  1. Ammonites and gastropods.

    Hello, sorry to be a pain with all these IDs. I thought itd be easier if I just put all of them in one post. All were found in Northamptonshire, UK. Which is mostly Jurassic in age. Sorry there's no scale, I couldn't find my ruler anywhere. I'll have to upload more images below this. Its been quite some time since I've found ammonites. The land had just been rotavated, and aside from the ammonites, I found some Bivalves, and two golf balls buried. Thanks. These are the first two ammonites, I tried to ID them, but they are incomplete, so it was a difficulty, the closest I think it looks like is Harpoceras. Each are about two centimetres (about 0.8 inches). I saw a neighbour had a very similar rock with two larger ammonites on them that was being used to hold a fence down.
  2. Fossils or not?

    Are these fossils or not?
  3. Ammonite or regular gastropod?

    I hunt fossils in gravel from creeks and the likes. According to the geological survey of similar gravel the age ranges from 200-400 million years ago. I was wondering if you guys could tell me if this was an ammonite or some other sea gastropod. I've found countless other types of fossils but this is the only one like this.
  4. Quartz Snail (Gastropod) Fossil?

    It's been a while since I have been on here. Life got in the way of me looking for rocks and fossils. The property that I have access to hunt in has several seasonal creeks on it. This was found in a dry creek bed. I didn't think a lot about it as these type of "snail" fossils are the main thing that I find. When looking at it closer at home, I realized that the fossil itself seems to be replaced with quartz? The surface has been worn down by weathering and by the creek flow during the spring. I am not sure that the images convey the crystal properly, but the clear, crystal structure is there. Is this a common thing in fossils? It is the first that I have found. It was found outside of Willow Springs, Howell County, Missouri, USA and measures 21mm. There is a second "snail" still encased in the rock. The part that is visible is also quartz.
  5. It was raining this morning, so my best site was near Yaxley. The fossils really pop there when wet. In one hour of searching I had 13 fragments of ammonite. I thought it was 14, but when washing them realised one was a miffed snail, who is now in the garden. Mostly the ammonites are pyratised, and preserve sutures and ornamentation well. I found 8 crinoid sections, including round ossicles - I normally only find star shaped ones.
  6. Fossil Ridge Colorado no clue

    Three photos of this strange find. My son and I found this as is on a mountain trail on Fossil Ridge Mountain. I have no idea what this is, I would guess it is some sort of shelled sea creature, a little smaller than a baseball. If someone could enlighten me, my so and I would be grateful. Thanks for looking!
  7. Tiny shell

    A few months ago I won an auction presented by @RJB. In it was a sand dollar that was encrusted by some coquina, so I worked on getting most of it off. When poking around in the stuff earlier this morning, I found a tiny little shell, just barely over 1/2 mm in size & very fragile. I got a couple pics of it with my dino lite, but to see detail I had to get creative. Had the onboard LEDs turned way down, but it was still washing it out, so I took 1 pic & shut them off. I then used a small LED flashlight with weak batteries & got a couple decent enough pics with some side lighting. Hopefully this will be enough for an ID. I really have no way to take an edge on view at this point with it being so fragile. The 1st pic shows some nice ribbing detail. Unfortunately, I have no idea where it's from & I don't think he knew either.

  17. Hello everyone, I hope you are all well! does anyone recognise this? Is it something oldish or is it a relatively new species? It was found in a stream in Surrey in England (Great Britain) near the Wealdon Clay areas. The second image is 6 pictures but normal exposure (bar The ultraviolet one) on the left and then with an x-ray filter on the right of the black dots down the middle. The first image is both sides , except for I cut and paste the picture on ; it’s not two separate ones. and excuse the metric system ruler! Kind regards
  18. Gastropod Rescue

    Here is a nice little gastropod cluster on the matrix that was rescued from a construction site along Reynard Way in San Diego. I think they are in the family Naticidae and are possibly Polinices galianor. Anyone have any thoughts? I'd love to nail it down more specifically if possible. Naticidae "Reynard Way" ~3-1.5Mya Pliocene to Early Pleistocene San Diego Formation San Diego County, CA Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Mollusca Class: Gastropoda -- Subclass: Caenogastropoda Order: Littorinimorpha Family: Naticidae Genus: Favor Polinices? Species: Galianor
  19. Fossil Snail

    Any thoughts or species for this fossil snail that I found in south central Ga, I think the deposits in this area are 35 million years and younger. This snail was busted out of a void or crack in a larger rock.

  21. First Fossil Found!

    Hello, I am new to geology and fossil hunting. I have very little knowledge in this area and would love for somone to help me identify it! It is a snail incased in sedimentary rock, the shell itself has also turned to stone it seems. The snail is about 2 inches across, the rock itself it 4 inches at its longest point. I found it on surface level, on the side of a trail in the forest. I live in Montreal QC.
  22. Hello. I am have little to no experience in collecting, but have always been fascinated by the beauty and the story of "nature" that exists and existed on our planet. Yesterday, I found this little beauty in my back yard while weeding our landscaping areas that are lined with river rock. We live in Indiana and we had this rock delivered about 17 years ago. Hoping to get some insight other than what my novice research is turning up. Thank you in advance for any input.
