  1. Carboniferous unknown

    Hell All I was going through some micro-matrix from the quarry in Soignies when I found this tiny object. I'm not sure it's a fossil but I wanted to check and it seems to be too symmetrical to be geologic. The piece is 2,5 mm in size. It's found in marine deposits togheter with crinoid parts, trilobites... It's from the Tournaisian (Carboniferous). What do you all think? Picture one shows one side and the second picture the opposite side. It's round and nearly perfectly symmetrical. Thanks already
  2. Crinoids in epoxy

    This is more a piece of artwork than a prep job. In my area they excavate Belgian blue hardstone and is used a lot in buildings. This is a durable crinoidic limestone from the early carboniferous ( Tournaisian ). I've colected multiple times in one of those quarries, and in some layers you can find countles crinoid stems. Now I had the idea to use a discarded piece of this crinoidic limestone and make a hole in the middle , I filled up the hole with transparant epoxy in multimple layers and between each layer I droped a few of the crinoid stem's that can be found in the stone. I pollished both sides of the piece so that you could see through the stone and the fossils in the epoxy to create the idea that you can see through the stone and see the fossils in the limestone.
  3. A nice Spring day and a return one of my favourite areas. Headed out to the Eastern slopes west of Calgary. Begins with a 45 minute bicycle ride along Canyon Creek. Then the physically hard part...an hour or so climbing through the forested lower slopes to get above the tree line. Then another 4 hours diligently scrambling around exploring the area (yellow circle on photo). Although the yellow circle looks small its the size of a couple soccer pitches. Fossils are from under the cliffs. Cliffs have fossil layers but too precarious to access.

  5. Last week I got a written permission from a quarry nearby that allowed me to visit the location, and I was allowed to bring a few extra people. So I a friend and his wife where going to join me on the field trip, they are particularly interested in trilobites and this might be one of the best spots in Belgium to find some, although complete specimens are still hard to find. The rendez vous point was the parking of the quarry, so I left early in the morning in not so great weather conditions: gray clouds, rain and lots of wind. I got to the place at 9 AM and waited a while for my 2 friends. Once everybody was ready we made the descent to the fossiliferous layers with of course some stops on the way down to make a few pictures. The rain and wind of the past week had an impact on the cliffs in the quarry, and at a few locations some rocks had fallen on the roads that led down in the pit. This is where I made my first finds, and this already made my day. In the middle of the road between some small rocks that fell of a higher part I picked up a complete but slightly damaged trilobite (Phillipsia ornata belgica) This was already one of the best finds I ever did at this location, but it only got better, A few feet next to the trilobite I found a primitive shark tooth! And we still had to get to the fossiliferous part of the quarry. Once at the spot that we were going to prospect we dropped our bags and started to search the slope and wall for corrals, brachiopods and trilobite parts. The rain cleaned up most of the slope, so the corals and brachiopods made easy pickings . the trilobite pygidiums where scarce, but we each still found a few of them. This is where we spent the rest of the day, until the slope became too muddy. We also tried to free a few rocks from the wall in the hope to get some extra stuff and this delivered mainly a few extra pygidiums. Here in the slope I found my 2nd more or less complete trilobite, but sadly half of the scale was lost in the mud. Still leaving the imprint in the matrix. The heavy wind did offer some funny notes during the day were we had to run after bags or boxes that where taken away by the wind. This trip proved to be one of the best I ever made at this location, hopefully I can make a few extra visits here in 2016. more pictures of the discoveries will follow ... Kevin
