  1. My wife and I celebrated her birthday last night at a local restaurant on the beach. It was lovely. The Inn & Restaurant have been in existence for over 120 years, and in the lobby have a seashell exhibit filled with shells that were found about 100 years ago. I noticed some incrustations on a Turkey Wing sea shell that I did not recognize... I am hopeful some one can easily identify, so I can check out what they looked like as fossils. @digit @MikeR @Coco Thanks , Jack
  2. I made this a few years ago and I'm not sure if I shared it with the group or not. Its something I came up with and thought it would be cool to frame and hang near my desk. Its not fancy and the verbiage might not be precise but I think you get the Idea Besides fossils, I collect specimen grade seashells, minerals, skulls, and artifacts (I include artifacts into Natural History). I made/printed one off for each collection. Happy Collecting!

    Help!

    Hello all, this an amazing forum for those to learn from one another and have the opportunity to see wonderful find they would not otherwise have the pleasure of viewing while gaining knowledge. That being said, my 8 year old loves fossils and came across his very first personal find in Texas. By chance can anyone assist with any insight on the details of the fossil? Thank you!!!!

    New Member - Fossil Finds?

    Hi guys, I've found the website while searching for information about some possible fossils I found around where I live in over several years. I pictured those and hopefully someone here is able to put a name / species / period to them. I am not a collector. I have always been fasciniated by geology, rocks and natural history. Knowing what they are will be very exciting for me. Number 1 : I cannot reemember where exactly I found it but should be some 100km's inland from Aegean sea, close by an ancient city called Pergamon in Modern Turkey. I was simply wal

    Florida Fossil Shell ID Needed

    This fossil shell was found on Marco Island beach (Naples, Florida). Any help identifying what it is would be greatly appreciated.

    Possible shell fossil?

    Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum! My name is Patricia and I live in Portugal, Europe. I found this item which seems to be fossilized and I was hoping you could help me confirm this suspicion of mine and possibly ID it aswell. It is totally made of rock but it seems like it has the form of a conch shell. I found it in Portugal, Algarve, at the beach of Portimão. As you can see it's about 4 cm long. Thanks for your time!

    Help with Seashell with holdfast

    It's Dave again, looking for help with this one Thanks everyone!
  8. Hi all, I found this sea shell by a Malaysia beach. It was unusual in that of the thousands and thousands of "fresh-looking" shells around, this one looked incredibly old and felt more rock like than shell like. A museum staff examined this and concluded it is a Murex shell that's at best Pleistocene-aged but he admitted he isn't a specialist in sea shells. I asked the FB group, Fossil Seashells and got the following answers: 1) Chicoreus brunneus - Max 15 years - Fossils are found deep in sediments or on land in sediments, definitely NOT Fossil 2) Some scie

    Shell?

    Found this interesting shell today. Seems to be sandstone. Thought it was a walnut shell at first. Can anyone ID?

    More fossil? Bivalves from Milnerton

    Hi all, I found those bivalves on Milnerton beach (Cape Town, South Africa). The beach is known to have fossil shark teeth and whale bones, but I don't know if they have fossil seashells. They do have modern ones. Those shells, because of many different features, do make me think that they are fossil. Anyways, I'm interested in 2, if not 3 things: • Species • Fossil or modern • (if fossil) how old If this species is (locally) extinct, then I think I can quite confidently put them down as fossil, but otherwise I'm not sure. The things that make me think t

    Fossil or really worn shell?

    Hi! So I found a shell one of my old friends gave me when I was a child and I remember he told me this was a very old shell, I'm curious if this is a modern shell thats just really worn or if it's a fossil. I don't know enough to be able to tell myself sadly. Thank you!
  13. Happy New Year everyone! I found this awesome little star-like fossil on a Tampa Bay beach in Florida. It's about an inch wide and has crystals in the center. It has a volcano look with grooves and appears to be a mold of something, but what? Thanks in advance.
  14. Hi everyone, I found this fossilized seashell in Tarpon, Florida on a fossilized shell trail. Original formation unknown. It looks almost complete and has great ornamentation and detail. It has 2 boreholes that penetrated just the surface of the shell. It is approximately 1 3/4" x 1 3/4". Can you ID it? Many thanks in advance.
  15. I have recently found a fossil of Conus seashell in Macedonia, in the region of Shtip, to be precise. I want to know what is the ID of this fossil. Can anyone help me to indentify it? Thanks in advance.

