    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

    Collecting trilobites

    Hey! This might be the wrong thread/topic but here it goes. I recently started collecting different species of trilobites. It would have been interesting to see what species others have collected and whether you can refer to some species in a medium price range that is worth collecting. I have a desire to compile a list for myself with different species that I can follow. Someone who has / knows about fine trilobites that are worth collecting? These are the species I have collected so far: - Flexicalymene sp (morocco) - Flexicalymene retrorsa - Coltraneia oufatensis -

    Jay's Prep Blog

    Okay, so everyone else is doing one it looks like, so I figured I would jump into the fray.
  4. I have been collecting fossils for a long time but am fairly new to preparation beyond scrubbing and light picking. I had the opportunity to collect at the Bob Carroll quarry near Clarita, Oklahoma last month. We got chased out by rain after just a few hours and when I left I wasn't sure whether I really had any decent trilobites or not. I knew I found some nice brachiopods and some cool trilo-bits (even the tails of the Huntoniatonias are pretty neat) but beyond that nothing else was obvious. I'm still working through the material I collected but I wanted to solicit some advice on two t
  5. Today I had the great pleasure of spending 9 hours with Fossil Forum Member @Monica while we visited Dave's Down To Earth Rock Shop and Prehistoric Museum in Evanston, Illinois and then we drove 90 miles NW of Chicago to the Burpee Museum in Rockford, Illinois. Monica flew from Ontario, Canada on Friday with her husband to attend the Stars Wars Celebration at the McCormick Place. Today she set time aside for me so we could do some Fossil stuff while here husband went back to the convention. After picking her up from her downtown hotel, we drove North on Lake Shore Drive so I could
  6. Hey everyone, I had an entire free afternoon yesterday so made my way out to DSR and Briggs rd. I haven’t been out there since the group hunt and I was curious to see if I could find pickings to split. I did a good amount of slab tossing and I know others did as well. People also got some newer areas going also and I was curious if I could work off those too. I started the day at Briggs rd because I did so well last time I was there. I was drooling for a 2nd shot! I didn’t find anything top shelf worthy but I did seem to stumble on more dipleura than
  7. Spent 8 hours yesterday mucking about in the Hungry Hollow Member, resorting to that section of the Widder Formation as there are no viable upper Widder outcrops at the moment. Nothing fabulous in terms of finds, but the HH Member is temperamental... High turbidity makes for a lot of fossils that are not hardy to come out as a puree. Corals dominate this stratum, at times making up more of the composition than matrix. It also means not much in the way of reliable bedding planes as most of this stuff comes out in chunks delineated by the corals. It can also be quite muddy/wet, and hard to pick

    Penn Dixie Round 1

    This year I pulled the trigger on heading to Penn Dixie for the Dig With the Experts weekend! Definitely would highly recommend . I drove up from Boston to the Buffalo area on Thursday and spent the day Friday digging with @Malcolmt and @JamesAndTheFossilPeach. It was a blast! Thanks again guys for giving me a lay of the land. Credit to @JamesAndTheFossilPeach for the find of the day with a giant Eldredgeops (pic below). Saturday and Sunday were spent looking for trilobites in the roped off Dig With the Experts section of excavated shale with some success. Monday I drove back to Boston, and s
  9. Back in January I bought a new 15 drawer cabinet and have slowly been transferring my collection to it. Going through my old finds, some of which have been boxed and/or bagged away I haven't seen for years has been a pleasure and some new gems have turned up that I had overlooked the first time around. There was this Actinodesma erectum, a pteriomorph bivalve which had broken when it was excavated last summer at Cole Hill.
  10. Hello all! It's almost spring, and that means it's time for @Kane and me to alter the geography of New York state once again! Current plans are to start at Penn Dixie on April 26th, then off to the DSR area on Saturday. Sunday is a mystery still, but we're working on it. As always, anyone is welcome to come out and join in the destruction, er... fossil hunting. Last year was a heck of a thing, lots of good stuff was found, and I think everyone had a pretty good time. @Pagurus, @JamesAndTheFossilPeach , @Fossildude19 , @Malcolmt, @Jeffrey P (I'm

    Trilobite Hunt in NSW

    G'day everyone! I have reccently come back from a three day trip to Forbes with the Australian Fossil Club where we looked for Ordovician and Silurian trilobites. We checked out the Silurian Cotton Hill Quarry as well as some new Ordovician sites around the town of Gunningbland. Fellow forum member @Foozil was also apart of the trip. Over the three days I ended up with many beautiful trilobite fossils and my first whole specimens! @piranha could possibly help with IDs? DAY 1 - Cotton Hill Quarry Friday morning my dad and I left home at 3:30 AM and began the 7 and
  12. Today, I decided to stop and see what @MeargleSchmeargl left behind at the Conasauga River trilobite location. I do like collecting at this Cambrian site. It is not a matter of finding trilobites, it is deciding which pieces you want to keep. I only spent about 1 hour there and did not collect any matrix, I just felt like splitting some pieces and finding a few trilobites. Nothing special was found and they we’re all Aphelaspis brachyphasis. As stated in @MeargleSchmeargl post, the River was low and the matrix was dry, thus making it very easy to split. I have only seen

