Fossil Specimens for Sale

PAGE 2

I am selling most of my collection of fossils. They're been taking up space in my rock room for a couple decades now, and I need the room for...well...more fossils! 95% of these were collected and prepared by me. I collected most of them from Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Wyoming. I'm including what I know about them, but like any amateur collection some of them are mysteries. It can be difficult to determine exactly what species a fossil is without a degree in paleontology so my IDS are NOT perfect. All are labeled with the number on the page in an inconspicuous place, it can easily be rubbed off with alcohol. So if you want to know exactly what they are and where they were found (if my fading memory kicks into gear) then write it down or take a screen shot. These are prepared for display as they were found. Most have a very thin coating ofa fossil preserrvation plastic to protect them from getting smudged. If you don't like it then it can be easily removed with a little acetone and patience. If there's any reconstruction I'll point it out, but 99% of them are as they were in nature. Quite a few were exposed with various tools but none are "embellished" to make them look prettier. I do sand down the matrix on some of them, those are easy to spot :)
None of the photos are enhanced or changed in any way - indeed, the photos don't do many of them proper justice.
All fossils will be sent Parcel Post mail or flat rate priority mail ($8.90 - $14.90, depending on weight), whichever is less unless you specify the shipping method. Most of them are small enough to ship USPS first class mail which is a couple bucks.

If you've recently visited this page, be aware that your browser may have cached the images and although all browsers are supposed to catch new images and reload them, sometimes they don't. So hit the refresh button below just in case to make sure you have the lastest pics.

There's a simple fix for Firefox:

Type " about:config" in the website address box. This should load the Firefox config settings in the window for editing. You may see a warning message stating, "This might void your warranty!", click on it to load the settings. Then find the "browser.cache.check_doc_frequency" key and change it to "1".

For those of you who are looking for something specific in my for sale pages, such as when I list refurbished equipment, I have a solution for you. You may want to try this: https://www.changedetection.com, I think all you do is sign up and enter the address of the page, for example if you are looking for equipment enter http://orerockon.com/equipment_for_sale.html, and they should send you an email when I add something. BUT, it probably will send you a notice when I change one letter of one sentence on the page, so you might get annoyed by it at some point. It's a great way to track when I list new polished items, since I typically don't change anything until something sells and/or I add items, and equipment, which I never change unless I add new pieces or change the status to "sold" as they sell.

SOLD means just what it says. Please do not click on the Cart button if it says SOLD
Click on the pic or the number for a larger view. Measurement is the widest distance across the fossil.
I wil bill shipping charges later through Paypal. Smaller fossils will be sent via Parcel Post Mail, or flat rate priority mail if you buy some larger ones ($8.90 - $14.90 depending on volume).
All are labeled with the number on the page in an inconspicuous place, it can easily be rubbed off. Write down the description or take a screen shot, it will disappear if I list a new fossil.
Information: "Fm." = geologic formation, Epoch (time period), "MYA" = million years ago. Get a geologic time chart here. Memorize it, there will be a quiz at the end :D

Fossil 21

Porter, WA 3" wide Pulalius vulgaris, these are the most common crab in western WA state and parts of NW Oregon. This poor guy lost just about everything except for his shell and claws. Lincoln Creek Fm., Late Eocene - early Miocene Period, abt. 30 MYA.

$14.00

NEW
Fossil 22 Porter, WA 2-1/4" wide Pulalius vulgaris, these are the most common crab in western WA state and parts of NW Oregon. At least this one held onto most of his parts!

$12.00

NEW
Fossil 23 Mitchell, OR & MT Largest is 2-1/4", smallest is 1-1/4". 2 ammonites on the ends are from the Cretaceous Hudspeth Fm. around Mitchell, OR. Possibly Desmoceras. 100 MYA. Small one is probably Hoploscaphites, from the Bearpaw Shale Fm., northeast Montana. Late Cretaceous Period, 80 MYA.

$10.00

NEW
Fossil 24 Central OR Coast Trio of snails. 3 speices, 3 locations on the central OR coast. My guesses are Cryptonica, Calicantharus, and "not enough to go by". I'm not that good at identifying snails. Astoria Fm., Miocece Period, about 14-23 MYA.

$12.00

NEW
Fossil 25 Mitchell, OR Largest is 2-3/4". 3 ammonites from the Cretaceous Period, Hudspeth Fm. around Mitchell. Possibly Desmoceras. 100 MYA.

Fossil 26 Twin Rivers, WA 3-1/2" across. Thalianassa mud shrimp. What you're looking at is a male shrimp, they have a claw that is sometimes larger than their body! The rest is pieces of the shell and legs. I have exactly one of these that is completely intact, they are so delicate it's extremely rare to find one. One of my best Thalianassa, but I already have better from this location. Twin Rivers Fm., late Eocene to early Miocene, abt. 34 MYA.

