    object in tunnel in flint

    Went to Ruxton England looking for my own mammoth. Brought home some large rocks instead. Not sure what to make of the orange inclusion in this piece of flint. The whole flint is about 3 by 5 inches with multiple rough spotty enclusions There is significant discussion as to what these flints represent, one concept involves the death and collapse of glass sponges as in: https://www.flint-paramoudra.com/flint-nodules.html Is it a dying glass sponge, a worm and worm burrow, or something else entirely. Help will be appreciated, thanks

    Crystallized sponge?

    Found this on a walk. Very porous with channels filled with tiny crystal

    Circular Branching fossil

    Could this be a sponge? Note the radial structure and the occasional branching rods. Collected in Missouri, but location and age are unknown. Also, the specimen is sawn to 3/4" thick and the fossil doesn't extend into the sawn area! There is a lot of tiny crinoidal hash in the matrix rock. The light blue grid is one inch.

    Something aquatic

    I would welcome any help identifying a fossil that I suspect to be some sort of bacteria/coral/sponge/aquatic item. Sorry to sound so ignorant about it, but I really don't know aquatic life by sight. The fossil is 6 cm long X 4 cm tall X 2 cm thick. Found in an Upper Cretaceous area, Kirtland Formation of northwestern New Mexico. The fossil has the small pits located around the edges and on the opposite side too. Thanks!
  5. Hello there! Last month, I visited the Credit River in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada (Georgian Bay Formation, Upper Ordovician) to look for some fossilized corals. In addition to a bunch of weathered colonial rugose corals, I found an item that I think is something, but I'm not sure what - perhaps a sponge? Here are some photos of it: Side view - dry: Top view - dry: Top view - wet: Thanks so much! Monica

    Sponge? Coral?

    Hi everyone, I found this in marine pliocene-pleistocene sediments. The rock is a sandstone with large cemented elements (pebbles and fragments of shells). What is that round object? It has an ornamentation made of small holes, fairly regular, under the surface the holes seem to widen into small chambers (as you can see in the broken point). Could it be a coral or a fossil sponge? Dimension of the round object: 40x25mm Thanks
  7. I found this twiggy fossil at the Lost Creek Dam site in Jacksboro Texas. It's the Finis Shale Member of the Graham Formation, Upper Pennsylvanian. I thought it might be a Fissispongia jacksboroensis but now I'm wondering if that is right. The two branch-like protuberances have some wavy striations on them I haven't seen before. Any ideas?

    Thrift store finds

    While travelling in British columbia I picked up a couple of fossils, one has something like a fish or strange leaf on it with tiny little oval shapes and shells. Whatever was the focal point of thus fossil appears to have been damaged. I am very interested in what the small oval shapes are as there are many of them and they are on both sides and visible in the cross-section of the stone. If I wet the ovals I may be able to get a better contrast picture. The other is possibly a fossilized sea sponge. Although there is no surrounding stone, The Pink piece seems way too heavy for it

    Florida beach find

    This is a Florida beach find from about 25 years ago. We don't remember the exact location, but somewhere between Ft Meyers and Tampa. It reminds me of sponge but that's just a guess. It could be just an interesting rock, but has those large holes and very small pores. Any help is much appreciated. Thank you.

    Newbie needs help

    I found this on the surface in Westfield, ny about a mile away from lake Erie. This area is all glacial till. Most of the sedimentary rocks strewn about here have fossils, trails, and or ripples. Anybody recognize this?

    north basin Lake Winnipeg

    So I came across this "weird stone. possibly a fossil. The pattern goes all the way through the stone. Found near the north basin of Lake Winnipeg, Manitoba. Does anyone have an idea what this could be / could have been? While I have found numerous snail type fossils, this one was a first... I'm not even sure if this is a fossil at all. more views of the same

    Cretaceous sponges?

    Hello, again I would like to ask for your kind help. I have two sectioned fossils from the Campanian Gosau basin of Kainach, Styria, Austria (St. Bartholomä-Formation). They are accompanied by radiolitid rudists (R), but I don´t think that they are rudists by itself. Could these be some kind of sponges? But I can not see any spicules. Frist specimen is 13.5 cm high, sections are ca. 3 mm apart. Second specimen is 11.5 cm wide, sections are ca. 16 mm apart. There is nothing visible on the wheatered surface, except some Radiolitid fragments. I know this website: http

    Mahantango, Pennsylvania Coral? Sponge?

    Found today by a friend in PA. Someone suggested it might be a sponge but I can't find any images that resemble it. Thanks, and as always, much appreciated.

    Mushroom Fossil?

    As a child I collected rocks. Recently I dug my old collection out of storage, which I haven't looked at since childhood. I found this specimen in the box. I must have found it somewhere in Ontario, Canada in the early 1990s. Any idea what it is?
