    Carboniferous limestone fossils??

    I am wondering what fossils you can see in these rocks. they are all carboniferous limestone (prehaps not the red/brown one). I can see Bivalves, coral, crinoids, brachiopods (I think), And nothing else. Why aren't there other carboniferous life. (I understand soft parts go) These rocks are packed with fossils, what can a real paleotologist see?
  2. I've had these for close to 20 years now and have shown some of them before but figured it was time to do a proper job of looking for info. (If I did before, I can't find the topic) I know nothing about these, either ID or location. They were part of a batch of fossils I received from an old rockhound couple in Nanaimo, which wasn't too carefully curated (a common problem with rockhounds/casual fossil collectors). Looking for info on the mystery items from that lot is what brought me to the Forum in the first place more than 10 years ago. I know Riley's Canyon, Utah has red corals, b

    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.

    Unknown fossil carboniferous

    Here is a fossil I found in some carboniferous limestone. Does anyone know what it is. It was found in the limestone of the berwick upon tweed area N england.
  6. Hello fellow fossil hunters. Below is a photo of the array of fossils I found. Each fossil is labelled with a number and it would be awesome if I could get each one identified. I thought ahead and took the photo on grid paper with each square being 5mm. Item 1 is just some quartz crystal I picked up, item 4 is a piece of some unidentifiable shell and the rest are legit fossils. I am a rooky and an amateur so please let me know if I get anything wrong or if I need to add any more detail. Location: Batesford Limestone quarry, Geelong, Victoria, Australia. Geology: Sometime betw
  7. This triangular prism is covered in small fossils of coral, bivalves, and trace fossils. The main question I have is about these 6 curvy lines going through the entire rock. Bioturbation? Stromatolite? Erosion? It was found just outside of Las Vegas.
  8. I found this oddity today while examining some fine grained finds. This is basically soft limestone, where the rock is pretty soft and most of the calcite has been dissolved. I forgot to include a scale, but if I were to guess, it's about 1/2" across the structure (12.7mm). I plan on measuring again. There were several of these throughout the piece, but this was the most prominent. My guess is some sort of Bryozoan.
  9. Hello again, I was doing some surface collecting in Oakland County michigan-- typically the fossils around here are preserved inside of pieces of limestone... I'm no expert on fish or sharks so I'm not sure what exactly this imprint is, but it reminds me of a tooth. Would anybody be able to confirm/deny this? The rock in question is about the size of a dime. Thank you!

    Fossil Identification in Western Wisconsin

    *Higher resolution and many more images linked below to Google Drive for a clear view* Fossil: Large limestone rock containing hundreds of marine fossils and with what appears to be a bone roughly 3cm in diameter. As well what appears to be the remains of other bone structures. Location: Found 10 miles from the Mississippi River near Ellsworth, Wisconsin USA (Western Wisconsin) in a low valley area that looks like an ancient river bed. Rock Measurements: Roughly 15cm x 28cm My Understanding of Geology and Paleontology: 2/10 *There are
  11. 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
  12. We are on the edge of the Vale of Clwyd in North Wales surrounded by limestone. Much of this limestone is full of fat, coiled fossils which I initially thought were ammonites (on the basis that in my ignorance coiled fossil = ammonite!). I have since learned that there are no ammonites in these rocks - correct?. Today though, my wife was doing some garden digging and found the specimen shown in the photos attached, loose in the soil/rock debris. This looks like an ammonite to me! Can anyone tell me what it is and whether this is its 'birthplace' so to speak. The scale in the pictures is MM.

  15. Yesterday: fossil hunting with my girlfriend in Limburg. Many Cretaceous limestones and good fossil specimens! Including a really big and complete Pycnodonte vesicularis (Lamarck, 1806). My second biggest Pycnodonte. Many belemnites (including a real cool black one!), two pieces (including a big one) from the same genus (Pycnodonte) and one sea urchin Echinocorys sp. or Echinocorys scutata (Leske, 1778). Also one recent cow/bovid tooth and a piece of vase. The two photo's on the right are from another (earlier) trip (fossils are on the ground in a field. Finds: one sea
  16. Only one I've ever found like this. What it is exactly, I don't know. Found in a load of limestone road base, likely from a local mine.
  17. From what I've learned crinoids aren't from around here, prob from way upstream fill rock. Here being Dallas creekbed in Eagle Ford shale. Its so unique with the patterns, almost looks carved, just guessing part of a crinoid because of the cylinder shape. What the heck is it?

    Fossil Identifications

    Thanks beforehand. My young granddaughters (8 and 5 yo) have went fossil hunting in their backyard around Lake Cumberland in Kentucky and as I am not experienced in identification and cleaning techniques I appreciate all help given to identify several examples of what we collected.
  19. Found this on gravel bank in creek close to DFW, in a narrow band of Alluvium smack dab in middle of Fluviatile terrace deposits. I'm not sure what to make of it, appreciate input!

    Home Conodont Extraction

    So, in trying to identify my local limestone for sure, I've gotten the need to try to extract conodonts, and I'd for sure like to see other microfossils. I know this has been discussed here before, but I was wondering what might be the correct or tried and tested method for home, using obtainable chemicals. The last thread I found was talking about lab processes and clouds of white smoke. I've heard different things from using acids (Vinegar), Hydrogen Peroxide (3% limit at Walmart), to Kerosene. Also a need for sieves, filters, etc. Curious for a guide or advice for ef

    limestone shelf

    Hi. Found among the huge limestone layer at the Caney River in central Washington County, northeastern Oklahoma. Pennsylvanian. It's a little closer to Kansas than to Tulsa. A few miles east of the Osage Hills (or Rolling Hills of the Osage, depending on the which map).

    Mississippian fossil, Arizona

    This little thingy was in Mississippian Redwall limestone in central Arizona. It was in a section of the Redwall with very few other fossils. It's about 10mm long and 7mm wide. What do you think?
  23. One of the nice things about being on the team to design a new facility is you can get what you want. All retaking walls and benches are locally quarried Stoner Limestone from Weeping Water, Nebraska. I can’t wait to get my scribe and chisels out...
  24. I'm looking for assistance identifying a large fossil that was in with skids of limestone rockery from the Niagara Escarpment. I have uploaded a series of pictures to Flickr https://flic.kr/s/aHsmTVvrFN and attached one image. It looks like a type of coral. There is lots of texture on the surface. When opened up, it is full of long columns. Thanks.

    Help with fossil ID for kids

    Hi, I hope this is ok to post! Whilst out on a walk we came across the attached fossil. Whilst I appreciate it doesn't seem much, its quite distinct and any help to identify it - and help educate the small hands which has been carefully cleaning it - would be very much appreciated. I might have some explaining to do that it isn't a t-rex We are located in Derbyshire, United Kingdom. If anybody has good references for teaching kids (6 year old and 3 year old) about fossils it would be great to have them.
