  1. Golden Whitby Cannonball

    I’ve been slightly obsessed for a long time now with finding a Whitby cannonball nodule good enough to put the hours of prep work into. I have given up while trying to split many, I have split a lot of empty ones, I have chipped a load while trying to split them. I do have a nice eliganticeras nodule that could potentially polish up but the shape just doesn’t lend itself. I found this at the weekend at Runswick Bay and while it would have been nice to have a split nodule with the positive and negative, I could see the potential in this. The actual ammonite is just a crushed up pyritey mess, but there’s a lovely shiny impression lurking below. So far I have uncovered around half of the impression on top and polished up a very small patch on the side, but it’s slow going. I’m trying to avoid using any power tools for the polishing (because dust) and have a decent selection of wet and dry paper (down to 600 grit). I was wondering if anyone with experience of these cannonballs could tell me how fine you need to go with the wet and dry to get a really nice shine, or if there’s something beyond that I should use?
  2. Whitby area finds

    Here are three pieces that I have found in the Whitby area (North Yorkshire, UK), all found on the same area of beach but at different times. I have posted the top one on here before but was unable to get any firm ID, but the other two are more recent finds. The larger one in the middle I feel bears at least a slight resemblance to fragments of ichthyosaur jaw that I have seen on sale in various places, which I suppose is what has made me hang on to these. Thank you for looking
  3. My Whitby Ammonite Collection

    Hi I decided to display a few of my Whitby ammonites. Most are self found, some bought. Some are prepped by me. Some prepped by other people. One of the ammonites on the top shelf isn’t from Whitby. Guess which. Where’s it from and what is it? I’ll post some close ups in due course. Thanks for looking.
  4. Ichthyosaur Paddle

    Hey guys, I just posted a video where i find the 3rd joining piece to a big partial ichthyosaur paddle that i've found afew months back. Also some other ammonites and other interesting bits along the way. Hopefully you enjoy.
  5. Spiny ammonite from Whitby

    Found this poking out of a block of shale this morning in the Whitby area; managed to keep the remaining spines mostly intact while starting to prep it. Any ideas on genus/species? Would the pyrite around the opening have resulted from the ammonites soft tissue? Thank you for looking
  6. Hey guys, I just posted a new video of me fossil hunting in Whitby the section of cliffs underneath the Abbey. I couldnt believe what my first find was, and where i actually found it
  7. I just made a video which includes a video at the end of my Rarest Fossil find! It's a beautiful fish which are super rare here. Hopefully you enjoy the video if you choose to watch it
  8. Whitby Ammonite

    Daughter and I found this in the Whitby area on Sunday; when I looked again at it last night it had already started to crack open so only needed a few light taps. Am I right in thinking it’s a Hildoceras, and can it be narrowed down further perhaps to Hildoceras Bifrons? Thanks for looking
  9. Whitby area find; bone?

    Just found this at the base of a scree slope somewhere between Runswick Bay and Sandsend (too excited to wait until I’m home to take pictures with a ruler, sorry ) Pretty sure it looks like bone of some sort; can anyone confirm this and maybe identify it? Thanks for looking
  10. Whitby find - bone/wood?

    Just found this on a morning stroll on a beach near Whitby, North Yorkshire, UK. Thought at best it may be a piece of reptile bone, maybe a piece of wood if not. Saw some nice plant material too, we were going to pick the larger pieces up on our return trip but the incoming tide made us decide against it. Thanks for looking
  11. Whitby area find

    Whilst on a long walk today in the Runswick Bay area looking for ammonites to practice my new air pen on, my daughter picked this up and commented that ‘it looks like poo’ (as most nine year olds probably would) As I could offer no other identification for it I thought I’d ask here. There are also a couple of bivalves or similar to the side of it. Thank you for looking
  12. I found these two fossils whilst searching in Whitby a few days ago and could do with some help identifying them. I’m not sure if one appears to be sections of an ammonite and I have no idea about the other.
  13. Here is a video i just uploaded of some of my very recent finds from the Yorkshire Coast. These finds are all unprepared currently and in the video showed as found. They will be completed very soon and should come out lovely The best finds are the articulated string of verts, and very nice looking section of Ichthyosaur Paddle. Hopefully you enjoy.
  14. Fossil fish fin?

