    And I may have a fossil or two. But! I have a good excuse, I have a degree in geology. Anyone else like rocks?

    I have a small collection of rocks. An awesome BYCer sent me some petrified wood and it is my favorite in my collection. I also have an ammonite necklace that I love and wear often

    Sounds great. My fossil collection isn't big, I have some crinoids I collected and a piece of stigmaria I found while working in east Kentucky.
    I also have some bone pieces I bought off o ebay to do thin sections of.

    I have one I need identified.. it's a good sized chunk.. aqua green and translucent (almost like glass or obsidian).. with white roundish inclusions? in it...

    It was given to me several years ago.. and it used to have a sticker on it stating where it was found.. as I recall it said it was from a cave in Kentucky...

    Any ideas?

    I have 50 or so Megalodon (shark) teeth to 6.49 inches, lots of Green River Forrmation Fish, ammonites, trilobites, several dinosaur teeth, dino tracks, and a dino egg, local fossil crabs, mammoth and mastodon teeth, a walrus task, and numerous others. I will try to post a picture at some point...

    this is my meteorite collection so far. I do have a 50lb Campo but the glass shelf won't hold it. I will try and get a picture of it soon.

    here are a few of my fossils. I have a very small collection. I am not an expert on fossils and am still learning, so I only buy what I know to be real. It limits me but I'm learning.
