    Amber?!?

    So, I was going through my rock collection, just going through memories, because the guy who gave me all the rocks died in 2018. I found these at the bottom of the box. I remember he did not give these to me. In fact, I found these somewhere in Idaho, but I can’t remember exactly where. They look like amber, so I shone my UV light on them. Sure enough, they passed that test. I am posting pictures under regular light and UV light. I am pretty sure it’s amber, but I want a second opinion. What do you think? Jared

    Oceanic Fossil Identification

    I discovered this fossil very near the summit of a 8,500 foot (2,600 meter) peak in southern Idaho. It was within a dark band of strata and there were various coral/shell fossils found in the same strata (see last photo). Amazing to me that the seafloor is now hoisted to the top of a mountain peak! I can't tell what this particular fossil is, though I immediately thought bone given the structure when I picked it up. My 8 year old is confident it is a T-Rex, but given it is near oceanic fossils, I'm doubtful. The fossil is broken and seems to be sliced in half vertically, exposing the inne
  4. This cylindrical object came from my neighbor whose mother was an avid artifact and rock collector. She had no idea what it was or when her mother found it but it was a long time ago up in the area of Carey, Idaho, on her mother's private property. The object is cylindrical with a small sway toward the middle of it. It is 4' tall and approximately 2 3/8" at the widest point. It is stone or clay colored uniformly aside from the ends where it has a brownish gold tinge and shows circles in the center of each end. It is very heavy given its size and seems dense it weighs 1 lb 6.1 oz. Any he

    Fruit pod or something?

    OK, so once again, I found something today. I would like an ID on it. It’s about the size of my thumbnail, looks like a piece of a prehistoric fruit or something. I honestly don’t know what it is. It looks like it was once attached to a prehistoric plant, you can see in one of the pictures. I’m not sure what it is. Any help can be appreciated on this. Found in Boise, Idaho. It is cloudy right now so the light conditions are not best.

    Belated 2019 Road Trip Fossils

    Last year, to celebrate finishing my undergraduate degree, my girlfriend and I went on a long (9,000+ mile) road trip around the western US and at long last (a little over a year since their discovery) the last of the fossils we found are out of the refrigerator and I’ve finally gotten all of them photographed. Here are some of the highlights and best fossils we found. A rough map of the route of the trip While the trip wasn’t entirely fossil centric we wanted to hunt at a few cool spots along the way. We chose to visit 5 fossil locations, the first of which was

    Reef fossil ID

    Hello, Ive been wracking my brains over this and I can't find anything close on Google but it really looks familiar. This is from what I think is early Triassic Thaynes group near Minnetonka Cave in St. Charles Creek/Canyon (from a paper I couldn't download so I lost it) (west shore of Bear Lake) but there is Ordovician St. Charles Fm immediately to the west. The geologic maps I can find don't even show the Triassic but I collected the ammonite locality south of Liberty so I know it's at least in the area. Anyway I collected this little bugger at the site and I'm stumped (honestly the only fo

    Fossil of Scat?

    I found this rock in an outflow stream of the Coeur d'Alene River in Idaho. I believe it is fossilized scat. On the first size are bone shards of something the animal ate who deposited the (believed) scat. On the opposite side, I believe there are faint small animal foot prints. There are claw impressions, slightly oval in form, with deep claw like impressions. I could be wrong. Can anyone help me?

    Helicoprion Shark Fossil?

    Good afternoon, I would like to start off with saying that I know very little about fossils and Geology so please excuse me if I make any errors or misstatements. Recently I purchased approximately 10 cubic yards of rock from a local business to use for landscaping around my property. The business has claimed that the rocks they sold me were excavated from in or near the banks of the Snake River in Southern Idaho. I unfortunately do not have a more exact location but I would be willing to possibly follow up with the business if more information is needed. With the help of some friends we
  11. So, me and my family bought a house. We are moving into it in June or July. While exploring the backyard and measuring for a garden, I scored a big fossil find. 5 LARGE pieces of petrified wood. Larger than I have ever found so far. They were partially buried in a spot where I was going to put some flowers. Legally, I can't take them until the deal closes, which we are certain will happen before we move in. As soon as the deal closes and I can get my hands on them, then I will post pictures. Apologies for keeping everyone waiting for the photos.

    Rock or Ammonite?

    Found this while I was fishing. Can't tell if it's an ammonite or a rock. It does have that spiral pattern very slightly. Plus, when I turn it on its side, it looks like there's some indication of a small chamber. What's your input? Ammonite or rock?