    Seashell from SE Minnesota

    Hi everyone, i am new to the forum, I am from the east coast of the US but spend my summers in Southeastern Minnesota. I found this (what I think is an oyster shell or bigger Brachiopod) while agate hunting near Winona MN. But I have no idea, that is why I am posting. The Interesting thing about this fossil is that it is whitish with what looks like little worms or possibly sea weed? The shell is 2 inches long (50.8 MM) and 1 inch and 3/4 wide (44.45 MM). Please let me know if you need any other info to help identify what it is.
  18. I found these 2 pieces antiquing in Tennessee (the shell?) and Florida (the coral piece). I realize these pieces didn't necessarily originate in these states...The color of the shell is interesting to me (goldish) and it has some sheen on some parts but not all over. (natural or lacquered?) What does the color tell us? It was in a baggie and simply labeled "fossil". The coral measures 5 1/4" tall. I know it's coral but was wondering if it is fossilized. Any info on either would be greatly appreciated. Fossil? Period? Any other interesting tidbits relative to where I found them, i.e. coul

    Mold Fossil of Shells?

    Hi, I'm a rock collector/hunter and found many of these shell imprints in limestone rocks on the beach. This one looked like a bullseye or pictogram. Is this considered a fossil? Does anyone know what type of shell and/or geological time period? Thanks!
  20. Hi all, I have been having trouble finding a good guide to use in order to ID fossil seashells (mainly gastropods and bivalves) of the Neogene-Quaternary of Western Europe (mainly Belgium/Netherlands). So, I'm turning to you guys: does anyone of you have a nice up-to-date website/online paper that I could use in order to help me ID all of my different seashells? Preferable with clear photos/drawings of the different species. Thanks in advance! Max
  21. My 18 year old son and I went on our 1st ever fossil hunt and were very succesful, at least we think so. We didn't find anything in the locations that were mentioned as being fossil rich but after looking around outcroppings and riverbeds for hours with nothing to our name, we decided to go for a walk before heading back to Washington, while hoping it might still produce something. By now we had become 'seasoned' in finding outcroppings that might contain fossils of course. We are fast learners. ;-) And yes, not too far into our walk we came across something that looked like an ou
  22. A 380 million year old lingula brachiopod I found in NY and a recent example I won in an auction from Florida. This little brachiopod is an example of a living fossil. I've been looking for one of these recent inarticulate brachs for a loooooooooong time. Thanks Mikey

    Conch shell from Florida

    Hi all, From Cris & Kyle, along with a few other awesome seashells, I got these two great conch shells. They were found somewhere in Putnam County, Florida, and are likely from the Nashua Formation (early Pleistocene). They seem to be part of the conch shells, the Strombidae family. But I really don’t know what species. Anyone know what it could be? Thanks in advance, Max

    Seashell from Florida

    Hi all, This great little Gastropod was given to me by Cris & Kyle from Fossil Voyages. They found it somewhere in Putnam County, Florida. They said it was likely from the Nashua Formation, which is early Pleistocene. So I’m trying to put a species name on it, but I can’t even find the family! If you could help with ID in any way (even pointing out the family that you think it might be part of would help; of course going straight to genus or species is better) I’d be more than glad to hear your thoughts! Thanks in advance! Max

    Florida Olive shell

    Hi all, So I got this gorgeous olive shell as a gift from Cris & Kyle from Fossil Voyages, as they knew I was a big fan of fossil seashells. Unfortunately they don’t remember where exactly they found it, but they know it was in Putnam County, Florida. They also said that it was likely from the Nashua Formation (which is early Pleistocene). So I looked around on neogeneatlas.org , but not a single shell from the Olividae family seemed to come from this formation. I then checked fossilworks.org , and found some results, but googling for pictures to compare the species with was qu
