Found a nice piece today on the Fox River, it's littered with brachiopods, Bryozoan and a couple trilobites. Second rock I've broken open today containing trilobites! I think I've found the hotspot. #fossils #fossilhunter #trilobites #trilobite
I am Always fascinated with rocks and their super cool colors and shapes! Picked these little beauties at Jurupa discovery park today along with some fossilized leaves and ferns! 🌿🌱 felt like a kid in a candy store! 😁 #rockcollectorforlife #fossilcollector #moonrock #fossils #loverocks
My fossil finds during my holiday 😍, unable to identify some so any info is much appreciated (excluding sarcasm) #fossils #oceanfossils #shellfossil #lamarina #spain #oldseabed #rocks #beachfossils #stone #sand #sea #adventure #hiking #climbing #shells #history #oceanlife #oceanbed
Dolichorynchops in the flesh. So to speak. So stoked to be able to work on this 60 million year-old treasure. Paleo institutions all over the world would kill to have a gorgeous specimen like this in their collection; where one might see a jumble of stony-looking bits and jutting pieces, patterns and articulation make themselves visible to those who take the time to map out shapes and notches. But it's not all daisies either, because the rock that the bone is suspended in is very crumbly. Repairs happen alongside cleaning and mapping, and all in all its a very time consuming process. But how wonderful it is to have good work in front of you. Even if it's hard. 《Dolichorynchops bonneri vertebrae. Redbird, Wyoming. Upper Cretaceous, 60 MYA.

A few of my #trilobites from yesterday's trip. Top two are incomplete casts, top right one is disassembled but in place! Bottom left is a ventral view complete and beautifully preserved. Bottom right is multiple agnostid bois, mass die-off or caught having a party? #fossils #rockhounding #utahrocks #wheelershale #palaeontology
Today in the Bituminous Shales of Port Mulgrave UK I kicked back some seaweed and accidentally uncovered a miniature deathbed of Pyritised ammonites! 😍🤩 It was surprising and unexpected to say the least! #yorkshire #fossils #fossil #marine #reptile #ammonite #ammonites #dinosaur #marinereptile #mineral #paleontology #geode #minerals #crystal #treasure #amethyst #dorset #geology #charmouth #naturalhistory #jurassic #lymeregis #crystals #gold #coastal #stone #rock #instagram #rocks

Looks like possibly a trilobite won't know for sure until I scrape away the matrix. If it is I will be extremely excited! Doesnt look like it's whole but at this point spending 3 months straight looking for one and possibly finding a piece I'm fine with that. Found a lot of other fossils today as well pics to come. #fossilhunter #fossils #dinos
What to say, im particularly proud of this piece, it's a #rudist wich is a #bivalvia who have lived in the shallow seas of the #cretaceous period, approximately 65 million of years ago, they lived fixed in the bottom of the seas filtring the water of the tides, imagine, spectacular! . . #decorativestone #geology #minerals #mineralsforsale #mineral #magnetite #titanium #ore #natural #decorative #crystal #crystals #crystalshop #crystalsforsale #gems #gemstones #gemsforsale #gemstone #crystallove #crystallover #hematite #rockhound #mineralhound #rockcollection #fossils #fossilsforsale #fossil
Don't look behind you. 🙄 It's a giant Columbian mammoth. Who obviously just wants a hug. Tens of thousands of years old, unearthed from the ancient tar lake in the heart of LA. Among the 34 mammoths that have been uncovered at the Pits, one very special one was found nearly whole. 80% fully intact. Which is pretty remarkable. Scientists lovingly named him Zed. 💜 Dear Zed suffered a partial lobotomy when an excavator accidentally penetrated his noggin during digging, shearing off part of his skull. Which I guess is not the worst thing when you've met your death slowly sinking into a tar pit.
So this is the recently discovered ankylosaur I've been hearing about. Akainacephalus(?), I think that's how you spell it. And apparently this smol boi lived along Tyrannosaurus, guess it did cross herding with ankylosaurus for extra protection. If ankylosaurs even live in herds.

