  1. can you ID this fossil?

    Can anyone help me identify this fossil. It is in a piece of black marble quarried in southwest Vermont. The rock is 5" long, the fossil in it is 4.25" long, 1" wide at widest point.
  2. Day Two ; Locality One (or Six if you include Day One) Black Sahara, South of Erfoud 20th February 2019 Well this is where things really get interesting, so stick with this thread as there are dozens of photos of fossils coming up. Looks at the tags if you want clues. I was up bright and early and wandered out at about 7 am to watch the sun rise over the still mighty Erg Chebbi dunes. And as night's candles were burnt out and jocund day stood tiptoe over the misty duney tops, the chaps came to join me and managed lots of photos. Here's one, if you would like to see more, I'm busy posting a kazillion of 'em under the Nature Photography thread.
  3. fossil in marble

    I found these fossils on the marble pylons at the railway station. Please, what are they? Thanks for answer.
  4. Fossils in marble

    Hello! Can you please help me in identifying the marked fossils and give an estimation on their age? The fossils are found in my office's marble wall and floor coverings. There are many more fossils all over the building. The size of them are generally between 5 and 15cm. Thank you in advance!
  5. Algae ?

    This rock was found in association with blasted rock that was used as rail bed fill. I have reason to believe that it is Ordovician in age based on the distinctive appearance shared with rocks that members have identified a different type of algae in. The strand of honey comb like shapes is about 2 mm long. I suspect it may be part of the net like structure in the rock whose morphology happened to be better preserved.
  6. "River Balls"

    These ended up on my desk the other day. It seems like I recall some posts here on the ID forum with similar objects. Thought I'd post this here for future reference.
  7. round something about 4 inches across

    I dont know much about this or where it was found as it was in a closet in a house my friend bought. its not perfectly round or I would say billiard ball...lol...I am thinking its marble or quartz but on the slim chance I posted it here.
  8. Possible crinoid stems?

    While on vacation at a (rented) beach house last week, I noticed that the (marble?) kitchen countertop had some interesting shapes contained within the stone. Many of the shapes have the appearance of cross-sections of crinoid stems. I know that marble is a metamorphic rock, so if the original rock had contained fossils, could there still be recognizable remnants of the fossils? Please let me know if I'm thinking along the right lines, and whether these look like crinoid stems to you. The reference coin has a diameter of 21 mm; I have no idea where the countertop rock was quarried.
  9. Small wormlike fossils in hard mineral

    I'm still brand new here, and hoping that help from the ID posts will get me moving in the right direction. We have so many fossils here in Cincinnati and the outlying regions.. Thank you for helping!
  10. Bamboo?? In marble?? In oregon??

    Me and a buddy were looking for some limestone caves that had a bunch of calcite... long story short we drove to this abandoned marble quarry it was massive and the quality of marble was magnificent... after a long day of hiking and climing around this snarge mountain for the 3rd day and still couldnt find said cave so we headed back to the car disappointed and defeated.. we walked past a bunch of broken boulders of marble and old workings of the quary... i was admiring the beauty of this marble when i saw what looked like a clay imprint of a plant in the side of the marble.. not knowing anything about fossils having never found one and being relativity new to rock hounding i wasnt sure what to think of it and as i walked around this good sized bolder on the other side was a black imprint like on the othere side then it hit me... no one did this this cant be a carving too remote and just in a pile of boulders.... so it had to be a fossil.. but how was it so perfect and when was the last time southern oregon had bamboo...... so we didnt know what we had (still dont ) but we knew we had to get it but it was too big for the two of us so we decided to crack it down the middle so we could save both faces and put it in the truck witch we did... Now i have no idea what it is if its real or what i should do with it.. i am most likely going to reach out to a local rock club or museum but thought i would do some research on my own (considering. I know nothing about fossils) first...so heres some pics please tell me anything you can... what you think? I dont see it being a fraud i found other inprints in that area but nothing like this...
  11. NSR Mix

  12. Petoskey too hard?

    HI there, I recently found a Petoskey Stone among others on the same tiny (12 foot) beach in Mid/Upper Michigan, as I have for years in the same location. Only...this one's different. I can't seem to polish it down entirely by hand OR with a dremel. It has a lot of beveled structure still compared to others I've seen, and it just feels HARD. There also seem to be tiny crystal bits in some places. Can Pestoskey Stones (limestone as I understand it) harden into Travertine or Marble and retain their distinct pattern and shape?
  13. Large marble like fossil

    This fossil was given to me years ago. It's approx 11"X7"X2.5" any idea as to what type of fossil it is and ideas on approximate value?
  14. Help identifying this fossil

    Hi, We have located this fossil in our home marble floor - the marble variety is Crema Marfil (origin Spain). Is this a Trilobite?
  15. I know this is a fossil site but i was hoping someone here may have came across something like this before and may have some info to pass on. i found this near fenton, mi near a old tree while tilling. It was a little over 20 inches deep. it is almost perfectly round very very smooth and heavy and extremely hard. When hit by my tiller it got no damage only damaged my tiller. The tiller left metalic marks on the stone. i have since used my different things to try to scratch it with no luck. everything i use just just damaged. the item weighs around 41.7 grams
