    Make Your Own "Fossil"

    From the album: 2018 National Fossil Day, Delaware Style

    We used Crayola Model Magic to make plant imprints. The medium really holds details well, dries quickly and doesn't make a huge mess (-:

    Fossil or Faux-ssil?

    This game really had people thinking! Can you tell which are which?

    Fluorescent Fossil Display

    From the album: 2018 National Fossil Day, Delaware Style

    About 60% of fossil shells fluoresce. This was a quick set-up using a cardboard box and an ultraviolet LDE flashlight. Flashlights like this are long wave, so they don't work with nearly as many species as shortwave, but for some species it doesn't really matter which wavelength one uses. The $15 flash light was much more expendable than my shortwave light!

    The pool is loaded with sand and local fossils that visitors could take home - oysters, shark teeth, and belemnites! Oh, my!

    8/6/17 Calvert Cliffs

    I took the first trip to Calvert cliffs since I was a very small child yesterday (I know I live in Maryland so I should be there more often) and although it was productive I am frustrated. A) not a single shark tooth to speak of, I think I was doing something wrong and B ) YOU CANT ACTUALLY HUNT AT THE CLIFFS!?! I knew you were not allowed to dig in the cliffs, but I thought you could at least hunt under them! The person at the front didn't mention that, just said don't dig in the cliffs, and the only warning was a small sign behind a bank that could barely be seen and four small wooden posts
  8. If anyone would like to visit Wrens Nest near Birmingham ( in the UK) on a mutually convenient date sometime in the next two months I'm happy organise it. Wrens Nest is Silurian and an incredibly productive site, you WILL go home with LOTS of finds. The hash plates here are spectacular. You may find a trilobite or two too, at least two species can be found there to my knowledge. Common finds are crinoid bits, branchiopods, social corals, bryozoa many in great condition. These look spectacular on hash plates. Pieces of sea bed are easily found with beautiful texture and often have f

    UK group trip

    Any UK members interested in a group trip details here Moderators, I know this is a duplicate post but I think it would gain more exposure here. Please delete if you feel necessary.
  10. Wanted to share a map of potential spots to hunt for fossils in the US. Not complete by any means but it's a start! Just planning our fossil hunting road trip this summer and though others might be doing the same Happy hunting!

    wenlock edge advice

    hi guys i'm planning to go again in wenlock edge next thursday for some hours of hunting, not like the last time that i went for just 2h. Anyone can suggest the most productive path to follow? any advice wil be appreciated. thanks
  12. This by far has been the most ambitious trip that I've done, but it was certainly worth the long drive times, poor truck stops (to sleep at), and lack of time to sleep and even eat. In just 10 days I traveled through 7 states (WY, ID, MT, CO, UT, AZ, NM) and covered at least 4700 miles (I might actually have broken 5000). Not only did I alot some time for general fossiling/rockhounding, but also time to stop at a few of the more "touristy" types of places (national parks/monuments, etc). The first day I visited a couple sites in southeastern Montana, with the first being kn
  13. Hello, yesterday I went for a little fossils hunting in wenlock edge , unfortunally just for 2 hours , anyway I came back home with some finds , nothing incredible but its always something . Here my finds

    Penn Dixie and Brechin

    If anyone is interested I will be taking / meeting some people from the Fossil Forum to go to Penn Dixie (Hamburg NY) on Friday June 2 and Brechen (about 1/12 hours north east of Toronto) on Saturday June 2. Please PM me if you are interested in joining us. Expect to work hard but come away with some nice goodies. Both localities are good for trilobites, Brechin also adds crinoids and cystoids to the mix as well as brachs and all those other things that I don't collect.
  15. Hi all, I have about 3 months off, and would really just like to journey the US in search of fossils. I live in California, and would be open to some traveling in the states. Is there any trips I can go on with a team or something in search of fossils? Thanks in advance
  16. Any tips for fossiling near Chippokes State Park? I'm hoping to bring my 10yr old triplets over to Jamestown next weekend. Any tips on finding fossils in the area? It's been about 20 years since I was last there, but I recall finding parts of dolphin/whale bones, sharks teeth, and lots of shells (state fossil Chesapecten jeffersonius, etc.). Tide table looks good for a morning search.... Recent googling seems a bit contradictory about what can be found and kept. Any advice?

    April 28 Peace River?

    Hi all, I am going to be in central Florida this week on a business trip and I have a bit of free time Friday afternoon. I am planning to go to the Peace and was wondering if anyone would like to meet up. It has been a couple years since I collected in FL and I cannot wait to get back out there!

    Trip advice

    Hi I will be on Mallorca island for 3 days next week , anyone know some good hunting spot? I'm planning to hunt a little while enjoying the sea.
  20. Just another cold and blustery day here in Central New York! I had to get the kids out of the house, and I wanted to get a fossil fix at the same time. I knew thw going fossil hunting with temps in the teens, was not going to happen. So I decided on the next best thing. Trip to the museum! Located in the Fingerlakes region of N.Y. I what I consider a hidden gem. The Paleontological Research Institute- Museum of the Earth, is a rather small but really nice museum. I found out about it many years ago when I first became a member of the Syracuse Gem &Mineral club. There is virtually no adver
  21. I thought I would write a short trip report with some of my finds since I enjoy reading the reports other people make alot. This quarry exposes a layer of rock just under the KT boundary of around 65 m.y.a. in an area with an estimated depth of around 200m based on the fauna found here, in this particular location we call the chalk bryozoan chalk because the majority of it consists of bryazoans. When i went on the trip it was snowing but there is always an abundance of fossils witch makes up for it ;P Anyway without further delay here comes some pictures

    Tomorrow! 04/09/17

    My mom and I are in town for one more day in Jacksonville NC and would love to find some way to look at Camp Lejune for shark teeth! If no luck with that, does anyone want to meet up or go looking for fossils/teeth for the day..?!
  23. today was my second hunting trip again in offerton (river goyt) , was better than before , here some finds. dont know if the bones are fossilized or not.
  24. Hi guys! Yesterday I had a great time at the cliffs. I left my house at 10:39 pm friday night, and got to the town of Chesapeake Beach around 5:00 am. For almost the entire ride I had to deal with thick patches of fog. I was quite relieved when I got to town. I had some time to kill, so I grabbed some Mcdonalds and made some posts on the forum. I also messaged back and forth with Maxfossils , who gave me some encouraging words. It was a great way to start the day. I pulled in to the parking lot at 6:45and it was barely light out. There was one car already there. As I walked the trail to the be
  25. Hi folks, I am heading to Schoharie NY tomorrow to find some fossils. As of right now, I am going to the road cut since I do not know the area. Any tips? I will update on what I find when i get back. thanks, Dom