Fossils have always been an interest of mine. As a boy I always told people who asked that I would be a #paleontologist when I grew up. Needless to say that didn’t quite happen. However I do have a small collection of #fossils that I enjoy studying. Never did find out what this one is. Does anyone out there know what it could be?
"When the rain washes you clean, you'll know." 🌈 Repost from @crystal_lion_gems -------------------------------------------------------------- Ammonites are extinct members of the cephalopoda family of invertebrates, related to the modern nautilus, octopus, and squid. The ancient Egyptians believed they were divine creatures, and some historians today consider the Ammonite as one of the holiest stones, said to bring prophetic dreams and memories from past lives, and to facilitate contact with spirit guides. It has traditionally been used to honour ancestors and to connect with ancient sources of knowledge. It is a stone of transformation that can assist you in your quest for transition or personal growth, while helping you understand the process of change. Its spiral shape symbolizes continual change and evolution. Ammonite encourages a receptiveness to innovative forces in your life, and an aknowledgment of the infinite potentials available to you. It can help you gain a higher perspective of your present circumstances, allowing you to integrate that information to create yourself a better future. This fossil is associated with the Aquarius and Cancer astrological signs, and its energy resonates with the Base & Third Eye Chakras. -------------------------------------------------------------- #fossils #ammonite #geometry #sacredgeometry #divine #chakras #crystalhealing #baschakra #rootchakra #basechakra #thirdeyechakra #thirdeye #capricorn #virgo #earthelement #crystals #crystalmeanings #spiral #opalizedfossil #opalizedammonite #iridescent #gems #gemstones #nautilus #rainbow #evolution #transition #change #transformation

Wulfenite, PbMoO4  Wulfenite was first described in 1845 for an occurrence in Bad Bleiberg, Carinthia, Austria.[1] It was named for Franz Xavier von Wulfen (1728–1805), an Austrian mineralogist #nature #photography #science #minerals #crystals #gems   #stones #gemstones #geology #crystalography #instagood #wulfenite #austria #1845 #fossils #wow
These are fossilized shells from San Diego, California, embedded in siltstone. They are Eocene (48-50 million years old) in age, and come from the Delmar Formation. #fossil #fossils #fossilized #fossilshells #shellfossil #fossilshell #shell #eocene #shells #california #sandiego #delmarformation #paleontology #prehistory #prehistoric #bones #bone #extinction #geology #rocks #minerals #gems #paleo #ancient
Another trilobite from my collection. This trilobite is known as a Treveropyge its from the middle devonian period atound 380 million years ago. This one was found at the Hamar L'aghdad limestone deposits in the Djebel Issoumour area in the morrocan sahara. As you can see from its magnificent eyes it has an incredible field of view which suggests this might have been a target to predotors, its low profile body also suggests it might have been a fast swimmer. #fossiloftheday #fossilsofinstagram #fossilcollection #trilobite #fossils #fossiladdict #fossilcollector #collection #ancient #naturalhistory #collections #prehistoric #nature #amazing #epic #fossil #geology #rocks #paleontology #paleobiology #fossilhunter #rare #collection #nature #amazing #trilobites #fossilpoacher
Dinosaurs 🦕 peek another part of the cover! There’s skeletons of space dinos if you look carefully! Kickstarter is still work in progress! :—) been working all week wishing there were more hours in the day! But also making sure I get plenty of sleep every night! 💛💛
Tyrannosaurus rex was a big meanie, so this newly discovered dinosaur wore plenty of armor · · · · · · · · · · · · · · Living in the Cretaceous period would have been pretty darn dangerous for pretty much any animal. Dinosaurs were out in full force, and massive carnivores ruled the land with sharp claws and even sharper teeth. Herbivores had it rough, and the ones that managed to survive did so either thanks to their incredible size or a wealth of armor. A newly discovered species of ankylosaur called Akainacephalus johnsoni is a perfect example of the latter. Researchers first discovered the fossilized bones of this new dinosaur some time ago but have been carefully piecing it together for years, and now it’s finally ready for its time in the spotlight. The research was published in PeerJ (PDF). #dinosaurs #fossils #nature #history #paleontology #neat
This is another cool trilobite i own called a Zlichovaspis rugosa These trilobites were fast-moving low-level epifauna.it used to feed on dead organic material, especially plant matter. They lived in the Devonian period, from 414 to 391 million years ago. #fossiloftheday #fossilsofinstagram #fossilcollection #trilobite #fossils #fossiladdict #fossilcollector #collection #ancient #naturalhistory #collections #prehistoric #nature #amazing #epic #fossil #geology #rocks #paleontology #paleobiology #fossilhunter #rare #collection #nature #amazing #trilobites #fossilpoacher #zlichovaspis
Here's one that won't come around a lot on this feed...A picture perfect baby Meg. Posterior upper Megalodon. A rarity of extremes around these parts. It's not mine and I did not find this one, though I was there when it opened up...but I have been charged with its safe keeping...safe it will be... #fossilhunter #fossilized #sharkteeth #fossil #fossils #beachcomber #beachfinds #Megalodon #babymeg #serrations #sharktoothwars #sharktoothporn #makeusanoffer #prehistoric #extinct #perfect #natureporn #incredible #predator #picoftheday #instagood #holygrail #highquality #paleontology #history #fossilfan #southafrica #capetown #sharktooth #miocene

