I found a large carboniferous sandstone boulder in a hard to access reclaimed coal mine area. The boulder is buried so that only the top is exposed. Part of the top bedding planes are gone, revealing very nice lycopod rootlets lined up like airliners at a busy terminal. I suspect the main root is in there too, waiting for careful prep work at home. The only way to collect it is to split off as large of a slab as I can handle, and pack it out on my back. Fortunately the specific spot is level and stable and I can lash anything to a pack frame securely. I'm posting to ask for advice on
Hi. I know these are poor pictures so I understand if nothing comes from them. This 3' by 3' boulder looks like a big dirt clog up close but is solid. It is in central Washington County, northeastern Oklahoma, Pennsylvanian I think, on the Caney River. 99% of the ground you see it sitting on going down the river and around the bend is coral, but I see no coral in this boulder or the only other boulder (out of view). In this post, the lower middle spot in all three pics is what I am curious about. It's about a foot wide.
This boulder is on the property we recently purchased. We're in NE Oklahoma. I've been curious about the origin of the rows of pits/holes in it but just now have time to really pursue an answer. I realize that there a good chance that it's not a fossil but I just don't know where to go for an answer. I would greatly appreciate any input or suggestions. The scale is indicated to some degree by my four-year-old's hand in the frame. Each hole/pit is about 1-1.5 cm wide. The rows are separated by about 6-10 cm. The entire stone is maybe a meter or so wide. I haven't seen any ot
I know it doesn't typically look like a dinosaur fossil, but what if some were preserved once upon a time ago, like the people of Pompeii? Just a thought. Could a giant asteroid create the same kind of ashy wave of preservation as Vesuvius? Or, Is this just a granite boulder? I also wonder if earlier man might have been sculpting or carving some of these boulders, because I see a lot of odd ones around here that I want to run out and paint so people can see what I see. I have overlayed a few with what I think they might be, and if nothing else, at least I get to color, haha... I will post t
