Found 9 results

  1. My father found this in the mid 70s in Eastern NM off the side of a road after a rain storm. He thinks it washed out from the ground. It is larger than a fist and very dense. The white is paint my dad accidentally got on it. Looks like a rope tied around it and cross crossed; 2 areas look knotted. I wondered if it is a petrified drinking apparatus. Any ideas?
  2. Newbie looking for ID help

    I am fortunate to have moved to the Bighorn Basin in Northern Wyoming with all of the awesome geologic structures and fossils. I work in healthcare but love learning about all things science. Wyoming is awesome...where else can your son's 8th grade class take a field trip to dig up trilobites (and bring them home) and walk in dinosaur footprints. Anyways, saw this structure in sediment rock in the northern bighorn basin. The rock layer is just below the red chugwater dirt layer (I think). There are multiple coin sized fossilized shells and softball sized coral pieces. This structure in the picture appears to extend in to the rock layer which is fractured along the right edge of the structure. Just wondering what this might be. Thanks, Dean
  3. Any ideas of what this is?

    I found this yesterday in a field in Southern Central Minnesota. The field borders a prairie pothole lake. I also found a small shell impression in a sedimentary rock there in the past. In the photos there are 2 like impressions that continue around the piece. Appreciate your thoughts. Thank you.
  4. Bones maybe

    Ok here are some interresting finds, I suspect they are fossils, suspiciously looking like bones, some occasions there's indication of merrel. Location: edge of Moni formation, 3km from sea, 3-5million years old. Under the very end of a series of limestone slabs, in a layer of mud. All in a 2 square meter radious, attaching also some I could not remove from there. diameters vary from 5mm to 35mm and the longest is 20cm. Near by I found also oyster parts and other bivalves and a couple of plant shaped white material embeded in stone. here we go: 1) all together 2-4) sample 1 5-9) sample 2 see next post for the rest
  5. Pleistocene

    Hello all! It's been a while since I've been on the forum but I'm back with a question that has been nagging at me. Where does one search for Pleistocene fossils in Nova Scotia? Most of the fossils in my collection are composed of shale and depict leaves and sticks. Not that there's anything wrong with them, it's just that my the Pleistocene epoch has really caught my interest these last few weeks. My internet research hasn't provided any fruit so I thought I would bring my question to this wonderful community of fossil experts and hunters. I know that mastodon and other Pleistocene fossils have been found in Nova Scotia before, one mastodon was found only a few km from where I live. Are Pleistocene fossils not as common as ones with older age? I am hoping that you can give me some suggestions on what to look for and where to look. And possibly some information on how common these fossils are. Thanks Boris
  6. miscellaneous non biogenic tracks

    I love this little gem by a man who knows all about ichnofossils. Wish it were a slightly longer piece. Good documentation of the marine influence (waves,e.g.)on the upper layer of sediment . Enjoyable!! TiltingSed Geol 288.pdf edit: so it's basically about non-biogenic ichnites,but in a lot of marine environments the trackmaker( in the cases documented in this article passively being moved about) will be an organism,of course.
  7. help with ID please

    hi all, a member of my local fossil club is wondering if the specimen he found in the bottom of a dam in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, might be a fossil, or just a mineral. The specimen is about 3 inches round. Sorry, but the 2 photos i have are only of a standard quality. cheers, kevin
