    9 Possible Fossils?

    More Lake Michigan - Long Beach, IN finds. #1 - just a rock? #3,5 - horn corals? #4 - favosite? #8,9 - more coral? Sorry about the photo quality/quarter as a size reference. It was the best I could do for now. Thanks for your input
  2. I found this water filled agate geode/vug in an area known for 22-26 million year old coral and shell fossils. I acid etched it from a chunk of limestone. It has unique patterns I have not seen before. It might not be a coral fossil, but that is my best guess. It could be a Bryzoan which have also been found in the area. It's 1.5 inches long. I'm hoping the detailed patterns and side structure can help one of your experts figure out what I found. The outer form also makes me think of coral, but brozoans would also fit.
  3. When I found this small piece - I was sure it is a brachiopod... But now after looking on many other things, I am sure it is not a brachiopod. I am thinking about the base of a coral. Please help to identify it. This should be Ordovician. N.1 N.2 N.3 N.4 N.5 N.6 N.7

    Syringopora coral preparation

    Hi I have syringopora coral that I want to make more visible. Right now most of it is buried in limestone. I don't want to remove all matrix, just make "tubes" more visible and appealing. Will soaking it in white vinegar do the job?

    Fossil coral ID

    Hi I found this fossil in gravel pit near Zgierz, Łódzkie, Poland. I think it's syringopora coral, but I'm not sure. I think it's worth noting that fossils from this area are glacial erratics.

    ID on a coral

    Hi all I hope you all are safe and well. Please can I have some help on this coral ID. If was found about 12 years ago . Somewhere In the Yorkshire Dales/ Pennie Way . Sorry but that’s the best location I have until MrsR looks at a map. I can do better pictures tomorrow if required. @TqB any ideas pal. thanks for your help Bobby

    A little help?

    As mentioned in my opal post this was also in the mystery box and was looking for any ideas. About the size of a deck of cards.
  8. Dimitar


    Hello again, here are some pictures of corals that I find in the rock. Origin - near Montreal, exact location is unknown, because I find this rock in the park, it is not clear where exactly it came from. Should not be far from Montreal area. N.1 N.2 N.3 N.4 N.5 - Mollusca or Brachiopod

    What kind of coral is this?

    I found it in Belgium
  10. Sinestia


    I unearthed this monster over 3 years ago while digging for a foundation. I luckily struck it with my shovel and not by backhoe. It was a very bland looking rock at first glance then I looked again and have been picking at this 38 lb rock since . I find something new every time I pick it up. So any help with what it is would be great.

    Please confirm if these are corals

    All of these came from Alluvial gravels in creek close to Trinity river. Only one I'm confident about is first one, obviously coral, but is it recent and should it have been here? It feels and clinks like glass. Next one I'm not sure if it's geological or not, seems to have well defined tubes of some sort. Next one lacks detail, plant, borrows,coral? Last one I thought was shell but looking at the rest of it not so sure, looks like it had a center with the tubes surrounding it, coral? rugose? Oh and second one is same size as last one.

    Tampa Bay Fossilized Coral Branch?

    Hi Fossil Hunters, I found this unusual piece on Honeymoon Beach, Florida. It's not the typical shaped coral I find and has corallites on the base. I wanted to know what kind of coral and if it's fossilized or just a limestone cast (Steinkern)? Florida Guys I could use your help. @Harry Pristis @Plantguy @Shellseeker Thanks! Lynn

    Guadalupe Mountains National Park

    I found this a few years back near (but not in) Guadalupe Mts National Park. Is it a sponge, coral, algae, or something else? Piece is about 6 inches across. Thank you for your help.
  14. Hi everyone this is Matt again. Take a look at this cool coral I found in the creek today. Here is a photo of the coral:
  15. Hi everyone this is Matt again. Today in the creek, I found this very nice bryozoan fossil. Here is a photo:
  16. Yesterday I picked up this liquor display rack that was thrown away and I decided to take it to display the Withlacoochee Coral that I received from John @Sacha from a couple of his recent auctions to support the Forum. This rack is solidly built as it was made to hold many bottles and the top has a huge plexiglass cover. I had a plexiglass riser that I placed inside to display 2 of my favorite pieces on the top shelf. I think it will hold these pieces quite nicely.

    What's left of rugose coral?

    I have zero experience with corals, so just going by pictures I've seen on this guess. This was in creek with Alluvium/ Eagle Ford mix, I spent about an hour prepping it to expose the top and smooth side of what was a mound with vague outline. Hope I didn't screw it up too much!
  18. I grabbed all these samples over the years from the same rock quarry in western New York, which excavates the Middle Devonian Onondaga Formation. I believe most of these are corals, but I was hoping someone could help specify what type of coral so I can organize them a bit better. I resized the pictures with the provided links to lower the quality, hopefully they are not too big still. Appreciate the help. 1. Two different fossils in this cherty material, on left I believe this is Rugose Coral because visible septa, but on the right above the letter "L" in the coin I am not

    This colonial rugose coral was found in Clarksville, TN and was sent to me just a few days ago and i’m not very well versed in Cnidarian classification, any ideas on a species?

    ID backyard fossil

    Back yard find, along w/ other coral types. Clay soil w/ broken limestone, common in San Antonio. The lower portion has a few clear coral-type cells, Opposite end, usually w/ radial pattern in rugosa, is smoothed oval dome. Can't find similar type in variety of fossil sites online.

    Found this in Belgium

    It’s a little bit hard to see but my guess is coral. It has flowery designs with stripes on it
  24. Today I stopped at home to grab something for work and I found a box waiting for me. It was a box that contained the winnings of the recent auction that John @Sacha put up to benefit the forum. I absolutely love everything that was included in this package. John has gotten me into a love of echinoids and Florida coral. I even have gone through my collection of Fossils and picked out all of the other echinoids that I have acquired over the years, and now I’m going to place them all into one area. The fossils that I received from John will always remain in my collection, and I was
  25. Found in WNY (Brocton) on land, in the woods , about 4 miles away from the shoreline of lake erie.
