  1. Hi, Purchased this Baltic Amber from Lithuania. Tried the black light test and the very clear amber turns opaque cream like color. Please see pics. Is this possibly fake? Thanks!
  2. I’ve made several trips to Greens Mill Run recently, lots of shark teeth and belemnites, large intact scallops and clams, large whale ribs and jaw bones and ear bones. However I have 3 fossils I cannot identify. Some pics are below: The top tooth is either mosasaur or crocodile, not sure which. The other two, I’m clueless. Any help would be appreciated!

    What dinosaur could this be from?

    Here are some images of what I recently found near Makoshika state park(around 5miles east of the park) - MT, Hell Creek formation. I suspect it is a theropod, but I am unsure and would love to hear some thoughts.

    Identification Lyme Regis

    Hi, I don't think this is a fossil looks like some kind of tooth to me but could be wrong, searched the internet but couldn't find anything like it! Could anyone help identify what it is? I found it in Lyme Regis yesterday. Thanks!

    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.
  6. I went fossil hunting today in a river and found this bone. I don't know if it is a fossil or just old bone. Can anyone help me identify it?
  7. I would appreciate some help identifying some of my latest finds. Since I am in Southern Indiana, I know many of my finds are silicified or geodized and I kind of know what some of them are but I want to be sure. I apologize if this post seems to be a bombardment of pictures that I am asking help identifying but I didn't want to post too many separate posts. Hopefully I've correctly uploaded pictures & if I am doing anything incorrectly please give me advise. First are what look to be turtle shells or are they just geodes moonlighting as turtle shells?

    What is this

    Hi all what could this possibly be. Found along a river bed in Canada. I think might be ivory because of the lines seen on the black side. Quite heavy,. Note the fossils in the growth lines on the totally flat/ smooth side.
  9. Another I seem to not be able to ID... Found about 20 - 30 feet in the ground encased in thick clay... East Feliciana, Louisiana.
  10. I found this in Alabama. I think it's a skull of some sort but every other time I've posted trying to get a fossil i.d. turns out all my " fossils " were just rocks lol. I love rocks and that will always be true but I'm getting a little discouraged with fossils . Please give me some good news that at least this is a real bone. Lol . It is 3 inches tall . 5 inches long and almost 3 inches wide.

    Petrified wood?

    Hi all! Is this petrified wood? I found it while hiking in Jackson Hole, WY. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I’ve posted these pictures around Facebook but haven’t gotten very many responses. Thanks!
  12. Hello guys... the three dolls here come from a Miocene (Langhien) site in France. First identification was "Trivia Coccinella" (but I onestly haven't found it anywhere). Could they be Trivia Dimitiatoaffinis? I'm using this website for a help (http://www.nmr-pics.nl/).. it looks that Trivia (or Niveria) Dimitiatoaffinis could be the most plausible choice (considering period and location). I found an evenience also here (https://www.paleontica.org/id_system/fossil_id_search.php?zoek=47-0765): it looks quite similar... what do you think?:) thank you all G

    Seven-sided crinoid stem?

    This is an enlargment of a photograph I took a while back, where only later did I spot the odd fossil. Apologies for the low quality. I'm curious about the star-shaped object with seven corners. This is from the Madera Group in the Jemez Mountains of New Mexico, which is a Pennsylvanian carbonate shelf formation with abundant crinoids, brachiopods, and bryozoans. I've heard of star-shaped crinoid stem segments with five points, but not seven before. Any ideas?
  23. Hello I'm interested in any insight as to what this may be. It was found today March 2021 in my back yard heavily wooded area while I was clearing a trail to ride small ATVs I raked through a ft of overburden and sticks etc revealing the dirt below and found half dozen stone edges protruding through the surface. In an effort to make the trail smooth I began to extract the stones using a spade type shovel after having dug out the stones I picked each one up to throw off the trail and when I grabbed this I realized it was not the same weight actually near weightless and hollow slight rattling no
  24. So I started fossil hunting and collecting recently. I dont have much knowledge on fossil identification and am not even sure if some of the "fossils" I've found are even fossils and not just cool looking rocks. Was just hoping people more knowledgeable on the subject could share what they think are fossils and if they know what types they are.

    Fossilized coral?

    Hello!! I recently found a beautiful piece of (what I now know) seems to be honeycomb fossilized coral. I found it on my farm in Tennessee along with many other small fragments of this type of coral. This is the largest piece I have found and would love to know more about it!! I’d mostly like to find out close to how old it actually is? If anyone has some insight on this I’d love the help! Thank you!
