  1. Is it fossil or rock?

    Hi all! I am completely new to fossil collection, and have started it only because I had an assignment for a class. Now, however,after visiting couple of fossil sites and getting pictures of what I found, I got excited and curious. I searched internet but only get lost. So my main question is whether at least one of my finds is a fossil, or all of them are rocks? Pictures and information about location below. 1. Alki Point, Seattle. Found it in a shale. About 3 cm long 2. Alki Point, Seattle. Found it in shale. White rings in shale about 3 mm in diameter: 3. West coast of Olympic Peninsula,WA found it on the beach near Cape Alava 4 cm wide, 2.5 high 4. Find it near Clallam Bay, WA. 6 cm long, 3 high
  2. Fossils or just rocks

    Not sure what I found.
  3. Found these all laying around the same area by an old creek flowing from the mountains into the Yukon River, Alaska! it was like a nest of them! Lots of round rocks near this creek as well, then angles bedrock surrounding this creek area...the rounder ones are very heavy! Working on better pictures with a scale, weight, etc for identification.... in the upper left hand corner by the hand, the larger dark rock has 'rib' markings as well as the rock below it...then the small rock in the left upper corner by the hand seems to be fossilized bone or tusk... then the smallest round rock in the upper right corner is a smaller version of the larger.... the cross section of the broken one seems to have an outer shell of 1/4" thick shell, BUT..... and there are mineralized deposits on the outside as well as in the cracks of a couple of these...the 'broken' rock in the bottom left is a good example of the mineralization (I'm a sped teacher!, so don't take me to task for my lack of knowledge and terms!) BUT, these will look cool in my sauna!!!! The heavy ones are like cannon balls!
  4. What fossil is this?

    I found this while fishing on the beach if a cove in Massachusetts. It was below a huge rock cliff. Other fossils have been found in the same cove. I don't know what kind of rock the cliff is but this was certainly way different.
  5. i’m pretty sure this is just a cool rock but if any of you think it’s of biological origin... one can only hope!!
  6. Nice crab

    Thanks so much to @steelhead9 for preparing this crab for me, I thought his work was so good that I’d share it with everyone some of the legs are restored and it’s a puliarus vulgaris from washington
  7. Sphere Rock

    What is this? Perfectly round. Thanks
  8. Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum and fossil hunt. I found a fossil in Toronto area near a road construction site. It looks like some kind of insect. May I ask if someone could identify the ID of this fossil for me please? Thank you very much!
  9. Cannot ID what this is

    Hi. I found this in Washington State and I have no idea what this is.
  10. Stromatolite? Indian Tool?

    Is this a stromatolite? Or an indian tool?
  11. Fossil or Rock

    I came across this recently. Looks kind of interesting. I cannot tell if its quartz or what. It is hard. Any chance it could be a fossil?
  12. I am looking into buying one of these parts of a mosasaur jaw and wanted to make sure there real. I believe there is, but getting a second opinion always helps.
  13. I do not have a lot of experience buying insect fossils and was wondering if this ancestor to the modern dragonfly fossil is real?
  14. Hello I am new to this site and was wondering if anyone could help me identify what this is. While on vacation in Myrtle Beach,SC my 2 year old son found this.We were just walking higher up on the beach and he picked it up. Thanks for help. .
  15. I am looking into buying the fossil shown below and I was wondering if any one can tell if it’s real or fake. I am leaning more towards real, but I would enjoy some second opinions.
  16. Gifted Fossils from South America

    Good Day! These fossils were a gift from a friend in the early 1980's. He was a world traveler and brought them to my family from South America. He has since passed so I can't ask him specifics. Clearly they are fish fossils, but that is all I can derive as a layperson. Are there other things that a more skilled person in the field could relay about them? Thank you for the information. The sizes are on the photos: The larger piece is 14.5 x 4.25 x 4 inches The smaller piece is 5.25 x 6.5 x 3.5 inches They are very heavy.
  17. Interesting fossil/rock

    Hi folks. Found a rock in our pasture, and am wondering about the imprint on the side. A search turned up this forum, and I thought it might interest some of you. I attached 3 pictures. After reading your guidelines I see that it suggests pics from 6 different angles, measurements, etc. At this point I don't have those. If you want them I'll get them over the next few days. The first pic shows my Wife holding the rock. I figured that gives a reasonable sense of scale. The following 2 pictures are of course closer views. The rock was found on a steep hillside in a pasture in Illinois. About 70 miles NE of St. Louis. I assume it was uncovered by erosion. Our soil is not rocky, but rocks of various types turn up from time to time. The boss (my Wife) said it looks like teeth marks. I think it's a tire mark from Fred Flintstone's car. I hope you guys have a sense of humor. And that you can shed some light on just what exactly this is.
  18. What are these?

    Found some more interesting pieces. Going to post a few on this single forum post. Here's the first 2
  19. Hello again, I found this unusual shaped piece on a beach on West Coast, Florida. It's hard to tell whether it's a suggestive rock or mineralized bone. It reminded me of a claw or hoof core. I attached 5 photo views. What do you think?
  20. I thought these were cool

    I googled earth and took these pics of the rock formations in Antarctica. I thought they were very interesting, great formations, but didn't see any fossils.
  21. Parking lot

    Found another fossil? At my work place parking lot, glanced down and saw it. Looks like some kind of coral maybe? It's about 2 inches by 1 inch.
  22. Fossil maybe?

    Found this in my work parking lot. Thought it looked neat, didnt know if it was a fossil or not.
  23. fossil or not?

  24. Any ideas?

    I was out metal detecting and found this little rock. I'm sure its probably not a fossil, but what a perfect circle! Anyone happen to know what caused this? Its the size of a penny.
  25. Are they fossil eggs?

    Hi. I found these two rocks, but I don't know what are they. Thank you