Beim letzten Ostseeurlaub habe ich diese wundervollen versteinerten Seeigel entdeckt. Ich wusste gar nicht, dass es solche Seeigel an der Ostsee gibt und sie vorallem doch relativ leicht zu finden sind, wenn man genau hinsieht. Das Sammeln hat mir soviel Spaß gemacht, dass ich im Urlaub kaum Fotos gemacht habe und lieber ohne Kamera am Strand war. Versteinerte Seeigel sind im Übrigen etwa 70 Millionen Jahre alt. Ich finde sie sehr hübsch und freue mich schon auf den nächsten Urlaub an der Ostsee 😊 #julianemyja #seeigel #versteinerterseeigel #fossils #urchin #seaurchin #ostsee #balticsea #fossilhunting #ostseesteine #beachfound #beachfinds #versteinerung

It’s Fossil Friday Before you is Dinosaur Bone. Sometimes the bone is agatized, meaning the bone cell structure has been replaced with agate, a type of quartz. This is an organic fossil gemstone over 70 million years old. Dinosaur bones are now illegal to collect in many parts of Canada and The United States so the material is getting very difficult to collect. For your rare piece of Dinosaur Bone come in and see our selection at both our Whistler and Banff stores. #RocksandGemsCanada #RockPaperSilver #RocksandGemsWhistler #fossilfriday
This now globally famous #artist made this #pencil and #watercolor #painting of the #harbor at #Teignmouth , #England , in 1910. Who is it? Will you harbor a guess? (Hint: I posted a painting of #fossils and #rocks by this artist on Tuesday. The answer will be revealed soon!) #Harbor #Guess #ArtMystery #WhoIsIt ?

Here’s a #FossilFriday time lapse of the installation of the new ankylosaurid #dinosaur mount in the Past Worlds exhibit at @NHMU. Learn more about Akainacephalus johnsoni by following the link in our bio.
#fossilfriday (Swipe left for a great photo of @tetrameryx ) Yesterday the Boesseneckers did an outreach event at the Dart Library in Charleston- our archaeocete whale Zygorhiza (aka Ziggy) was a hit! We always love setting people up to think it's a dinosaur and then inform them it's actually a whale! (More interesting in our opinion). #outreach #education #science #paleo #paleontology #paleontologist #lowcountryfossils #charleston #charlestonsc #whale #whaleontology #fossil #fossils #scienceeducation @cofcgeology @cofc @cofcgeologyclub
This is my leonaspis fossil that i have in my collection its quite a rare and unique trilobite with all of its spines around all of its body. This species where typically quite small as you can see with this one. This leonaspis trilobite was around 350 million years ago in the devonian period. This trilobite was found in the Hamar L'aghdad Limestone deposits of Djbel Issoumour in the morrocan sahara. #fossiloftheday #fossilsofinstagram #fossilcollection #fossils #fossiladdict #fossilcollector #collection #ancient #naturalhistory #collections #prehistoric #nature #amazing #epic #fossil #geology #rocks # trilobites #trilobite #paleontology #paleobiology #fossilhunter #rare #collection #nature #amazing #ammonites #fossilpoacher #leonaspis

Our Formal Dinning/Library 👌❤️👍 . . Song credit “Alone Again Or” originally by #Love , covered by @casadecalexico - one of our favorite bands. . . Since I was a little girl I would sneak into the kitchen at night and collect the chicken bones from our family’s evening dinner out of the trashcan, clean them and bury them the next day in the garden, at the base of our peach tree: thinking I would dig them up in a couple months to find them fossilized! 🦕🐥🦖 ... They were never there which only added to this age old mystery of #fossils and bones and #artifacts and #artINfacts . A lifelong journey and a lifestyle pursuit. . . When my husband Jeff was only 8 years old, for a school project he gathered mason jars and labeled them #copticjars then wrapped a girl head to toe in gauze to demonstrate the ancient #egyptian process of #mummification for the afterlife. . . We met in college, on an #archaeology #dig , pursued our life’s passions together serving the #indigenous #nativeamerican communities of #southerncalifornia , met amazing people and learned so much, built trusting relationships of integrity that helped shape our worldview, researched and published gratifying work along the way, and have been fortunate enough to afford to ethically curate #museum quality #ethnographic #artwork ... hope y’all are blessed by our visual presentation accompanied by a beautiful song. ❤️ . . Thank you Prof. Paul Langenwalter and Becky Langenwalter for being our #bestfriends , mentors, inpirations wedding sponsors, spiritual sponsors, and first #anthropology instructors : thank you both for sharing your #vision ❤️ My #kindredspirit @anoblesavage I hope you enjoy our collection of #oceania #ethnography #art and #contemporary #southwestern #pottery with a smattering of fossils, rocks and crystals we’ve collected on our journeys #rockhound ⚒❤️⚒ #livefolk #liveauthentic
