brother found the bigger one.. it is similar but a little bit larger so I decided for a first time to investigate the origins. I found the little one in area with trees and leafs on the ground and somehow I think I stepped and dug it from the ground cause the angle of the soil was too sheer. The area is central Bulgaria, seems like some kind of cockle ? Seen more like this ? The closest sea is 180km away... is that a proof for area being full of water may be long time ago?
  20. Hello dear fossil-hunters! So here is the report that a few of you have been waiting for: my trip to the Formação dos Olhos de Ãgua! So after a nice breakfast in the sun, we took the car from Vale do Lobo to Albufeira, another coastal city in the Algarve of Portugal. After just a bit of searching, we found a good parking spot for our car. We walked down towards the beach, Praia de Oura, and were amazed by the magnificent view.
  21. Unknown sea sphere

    Found this strange rock on a beach in Kent UK about 10 years ago, its about the size of an apple and is very heavy. Does anybody have any clue what it could be please.

  23. What is this?

    Hello! Found this on my grandparents farm in southern Missouri. Any ideas what it is? Thanks! Btw, love this helpful forum. Thank you!
  24. The Route Less Traveled

    We made a couple trips to Beltzville State Park in PA this past week. We had heard about brachiopods on the lake's beach from Robert Beard's Rockhounding Pennsylvania and New Jersey guide. The park is the site of dam and an artificial lake build by the Army Corps of Engineers with a stony bottom. A small, sandy beach sits along part of the lake with rocks get scattered from water action. The rest of the lake shore is red, orange, brown and gray mississippian sedimentary rock. I wasn't expecting much as it is a well-known spot in a state park that permits collecting and even provides ID sheets. Figured it would be pretty well picked-over. But, we went to investigate. You never know until you look, right? The first time out was a short, spur-of-the-moment trip with my husband to poke around while we waited for something we were planning to do later in the day. We walked over to the beach and found our first crinoid in about 5 minutes. Another hour of poking around revealed crinoid stems, brachiopods, bryozoans, corals, and bits of trilobites scattered along the shore for easy pickings. The water was crystal clear as deep as I dared wade in the sundress I'd worn for the planned, cleaner agenda for the day. I picked up a couple lying at my feet in the warm, still water. I decided then and there that it would be great fun to go snorkeling for fossils here. A week later, over Labor Day weekend, we returned with the kids. We walked as far towards the dam as the beach would allow, and discovered the real spot for fossil finds. Probably one pebble in four had something in it. Not all of it was worth taking home, but there was plenty to examine. My first glance down at the pebbles at land's end, I spotted a beautiful brachiopod. I picked it up and tossed it carefully to my daughter, parked a couple feet away and already holding a fistful. She caught it, admired it and tossed it back. I fumbled it, dropped it on the beach and lost it forever. Doh! So, if you see a lovely, round brachiopod on Beltzville's shore, think of me! There was more where that came from though, and we looked for a couple hours. When my daughter had had enough, I donned my swim suit and snorkel mask and went exploring in the area less traveled: under water! I only swam at a depth of arm's length. The boats and jet skis in the center of the lake that day stirred the water so that any deeper it was impossible to see the bottom. At this depth I could see the texture of the muck-coated rocks. The undersides of the rocks were clean, so turning the stones over carefully made for even better viewing. I turned up a pair of trilobites in only a few minutes! Unfortunately, that was about the only thing I found that way worth taking home. But, the fish were fun to watch. I expect that on a quieter day, when when the water is clearer, I may have better luck. All told, we brought home some nice shell impressions, crinoids, colony and solitary corals, bryozoans, and a couple that I did not recognize and were not on the sheet. The adventure will have to continue on the the ID forum. For now, though, here are a few scenes from the week:
