  1. Two days ago some workmen laid some stone by the side of a road near a pond in Sharon CT and I found two fossils one that appears to be the back of a Trilobite or a Chiton and another that looks to me like scallops or some other bivalve (I know that scallops and trilobites never existed at the same time). Does anyone have any ideas as to what these could be. Also I know this rock is not from where I found it, it was probably sourced from a local quarry so I would have to check with the highway department of Sharon to figure out where these come from.
  2. The fossils were found in the 70s in northern Sardinia during the excavations for the construction of a road. I do not know the exact location, but I know that it is the north of Sardinia. The coin is 1 euro (it's similar in size to an American quarter.) What could it be? Thanks in advance
  3. Went back to my little gold mine today and was again amazed by the variety of things found. Previously I thought I was in Eagle Ford, but it is in Woodbine, with ravine that cuts down to Grayson as was explained to me in first post from this local. Everything was dried out except bottom of ravine, from the looks of things I think a natural spring is involved. So found some more Mariella ammonites, one with part of a scallop maybe?, and a Hemiaster, another Texigryphaea with some shell, I believe a little bacculite, an Echnodus tooth?, unknown clams, a Trigonia, and crawling on hands and knees
  4. Hello. This is my next mystery. It's been looked at in the precleaned state and dismissed as a cool rock. I beg, to differ and need your thoughts. My reasons for thinking this is a fossil/ fossil impression are as follows: 1) As I cleaned, the left edge (see ladt pick with knife), began to show evidence this is on top of the matrix, not part of it. Likely matrix of shale-chert so please, take that into consideration. Extremely odd charts in my area 2) Looking at the picture with my finger, examine that small white portion. That appears totally different from the rest.
  5. I've driven by this field for years with a big ravine in the distance and decided to check it out since it wasn't fenced or posted and glad I did. The ravine was a good 30-40 yards long, probably 10ft+ at deep end and around 5ft wide, as I got closer the dirt changed to grey clay mud with little vegetation, the surface was sandy and rocky. First thing I saw was the large Echinoid, then peices of what I thought were ammonites until I found a more intact one, then I thought Turritella but didn't quite fit. Had a heck of a time trying to ID them and finally ran across Turrilites, I think that's w

    Several fossils with original shell

    This little rock is from Eagle Ford, since it was cracked I broke it open to be surprised by all the fossils in it and that I saw shiny things with color. Definitely not what I'm used to seeing! I assuming most of these have original shell, there are gastropods that are different colors, and also bivalves with different color, different sub order? Several heteromorph ammonites I think, and some kind of worm. Curious what the shiny multicolored area is, a couple unknowns, dendrite I think, and last one I'm not sure about, scaphite maybe? Appreciate any help!
  7. A couple of weeks ago I was in Southern Florida with my wife and my sons family for 8 days. My wife, my 7 year old grandson and your’s truly. During this time I was able to get out and collect fossil Pliocene-Pleistocene shells from the Caloosahatchee Formation. Collecting fossil shells is one of my favorite fossils to collect and I love it when I find complete examples. I have been to the Peace River a couple times, and even stopped there on the way home to take a look at it, it was very shallow, there was a group of people sifting, but I did not partake.
  8. This all started over a year ago. I was selected as Member of the Month and a couple of TFF members from Texas invited me down to the big state to collect. I primarily collect in my home region, the northeast, but I've taken fossil forays to New Mexico, Kentucky, and Germany and was willing to consider a trip to Texas and the opportunity to visit some classic fossil sites and collect fossils that are outside my usual focus. I began planning this about ten months ago, contacted potential fossil collecting partners and did my own research on fossil sites, geology, and the types of fossils I woul

    Carboniferous limestone fossils??

    I am wondering what fossils you can see in these rocks. they are all carboniferous limestone (prehaps not the red/brown one). I can see Bivalves, coral, crinoids, brachiopods (I think), And nothing else. Why aren't there other carboniferous life. (I understand soft parts go) These rocks are packed with fossils, what can a real paleotologist see?

