Found 5 results

  1. Fossilized Horse Tooth?

    hopefully the pics upload having some troubles. I believe I found a horse tooth, but I would like some confirmation. Thanks for your help.
  2. Jacksonville FL Shark tooth

    Its pretty small-thought it was a bull or dusky or something similar, but I found lots of bull etc teeth today and it doesn't look like any of them. The angles aren't as steep as the bulls or whatever. The tip is missing but it appears to only be missing the tip and some root. Thanks for your help everyone!
  3. Jacksonville GW

    Found a great new beach along the St Johns this past weekend and when night came I knew I was leaving teeth there and had to go back asap. Unfortunately I am not a morning person and the tides this week were early morning or at night. I chose to a night search not knowing how hard it is to surface collect teeth with just a headlamp. Nevertheless in my few hours combing the beach I found over 60 mostly very little teeth, but found this awesome GW to my surprise. The root was sticking out of the sand and I did not think it was a tooth, but had to investigate and I am very glad I did. For sure my best quality tooth so far (IF ONLY THE TIP WERE STILL THERE!!! but they gotta eat too I suppose).
  4. Fish Scales? Plus Shark Tooth

    Apologize for the poor quality pics but I struggled photographing these to show any detail I suspect they are fish scales but that is basically just a guess If anyone wants to take a shot at IDing them go for it The first two pictures are of the same fossil and the third picture is a different one-the second specimen was very difficult to photo cuz its basically a round disk with a raised hump in the middle Lastly if anyone could tell me what type of tooth this is that would be awesome so far its my most complete 'big' (meaning bigger than a fingernail lol) tooth
  5. Back when I visited Seth's fossil fish quarry near Kemmerer, I had the opportunity to explore the outback of SW Wyoming as my wife and I tried to find the blue petrified forest. I had found explicit directions as to how to reach my destination: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwE5AINP5Ck Sep 16, 2012 - Uploaded by Samuel Martin This is a video documenting ACCURATE and HONEST directions to the "Blue Forest" in Sweetwater County ... Please watch this video as it is absolutely true!!! It is 2 minutes long and set to great music. Some of the instructions say odd things like "turn right at a trash can". Now who would expect to see a trash can IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE. We hadn't seen anything along this path but sagebrush for 7 miles! But there it was.My wife was very hesitant to continue on past this as it narrowed and became rough. In fact a slight argument took place by this important landmark. For once I won, even though it was through compromise (she gave me 15 minutes to find our destination). We did make it and as the video shows, you are there when you see all of the holes dug. Our time was spent just surface collecting and time wise, we put a little over an hour attempting to find this blue wood. If one was to visit this site for the purpose of serious collection, BRING A SHOVEL/PICK and I am sure you could put our finds to shame. This first picture shows the shards of wood that litter the ground: A closer look at one of the pieces : This next piece has orange crystals along side the blue wood. Any one able to identify these crystals ? Here is a piece that I would love to clean up a bit. It appears to be a significant piece of a branch. Are there any suggestions on how to do this without harming the specimen? I did experiment with acid. It did little to the matrix but unfortunately turned the blue rock totally white. Now I need a chemist to explain that reaction!!
