  1. Hi guys! I am looking for new areas to hunt for rocks and fossils around the KC area. I have been to the Blue river, Kansas river, Cedar creek, Tuttle creek, Perry Lake, Mill creek, and abandoned quarry areas. Anyone have any general locations of where I can find some stuff? I am an avid hunter for all sorts of fossils and rocks (rockhounding is my favorite past time)! I've had the most luck at the Kansas river and Perry lake. Some of my finds include cow skulls, cone coral, shells, agates, vertebrae, and a bunch of druzy quartz geodes and chalcedony. I ha

    Rock Hunting Franklin NC

    Hey Fam! Going to be in Franklin, NC for a few days in October. I’m fixin to do as much rockhounding as possible which I believe goes without saying. I’m looking for resources in the form of Areas where I can sift, walk river banks and what mines (I probably only want to spend money on one) are worth the time devotion to. My parent’s place is on a mountain which is full of creeks. Am I bound to find some neat stuff just hopping from one to another? What can I expect? Any information is greatly appreciated!!! Edit: I grabbed a UV light off Amazon because I’m told Rubi

    Quartz Snail (Gastropod) Fossil?

    It's been a while since I have been on here. Life got in the way of me looking for rocks and fossils. The property that I have access to hunt in has several seasonal creeks on it. This was found in a dry creek bed. I didn't think a lot about it as these type of "snail" fossils are the main thing that I find. When looking at it closer at home, I realized that the fossil itself seems to be replaced with quartz? The surface has been worn down by weathering and by the creek flow during the spring. I am not sure that the images convey the crystal properly, but the clear, crystal structure is

    Potentially Petrified Wood

    Hello all! I am a new member, and this is my first post. Could I please have some help figuring out if these rocks are petrified wood? Most of them were found in a small Pennsylvanian stream. It looks like they are quartz, crystal quartz, but I am no expert. There should be about two pictures of each rock. Thanks for your help, and I have more pictures of different rocks if needed.
  7. Here I am again, with questions on another rock! I can recognize more and more fossils and rocks, but I love finding things I don't recognize. :-) This limestone rock, found in Huntsville, AL, as a portion that has a lot of quartz in it, and a lot of tunnels and crevices. I recognize the crinoid fossils but am not sure about some of the other ones. I have put questions marks on the areas I am wondering about, and asked a question in one image. It also almost looks like there are areas where geods were trying to form, but that may just be due to all of the quartz. Help appreciated!

    Petrified wood that burned?

    Here is another one of my finds. I was out on a Hunting trip in the Rocky Mountain range and stumbled upon this beauty in the middle of a recent burn area. This was a piece that was a part of a much larger rock. It was mixed with quartz crystal. I was lucky to find a piece broken off. The piece I have is about the size of a small bowling ball. My thoughts are burned petrified wood. The black is almost like black quartz embedded in other rock.

    Quartz on fossil bone?

    This weekend as I was out rockhounding for quartz crystals I found this interesting piece. It looks very much like bone to me. Any insight or information would be appreciated. I will add more pics in the comment section. Thank you!

    Quartz fossil

    Hi, I found some interesting rocks in some gravel near downtown Indianapolis. Photo with the ruler is in inches, sorry to the rest of the world. Thanks in advance!
  13. Sometimes, when you go on a fossil hunt, you find more than just fossils. Some friends and I traveled to southeastern Iowa in Spring '18 to scour the Mississippian for fossils, but while there, we noticed that many of the homes that we drove by sported geodes in their front yards. Intrigued, we decided to investigate for ourselves. As it turns out, the area is well-known for its geodes (Iowa's state rock is the geode), so we promptly decided that we had to collect some for ourselves. We eventually found a privately owned piece of property where we could fill a bucket with geodes fo
  14. After putting my fossils in vinegar to remove the limestone, I have found they are all diamond-like with great detail. I think it is quartz. Is this normal? This is mid-devonian coral. Thanks for your help!

    Beach agate, possible bivalve?

    I found this on a rocky beach in West Seattle. Looks to be pretty transparent with a bit of banding. I assume it's just geological, but based on the size and shape I guess it could maybe be a bivalve fossil? SG is 2.61

    Small wormlike fossils in hard mineral

    I'm still brand new here, and hoping that help from the ID posts will get me moving in the right direction. We have so many fossils here in Cincinnati and the outlying regions.. Thank you for helping!
  18. Hi. I know that the one side is amethyst in the picture, but on the other side looks like smoky quartz with a vein of quartz in the middle. Clear to dark gray in color. Any info would help. Thanks

    Shocked or Tectonic?

    Something keeps telling me to look further, but I believe this is part of answering how big of an event happened here. This stone was pulled from a vein that was sandwiched in a softer than limestone but more like granite. Sorry no picture of that. I was intrigued by the crystal structure of the crystals that had been knocked free by free range cattle and deer. My first thoughts were of petrified wood since it's literally just about everywhere if you look. But I could not figure out in the world a piece of wood might petrify, #1 clear #2 with opposing angles. These pieces did not seem to fit w

    Beach Pebble with Fossil Imprints?

    Happy Friday! I found this very unique pebble on Casey Key Beach, Florida. It is about a 1/2"x 3/4". It has a tusk shell shape on one side and a triangular shape on the other; looking like something was replaced with quartz crystals. Does anyone know what made these impressions? Is this considered a fossil? Thanks all.
  21. Found these flat orage/red rock pieces just outside Kodachrome state Park on a ridge near Chimney Rock. Flat pieces, with the orange swirled fingerprint like texture on both sides and milky clear quartz layer like a Geode in middle layer. Any ideas what makes a pattern like that?

    Fossilized Wood?

    This looks very much like fossilized wood with quartz, just looking for a yes or a throw it back. I'm sure it came from a Texas quarry, but I have no idea where in Texas.

    Can anyone else see the leaves?

    I have shown many people these... I believe they are leaves... Can anyone else see the overlapped leaves? Or negative images... Not your typical leaf fossil I know... Curious if anyone else can see it....
