  1. Hi all! Very new to fossils, but hope to be stickin' around long term! While on a trip to Traverse City, MI this past weekend, I came across what appeared to be an amazing Moroccan crocodile skull fossil specimen (pics attached) at a mineral, fossil, and jewelry shop. The seller agreed to sell it for at a discount with guaranteed authenticity. I excitedly posted it on a fossil subreddit when I got home, and was immediately informed this specimen was an obvious fake from Morocco, and that Moroccan fossils are often fakes. One user specified the skull was likely constructed with san

    Crinoid fossil 0.00057 thousands. Dedicated Bausch & Lomb measuring microscope.
  3. I know I'm not the only one that doesn't live near good fossil deposits, which means that i'm not the only one that has to buy or trade fossils from time to time to build the collection. I thought it would be fun to have an ongoing thread to share our latest great score that we didn't personally find in nature, a thread to share your latest fossil purchase or trade. Let's see what you found at the local fossil show, online or anywhere else other than in the ground.
  4. I found this fossil and cant tell what or is and would like to know.

    A Taiwan fossil hunt

    Hello, So after yesterdays unsuccessful hunt and cut short because of rain. Headed south today. Plan was to go looking for crabs, but luck let me down again-- river too dangerous. So went for shells and sea urchins instead. Beautiful place, but I didn't take photos because I left my phone in the car because we had to wade (lucky I did. I slipped and ended up hip deep) Lots of the rocks had various shell fossils. There was one big rock with about a dozen big , almost complete scallop fossils. I left it as is. Would have been nice to have one, but didnt feel r

    Megalodon tooth

    Hey guys! I just bought a Meg tooth 6.35 inches long with great enamel and wanted to get your opinion on it! Thanks!
  7. Hey guys! I wanted to get your opinion on an early hyena skull I found online in terms of its quality and preservation, and how much do you think it should be worth. Thanks!

    Unknown find from beginner

    Hey guys, I am new to fossil hunting but do have some amazing areas in the NE of England to visit. I found this at Saltburn beach last week and have been having trouble identifying it. Could you please help? It's about the size of a small tangerine if that helps.

    Illinois tooth ID needed

    Hi I don’t believe this is yet fossilized, but need your help on an ID. From far northeast Illinois. Any idea?

    Another Coral Specimen?

    Hi all. I spotted this in a load of 1 inch gravel I purchased from a landscaping company in Cincinnati, Ohio. My first thought was that it is a fossilized mushroom, but I'm no expert in identifying mushrooms or fossils. After reading through some of the other posts in this forum, I've learned they are extremely rare and are usually identified as coral. I now suspect that I have an eroded solitary rugose 'horn' coral based on the "A Mushroom??" topic also in the Fossil ID forum. The appearance is similar and it was found in the same'ish area, but I didn't want to just sit on it without at
  11. Long time lurker but finally made an account here. Probably have talked to some of you on instagram though! This fossil was sold to me a while back when I first started collecting and I just wanted to make sure it is real. I was told by someone reliable that it's real, but was prepared using a cheap acid method. I would love to learn more about that too if that's the case. I attached pictures that I took with my iPhone and a moment macro 10x lens.
  12. Hey pals! I came across this fossil at an antique store and was wondering if it is real or fake. And if it is in fact, real, what species does this fossil belong to? would be great if someone could help me out, thank you!!
  13. Yesterday (9-11-2021) I went to the Denver fossil show. It was my first time going and I really enjoyed it. Most of the show was minerals and gems and jewelry however there were quite a few fossils. Unfortunately, most were Moroccan. There were some Pleistocene fossils, Meg teeth, USA Dino material and a few other things. Well might as well start with the photos. Let’s start with the few mineral pictures i took. Next up the Moroccan material which dominated the fossils present.

    Fossilized tooth?

    I got this tooth from the soil which was brought from the mountain to our house.
  15. I bought this online and they have 100 percent positive feed back. I can return it if its fake. I was told by a local rock hound that if it has an insect in the amber its 99 times out of 100 fake. I don't have it yet its out of Lithuania and will not be here for a few weeks. I can do the salt water test and ultra violet test but wondered what you guys thought visually.

    Did I find a Shark Tooth?

    Found this shark tooth? rock hounding on Lake Superior…any ideas what?
  18. Hey everyone, Via via I've bought this partial dinosaur raptor skeleton from the Jiangxi formation, China. Comes from an old collection. There is no more information than it being Jiangxi formation, and it exists of multiple pieces. We've got some bones, a claw, and a row of teeth. The big matrix with the claw and the partial skull + bones measures about 14 X 13 cm. Would anyone have a clue on the species of this Dino? If there is any more information you'll guys need, let me know

    Fresh Ammonite Fossil

    We actually found this about 1.5 years ago, just before moving to Florida. (Moved here a year ago). My son got it while he was at my parent's house in the outskirts of east DFW (we lived in north DFW, they lived in east DFW - we both relocated to FL). Their area was well known for dinosaur bones and the likes, which is super crazy lol!! Common to dig them up in yards while doing fences and whatnot. Anyway - my stepdad took my son to the cul-de-sac (2 houses down), one day where they were starting to build more houses. Kiddo wanted to check out the dirt & rock piles... He ended findi

    Weird fossil or weird rock?

    Hello all. I have a few fossils/rocks I bought from local stores/shows a few years ago. Sadly the labels to them were mostly all lost somewhere along the way, so I have no idea what they are or where they came from. With no information I don't expect to find out exactly what they are but I'm hoping to at least get a general idea. Attached are the images to the most confusing one, which was bought by my mother, so I don't have any recollection of what it could be (ruler is in inches). Thanks in advance for all your help.

  22. Hey all, so I found this ammonite while on Monmouth Beach, Dorset. It looks rusted, and I've read that they can disintegrate over time but I haven't found a clear guide on what to do to; a) polish and clean the fossil and b) stop it from deteriorating If anyone has any advice that would be amazing! Thanks

    Coldwater, MS fossils

    I have discovered these in Coldwater, MS in a nearby gully I frequently go to for these amazing finds. If Anyone has some great insight into what they are for sure, I would greatly appreciate knowing how much or if they are worth anything ?

    Fossil display!

    Hi! So I have been planning on adding some legs to this shelf (I use this shelf as a display because I can't afford anything better right now) because it is really short and it's not very nice to have to sit on the ground to look at your fossils. So I finally put some legs on it! It's not amazing looking and not very big and you do have to bend over a little bitt to look at the fossils up close but it will have to do. I also need some more fossils (I am saving up for a nice unprepared oreodont skull so I'm not going to be able to buy very many for the next few months).
