  1. found this in the same creek as my giant petrified burl. Finding things in this creek that don't just crumble is rare. The land I live on is very strange with deep deep slopes and high drop offs in the woods. I recently learned a glacier carved out the land here so thats interesting and explains alot. Can anyone give me their opinions on this peice? It sounds like glass if that helps. Thanks!

    Petrified Wood

    Not sure if this is the right spot for this topic. Found this over the summer here in Iron Co. Missouri while at the creek. Pretty sure it's a chunk of petrified wood. Just wanted to ask you all & make sure. Sorry again, it's 5"x1"x1"
  3. Hello. I offer for trade fragments of petrified wood of the Carboniferous period with crystals of smoky quartz. Some samples are in the photographs (I did not upload all the samples I have, since there are quite a few of them - of different sizes and qualities, as well as the sizes of the crystals themselves. I think we can agree on what specifically interests you - I have no doubt that I will find the sample you need). The origin of this wood is Ukraine, its age is Carbon. I'm interested in marine reptiles and petrified wood. Thank you. Have a nice day
  4. found this near a waterfall in a small town and was wondering what it could be 4inches long 3 wide sort of a round shape
  5. The first is a large piece of petrified driftwood I found in Big Brook a couple years ago, the second is a fragment I am trying to ID. I noticed that the grain texture on the fragment looked like the wood grain on my piece of petrified wood, so I am trying to figure out if it might be petrified wood as well. Thanks! @Trevor

    Human bone?

    Hey guys, we found this petrified bone? today at the baltic sea and we don"t know if it is a human bone or somerhing else.... It is about 3,2 cm long and 1,2 cm (0,6 cm) wide Please help us
  7. A recent find. Has a texture that could be bark, but I am leaning towards coral.
  8. Wasn't sure if this was petrified wood, or just anthracite coal from another location that had gotten lost in the brook. Seems to have bark on one side, but wasn't sure what to make of it.
  9. Hello. It is not possible to define this "scar". Length - 8 cm. Fragment of Carboniferous wood. I would be glad for any help. Thanks. Have a nice evening

    Fossils? Virginia. Help please

    I found this while digging in my garden. Could someone help me and let me know if they can identify it. It looks like a three toed something possibly. This was the only green colored “rock” around. What do you think??
  11. Hello. I want to show you some examples from my collection. This is a Carboniferous wood. The preservation is not the best, but for me these samples are interesting for the presence of crystals of smoky and ordinary quartz on them. A sliver that has broken off from a larger fragment. There is more quartz than wood Perhaps a stem or stump - it is almost round in cross section. And thickly overgrown with crystals. Large flattened fragment; perhaps the first sliver was from it.
  12. These "rocks" were found in North San Antonio, Texas. I started to notice, repeatedly, this similar shape in different "rock". So I started collecting them and now have a large sample of these "rocks" all with this particular shape. I feel the shape is so oddly unique that this can not be a coincidence. The shape is almost identical in each "rock" regardless of size and composition. I was hoping you could explain what this phenomenon is and why or what these are, and why this same shape is so common in "rocks" of different composition? I look forward to your explanation. Thanks for your time.
  13. Good evening. A couple of days ago I managed to go to three places with petrified wood at once. These outlets are not nature reserves; most often, these are fields that are just cultivated, roads and natural outcrops of bedrock (gullies, ravines, etc.). The first place is a small field, as well as a forest protection strip near a spruce planting (it was just plowed up). On a country road, one can see the rock outcrops, in which the wood is hidden. Large cobblestones are also found in the root-bed, but more often these are small sl
  14. Hello. From a recent trip to the Perm-Carboniferous petrified wood, we brought back some very interesting fragments; nothing like this has come across before. Usually we find fragments of wood (chips), without knots, without a pronounced structure - just highly silicified, indeterminate fragments. But while this trip from a small area (just a couple of square meters), we collected several interesting fragments. This is a solid piece of the trunk with knots located at the same level. 7 knots. Another similar fragment, but split lengthwise. There are only 3
  15. Found this morel hunting in an area that floods and with the lack of rain in Minnesota I was able to access this area. I was thinking it is some kind of petrified egg? It was in central Minnesota. It is heavy as a rock and as hard as one. I am sorry for the pictures, I will post more detailed pictures as soon as I have access to a camera. For now though the only thing I can say is my ring is exactly 1" in diameter. Thanks everybody

    Bone or boned?

    Not sure if they're fossilized bone or not. The do stick to my tongue. They're fairly dense and anywhere from 4 to 4½ inches in length.

    Petrified Termite or ant colony

    This was near wear (as best I can tell) a tree was struck by lightning or burnt out at least 40 years ago. It is rock but I’ve soaked it but am scared to use vinegar? Should I chance it? Any idea what it is? It’s 5 inches in Links 4 inches high 3 inches deep this is a close-up picture
  19. Hello! I've been to the main digging site in the Blue Forest of Wyoming a couple of times but would like to try a couple of other sites there. Does anyone have the directions to the other digging areas? Thank you!

    Petrified Wood with a bone?

    Hey Folks, My son and I found a bunch of petrified wood close to our house up here in Cochrane, Alberta. Could the piece next to the wood be bone? E&B

    Petrified Wood ID

    I started collecting smaller chunks of petrified wood but sometimes find these larger chunks that I believe are also petrified wood. I would just like confirmation to make sure I am not misidentifying specimens.

    Caramel colored petrified "wood".

    I recently found this fossilized example on the surface of the desert in east central Utah, Emery county, on the road to chimney rock. The caramel color isn't typical of the petrified wood that I've found before and I'm wondering if this might be another plant such as a palm, fern, cycad, or something else. Growth rings are present but are not particularly strong. The "sap" inside appears to have turned into a different type of mineral. The light green highlights on the surface are lichens and are not part of the stone. Any ideas as to what type of plant this is? Thanks.

    Petrified Wood - Carbonized?

    Hey Folks, We found this hunk this afternoon. Any idea why the piece of wood here in black is carbonized? It comes off when you rub it. Other pieces we found today are definitely fossilized, but this one is different. Any ideas? E & B
  25. I volunteer at school, and while volunteering, I discovered this with some kids while working on the school garden. We were digging and getting boxes ready for the planting season. It was an interesting day! Didn’t expect to find this at a school! Makes me wonder how old it is. Jared
