  • Dino tooth??

    found while gold panning today in a creek along with a few crinoids. It looks like a tooth or claw? Southwest Michigan

    Nope, not a Dino tooth. Pretty sure that's a piece of Horn coral. Here's a link.

        Yah dassit....

        One of many species of Rugosa type corals.

        Whoa wait a minute panning for gold in Michigan?
        Ever find any? If so it would have to be float in from glacial drop.

        It is a "Rock" when it's on the ground.
        It is a "Specimen" when picked up and taken home.

            Just a very short history lesson. There are several gold mines in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The Rope's mine was the most productive but even the Rope's mine didn't produce much. There is recreational panning throughout Michigan and you might find this link interesting.

                I have the same thing. My hopes and dreams for a claw, tooth, or horn are shattered now too lol.
