    Calvert Beachcombing Tips?

    Hi guys! So I'm planning to go back to one of the Calvert County beaches to try my luck again- I haven't had any success with finding teeth bigger than about a quarter inch and I'm hoping to find something a little bigger next time. My current technique is to dig up sand from the water and sift through it super carefully- should I switch it up and try something different to find big teeth? If so, does anyone have any recommendations for how to find them? And, final question, which beaches are good for finding larger specimens? I know Purse and Matoaka are good for quantity but I don't know whi

    Help with suspected carpal bone

    Would greatly appreciate if anyone has thoughts on this bone found on the beach in Myrtle Beach. It is triangular, laterally compressed, and has a concave articulating surface on the long edge. I’m thinking some type of carpal bone? Turtle or dolphin, maybe. Thanks in advance!

    ID help please

    If any one would be so kind as to help us ID these specimens for my son's geology project that would be great. I hope that it is ok to post more than one at a time. I was outside but the light wasn't great for my macro setting so I had to use my flash. All were found in South Eastern Kansas. And I didn't realize until just now that I forgot to add in a way to tell size so if I need to retake them I can do it in the morning. Thank you so much for all your help.
  5. Hey everyone. I found these in a creek while traveling around Ohio. The areas are known for fossils, but I can't tell if these are actually teeth or if they are just some kind of rock formation. Any insight would be much appreciated.

    Do you see what I see?

    Hello everyone, I am hopeful that I can get some information about this rock/fossil. I see quite a few different shapes in this guy here, but I need to make sure that my imagination is not running away with me. I don’t know if I should keep trying to brush clean, to show what I believe is the fossil. or continue. My Indian artifacts consume a lot of spare time, and space enough as it is. but now this guy got me really intrigued. thanks in advanced everyone.
  7. I'm visiting DeLand for a week and a half, and really want to find a spot to search for fossils or shark teeth, haven't found many online and I know people have their own secret spots. Pm me locations if you don't want to share them publicly guys, I am only hand searching with a few family members. I am willing to drive a couple hours to spend a day hunting fossils
  8. I just recently came across a very helpful website: https://www.microbehunter.com/microscopy-forum It is a friendly site, and I’ve gotten quick replies to some very specific questions about a vintage microscope I recently acquired. There are a number of forums, including one for people looking to buy/sell parts. Some of the folks there have some pretty obscure old microscope parts if you ever find yourself in need of some. They’re also good for advice on how to setup and optimize your microscope.

    Not necessarily fossils but correct me if im wrong.

    I need these pictures to find the right person, I have tons of pictures for they are all local to me. I can send examples to you. Ok so here's what I think, I think these rocks were formed right after the ice age, from animals from right when the ice froze over. They must have thawed out turning into the ocean, (animals becoming part of the ocean floor from all the sediment and debri) then after millions of years they became part of the earths crust, then being broken up by an earthquake or maybe an asteroid?! Maybe a bunch of meteorites that struck one after another. Who can tell
  10. I am sorry for the length of this txt. I am looking for help verifying the ID of a fossil I've been finding for close to 20 years now. It is a very dificult to see poorly fossilized shrimp or trilobite like creature that everyone I've spoken to tells me can not exist. I am having a dificult time getting pictures that people on other sites will take seriously as the lines defining the structure of the creature are nearly undistinguishable from the stone itself. Everyone wants to call it pareidolia and say there is nothing there. Four or five individuals I've spoken to, whom have taken the t
  11. Hello. There are many indicators to be authentic, but being such a common piece to forge, I would like someone to confirm it for me. This is the description of the sale: ...size of 10.5 cm... a 13 x 9.5 cm concretion. ... it has restorations.
  12. Hiya everyone. I’m thinking of buying this fossil collection just wanted to know if any of them are real of if they are reproductions. Thanks
  13. Please find attached pictures of an oddly shaped and structured object. It was found while removing a deep rooted tree. This was in Royse City in Hunt County. After having no luck identifying it, somebody suggested this forum for guidance. Thank you for your review. Joe

    I don't know

    Not sure what this is it was found in Iowa
  15. KadyJane

    Northeast Iowa

    I found this in Black Hawk County Iowa. It is approx. 9cm x 11cm x 3cm. My guesses are always wrong even when (or especially when) I use Google images so I'm looking forward to being in the right spot for help. Thanks
  16. Hi everyone looking at buying this hyphalosaurus just wanting to make sure it’s real as it looks a little off to me.

    Can anyone identify this?

  18. So after finding out that the previous spinosaurus toe claw was fabricated I went to a fossil website and found this now I managed to find a hig res image and a full video I hope this can help identifying YouCut_20210508_152721970.mp4
  19. Hello there. I'm new to fossil collecting and just wanted some help with identifying if this is a real spinosaurus tooth or not. The seller advertised it as real and claims it comes from Morocco. I was recommended this seller, and they've got good reviews, but I think I'm just a bit paranoid after reading a lot of stories about fake fossils. Unfortunately I can't remove it from it's case so I can't show off all the angles. Any help is much appreciated. I'm also new to this site, so if I'm doing this wrong, I apologise!

    Mystery fossil in flint

    I've found a fossil in flint during flint knapping. I've exposed as much of it as I could. It's about one centimetre long and one centimetre wide. Cant know how old the flint is. It's from the Negev desert Israel. It was found in a wadi with debris from multiple periods (Triassic-Eocene) cant be sure. I think it might be a crinoid stem but I'm far from being sure. Any help would be appreciated!
  21. I found this pteranodon wing for sale and was wondering if it's real or not
  22. Is this just a rock or could it be a skull? I'm thinking a rock but wanted to make sure before I got rid of it.

    Petrified Termite or ant colony

    This was near wear (as best I can tell) a tree was struck by lightning or burnt out at least 40 years ago. It is rock but I’ve soaked it but am scared to use vinegar? Should I chance it? Any idea what it is? It’s 5 inches in Links 4 inches high 3 inches deep this is a close-up picture
  25. Hiya everyone my sister got me this trilobite as a gift was wondering if it’s had any restoration to it
