  1. Modern or fossil oyster?

    I found this in the Post Oak Creek near Sherman, TX today. I kind of think it looks like a modern oyster, but I found it with many, many well preserved fossil shells. How do I tell it is a fossil vs modern? It has barnacles on it. See far right and far left. You can see the muscle scar so clearly. It was found with these other fossilized shells in the creek bed.
  2. Post Oak Creek fossil ID

    I found these in Post Oak Creek near Sherman city limits. The formation within the creek is Alluvium which is Quaternary, Holocene, Cenozoic (in reverse order) I believe. It is surrounded by Austin chalk which is cretaceous. I have no idea what they are. I’m certain I’ve seen a modern version of this while Scuba diving, but for the life of me I can’t remember what it was or where I saw it. They look a little like a barnacle, but not exactly, maybe a tube worm colony? Please let me know your thoughts.
  3. Septarian nodule?

    I found the coolest rock I may have ever found today while out hunting for fossils. I hit the mother load on the fossils, but the rock is absolutely more fascinating at this point. More on the fossils later. I think the rock is a fragment of a septarian nodule that seems to be comprised almost entirely of what I believe may be aragonite and maybe a tiny bit of calcite. I found it in Post Oak Creek practically in the Sherman city limits. The formation in the creek is Alluvium which is Quaternary, Holocene, Cenozoic (in reverse order) I believe. It is surrounded by Austin chalk which is cretaceous. Can anyone help confirm the identity or tell me otherwise? Also, can anyone educate me about septarian nodules of this nature in the Alluvium or do you think It came out of the Austin Chalk? Any help our input is appreciated. Close up so you can see the crystle color and crystal form. Is it araganite? @ynot I know you’re a crystle/mineral guy. What do you think? Any idea how it formed? I saw a different kind of septarian nodule last week at Fossilmania in Glen Rose that came from the Main Street formation in Dallas county that were formed around ammonites. These look pretty different than those though.I’d call this the top down look. Side 1 of 5. It looks a bit like a thin separating ridge or wall/fin like structure that is also aragonite looking or a brown crystal. Side 2. There are some kind of clear yellow crystals mixed with the brown with a different shape to them. There’s even some amber looking color in there. Side 3 Side 4 Side 5
  4. Shark Teeth

    From the album Post Oak Creek, Sherman, Texas

    Sharks teeth I found in Post Oak Creek, Sherman, Texas
  5. Post Oak Creek help identify

    Post Oak Creek, Sherman, Texas. Period is crustaceous - found this in the water while digging and scooping from the bottom. A guy who was down in the creek said it looks like it's a land animals tooth. The size is about the size of a quarter, if I set it on top of a quarter it's the same length. I found a ton of sharks teeth I was trying to post in a gallery to share, but I guess I haven't figured that out yet because I don't see them LOL. Thank you for your help. Laura
  6. curious about this one, perhaps a tooth?

    Recently went fossil hunting for the first time in Sherman, TX at post oak creek. I found loads of shark teeth, but this one though small caught my eye. Doesn't have a root, perhaps it is just a tip; but the general shape is different from all the shark teeth I found. So maybe it is something else (hopefully not just a rock) It is pretty small. Attaching a couple of pictures on from top view, side.
  7. I came upon this beauty in Post Oak Creek, Sherman; Grayson Co. Texas this past weekend which looks like a very large Armadillo scute. I didn't think that they migrated into the north Texas region? It measures 1 1/2" long and 1 1/8" wide. Cretaceous, Lower Austin / Upper Eagle Ford Formation
