  1. UPDATE: I politely messaged the seller with the correct ID and have received a very friendly reply thanking me and that there was no intent to deceive. They say they'll change the listing when back from a foreign holiday. Described as a dinosaur egg with worm infestation, and with a very high price tag! It's obviously a coral colony, probably Diphyphyllum sp.
  2. Crocodile Scute

    I’ve wanted a croc scute for quite a while, reptile especially croc remains are rare on the yorkshire coast so i’m pleased to find one today. I found it wearing out of a slab, it’s a partial but not complaining! Possibly Steneosaurus
  3. Not really sure Nodulised is even a word but I found it formed in a round nodule today, this is my first time cracking open one and finding a vert usually they have some part poking out. It was fresh from the cliff and had no indication on what was inside. A real nice surprise. Quite big and a nice split too. Comparison between a smaller recent vert.
  4. First croc find

    Thought you might all like to see this. I was super pleased to finally find some croc because it’s rare on the Yorkshire Coast. I noticed this worn vertebrae wearing out of a boulder. As found Extracted Chuffed
  5. Today i carried this battlefield back up the cliff. I’ve been looking for a decent fresh one for a while. Unfortunately they are all quite heavy, like this one! I think a bit of pen work and it will reveal even more! anyone know the species?
  6. Carboniferous arachnid?

    I found this in West Yorkshire, UK recently in coal mining waste from the Pennine Lower Coal Measures formation (Westphalian A, upper Carboniferous). On the rock, there are several plant fossils such as Neuropteris leaves, but also this fossil. I am unsure whether this is the abdomen of an arachnid or insect, or just a plant fossil. On one part of the fossil, there is what seems to be a faint imprint of a Neuropteris leaf. However, this imprint seems to be from a different fossil which formed on top of the possible arachnid/insect. Do you think this is indeed an arachnid/insect fossil or just a plant fragment? Thanks, Daniel
  7. Ichthyosaur humerus?

    I found these two rarther worn bones in the same spot afew weeks apart in Yorkshire. I’m thinking broken humerus and any suggestions on the other bone are welcome, guessing some other part of the paddle. Not sure if it looks right for the radius or ulna though. (humerus) bottom bit worn away and top where the other paddle hones go. Other bone of similar quality and condition.
  8. What is this?

    Hi everyone. This is my first request for an ID, I'm a complete newbie with limited knowledge but very eager to learn. This might be nothing, but I thought it was strange. Found loose on a Yorkshire beach (UK) unsure whether it was washed up by the sea or came away in a cliff fall. Area known for ammonites/Mesazoic/Jurassic finds. Measures approx 9cm in length, 18 cm circumference.
  9. Plant Fossil

    I found this nice plant fossil at the base of the cliff last year. I think it's my best plant so far I'm sure my usual pen would be way too strong and easily damage this delicate fossil. I think removing some of the rock at the right hand side of the fern could make it look better. I'm tempted to try and just split it off but i know it could damage fern. What are your thoughts?
  10. Tonight, I started a block that iv had for quite some time, and being dying to prep. Annoyingly, the split from the nodule was very poor, cause a few different cracks, all the way through the ammonite. I glued this back up two days ago and let it set before starting prep. I couldn’t wait to get home from work today, so I could begin the real work. Prep photos to follow in the comments as I can’t size down these files any more
  11. After so many people showing an Interest in the Golden Cannonball Nodule, I though I’d start a thread to document my Yorkshire finds and prep, be they ammonites, bone, or what ever else. Hope you all enjoy
  12. Thought this would be an interesting one for anybody overseas, who has never heard of Yorkshire’s Golden Cannonballs. Theyre only found in the UK along the Yorkshire coastline. With a 1/15 chance of having something inside, it’s safe to say they can be quite rare, and are always sought after. More often than not, they either contain one, or multiples of Eleganticeras ammonites inside. I’ll never tire of finding them. Theyre found in the shake jet rocks, and take hours to polish up the iron pyrite to give them their golden glow of you like. Here’s one I recently prepared.
  13. ID from Yorkshire coast

    Found this fragment from Whitby area, at first I thought it was a flattened belamnite but wonder if it's in fact a tooth. Any ideas?
  14. Current Prep Thread

    So, what do we all havecurrently on the prep table? Be interesting to see what challenges await everybody. My current piece is this bone block, most likely ichthyosaur rib. A few scattered ammonites from the genus Dactylioceras sp. if expecting to probably found more bone further in all being well, probably a vert or two and some more ribs.
  15. Juvenile Ichthyosaur Hind Paddle

    From the album Yorkshire Ichthyosaur Fossils

    A small but beautiful polished paddle from Port Mulgrave in Yorkshire.
  16. Dremel

    Hey all, quick prep question. I’m looking at buying this dremel set with these accessories. I want it for smoothing (removing pen marks) polishing and sharpening the tip of my TT. Would i need to buy anything else to do this or is everything in this set? This is for hard Yorkshire Coast material Thanks
  17. Arnioceras Sp

    From the album Bobby’s ammonites

    a beautiful pebble from Holderness Yorkshire Uk. Arnioceras Sp
  18. A recent Yorkshire, England find of mine, prepped by Mark Hawkes. There are 3 perfect verts, neural arch still connected and a rib. Also bits of verts of either side. Originally i found this in a water rolled stone with just one worn vert showing on the outside, but the contents inside were beautiful
  19. My first coprolite

    I originally thought it was very thin bone but i’ve been told it’s acually a coprolite. This is from near whitby. Would be interesting to know if it’s from a fish or marine reptile. Probably impossible though.
  20. Jurassic Bone ID

    Hi guys/gals, found this bone a while back, thought was a worn Plesiosaur vert at first but once I removed the matrix a strange shape started to appear, found on the Yorkshire Jurassic coast, any idea's ? Thanks, Alan.
  21. I just made a video of some of my finds over the past 3 months, lots of times when i find things i forget to film them on the beach so i've not included those!
  22. Hello, I was wondering how swell effects fossil hunting on the coastal locations This week seems to look really good for it?
  23. My ichthyosaur paddle section has just come back from prep. i am waiting on another similar sized paddle section from the same Ichthyosaur which is being prepped, will look great together even though they wont fit. Here are the pictures, i think it looks stunning!
  24. Eleganticeras Multiblock

    A few months back, I spent three days along the Whitby coastline. It was a very good three days of collecting, but my last find of them days, is to this day my best find. I had decided to head to Runswick Bay. My legs and back were exhausted, so decided the short walk to to car park would be fairly light on the legs. Now, in my experience, Runswick hasn’t really produced much in the past for me, so I hadn’t gotten my hopes up too much. So you can imagine my shock, when I see a rather large nodule day there in Situ. I’ll let the pictures say the rest
  25. It’s been a long time since I posted here. So here’s a thanks to everybody that’s helped me out in the past on here. It’s seriously appreciated. So. Here’s a lovely 6 inch Hildoceras I found recently at Kettleness, I’m the Yorkshire coast. She’s a beauty. A few of the outer whorl chambers are a little crush, but it just adds to the piece of think
