WOW!  Think your wife could text my little lady and let her know they are NOT just rocks to stink up the house and collect dust;)

It is so hard for a novice to get a worthwhile fossil without guidance. Your wife did impressively well!

 

We should start a TFF service for members spouses similar to the secret Santa but geared towards helping them to select good fossils to buy. I mean, you all should start this service to help my wife find good fossils to buy:P

It is good idea to create a members spouse support service offering a personal shopping experience.  :D
 

Thank you

Already talked with your wife. You should be getting some nice mineral stained shale for your Birthday. :default_rofl:

@Jeffrey P Thanks I am very pleased with the little lot. It is a really interesting formation with a incredible  wide verity of flora and furan. 
 

@michele 1937 thanks for your help.

These are from Ralph's (Nimravis) personal collection which he collected in the field. You should be able to find the Mazonomya online from our favorite auction site, but the Aviculopecten  won't be as easy.

These are indeed specimens of excellent quality, and most of the flora appear to have enough detail to ID down to species level. I can see at least 5 that can be, despite the photos being a tad out of focus. It'll give you something to do during the cold spells. That should help the gift "keep on giving".

 

P.S. -- Michele 1937 was asking where to buy those two species. I believe they are endemic to the Mazon Creek biota.

Thanks Mark to be honest most things are out of focus over Christmas. I only have an iPhone but I will definitely retake some photos tomorrow in good light  and replace the blurry ones. 

Merry Christmas

I'm ok with what you have posted already. I was implying that YOU should do the research to ID them -- they are good enough quality to allow it. No need to upload photos for my benefit.

Oh cool, I was planning too and like you said something to do on a cold winters evening.

Impressive quality on many of those fossils, Bobby. You've got a keeper. (Your wife, of course. My wife's my keeper too, much to her chagrin.)

Mark these were not mine, I believe Bobby’s wife bought them. I also just noticed that the part / counterpart piece with the Lepidodendron bark also appears to have the base of a Neuropteris  leaf.  @Bobby Rico

Oops, my bad. You were mentioned in the original post and I assumed they were purchased from you. Mrs R apparently knows quality when she sees it.

 

Neuropteris  or Cyclopteris ? Hard to tell from what's there.

Thanks everyone for the ID help and the kind comments about MrsR buyers skills. I have to say MrsR is really pleased  I like the little collection and the validation from my friends on the forum has really made her so happy .
