  1. I have another one for Id. If there is one. Pareidolia? Lol Def looks like something to me but I have no idea! Can't find anything like it other than possibly a Trilobite? Also a Centipede Arthropleura? Maybe a stretch but it's the closest thing I can find to it. I found it in Centralia Pa. and was not in the shale, was in the ground. It's about 2" long and the areas are raised and the pattern seems intentional if that makes sense. Thanks for any help!

    Syringodendron?

    These two pieces were collected several years ago in Centralia, PA (Llewellyn Formation; Late Pennsylvanian). For a long time I had no clue what they could be. After recently coming across a publication titled "Fossil Plants From the Anthracite Coal Fields of Eastern Pennsylvania," I think I have a better idea now. I was hoping that someone with more knowledge in paleobotany could confirm my suspicions. I have seen several version of Syringodendron online, but the image in the publication seemed to match these pieces. What do you think? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks! #1-
  3. Inspired by a post last week by @I_gotta_rock, I decided to take a bit of an impromptu trek out to Centralia to add some of the famous white fern plates of the Lewellyn formation to my collection. I say impromptu because I was told I needed some pretty good rock climbing gear to be safe at the site, I ordered some pretty nice rock climbing gear too, still decided to go take a peek before everything arrived leading to one heck of an adventure that still has me smiling from ear to ear. We got our stuff ready to head out bright and early when I immediately hit my first snag, last wee
  4. I found this nice specimen while hunting for 'white fern' plates out in Centralia, PA. Based off of the size, shape and definition, I'm curious if its a seed of some sort? I left the seed un-prepped with the white silicate mix still present, would love help with an ID

    October Ghost Town Hunting

    Last fall, I drove out to Centralia, PA, the famous burning town. The coal vein below the town caught fire, creating random sinkholes filled with toxic gasses. The town was abandoned. The buildings were bulldozed. Only the most foolish set foot in the town limits. Today, however, the fires have mostly followed the coal vein out of town. I was out once in September, just to check the lay of the place, then returned in October to find fresh "No Trespassing" signs. Darn! Six weeks ago, I got a report that the signs were down. The person making the report said they double-checked with

    Oligocene Intertidal Bonanza

    The last couple of weeks I've been hitting a sandy shale bluff by the Chehalis River, just west of Centralia Washington. My latest expedition proved to be the most fruitful yet. A leaf impression, found on a big boulder that had broken off from the bluff. I left it where it was. Splitting it off from the boulder seemed unfeasible for the most part.

    More Long Cylindrical Shells

    A little while back I made a trip to the Lincoln Creek formation in Centralia Washington and came back with some strange cylindrical shells. Some folks on the forum suggested that they might be ship worm burrows, but I found some more today on a follow-up expedition. I can now safely say that they are all fairly straight, and narrow down into a sharp point towards the end. I found a picture labeled as "Cenozoic Shells of Washington State" on the internet, and one of the shells in the picture seems to be a dead ringer for the things I've been finding. Unfortunately, none of the shells in the pi
  8. I have been slacking in my posts the past couple of trips, so I figured I would catch up. First up are carboniferous plant fossils from McIntyre Mountain, PA:
  9. Deep in the heart of Pennsylvania's coal country runs the Carboniferous Lewellyn Formation. Once a vast tract of swampland, the area was home to 100 ft. tall Calamites (an extinct relative of modern herbaceous horsetails), giant tree ferns and other enormous plants, plus proportionally large insects. The conditions during the intervening millennia were just right for the plants to break down into iron-based minerals, including pyrophyllite and kaolinite, leaving a coating of white powder over the impressions in the rock. In rare spots, the iron minerals come in yellow, orange or re
  10. Got excited by some of the recent (and recently revived) threads on Centralia so I decided to take a ride over last weekend to take a look around. The graffiti highway was packed and there were a few ATVs riding around the dirt trails but I had the strip mine to myself for the afternoon with the exception of a couple families exploring the area that stopped by to chat. It was very warm on the exposure, but I look forward to getting back there as it cools down so I can try to find some premium specimens as the white ferns were just as bright as any I previously saw at St Clair.

    First trip to Centralia, PA

    I had my first taste of the Carboniferous period. I made the trip to Centralia PA for a look at the fossils there. I went to coal deposit up the road from the cemetery on 2nd street ( pic below ). Centralia was not a "ghost town" not when I was there. There was a lot of people around. Many looked like they where their for the Graffiti Highway and other for some kind of four wheel event across the street from the spot I was at. The Shale was very soft and I had a hard time picking up anything bigger than 2 inches. I pulled away 3 layer but still had the same problem. I don't know if it would
  12. So I found these fossils around Tukwila Washington. I'm not looking for an ID but I'd just like to share with you some of the gastropods and bivalves I found along the way And for all you Washington fossil hunters, don't listen to people who say you need to be in Utah to find fossils, they are everywhere here (Information: These come from the Eocene time period 40 million years ago. Some of these fossils are Turritella Uvasana (Identified by Professional) some gastropods, some pecten looking shells (still not sure) and bivalves of unknown species.)
  13. From the now ghost town infamous for underground coal fires. Id's welcome. Gordon Id's welcome.
