This is my fossil collection 

please show us yours!!!  These are my display fossils only

 

The first picture is a large unidentified fossil shark tooth I recently bought from a local fossil store. The second is my display collection I put fossils in once they have been prepared or bought.

The next photo is Madagascar copal it is about 9 million years old and it has multiple inclusions including fly's, wasps, and spiders. The next is an unidentified fish fossil in good shape but not too valuable. The fifth fossil is a trilobite (paralejurus) in Devonian limestone it is 385 million years old and was found in morocco I know the most about this one. And last but not least is my small polished chunk of Baltic amber it is 35-50 million years old and contains a winged insect inclusion as you probably know amber is fossilised tree resin and copal is hardened tree resin that is not quite fossilised. Thanks,

 

HAPPY HUNTING!!!!!!!

Your large unidentified shark tooth looks like an example of Otodus obliquus from Morocco.

Your fish is likely a Knightia eocaena from the Green River Formation, in Wyoming.
