    I’m stumped …

    Great to know this group exists. I’ve collected fossils all over the Mid Atlantic for fun over the last few decades and now live on the coast in far northeastern Maine. Not many fossils here because of glacial scour, but there are some pockets of marine fossils here and there. So I was surprised when my wife brought this home after a walk to our town’s beach she brought home a rock in the photos. Looking closely, I could believe that a matching footprint was worn away just to the left. That is, if this is indeed a footprint. Thanks for your thoughts.

    Went to the beach today

    So I’ve just come back from the Barack and clean up what I found (removed all sand and gunk) and I had come across some shells, unusual crystals (probably quartz) and a fossil leaf and stem imprint (for size the red shell is around the size of the average hand) If anyone has any info on any of these would be a big help

    Fossil shell imprints?

    Hey all! Found these in a pile of different rocks near my home in western NY. Pretty sure that they are not from here naturally but it is possible. Anyways I’m pretty sure that one of them is a shell imprint looks like spriffer or something similar but not sure about the other two. Also is the lump on the back of the darker rock anything? Thanks for the help!
  4. mr fossil


    I found this rock in a area not logged in any geological map except one French map from 1963 which logged it as Cretaceous with a question mark. It is surrounded by Precambrian mountains and sedimentary rocks just randomly pop out so I thought I should investigate. Near Makkah Saudi Arabia. I found volcanic, Precambrian and sedimentary rocks there which confused me . Anyways I was wondering if this is a fossil and if it is the. What type
  5. Hello, I'm from The Netherlands. (Excuse me if my English isn't perfect) A few years ago I found this grey stone amidst the garden gravel near my house. It was bigger and duller in comparison to the rest of the gravel. When I inspected the stone I discovered that it wasn't so dull after all because on one side it had a small imprint of a star that appeared to be made out of tiny bumps and ridges that extend and surround the star itself in the shape of a circle. I've always been curious to know what it is!

    What is this?

    I found this at a man made lake, so there was alot of deep digging in order for them to make the lake. Lake Miramar is in San Diego but a little north east of the metropolitan area.

    Looks like a footprint...probably not, just want to double check though.

    What is this? Fossilized Acorn?

    Hello Everyone! I have found some of these while Rockhounding in Rio Rancho, NM as well as near Nageezi, NM areas. I THINK they are possibly Acorn tops, or possibly even an Oak seed? But, I am not for certain! It is driving me NUTS not knowing what they are. My boyfriend thinks they may possibly be reminisce of shell casings, as he found some nearby... I am almost certain they are not she'll casings. But, When I have found them, they aren't all over, rather specific areas. I have found them as small as a BB all the way up to the size of a small dinner plate in diameter. And whenever I've

    Leaf Imprint?

    Went for a walk today through Dinosaur Park in Alberta. Came across this and took a picture of it. Is this a leaf imprint? If so does anyone know the name of the tree or plant?

    Seahorse imprint

    I found this on the beach is it a seahorse? And is it rare
  14. Hello everyone, I came across this fossil on one of the auction sites - unfortunately the seller knows nothing about its age or even the country of origin. He sent me the following pictures, which however are not very sharp :(( Nevertheless, does it look like anything Ediacaran to you? The size is 17,5 x 12,5 x 2 cm. The guy says it's shale rock. What do you think? I will appreciate your comments :) Kasia
  15. What could it be???
  16. Hi all! Yesterday I visited Formosa Reef here in Ontario (Amherstburg Formation, Lower Devonian), and I found these weird circular imprints on a few rocks - does anyone know what they are? @Kane Thanks a bunch! Monica photo with ruler for scale: close up photos:

    An imprint of dinosaur underwear?

    Hullo everyone. This was picked up on a beach in East Ruston, Norfolk, UK. The parent rock is flint, I think, as is most of the rock on that beach. The rock carries a textured feature in a hollow. I didn't have anything other than that 18mm (~3/4 inch) 5p coin for scale. The feature appears to be mineral. It can be chipped out with a blade and the fragments are gritty. It's probably humdrum but I'd like to understand what I've found so thanks to everyone for looking.

    Help ID - shell imprints, NY

    Hi! I found some rocks with shell imprints in a creek in Tompkins county, NY, USA. I understand that the fossils found there are usually from Devonian period. My guess is that it is a brachiopod. If yes, is there a way to out more precisely what kind, and to narrow its age? I have a very sketchy knowledge about the subject so any help is appreciated. Thanks! 1.

    Small imprint

    Hi all Found this small stone amongst the gravel on the driveway with an imprint from (I'm guessing) a sort of little sea creature. Any ideas?

    Fossil imprint of???

    So when I found the encrusted bivalve, I found this in the same roadcut in what I believe is Bethany falls limestone in Kansas City. It has define spikes/spines/other with softer margins and I simply don't know. there are no other complete fossils near it but there is this imprint-whatever that is ?? Any help or thoughts, as always, appreciated! Thanks! Bone

    Tusk shell imprint

    Again from my "museum". This one was found in Warren county outside St. Louis and as close as I could tell at the time, it appeared to be an imprint of a "tusk shell". Guess it could also be curved nautaloid? Haven't changed that opinion, but haven't advanced my knowledge as much as I should have either! Thanks for any thoughts!! Bone

    Fossil? imprint /mold type not sure

    It has it all around it an on the ends this one was mostly covered. It might be 2” long an half inch tall on ends an almost a inch tall at tallest point for size. Some shell it looks. I found it in my aunts flowerbeds she had bought rock in 1969 to cover 7 beds. So when I weeded them I'd dig out interesting ones. She's had the same rocks since then. She'd have the rocks cleaned an put back . Kodak, TN. I thought it was the most interesting one. Thought to share. Thank you.

    What is this

    Hi, my sister found this on the beach of Hunstanton, Norfolk last year whilst on holiday We are unsure on what it is, but we think it may be an imprint of some kind of anemone or coral, not sure though The whole rock is concave and about 4.5cm across I will attach a close up of the pattern in the replies
  24. Heyo! Found on the river banks of Humber river in Toronto, Canada I came across this rock this weekend and I was not sure if it was anything special or just a peculiar shaped rock. After some hesitation I decided to pick it up just in case. It has a very distinct wave looking shape to it and the texture on the 'wavy' surface seems rather fossil-esque but I wasn't sure as the cross section doesn't seem to show much of anything. If I had to take a guess I would say its either a coral or maybe its an imprint of some-kind? Let me know what you think If its anyth
  25. I found this years ago as well. I cant remember exactly where. I think maybe by the lesser slave lake area. There is some kind of imprint on the rock. Does anyone know what it is from?