    I found this fossil yesterday near Whitby at Runswick Bay. Ammonites and belemnites are common here in the Jurassic cliffs, but I also found this. I am unsure as to whether it may be part of a fish or something else entirely- can anyone help?
  15. Bone from near Whitby ID

    I found this fossil which looks like bone at Saltwick Bay, near Whitby on the Yorkshire Coast. I have been told it maybe ichthyosaur and someone said it maybe a fish bone from a Gyrosteus. Can anyone help me with an ID? The rocks where I found it are definitely Jurassic and I also found lots of ammonites and belemnites in the area. Thanks Holly
  16. Whitby finds

    Found these among other things in the Whitby area today. Everything we’ve found before today has been marine material from the Jurassic. Are they plant material or is such a thing not found here? We only kept the first specimen as the other was large and crumbly. Thank you for looking
  17. Whitby Vertebrae

    Just opened this nodule on a beach in the Whitby area, I can’t help thinking that it looks like a couple of verts, can anyone confirm this and maybe suggest a species? I’ll put better pics up when I get home if needed. Thank you for looking
  18. Whitby Coprolites

    We’ve seen a few of these things before in shale type rocks at Whitby, could they be coprolites? A couple of other finds from today too; a belemnite with pyrite phragmocone and a nice ammonite that I split
  19. Fossil Lobster

    Here's part of a upper lias fossil lobster, i found this at Whitby on the coast before the Covid lockdown earlier this year. I believe the species is Glyphea I do enjoy looking for fossil lobster nodules on the yorkshire coast in England so i'm trying to figure out exactly what i have here. I was told this is a left cephalothorax. So do i have a head and 2 front feet? Or is it the head from a side view. If any body can find any useful diagrams/pictures of what i have it'd be much appreciated. Thanks Liam
  20. Whitby Belemnites

    Found these Belemnites today on a beach in the Whitby area, is it possible to pin the larger one particularly down to an exact species? It’s now the best in my daughter’s collection as it’s got so much of the phragmocone still attached (albeit glued back in places) @TqB ? Thanks for looking
  21. Tiny Belemnite?

    Found this on a beach full of belemnites, however I’ve never seen one this small. Could this be a belemnite and if so would it have been a juvenile or a different species to the larger ones we normally find? Thank you for looking
  22. Whitby finds

    As we haven’t been able to get out to the coast collecting we’ve been going through my daughter’s collection and trying to label her finds in the same way as her fossils from various shops. Many have already been identified here, but here are a few that I was hoping to get help with. I know all but one are ammonites but I was hoping for more specific than that. All are from the stretch of Yorkshire coast from Staithes down to Saltwick Bay Thanks in advance
  23. Monster ammonite prep

    Once again I slack in posting things on here. last week I decided to dig out a very large ammonite I found last year. It’s a Phylloceras Heterophyllum. Quite rare around here, and to get one as big as this is, is even rarer. It weighed an absolute tonne but worth it. All the prep work is done, all that’s left now is to rebuild some small sections and cracks. It’ll be a stunning piece once’s finished.
  24. Whitby, ON Trilobites

    Took this opportunity to head to the shores of Lake Ontario in Whitby and find some trilobites, among other stuff! Edit: Kane corrected this - they're nautiloids. Cheers!
  25. This was on a larger block with burrows and I have chiseled it down. I found this on the Yorkshire Coast near Whitby in the sandstone beds where you can find trace fossils including dinosaur footprints. I’ve been told it’s a dinosaur footprint by some people and others burrow marks. Wondered what your thoughts were. thanks
