    Found in the Glendo WY area.

  2. Hello guys my 7 year old daughter found this at the harbour beach on holy island Northumberland. When dropped on a hard surface such as a table it sounds and feels like solid stone. Any help would be appreciated.

    Bone or stone

    Hi All, I was walking/ hunting around Monmouth on the Jurassic coast in the UK when I came across this item. It's was in a rockpool at low tide and stood out with it's black colouring in amongst the gray and light flint rock. Most fossils I collected that morning were small clam, mussel and devil toenail shells. It looks like it has been damaged in half and inside has very tiny black crystals. I want to say its a similar shape to a vertebrae but it's probably wishful thinking. I would say 10-12cm diameter. Any thoughts on what if anything this could be would be most welcome. Thank you.

    Stone or fossil? Wyoming

    Hello, have purchased this stone for a few years. Here is my question: is it just a stone, or a fossil? It was found in wyoming. Looking forward to your expertise. Kind regards
  5. I found this brain shaped object on the south cost of England. It’s very heavy. It is not magnetic.
  6. I found this in Germany. 3 cm long. Any idea what this is? I was thinking chert nodule, but what are the markings on it? Are they fossils of some sort? Thank you!
  7. Probably just a rock but I want to make sure. What could've formed the dent at the bottom? It seems very natural/smooth compared to the broken part at the top. Found in Germany,

    This coprolites ?

    Age: Morrison Formation, Jurassic Location: Colorado, USA Size: 54 x 44 x 29mm Coprolite
  9. I found this clearing trees on our property in a coastal town in south Texas. It is rather heavy. At first we thought possible alligator egg as we have a lot of gators in this area…. we are also 3 miles from a river. Any help would be most appreciated.

    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.

    Dino bone?

    While on vacation in Utah USA, a family member bought some fossils in a shop that were supposed to be dinosaur bone. Unfortunately, she has not received any further information with the documents. I got them and would like to know if the story is true. Is there anything more to say about these pieces? They go to a primary school when it comes to dino material so any bit of information would be nice for the kids. Scale in centimeters. Bone? 1

    Found in Florida

    I've been searching for 3 months now to figure this out. I'm not very knowledgeable. Please be kind. It caught my eye, took it home, and cleaned it up.
  13. Hi everyone, this is Matt again. Today in the creek, I found this large wood fossil . Here is a photo:
  14. Hello! Newbie here with a love for fossils. I have a very small collection and only casually hunt for them. Anyways, I was on a trip to Forest County, Pennsylvania this past weekend. I was cruising a creek channel looking for trout in the Allegheny NF when this caught my eye. My gut feeling was this looks like a piece of wood, but it's very dense, it does feel heavy like a piece of stone. There's a lot of sandstone in this creek valley, but this feels much heavier than that. Bark-like striations and some is flaking off like a sedimentary or mica flavor of rock. It's flat on one side with a sma

    Need help to identify what this is

    Found in Germany, sadly i don´t know if i found it where i live, in Hamm NRW, germany or while i was visting either the north or east sea (Nordsee/Ostsee). Had it since I was a small child and was always fascinated by it but couldnt find out, what it is. Because I have it in my possession for about 15 years, i cant really tell much more about location or anthing else, just that it looks like an egg to me, but that might be what I want it to be. its about 6x3x2,5cm big, one side is almost flat with some dark spots and a crack i think going through it. the other side looks like an egg, but

    Can anyone identify this fossil?

    My friend found this fossil about 35 years. Can anyone identify what it could possibly be?

    Gastrolith? Artifact?

    Hello all, I can’t figure this one out! I was collecting fossils from a highly yielding site in Peace River. In this little section of gravel that I reached, it was almost entirely fossilized bone from dugong and whale and turtle. Nestled in the center of this pile of fossils, I uncovered this stone and was immediately taken aback. I have been rock and fossil hunting my entire life, and extensively in this state and this river, and I have never seen anything like this. I have an enormous and worldly collection of rocks and fossils, and I have never seen something this smooth naturally. I

    New find today

    If this is stone, it's very strange. Found in NE colorado near the WY border.

    Found this on the shore

    Any ideas? Looked a little like scales to me? Found in the North east coast of N. Ireland.
  22. Hello, I'm from The Netherlands. (Excuse me if my English isn't perfect) A few years ago I found this grey stone amidst the garden gravel near my house. It was bigger and duller in comparison to the rest of the gravel. When I inspected the stone I discovered that it wasn't so dull after all because on one side it had a small imprint of a star that appeared to be made out of tiny bumps and ridges that extend and surround the star itself in the shape of a circle. I've always been curious to know what it is!

    Found something in Poland
