  1. Hi I have had this.....something since I was 7 when I found it in a peice of rotten wood. To me it looks like some sort of Tooth or possibly a Arrowhead, it is All wood but I really don't think it is just Nothing it is very interesting please let me know your thoughts (sorry pics are to big to upload so I have yo post the links here) http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=2aig176&s=8#.VHQn98so7qA http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=2iav30p&s=8#.VHQojcso7qA http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=280mxki&s=8#.VHQpD8so7qA
  2. I looks real, but you can't start a camp fire with this. The species is unknown, but I like to imagine perfect pigmentary replacement.
  3. My display drawer

    From the album My fossils collection

    Here are some of my fossils...
  4. I Think I May Have Found A Petrified Bone!

    I live in Maine. I was walking by a small river and saw something that looked like a bone. So I picked it up. It was heavier than rock should be. There was also a larger rock that was up river and it had odd indentations on it. The larger rock was probly 2x2 feet . It almost looked like someone might have used it to ground grains of some sort on it.I wish I had gotten pictures of the larger rock. I am wondering if I did find a petrified bone and if maybe it was used as a tool to hammer or grind things many later on?
  5. Is This A Petrified Bird Breast?

  6. Petrified Wood?

    Hey everyone! It's good to be back on the forums i missed you all. today i have some pictures of these two cool pieces i found on one of my adventures through an austin chalk layer here in texas. In my opinion, the surfaces of these specimens look almost like bark which led me to suspicion that perhaps these are pieces of petrified wood that have a quartz buildup in them? Since i'm still a novice i would LOVE to see what all the veterans think about what these pieces could be. I look forward to your feedback guys and thanks for looking!
  7. Ontario And Some Petrified Wood?

    Hello, I guess I'm not really sure what kind of info I can get from this, but I was hoping to determine what location this specimen might have been collected... I picked this specimen of petrified wood up at a pawn shop in Guelph. The employee said it had been in the shop for over 12 years, and the tag said 'found in Guelph, Ontario'. Whether this is accurate or not I don't know and I can't seem to find anything similar to it. It appears there are even 'sap' deposits that mineralized differently than the rest and there is significant crystallization over the whole surface of the specimen. Any information or direction would be greatly appreciated. Side A: Side B: Thanks!
  8. Hey guys, My grandfather had a large collection of fossils, rocks, and minerals and he has become more focused on his civil war button collection and has put the other collections to the wayside. The majority of these collections have ended up at my house and being a collector myself i find it very interesting. I'm new to fossils though and am just starting to go through them and organize (everything is sort of jumbled together) the stuff. Im starting with bone because it seems to be the smallest portion of the whole collection. But im having trouble distinguishing between the bone, some of the smaller petrified (or fossilized, i dont really know the difference) wood pieces. and also he has a lot of fossilized sharks teeth and stuff and am thinking i might be classifying some of the less obvious teeth as simply bone. Also is there ways of classifying different types of bone? Any information on any of these topics would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot, Ben Dillenbeck Also if anyone knows of good crystal/rock/mineral forums i would love to know about them also
  9. Hello, I live on the Clackamas River near Oregon City, OR, USA. There are some really neat things that wash up on the shore but this one grabbed my eye. I have no knowledge of fossils or bones but that is why I am here, seeking help in identification. I found it along the bank of the river, just laying there, did not have to dig it out or anything. The curvature, proportion and internal structures of this object did not necessarily look like wood to me so I am wondering if this is in fact some sort of tusk or tooth and if so, what animal it may be from? I have tried to provide some clear, informative pictures to give an idea of the size and features of interest. Thanks in advance for your help!
  10. Petrified Wood?

    I wasn't sure if this thing could be a piece of petrified wood or just a weird looking geofact. The concentric rings visible in the first photo below reminded me of growth rings. Found in southern CA near the CA/NV border.
  11. Is This Just A Cow Vertebra ?

    I found this yesterday along a river in NW Missouri. I know that river locations can make fossilization/petrification occur faster. I am on the fence about this one. Not sure how old it is. My dad says it looks like a cow vertebra, which I think is possible since the river is on farm land. What do you think it is? Any help is appreciated! Thank you! http://photobucket.com/koscojo P.S. Don't be angry I linked the pictures because I tried to attach them, but they were too large. Sorry.
