  1. I found these Goniatites in the British coal measures. Would anyone like to prepare these for me in return for some fossils? I have many fossil types available. Please note, the inner whorls of these Goniatites are almost impossible to prep, so it would be best just to expose the outer whorl. I am not sure how well these will prep, but I have decided it’s worth a try to see how they will turn out. Thanks, Daniel
  2. I realized how much I enjoy seeing the posts of "virtual trips to the museum" and rock shops and shows. I thought I'd do a more thorough post on my recent trip to the UK and the Natural History Musuem in London. It was so huge and amazing and wonderful, that although I did not quite get to explore it as much as i would have liked, I am thrilled i got to go. So here's a little tour to whet your appetite for travel (or just armchair travel, if that's your thing!) . Believe me, there is MUCH MUCH more to see than this little bit! First of all - it IS a catheral! To science! Where the saints and angel figures would be are all animals, mythological, extinct and extant: And then the grand Hallway: And yes, it feels like you are in a Harry Potter movie: with whales: Aside from the imposing whale, there are also these amazing creatures on the main floor: Turn into the first hallway and you enter the Hall of Marine Repties: With the first articulated plesiosaur found by Mary Anning: More marine reptiles: SO many!! And these were just a FEW! And then off a side hallway was a great fossil specimen display, I only took pics of a few, but here are some UK fossils Then we wound our way down another maze like corridor and ran into these creatures (plus a few others not pictured here...): And then on to the Hall of Dinosaurs! : What is interesting is the dino skeletons are mostly elevated, so you are looking up at them, the lighting throwing interesting shadows. It's an odd choice for display, but I guess it means they don't have to put glass around each dino since it is out of reach of curious hands..... A few were ground level: My favorite dino has always been Parasaurolophus (partly because it's just fun to say Parasaurolophus...) And I was happy to see this little guy ( Coelophysis) - one of the dinosarus found out at Ghost Ranch in New Mexico (if you are out there, go to the little museum onsite...it's very nice) The next Hall was their "best of the best" treasury, in which was something I've wanted to see for a long time: the London Specimen Archaeopteryx: Last but not least was the Hall of Minerals - a massive hall full of cases of every mineral and rock in every from from all over the world. You could spend days in there alone: Just a few lovely items from there : And this is one of only 7 Mars meteorites found on earth : And thus concludes our visit to the musuem, I recommend a hot chocolate from the shop just down the street ( you can see the copper dome from their upstairs window)
  3. Dinosaur Claw?

    I recently did a bad thing and took a spontaneous punt on a claw without much info. I'm wondering if anyone could tell me anything at all about the look of it? Does it even look dinosaurian? Due to the size & condition, I wouldn't be shocked if it was a replica of some sort, even though I can't find anything close online. I just can't make a decent judgement call on it being fake from eyeballing these photos. The seller was obviously not the collector of the specimen (they couldn't even positively identify it as a claw) and was open about having no knowledge of the details surrounding it; all I have to go on, is that the seller was on the South coast of England and other fossils they had for sale included mostly British ammonites, Ichthy and Plesiosaur verts. They also described it as "quite heavy". The photos aren't particularly clear, as they're from the seller; I will update with better when it arrives. I've brightened/enhanced them the best I could, so there are distortions in the detail, and the colours/sheen might not be quite true to life:
  4. Help with identification

    Hi, I wondered if anyone could please help with the identification of this bone. It was found on St Anne's Beach in the UK. It has a claw like prominence midway down the shaft. The bone on approx 10.5cm long. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
  5. Is this an ichthyosaur vertebra?

    I recently found this large vertebra lying in the silt at the edge of a recently excavated lake near Cambridge, UK. I thought it might be from an ichthyosaur, but am unsure because I am very new to this, and it seems far larger than others I have seen at 11cm/4.5inch diameter. Could anyone tell me for sure what this is? Many thanks P.S. the images are too large so I will upload in different posts
  6. Carboniferous arachnid?

    I found this in South Yorkshire, UK today in the coal measures (upper Carboniferous). I suspect it may be an arachnid though I am not sure. Please can anyone confirm if it is or isn’t an arachnid? Plant fossils are abundant at the site where this was found. Thanks, Daniel
  7. Fossil id, uk.,somerset

  8. Sandstone fossil

    Hi I would really appreciate some of your opinions on what this fossil is. I found it in my garden when cutting stones to make a pond. All of the boulders came from this area. I have done a little research on the local geology here and it seems the bedrock is from the triassic. many thanks

  10. Jaw? bone from Essex UK

    Hello, I found this mystery bone along the Burnham on Crouch river in Essex, UK. Any idea what it could be? Eocene and Pleistocene deposits in the area. Thanks. Jay
  11. Pit spoil flora

    These are a few pieces from the British coal measures of Derbyshire UK , in all the coal measure spoils and opencasts i have looked for fossils in i have not found many examples of Pecopteris and this is a first for me from this spoil site, the detail on it is poor as the nodule was open and in a wet area. Asterophyllites Cheers John

  14. Shark tooth ID help!

    Hello everyone, it’s me again - I posted on here not long ago about 5 (great white) teeth I needed identifying, and I was extraordinarily impressed with the results, thank you again for that! This time around, I have 4 more teeth I need help with, as I’m super curious about what they belonged to, I have two regular ish looking teeth and one very flat one(??), All three are quite small. In addition to those 3 I also have one which is still in the rock, but very visible, and I haven’t really been able to compare it to anything I have already - its about the size of an average great white tooth, if that helps. I apologise about the shadows, the sun is really out today!
  15. Some more Jurassic Brachiopods.

