    Found in Northern VA on Potomac River. Black rock that looks like petrified wood.
  2. Hello to all. Although I exhibited this sample in the next topic, I think that it is worthy of a separate publication. For all the time of my finds, I came across such a sample for the first time. It is a long branch (about 80 cm) with a large knot in the middle. I had to tinker, extracting it from the red clay. It originates from the Araukarite Formation of the Gzhel Stage of the Upper Pennsylvania Carboniferous period (303.4 Ma). Found in the Donetsk region of Ukraine.
  3. Hello to all. This is my collection of flora from the Carboniferous period. This topic will be filled gradually - there is a lot of material. All material originates from the Araukarite Formation of the Gzhel Stage of the Upper Pennsylvania Carboniferous period (303.4 Ma). Unless otherwise specified, it means that the default sample is from this formation. The type of substitution is silicification (sometimes with ferruginization), sometimes with quartz crystals on the surface of the samples. Enjoy watching Part 1. Sample 1. Part of a branch of small diameter with a

    Paleocene petrified wood?

    I found this piece at Douglas Point on the Potomac a while back. I set it aside for a snowy day not sure if it was bone or something else. Definitely fossilized, but a little weird for bone. Taking a closer look today at the recently broken end, I think I see growth rings. And maybe thin bark on the outside? Is this petrified wood? If so, it would be a first for me from there.

    bone or petrified wood?

    Greetings from Central Florida, friends. I found this piece today and I assumed it was bone because I find so many smaller, similar looking pieces of bone at this spot. On closer examination, one side seems to be cut pretty neatly. Can anyone positively identify this as bone or wood? If wood, is it palm? Thanks for reading!

    Is this fossilized bone?

    This was found in a cave in Vance. It has a mineral growth on it that glows a neon yellow color under a uv light. The camera makes it appear green but here are some photos. Tell me what y'all think.

    Petrified tooth identification

    I was wondering if somebody could help me identify this tooth found on the Nueces River in Southwest Texas.

    Cone for ID

    Tooth tusk bone wood?

    I have had this for six months cant figure out what it is i need help please.

    Is this a petrified bone?

    I found this today near a creek bed and it has a bone appearance with sockets. Can anybody identify this?
  11. Hello! I inherited this piece with the idea that it could possibly be a space rock. I checked the magnetism and it has no magnetic properties whatsoever. After closer examination with an open mind and a little imagination, I see a petrified baby dinosaur laid on its side with its neck possibly broken at the base of the skull. Below what looks like the neck is a split section that looks like a chest cavity with a arm/leg on either side. . The strangest part is that there seems to be the head of another species resting on the side of the laid do

    Turtle Head ?

    I found this here in Las Vegas, it looks to be a turtle head. I'm using a Chromebook for the pictures and unfortunately I don't have any other options to take pictures right now but there is faint yellow line surrounding the gums going around the eye. the same yellowish color appears around a kidney shape near the back of the head and seems to be in the same area the otic chamber is on turtles. on one side of the head it appears to have teeth marks which I have found on other "turtle" pieces in this same area. I've also found what appear to be turtle or reptilian eggs. on one I sanded the "eg

    Petrified wood or rock?

    Found in NE colorado near an eroded stream bed. About 3 inches long.

    Bone, branch, root or other?

    Found this on 11/11/21 hiking near the shore of Lake Camanche in Amador County, CA. Camanche is a reservoir fed by the Mokelumne River and is pretty low this year, exposing some good rock hunting spots. Last year a ranger with EBMUD discovered fossils of mastodon, camel, horse and more in this watershed. We found lots of petrified wood and this one item that to me looks like a tibia or fibula because of the ridges that slowly spiral around it. All of the petrified wood was much lighter on the outside I believe from calcite. This item didn't have any of that on the outside, was much darker
  15. I think an extremely rare finding and I look forward to hearing your information. Thanks !
  16. Help with finding out the value how old it is the blue stuff on the petrified Wood is spray paint it was given to me like that.

    Is This Petrified Wood?

    I found this mystery rock on a lake shore in central Minnesota. Is it petrified wood? How does one tell whether or not a rock is petrified wood? Thanks for the help!

    Fossil? Petrified dino head?

    Interested in what this might be. Found in Hot Springs, Arkansas.

    Is this a petrified mushroom cap?

    I found this in in. Grove heights , MN. Where a huge amount of land was dug up and now is a construction site. I found it right after the ground was initially turned up . I believe it may of been old farm land or just unused land prior to the dig.
  21. found this in the same creek as my giant petrified burl. Finding things in this creek that don't just crumble is rare. The land I live on is very strange with deep deep slopes and high drop offs in the woods. I recently learned a glacier carved out the land here so thats interesting and explains alot. Can anyone give me their opinions on this peice? It sounds like glass if that helps. Thanks!

    Petrified Wood

    Not sure if this is the right spot for this topic. Found this over the summer here in Iron Co. Missouri while at the creek. Pretty sure it's a chunk of petrified wood. Just wanted to ask you all & make sure. Sorry again, it's 5"x1"x1"
  23. Hello. I offer for trade fragments of petrified wood of the Carboniferous period with crystals of smoky quartz. Some samples are in the photographs (I did not upload all the samples I have, since there are quite a few of them - of different sizes and qualities, as well as the sizes of the crystals themselves. I think we can agree on what specifically interests you - I have no doubt that I will find the sample you need). The origin of this wood is Ukraine, its age is Carbon. I'm interested in marine reptiles and petrified wood. Thank you. Have a nice day
