  1. I found this about 10 years back. In my little bit of research I found that petrified/fossilized mushrooms are very rare and mine is most likely fake. Where did it come from if it is not real? I am convinced that it was not machined out because of the large cavity inside and such a small hole in the stem area. Could this be casted? Can anyone explain what this is or if its real/fake? Thanks!
  2. Fossil ID Please!

    Could this be a fossilized/petrified moth? I found it while beachcombing on The Bolivar Peninsula in Texas just the other day. Thanks in advance.

  4. Petrified Mushroom/ fungus

    This is the first petrified bone I have found, is that the correct thing to call it? Hope the image is good enough, it is just one single row of rounded teeth. Dying to know what it is! North Texas creek.
  13. petrified ginger root?

    Found this on a hike in Negev desert (Israel). It feels like a stone, but the shape is somewhat unusual for a stone. Could it be a piece of petrified ginger root? Any ID help really welcomed - and thank you!

    Found in South Georgia. Very smooth on one side and one end. Very heavy for its size. I thought it was petrified wood at first but someone told me it looked like a piece of tusk so I thought I would post some pics. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  20. Petrified Wood Collection

    I have at least nine or ten pieces of petrified wood, this first one is my favorite due to all the wood grain details that are visible. It is also my biggest piece!
  21. Possible Petrified Wood?

    I have a small collection of petrified wood that I collect from river rock used for landscaping. I have found several pieces in my backyard and in my grandmother's backyard (I will have to check her front now since she got some new river rock installed). Sometimes I think I grabbed a piece, but later I question myself. Can I get come clarification??
  22. Petrified Wood

    Hello, Just thought I'd share my favorite piece of petrified wood It's not much, but I think it's pretty and some may like to see it. I moistened it with water to bring out the colors, because you can still see the wood grain in this one! I have several smaller pieces, and they don't have the same kind of wood grain detail preserved. Oddly enough, it was found in my Grandma's backyard among the river rock where she used to have a small pond.
  23. Any Help? Because I Have No Clue.

    I found this in the woods. It had been pulled out from wherever it was and was sitting on a trash can. To me, which I am not even a novice at this, I would say it is petrified. It is not bone colored and does not feel like bone but it is obviously some kind of bone. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  24. Hello. On my stretch of the Northumberland coast in England I have found evidence of petrified trees, such as this stump. I can find no information about them online in my location, so please could you tell me (based on this stump) when would it have been a living tree and probably what type of tree? At various points along the coast the remains are usually within grey mudrock or grainy sandstone, but this stump is in hard solid rock (I don't know of what type; maybe of silt as it's not visibly grainy). What would the environment have been like here when this tree was alive? Anything extra you can tell me specifically about this tree/stump in the context of my location would be gratefully received; I need as much info as possible, so any further sources of location specific help you could point me towards would be fantastic. Thank you very much.
  25. Petrified Turtle ?
