  1. Possible fossil find. Need ID

    Bottom is the size of a Kennedy Half Dollar. Found in a river bed of the Los Padres Nat'l forest in Southern California. Have found other fossils here in the past. Mostly clam shell fossils. Thanks! Dave
  2. Prepping And using water

    So i spray little bit of water on my fossils and scrub with a toothbrush. But sometimes these appear orange marks. Not sure if i just did not see them before. I prep under a normal ikea lamp. I have heard the sun can discolor fossils. My curtains cover the Windows in the room. The water really helps me see better detail. I just wanna be 100% safe
  3. How to remove salt water

    So i got alot of fossils from sweden from the ocean altough i dont remember if its salt water or not. But if it is how do i remove it? heard that it slowly destroy the fossils from the inside what can i do? Im also going to put glue on one of the finds is that going to mess up when i clean the salt water?
  4. I've got a pair of sandals that usually work great for creeks... but a couple of weeks ago I went to creek that was full of stones that continually worked inside my sandals. So, I would like another shoe that will keep stones out for use in creeks like that one. Anyone know of a good, not too expensive, water shoe for creek use that might fit the bill?
  5. Fossil hunting tools

    I am always interested in hearing about (and seeing photos of) tools used for fossil hunting. I have used all sorts and I currently received a new device for underwater viewing. It is called a Bathyscope.
  6. Found Fossil

    I am new to the Fossil Forum! Hello!! My daughter and I were taking our daily walk near our home, which has a drainage reservoir nearby. We found this rock which at closer glance consisted of several fossil impressions. At first we thought it was a fish's fin but after some brief research I believe it may be some sort of Byrozoan. Can anyone help ID?
  7. Trace fossils or water residue?

    So- been starting to look for my first conodonts in black shale in the Kansas City area and I commonly see what appears to be mineral deposits left when water seeps through layers, then dries, but these are in winterset limestone (as best I can tell) and while they look similar, maybe these are trace fossils? thanks for taking a look! Bone
  8. I searched every body of water on Rockd to see any sedimentary deposits that are near me; there is nothing. Everything is metamorphic, but then I came across Lytle Creek. I wen't on the map on Rockd and checked and it said something about sediment deposits. The info was too confusing; I couldn't find any easier info.
  9. Waders ?

    Anyone have any they recommend? Something easy to slip on and flexible. Debating the hip waders or something simple to slip on over boots.
  10. No Idea Where to Start...

    My 5 year old found this near a river edge in Southern Ontario. Any ideas?
  11. Bones Found in Ocean Cave

    Hey guys, I've found some bones and want to see if anyone is able to identify them for me. So while snorkeling off the coast of Rarotonga in the Cook Islands I found a spine of some sort. It was resting inside the opening of a cave. The length of spine that was visible to me was about half a metre maybe just over half a metre long. Each single vertebrae was about 20cm wide. Please view the photo provided. (Sorry I'm having trouble uploading the photo, I'm gonna try again in the morning..) Any help or input is greatly appreciated thank you
  12. Western NY fossil

    Hello! Back again with something I found while looking through my room. I can't remember exactly where I found it except that it was certainly in the Western portion of NYS. I most likely found it in a lake or river It's probably fairly simple to identify, but I don't know this stuff well myself or even what to search for online. Thanks for help!
  13. Looks a bit like a finger

    First time I've found one of these. From Norway close to a place with a lot of trilobites, if that helps. There may be more of the fossil hidden in the rock, but I'm a bit scared about hammering around it. Any idea what it might be?
  14. Creek bed fossil

    I found this fossil a few weeks ago. It was in a creek bed that flows during the wet season but has pools in the dry. I know the creek has sandstone, but it also looks like it has limestone and possibly slate. There is also a lot of rocks containing rust. This fossil appears to be stained with it. I am located in Western Kentucky near Hopkinsville. One side looks like it is ribs. The other side is smooth and one part is unusually round. There are pockets that appear to be filled with sediment that has solidified into rock. I've added pictures from all sides and others with measurements. I will add them as replies since the files are too large. I wish I had more, but this is all I have.
  15. Fossil or pseudofossil ?

    Hallo forum, this was in the craggy field where the sea was once decomposing on the limestone subsoil. It reminds me of Hibolites hastatus. What is your opinion ?
  16. Hello! I am a new mineral enthusiast. I recently purchased an Ammonite. It appears to have water in it. I was wondering if this is a normal occurrence and how old the water might be? Looking forward to hearing everyone’s opinion! Thank you for your time FC408BAE-F931-4BC0-B055-95F91A8E389F.MOV
  17. Ocean Floor Fossil

    I found a fossil amongst a ton of ocean fossils, mostly crinoids but amongst other things. It is a bunch of dots on a rock .Any ideas at to what it is, maybe scales? Nearly all the rocks are fossils.
  18. Worm like fossils, crinoids?

    I found what look like worm fossils among a bunch of crinoid fossils and a few shells. Could you explain what these are? They seem much larger than the crinoid fossils. Seems like one end of the worm and the other end. I found smaller ones of one end, like knob ends.
  19. Shell

    I found a shell that is all grey rock. I would like to know what animal it is. I found it with a bunch of crinoid fossils. I think it's a shell.
  20. What is this piece ?

    Hello, I'm new here. Somebody suggested this site to me for help so here it goes. I found this item about 6-7 years ago in a lake while diving for remains. I ended up finding this. (buried under the sand) I have always wondered what it belonged to, and on another site I posted it nobody really had a clue either. It went from bear claw,boar to bird, etc... Nobody truly had a clue just idea's of what it could be. Now I have been really curious about what this actually is. If anyone has a clue please tell me. I can take more photo's if needed, the hole you see from below, it's not empty, meaning you can see in it but it's not empty would you put a toothpick in it, only a small part would go in . Location found: Italy, lake Bolsena => (picture of lake) Wildlife of Bolsena does seem to range from small to some medium sized birds... I haven't really come across to many other bigger animals there. Also today 15/08/2018 somebody send me this on the other side, this person believes it belongs to a bear (showing her example) of a Marsican Bear
  21. Unidentified fossil

    Hi I'm quite new at fossil hunting. As I was swimming at low tide, far from the shore with my 4 y o. son, he found this rounded pebble in shallow water. I took it, broke it, to find out this (see image). It does look like a fossilize worm. Does anyone have any idea ? The age ? Thanks in advance ! Matt (and Elie, the discoverer...).
  22. Asymmetrical Ripple Marks

    From the album FreeRuin's Finds

    Marks left by the movement of a river or stream in the early Jurassic. Hartford Basin Portland Formation Massachusetts
  23. Cornfield find

    Found this in a field while searching for arrowheads. Anyone have any an ID?
  24. Hello, I have been trying to identify this fossil/rock for my daughter for some time now with no luck. She finds it fascinating and would like to be a Geologist when she grows up. We've been searching through books and online. Asking for your expert help on this one! Any thoughts are greatly appreciated. Origin is unknown it's been a part of my collection for decades at this point. Thank you kindly, LLVB
  25. My daughter and I were out walking in the woods by our house, near a creek and she found a "neat" rock. I took a look at it and it looks like it has several fossils in it (actually impressions, if they are called something different). There are two round impressions, possibly shells, but different than any I have seen. Then there are multiple straight lines running throughout the face of the rock, going in multiple directions. I can take better images, if it is needed. The rock is rather small, only about two inches long. I appreciate any help that I can be given. Thanks, Doug
