petrified fern trunk?
nickja posted a topic in Fossil IDHi I found this petrified log of some sort in a sandstone cliff near Inverness Cape Breton Island and am wondering if anyone here knows what it would have been interesting looking pattern around the outside its how I would imagine the bark of a giant fern/ palm tree trunk would have looked long ago , also does anyone know how I could clean it up and bring out more of the bark like texture without damaging the fossil?
My Carboniferous collection
Svetlana posted a topic in Member CollectionsHello to all. This is my collection of flora from the Carboniferous period. This topic will be filled gradually - there is a lot of material. All material originates from the Araukarite Formation of the Gzhel Stage of the Upper Pennsylvania Carboniferous period (303.4 Ma).

Just thought I'd share a pretty cool petrified wood fossil log
glenmorenee posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionJust thought I'd share some photos of a pretty nice specimen. Cube is 1". Found it buried in the garden at a recent estate sale. Amazing detail and when rapped it has a very high pitched ping! Best to all you diggers!
