  1. Fossil bone or interestingly shaped jasper?

    Hello everyone, I found this in Washington State, Pleistocene, near Mason County. Suggestive piece of jasper or fossil bone? And I apologize for not using metric. I couldn't find my other measurer... Your thoughts would be appreciated. Chris
  2. Is this Stromatolite

    I am not sure what it is. Maybe Stromatolite? Dense piece. The coloration looks like it with the red.
  3. A few more samples from another area near Fallon, NV I believe is Petrified Wood or other? Thank you.
  4. Fossil ID

    Yesterday, I visited the famous Moenkopi Dinosaur Tracks site. The lady to guided me pointed out shiny rocks, which she said were jasper fossil corals. She let me collect them while I was being guided. I'm sure the pieces are jasper, but I'm not sure of they're pieces of coral. Are they? In addition, there were some other things she pointed out, such as dinosaur eggs, skulls, coprolites, and vertebrae. I already knew these were suggestively shaped pieces of sandstone. I'm sure this misinformation wasn't on purpose, though.
  5. geology question

    I was in an agate field in South Dakota just south of Badlands Park. Cretaceous era. I collected a few not-so-special agates and some jasper, and the pictured rock, which I thought was wind polished jasper- but it broke and had what looks to be brachiopods inside. I assume this is sedimentary or metamorphic. What is the relation between the agates in this region and the kind of specimen here? Why are there so many agate fields in this area of S Dak?
  6. Petrified wood?

    I found this on a beach on Puget Sound the other day. The parallel grain caught my eye as possibly petrified wood, but there are tons of various jaspers and agates and such on the beaches here, so it's hard to be sure. I took photos from a couple angles after I'd sanded a couple faces lightly with sandpaper. Thoughts?

    One of many pieces of jasper I collected on The North Saskatchewan River
  9. A few months ago, I traveled to Jasper, Texas for a family event. On the drive home, I took a side road about fifteen minutes North of Jasper and found a creek that looked interesting. The creek was flowing well, and there was a lot of material in the creek bed with water rushing over it. The attached pictures show specimens that I collected from the creek that day. From the locale and appearance, I had thought these to be Palmoxylon. However, in looking at numerous online images, I wasn’t able to find any petrified palm that looked quite like these samples. I’m thinking that this may just be due to these specimens being extremely weathered, but I’m not sure. I would appreciate identification assistance from those of you with more knowledge in this area. Thanks! Specimen 1: Specimen 2: I've run out of room for pictures in this post, so I'll add one more with an additional view of specimen 2.
  10. Costa Rica Trip Nov. 2014

    Just returned from the wonderful country of Costa Rica. The trip was to celebrate my grandmothers 80th birthday! Being this was a family trip, I had limited time for any "back country" explorations, missing too many suppers would not have gone over well!! So I decided I would take day trips to as many beaches as possible, and consider all info collected for a future trip if anything really caught my eye. We were staying in a villa in Manuel Antone. I walked the local beaches all the way up to Quepos and paid special attention to low tide coral that would trap anything washed up. The current runs north there, so I focused on areas where the land hooked outward to catch the most debris. Beautiful sea shells, mullusks with opalesque interiors and coral were aplenty, but that is not what I was after. After 2 days and a good burn all I found fossil wise was what looks to me like horned coral encapsuled in a light green limestone. I also came across some small chunks of agate that I will have to cut n polish at a later date. I felt I had exhausted my search, and had little reason to believe these finds were deposited by any nearby rivers. So I took a bus ride south down to a little surfing village called Dominical. The beach was all tumbled river rock and driftwood. I had lost my boots on a prior drunken evening and was stuck wearing my girlfriends pink walmart beach shoes... Brutal on the feet!!! I rented a surfboard as the waves were pretty nice, and there was plenty of room in the line up to partake. My cash was in a ziplock bag which I brought out surfing, but due to thieves, I had to bury my cigs and lighter under some rocks, and used some driftwood as directionals to find in the future. While squirreling away my possessions I dropped a piece of burnt driftwood on my rock pile to help cover my stash when I noticed something... The sound was all wrong!! There was no thud, but a high pitched clack!!!! Sure enough, I had myself a piece of petrified wood!! I surfed to my hearts content, and decided to do some investigating. There was more pet wood, not in abundance, but enough to think the source was nearby! When it began to rain I noticed jasper nodules too. I showed the wood to a vendor who was working on a wire wrap necklace. He said its from the river to the south!! This led to 2 fundamental problems, 1- lack of time, 2- a good potential for crocodiles! I had seen my fill of crocs there already, some locals would feed them chickens for tips from tourists... They are quick!!!! They are mean!!! And I'm in their house!! I decided I will have to return in the future for a surfing/digging trip. I have a local guide set up for the river, he wants the wood for jewlery. I promised to teach him how to set up cheap lap saw/ polishing units so he didn't have to pay someone else for cutting his jewlery. Airfare is cheap after the new year. I'll pick up on this thread later!!!
  11. Got some samples of things you can find in the ever-shrinking Neosho river banks. Is that a crab and tooth concretion? And what's the impression of? Can anyone help with ID on the rocks too?
