  1. Englewood Beach Rock or Bone?

    I found this tumbled rock or bone on Englewood Beach, Florida. It looked different than most of the oval pieces of whale bone I've found. It is very smooth on the darker side and rougher crystalline on the flip side. It measures about 1" at it's widest points. Any Ideas? Thanks for all replies!
  2. Fossil or rock?

    Please excuse my photography this was the hardest thing ive had to take pictures of wondering what this might be, thought it looked cool
  3. White Rock

    Can anyone let me know which type of rock this is? It is white with tan specks (possibly a type of tiny fossil?) stuck all over it. I found it in my yard in middle Tennessee. Thanks!
  4. Fossil or not?

    I found a piece of gravel today that looked very different from the rest. Is it a fossil or is it just weathered granite? Thanks everyone!

    Can anyone tell me which type(s) of rock this is? I found it in a creek in middle Tennessee. Thanks!
  7. I have been wondering if the black things on the side of this rock could be some type of fossil? Is it a type of fossilized plant material? Thanks!
  8. Preparing fossils

    I have never attempted to remove a fossil from rock. I don't have any tools, so I am looking to invest in tools needed. What's the best way to extract the fossil??
  9. Is this a bone?

    This was found on my property in middle Tennessee. I have always wondered if it was once used as some type of tool, or if it is just an odd shaped rock. Now that I have cleaned it a bit, it looks like it could possibly be bone. Can anyone tell me what it is? Thanks!

  12. Anyone Know What This is

    Found this in a dry creek bed and Im not sure what it is..Any ideas? Thanks
  13. Opalization?

    I was wondering a few things about opals effect on fossils and bones in general. 1) does it degrade the value? 2) how long does it take? 3)how does it work? 4) would I be able to do it to some spare animal teeth? (Hope that’s not weird haha)
  14. This was found in a pile of old stones near my home (countryside of western New York State not that far from the shores of Lake Ontario.) the rocks were delivered to put down in a stone driveway and I happened to stumble across this a year or so ago. I would love to know what it is/was.
  15. I have some really worn pieces that look like bone, but some people say they are just rock. Anyway to get a positive ID?
  16. Found this in Syracuse, NY

    I'm sorry my first post must be a fossil ID question, but this perplexes me. Found this in Syracuse, NY today. It looks man made, but at the same time. It's built into the rock. TY in advance!!.
  17. Help with fossil ID

    Will someone help me ID this specimen, it was found somewhere in Rockport Texas. Thanks y’all!
  18. Imprint found

    Hi, I'm new here and just wondered if anyone has an idea of what this is? I have no knowledge in this field as this is not my area of science. I just thought it would be interesting to find out what I have stumbled upon. Thank you in advance.
  19. What is this?

    Hello all, I'm once again asking for help in identifying an object I found. I have no idea what this is, it was found in Buchanan county Iowa, in an old quarry exposing Devonian aged material. It seems to have quartz on the bottom side (as far as I'm able to tell but I still have a lot to learn about rocks). It almost resembles shell material to me but maybe it's some kind of concretion or something. Hopefully someone has seen something like this, thanks for your help and time!
  20. I found this in NY and polished it not realizing it was something other than a normal rock. It broke in half. It is 1" x 2". What on Earth is this?
  21. Fossil or Just Another Rock?

    Hello everyone I have here a specimen and can’t figure out if it’s just a plain ol’rock but I think it might not be a rock at all. This specimen weighs almost 5lbs it’s original location was found in Carrizo Springs Texas at a drilling rig location. Some helpful info and opinions about what this specimen could be would really be great -Thanks y’all!
  22. Fossil ID Help.

    Hello, I found this today in a creek bottom in SE Montana. Any ID help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  23. Tooth or Concretion

    Information: Squares in the background are 1/2 CM. (object is roughly 2.25X1.25X0.5 CM) (length-width-thickness) Unfortunately I don't think location information will be much use here but: Found in western Montana (United States)(near Great Falls) in a graveled driveway. No idea where it might be from, or if it was already here before the driveway. I'd be more than happy to provide more pictures/angles if it'll help. My little auto-adjusting light was being extremely temperamental with these pictures for some reason.. they are a fair bit darker than the object actually appears in-hand. The inner "tooth" is nearly pure black. I thought when I first picked it up that it was a tooth of some sort.. but the more I look at it, the more I'm thinking some sort of concretion. I don't claim to have any experience whatsoever with fossils, so I could easily be wildly wrong. Any of you more experienced folks recognize it? As a side note, if it does turn out something other than a normal rock, would I want to try to remove it from the other material? Any recommendations on doing so safely?
  24. stone encased in a rock?

    My dad found this a long time ago somewhere in the Uk , he doesnt remember where, and cause you guys are awesome at this could someone identify it please
  25. Fossilized nut? Or just rock.

    I was looking for fossils around a bunch of small rocks and came across this, it was heavier than the other rocks and seems to have a “soft” feel and not hard and scatchy. Any info is appreciated
