    What kind of crystallized fossil?

    If crinoid stem, why encased? (Found in Mimico Creek, Toronto)
  2. Hi, I'm a newbie to this forum and would really appreciate some help identifying a fossil that my son found last week in mid-wales, Upper Gilwern Hill Quarry, Powys. It was found in the same strata of slate with trilobites that the quarry is famous for. multiple photos attached. Many thanks in advance for anyone who can help identify it.

    Tiny Chinese fossil needs ID

    I got this little tile over 10 yrs ago when I didn't know anything about fossils and didn't have a loop. All I saw was clams I thought, now I see something but can't remember what it was supposed to be, and brachiopods I think. Appreciate any help on ID and approximate age.

    Long Rock Identificarion

    I am doubtful this is anything at all. I itch that being said go easy on me - I am just settling the debate that is it well just a rock . P. S. Willing to be wrong.

    What is this?

    Found this in St. Clair, Pennsylvania in slate quarry on private property. Each piece is 2.5 inches width by 9 inches length. I love it but don't know anything about it. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.
  6. I was fortunate to be able to take two trips recently to the Marmaton group in Northern Missouri and wanted to share my trip report with the forum. It's hard to find information on the Marmaton in Missouri, and I struggled with the geology and understanding what members within the Marmaton I was seeing, but I had a great time non the less. I grew up in this region and have some ‘insiders’ information on a few spots I wanted to check out just from spending time running around the countryside as a kid. The first was in a local creek in the township I grew up in that contains concreti
  7. Amateur with regards to stones and fossils but always interested me since I was little. Got this collection of stones an aunt assembled on here journeys. My jongest still picks up stones wherever he goes so I guess it runs in the family. He was actually looking in that same collection and broke what I believe is slate and found something with a distinct shape and different colour. Could this be a fossil or formation of other type of mineral? Region is unsure, most likely Belgium, Wallonia (south) Regards, Simon

    Fossil ?

    This is Carrabassett slate from Mayfeild, Maine. Can anyone read what these features are ?
  9. This may be a silly question, but how do I know if something is actually a fossil or just a weird shaped rock? Also, if anyone knows - how do these weird shaped rocks form in the slate/shale if they aren't fossils? Not looking for an ID (yet!), just trying to figure out how all the weirdly shaped rocks came to be! I went hiking with my mom in our backyard because she found what we believe to be nautiloid fragments (link to ID thread) and we wanted to see if we could get more. Well we found lots of oddly shaped rocks, but are unsure if they are actually anything. If it helps, we are in a c

    Tiny fossils?

    Hi, I was out looking for fossils at Kinnekulle in Sweden and found these in the slate. I'm wondering if they may possibly be very small fossils? each one measures approximately 3 millimeters. Anyone know what they might be?
  11. Hi new to the forum I found this many years ago walking along a beach not sure what it is or best ways to maybe extract them as there is a few of what you see throughout the rock.

    Creek bed fossil

    I found this fossil a few weeks ago. It was in a creek bed that flows during the wet season but has pools in the dry. I know the creek has sandstone, but it also looks like it has limestone and possibly slate. There is also a lot of rocks containing rust. This fossil appears to be stained with it. I am located in Western Kentucky near Hopkinsville. One side looks like it is ribs. The other side is smooth and one part is unusually round. There are pockets that appear to be filled with sediment that has solidified into rock. I've added pictures from all sides and others
  13. I believe the same “super silver” material (that I found from another trip here)may have once been present in the round areas on this piece of slate. But not sure as I didn’t see any anywhere this time. Do you have any ideas what may have caused them? I think the rock is slate. Right? It was found near a river in Ohio. Thanks!

    Really nice plant fossil needs IDing

    My friend recently kindly helped me buy a really cool plant fossil, the slate is around 24 cm in length and is extremely heavy and solid. There are multiple other leaves in the slate, I have no clue where it is from or what species of plant it is. Is it a kind of Palm plant? All information would be helpful. Regards, indominus rex

    Ichthyosaurus bones in slate?

    Hi, I saw this slate from Holzmaden,Germany,where many many ichthyosauruses remains have been found,online being sold as « ichthyosaurus bones » Are they really bones? I can see some possible structure but I’m not sure... I never saw any 2D bones like that in a slate. What do you think? Here are the picture I have. Is it rare if it is??? Regards
  16. When I found it the stone had been used as part of the stone wall. Wondering if someone can Identify the plant and how old it might be.

    Steneosaurus tooth

    From the album: Holzmaden

    A 1 cm long and 0.15 cm wide Steneosaurus (crocodile) tooth from the quarry Kromer in Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic).
  18. Found on a beach outside of Windsor, Nova Scotia, Canada - closer to Cheverie. Beautiful slate beaches and near huge gypsum deposits. March 2016

    Haven't A Clue.

    Was about to throw away this piece of slate that I was using in my rock garden. I noticed what looks like an "8" see attached picture.
