  1. 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!
  2. A fossil

    I found this fossil on a vacation in shallow water at a lake a few years ago and have always been wondering what it was. I'm no fossil expert so I have never been able to identify it.
  3. Hey everyone!! So I posted last week (sorry had the wrong link there for a minute!) - but my mom found some interesting things in our creek and it was suggested they might be nautiloid fragments! So obviously we went back to look for more. We found a ton of rocks that are similar. I think a lot of what we found might just be concretions but here are a few that seemed interesting to me and I'd love another opinion on! They all have some sort of hole/dimple which I'm not sure is something that occurs in concretions? If it helps - they were all found in the creek bed in Groveland, Livingston County, NY and a geologist friend said she believes the rock on the creek bed appears to be shale slate. I'm at work without a ruler right now, so I had to use the Mary Anning post card I have on my desk for scale haha. It is 6 inches (15.24 cm). I promise I'll get a ruler soon if I'm gonna keep asking for help!! Thanks in advance!!
  4. This may be a silly question, but how do I know if something is actually a fossil or just a weird shaped rock? Also, if anyone knows - how do these weird shaped rocks form in the slate/shale if they aren't fossils? Not looking for an ID (yet!), just trying to figure out how all the weirdly shaped rocks came to be! I went hiking with my mom in our backyard because she found what we believe to be nautiloid fragments (link to ID thread) and we wanted to see if we could get more. Well we found lots of oddly shaped rocks, but are unsure if they are actually anything. If it helps, we are in a creek in Groveland, Livingston County, New York. A geologist friend said that creek bed looks like shale slate. The only thing we pulled out that I have pictures of right now is a long wormy looking one. One picture of it in the rock and three after we got it out. I haven't been able to take any pictures with size reference sorry I don't have it with me right now, but from memory I'd estimate it's at least ~12-15 cm (5-6 inches). Thanks!
  5. Hi all! I'm a hobby hunter who normally visits Penn Dixie near Buffalo NY for my fossils where they tell me what everything is if I can't ID it myself. But my mom went for a hike recently in our creek (Groveland, Livingston County, NY, USA) and came back with these three fossils. At least, we're pretty sure they're fossils! I'm sorry that the measurements are in inches, my mom doesn't have anything with metric measurements on it. Each square is 1inch (~2.5cm) I tried to give her the best instructions to take pictures like the pinned post, and this is what I got lol. I'm going to attach them each to separate messages so they don't get all jumbled. Here's the first one:
  6. Is it possibe to ID?

    Hello everyone! I am an amateur fossil hunter, I live near Lake Erie and go there several times a week looking for fossils, quartz, anything of interest. A while ago I found a single vertebra right at the shore, and picked it up immediately. Upon closer examination I saw it was fossilized (or at least I think it is! Please correct me if you think otherwise, I'm still learning!) I love having things like this in my collection but I do understand that identifying much of anything from one vertebra would be very difficult, but I figured I would post here anyways just in case. If anyone knows what this could be from or wants more information, please post below.
  7. Chisel Type Suggestions

    I am looking to purchase a couple chisels that will work well in the shale typically found in western New York. I have read several threads and have a general idea of the sizes that I’d need, but I wanted to be sure I got the right type of chisels. Should I get cold chisels or masonry/brick chisels? From what I’ve heard elsewhere online, hardware stores usually say that cold chisels are for metal but I’ve seen them recommended for fossils in several threads. Are either options okay to use? I’m mostly asking in terms of safety.
  8. Devonian Fossil

    I was a little unsure of this fossil I found at Penn Dixie in western New York. It’s from the Devonian shale. I’d appreciate any help or information.
  9. Is it bone?

    When I pick it up, the concave side, (photo 1) sticks to my fingers. It's been cleaned with a brush and water. There is nothing on it, but it sticks to my skin (when dry.) Also, when I get it wet, it almost immediately sucks up the water and dries out. Grid measurements are cm, it's ~3mm thick. Found it on the surface among a ton of crinoids and corals. It's obviously not Devonian, and probably not even a fossil. Seems to me like skull fragment?
