    Possible Stone Tools

    Hi These are some stones I Found in Middle Georgia in Bibb County. I'm new at fossils and I feel like all of these stones where tools of some sort. So any opinions are very welcome amd appreciated. The one that resembles a snake head appears to me. That it may have been made from the Upper Jaw of A petrified Frilled Shark. I could be very wrong I'm not sure but the details on the side that wasn't smoothed looks to me just like one. Thank You for all your opinions. I look forward to reading them

    Petrified Wood or Just Rock?

    Found this in South Dakota with other petrified wood. I’m just wondering if this piece is for sure petrified wood, or just a rock? Thank you!

    Plant or animal?

    Hello dear members, my 10 year old son found this little stone (1.5 inches long) in a backyard in Michigan (lower peninsula). We found petoskey stones (fossilized rugose coral, Hexagonaria percarinata.)there as well and hope to find someone who can tell us if this is a petrified animal or plant? Especially the little white part looks so interesting to us, perhaps someone knows more. We’re no experts and just started collecting:) Thank you very much!

    Petrified Pear?

    hello, this object has passed through three generations in my family, and now it was passed on to me. They told me it's a petrified pear, but I have my doubts, what do you think? I took the photos next to a pear to comparision. in the last photo I joined several photos at different angles.

    Does anyone know what this might be?

    I am new to this forum so please forgive me if I don't do something right. I was rock hunting this weekend near a NW Missouri small river and came across this. It looks like a petrified animal LOL. I am just baffled! It is in pure rock form. It's about 1.5" tall and about a half inch wide.

    Petrified…bone? Wood?

    I found this curious item in a wild space at the back of our house in London. Around 20cm long, initially thought it looked like a bone. But then picking it up was very heavy for its size, have weighed it as 1.75kg. Looks sort of like a bone from certain angles, but maybe more likely to be petrified wood? What do people think? Very curious to know what it looks like if sliced open. Would that be advised? How would one go about having that done?

    What is this Rock?

    Hello everyone I found this stone in the middle of a sandy desert. 60cm long, 15cm wide, very heavy. When I cut it in half, I was very surprised at all these pretty colors. Which kind of stone is it? Any idea?

    Chromium Petrified Wood?!?!

    Hey all! I haven’t posted in a long time but I was too excited about this. I absolutely love petrified wood. I love the colours, the rings, the detail! My wonderful husband bought me this AMAZING piece of petrified wood from a local rock shop. I took it home, gave it a bath and a good scrub. It’s green! Now I've heard about the chromium petrified wood from Arizona but I have NO idea where this one came from. It’s super heavy at 25.7lbs!! I absolutely adore this piece and even if it isn’t chromium wood, it’s definitely stunning!

    Help with identification

    I apologize for not providing better photos and size reference (yellow thing beside it is a kayak paddle if that helps) it was much to large and heavy for us to carry out along with the full 5 gallon bucket haha. The last two photos were found in the same place. Again sorry for not having size reference. I promise I'll do better in the future. Any ideas what these could be? Crossing my fingers for petrified bones :-)

    Found in Northern VA on Potomac River. Black rock that looks like petrified wood.
  18. Hello to all. Although I exhibited this sample in the next topic, I think that it is worthy of a separate publication. For all the time of my finds, I came across such a sample for the first time. It is a long branch (about 80 cm) with a large knot in the middle. I had to tinker, extracting it from the red clay. It originates from the Araukarite Formation of the Gzhel Stage of the Upper Pennsylvania Carboniferous period (303.4 Ma). Found in the Donetsk region of Ukraine.
  19. Hello 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). Unless otherwise specified, it means that the default sample is from this formation. The type of substitution is silicification (sometimes with ferruginization), sometimes with quartz crystals on the surface of the samples. Enjoy watching Part 1. Sample 1.

    Paleocene petrified wood?

    I found this piece at Douglas Point on the Potomac a while back. I set it aside for a snowy day not sure if it was bone or something else. Definitely fossilized, but a little weird for bone. Taking a closer look today at the recently broken end, I think I see growth rings. And maybe thin bark on the outside? Is this petrified wood? If so, it would be a first for me from there.

    bone or petrified wood?

    Greetings from Central Florida, friends. I found this piece today and I assumed it was bone because I find so many smaller, similar looking pieces of bone at this spot. On closer examination, one side seems to be cut pretty neatly. Can anyone positively identify this as bone or wood? If wood, is it palm? Thanks for reading!

    Is this fossilized bone?

    This was found in a cave in Vance. It has a mineral growth on it that glows a neon yellow color under a uv light. The camera makes it appear green but here are some photos. Tell me what y'all think.
