Graptolite help Please


Recommended Posts

Hello

Found some I believe to be Graptolites and would like to be able to ID them better in the field. Is there a guide available or even a good book anyone might recommend for this. Attached pictures are what I think are graptolites but would like to verify. Surface finds

 

Thank you all for the help

Tom

Why do you think graptolite? I'm not sure I see fossils in any of these. What is the geological setting?

I think I'd have to agree with Connorp's response

Hello 

Complete newbie here, I was inquiring about the markings on these items and if they were or were not Graptolites. Geological setting would be shallow marine.

 

Thank you

Tom

I don't think any of them are graptolites.  I'm not sure some of those rocks are even sedimentary.

I'm not seeing Graptolites or any fossils. The rocks seem to be a mix of worn Igneous, Metamorphic and with a couple sedimentary. A good place to start fossil hunting is in bedrocks. I have seen AZ fossils collected by residents and they are nice and they are out there. Join up with a club, group or a friend, who will go out with you.

Have you Googled 'graptolites'? If not, do so and check out the images. There is a regularity to graptolites that is unmistakeable.
