    Help ID Please

    Everytime I think I find a fossil, I'm wrong. But I try! Clearly I'm new at this.

    Unknown Object

    Found this rock with something eroding on it but am unsure what it could be and it is not magnetic. Unsure if it's any sort of fossil but any help would be great.

    Fossil egg?

    Is this a Fossil? Petrified egg perhaps? Or just a unique Rock?

    Curious little tooth shape

    Here's something I've been trying to ID for a while. At first I thought it was a conodont, but all my research has so far indicated that it's too big to be one, and I don't really know what else it could be, or if it's even a fossil at all. Any input is highly appreciated

    Coprolite or Iron Concretions?

    Hi, Any thoughts on these three? Found in Big Brook, Monmouth county NJ. They were not together. Don't appear they are from a fire. The area has tons of iron concretions, but these seemed to stick out differently. Any thoughts if they may be coprolite?

    Help id fossil

    Hello everyone, this my 1st entry is to find some help to identify if these are fossils since I'm new in this world of fossils & rocks. I live in the island of Puerto Rico in the Caribbean and I've seen corals and reefs and these specimens looks like some wich I've seen. Both have cristal or quartz like features all over and the hardness is like that of quartz. One is like cramy orange in color and the other is like ivory or cream in color. But the last one is totally different because there are a ring of quartz bits on top of that sedimentary rock like shown in the last photos.

    any idea what this is

    any idea on this one found on a gravel bar one hour north of new Orleans , thanks for your time IMG_1598.MOV

    Petrified finger?

    Hey all. I recently came back from visiting my mamaw in corbin ky. I stopped at a vendors market and bought a random bag marked jewelry Making. This was random junk thrown in a ziplock. This booth was very vintage and antique with a lot of random and strange things. Sooo question is what in the world is this. Not sure if my mind is messing with me but I can't seem to hold it without feeling weird haha. So feels petrified or rock like but shapped like my stubby finger... I don't know much about this stuff so I figured I would find a forum to tell me if it's rock, finger, or even animal drops

    Is this a fossil?

    Hi there, This is my first forum post, I'm UK based in the South West. About 6 months to a year ago I visited Charmouth in Dorset and ended up coming home with this particular rock. I've always wondered if the structures breaking the surface were fossils or instead natural geological features. Any ideas? Thanks

    striped shape on rock

    Hi Forum, i'd like to know what is or what caused this striped part of this rock and the little dotted part on the top. I collected it in the Omhden quarry (Germany, next to Holzmaden) the length of the striped part is about 5cm while the max length of the rock is 17cm Thanks a lot Paolo
  16. Hello there everyone! I found this in North Myrtle Beach, any ideas as to what it is? It's got some porous parts which make me think bone but I have no clue. Thanks in advance for any information!

    Rock or fossil! You be the judge

    Hello there! Found this in North Myrtle beach and can't quite put my finger on what it could be. Interesting pieces once you look closely, I'd love anyone's take on this! Thanks in advance for any information.

    Just a rock?

    Was very curious as to how this one came to look as it does. Any help is appreciated. Some of the photos are before and after a good cleaning.

    Jalama "Rossil"

    Greetings all. In the spirit of tricks and treats today, I figured I'd post a slightly disingenuous ID question. Or maybe someone will surprise me and tell me that it actually is a fossil, rather than a "rossil". I'm not holding my breath. I was camping at Jalama last week, when it was pushing 90 degrees on the beach. It was a pleasant couple of days but the weather made it less so than one would expect. I did end up breaking up a few cleavable pieces that came from a fresh fall at the back of the closest cliff to the South side of the campground, but found nothing. And

    ID egg shaped rock

    Hi, I am new to the site. I have had this rock for 50 years. I would love to know what it is and how it was made. I don't remember much about the details on getting it. The kid I got it from lived in Virginia. I always thought it was a petrified egg. Some of the people I shown it to say it was just a stone in flowing water for a long time. A tool for native Americans to make paint, or a heating stone for native Americans to heat water. I have had it x-rayed, with no results. I would really appreciate anyone who can tell me about it or where I can get it tested without d
  23. I found more of this rock, found at Anyer beach, Indonesia