    Hello everyone, I got a few brachiopods from a trade with @will stevenson , I don't have much info on them other than that they used to be part of a Victorian collection and are from Wiltshire, as well as them being Jurassic. Very curious as to what they are, any info is appreciated. Brach 1: Brach 2: Brach 3, Very similar to 2: Brach 4:
  16. Hi all, This limb bone was found along the River Crouch in Essex, UK. Pleistocene and Eocene deposits in the area. Any ideas where it could have come from? Thanks. Jay
  17. Mammal tooth from Essex UK

    Hello, This tooth was found along Mayland Creek in Essex, UK. Generally Eocene (London Clay) and some relatively modern Pliocene/Pliestocene deposits in the area. Is it likely to be a fossil, and what animal could it be from? Thanks in advance. Jay
  18. What's this crazy thing!?

    Hello all! So I found this oddball in an ice age clay cliff-face yesterday. When I was cleaning it tonight I noticed some unusual radiating lines coming from one corner on each of this cube-thing's long edges. I Took some quick snaps while wet and I'll post some dry ones in a mo! What weirdy beardy thingy is this? Thank you, all knowing Fossil Forum!
  19. Strange one

    Hi, this one was found fallen off of the cliffs of Hunstanton, UK It looks to be some kind of fin? I could be wrong though The rock is 5cm long at its longest point and the fossil about 1.5cm shorter Hoping to hear back about it!
  20. What is this

    Hi, my sister found this on the beach of Hunstanton, Norfolk last year whilst on holiday We are unsure on what it is, but we think it may be an imprint of some kind of anemone or coral, not sure though The whole rock is concave and about 4.5cm across I will attach a close up of the pattern in the replies
  21. May be a long shot

    Hi, i know this may be a long shot, but i found this fossil in the cliffs of Hunstanton, Norfolk, UK It is in a red stone, and was originally in a much larger boulder Any ideas as to what it could belong to would be greatly helpful The rock is about 9cm at its longest point, and the fossil is roughly 7cm as it goes into the rock, and would be longer if not broken.
  22. What is this?

    Hello, I'm wondering what the fossils in this rock are. there is a large one surrounded by multiple small ones at different angles within the rock, and the fossils look very mushroom-like, although i may be wrong. The whole rock is around 2.3cm on its longest side, the largest fossil is about 1cm in diameter and the rest are all about 0.5cm or less. found in the gravel of a drive in Skegness, Lincolnshire so it may have come from elsewhere. hope to hear back
  23. Ooo... is dis bone?!

    Hello - l just found this amongst the loose rocks on the beach. It's a small village on the coast of Yorkshire. And isn't accessible except by scaling the cliff or walking a few miles along the beach. The cliffs here are made of clay deposited during the last ice age clay - so they're a real mix of rock types. This block was pre broken. I saw some light shapes on the reverse and found these when I flipped it over. I want to believe these are vertebrae so bad! But I turn to the immense collective knowledge of the fossil forum What have I got here?
  24. Hi everyone! Last week I went camping for 3 days with my cousin and her parents in Lyme Regis (first time on the jurassic coast) and managed to persuade them to join me in a little fossil hunting! On the first day we went to Lyme Regis beach and to cut a long story short, we had no luck. all I found was half of a compressed ammonite in the shale which I then realised I lost when we got back to the campsite! I wasn't bothered though as the shale is so crumbly that it would not have lasted very long anyway. We did however have a really nice time on the beach and saw lots of huge ammonites in the rocks and the ammonite graveyard which was amazing. The next day was allocated to the museum and looking around the fossil shops. Of course I would have loved to have spent the day searching for fossils, but I only tagged along to this holiday! On the last day we went to Charmouth beach in the hope of better luck. My hope was diminished when we saw the hundreds of people all traipsing the beach looking for fossils. A lot of them had hammers and seemed to be hammering indiscriminately at rocks however, and most of those looking on the beach were just walking and staring at their feet. It became obvious quite quickly that this was not an effective method at this site and so I spent that day on my hands and knees. Belemnites were abundant (I really should have stopped picking them up but I couldn't resist) as were tiny ammonite fragments. I only found 3 nicely exposed whole ammonites though and one encased in rock (I might buy some tools to prep it myself - just got my university scholarship money, why spend it on fees!) And then came the excitement: all the previous week I had been preoccupied about this trip to the Jurassic coast and the odd chance of finding an ichthyosaur vertebra, without ever thinking I would. But, a few hours into the trip, what should I see laying on the ground by my feet? An ichthyosaur vertebra!! I just grabbed it and had to sprint back to my cousin down the beach to show her! It more than made up for not finding a larger or more complete ammonite. All in all we had a great time, I can't wait to go back! Some of my nicer finds Some bivalves My only nice whole ammonites Ammonite fragment filled with crystal, there's a lovely ring of golden pyrite showing around the crystal too Crinoid stems The ichthyosaur vertebra!
  25. Local river finds

    I found these on the local riverbank while my daughter was busy picking up a load more Carboniferous rugose corals. In the North East of England. Are they anything of interest?
