  1. I found a strange little critter in a chunk of Tabulate coral from the Nashville area when I was cleaning it. Most fossils from the area are 438-458 million years old. Any idea what would inhabit tabulate coral? I also included some other areas of the 20 pound chunk of silicified Tabulate corals. They vary in direction and over lay each other in various directions. I added more addition pieces to show high silicification and types in the area. The little critter is about 5mm across the dome.

    Beginner's Luck?!

    I went fossil hunting for the first time and took my 5 year old. I was SO FUN! What made it better is that we actually found a few things! I think its horn coral, possibly orthoceras. I think i found a piece of a fish on a small rock, though it's hard to see. Possibly some worm fossils. Then I found a small crinoid piece. The one with horn coral is part of a huge matrix and I want to know if anyone else sees anything. The last several pictures are all different sides of the large one. Thanks everyone for looking!

    Fossilized Wood or Stone?

    I found this in a creek in middle Tennessee. I’m wondering if it is just a rock or if it could be petrified wood? Thanks!
  4. Found this guy today. Anyone know what it is. Found 25 miles northeast of Nashville. In chert with corral horns and crinoids.

    Please Help Identify these fossils

    I have lived on this property in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee for over 35 years. I have been noticing these fossils while working in a shade garden on the property. I believe they are some form of fossilized coral. I tried to find help in the Audubon Society Field Guide and by searching on line, but did not find anything that completely matched my samples. I have selected several pieces that I hope my help identify the fossils. The pieces I have found are usually 1-1 1/2" inches in diameter, and somewhat spherical. Many of the colonies are shaped like a 5 pointed star and appear in somewhat

    Need Help Identifying Tooth

    After a big storm last week, I found this tooth on the sandbar of North Lick Creek in Williamson County, Tennessee. Does anyone have an idea what animal it’s from? I was thinking maybe Mosasaur.

    Brachiopod Imprint?

    I found this rock in a middle Tennessee creek. (Mississippian, St. Louis Limestone & Warsaw Limestone) I thought it had a brachiopod imprint, but haven’t seen one with such a deep, almost rectangular indentation on one side. Any thoughts?
  8. BLT

    Coral or Sponge?

    I found this little rock in the creek that borders my property several weeks ago. (Mississippian, St. Louis Limestone & Warsaw Limestone) For some reason, it is one of my favorite finds thus far. Is it a brachiopod embedded in a piece of coral or sponge?

    Crinoid Calyx?

    My husband found this in a middle Tennessee creek this morning. (Mississippian, St. Louis Limestone & Warsaw Limestone) Is it a type of fossilized crinoid calyx?

    Identification Request

    Here is another rock from a middle Tennessee creek. (Mississippian, St. Louis Limestone & Warsaw Limestone) It is full of tiny brachiopods, bryozoan bits and maybe a few other fossils. I would like to have the area circled in red identified.

    Identification Request

    I found this rock in a middle Tennessee creek this morning. (Mississippian, St. Louis Limestone & Warsaw Limestone) I would like to know if it is some type of fossil? If not, which type of rock/mineral is it? I’ve seen somewhat similar rocks around here, but nothing quite like this one.
  12. Here is another rock which I found in a middle Tennessee creek. (Mississippian, St. Louis Limestone & Warsaw Limestone) This one also has a lot going on within it. There are several fossils I’d like to have identified, but am most curious about the area I circled in red. This rock had a lot of algae (or moss?) growing on it. Is the area which I circled even a fossil?

    I found this rock in a middle Tennessee creek. (Mississippian, St. Louis Limestone & Warsaw Limestone) What is the area circled in red? It almost has the shape of a large tooth, but not the texture. Is it fossilized coral?
  14. This is another middle Tennessee creek find. (Mississippian, St. Louis Limestone & Warsaw Limestone) I thought it might be a fossilized sponge? If so, what are the tiny whitish specks embedded in it?
  15. BLT

    ID Request

    I found this small rock in a middle Tennessee creek. (Mississippian, St. Louis Limestone & Warsaw Limestone) Is the area circled in red some type of ammonoid?

    White Rock

    Can anyone let me know which type of rock this is? It is white with tan specks (possibly a type of tiny fossil?) stuck all over it. I found it in my yard in middle Tennessee. Thanks!
  17. BLT


    I am wondering is this a bryozoan, or something else? There are several of them in this rock. It is from my yard in middle Tennessee. (Mississippian, St. Louis Limestone & Warsaw Limestone)

    Crinoid Stems?

    I found this rock in a creek in middle Tennessee. (Mississippian, St. Louis Limestone & Warsaw Limestone) @Bobby Rico Using your iPhone macro lens tips, I was just now able to magnify an area of this rock which I’ve been wanting to know more about for a while. (I wasn’t aware of the zoomed-in magnifying technique, so thanks for posting!) I’m thinking it is a cluster of three crinoid stems?

    Could This Be A Fossil?

    I found this rock in a creek in middle Tennessee. (Mississippian, St. Louis Limestone & Warsaw Limestone) It caught my eye because there appeared to be a hole in the rock. After getting it out of the creek and cleaning it a bit, I’ve noticed the “hole” is actually an indentation in the rock with several raised lines around it. I’m wondering if it could be a crinoid? Also, the other side of this rock had another area I found interesting. Any thoughts on what it could be?
  20. I found this little rock in a creek in middle Tennessee. (Mississippian, St. Louis Limestone & Warsaw Limestone) I know there is a brachiopod and bryozoan in it, but am wondering if the area circled in red (last picture) is also a brachiopod, or something els?

    Coral or Concretion?

    I found this in the creek that borders my property in middle Tennessee. (Mississippian, St. Louis Limestone & Warsaw Limestone) I’m wondering if it is a type of fossilized coral?
  22. When we purchased our home, this large rock was one of many in a rock garden. I have always liked the unusual look of it. There are several brachiopod fragments and what I believe to be crinoid stems and imprints in it. I would like to know which type of rock it is and how the crinoid stem crystallized?

    Fossil ID Request

    This is another middle Tennessee creek find I would like to have identified. (Mississippian, St. Louis Limestone & Warsaw Limestone)

    What Are These Fragments?

    I have previously posted pics from this large hash plate, but didn’t post any of the areas pictured here. (I thought it was just part of the sediment.) Now I’m wondering if these could actually be fragments of the trilobits which were previously identified in other areas of this hash plate. Or possibly some type of thick shell?
  25. I’m hoping someone will tell me which type of fossils are on this rock. It was found in a creek in middle Tennessee, which is in the Mississippian with St. Louis Limestone & Warsaw Limestone. Thanks.
