New Member Looking for Help
Bob Root posted a topic in Fossil IDHi folks! I m new here. Thanks for letting me in. I have no Idea on this, the inside is throwing me. Petrified maybe? I don't know much and I would like some help. Found in East Texas. There are many more like it, but didn't want to bring home a 1000 pounds of rocks if that's what it is.
Received secondhand photos from a friend - Maryland beach concretions, or something more?
Mara_Masina posted a topic in Fossil IDHello guys, hope you've all been well! A friend recently reached out to me with these photos and asked if they were anything, so I apologize for the lack of formal photos/measurements. They were beachcombing on Assateague Island in MD, which isn't very fossiliferous on the surface from my understanding; even so, I told them I'd reach out to see if any of the three objects below are anything unusual. Thanks!
Is this petrified wood?
JimmyC posted a topic in Fossil IDThe curves within it have me confused. If so, is there a name for the type of petrified wood it is? The size is approx. 10" x 12" x 6".
Driveway Rock Bone
TLL posted a topic in Fossil IDCrystallized bone found in northeast central Texas driveway. Anyone know what it was? I find the lobar look, striations, and the small circular structures ringing the edge of the ?bone interesting. I included the picture of the proximal and distal picture to show they can be seen going all the way thru the fossil. Please educate me about this baby. Thanks.

Amonite or concretion
Kevin Shales posted a topic in Fossil IDHi, is this an amonite or part of a concretion sphere? I’m not sure where it was found. Many thanks
Name that shell!
Flaminka posted a topic in Fossil IDI found quite a few of these at Alligator Point, Florida during low tide the day after Thanksgiving. I'm pretty sure one is a Florida Quahog, but no clue on the other. Ice chest ruler for measurement. Any idea on them age wise? There was a large grouping of them in a tight area so I'm inclined to believe that they are eroding out of the substrate there. Thank you for your assistance!

Looks like a bone endcap? Maybe just a concretion.

I wouldn't expect to find a bone from anything in there, but this really looks like something to me. It's about 4cm long, and it feels like a pretty standard rock. The reddish-brown areas are smoother and slightly concave, and it looks to me like this was broken off of something. There's also an area on the back side where the same reddish-

Mammoth or Bovine?
kid kettle posted a topic in Fossil IDHey folks, I love the internet. I had no idea there were people out there I could just ASK what my friend found! I thought I'd always have to wonder. I'm not in the same place as the fossil anymore, so I'm sorry that all I have for scale is my hand and a phone in the background of the photos. (I didn't know that was bad for scale until it wasn't in my possession anymore -- the fossil, not my hand.) I know my friend found this "neat rock" (fossil) on an active gold mine in Canada's Yukon, and that there were reports of Mammoth fossils found along the same line of claims... but never having
