  1. So I found these in my backyard while working on my chicken coop and I don't know if they are dinosaur eggs or concretions

    Possible fossils

    Hello my 9 year old son loves finding unique rocks, fossils, bones, etc. Can anyone tell me if these are any types of fossils? We’re located in Ruidoso, NM, our property has a lot of sandstone in some areas. Thanks
  3. I found this fossil while we were out in our keep the other day. There are 2 fossils in one. One looks like a bottle cap and the other looks like a walnut
  4. Any ideas on my finds during my rockhouding experience last week in Canada?
  5. dclucker

    Are these fossils? What type

    What is your guess on these?
  6. Hello, This might be a simple/straightforward question, but I'm still curious to know how you guys deal with all the rubble created from fossil preparation.
  7. What's up, everyone?! I'm in Quincy, WA for work for about 6 weeks and would love to do some digging. Does anyone know if there some good spots out here? Also, I don't know if the regulations are the same as at home (New Mexico). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Hope you all are happy and healthy! View from the base of my driveway. Columbia River at dawn.

    Clean coral fossils

    Hello, I'm new. Can someone tell me how to preserve and clean my coral fossils? Vinegar, hot water and soap, none of that works. How do I keep the black off of them? And should they be kept outside and watered regularly with the hose? Any information would help. I have been collecting fossils for 21 years now and just realized I have a wonderful hobby. I love rocks. Thank you so much.
  9. Rock John

    Texas finds.

    Just sharing, let me know if something stands out. Thank you.
  10. Rock John

    Not sure what this is.

    Not sure what this is. I found it in the Texas hill country Blanco river. Its approximately 1 1/8 round. Can anybody help identify. Thank you.
  11. All of these are from the Winterset Limestone Formation and dated to the Pennsylvanian period Found in Missouri I found this in a rock that was completely covered in these structures and had many layers to them Here are a few I decided to take home with me Natural color in daylight (measurements are in the last photo of this specimen): Specimen #2
  12. FossilBoi

    septarian concretion??

    What do you think. Found in James river. Central Virginia
  15. Bloodrobe

    Found at Wilkeson WA.

    Looking for some ID on these if anyone knows. Just trying to understand what I might have here. These were found around the coke ovens in Wilkeson. #1 Flat wood looking striations. #2 Black speckled #3 Small dark pours evident
  16. I found these both in an area where a couple of arrowheads and a some broken pieces have been found but these two rocks along with one more that looks just like them I found on a different day a couple hundred yards away look all to similar to make me think that they are possibly tools or something used by an ancient people, but I don't know I'm not to good at identifying stuff like this. Also the pictures just aren't as good as seeing them. Any help would be great please and thanks.
  17. I have a serious question. As.I was taking pictures of a few of my fossils, I decided to zoom in on my rock. I became so intrigued By what I was I continues zooming in on alot of my small fossils. Does anyone else being their zoom to a max and just inspect a rock? It looked like little dinosaurs everywhere. My questions are does anyone else do this? And also what are these things that look like little dinosaurs when I zoom? It's like I can see how many crazy things. Any answers or suggestions would be great. I'll take the negative and positive. Should I stay away from zooming in or what?
  18. San Antonio, Tx 78023 The rock in the left was found behind my sisters house about 30 yards from a dried out creek bed. It was found about 8 in down while metal detecting. So far we have pulled about six various size rocks from this hole. It looks like it hard a corn, on the top right of that rock. The rock on the right is just another one from my back yard.
  19. I found this strange cracked rock in the Oquirrh Mountains in Tooele Co (Ut) in an area that I've found fossils. It’s got a crusty sedimentary like texture underneath the cracked subaqueous surface. I sure would appreciate some help in identifying this rock and why it has strange cracks all over it??? I share many of my fossils and rocks w/ local school children, so it would be nice to know more about this rock before I share it. All of the pictures are of the same rock & one is a pic of the backside of it.

  21. Hi guys! I am looking for new areas to hunt for rocks and fossils around the KC area. I have been to the Blue river, Kansas river, Cedar creek, Tuttle creek, Perry Lake, Mill creek, and abandoned quarry areas. Anyone have any general locations of where I can find some stuff? I am an avid hunter for all sorts of fossils and rocks (rockhounding is my favorite past time)! I've had the most luck at the Kansas river and Perry lake. Some of my finds include cow skulls, cone coral, shells, agates, vertebrae, and a bunch of druzy quartz geodes and chalcedony. I ha
  22. So i really like the fossils from morroco so i would really like to buy slabs/rocks from morroco mostly the kem kems. So i could find fossils in the rocks myself is there anyway to do that?
