    Crinoid second look

    I think this calyx I found today and prepped (on the left) is a Macrocrinus konincki, but I've only found one other one. I typically find Macrocrinus verneuilianus (on the right), so anyone familiar with crinoids please let me know what you think! Thanks, Jackson
  2. I had some spare time this past weekend, and a fossil hunt sounded nice. Bad weather had made that impossible the previous month. The weather was great out finally, so I went out Sunday (3/7/2021) to good old Truman Lake to look for Burlington Formation crinoids. I mainly just wanted to find and keep nicer, intact crinoids that day. It's a good walk to the crinoid hunting grounds from my car, and there is fossiliferous chert material along the way. I decided to split one chunk of chert, which contained only one single platyceras gastropod steinkern. After finishing work on it, I hi

    Brachiopod lophophore

    Been staying busy lately, but I had some spare time this weekend so I worked a stockpiled block of chert I had in the garage. I took this block home specifically because of the exposed partial brach sticking out of the hard chert. To reduce the size of the rock, I first split it in half which ended up being a lucky split as it didn't damage the brachiopod fossil or fracture the chert in a challenging way. After splitting the chert, I removed the steinkern from the rock and picked away the intact half of the shell not exposed with a sharp needle in hopes of some golden spirals. Easy to see whic
  4. For those of you familiar with crinoids of the Burlington Formation, (Mississippian) I would like to get a second opinion. This calyx is partial, but I believe there is enough present to confirm my guess for ID as Agaricocrinus planoconvexus? I haven't collected even a partial of this species yet, so confirmation would be exciting. Thanks for your thoughts, Jackson Top Bottom Side shots This other one is probably complete. If it takes me prepping this one to get a 100% confirmation, please let me know and I will do so. (Would rather kee
  5. While I was out today I found a nice crinoid in a big chunk of crinoidal limestone. I decided to take one risky wack to the opposing side of the calyx with my Estwing at the rock, which ended up working out well. Most of the time I wouldn't bother because it never goes this smoothly, but I have a lot of this species so I didn't mind if I busted it. The circular calyx is very reminiscent of Azygocrinus. After splitting the rock, I took the half home with the crinoid. The rest of the work was done with airscribe. I'd say it came out pretty well. Once I had the size of the

    Chert fossil? Unknown

    Hello, I found this yesterday while out searching for crinoids. It's a piece of chert with some weird cylinder shaped thing on the right, and it has a groove that runs through the center. Over a year back I found the exact same thing, except that one was much longer being probably over a foot long in length and again ontop a slab of chert. The one i found yesterday was around 4 to 5 inches I would guesstimate. I've done a lot of fossil searching, and this is only the second time I've ran into whatever this is. Is it even a fossil? Reluctantly, I didn't take either one home on either occasion d
  7. Today's the first nice day we've had all week here, and on top of that lucky I got the rest of the week off of work. I decided to go out and search for crinoids for a few hours. Last time I went out I did recon on a favorite spot of mine, and I would say that effort paid off today. I ended up hitting a new section at the area that is usually underwater. Well anyway, heres the finds. Only about half are cleaned up. Starting with Azygocrinus rotundus Macrocrinus verneuilianus Uperocrinus pyrif
  8. While I was out doing recon on a new fossil spot today due to the lake's low water level, I ended up finding a nice terebratulid sp. brachiopod with its support imbedded atop a fair sized (over a foot and a half in length, about 3 inches in thickness) slab of chert. I took it back home with me, and after a few wacks all was done. I like how this one came out. It sits upright on it's own for display, and it also has a side window exposing more angles of the druzy covered small loop support.

    Sparrow foot creek

    I ended up going out yesterday for a good portion of the day to my favorite creek. I've collected so many treasures here now that I don't mind sharing my favorite creek now, and figured I would show how a normal stream can have more than meets the eye. Of course these fossils are by no means easy pickings, as it requires splitting large slabs of chert. This is the more risky way to collect the fossils as they are delicate steinkerns that can easily break. The chert can also fracture in dangerous ways so I always wear glasses when I split chert, and would be a blind man if I didn't! Well heres
  10. Hi there, last fossil hunting trip I went on a week or so ago I found some nice fossils and than this. I was hunting some Burlington limestone/ chert that day. Not exactly sure what this is, a possible bryozoan encursting part of a brachiopod valve? I find a lot of pieces of brachiopod valves in the crinoidal layers, where this was laying so that would be my guess. Hopefully it shows, but the entire top side is covered in tiny pits. Thanks for the help, Jackson. I know this was collected from the Burlingtong Limestone. Heres an Azygocrinus rotundus I found about a
  11. Hello there! As it's getting nicer outside and things slowly turning back to normal, many of us are able to go out and enjoy the weather again. I journeyed to one of my favorite Burlington exposures just 10 minutes from my home. As it was so nice outside, I ran into a lot of friendly fishermen. Not unlike usual, its just me there for the fossils! My favorite spot I'm heading to has me walking a few miles before I start to hit the sweet spots. Along the few mile walk there, it looks like the beavers have been busy. You can tell as you approach the Burlington limestone alone by
