    Fossil or rock

    Help us please my son found this in a creek in Missouri and it has porous holes and sticks to tongue like bone but not sure if it’s a fossil or bone. Any help is greatly appreciated!
  2. Hello everybody! Found that near kids sandbox in Prague, Czech Republic, in the city center. Sand and rocks from there are probably brought from some other area. But in this park, only few hundred meters from there some Trilobite fossils can be found. It was just laying on the ground. I think it can be a rock, but its very tooth looking rock. I am no expert in those things. It seems like there is a root. It's exactly 2cm from top to bottom. I can't find any shark tooth looking like that. Other animal? I tried my best in making those photos. But i

    Petrified Wood or Just Rock?

    Found this in South Dakota with other petrified wood. I’m just wondering if this piece is for sure petrified wood, or just a rock? Thank you!

    Fossil or rock?

    I found this thing near the hoodoos in drumheller alberta and it doesn't look like any rock I've ever seen.

    Fossil or Rock

    Good morning and thanks for the invite. I am going blind and just want to see and learn all I can while I can. I have found a few things while walking about here and there in between working outdoors and fishing on the rivers and lakes here in Texas. One piece in particular I found while exploring the property adjacent to where I was living in Cool, Tx (with the permission of the land owner of course) that resembles at a glance or in fact is a fossil. I suppose this could be verified through some sort of examination using equipment that could possibly x-ray or someone w

    Fossil or Xenolith?

    Look I found a thing! Usually when I see a rock embedded in another rock I think fossil... however IF this is a fossil I have no idea what it would be. So at this point im thinking maybe its another Xenolith. What are your thoughts? For anyone interested, this was found near Vancouver Canadia.

    What is this?

    Hey everyone, I had to make a trip up to Spokane, Washington, to help my grandparents move. They’re moving in with us. While I was helping pack boxes, I found this rock in their garage. Obviously has fossils in it. My grandfather was kind enough to give it to me. Any idea what this is? Is it even a fossil? I am attaching pictures.
  8. Purplesandpiper

    Found in North New Jersey

    Understand this may just be a rock but nothing around in the creek bed matches what this looks like. Not sure if it’s some sort of shell concretion or what. Just wondering if anyone had any thoughts.

    Fossil or Rock?

    Found this by the beach. First intuitive feeling is that it is most probably a rock...?

    Fossilized mushroom?

    I recently ordered some decorative stones for my garden when one of them happen to catch my eye. Is this a petrified mushroom it is hard like a rock but has very defined gills.

    Stone cold shark?!?

    Hyachi!! What have I found?? I thought a rock that somewhat resembled the head and mouth of a shark. Thought that was kinda meat. So I washed it off a bit. And studied the rock awhile longer.

    Fossil in beach rock

    I found this rock on Folly Beach yesterday and know even less about these sorts of fossils than I do about shark's teeth. Can someone please tell me what this is? There are 3 of them in the rock, but the other one was harder to photograph. Thanks!
  14. Hi-looking in a field in S.E. Michigan and found this thing. I cannot tell if it is a rock or a bone or a tooth. I am guessing most likely a rock, maybe with the holes from weathering or fossil inclusions? Any help would be much appreciated

    Newbie request for identification

    I appreciate any guidance-my interest is for a general definition, as an art major, to integrate it in my work. I'm sure it's obvious to y'all, thank you for having this forum available.
  16. Skull-yRose

    Found Skull encased in rock!

    I' m a local photographer in Flagler Beach, FL. I frequent a local beach almost daily. I have come across quite an interesting find. Currently due to stormy weather causing rough waves and some higher than normal tides the rocks have been sliding down into the ocean and breaking apart. Well a wonderful treasure was exposed in one of the rocks. A skull. There is also a tooth and what looks to be bone vertebrate. I am in the process of excavating currently but would love to know who this skull belongs to. Any help is appreciated!!
  17. Any thoughts on this?? I found in Indiana In a creek embankment surrounded by thick blue mud/clay. Thank u

    Could this be a coprolite?

    Hi, I hope everyone is well. I was out walking at a location close to Darwen in the UK, north of England on a moor. Happened to come across a small stream the banks very eroded and collapsing so decided to walk the stream and check rocks for fossils and other artifacts and came across a large heavy oval shaped rock under the bank which had collapsed hidden from view I had to reach in and under to get it. It stuck out like a sore thumb from all other rocks, is unusually very heavy for size of the rock. Strange colours and has a gloss effect to it and one side is smoother than the other tha

    Could this be a coprolite?

    Hi, I found this under a collapsed stream bank; already exposed underneath the edge of the collapse hidden from the eye though. Very smooth, and very heavy compared to a rock of similar size. The edge that is the smoothest was exposed to droplets from the underside of the stream bank, slightly rougher side facing down. Could it be a coprolite weathered by water?
  20. Hi everyone this is Matt again. Today in the creek I found a very neat rock with a lot of small corals in it and also some crinoid stems as well as well as a few shells too . Here is a photo:

    Is this invertebrate or vertebrate?

    Hello, the decorative rocks in the complex where I live in Louisiana have fossil traces. Many (possibly all) seem to be metamorphic from originating sedimentary layers. Mostly shells and coral imprints, but I've found two like this now. What is this please? Is it vertebrate or invertebrate? I don't know the actual origin of this rock, where the company that provided it gets them from. It is about one quarter inch in size.

    Bone, or just rock?

    Today I was on a trip in Mississippi and found these suspicious looking objects, the area has generally more mountainous rocks, but these stuck out to me. The first one might be limestone, the second I think is either a rock or a bone, and same with the third, I do not have the one I believe is limestone anymore, but I was just curious if it was limestone.

    Road find

    Rid bone or rock? I found it on the roads edge where it's all pit material full of shells.
