If you have a shell or a shell fossil at home and you just can't place an identification label to it, or is your snail doing something and you're not to sure just what, here's where you might get some help. I am but an amateur collector myself, but there are many good conchologists and malacologists that may be willing to help you.Send your photos and collection data, if you have any, to me, Avril Bourquin . I will set up a file page for your shell or fossil shell then people can contact you personally in regards to their idea as to your shells proper identification. Please try to keep your jpg files small.This kind of service is also available from some other GREAT shell collectors and dealers on their web sites. You may wish to seek out their assistance as well. Contact information forsome of these sites and people is located at the very bottom of this page.Good luck in getting that definitive identification on your treasured shell or shell fossil.
Yes, that is it! Thanks. Now... is it unusual for such a band of ophialite to be exposed? Am I especially blessed to have such a variety on one rock beach? So here are three more I picked up yesterday evening (my husband is beginning to think I am nuts!). The one on the left appears to have volcanic rock embedded in a sort of quartz. Next is just another breccia in paradise. On the right is an amazing rock with pink speckles and exposed quartz crystals.[attachment=4516]So now I am going to bring out my fossils. :-)