    Trilobites in Norway

    This year's second hunt was successful, considering the snow. There is still a bit of snow covering some places. I was still lucky enough to find some ok fossils. The area where I found these trilobites is called fossildalen/fossilvalley in slemmestad (i`ve showed pictured from the area before). The fossils here in the area stem from the time periods of Cambrian, Ordovician and Silurian, a period of 541 million to 419 million years ago. At that time, Slemmestad was a seabed in a relatively shallow sea. The trilobites fossils I found are about 420 million years old I believe. I foun

    Penn Dixie 2019 Dig With the Experts

    Tickets are almost sold out! Don't miss your chance! Join us for our signature event — Dig with the Experts! This is our very popular, once yearly opportunity to unearth the best, most complete, and most unexpected fossils at Penn Dixie. We’ll have equipment do the heavy lifting and scientific experts on site to help with locating and identifying the best fossils. You’ll have to do your share of splitting and digging, of course, but you’re guaranteed to find something cool and interesting. Saturday, May 18: 9 am to 4 pm Sunday, May 19: 9 am to 4 pm Monday, May 20: 9
  15. I just went to the Floyd county Conasauga at a roadside site mentioned in https://www.researchgate.net/publication/264495630_Taxonomy_and_biostratigraphic_significance_of_some_Middle_Cambrian_Trilobites_from_the_Conasauga_Formation_in_western_Georgia (partly guided by a few locals). After searching, we found tons of nodules, and only a few exposed Trilo parts. It was only near the end of the trip that I realized that at this site, I might need to split the nodules open to find much in them. So I took a few decent sized ones with me to figure out what to do with them after I attempted to split
  16. Last Saturday (April 6th, 2019) my wife and I made our second trip to Tully, NY to search for trilobite fossils. Unfortunately this was the second time I was unable to find a complete trilobite; I'll keep searching for them in other locations. I did find some other fossils that I thought were interesting enough to keep. The first photo is of the hill in Tully that I searched. On our first trip I tried to cover the entire hill while we were there, on our second trip I concentrated on smaller areas and had better results with finding fossils. A gastropod foss
  17. So I just found out about two good fossil sites for trilobites only and hour away from my house! This is my first time going out looking for fossils ever and I am so excited! I gots me a spade, large flat head screw driver, thin pry bar, gloves and claw hammer. For prep tools I have an air scribe and compressor, steel dental/sculpting tools, mini files, polishing papers, and other small tools as I work with silver. The site is in Vermont and I am expecting wet, cool conditions. I wanted to get any tips or advice you may have for a first timer to help make my afternoon trip a success. Tri-Lo-Bi
  18. Day Two ; Locality Two (or Seven if you include Day One) Prepping and Retail, Erfoud, Morocco. 20th February 2019 Erfoud town itself is famous for its beautiful fossils, its skilled fossil preppers and also for its wide variety of fakes, composites, good and bad repair jobs and utter frankenfossils. A large percentage of fossils from Morocco that are available in shops and on the internet the world over originate from here or pass through the place. Fossils are sent here for prepping from all over the south and then sent from here everywhere in the country and abro
  19. I visited a small Paleozoic (Silurian) coral reef in Indiana the other day. No earth-shattering, jaw-dropping discoveries, but it's an interesting spot with dolomitized fossils. Here's a google earth view of the center of the reef. A nice mollusk, if anyone knows what species, let me know. It shattered when I tried to extract it, but I was able to glue it back together as you can see here. Sphaerexochus romingeri cephalon After extraction.. I believe this is a Platyceras:

    Trilobites

    This really cool trilobite came out of the wanakah shale of the Hamilton formation.
  21. So I am brand new to fossils and am having a hard time finding unprepared trilobites. I don't really have the ability to go hunt my own at this time but I want to get into preparation. I found the U-Dig site where I can order like 40lbs of shale but that's a bit much for me at the moment. I am just trying to find a few trilobites to get started and to get a feel for the tools and prepping. I was on online but had a hard time finding ones that had not already been prepped. Not to mention I have been warned about the risk of fraud buying trilobites on online. If anyone can direct me to where I c

    Isotelus Trilo Spots?

    Just visited the American Museum of Natural History, and one piece I saw there was a pair of Ordovician Isotelus Trilobites:l (iowensis?) Seeing this, I remembered that Isotelus Trilos were something that I was looking for. Anyone know of a site in/near Georgia?
  23. Hey everyone, As some may already know I’m in Austin Texas until Sunday. Leading up to the trip I couldn’t pinpoint any reliable Texas locations due to water level reports and people warning about water levels at some localities. Some of the places I was interested in were on rivers. I could have wasted a lot of time if I showed up with high water levels. I’m only here once to I needed to chose something with less of a gamble. So I figured I would just scratch my trilobite itch up in Oklahoma!! We arrived in Austin on Tuesday and I had arranged a hunt with Leon for We
