Wood, Bone or Weird Rock?
tekknoir posted a topic in Fossil IDI tossed this one in my petrified wood pile because that's mostly what I find out here, but sometimes I see pictures of bone fragments that look similar or that I would have taken for wood had I found it. So what do you guys think? It doesn't stick to the tongue and shows details that could be porousness... but could also not be... There's no obvious cell structure that I can make out. Follow up question: Are there any good ways to tell the difference between wood and bone aside from wood cell structure or visible marrow? This was found in Dona Ana county, NM.
Another mystery rock
tekknoir posted a topic in Fossil IDOk, fossil forum, I've got another thing I'm not sure what to make of. A partial black stone about 3/4 inch long, with some interesting texturing on one of the flat sides and some porous dimpling on the rounded side. Found in Doña Ana county, New Mexico. Any ideas what it could be?
