    Fossil or not?

    Hi forum, sorry it's me again I was in omhden (DE) about 4 months ago and among the already digged and cracked stones i've found this strange speciment. It's a complete flat surface, very regular with a strange spoon-shaped prominence in the middle. It looks also like it has a scale-shape lucid black piece next to him. I thought this was enough to take it, also considering that i'm not an expert and i know i can ignore a ton of unprepped super pieces also if i grab them by my hands. I don't have any idea if this is just a blank rock or it can hide something good. I need

    Is this a fossil?

    I was given this rock from my grandma and have no idea if it is a fossil or not. If it is what it is and how old? Thank you all in advance.

    Is this a rock or fossil

    We were digging a trench and came across some fossilized coral while digging around there we found this laying in the side of the bank. Is this just a rock, or maybe even a claw

    Possible fossil??

    Hi there. My son found this rock and he search it on a Rock Identifier app and said it may be a fossil. It kind of looks like it on the exterior. The rock has broken into peace’s and now he only conserves 3 of them. What looks odd to me is the interior , sounds like a rock though. Hope for some help.
  7. Could not identify these little pieces myself. Obviously 1 is more of a weird type of rock formation, but I was wondering if anyone knew why it looked like it was made of all those little capsules. 2 is most interesting to me, I honestly have no idea. 3 seems to maybe be a pieces of sediment that got something pressed into it and it hardened as a print? Not sure.

    Help Id'ing Creek Fossil

    Hello Gentlemen, I'm looking for a little help with an ID. I'm 48 and a Kentucky boy. This week I started browsing some creeks looking for arrowheads, it's something I have never done and just wanted to try. I ran into this rock with an organized pattern on it.....appears to be something that is fossil-ish to me. However I don't know much about fossils so you guys see what you think. Thanks for looking, -Aaron

    Rock or Bone

    Any idea how this was formed? was it a rock that had lava flow cover it? That’s what I thought at first. the shape on one side almost looks like a mold. Did the lick test and tongue stuck to the wishbone looking part. Can this be a bone? Any thoughts ? this was found in Northeast Kansas near an area we found some Crinoid and fusulinid fossils.

    Various finds today.

    Back in the creek today, found a few things that could be something.

    Fossil Hash Shells?

    From time to time, I find these rocks in the river that look like they have many small shells and fragments embedded in them. Unfortunately, mostly what I know is Pleistocene, so it's hard for me to make anything out of them. This one I found a couple of weeks ago seemed particularly busy. Would love it if someone could tell me more. @JohnJ @Jared C

    Rock or petrified toe???

    My dad found this rock in the Vermillion River in Illinois last weekend during a camping trip. While my dad insists it's a petrified toe or a toe that was possibly covered in mud then compressed (or something of the like???? I'm not quite sure...), I personally think it's just a rock. Can someone please help officially determine what exactly it is? Thank you! -Abby

    shark tooth or rock??

    Hi! So I know absolutely nothing about fossils, but my dad and I were looking for shark teeth at Fossil Beach in Westmoreland State Park yesterday, and we came up empty handed except for this weird looking rock. At first we thought it was just a rock in the general shape of a shark tooth, but upon closer inspection we noticed that it looks glossy and about the right color in a few spots (especially on one side) and there are some lines in the rock that look sharktooth-esque. It has holes in the top and on the side that are each about a centimeter deep, so we were wondering if it were possible

    Odd thin rock. Fossil?

    Hi everyone, I forgot to post this in another post where I asked for a fossil ID. I am posting it now. The last time I went out looking for fossils, I went to a travertine deposit in the canyon near Twin Falls, Idaho. I found an odd rock that looked like a carrot. I also found this there. It’s extremely thin, maybe about 1 to 2 mm thin. I have no idea what it is, or if it’s even a fossil or not. If it is a fossil, what is it? If it’s not a fossil, then I really need to do research and find a new place to look around. I haven’t found any i
  16. Hi members, Land is being dug and flattened next to my house in Sydney, so thought would take a stroll and see if I get lucky, found this rock and pressed against the layer by hand and this layer easily seperated, seems like it has something but may not be a good example, still wanted to share, thoughts?

    Possible fossil? Not sure

    Found in North Wales, Bangor middle beach area (partially wet). Not sure if it's even a fossil.

    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?

    Is this poop what I have?

    Good afternoon! I am curious if anyone can tell me what this is? Found on Folly Beach in Charleston. Thanks!

    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?

    Rocks or something else?

    Hi, Are these 3 iron concretions or something else? Found in Monmouth county area

    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.
