  1. Some years ago I found this among the red rocks just beyond Zion National Park. I thought it was a stone with erosion and wore it around my neck until someone told me it was a petrified bone. I took it to a place in NYC that specializes in fossils and they told me to go to the Museum of Natural History because they could not identify it but definitely thought it was something. I thought I should let you guys take a crack at it. Photos are of two sides with the second side showing a distinct darkness around the putative foramen. I have additional photos. I am new at this and appreciate any insights or thoughts. Thank-you! Dimensions: Length: 3.25" (8.5 cm) Width: 1.25" (3.0 cm) Thickness: 0.25" (app. 0.5 cm) Foramen: 0.25" (app. 0.5cm)
  2. Feedback appreciated

    Completely new to all of this so please forgive my lack of knowledge. This was dug up in my front pasture by the gas company expanding the lines. This is ap 3’ x 12” My property is on sandstone with a variety formations. Thank you in advance on any information and opinions.
  3. Petrified Mushroom?

    Hey everyone, totally new to this site, just signed up. I found (actually my dog found) what seems to be a petrified mushroom in our backyard in Colorado. I know these are very rare but not sure what else it could be...any suggestions? I appreciate your help!
  4. Help me I.D.

    A friend of mine asked me to try and help her identify this fossil. It is clearly a piece of a jaw bone with 3 teeth still visible. It has been in her family for some time so no knowledge of origin location. But they have resided in Utah for many generations so I assume it was going within the state.
  5. Petrified fungi

    Just need some advice on this fungus if it is fungus I believe it's a mushroom it's hard as a rock and weighs about 40 lb any help would be great.
  6. Nut

    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?
  7. Any ideas on what this might be?

    This comes from 600+ft of water off the coast of maine. It seems to be petrified wood or coral. Any ideas?
  8. Petrified Log?

    Hello! I've had this in my yard for years and years. I'm not sure as to what type of tree it is or what kind of growths are on it. It looks to be like a lot of varieties of quartz. Any info is greatly appreciated!.. thanks!
  9. Just thought I'd share some photos of a pretty nice specimen. Cube is 1". Found it buried in the garden at a recent estate sale. Amazing detail and when rapped it has a very high pitched ping! Best to all you diggers!
  10. Quite tempted by this petrified head on the big auction site. I think it’s a steal at a mere $6000. Not.
  11. This looks like a vertebra but not sure

    I found this on the Frio river bed by Uvalde, Tx and it looks like a vertabra of some kind. Rather large and it has the common shape and segments. Here’s a picture
  12. Petrified Tree Stump

    I found this petrified tree stump today in very good condition. It weighs approximately 100 lbs, stands 1 foot tall and is 10 inches in diameter. Not sure on what kind of tree it was but it still has the bark. I was curious of how much I could sell this for. I found it near the Frio River and it hasn’t been cut or polished. I did wash the dirt off of it but thats it.
  13. Hello from Virginia as well.

    Found this in a mountain run off running thru my property. The outer part looks to be bark that is hard as a rock.
  14. Hello from Virginia as well.

    Found this neat looking rock this weekend. It has a ring around its outer area that looks like bark and is hard as rock. Could this be Petrified Wood?
  15. Petrified Wood Stump

    That is located at the begginning of Sissonsville rd in Cross Lanes you can see it from space https://earth.google.com/web/@38.42921102,-81.74297347,209.10297332a,40.29025545d,35y,0.55328534h,1.72088705t,
  16. Petrified wood ?

    Found this in draw in backyard. Think it's petrified wood. Any help would be appreciated.
  17. Plant material?

    This is obviously not a seed fern fossil, but the "fossil guy" at the flea market across the river in Jersey told me that it is a fern. My understanding was that it is petrified plant material, a petrified fern. I'm not confident in his identification as he, I now know, missed several identifiable pieces (crinoid columnals and a chunk of perfect rose quartz, for example) or simply wasn't as into looking as he said he was. So, I need another ID! Again, as usual, it was found under the bridge behind my house in Bucks County, PA along the creek not far from the Delaware river.
  18. Baby, It's Cold Outside

    The hubbub of the holidays is over. The cold, crisp air has descended here in the Mid-Atlantic. The ground is frozen, but I was craving sunshine and the hunt. With blue skies today and the promise of snow tomorrow, I headed to the one place I was reasonably certain wouldn't be completely frozen -- the Delaware Bay. After all, we put salt on the roads here to keep them from freezing. How cold is it this week? Cold enough to freeze salt water! Here and there, exposed spots dotted the beach and the highest part of the bank, above the high tide line, was still exposed. There were a few pebbles here and there, but the odds of finding something in such scant gravel wasn't promising. I spent the next hour with a friend, exploring the ice formations with cameras. Still, my beloved beach did not disappoint. I found a couple of little favosites corals in the freezing tide pools and a 3-inch chunk of local petrified wood lying along the trash line. There is something ironic about finding petrified - silicified - wood frozen to the beach sand!

  23. Petrified Mushroom?

  24. Petrified Wood?

    Very new to the fossil game and i need some help. Think i came to the right place! Found this on a hike in SE Alaska and i think its petrified wood. Thoughts? Thanks!
  25. Fossil bone, wood, or other?

    I briefly explored an old creek outside of Dallas, TX yesterday; a creek I used to explore as a kid. I didn't find much at all because it was so overgrown and difficult to access these days. I found a few pretty river rocks, a nice little shell fossil and what appears to be either a little piece of petrified wood or bone. I took macro photos of it tonight. Please let me know what you think. I'm baffled. Larger fossil bone pieces, with this color/texture, have been found in this creek many years ago.
