Show Us Your Blue Fossils

Recommended Posts

32fordboy

For some odd reason, I am crazy over blue fossils. Baby blue, neon blue, navy blue, grey-blue, it doesn't matter.

I'd like to see your blue fossils!

Here are five to get you going. They are little, but very pretty.

Some shark teeth, an Imperial Mammoth molar, and a Teleoceras rhino molar.

And the obligatory conularid. Same site as above. I actually found a large, nice one recently, but haven't photographed it yet:

It doesn't work with my iPhone. :)

I'm not sure what type it is. It was found on a gravel bar in the Kansas River.

Wow, this thread is really taking off! And look at that mammoth tusk. That is the nicest tusk I've seen, hands down.

Wasn't going to post this for a while but, since the thread is going strong right now, here is the only other blue fossil currently in the collection. It's Jaguar material from Florida.

Keep 'em coming. Everything in this thread has been amazing so far.

This is probably the most exciting fossil I have found this year. I posted it a while back, so you guys have seen these pix if you've been paying attention. These are blue-green Eocene crocodilian bones from the Wasatch Fm of southwest Wyoming. I have been slowly doing some prep work on them and there is more out there to be collected (over Labor Day, I hope). I posted on this that someone told me these were actually turquoise, but I have also heard form other mineral folks that they are likely some other blue-green mineral.

The first photo here is of a small plate of rock with a vertebra in it:

The second photo is the bottom side of that same plate.

post-1450-0-37632600-1344368400_thumb.jpg

And this is the group of plates all put together more or less. The piece in the abopve pix is at the top right. The color is ba don this, but you can still see the bluish color, especially of the triangle shaped bone at center right... a cervical rib.

post-1450-0-83803200-1344368440_thumb.jpg

I am pretty excited about this and would be thrilled if it has a skull. Oh, and you guys will hear about it if it does.

That is too cool!

I found a nice Muncie spot that appears unhunted (except by me for a few minutes). Time to start digging and I'll be looking for those!

Some of the beautiful iridescent ammonites from Alberta would belong in this thread. Please post 'em if you got 'em.
