    Carboniferous Bark, Roots, Stems?

    I was rooting around in Ambridge, Pennsylvania, Beaver County yesterday and found some interesting plant fossils. They are Pennsylvanian and out of the Glenshaw Formation. Not sure if they're identifiable or if I would need a microscope to ID. Any help is appreciated.

    Help to identify.

    Found this at my local river near Manchester in the UK close to a recent landslide, it looks like a tree bark or something to me and is a foot long. Any help to identify and date would be appreciated.

    petrified fern trunk?

    Hi I found this petrified log of some sort in a sandstone cliff near Inverness Cape Breton Island and am wondering if anyone here knows what it would have been interesting looking pattern around the outside its how I would imagine the bark of a giant fern/ palm tree trunk would have looked long ago , also does anyone know how I could clean it up and bring out more of the bark like texture without damaging the fossil?
  4. So I found a collapsed shale and sandstone pile off the side of the road and it seems to have some neat stuff. This seems to be falling from a layer about 100 feet up on the road cut so unfortunately its mostly shattered and cracked through the layers instead of along the flats of them. A lot of it seems to be similar to the "Kentucky coal fields" finds you see online with the grey shale and black specimens, but some of it seems very different. Below are some attached pictures with nothing done to the specimens other than a decent brushing. What appear to be Neoropteris leaves, branches, f
  5. Hello everyone! I had a fun a really fun trip last weekend with some friends, including @Jeffrey P. We hit a fern ferns spots I've found over the years, and got access to another spot I never explored.. overall, it was a good trip with good friends. Here are my favorite finds...
  6. Hi everyone! I'm new to fossil hunting and I found a few interesting rocks underneath Sea Cliff Bridge near Wollongong in Australia. There was a lot of coal in the area for context. I will attach some photos of the rocks I found, I'm particularly interested in the small white (quartz??) lines intersecting the black part of the stone. Any help would be hugely appreciated! Thanks

    Any idea?

    We have dug up this when repiling our house. Not sure what it is?
  8. Hi All we have had on the forum some quite out there post in the last few days so I thought I would add a post that is a little more grounded . I know very little about Scale Trees and some may think they are a little dull but to me they are quite striking. The Carboniferous was the heyday for early land plants. Giant lycopods, ferns, and horsetails formed the backbone of the land’s ecosystems. One of the most abundant plants during these times was the lycopsids known as the scale trees. Scale trees collectively make up the extinct genus Lepidodendron order Lepidodend
  9. Today after work, I went to a new-to-me site in Iowa City. I had seen an old online pamphlet walking tour of the geology of the University campus. They listed a site they described as Pennsylvanian sandstone/siltstone in which they said there may be impressions of wood fossils. Here’s a piece I found: It’s very fragile, so I’ve only done some very light cleaning with a soft brush. Here’s a closer image: Here’s an even closer image where you can really see the grain. Am I right in seeing wood here?

    Mystery object on petrified wood

    While y'all are on the subject, wanted to get some opinions on this. I collect a lot of petrified wood, wouldn't even have picked this up if weren't for the odd thing on it. Could it be bark? It's strange how rounded off it is, and there are tiny white dots in it's trail on the slice it's on. Appears to have a pattern on it, maybe someone will recognize it as a specific type of tree.
  11. Hello TFF, I purchased this relatively inexpensive specimen at Mineralfest this past fall, and I was wondering if anyone could tell me more about it. The seller informed me it could possibly be from Madagascar, but was transparent in admitting that she couldn't confirm for sure. It was with other pieces of petrified wood that were brown, but I was drawn to this one due to the red hues. I think it's agatized, and it looks "glassy," although there are too many impurities to shine a cell phone light through it. One side is polished, and I put water on the rougher backside to show mor

    Wood and Bark from Colombia

    Hi all, I found a number of wood fossils in a recent trip to Villa de Leyva, Colombia. I'm not sure of the period as there are a wide variety of geological bands in the area. I have the feeling the lined fossils are Calamites but would appreciate some help confirming and potentially identifying the others. Thanks in advance

    Bark or Mulch?

    Vince San Antonio, Tx I walked over this piece for weeks. I thought it was a piece of bark or mulch. I picked it up and washed it off like a rock. After I dried it off I noticed the burn looked odd.
  14. Hi everyone. I recently visited a quarry at the north of Spain (more specifically a geographical area called "El Bierzo", famous for its fossils from the carboniferous era) and I found the following ones. I think I have identified most of them but I would like to know your opinion. Thank you very much!

    I need help with a scale like fossil!

    Hello! I recently went to Grand Ledge, Michigan. This area is part of the Carboniferous, and more specifically the Pennsylvanian period. I found this fossil that appears to be scales. It’s not an imprint either, the scales are elevated. In the surrounding rock there are cordiate fossils and some kind of clam, I found ferns in the area as well. I believe that it was a swamp land way back when these were all alive. An ID on what kind of plant or maybe even fish scales would be awesome! Thank you!

    Sigillaria bark parts

    I found these while walking around Bochum/Herne in Germany, whichr is in the Ruhrgebiet and mainly carboniferous. The left one I'm pretty sure it's sigillaria, but not so sure on the right one. Greetings!

    Potentially Petrified Wood

    Hello all! I am a new member, and this is my first post. Could I please have some help figuring out if these rocks are petrified wood? Most of them were found in a small Pennsylvanian stream. It looks like they are quartz, crystal quartz, but I am no expert. There should be about two pictures of each rock. Thanks for your help, and I have more pictures of different rocks if needed.

    Ferns + More Part Two

    This morning I went back to my new friends office to pick up a few more things I didn’t get last time. Very productive trip and I can’t thank Bill enough for sharing his finds with me.

    North central indiana

    While digging a new pond this fell out of the bucket. It is 15 in long, 8 in wide, 3 in thick. Very heavy. Will try to get good pics. Thanks Hope
  21. My son found several, hopefully, fossils in Sugar Creek in Turkey Run park in Indiana. He would like to know if they actually are fossils and of what. We are pretty sure the first one is a tooth. But have no clue about the other ones. Tree bark? Some sort of plant? Thank you for any help.
  22. Again I'm not sure what kind of bark this is? Found on old mine pit in Gelsenkirchen. Thanks!

    Is this fossilized tree bark? Help please

    Need help identifying what I'm guessing is Fossilized tree bark I found On banks of Yellowstone River. Erosion this year is nuts. More just this spring than I've seen in 33 years of Spring flood erosion.

    Tree Bark from Eocene ID

    I needed help identifying this tree bark. Its about 38 million years old from the Renton Formation in Western Washington State. I can see insect burrow marks but they could also be the details in the tree itself. Its about 12 inches long and 5 ish inches wide

    ID Wood, Iron, bones in MD?

    New to the sport. Found these yesterday at Calvert Cliffs and along the Potomac River. Big debate was weather the largest piece was bark that had been replaced by iron of if it was just a clump of iron from the bog. Several larger pieces observed on site in the cliffs and on the beach- some said they were wood; other just "bog iron". Please critique or help with id. Thank you.
