    Is it real fossil or just a rock

    I have found this and i would like to know if it's a real fossil or just a rock.

    Missouri ordovician

    Yesterday I went to get my covid vaccine 4 hours from home near some fossil localities in Missouri that I have long wanted to explore. Unfortunately, pouring rain all day thwarted my plans, but I picked up a few things of interest. Anyway, I'm curious what this is. It almost looks like Styrofoam at first glance. Are these ooids or something else?
  3. Not sure where this came from exactly to begin with but I got it from a friend whose next door neighbor had passed away who used to be a geology teacher at a local school I guess his wife wanted the dirt and the rock pile gone so my friend needed the dirt and let me grab a bunch of the rocks. I no longer have this rock so have to go by memory, I gave it to my dentist because it resembled teeth and a small jaw bone when the top came off. The interesting thing is there was a hair imbedded in the rock where it fractured. It was not fractured when I got it and it was definitely part of the ro

    I think I found a fossilized bone

    Hello, yesterday I was on a trip and found a rock that I think is a fossilized bone. I know this rock doesn't look like much but please don't judge it too fast because if you look closely it kind of has the shape of a bone, I don't know if I managed to capture the shape of it in the pictures and to me it reminds the shape of a Homo sapiens shoulder. please tell me your thoughts and ideas
  7. Is this a skull of a baby raptor or is it just a rock? I just want to be sure before i take next step.
  8. found on gravelbar north of new orleans , any idea
  9. Hey all! So I found what appeared to be a large geode, but upon further investigation turned out to have 5 or 6 fossils imprints! They seem to be seashells, scallop-like so possibly bivalves or brachiopods. I'll attach the pre-cleaning pictures below, then some more later after I rinse it and dry it off. My big question is: since this thing definitely has fossils (I can see at least two are half buried in the stone matrix) and is very likely a geode (it's heavy, has dimples, and I can see shiny facets in a few of the dimples), what should be next step be? I wanted to crack it open al

    Rock id help

    San Antonio, Tx This rock doesn’t look like any of the chert or limestone I’ve found so far. Not sure what it is. It looks to be covered in iron. My hands don’t smell like a penny.

    Is this a Fossil?

  22. What causes certain pieces of chert to have a plastic look and texture after an acid test
  23. Vnaz50

    Chert coloring

    On this piece of chert it appears to have either an iron or copper coloring at the top but a green undertone at the bottom. On the second picture I’m assuming that was caused by erosion. What would create the green undertone coloring?
  24. I went to the aquatics shop this morning to buy some fish food. They were selling these rocks as decor. Person helping me had no idea re provenance. I think they are geologic in origin. But with the banding was thinking there is an outside chance they could be Stromatolites About hand size.

    Sediment with Rock on top

    Below is a piece of sediment that I pulled from my yard here in San Antonio, Tx. I’m just not 100% sure on what type of rock this is sitting on top of the sediment.
