  1. My brother collects rocks, I however do not. I was at a local auction and there were a number of neat rocks I purchased a bunch and turns out for the most part I did really well. However, this one neither of us knew about but given they came from a museum I was hopeful, the label reads “Petrified turtle eggs, sack of three eggs, Lamedeer, Montana.” I have a whole five bucks invested into it so it won’t hurt me if it’s just a rock.
  2. Was this rock underwater ?

    In our cottage in an island there are these big rocks that were dug up from the ground when we first built our house but there is one rock in particular that looks like it may have been underwater at some point and I sure am interested in the possibility of maybe finding some fossils, what's your opinion ?does it look like it may have been underwater? And could this area have fossils? Thanks
  3. Bone, branch or other

    Supposedly these came from the Missouri River valley in central South Dakota. One old timer says he was told they are petrified bones. They are very solid and high strength. Somewhat symmetrical on the longitudinal axis. Sandstone appearance on surface. What are these, any ideas?
  4. New item I found

    I found this in eastern tennessee along with many other itemts.
  5. Petrified bone?

    His all I found this what I assume is some sort of petrified bone. It is shiny and very hard, and seems mineralised. About 2.5cm long by about 2. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. I only joined the forum after finding this.
  6. Iron-Petrified Stick with Vines?

    While rockhounding in the area of the Niagara Penninsula, I found an odd-shaped piece of metal about 5 inches beneath very thick, wet mud. The place in which I found the object was in a very shallow stream, which ran over sedimentary rock of the pre-Cambrian shield. After a closer inspection at home, I believe I may have found an iron-mineralized piece of a petrified wood, intertwined with two separate vines. A friend suggested it may be a rusty drill bit although I have doubts based on the location it was found. It is 3 1/2" long and 3/4" wide. It is heavy and seems hard like a metal. It is somewhat magnetic. It appears mostly brown, with spots of orange, and some light brown mud residue. I am assuming the vibrant orange colour is rust although there are also pale-orange spots which resemble the interior of a stick. Before cleaning the specimen, I would appreciate any opinions/advice. I am only able to attach two photos, but I will upload the rest in the response section. Any help is much appreciated!

  14. Hello everyone! I have no experience with fossils whatsoever, but this looks like a fossil to me. It is very heavy and feels like a petrified bone / cartilage or shell of some kind. Very peculiar. What is it? I bought it in a second hand shop in Sweden. Thank you in advance!

  18. Petrified Wood Arizona Ranch

    Well hello everyone it’s been a while for me as it’s been a rough couple of months Traveling to be with my late Sister who battled to the end with Pancreatic Cancer. So I crossed off three of her bucket list adventures she wanted to do in our return trip to Texas. She wanted to find a Sharks Tooth, a snail ( Gastropoda) and dig for Crystals. Well as as I said we just got back from a two week stay on the west coast and the weather was not very good to us. But our first stop we had arranged to dig for Petrified Wood on the Dobell Ranch. Well when we got their to our surprise nobody was around and everything was closed up. So I called to ask what happened and the owner was very sorry as the Tucson Fossil and Minerals Show was in action and she had to delivery a tree they dugout a week ago and forgot about us. Well long story short she said no worries just go and start looking!!! So guess what we did!! i was looking for smaller pieces for my jewelry making and I found about 25 pounds of nice material. I also found some Rainbow petrified wood which made the trip worth it!! Pictures to follow as I have to crop them and cleanup the pictures to fit and download
