    And yet another oddity.....

    this one is really odd it is almost plant like in texture when viewed under microscope (pics included) the texture follows the curves of the fossil looking almost like hair under the microscope...sorry only way I could describe it .... It has a dark area along with what look like leafy or hairy parts on it.

    Fossil or not?

    Hi everyone, I am very new to this and have an extremely vivid imagination so please bear with me I found this piece of limestone in lighting ridge Australia and I can't help but see what looks to be a palm leaf shape imprinted into it and on closer examination it looks like a small feather imprint also. I hope my images are helpful. Ready to be told it's just a rock
  5. One is pyritized and I have no clue what it is. The other I’m thinking is a plant? Found alongside loads of crinoids

    Help with ID

    Hello. My family found this on the beach in southern Oregon. We’re wondering what this fossil might be? It has texture to it that you can feel. And it’s pretty, my daughter described it as being lacy, almost like crochet stitches.

    Pyrite dimples with fossilised wood

    Another find from Saltwick Bay, this time very recent. I'm guessing that the main chunk is fossilised wood of some sort, but I'm stumped by the small (~1cm diameter) patch of pyrite that exhibits very regular dimples (see images 1 & 2). Any ideas?

    Need help to identify fossil

    Found this in near a cliff side in NSW, Australia in shale rock, have tried to identify it but have had trouble, so was seeing if anyone could help in anyway. Thanks.

    Marine fossil ID

    We were walking along the beach to the north shore light house on block island (part of Rhode Island). I picked up several really cool rocks but this one is the best. I think it is a plant fossil but could not find anything close online. It also has sparkly metallic or crystal content throughout. Any ideas what this is?
  11. Hi all! I found this rock with many fairly well preserved plant fossils in it. It's from the Kvamshest-basin in western Norway, deposited about 380 ish Mya. Does anyone here know what kind of plants they are?

    Identification needed

    On the large rock, the fourth picture jpg 142641 has gash marks, equal size, there are also depression around each gash mark. I am new to this stuff, but with all my searching I have yet to come up with a answer. Is is a fossil organ with claw marks? The outer and inner appearance are unlike rocks I have seen. My last rock (rectangular) I also have not had any luck with identification. The big rock was found in southeast Idaho, the rectangular rock was found in Succor Creek. I am guessing a plant but would love some feedback! Thank you!

    Criss cross lined fossil?

    Found this on the beach in Lewes, DE. It's 3cm long, 0.5cm thick and 2cm at the wider end. The lines are raised. Curious if it is some sort of plant fossil. Thanks for any help in identifying!

    Radius lined fossil?

    My son found this on the beach in Lewes, Delaware. It is a little over 1.5 cm long and 1 cm both wide and deep. Maybe it's a cool rock but it sort of seems shell like on the side. Appreciate any help!

    Unknown WV fossil

    Heres something I found yesterday in a Creek bed at the bottom of Kate's Mountain, in Harts Run which is located in Greenbrier County, West Virginia. Found lots of crinoid columnals, and brachiopod fossils as well, thanks in advance for any information! I apologize for my fossil ignorance but I am having such a great time finding them and learning!

    Unknown Mazon Creek Fossil

    A specimen from the 1970's or 1980's, but unfortunately date and specific locality are lost to the ravages of mind.... I would appreciate any help in un-Insertae sedising this one! The light blue grid is one inch.

    Tiny plant?

    Hi everybody Last day I found this tiny fossil (just 8mm...) In the coal measures. Probable it's a plant, but I wanted to make sure. Sorry about the quality. What dou you think? Thanks for your help and stay safe
  19. Hello, I found this fossil last spring break, in Coahuila, Mexico. It comes from the late Campanian (73-71 Myrs) Cerro del Pueblo formation. I found several fossils at the same location where I found this fossil. Some of the fossils I found include Cerithium snails, several species of Physidae freshwater snails, Inoceramus sp., petrified wood with teredolites, ammonite fragments, a caudal vertebra from a Hadrosaurid, and plenty of dinosaur bone fragments. The formation is a mess, it’s composed of layers that were deposited in marine, and terrestrial environments, as well as rivers and possibly

    Heirloom Fossils Identification Help

    These have been passed down from parent to child for generations. Anyway we can no longer remember what these were originally identified as. Possible plants? I see rings and some spots where it looks like a branch would’ve grown.

    Plant? shell? or mineral?

    Found North of Houston Texas USA in gravel load from Brazos River at first glance it seems to be a shell like pattern on the stone {why I picked it up} but the pattern seems to be the whole stone so thought perhaps compressed fossilized plant concretion? possible fossil wood? pulled out my macro camera and studied further....now I am stumped more photos to follow.....
