    Unknown Fossil Please Help Identify

    Hi I have a fossil I found while exploring an area near Dubbo NSW australia. I taught it was just petrified wood until I cleaned it and notice on one end has colour and looks like it could have fish fins on the side. The length is 300mm and width is at its widest point 180mm. It was just sitting on side of a dirt track and also has another part to it which I will pick up next time I'm out that way again. Any help in identifying what I have here would be much appreciated as I wouldn't have a clue other than what I think it is. Thanks

  4. Hello! First of all, I am not a geologist. This isn't my field of work. I am hoping somebody here can help me with this! Today I drove a few miles southeast of St George UT and into AZ. This place is amazing. Fossils everywhere. Just incredible stuff. Was out looking for crystals and whatnot... And unearthed these... Looking to what it is, a guess maybe on how old, and HOPEFULLY an explanation of what the small "hair looking" matter is. It looks like a root, and hair, I actually have no idea but this thing was entirely underground and inside this chunk of material tha

    New to Colorado

    Hey all, My names Braddock i just moved from Florida to Ft Collins, CO. I'm a new engineer out here and i do a decent amount of digging every year in my free time, i'm trying to explore my new state for fossils and minerals. I also have a side hustle where i weld custom stands for fossils/minerals/artifacts for people, still getting my workshop setup out here. Looking for dig buddies in the area to go hunting with, so i dont get hunted by the wildlife. I'll be searching the area west of my town soon for some rumored giant tourmaline. Also i have several connections and access to decent vertebr

  8. Hey everyone! I saw that the Spring Gem (+mineral +fossil) Show is set for November 7-8 and was hoping to go. I was wondering, has anyone here been to the previous shows? If so, how was it? Were there good fossils to be found?
  9. Aloha, here is the best of my collection. Since I moved together with my girlfriend, only the small and nice samples are on display, one showcase out of three. Looking forward to the day when we will have some more space. So it is a crowded mix of fossils, minerals, recent beachfinds and mosty selfmade or altered skeleton models. Sadly, only a small percentage of my fossils is selffound, although nearly all of the beach stuff is. There is the "poultry showcase", dedicated to Birds and pterosaurs (Parrot skull is a replica of course, as is the Pterosaur plate regrettabl

Tucson Hotel City Center Venue: official dates Feb 1 -15 Details and dealers/displays https://www.mineralshowslld.com/tucson One of the better venues for fossils in general, a few of good Shark and Dino dealers are present. Dealers start getting there early some will open as early as the 27th since most are in private rooms. Most by the 29th. The Main ballroom opens on the 30th where you find Displays and the Black Hills Insti

    Rice Krispie fossil

    This is a brown stone and about the size of a dime. When the dark brown is scratched it leaves a copper red under it. When the “Rice Krispie” dots pop out it leaves a smooth void and there are smaller crystalline pieces embedded in it. It has been soaked in water and maintains shape so I don’t think it’s mud. The Krispie ranged in color like well, teeth? Any help would be appreciated.
  13. L.S., Recently I was involved in a study on the growth of native copper porphyroblasts in a sample of mine prop wood from a Bronze Age copper mine on Cyprus. While the paper approaches the subject from a mineralogical/structural geological rather than a paleontological point of view, it might still be of interest to some of you. For a limited period of time, the paper can be downloaded freely via the following link: https://authors.elsevier.com/c/1a0ShhdGqSQ49 The work describes how the formation of copper porphyroblasts in the mine prop wood has locally def

    Lauderdale/ Limestone County line

    I’m VERY new to this but have had some luck( I think). I had them all separated but with the storms came a strong enough wind that a piece of a tree that my husband uses in his hand built smoke knocked the leg off my table and boom there they went and then had to chase my protectors to get some back. Anyway, does it make since that all the different items would be found in a very small section of my yard. The dog house is farther away. It may take a minute to up load the pics. Of course if you want to help ID any I would give you a Dixie land, “Bless You, child, Bless You!”

    What a great weekend

    Well folks Spring has finally arrived in Central New York! We actually had two days in a row of sun! The thermometer is reading 70º as I write this. Me and the boys were busy this weekend. Yesterday we collected some gypsum specimens, shot their BB gun and a found an old Coke bottle. Today we went to Briggs road for a short Trilo hunt, went fishing and went to one of the nicest waterfalls in our area. We all enjoyed being outdoors and soaking up the sun. While at the fossil site I found a huge spotted salamander wedged in between the shale. I felt bad for disturbing it but I didn't see it unti

    Gemworld 2019

    I wanted to let everyone know about our upcoming Mineral and fossil show held in Syracuse New York. If you have not already seen it posted on the forum's calendar of events, our show is Gemworld 2019. It is hosted by the Syracuse Gem & Mineral Society. It will be held at the New York State Fairgrounds Center of Progress Building Saturday July 13 from 10am- 6pm and Sunday July 14 from 10am- 4pm. If you will be in the area that weekend please come buy and check it out. I believe we do put on a great show. This year I will be helping out in the youth area making beaded bracelets for the kids.
  20. Well, it finally happened ... made the time to stop off this summer at the Rice Museum of Rocks and Minerals in Oregon. Specifically in Hillsboro, Oregon. And wow, WOW .. what a collection !! One that rivals or equals a good number of natural history museums that I have visited. The most impressive was the extensive collection of petrified wood. Some of the slabs could have easily swallowed me. The minerals, as you will see were also quite impressive. Outside there was a seeded rock pile that the kids could dig around in and save their treasures for a minimal fee .. 1.00/lb. The first

    Enamel lines in teeth

    So when I was taking a better look at my spinosaurus teeth I noticed that in the enamel part there are lines coming out from bottom to top, are these created by minerals or it was some kind of blood vessels or veins from when the animal was alive? Thanks.

    My collection

    Hello all, I recently saw a whole lot of collections on this forum, and they were all beautifel. Now I cleaned up my room (what's a hell of a task to me, I spended 8 hours) and I deceided to take pictures of the nicest part of my fossil and mineral collection. It's by far not as nice as most members here, but I still have decades to get a nice collection . It's a bunch of everything older then the cenozoicum, because I find it hard to choose what group of fossils I want to collect, trilobites or dinosaurs/ reptiles. Dinosaurs are pretty hard to get here without paying high import a