    Moving today

    So, as the title says, I am moving to a new house today. I'm moving all my fossils, and loading up the truck with my stuff. I'm attaching a picture of my best fossil, just because I like showing it. I'm the person in the picture. The fossil is a Phareodus testis and probably a diplomystus on the bottom. Anyway, here's hoping I get all my fossils moved there safely!
  14. I haven't been on for a while. Reason is I'm getting ready for a move. I wanted to tell you all that while I was looking at a house, I found a 4.6 lb piece of petrified wood. The land owner said I could take it, to my surprise. The fossil is already pack with my other fossils. I'll upload a picture when I have a chance. May take a while.

    Slew of fossils found, help!

    Alright, these are from an area I frequent. I get all sorts of different kinds depending on how high or low I search. I’ve taken some to a professor around me and he said the red material is hematite. I’ll add them in the comments

    Petrified Wood?

    Me and my brother were walking near a waterfall, when we both found this. I thought it was just a rock, but it has a very strange visible structure that makes me suspect it is a fossil, maybe its petrified wood encased in sandstone, but I am not sure. I am attaching 3 pictures of it. In the second picture, you see why I think it is petrified wood. In the other two, you see the structure of the rock I was talking about. What do you guys think? Jared
  17. My first find in a while. Been crazy because I am preparing to move to a new house. Here is how I found it. I was looking at a house with my mother. We were talking to the land owner about the house, when I saw a rock. Immediately my mind said, "petrified wood." I went over and looked at it. I was right. Petrified wood. I spoke to the land owner and said that he had petrified wood on his property. Without me asking to take it, he said that I could have it! SCORE!!!! Well, thats one way to find petrified wood! Jared

    Claw?

    Found this near Murphy, Idaho while looking at rocks. To me, it looks too curved to be a regular rock. There also seems to be a structure inside it. Is it a fossil claw, or something else, or not a fossil at all?

    Found an Ammonite

    So, an interesting story. I went to North Idaho for a funeral. I went to a thrift store after the funeral. I found this Ammonite there. No joke. It even had a Certificate of Authenticity next to it. 25 dollars? I couldnt pass up this opportunity. I was able to get it! Its a nice specimen!
  20. Trying to figure out what these might be. They would have been under water, the location still has a lake overtop of it, but the water levels were low when we found it. Soil has a lot of clay and there are tons of petrified or fossilized bones that litter the beach. Seemed larger than cow rib...any ideas?

    Petrified Wood?

    Hello, So, I was looking in my collection, and I found this. Its the first fossil I ever found. Found it in my backyard in Nampa, Idaho. I was looking at it today, and I was beginning to wonder if it really was petrified wood. I mean, it didnt look that much like it. It looks more like a crystal. While I was getting a picture under my magnifier, I discovered that it had lines like wood grains going in one direction. I never noticed them. The thing is you can only see these lines under a magnifier at maximum magnification. They are that faint. I have two ques

    Fossil Bones?

    Hello, So, awhile ago, I posted about going through a rock and finding a shell fossil, which turned out to be a Gastropod. In that same rock, I found these fossils that look like pieces of a spinal chord, and two other pieces that look like parts of a skull. These things are VERY small, I had to use a big Magnifier to get the picture. They are about 1/2 a centimeter long, except for the other two parts, which are 2 centimeters and 1 centimeter long. The rock was found in Nampa, Idaho. A friend of mine told me that the rock was likely brought in from Bruneau, Idaho, as I
  23. A family of amateur fossil hunters from Utah -- the Gunthers -- found this fascinating fossil in the Spence Gulch shale part of Utah in 1992, and shared it with Richard Robison at the University of Kansas. The mystery of what it was went unsolved for nearly 30 years, until a team at Ohio State uncovered the telltale circle that showed the creature had attached to a shelly surface via a basal disc. It's the earliest/one of the earliest known specimens of a mat-sticker making the evolutionary move to attaching to a harder surface--a leap that makes some of our modern-day echinoderms, including s

    Oviatt Creek Idaho

    Hi all, I am curious if anyone here has any experience at the Oviatt Creek Fossil Beds outside of Moscow, Idaho. I did not find any information on the Fossil Forum and an internet search turned up a only a few papers and more questions than answers. The composition of this area may be similar to the more famous Clarkia fossil beds. It seems that the Oviatt Creek beds used to belong to the United States Forest Service, but may have been turned over to the Potlach Timber company. Has this impacted recreational, non-vertebrate hounding? A call to the local Forest Service Ranger Statio
