  1. petrified wood ID help

    I found these stones among stones of the digging residue of the suez canal . hope to know your opinion and encouragement as this is a very new start .
  2. This past weekend I was able to enjoy a rare February day of sunshine and temperatures above 50-degrees F (10-degrees C) in a vast expanse of public land owned by the U.S. government and in care of the Bureau of Land Management located in northwestern New Mexico. The area where I ventured is Upper Cretaceous though I am not sure of any period beyond that general age. Of the fossil related items I ran across, the first two photos show some petrified wood from a ground level stump. I noted some unfamiliar calcite patterns that were vaguely diamond shaped. The second photo shows an outline of these patterns and my rock hammer is there as an 11-inch (28-centimeter) scale. A friend of mine who knows considerably more than I do about fossilized plant life informed me this was once a cypress tree. The next two photographs shows a large surprise sticking out from under a mound of soil. Since this was BLM land, the bone remains in situ since collection is verboten. I have no further information on the bone. As a late addition while I can still edit this post, I can't believe I forgot about the petrified palm wood I found. I got it cut up and have attached a photo of it here. One thing that was pretty cool about the palm wood, and hopefully it is visible if you enlarge the photo, is that the vascular bundles (the dots you see all over the wood) due to compression of the wood prior to fossilization aren't really round but have been distorted and shaped like half-moons. This is commonly seen in other specimens collected in my area of the country and I'm sure elsewhere.
  3. Found this here in western Colorado I have done some looking online closest thing i can find is fossil/petrified palm wood it would be from the Niobrara Formation, Smoky Hill Member and is Upper/Late Cretaceous. What do you guys think? Did a quick polish too quick as you can see all the scratches haha Thanks anyone that can help

  9. Petrified piece of a boat?

    Need help identifying this
  10. 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
  11. What kind of tree?

    I have a number of nice pieces of petrified wood found in Central MS area while hunting with MS. Gem & Mineral club 20 years ago. Can anyone tell me what tree this would have been from? Hope the pictures are clear enough to help. Thanks, Deb (White Feather)
  12. Petrified Fungus?

    Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum, but I always lurked here without an account and learned a lot, so I made one to become part of the community since I collect and study fossils as a hobby. Now for the piece mentioned on the title, would you be able to help me figure what kind of fossil (or even if its one) is this? The structure reminds me of some fungus, like a polypore, but I cant figure what kind it is or if its an igneous rock or some kind of wood. I know some bracket fungus when dry can become really hard. Unfortunaly I dont have the item in my hands right now, as its from an auction that I won and I'm still going to retrieve it from the owner. All he knows is that it came from an american geologist collection in California and that it is really really old. It has 19 cm, not sure about the weigh tho. Thanks!
  13. Tree Fossil?

    Found this piece of sandstone in Sullivan Co., PA. It comes from either the Huntley Mtn. Fm. (Mississippian/Devonian) or the Burgoon Ss. (Mississippian). What could have made these concentric rings? They go through the rock perpendicular to bedding. It's odd that the center is mostly round but further out is more square. Could it be a tree fossil? That is the only thing I can think of.
  14. Is this Petrified Wood limb?

    I was wonderimg if this is petrified wood. I believe it is, but nit sure what it is replaced with. Any help would be appreciated.
  15. Human fingers?

    Found these by a body of water in a field what look like it would have been a good place for an Indian Mound if it look the same then as it does now
  16. Silicified bone

    Found this any info is appreciated. No limestone and not much quartz in the area this was found. Everything about it is very hard and possibly silicified. Thanks Jason
  17. north florida find - tusk? bone?

    Hey all - A friend found this in north Florida close to a natural spring (Blue Springs in Jackson County). It was found close to the surface during some post-Hurricane Michael clean up. It's fairly heavy and dense. I didn't have a ruler, but I've placed it beside a standard 3x5 index card to give an example of size. Any guesses?!?!
  18. I give up. What is thisl?

    Hello - I have spent hours with this rock under the microscope hoping to find a clue that will help me confirm what it is, but....I know NOTHING about this stuff so it's best I just ask. So about 3 years ago I acquired 2 interesting looking rocks. I was told they were found here in Ventura, California along the Santa Clara river bed and I believe they were found within the last 30yrs. This first one is interesting as it looks like there's what looks like a lizard head to me protruding out of it. It also looks like it has an outer shell and in some areas you can see crystals on the inside of the rock. Could this be an egg fossil? Any help with this is greatly appreciated! Also, I can send additional pictures if needed. Thank you!
  19. Info required please

    Hi, new to the forum so please bear with me ! My Dad was a coal miner and he had several fossils which I “inherited” when he passed away 17 years ago. Among them is what seems to me to be a small, heavy petrified mussel (photo attached). It’s about an inch and a half across, very heavy and looks to be completely intact. I’m just after an explanation of how it cane to be and a rough idea of age ? It was found in amongst a seam of coal around 2000 feet below an estuary. Any info would be gratefully received ! Thanks
  20. Fluorescent Silicified Cypress Wood

    From the album Fluorescent Petrified Wood

    One of Delaware's many mysteries is the petrified wood found near Odessa and Smyrna. The general consensus is that is cypress wood of some kind and it was buried under Pleistocene sediments. However, the origin of the wood and the age have yet to be figured out. Some say Miocene. Others say as old as Cretaceous. There are no other co-occurring fossils in the deposit to give any clues. The photo on the right was taken using a 395 nm UV lamp.
  21. Petrified brain coral?

    I found this in my Seattle area yard, near the dead stump of a small maple. After washing and bleaching the septums appear filled with sand and shell bits. There is also something growing throughout it like a veinous system—likely plant? It is heavy. There are striated and mineralized layers. There is a ventricle feature and a faceted stem—it’s disturbingly brain-like. I feel honored to have finally guessed my way through your captcha (respect!)~~hoping someone can identify this oddity. Best guesses so far are coral or fungus, but I’ve not found any examples sporting this stem canal...
