Rock Hunting for Fossils!

My grandfather used to work for San Diego’s Geo Society. 

A while back I was going through a cabinet in the garage and found this tin. When I opened it I found these fossils. 

Some of them I know the name of but maybe some of you may be able to help tell me what the others are. Anyway, enjoy. It sure was a great thing to find. 

#1

    • He died the year I was born. The first time they took me to his house he carried me around for days. I really wish I could’ve gotten to know him. We are so much alike.

#2 Crinoids

They were animals that look like plants that lived around 500 million years ago in the Cambrian times. 

#3 A different angel

and closer. This is the fossil shown above. 

#4 Imprints of Crinoids

and some square shaped things...

#5 Unknown

It might be part of a shell. 

#6 A bone

#7 Another bone perhaps.

#8 Teeth and Jaw Bone

About the size of my palm.  The front smaller tooth is about the size of a medium sized dog, and the one in back of it the size of a large dog. 

#9 Unknown.

What do you think?

  1. Gosh, you have your own fossils. All I can say is WOW. Great find and from your grandfather no less. I tried to write comments on each and every one of the pictures but Virily froze up every time so I gave up. Beautiful pictures of days and remains gone by forever…
