    Composita brachiopod with calcite brachidium

    From the album: Pennsylvanian fossils

    Phylum: Brachiopoda-Articulata Class: Rhynchonellata Order: Athyridida Family: Athyrididae Genus: Composita Species: Composita subtilita
  2. I'm really not sure what this is, if anything. Any ideas?

    Going through a family member's old stuff and found this along with a few other dinosaur bones. They grew up in San Juan county Utah, so this was likely uncovered from that region, but I can't say with absolute certainty. I don't know if this is a fossil or just a geode. I myself have almost no experience in this area. Any help appreciated. Thank you!

    Snake vertebrae on interesting matrix

    I have this really interesting piece in my collection. Got it for what seems like a steal. Its a tiny coil of snake vertebrae but the matrix seems to be some sort of crystal. Has anyone seen anything like this? No similar images come up when searching for snake vertebrae.
  6. This is a tusk I prepped a few years ago, sourced from central Alaska. It was in great shape for being a partial, no breaks to repair or even major cracks to fill, all natural besides a little stabilization and polishing to bring out the colors. Really strong vivianite on this one and inside the internal cavity appears to be crystals. It was tricky to get a good photo of them, but see below. I took a few of the inside shots with a UV flashlight as well as just a flash. Vivianite crystals?

    Stone found with crystal swirl

    Any information on this rock I’ve found at my local beach.. the swirl is full of crystals

    Crystalized fossil or a pipe dream?

    I have a rock feature that I am a bit doubtful, but hopeful about. I have a few "crystalized" fossils and have seen some very nice ones from near my hunting area also posted. This does mean that there are some out there. This little feature measures almost 11mm long and is 6mm wide. In hand, the left side really looks like a head segment of some sort with the line and what does look like two eye spots. The main area has what looks like segment end features going around the sides. The square crystal feature in the center is a totally new one for me. I have found literally hundreds, if no
  10. Not my find but noticed this one on Reddit. What do you think. Seems to be too much coincidence. My best guess a real skull covered in some deposits either marine or cave in origin.
  11. Found along the shore of the North Channel at Little Current, Ontario. Large, bumpy nodule which seems to be completely formed of (calcite?) crystals all the way through (I'm surprised by the multiple colours, but maybe that's normal?). I'm assuming it's a sponge, though wondering if someone could give a more specific ID or perhaps explain the crystallization seen here.
  12. Hello. I offer for trade fragments of petrified wood of the Carboniferous period with crystals of smoky quartz. Some samples are in the photographs (I did not upload all the samples I have, since there are quite a few of them - of different sizes and qualities, as well as the sizes of the crystals themselves. I think we can agree on what specifically interests you - I have no doubt that I will find the sample you need). The origin of this wood is Ukraine, its age is Carbon. I'm interested in marine reptiles and petrified wood. Thank you. Have a nice day

    Wood or Bone in Costa Rica

    I found this fossil on our property in Puriscal, Costa Rica. I found it on the ground after moving some dirt from the berm next to a ditch. This ditch was dug by hand for us several years ago. The previous owner backhoed this area to flatten it. but couldn't go any farther due to the enormous rock. I am posting here because I want opinions if this is petrified wood, or bone. It measures about 10cm long, diameter about 8cm. There is a crystal formation on one end.

    Woodbine mystery

    Went out to Grapevine lake to check out the water level after all the rains, I rarely bring back anything, there's only oysters and gastropods by the dam and I couldn't get that close. This rock caught my eye, looked like it might have something in it. It wasn't until I got home and looked at it with loop that I saw the crystals, really hesitate to use that word because I've never seen any kind of crystalization in this part of woodbine. As far as I know no kind of fish fossils are here but that's my only thought, something fishy like fins. Most of them have an opalescent shine that's hard to

    Star Crinoid Stem

    I found this in the parking lot of gravel at a power plant I worked at in Taylor, Az. Thinking it was a dried up carrot, lol. I kicked it and realized it was a bit hard to be a carrot, I picked it up and noticed a crystal through the center. I've searched and still can not find one so vivid in color and absolutely none so far with a crystal through the center. Can anyone tell more about this and how rare it is with the crystal in it.

    Crystallized sponge?

    Found this on a walk. Very porous with channels filled with tiny crystal
  17. Hi everyone, this is Matt again. Does anyone know what these things in this rock I found are called ? Here are some photos:
  18. This is not a joke, I'm not trying to get attention, I want people to know the truth so that they can form their OWN conclusions based on scientific fact. What I'm presenting has not been tampered with as to fool you. I have kept it minimal. If you are really interested then you must see it in person. I'm near Reserve, NM. FACT: A HEART CAN BE CRYSTALLIZED. FIRST IMAGES - Illustration of heart filled (taken from youtube video "heart anatomy"), then heart emptying, then heart empty). Notice the shape of the heart when emptied. I bet a lot of you didn't know t

    What are these? Anything good here ?

    Any of these any good? What am I digging? It has a shell? And little egg lookin things on it. Some of the dinosaur look in things have turned to Crystal too

    Rock, mineral type need help

    I keep running across this rock or mineral not sure what it is. Number one has a miniature cavity/geode.

    Again, Since some were interested in the crystals within this rock I cleaned it up for a better view.