    A bunch of shells

    A bunch of Paleozoic shells in a rock I found in Dane county, Wisconsin. I know It’s almost impossible to get a genus ID on any of these fossils without a specific quarry or site but I thought it would be cool if you guys could see them. I also have them posted on my gallery

    Florida Unknowns Part 1

    Having returned last week from a nice visit with my son in Florida, it was time to examine the fossils that I snuck home with. Eventually, I will make a trip report, but I need to identifying my unknowns first. So Here goes, and I might as well tag @MikeR right off the bat! The next unknown appears to be sponge like. In fact the largest one ACTUALLY FLOATS in water. So these are very light weight. I couldn't find sponges in the Tamiami, so maybe my formation is incorrect. The rubbl
  14. My girlfriend, Valerie and I were visiting my aunt in West Palm Beach, Florida. She is 90 and lives in a senior residence. I wasn't planning to go fossil hunting or even thinking about fossils. However, on our last night there, we were walking in the neighborhood to burn off a few calories when I spotted a number of fossil shells in front of an apartment complex. We spent about half an hour searching the shells for complete ones in good condition- found over twenty species. Valerie got into it too and found some excellent specimens. After that we began spotting fossil shells everywhere. It's a

    Pyrite Disease

    My fossilized bivalves seem to be turning gold in some areas, and some parts have chipped off . Is this "pyrite disease"? Is it due to being on wooden shelving? I wouldn't say my climate is particularly humid. My great uncle gave these five to me when I was seven, so they are special and I would like to save them None of my other fossils or minerals are exhibiting these signs?

    Literature on fossils

    Fossil forum, Good morning. I have been looking for literature on the following for a while now, and have not been successful. I was wondering if anyone already had information on the following, or can direct me to a place where I can look for it myself. Brachiopods, specifically Lingulids (classification and identification) Salopina genus ( classification and identification), this genus was moved from Orthis, for further clarification Rhychonellida (classification and identification, at least to the genus level). Camarotoechia genus (classificat

    Overexposure light when taking picture so blue appear to be the best for me so far. Rare Decorah Formation Ordovician Twin Cities Minnesota. Deceptrix planodorsata is what I figures this bivalve is. Kind of reminds me of certain modern nut clam species.

    From the album: Bivalves of Platteville/Decorah Formation Minnesota

    Guessing Modiolopsis arguta. It is the bigger of similar shaped bivalves that I have found. Uncommon to rare Decorah formation so far. The top right is the hinge. Ordovician, Twin Cities Minnesota.
  21. Icy? Well, compared to some areas in the US or Moscow, it had only a few degrees below zero (Celsius) last Sunday. The nights had about -10°C, the days about -2°C. This period lastet from last Friday to Monday. No snow at all and very, very dry air. The last two days we had about 0°C during the night and +10°C maximum during the day. Still very dry. So without any snow and clear, but "cold" weather, I checked out a few Miocene sites around St. Josef in western Styria, Austria. I have made a detailed report about the area more then a year ago here: Rocks and fossils wer
  22. Dear collectors! I'm curious If someone interesting for my collection of Mollusc, mainly gastropods and bivalves from tertiary of Europe. I have more than 1000 specimens! I'm open-minded and accept all offers! I am interested in quality fossils and NOT quantity!
  23. Taking advantage of my time spent home, I finally got a couple of glass display cases to showcase fossil specimens from my collection. Finding ones that were affordable and blended with the style of our home, was challenge, and I took my time choosing. Despite a bit of criticism I receive from some of my fossil collecting friends, I am a generalist collector who doesn't specialize in anything. Having said that, my collection does feature some rare faunas; Devonian and Cretaceous bivalves, Lower and Middle Devonian brachiopods and gastropods, Cretaceous vertebrates, etc. The focus is largely on

    Back to the Ohio Valley

    Hi Everyone, I took a 2 week trip to the Ohio Valley, arriving back in New York about a week ago. It was primarily a family visit since many of my relatives now reside in the Elizabethtown, KY area. However, the Ohio Valley, as some of you know, is very rich in Paleozoic fossils and I just had to make a few stops on my way there and back as well as between family engagements. I will try to share enough to give you all a gist of it: It was a long day's drive from the northern suburbs of New York City to Richmond, Indiana where I spent the first night. The next day I was headed down State R
