    What The Heck Is This?

    I found these 2 rocks in a bed of river rocks at an apartment complex in Denver Co. I found the biggest piece 1st and continued looking for more interesting rocks when I found the small piece. I was surprised that they fit together. The big piece weighs approximately 2 lbs and the small piece approximately 1/2 lb. If it's not a fossil then I need to know how it formed.

    Petrified finger?

    H i live in KY and was wondering if someone could please tell me if this is a petrified human finger or just a rock? I found it in the dirt when I was replacing my waterline. It feels weird and when its wet, it feels even weirder.
  6. Hi there! New member here. My meemaw just shared this item with me that was found near a creek bed behind her house (just north of San Antonio, Texas). Looks like it has some identifiable facial features, but it is awfully heavy. Thanks in advance for your help in soothing her curiosity! K

    Alaska ID Help

    Hi! My mom brought me this back from the Bristol Bay Area in Alaska, and wanted to know if it was some sort of whale bone, or just a funny shaped rock. Texture is fairly porous on the elongated portion and more dense on the bulbous bit. Found on a coastal beach on Bristol bay. Measures around 6.5 by 11cm at its widest point. Thank you for the help!

    Odd Ordovician rock

    Hey everyone, I just got into the hobby of fossil hunting so please excuse me if this is something obvious. I found this in a rock and I can't find anything quite like it. I live on the Georgian Bay Formation so from my research it should be from the Ordovician. The second pic is from the other side of the same rock, don't know if they're related. The picture doesn't capture it well, but there's a bit of perfect curvature that to my untrained eye looks organic. Any help in identification is appreciated.
  9. Hello, I found this on a beach along Croatian coast and was unlike any of the surrounding rocks/geology. It's symmetrical and submarine-shaped. I'm wondering if it's a fossil v. a natural formation. Any information is greatly appreciated!

    Animal or Rock?

    Hi, here's a real mystery, is this a fossil of a small animal or just a sandstone rock. I think is looks like a small alligator or a baby dinosaur but I'm no expert. Anyone have any idea what this is. I was sorting through a box of rocks and found this in it, I don't think anyone ever displayed except for me. I let my imagination take over and found space in my cabinet for the last 20 years. Thanks for looking Dignrocks
  11. Not sure if this rock is a fossil or unique mineral deposit that created uniform circles within the rock. My amateur guess would be maybe coral fossil?
  12. Hoping for help identifying and Also would appreciate thoughts on How should I clean it? Thank you 68309238386__A3797316-D417-45BB-AAE8-33025566C3BC.MOV

    Petrified wood ?

    Hello I just want to know if these two samples are petrified wood ? They are both from Bolivia . Pictures 1&2 are one sample front and back . Pictures 3&4 are another sample front and back .
  14. Hello, I’ve been to happisburgh beach today and I’ve possibly found a few fossils but I’m also pretty clueless. Would love some help. thank you
  15. Sorry but I am not geologist or have any background on fossils. I am an iNaturalist user, and a friend sent me some photos taken in a NW Spain beach asking me if it was a fossil. So I searched iNaturalist and found a topic which mentioned this was a good place to ask for fossil identifications. So here are the photos he sent me. The place is now covered by sand this year so I guess he cannot take close ups right now (just in case you ask). The 1 euro reference coin diameter is 23.25 mm (according to wikipedia). There is a "snake shaped" mark in the rock

    Weird rock or weird Fossil?

    Found in a creek in Floyd County Kentucky. Area is Pennsylvanian (according to the university of Kentucky website the area may also have a very small mix of Cretaceous, Tertiary and Quaternary). I'm wondering if this is a fossil, like an impression of a seed or something, or if this is just a weird rock. Thanks in advance.

    Alaska Fossil?

    Found this in Alaska along the Anchor River. Unsure if it is a fossilized anything? Almost looks like there are wing impressions on both sides of the narrow segments, which is about an inch long.
