  1. I am learning the differences between rocks, phosphate and fossils. All are abundant on the beach here. This piece has thrown me. There are areas that look bone like. Other areas not so much. The two holes and sheen on parts of the item made me not automatically dismiss it. However it is very worn. Any special ways you use to distinguish between rocks and fossils in a situation like this. I’m learning and both success and mistakes teach me something. Thanks!
  2. Found these three things on the beach over the past couple of days From what I’ve read, the larger tooth looks like a bison tooth. Were they in this area? The shark’s tooth has a grey silver coloration. It looks like there were serrations but they are worn down. The third item may be a rock. I am curious because of the black inclusions. I would love any feedback about these items as I am fairly new at this and I always learn from this site.

    Whale bone? Fresh or fossil?

    Hi all: I found this yesterday at high tide and am not sure if it is a fossil or fresh bone? I found a larger one a few years ago that weighed less. Thoughts? Thanks! Oh, and I can flake off the white parts. The black is more like rock. Thanks again!IMG_0358.HEIC IMG_0358.HEIC IMG_0355.HEIC IMG_0354.HEIC IMG_0356.HEIC

    This was found on a South Carolina beach. The structure looked similar to horse teeth found in the area. However it is larger than what is usually found and very worn. Could be a rock?

    Is this amber?

    Not sire if this is amber, waxy texture, golden edges glisten in the light found on the beach 20230210_201726.mp4

    what is it

    not sure if it is a tooth or not, any help would be appreciated. Looks like enamel on outside
  7. I found this yesterday beachcombing At Otter crest, just after high tide " King Tides" This Beach is between depoe Bay and Newport Oregon.. I also found 8 agatised gastropods and 2 agatised mollusk's.. but my question is what this belonged to?.. I'm sorry I only had a centimeter or inch to measure with... So I chose the centimeter.. the closest thing I can find online seems to be a Vertebra.. it is completely mineralized and in the light glitters like Crystal. I rock hound quite a bit, but this is out of my privy... Lol can anybody give me more information?

    Unknown Bone found on Holden Beach

    I could use some help in identifying this bone found in Holden Beach,NC. It's extremely brittle and light weight. I appreciate your help.

    Fossil chunk with skin?

    Found a weird fossil "chunk" (4 by 2 cm, about 1 cm thick) that appears to have skin imbedded in it (part looks like leather with fine creases and lines). Curious as to ideas what it might be ? (I also default to turtle, but have no real clue). Thanks!

    what animal did it come from

    my wife found this while strolling the beach. Not sure what bone it is and from what animal. Any thoughts will be appreciated.

    Another first unknown find.

    Help with id once again. Found another oddity (for me anyway). Appears to show some symmetry although somewhat worn. Thanks in advance.

    Need some idea of what this is

    I found this on Edisto Beach, South Carolina near the point where the Edisto River flows into ST. Helena Sound. I am not even certain it is a fossil, but doing a GOOGLE Lens search, found similar images on this site. It is hard with a rough surface. There is a piece of a shell stuck in what seems like a midline on one side of it. Any clue would be appreciated.

    Shell fossil

    Hi, we found this rock on a local beach where a cliff is being eroded. It had a small fossil pattern exposed on one edge. We’ve broken it open and found a shell of some sort. I would love help to identify it. New Zealand, South Island, West Coast thank you i don’t know how to reply to anyone! Sorry. I’ve put more detailed photos up but not sure if they’re helpful Also apologies that the rules say your hand shouldn’t be in the pics

    Big risk of looking silly. I found this on the beach this morning, tooth or shell? Hope the photos are OK, first time poster! Thank you in advance, Kate

    What do I have?

    I believe it’s a tooth. Enamel on two sides. Ends do not look like horse. Any thoughts?
  16. Hello I found this fossil on the beach shore of Lake Huron just north of Port Sanilac, Michigan while visiting. Can someone help identify what it is and maybe how old it is? The fossil image itself is about 3 & 1/2 inches long by 1 & 1/2 inches wide, it appears to have legs on the sides and fins in the back. Thank you!

    Beach find

    Not sure what it is. Doesn’t seem to be a rock.
  18. Hi, I have been combing the beaches of Topsail Island for years and this is the first trip that turned up multiple large finds. Usually my biggest find is the size of a nickel. This year I found over ten that I consider noteworthy…which is strange in itself. But I am having a lot of trouble identifying one in particular. I have attached a few pictures of the tooth in question here. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Usually my finds are very common…tiger, sand tiger, great white, bull, etc. but for some reason, this year turned up many ancient and worn pieces. Any opinions on why

    Tiny (1cm) fossil ID help

    Found this very small possible fossil on a beach near Charleston, SC. The island where it was found is a former dredge spoils site with contents from the bottom of Charleston Harbor. Would love some help to ID this curious little thing. Thank you!

    Similar or not?

    Both of these were found on the beach in South Carolina. They may have nothing in common but have similar characteristics to my eye. The first is approximately 2cm while the second is closer to 3cm. Both are symmetrical though the second is not complete. I look forward to hearing just how far off I am!

    Bone Beach Find

    This bone was found on the beach this morning. It was at the shoreline. I’ve included photos but this is my first post so please let me know if other information is needed. The piece measures 7-10cm. Clearly it is very worn so I don’t know if identification is possible. Any ideas are welcome and appreciated

    Shark tooth or other?

    Hello, Sometimes I collect shells from the beach and the other day I found the one in these pictures. My friend thinks it may be a shark tooth but it looks unlike other shark teeth I've seen. If you have any idea what it may be please let me know! Thank you.
  23. Hi. I am over the moon with this find. I usually find only find 10-20 teeth on the beach each summer. I have only found 3 teeth all summer on the beach. Mainly because I am spending more time with the kids than searching. But tonight was low tide…. Three steps into looking….. so excited it’s 1 inch and perfect!!!!!
  24. Hello everyone - I have a (hopefully) interesting find from the Lake Michigan shoreline around the Leelanau peninsula in Northern Michigan, which I think is likely Devonian in age. It might be difficult to see from the pictures, but there are some small crystals within some of the gaps. Coral? Crinoid? Mollusk/brachiopod internal mold? Geologic? None of the above?
