    About the crumbling. Spraying shellac or the like in the leave and stick fossils after you clean them will stabilize the fossil a bit as well as shine it up

    Another great video thanks. I have a suggestion to transoprt fragile fossells ,just bring a 5 gallon bucket with sand, adding layers of sand between then should make transport safe for your collection.JM

    some of the plants are from gigantic fern trees from the carboniferous period

    Awesome fossil collecting. What your standing on is a 300 million year old swamp from the Carboniferous (Pennsylvanian) period. The fossils that you found is that of Calmanites bark and fossil ferns like Neuropteris. The white color is due to the mineral called Pyrophyllite. Well preserved too. Nice finds.

    There are so many places like this in this area. I know of several just in the woods. Coal mining was everywhere. I called these spots shale slides for lack of another word. I can sit for hours in nice weather with a couple of flat tip screwdrivers, one very small and pry pieces of shale apart.

    Saw this video and we decided to head straight out there.
    Sure enough there are fossils everywhere!
    Returned a second time a little more prepared (a few tools and a padded back pack to carry the fossils) and found fossils in some rocks almost immediately upon exiting the car.
    They were closer to the odd fellows cemetery.

    My dad was born and raised in Minersville, PA and my mom in Pottsville, PA which is in the same Anthracite coal region (we traveled through Centralia many times when it was a vital town). There are these types of banks in many areas. I remember as a kid finding excellent fern fossils in black shale right on the surface.

    👍🏼❤️ very cool

    Very cool. I want to go there one day and fossil hunt. I purchased some fossils from St. Clair, Pennsylvania, but in my opinion it is so much cooler to find it for yourself.

    I wonder who didn’t like one of your videos and can’t imagine why
