    Amber with cracks

    Question for the Amber experts : Recently I was looking at some of my Amber (Burmite) with inclusions with my magnifying glass Quite a few of them have internal cracks. Is this likely to become a problem some time in the future ? Are the cracks likely to develop further ? And possibly ruin the piece ? Any way of preventing that ? Soaking in some sort of consolidant or oil ?

    Petrified Wood with Inclusions?

    I found this piece a while back and picked it up due to its strange shape even though I couldn't identify it. I've mostly focused on learning how to ID Pleistocene fauna since that's mostly what I find. But now I'm trying to learn more about other things I may be overlooking. In several views, this looks like petrified wood to me. But the back view makes it look like it could just be weirdly shaped chert. One way or another, I haven't found anything quite like it. Hoping someone can help. @JohnJ Pic 1: Front Pic 2: Front view from the bottom Pic 3: Front vie
  3. ZacMan77


    This was given to my parents by a friend about 38 years ago. He was a gemologist and my parents had purchased quite a few items in his store throughout the years. It was a going away gift when they were leaving the Vail Valley, Colorado. It's been sitting in storage until last year. Since I've had it, I've gotten a lot of scrutiny and assumptions of it being a fake or whatever. I know it's real and significant. Any thoughts from members would be so appreciated. I'm stuck and don't know where to go from here. Specs: 2.2 inches in length and weighs 19.87 grams.

    Concretion or coprolite?

    Picked this up in creek that is mostly Eagle Ford but is downstream from where it cuts through QAL. Pretty sure it's a concretion but given it has a few inclusions want to make sure it's not coprolite, and yes I read the post on the subject but still left me unsure so best to leave it up to the experts!
  5. I have 1kg of rough Burmese amber stones ready to polish but I'm a little stumped as to where to start. I've polished Dominican pieces before using a dremel and wet sandpaper with success, but this stuff is older and much harder. In addition to the thin rough skin on these pieces, a lot have rock (or some combination of amber/earth) running through them making it difficult to figure out the plan of attack in regard to finding inclusions and getting a nice shine. Anyone here have experience with this?

    ID rock inclusions

    Found this rock (upstate NY, Tompkins county). Main rock seems to be shale, but what are the black inclusions in it? The rock on the last picture is different. Is that print from an organism, or just a rock structure? Thanks!

    Rock identity?

    Moderately heavy rock ( not volcanic) with very rough surface, with interesting inclusions. Found in Osage River valley (an arm of Lake of the Ozarks) in Benton County, MISSOURI ( west central MO). If anyone has an idea what this is, I’ll send more pictures.

    Inclusions in paving slabs

    I have just gotten back from a two week holiday in Majorca, Spain. We stayed in a self catering apartment. The area around the swimming pool was paved with what looks like sandstone slabs to me. There were shell fragments in all of them. Most were very indistinct, but there was a little detail in in some. No idea where these slabs would have been sourced from. Are these actually fossils??
  10. I found this 3 cm long x 2 cm wide x 1-1/2 cm thick curved rock just last week on a southeast Florida beach near the town of Jupiter. Our beaches have a lot of fossil shells, bones and teeth. This nugget was different from my usuals finds- larger and softer looking than a shell fossil. It has a smooth fine grained texture and the end looks “pulled”, not broken. Thoughts?

    Cretaceous mushroom in amber????

    I need help in identifying this. Is it a mushroom in Cretaceous burmese amber? Cenomanian burmite from machine state?

    Amber inclusions info?

    Are things that had been entirely covered by amber(as opposed to only partially, where it would still be exposed at some point), still soft, with moisture, or does amber somehow draw the moisture out of whatever has been sealed inside, drying it/turning it into a husk?

    Texas Mystery

    I'm a new member, so thanks for accepting me. My family and I have hunted for fossils, arrow heads, and sharks teeth for many years. It has been a way to pass the time on hunting leases and on the beach. It has always been a hobby, we have never worried about identification of any particular piece...until recently. Being retired, I started going through our collection, just for the heck of it. I found this piece that we have always been curious about. It was found in a creek bed on a ranch near Sonora, Texas, in northern Schleicher County. It was found 6-7 years ago, we leased the property fo

    Tree Or Bone? Dark Red Inclusions

    this is given to me via an inheritance so I don't know where it came from it looks like it has dark red blood cells almost in it can't decide if it's bone or tree. any ideas? thank you in advance for your time.
  15. Hey Finally I have managed to find ways to take a zoomed up pics of my baltic amber to get a better view of the inclusions inside (trying to angle an iPhone camera on a loupe to get a good pic wasn't an easy task...), though I really have no idea of what they are. Anyway here are the pics of the amber inclusions: Specimen A: Specimen B: Specimen C: Specimen D - This one is a tubular amber with a few different kind of inclusions inside: Specimen E - Another specimen with multiple inclusions: Last time the pics I posted in my old thread weren't any good to help
