    Georgia visit

    Looking to visit the withlacoochee for Memorial Day weekend to collect some agatized coral. Never been before but @Sacha was kind enough to give me some pointers. Only going to be there for the weekend and would be very grateful for any other tips or if any members would like to show me and my fiancé the ropes. Also interested in Native American artifacts or fossils if either are a possibility.Would certainly be willing to trade off a trip if anyone can get out. Thanks in advance, Jeff

    Heliophyllum?

    Hello everyone. My daughter found this today on a beach in Alpena. We know it’s a coral, and so far, two folks suspect it is possibly Heliophyllum. I’m unfamiliar with that species and have nothing to compare it to. Just wondering if anyone else has seen something similar?
  3. I found what looks to me to be a coral fossil in a stream in Kent county Maryland and I would like some help identifying it. I tried to make my pictures as clear as possible but the fossil is really small. If a picture from a different angle would be helpful please let me know. Thanks in advance!

    Local Railcut

    Went out to a railcut that slices through upper Racine formation. This locality is only 10 minutes from my house. I almost never visit it because of scarcity of fossils, however I was reading a paper that mentioned forams in chert and decided to take another look. Here you can see the beds dipping gently to the east. This is interreef strata. Closeby is/was a huge reef, now filled with garbage. Here is a chert nodule to be sliced up. Also, found a silicified coral and packed in my bag. Disturbed this guys slumber. Silicified Favosites

    Really cool fossil but what is it??

    I found this about 8 years ago in a dried up creek bed behind my house in the hills of Hayward, California in the San Francisco bay area, USA. We dug it out of some dry but soft sediment and I assumed I found a fungus/mushroom of some sort but now Im not so sure. I am a hobby collector and love it no matter what it is but I would love to have an actual identification. Thanks!
  6. Hi everyone this is Matt again. Today in the creek, I found this big rock with a great looking fossil sponge/coral in it. I some how got lucky when I hit it with my hand sledge hammer , when the fossil coral/sponge came out complete from the rock. Here are 2 photos:
  7. Hi everyone this is Matt again. Take a look at this great looking Favosites coral I found in the creek today Here is a photo:
  8. Hi! I work at a children's museum in Tennessee, and we go out to local elementary schools and teach science lessons. One of them is on fossils... how they form, how they are found, what they can tell us about life in the past, etc. I have been tasked with organizing our materials for this particular lesson to give to our new teachers. In cleaning out some bins, I found the fossils I have attached below. I have no idea where the museum got them, but my feeling is they have been in our possession a while. I would really like to attach a name to these fossils, what the date range

    Help? What are these

    Hi, my son was desperate to find a fossil.while on holiday. Can you help identify the 2 things we found? A geologist friend suggested one is coral. The pitted texture seems to go right through to the other side. Thanks for any help. Aileen

    James River

    The James river was not what I had expected. I was hoping to find a meg the size of my hand, but that didn’t happen. No worries, I had a lot of fun. I saw a river otter, a lot of osprey, eagles, and more wildlife which was fun to look at from a distance. The first day of the trip, we went over the east over formation, I collected mostly whale bone from that day and nothing else spectacular. It was only when we went to a Yorktown exposure on the last hour of the trip that I found three stunning chesapectens, including what I think the biggest one to be a jeffersonius. Later that day, I went to
  13. A recent find. Has a texture that could be bark, but I am leaning towards coral.

    Coral found in Big Brook, NJ

    I read recently that some reworked devonian corals can be found mixed in with the fossils at big brook, and I wanted to post this old find to get people's opinion. Kind of looks like a lot of devonian corals I've found, but I had just assumed it was cretaceous because of the location.

    Need ID help with today's creek finds

    A few curious things from Cretaceous Eagle Ford/QAL mix I can't quite put my finger on, first one looks like burrow but up close it's very different from other burrows I've found. Next I'm wondering if it's coprolite, then possibly rugose? Last one i have no clue just didn't think it looked geological. Forgot the end shot of burrow so added it at end.
  17. I found this little piece In a gravel bed on the Kansas River outside Kansas City. Does anyone have any ideas? Could just be a weird shaped rock or coral?
  18. Howdy! Found this little piece in an area where I have found quite a bit of coral. It is a bit different than previous coral finds, but does have similarities. It is just a "finer" grain of striations and pores and not quite as regular as other coral finds. So it is making me question whether it really is coral or perhaps rudist or just geologic. It is in an area of Georgetown and Buda Formation Undivided with some Glen Rose Formation upstream in Hays County. It is 1 1/4 inch. Thanks for any help! Three sides: Coral from same location: Size 3

    Small fossil, found in a gravel bed

    I found this interesting piece in a gravel pile in Kansas City. The gravel had a ton of different rock in it, including what looked like marble fragments, so I’m not sure if it came from somewhere else. I’ve included pictures below, some kind of coral maybe?

    Elko Nevada Fossils

    I found these 5/10/21 around Elko Nevada Nevada in an area rich with coral and Brachiopods. Any help identifying theses so appreciated! Ty!
  21. I found this on a sandbar along the Kansas River in Shawnee, KS. I found a collection of aquatic fossils on the sandbar that look like they had been washed up. I don't know what this is, it appears to have small bone or cartilage fragments imbedded in it (I'll take some close up pictures and upload them if needed). The top face has irregular divots while the back side is more smooth. The whole piece is hard and heavy (best I can tell, it's has a 7 or so on the hardness scale). I haven't really seen anything like this before.
  22. Edit: This is a duplicate don't reply I found this on a sandbar along the Kansas River in Shawnee, KS. I’m not sure exactly what it is, it appears to have small bone or cartilage fragments imbedded inside. The top face has irregular divots while the bottom side is smooth.
  23. Hello everyone, I apologise in advance for the lower quality photos, my phone is quite old and the camera is going. Anyways, I was down in Cape May this past weekend and I decided to beach comb on sunset beach. i found several interesting items, and I was wondering if I can get some input regarding what they are. The first two images seem to be a similar type of fossil (if it is one). I am wondering if it could potentially be Paleozoic (if anything?). However, I am not sure exactly what it is, nor the material that it is made of. The third image I think co

    Coral/Sponge?

    I was cleaning up my "fossil prep room" and found this specimen I meant to ask about months ago. It was found at the base of a Kentucky road cut that had Kope Formation. It is paper thin and actually popped off of the matrix. I then glued it back on. It seemed to look better associated with the trilobit. I am hoping to ID this as specific as possible since it is quite different from what I have found before. THANKS!!!! Mike
