Real FOSSILS?! What kind are some of these?

Recommended Posts

Hey, I got a Little fossil kit on Christmas, and I was wondering if all of these are real? And if so, what are the fossils on the top row?

To decrease confusion, I have numbered your specimens.C18F9143-E38B-45EC-B69C-93BCB3F5CAD8.thumb.jpeg.af0dc93f11793278cbe6a5eb111e5e98.jpeg

Thanks! 1-4 are the ones I'm mainly confused on.

Do you want to take pictures of 1-4 up close separately and post them so we can get a better view of each?

It certainly would help if you would make close ups of all 4 of them, but from a distance, they all look like minerals or stones

9 & 10 are crinoid stems

 

12 is Ammonite

 

13 is Gastropod

 

14 fish vertebra?

 

11, 15, 16 brachiopod?

 

7 squalicorax tooth

 

5 need more info.

 

8 maybe a partial fish?

 

1-4 need close up photos

I'm pretty sure number 5 is a mosasaur tooth of some type, I'm coming up with pictures of 1-4 in a bit.

I think number 4 may be petrified wood? I looks similar to an other specimen I have

It may be, but we need pictures in sunlight, so we can see them more clearly.

From your pictures it looks like a chunk of chert or calcite to me.

Would you take some more pictures of 3 and 4 individually with a good amount of light? To be able to tell what minerals they are (if they are minerals that is) we’ll need to be able to see the texture and crystal habit.

Does this kit not come with a list of what is in it?

It comes with a list, it's just not really a helpful list.
