  1. My son will be vacationing in Florida for the next week and a half with his grangmother. Since the Peace River will be off limits for fossil collecting due to seasonal high water flow, I was hoping he could grab a gallon of micro-fossil matrix from along the river. Does anyone know any sites along the Peace River or any other sites I suppose where I could send them to grab a scoop or two? One positive might be submerged areas might give access to spots that normally would be considered bank and technically illegal to scoop. Thank you for any help. Pics are just a few of many small

    6/17/21 Trip

    From the album: Post Oak Creek

    Nothing extraordinary, but I found an area with several chunks of matrix with teeth in them.

  4. Is this tooth remounted on the matrix? Or it is a natural piece?

    Trilobite; Eldredgeops

    Is there anyone in Ontario that can direct me how to better expose more of this fossil or who I can pay and mail it to for revealing more of the body of this guy? Please? I suspect he’s almost curled ATM and the bottom of the rock is his back with a lot of magiexi between his and his mouth and covering him completely. Is it even possible to expose more of his body/limbs?
  6. A few more of my favorite finds from the Aurora Fossil Museum Matrix - I am not even half way through the two gallon bags of matrix from my purchase! SO MUCH COOL LITTLE STUFF!! Being micros, all specimens are under 1/4 inch Shark Teeth: Top Cookie Cutter, Sand Tiger Bottom : Catshark, Unknown Not Shark Teeth: Top: Not sure what this one is, Second one is Raja Bottom: Fish Porgy and Dasyatidae Top: Echinoid spine and tubercle Bottom: Burrfish mouthplate and a bit o' Crab I think Not sure a
  7. Hey Folks, My five year old son found this 10lbs slab with shells embedded in it. There are more on the sides. I would say that each shell is about 3 inches long. What is the best way to clean this up? Should I buy a dremel? E & B

    Nice Little Shark Tooth

    It has been a bit since I have done a post. It has been over a year since I have been out hunting. I am days away for things to open up for me.... finally. I am ready to just live in a creek and look for fossils for weeks. I have been lucky to pass the time over the year looking through matrix from different locations. I was very fortunate and extemely thankful to receive some matrix from @sharkdoctor. These two squalus teeth are from matrix in Calvert Formation in central Virginia. Each of them are just a tad over 1mm. Found this one last week Just found t

    Eocene matrix specimens

    Hello guys. I have found this collection of specimens on the matrix on the eocene era site near city of Vrgorac, Republic of Croatia. In my humble opinion, it is quite interesting, considering the number of different species included. In other words, there is really a lot going on So far, I have only identified some kind of solitary coral (picture 2 and 3) and several species of nummulites (pictures 4,5 and 6). I would greatly appreciate any help with identification of other specimens. Thank you in advance.

    Stabilizing Indonesian Matrix

    Hi, I have an Indonesian Meg on matrix. I didn't expect the matrix to be so soft. It's chipping. Is there any way to stabilize it? I was thinking coating it in an Elmers and water mix.
  11. Thanks to a post from Candace ( @thelivingdead531 ) I found out about the Aurora Fossil Museum's box o' matrix that they sell! (all moneys benefit the museum, which was a bonus). I got two Gallon Bags of matrix to sift through and wow....some really great stuff! They send a really good ID sheet too. But of course, there's even more info here on the FF! So here are some of my favorite finds so far. I've only gone through about 6 cups of matrix!! SO MUCH MATRIX! I havn't really done much ID'ing yet (the shark teeth) but my favorite by far is the crab stuff....love those pincers!! And the colo
  12. Hi Everyone, I have several verts that are encased within the red matrix from NSR. Has anyone soaked that in a vinegar solution? If so, did it work? Did it hurt the fossils? If there is another way to remove it let me know. Planko
  13. Finally getting around to posting some of my New York Devonian Penn Dixie matrix finds! So much neat crinoid stuff, the occasional trilo bit and some other goodies! Someday, I hope to visit and maybe find some "Big" stuff! The CRINOIDS.....so many amazing shapes. I love Crinoid Geometry: (all are around 2-5 mm) The Trilo Bits: (2-5mm) probably Eldredgeops A friend was trying to type in Pygidium and it auto corrected to Pudgy Idiom.....so yeah. That's what they are now. Plus this nice sized one (5mm) in situ with a crinoid!
  14. I am looking to trade for some unprepared ammonites, ideally multiples or pieces with other shells on them as well. I have no real preference for the location, and they do not need to be rare species. I can offer shark teeth of all different kinds, megalodon, hastilis, great white and most other species. I also have some mammal fossils and lots of petrified wood. I would post pictures of all but I am away at University for a couple more weeks, and am hoping to arrange a trade for when I get back home for the winter.

    Aurora Fossil Museum micro matrix

    I have a quick question for those that have bought and gone through their micro matrix from the Aurora Fossil Museum. Did you wash it before going through it, or wash it after you've found your fossils? I got the pack with the mini screen for sifting, but I'm a little afraid to wash it all first and risk losing tiny teeth. How did you all go about doing yours, or what do you think the best way would be?
  16. I just got a spinosaurus tooth by my girlfriends dad for christmas and i have a few Questions: 1. Is it real or how much of it is fixed up with some kind of matrix? 2. What is that bright white part glimpsing between the sand? 3. Should i try to free the tooth from the dark/sandy part, to reveal his real beauty? 4. If yes, how? Thank you for your time!
  17. So i got some fossils i need to prep mostly hard limestone. But i use hand tools. Any tips on how to make it easier? Is there a way to soften the limestone?
  18. Hiya! I got some New York Devonian matrix (Penn Dixie) and would appreciate some help (or confirmation!) with the ID's of a few thingies. Thanks!! 1. Is this a fish tooth perhaps? Size 1/8 inch 2.Is this a Trilobite cephalon? Size 1/8 inch 3. I thought this was a coral, but saw on the Penn Dixie site something that looked like it but it said it was a Fish Plate? Size 1/4 inch 4. Not sure what this is....probably part of a crinoid? Size 1/8 inch 5. Not sure at all. Flat plate Size 1/8 inch

    Lee Creek Matrix Under A Microscope

    Hi. For Father's Day my kids got me an electic microscope. I have been picking through Lee Creek matrix that I purchased to get me through quarantine. I am really not familiar with smaller teeth so it would be greatly appreciated if anyone can confirm my ID. Enjoy the pics. For all the Dad's, I hope you had a great Father's day! This tooth is 2-3mm. I thought it was small tooth sand tiger but the root seems rather large. I have been all through Elasmo.com and I cannot find a match. The next 2 teeth cusps and the blade remind me of a mackerel but the root d