$15.00

NEW
Fossil 27 Knappton, WA 2-1/2" across. Thalianassa mud shrimp. What you're looking at is a male shrimp, they have a claw that is sometimes larger than their body! The rest is pieces of the shell and legs. I have exactly one of these that is completely intact, they are so delicate it's extremely rare to find one. This location is now a nature preserve, luckily I collected a backpack full of these long before that. Lincoln Creek Fm., Late Eocene - early Miocene Period, abt. 30 MYA.

$15.00

NEW
Fossil 28 Vernonia, OR Shell is 1-1/2" long. Macroacaena schencki crab, most of the time the shell (carapace) is all there is. They have 2 big spines sticking out of their side, sadly this guy lost his. Keasey Fm., late Eocene–early Oligocene Period, abt. 40 MYA.

Fossil 29 Newport, OR Left is 2-1/2" wide. Trio of clams. Left to right Panopea abrupta, Katherinella angustifrons, Anadara devincta, Astoria Fm., Miocene Period, about 14-23 MYA.

$8.00

NEW
Fossil 30 Asfla, Morocco 3 1/2" Choffaticeras segne ammonite (say that 3 times fast!). There is no shell left, only the mold, like the vast majority of these. You see these cut in half and polished at just about any rock shop on the planet, but you may never see a whole specimen. It is extremely thin, almost like a flying saucer! Late Cretaceous Period, 94.3 to 89.3 MYA.

$10.00

NEW
Fossil 31 Kemmerer, WY 3-1/4" long, Knightia eoceana fish from the famous Fossil Butte shale beds. I am addicted to digging these so I have to sell many of them to make up for the gas and digging fees! This one is missing its tail. Other than that it's in splendid condition. Green River formation, Fossil Butte member. 53.5 to 48.5 MYA.

$10.00

NEW
Fossil 32 Asfla, Morocco 2-34" Goniatites, a relative of ammonites. You see these cut in half and polished at just about any rock shop on the planet, but you may never see a whole specimen. Devonian Period, 360-420 MYA.

$12.00

NEW
Fossil 33 Coos Bay, OR 5" Teredo clam bored petrified wood. Most of the wood has rotted away leaving the tightly packed in molds of their burrows. Teredo are boring clams that still eat pilings and wood ship hulls to this day. It came out in 2 pieces so there is a repaired break. Empire Fm., Miocene Period, about 7 MYA.

$10.00

NEW
Fossil 34 Newport, OR 2" long Crepidula praerupta, a really weird colonial snail. First a female settles on the sea floor, and gradually a bunch of males pile up on top of it. Then the whole bunch crawl sideways along the mud feeding. When the female dies, the next male in line turns female. This is a whole colony from the same location. I made the bottom flat so it stands up. Astoria Fm., Miocene Period, about 14-23 MYA

$8.00

NEW
Fossil 35 Newport, OR 2" wide Katherinella angustifrons clam, Astoria Fm., Miocene Period, about 14-23 MYA.

$6.00

NEW
Fossil 36 Newport, OR 2" wide, possibly a Calicantharus snail. Did I mention that I'm not good at dentifying snalis? Astoria Fm., Miocene Period, about 14-23 MYA.

$7.00

NEW
Fossil 37 Morocco 4-1/4" Mammites ammonite. You see these cut in half and polished at just about any rock shop on the planet, but you may never see a whole specimen. Late Cretaceous Period, 94.3 to 89.3 MYA.

$12.00

NEW
Fossil 38 Longview, WA 3" and 2-1/4" long oyster, possibly Acutostrea idriaensis. This one is both halves (valves) they fit together perfectly. I've only found a couple that are complete. There is an entire fossilized reef of these at the site, it's ridiculously easy to just chisel a bunch off at once. The site is now closed to collecting. I've never seen this anywhere else I collect. Colwlitz Fm., Eocene Period, about 41-33 MYA.

$12.00

SOLD
Fossil 39 Morocco 2-34" Goniatites, a relative of ammonites. You see these cut in half and polished at just about any rock shop on the planet, but you may never see a whole specimen. Devonian Period, 360-420 MYA.

I will ignore orders from invalid email addresses (yes this happens, believe it or not)! You DO NOT NEED A PAYPAL ACCOUNT to use PayPal! If you choose to pay via eCheck, I will wait for it to clear before starting on your order. (Yes, I have been ripped off this way. Apparently it's a common scam used on PayPal.)

Do not ever email anyone your credit card number! If someone asks you for it, they are attempting to steal it! If you email me your credit card number, it will likely be stolen since one of tens of thousands of bots will probably intercept any email that looks like it has a credit card number in it. I wouldn't know what to do with it anyway, that's what PayPal is for.
