  1. I cracked open a nodule last year on the Yorkshire Coast and it contained this Pseudolioceras Ammonite. It had this weird brown stuff all over it, was this the shell? As found I tried to clean it up and clear the middle with my pen.
  2. very nice outline of shell in rock...

    while on one of my hunts here in the gravel I found this it has a really nice outline of a shell in it gravel pile West of Houston Texas ...gravel from Brazos River. any ideas of what type it is?.
  3. Taking a guess at this one. Is it an endocast/steinkern of some kind of shell? Found at Myrtle Beach. Thanks! - Paula
  4. Can you tell what these are please?

    Hi all I know nothing about fossils but have been tasked with finding out what two fossils are. Please see image attached. Are they ammonites? They were found in Pembrokeshire. Many thanks in advance for your help.
  5. I have a shell that I had found a while back and only now have I noticed that it has an outer layer that looks very similar to mother of pearl, this made the shell quite unique among many others that I had found, but sadly this layer is highly fragile and flakes off from any minor disturbances. I was wondering if there is any way to preserve this unique feature of the shell with some kind of coating before it is too late, any information is welcome. Thank you.
  6. Fossil ID part 2

    I found this when I was a kid. I have no clue what it is. Could be just a weird rock I guess. It looks to me like it could be some sort of a shell maybe? Any ideas? I will post a couple photos in the comments since I can only upload one photo at a time.
  7. Dissertation help!

    I'm doing a dissertation project on the Wanstum Channel, a historic sea channel in East Kent dividing the Isle of Thanet and Kent. The channel was formed by rising sea levels at the end of the last glacial period however had silted up during the medieval age. My work focuses primarily on the physical geography and the lasting legacy of the channel. However whilst undertaking some borehole work roughly 100m from the River Stour (what remains of the Wantsum Channel) I have uncovered a small shell piece fragment around 2-3mm in diameter. If i could have this fragment identified it would mean I could use the fragment as a proxy for climatic and environmental conditions of the time, which will make a great talking point! I'll be able to take further photos tomorrow with rulers to get exact measurements, but any help will be great. Cheers
  8. Found on beach...Scales? Shell?

    I found these on the beach in Dunedin, FL. They are thin and flaky and fragile. They have a raised ridge on one edge. 1”-2” long (25-50 mm). They don’t seem to be fossilized but I am so curious as to what they are. My initial thought was maybe a type of shell or part of a fish? I really don’t know...
  9. Hi all, This is an unusual looking find. Measures about 1 3/4 x 1 1/2 x 1 inch and found on the beach in Tampa Bay, Florida. It is hard as rock or shell, has striations running down and a twig sticking out of the middle. The bottom has tube worms, shell material and a barnacle. My educated guess is a fossilized plant root, like a mangrove (pneumatophores). Or a twig through a seashell like how the native Indians made tools that way by putting a hole in the shell and putting it through a branch and letting it grow in it tight. I have photographed several angles. What do you think it is?
  10. Fossilized shell ?

    Hi again today, here is something what really is not concretion. lol. Its from somewhere the southern coast of Europe beach, dont know exectly. The second object has a surface similar to that of the raw agate crust, I try it to catch it on photos... So what you can think about it ?
  11. For possible future sales/trades I’m wondering if there are people interested in miocene - pliocene fossils similar to these on the picture below. For trades I would mainly be interested in shark teeth material or micro matrix. Please reply or send me a Pm.
  12. ID possible Shark tooth and Shell

    Thank you!
  13. what the heck?...is this anything??

    Is this anything?....one part of it is shell at least most of the outer side pretty worn though or fossilized. now for the inside...no freaking idea....there is an impression of some kind gravel load west of houston texas, brazos river.
  14. lol...now this one fooled me but good

    this one fooled me good really thought I had something but then I turned it over..nature sure is sneeky
  15. Shell, seed or...?

    "digging" around in some micro matrix from the Wellington fm out of Jackson Co, Oklahoma (Permian age) & found this. Not sure if it's a shell, seed or alien life form. The shell or life form is what I'm hoping (they'll be keepers).. the seed.. probably not so much. Found all sorts of Xenacanthus shark teeth bits along with a few tiny whole ones. But this thing is different. It was sticking out of a bit of matrix that I had to break apart, so I'm hoping it's old & not just some fluke. Only 3 mm in size (ruler marks are in mm), it seems pretty ornamental. Anyhoo, without further delay, the pics.
  16. Gift from the Sea

    From the album OBX

    It's amazing what washes up on the Outer Banks - modern sea shells, sea glass, bits of wrecked ships and fossils, too! These shells embedded in sandstone washed ashore on Hatteras Island, NC, from the Pleistocene sandstone shelf on which the island rests.
