A luck beach fossil find.

Found this just off shore when I was 14 (1995). Have always assumed (hoped) it was a fossil, maybe of a seed but just thought it was really neat. Assume the "lines" are from ocean creatures, and aside from some "chips" the symmetry is perfect.

Fossil bone discovered at Folly Beach

I found this while walking on the beach late at night on 11-04-11. I would like to know what it is. The texture apperas very similar to another fossil pictured on this web site found on a beach in Florida.

Fossil shark tooth from South Carolina

Although it is not complete, I was very excited to find this auricularus tooth. The tooth is over two inches long and would have been an especially nice find if not chipped. This is an extinct cousin of the more well-known Carcharodon megalodon shark and the first auricularus I had ever found. The tooth is from the Harleyville Formation and was discovered at a cement quarry in Harleyville, SC. The location is not often open to the public, but I was fortunate enough that day to be given a guided tour for a article I was writing about the quarry.
