  4. New Jersey Late Cretaceous Updated

    Approximately 70 million years ago, during the Late Campanian Age of the Cretaceous Period, the Earth's oceans were teeming with a diverse array of wildlife. The streams and tributaries where these fossils are found go by many names: New Jersey, United States, and North America. Yet, these designations for the Earth are simply concepts created by humankind; they are arbitrary when held against the eons of nature and life that have preceded humans and that will come after humans. Through fossil collecting, a new appreciation for life on Earth is had. A humbler stance on existence is usually taken by those people who take the time to postulate the intricacies and wonders of nature. These fossils I present to you in this album are a small but beautiful glimpse into one of the many lost worlds that our Earth once was. I hope you may find use for or enjoyment from this album.

    Artifacts are uncommon, but can be found in many of the streams where fossils are found.

  7. Field Comrades Updated

    When the snows are blowing, I like to sift through the camera roll and reminisce about the good fossil times. But nothing makes those fossil times better than breaking rocks with good people.
     
    Although we are all gathered here to collect fossils, sometimes what really matters is collecting friends.

  16. Late Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany Updated

    The overwhelming majority of this Ammonite fauna is preserved as limestone molds. But they can nevertheless make very pretty pets. There is a seemingly unendless amount of sites which can be visited since a great expanse of these layers is exposed from the north of Switzerland over the Swabian Alb up into the Franconian Alb in Bavaria. The forms and variations of this fauna are also manifold and the species and genera are being continually moved about or renamed, so I can't guarantee that my IDs are up-to-date.

  20. North Sulphur River Updated

    Fossils found in the North Sulphur River , Ladonia, TX. Identifications are primarily done by myself, so don't hesitate to correct them. 
    Before you go, check the water level ! Ideal hunting is usually < 3'-2'
     
    The Cretaceous fossils are from the Ozan formation (~ 86-88 Ma), and mammal material from the Pleistocene or younger.

  21. Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany Updated

    I've been living and collecting in this part of the world for a good many years now. Middle Jurassic layers are exposed at many sites here and these are the ones I've been concentrating on mostly.

  22. Trace Fossils Updated

    Trace fossils, or Ichnofossils as they are also called, are quite fascinating, even though they may just be a by product for many collectors, since they don't always look as pleasing as most well-preserved fossils. Of course dinosaur tracks are really something special, but I haven't found any of those yet.

  24. Fluorescent Petrified Wood Updated

    Ever tried shining an ultraviolet light on your fossils? About 60% of fossil shells fluoresce. I discovered one morning as I was admiring my fossil shells this way, that my petrified wood seems to match those statistics.  Below you can see what they look like under visible light.

    Petrified Cypress Wood, Miocene, Delaware
