    Shell or bone in coral?

    Can anyone ID this? Found on the beach near Charleston, SC.
  2. This was found on the beach in Romania (Black Sea). It is about 6cm. I have no idea what it is. At first look it seems like a fossilized coral. But as I did some research, this doesn't really look like other fossilized corals I've seen. Another option could be borings made by creatures, but a lot of them are openings rather than holes (apart from a big deep hole which is visible in pictures, is that a boring?). Another option I found is something volcanic, but why does it have so many holes? Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you!

    Possible coral fossil?

    I found this rock looking for geodes, I think it’s a fossil but I’m not quite sure. My best guess is coral IMG_1254.MOV IMG_1254.MOV

    Western Wi Fossil?

    Hello, We found this in western Wisconsin in a dry run. We're thinking possibly some kind of coral? Complete N00b here The whole piece is about 5.5" long, the striated part that we believe is fossil piece is approx 1 inch long. Thank you so much for your help!
  5. Hey fossil people... more specifically hey Arizona fossil people. I'm wondering if any of you have run across fossilized horn coral in this state? If you have, tell me about it. I'd love to see examples of what you've found. I"ve found lots of brachiopods and other marine life in Arizona but this is the first time I've found horn coral. The idea that Arizona used to be underwater is fascinating to me. Theyre not the prettiest specimens... but i found them and they're mine! Lol. For those wondering, I found these near Payson Arizona. Same place I've found byrozoans, brachiopods, and
  6. My collection is enriched with new pieces from the dear, old Europe. This is a Gryphaea dilatata, the so-called "devil's toenail", from Villers-sur-Mer in Normandy, France:

    Crinoids, packstone, brachyzoans?

    Found these while having a stroll on the beach on the southwestern tip of lake Michigan, in Illinois just south of the Wisconsin border. I am about as novice as you can get, and found this site while trying to figure out what these are... I'm pretty confident that the rings are crinoid stems, unsure about everything else. Hope the pictures are good enough, hard to photograph small things with a phone camera. Mostly curious about the spike shape on this one The smaller one here is the backside of the one above I don't know if these two are fossils, they look
  9. I saw this chunk on a sales table at the recent Rendezvous of BC rockhound clubs here on the Island. Had to have it, though I keep telling myself to avoid fossils with no provenance. Anyone recognize it or have any hunches as to ID and especially location of origin? I guess somewhere on the eastern half of the continent... It appears to be a mix of cherty and crystallized composition. Whoever owned it before didn't treat it very kindly (lapidary types)... Apparently there once was a label of some sort glued to the top, and the rough saw cut which I hope to flatten better and polish s
  10. I've been working on a Petoskey Stone presentation for my rock and mineral club and have been collecting various colonial rugose corals that have been on sale on online and Etsy. I've been doing this because "Petoskey Stone" has become a popular name to use to sell fossilized coral and I want to be able to show our club how to differentiate Hexagonaria from other types of coral. I've gone through this forum and gleaned some data from @TqB and @FossilDAWG while they were helping out on IDs and was wondering if anyone could help me fill out this cheat sheet with more information (and correc

    Coral from Belgium

    Hi, I found this coral fossil in the middle Devonian of Belgium around Tellin. It kinda looks like a Hexagonaria but I'm not sure. It's around 6 centimeters wide.
  12. Found in yard after heavy rain storm. The last photo is prior to cleaning off thick clay -like coating. I may have overdone it. Thanks for looking:)

    Devonian Coral

    Our mineral and fossil club gained access to a new quarry. I stumbled onto this coral and am perplexed in trying to ID it. There were the typical hexagonaria and rugosa corals. But this one stood apart. Thanks for thoughts!! The quarry contains all levels of the Cedar Valley Formation. Mike

    Myrtle Beach Cretaceous Finds

    Hi all, I was recently at Myrtle Beach and collected some fossils from around 4th Ave. N. where a drain pipe is being installed. I found my best Hardouinia mortonis and several nice Exogyra costata so I know the Peedee formation is present there, I am unsure of other formations, as I found these in a dredge spoil pile on the beach, however I did find some things that are a bit puzzling: The first item is a vertebra of some kind. What throws me off is that the cells are not filled in with limestone like the usual Peedee bones I find, I am wondering if this may be newer, maybe Pleistocene? Any

    Heliolites Coral ?

    Howdy, I was wondering if anybody could tell me what they think about these rare coral fossils that I find on the Oregon Coast. They are agatized and take a nice polish. Thank You

    Agatized Fossil Coral?

    Hey! I came across this agatized fossil coral on the Central Oregon Coast not that long ago, but have absolutely no idea how to further identify it. I did see one other thread here with a guy that had something like it but they didn't have any definitive answers yet either. Any ideas? This type of thing isn't common to find here which is why I'm curious to know more. Thanks!
  17. These are three finds, made on my local Suffolk coastline (UK), that I'd please like identified... The first of these ('1') has flat, shiny surfaces - but I suspect it to be 'just' a nice-looking rock; the second ('2') I'm not too sure what it is; and the third ('3') is definitely either coral or, less likely, bone - for it's incredibly light for its size, and it feels almost hollow... 1.
  18. Any of these fossils?

    Unknown fossil

    Fossil forum, I recently found an interesting fossil. I was thinking coral or bryozoan, but was unable to identify it correctly. It is from the Leighton Fm Maine (again), which is Silurian. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Here are some pictures of it:
