  1. Kolya

    Shark tooth ID

    Hello again! Help please identify. Height - 4 mm. Age - please probably Middle Miocene. Location - Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance!
  2. Hello Gang! Been Missing in Action for a bit as I was out doing some field work hunting worms. While looking for a place to camp out in the middle of nowhere, I ended up finding a private ranch along the saline river which made my jaw drop (See Photo pulled from their site). Sadly, it was too short of notice for me to check it out in person and the weather was getting epic. However, it turns out they not only allow camping and fossil hunting for a small fee, they encourage it as they are very interested to learn about what they have on their property.
  3. Kolya

    Fossil ID

    Hello! Help please to identify this fossil. I think that it is something from fish... Lenght ~ 1-1,5 mm. Probably Middle Miocene. Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance!

    Greek fossils!

    Not only these are the firsts greek fossils in my collection, but are the only fossils that i have found. I found the fossils in Pikermi - Rafina, Attica (nearly Athens). Total over 4-5 kg (or over 20 specimens). I will post some of these. A huge clam, a vertebra, and some... i don't have idea. Age Pliocene or Miocene. Any help with the ID?

    Unobtainable dinosaur fossils?

    This may sound like a stupid question to the more seasoned collectors, but I've recently started buying dinosaur teeth to collect and I can't help but notice a pattern when searching through the various fossil websites. Almost all dinosaur fossils are American or Moroccan. I've seen that international fossil trade is actually illegal in some countries causing some fossils to be unobtainable realistically. Some fossils are also extremely rare as well and are valued much higher making them extremely difficult to find.. Is it really that common for dinosaur fossils to be unobtainable? I don't mea

    Are these fossils?

    Hey all, I recently went to a casino and found this outside of it. Is it a fossil or just some other mineral?
  7. fishguy

    Fossil clams

    Any idea? I got these in a collection I bought. No info with them.
  8. Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Possibly Upper Winterset Limestone Hello! I happened to come across one odd fossil that I could not recognize Some close ups on the leaves The only thing I could certainly determine it is some sort of Fern but beyond that I am unfamiliar of what species it could belong to My next specimen is a Fern leaf of some sort but due to its poor preservation is hard for me to determine what it is from, any Ideas?
  9. I figured I would share little bit with you guys of some of my favorites out of my collection , the Trilobites I found probably 20 years ago near Grafton Illinois while I was actually geode hunting , The corals ( I'm pretty sure they are corals) were found in Gravois creek in St.Louis ( its chock full of them) .
  10. Friday was a second trip out the the Windmill sites with a quad and a geologic map overlay. I scouted out a site further north that was across the arroyo. I am a geologist by training but not so much about fossils or minerals, mostly tracking layers and mapping.
  11. Today I decided to take a Personal Day today and head down to the cooling lakes and do a little fossil collecting at Pit 11, I was only out for about 2 1/2 hours. The day was cool, 37 degrees and with a 13 mph wind, it made the “feels like” temp 30 degrees. Luckily, I was collecting in a bowl like depression at the top of a high ridge, so I did not feel the wind and I only needed a light hoodie to stay warm. Pit 11 is no way near what it use to be. Back then there was no vegetation and the concretions were easily found. After the reclaiming of the land and reseeding, it

    Potomac river Virginia fossil ID help

    Guys any help on these would be great. 2 are some sort of black shell fossils? The other appears to maybe be a jaw bone? You can see it's missing a few teeth maybe. Just never found these before so curious what they might be. Thanks in advance.
  13. FossilHunterNYC

    New York Spots?

    Anyone know of good places in NY (close to NYC and Long Island) for fossil hunting ? Penn Dixie is way too far and I heard there are some good Devonian fossils in the Catskills. Any spot where I can find a sea scorpion or trilobite ?

    Sunshine State Enjoyment

    My yearly trip to Florida to visit family and friends was just what I needed. Luckily during our visit, we missed Minnesota's most serious cold snap of the year. As always, I get over to the Peace River area and had a great time with @Shellseeker. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to visit @jcbshark as he is in the process of moving but missed seeing him anyways. Jack and I were very successful, after a LONG hike, at finding a secluded spot to sift on a tributary of the Peace River and it gave up some nice treasures. My free time was also spent looking for fossils in and around Sarasota/Bradenton d
  15. I have been looking into purchasing a quieter compressor. I hear great things about how quiet the California Air Tools units are but some have suggested that the compressors may not last that long. Has anyone here used any of these for fossil preparation? I will typically run a compressor 5-8 hours a day for fossil work. Im looking at the 8010spc but if im only gonna get a few years out of it, it might not be worth the extra cash. Nick
  16. Today was a nice day, low 40’s F this morning and seeing that we are supposed to get 3-5 inches of snow, I decided to go with a friend of mine to collect at a site that I had not collected before. It was not a very productive site, but it was nice to get out collecting. I only found two concretions that were opened (Neuropteris and a Pecopteris) and they were both very weathered. Here are some of the concretions as I found them.
  17. When I got home from work today one of my neighbors called and asked me to come over to his house, when I arrived I saw that he had 3 large containers of fossils, rocks, etc. He reminded me that several years ago I gave 2 of his kids some fossils and that they recently went through them and kept what they wanted and asked me if I wanted the others back, of course I said yes. I cannot tell you what they kept, but I think there were a couple Oreodont upper skulls and probably a couple other cool pieces. Here is the stuff I brought back home. Most of the trilobites I belie
  18. What kind of gastropod is this? Found in east Tennessee?
  19. We recently had limestone tile flooring installed and selected a sample labeled "Fossil Tile". The wrapped packages indicated country of origin as Turkey. I have studied numerous features in the tile and believe they include belemnites or cephalopods, but there are irregular masses with bumpy linings that I'm unsure about. I'm interested in learning what region the stone may have come from, the geologic age and especially, the identification or possible identity of the "fossils". I've inspected broken tile edges for surface features that might tell more than the polished cross-sections, but fo
  20. I found this online and its free. I want to store fossils in this but i have heard that some wood damage fossils. Is that true? And will this cabinet work? I asked the seller what type of wood it is but they don't know.

    Fossil or not?

    Hello, This was found today in the highlands of Scotland I wondered if anyone could give any advice on what it is? I’m very new to this so any advice is appreciated! thank you in advance. Kerry :)
  22. Brachiopods orthoceras crinoids all found right here in Hendersonville TN Sumner county just north of Nashville. Love to fossil hunt and see what I can find while imagining worlds of the past.
  23. I own some property in Blanco County, Texas and there are many fossils and fossil imprints embedded in the rock along the creek that runs through the property. I would love to know what these fossils are. I am posting just 2 pics because of size restrictions. I know nothing about fossils but am fascinated by the ones I have found. Any help would be appreciated.
  24. Can anyone help me with the following fossils? (what species etc.). Made a selection of a bigger compilation (most important fossils are shown). Kind regards
