  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. Petrified birch wood

    From the album Petrified wood

    A Piece of Eocene era Petrified birch wood found in Wyoming
  4. Druse wood from texas

    Can anyone I.D? Covered in tiny crystals, looks like a thousand camera flashes going off when you walk by it. I found all these the other day. The big sparklee one is 40 lbs
  5. What is this

    Not sure what this is. Please help

  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. Petwood with worm and fossil poop?

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me identify these strange fossils I found in the atacama desert in South America. I believe 2 of them are seeds of some sort, and petrified wood with what looks to be a worm, and also a weird poo looking chunk. any thoughts? Thanks The seeds? petrified wood with worm? petrified poo
  11. Petrified Corn Cobs

    Found these by Dilley, Tx in a corn field. It's certainly corn but I have never seen fossils petrify this color. I've found the same mineral as concretions in limestone. I was curious to what everybody else thinks about them.
  12. I found this specimen on a beach in northern michigan. It was found along with sea shell fossils and petaskys.
  13. Mushroom shaped fossil?

    I recently was going through my rock collection from when I was a kid. I have a fossil that looks like a mushroom, but I know this is near to impossible. Found in Dixon Illinois on my families land that was a retired farm over 25 years ago. Any insight???
  14. Bone tool?

    I found this in a creek in Claiborne County, MS. It is bone and it is petrified. The smooth, straight sides are what is perplexing and even more so the "spiral on the one side. You can see the "spiral" in the photographs. This may be something comman and not man made. Can anyone help me with identifying this? Is it Native American? Photo of the "back"
  15. Apologies for double post. I accidentally posted in the wrong forums. I found this tooth in the water on a small beach. Any help with identification would be appreciated. Happy to load more pics, if needed
  16. fossilized or petrified wood?

    Is this petrified or fossilized wood? found this one at my beach house home in Pacifica, CA. if it's either is there a difference between the two?
  17. Possible petrified apple

    This was found years ago by my mother in the Ozarks of Missouri in southeast Missouri, on the st. Francois river. Has been around me since I can remember. Any help would be appreciated.
  18. Is this petrified wood?

  19. Thinking bison tooth

    The larger one measures 2.5" long and 1.625" wide. The smaller one measures 1.5"X1.5". I found them separately on the same creek about 4-500 yards apart near Union Church Mississippi
  20. ID Petrified Wood

    HI, I´ll take this piece to the Houston Gem and Minera Society, to see if I can get more info.... I understand it was collected many years ago near Brownwood, TX. Can someone tell me what kind of wood it is? Thanks! Luis
  21. Any ideas?

    Hi all, Any ideas what this could be, I found a few similar ones amongst the seaweed on a rocky beach in the NE of England, and it seems like something has petrified, can provide more pics if necessary (defeated by the uploader limit). You can almost see scales on it and all the tubes look peculiar but fascinating. Size is roughly 8cm long Regards
