  1. Location is in Missouri The area is dated to the Pennsylvanian Formation: ???? Hello! it is I once again I was curious on what this might be as it looks different from what I usually see in this type shale I have found Pyrite Calamites in shale but they usually don't have this texture so I was unsure of what exactly it may be. Zoomed in picture of the texture: Other side of this shale: Not Sure if these will help with the ID but here is the picture with the end pieces visible

    One of a kind fossil from MA

    Last week on Fossil Friday, the Museum of Natural History and Planetarium in Roger Williams Park added the fossil I found from my post last time and still proud about it because they said on their Facebook page that its only one they have in the collection . Because its the first of its kind I discovered around New England until I find more fossils around that site in North Atteborough just waiting to be discovered with a story to tell.

  6. Good afternoon, I have submitted photos of this fossil to multiple local groups in hopes of a possible identification to no avail, therefore I have turned to this forum and home to figure this out! I hope it to be a calamite cone fossil but I have been wrong before, so I am asking for a second opinion. Thank you very much! Important information: This fossil was pulled off a shale cliff that is abundant in calamite and fern fossils. The cliff is located near Carnegie, Pennsylvania (Western PA). The specific fossil has both calamite and ferns on the reverse side. Edit 1: Th

    What species of Calamite is this

    I know these two are Calamites but I’m unsure how to identify the species. They were both found in the North Attleboro part of the Rhode Island formation and I’m thinking the larger one is C. Cistii?

    One of many calamite fossils I have found

    Calamite #2

    From the album: Missouri Plant Fossils

    One of my favorite Calamites due to how well preserved its internal anatomy is! I gave this to a friend's little brother who loves fossils.
  10. I picked up two additional fossils I needed. First one is a Calamites Leaf Tip, needed this to go with all my other Calamite fossils. Second is a Lepidodendron Leaf , I only had one small sample of this so wanted more. this is all Pennsylvanian age
  11. This was found in Hamlin wV in a layer of sandstone approx 614 ft above see level it looks to be calamite but the needles or whatever you call them around the stem seem to close together. Theres a pop bottle cap up top for reference to size or whatever u call it Soda bottle cap in your area of the country. This came from my back yard theres a rock outcrop at the base of this hill and every square inch of this rock is smashed plant material like it was a leading edge of a flash flood how it carrys all the plants trees and trash that it picks up in that thick slurry cause 10 ft up and 20ft over

    Calamites?

    This was given to me from a third hand source. I’m only assuming it’s from Illinois—I really don’t know. I supposed it was a calamites horsetail, but I’m seeking confirmation before I catalogue it. Anyone?

    From the album: MY FOSSIL Collection - Dpaul7

    Calamite Tree Fossil SITE LOCATION: eastern Kentucky TIME PERIOD: Carboniferous, Pennsylvanian Period (330 million years ago) Data: Calamites is a genus of extinct arborescent (tree-like) horsetails to which the modern horsetails (genus Equisetum) are closely related. Unlike their herbaceous modern cousins, these plants were medium-sized trees, growing to heights of more than 30 meters (100 feet). They were components of the understories of coal swamps of the Carboniferous Period (around 360 to 300 million years ago). A number of organ taxa have been identified as part of a uni

    Calamite

    From the album: Carbondale, PA

    Calamities sp., a tree-like plant with hollow, woody stem that grew more than 100 ft high (30m). Found in a tailings pile in Carbondale, PA.

    Lepidodendron

    From the album: My Collection

    Here is another plant material plate I found over at Cory's Lane, Rhode Island. This medium sized plate has a lepidodendron branch going through the middle with calamites and neuropteris leaves around the edges of the matrix.
  18. Here are pictures of Calamite found in New Brunswick Canada
  19. It might be hard to see from the pic. But looking at the calamite fossil I found, it appears that it had many layers of bark. It almost seems like it had many layers of skin like onion. I know these tree would get up to 100 feets or so. I was wondering if anybody knew if it had diffrent layers of bark?
  20. This is the first of a collection of photos I had taken during a fossil hunt that my brother and I did in Rhode Island back in early 2000's. Most all were to big to bring home but we did bring home some nice smalls and some cool pic's. I could not bring myself to hack into Mother Natures work so it was not disturbed. I hope that they still are there for all to enjoy. This picture is of a calamite cast with very little detail due to the coarse gravel that filled the void.
  21. So got out fossil hunting for a couple hours today in Washington, PA and found some new stuff, some better examples of previous finds, and a lot of the same... Some of which I still had to pick up but didn't go overboard... lol. I would like to start with something I picked up on the way back to my car. First one of its kind I have found at this site. Thoughts? In trying to adjust my eyes for more 2 or 3D plant fossils I found these. The second I have found a similar piece of in the past that was ID'd as an inner layer of a plant fossil. This is a new piece so welcome to any new thoug
  22. Hi everyone! I'm new to this site (signed-up-5-mins-ago new, lol), and I have a question. Unfortunately, I don't have a picture, because I wasn't thinking and sent it to school with my daughter, who is studying fossils in class. Anyway, my husband and I took our daughter fossil-hunting on a trail in Frostburg, MD (Allegany Co.). As a kid, I used to go through shale piles at my grandpa's farm and occasionally run across a fern fossil, and since this particular trail (down from the train depot, Allegany Highland trail, perhaps?) has lots of shale on the sides, I thought it would be a good pl

    Plant Id's

    This is Washington, PA dunkard group. I am starting with one and will be adding pics of other plant material to this same post. I have a couple.... #1 (the piece I found is a fairly large size... Let me know if additional pic would help)

    Calamite Maybe?

    Found a couple things in some river or lake rocks today. Found calamite before and thinking this is possibly a somewhat worn piece? Thanks in advance!
