    Fossil Id and bone question

    Hi I have two questions. Both are southeast Michigan finds. The first is a phallic fossil coral or something. Not sure what. The other is a deer bone with unusual growth on it. Cancer? Any help would be appreciated.
  2. In 2008, I found one of the prizes of my collection amongst a pile of sand and broken bits at Calvert Cliffs. I knew from seeing museum specimens of Isognomon maxillata that even with the tip broken off, this was a great find. After admiring it on my shelf every day since, I decided to share it. Today it has a new home at the Delaware Museum of Natural History, which did not have any of this species or much of anything from that region amongst its 2,000,000+ mollusk specimens. Along with the Isognomon, I donated a Chesapectin nefrens shell with a number of pearl buds on the inside and a Tongu
  3. Hi there, I would like any help on identifying this potential fossil I found. It was found in West Midlands of England, UK. I don't live near the ocean however this was found amongst a pathway covered in pre-destructed rocks so it may explain the displacement. As you can see, it appears quite mollusc-like and it has tiny bristles on the right hand side, almost saw-toothed at the edge. It also can be seen with a bottom layer with appears on the left hand side of the rock. It is striped and has red speckles at the edge. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm quite inexperience

    Whelk Shell?

    Hey All, I found this today while looking for sharks teeth in Charleston, SC. I am guessing this is a knobbed whelk, is that correct? How do I know if it is fossilized or not? Also, for anyone who knows the area, are these rare in the greater Charleston Area? I know for all the hours I have spent looking for teeth at this particular spot I have never seen one fully intact. Thanks in advance!

    Three oddities

    the first is this coprolite? ..I have seen some with odd colored patterns and was wondering....the second is what I think is some sort of shell in matrix?... found in gravel deposit from Brazos River west of Houston Texas.
  6. Hi everyone today in the creek I found some nice brachiopod fossils here are some photos
  7. I found this very complete snail/mollusk looking fossil, it’s the first time I’ve seen the shell and body shape of a snail type organism preserved equally well in a fossil I’ve found- can anyone help tell me what organism it is specifically and from what time period? I found it in Southampton, Ontario in my rock garden, so I don’t know whether the rocks from the rock garden are from a quarry or the shores of Lake Huron (I would guess they’re from Lake Huron, but I don’t know). Thanks for your help, I’ve been holding onto this for years and always been curious as to what it is!

    Please confirm if these are corals

    All of these came from Alluvial gravels in creek close to Trinity river. Only one I'm confident about is first one, obviously coral, but is it recent and should it have been here? It feels and clinks like glass. Next one I'm not sure if it's geological or not, seems to have well defined tubes of some sort. Next one lacks detail, plant, borrows,coral? Last one I thought was shell but looking at the rest of it not so sure, looks like it had a center with the tubes surrounding it, coral? rugose? Oh and second one is same size as last one.

    Lake Michigan Help Please

    Greetings all! Recently pulled this from south shore Lake Michigan near the Mack Straights. Curious as to what the fossilized material is inside the upper shell half which is approximately 2.5cm across. Any ideas? Bonus points if you can identify the shell too Thank you!
  10. 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
  11. Found these on last year's fishing trips on the Trinity, there are no gravel banks on this stretch just dirt and some rocks here and there. Now is this a stone with a butt crack or very worn Echinoid? Has the makings of one, if it is I've never seen one turned to stone like this, how old might this be? The seashell was a surprise to find, I know it's worn but is it a whelk? And would it be pleistocene?

    Fused Oysters

    From the album: Delaware Fossils

    Two Exogyra cancellata shells from the Cretaceous spoils of Reedy Point, Delaware. Although Exogyras typically detached themselves from their anchorage while still very small - about 2-3 cm - these two animals continued to live and grow together. The lower valve is about 10 cm on the long axis.

    I might have one this time!

    Fingers crossed, I think there's a real fossil in this mess! I accidentally chipped the part I think is a fossil, bone or shell maybe, with my tile nippers trying to chip away the bigger rocks in the conglomerate-- the nippers are for sherd crafts ONLY from now on! However, the pattern of lines in the part in question is as it was when I found it in the lower canal along the Delaware river near Pt. Pleasant, PA. My husband, King of Pareidolia, thinks it's a turtle. I'm not going to see things I can't hypothesize on, I'm here instead.
  14. Hi everyone this is Matt again. Today in the creek I found 2 neat brachiopod fossils. Here are some photos:
  15. This is Isorthoceras sociale (Hall, 1877) from the Ordovician Elgin member of the Maquoketa from the well known Graf, Iowa location. They exhibit unusual preservation, including nacre and hollow camerae. According to Invertebrate Fossils (1952) by Moore, et al,, shells of nautiloids have an inner annulus layer, middle nacreous layer and outer porcelaneous layer. Is the circular pitted texture on the outside then the remnant of the porcelaneous layer of the shell or some sort of epibiont like a bryozoan? Plate 220 of Shimer and Shrock's Index Fossils o
