    Help identify this fossil

    Please help me to identify this fossil. I am new to this and came across this unique find. I gave Google lenses it and came up empty. Any help to this will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Seed, egg or nut

    I was guessing some sort of accreation but when a friend dropped it I became confused. Any help greatly appreciated. Found on friends property in the foothills of Denver, CO. USA near the Fossil Trace GG (yes they actually have fossils imbedded in cliffs and other features on the golf course.) P.S. I ordered a centimeter graph pad and hopefully this will be last "improper" post

    Fossil Seed - Nut - Fruit

    In a collection I recently acquired, some of the fossils in the collection had no ID with them. This fossil looks real familiar to me but I cant remember where or when I saw it. 27mm or a little over an inch long. Any help is appreciated.

    NJ Rock or Fossil

    Hello all, my name is Sam and I'm new on this site. I need help trying to figure out if this rock I just found yesterday is a fossilized egg or nut. Measures 1 3/4" in length and 1 1/2" in height. I think it's a fossilized nut. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!

    Fossilized nut or fig?

    Hi all, This fossil was found along one of the tributaries of the Crystal River in Florida It appears to be some sort of fossilized fig or nut. Does anyone here have any ideas as to its age or species? A fossilized horse tooth and a Savannah River arrowhead were found nearby. I believe the arrowhead is more recent than the fossils.

    fossilised nut?

    Found this little fossil in chert/flint gravel, and heard a rattling. Upon breaking open, there was a smaller lighter coloured fossil inside, leading me to believe it is some sort of nut. It has what looks to be a scar at the bottom, possibly for attaching? it split neatly along the line into two parts.

    Anyone have ARO parts

    I figured I'd throw this out to the masses- does anyone have a spare nut (item 39448) for an ARO 8315? This is the piece with 2 flats near where the air comes in. Evidently, I over-tightened mine and ripped the threads off. A very quick search online shows one possible source in California and one in the UK, but if anyone here has an old unit they're keeping for parts, may as well try to keep it in the "family". Thanks in advance.
  8. Hi to Forum members; I am an amateur rock collector who likes to look for fossils. For the most part I have not found anything fantastic but I am hopeful. I kindly request any information and or comments about a recent flint specimen from my back garden in Ipswich, Tuddenham Road. I have other photos of the flint that show unusual structures. On those photos, I used my photo app to adjust the exposure to get more fine detail. If it will help, I would gladly share. Also from my back garden, I found a petrified seed/pod/nut shell. Can someone help me identify what it is

    Another Fossilized Nut?

    I dug up an old post about what the user suspected to be a fossilized walnut. It looks a little too similar to my suspected nut to be coincidence. Both were found in Indiana. Original thread
  10. I found this fossil on a job site. I look regularly and usually only find crinnoids (geodized) and maybe a few native american artifacts. But for the most part just flint, geodes, and other random stones. But my son and i are both very excited about it. We have never seen or heard of a fosslized nut.

    Clarno Volcanic Field

    Nut, seed, or egg? Discovered near Ashwood, Oregon. Outer shell cracked open at end. Golden hue inside specimen.

    Egg, Concretion, or Neither?

    I recently bought the item shown in the attached photos online. (Images show the front and back.) Unfortunately, the seller did not know exactly what it was, so it was sold to me as a 'mystery item'. Is it a concretion, or something else perhaps? The circle within a circle with the raised 'egg-like' formation has me a bit confused. Thank you for your help everyone! **First post - I'd like to say that I'm very grateful and excited to be here.

    Fossilized nut? Or just rock.

    I was looking for fossils around a bunch of small rocks and came across this, it was heavier than the other rocks and seems to have a “soft” feel and not hard and scatchy. Any info is appreciated
  14. MelodyAnne


    I found a bunch of fossilized seashells on the Oregon coast, and I found this nut in the sea wall. I'm fairly sure its hollow and fossilized. What is it and how old? Any ideas?
  15. I hammered this free from a chunk of ironstone. Ironstone matrix. I thought it was completely round like a marble nut the more I inspected I see some traits that this is a designed specimen with a symmetrical pattern and some unique patterns. Any ideas?

    Fossilized bones

    I have these bones I found yesterday. Can anyone identify them? Any help is very much appreciated!

    Fossilized nut?

    My daughter and I took our Husky down to the river (more like a creek in the summer) to play earlier today. The river is so low right now you're basically walking on a rock bed. I found what looks to be a small petrified walnut. I tried searching the net but couldn't find anything similar. The closest I found someone said it could be a type of sponge? The lines on it kind of curve around to the back to where it looks like it could have hung on a branch. I know nothing about fossils but we have found a few from just being out hiking. We found what we think is a petrified deer tooth

    First time finds

    I took my 5 year old son out today for our first time fossil hunting. We went to Warden point in Kent and had a good time despite the rain and wind! Amongst various bits of fossilised wood we picked this up. It's possibly another piece of wood but I'd appreciate and identification. Thanks. Great forum! Here's another angle And one more
  19. Joggins

    fossilized nut at Joggins cliff?

    I found a few of these at Joggins fossil cliffs on Nova Scotia. I wonder if it's a nut from the Coal Age tree in the forest fossilized within the cliffs?
  20. Barasingha

    Fossilized Nut?

    Found this in the Chesapeake Bay, Miocene period. To me it looks like a nut with division of hemispheres. Rock hard. Thoughts?
  21. kebbiet

    plant or insect?

    I found this on a rock pile on an upstate (Palmyra area) New York farm. Glacial drumlins run north south. I have no training or experience infossil id but my biology background sees a nut/seed pod or a larvae/cocoon. Teardrop on one end and attachment? on the other. Can you help me id this?
  22. MDHunter

    Fossilized Nut?

    I found this specimen at a location in Piscataway, MD. In the area I discovered it, I also found an abundance of turritella molds and fossilized sand tiger shark teeth. But what in the world is this? It has the wedge like shape of a nutshell, but is completely mineralized (it's rock solid), and has an exterior texture that is possibly nut-like but could also be a skin-like texture. Please help!

    Some Sorta Nut?

    Hi everyone! When I was a little kid I found this fossil while swimming in Lake Cumberland in Kentucky. I've always cherished it, but now I kinda what to know what the heck it is! I'm guessing some sorta nut or seed, but I'd like to get more specific answers. Any ideas?? Thanks!

    Please Help Identify

    Please help me identify this fossil. We are thinking it may be some kind of a nut. I found this about 5 years ago along Lake Michigan. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
