Hey everyone! About 2 weeks ago, the VERY generous @AshHendrick gave a portion of his Aurora pile, straight from the mine! I put it around a wood frame in my yard, and have hunted it for hours almost every day. This will be an ongoing thread, I will prob not update every day, but at least weekly. This is the pile. It's bigger than it looks in this pic (about 5.5 x 5.5 feet [a little less than 2 meters i think]) What I do is I sift into the bucket, so I don't go through it twice. I dump it somewhere else. Day 1 Coral Fish vert I think this is coprolite, but I'm not sure Turtle shell Cool rock with turritella another turritella Big steinkern Sorry about the blurry pic, the only one I took of the ray teeth The shark teeth Find of the day shark tooth in matrix the shells. Appreciate ID's That's day 1. more coming
I've had this for years, tucked away & had forgotten about it. Partial sand dollar with beautiful markings. Looking at it now, I see something on the underside that has me curious. At first they (2 of them) looked like small agates, which seemed odd. A closer look shows what appears to be something inside. There are the usual partial shells & probable steinkerns, but these 2 things are different. I've focused mainly on the larger of the two since it's easier to photograph for me, using a few different angles. I'll let you be the judge on them. Am I just seeing thing's or is there really something in there? Found on the NW Oregon coast.
Good morning, all. Here's a few I've been working on today. Found in sw florida, I think I'm in part of the Tamiami formation. Anyway, I think the little snail is possibly Nassarivus Quadredentatus, but not sure. The large grey I think might be Nodipecten, also not positive. The ones that look like little elephant feet I'm pretty sure are a type of coral, but I can't find a match so I could be wrong. The little "toothed" thing I'm thinking is a steinkern, but would like to know for sure, and from what type of critter. Is the button a sponge? And then there's the wormy looking thing, or shell rim? There are 6 objects shown, shots with multiple angles are grouped together. Any help would totally be appreciated!
