    Please help identify

    I found this circular stone type rock in my yard in mississippi. We have a small creek behind our house and we tend to find different rocks there.

    Fruit pod or something?

    OK, so once again, I found something today. I would like an ID on it. It’s about the size of my thumbnail, looks like a piece of a prehistoric fruit or something. I honestly don’t know what it is. It looks like it was once attached to a prehistoric plant, you can see in one of the pictures. I’m not sure what it is. Any help can be appreciated on this. Found in Boise, Idaho. It is cloudy right now so the light conditions are not best.

    What's left of rugose coral?

    I have zero experience with corals, so just going by pictures I've seen on this guess. This was in creek with Alluvium/ Eagle Ford mix, I spent about an hour prepping it to expose the top and smooth side of what was a mound with vague outline. Hope I didn't screw it up too much!

    Odd stone for ID

    Hi helpful people I'm not a fossil hunter but I found a really intriguing looking stone while fishing some time ago. The dug out pattern on one side puts me in mind of seeds in a pod. Pretty sure someone here will know what it is fossil or not. Found in the UK on a gravel pit. Thanks in advance for any help.
  5. Hi everyone this is Matt again. Today in the creek I found 2 neat brachiopod fossils. Here are some photos:

    Matrix stone with tabulate coral

    The fossils in this stone are probably Thamnopora sp., a tabulate coral common in the Verde Valley of Arizona. Normally it appears in dolomite from the late Devonian (Frasnian), This specimen was picked up way outside the normal range, in an ancient riverbed, where rocks generally come from the Martin and Redwall limestone beds to the west. What's weird (to me) is that this stone matrix is impervious to HCl. No reaction at all, as if it's chalcedony, but it doesn't look or feel like chert or any other chalcedony I'm familiar with. Does anyone have an idea what this stone may be an
  7. Hi everyone, this is Matt again. Does anyone know what these things in this rock I found are called ? Here are some photos:

    ID of a cemetery fossil

    Hi there :) I work at a cemetery and today noticed what appears to be a fossil in one of the stones around a grave. I was wondering if anyone could help me out figuring out what it is? My colleagues have apparently been talking about it for ages but havent been able to settle the matter. The "fossil" is sort of protruding slightly from the clean cut stone, which at first made me think it was some sort of family logo or even a production marker or something. But it DOES sort of look a bit like the inner bits of a squid. Though, as my name suggests, I am a complete newbie in th
  9. Hey all, I've got a beautiful plate from Green River containing two Priscaceras. The stone itself however is kind of ugly, and I'd like to at least egalize the colours of the stone if possible. Would that be possible, and how could I do that? How about slightly scuffing the stone itself?

    Tusk/Corral/Stone?

    I found my dog chewing on this in our backyard after he had been digging. I'm curious as to what it may be, and whether or not I should let him keep it! It is roughly 7 centimeters wide at the base and 13 centimeters long. Found in Fort Worth, Texas. Any information is appreciated! Thanks!
  11. Hi everyone this is matt again check out this worm trace fossil I found in the creek today here is a photo

    Dear Forum My mother got theses "stones" a long time ago, they seem like fossils to me, but I don't know, she told me they were in a plough field, close to Pécs in Hungary. the big one: 9 cm x 6 cm the little one: 6 cm x 4 cm Thank you so much for any help:)

    Stone or fossil ?

    Hi, Found this at a Belgian beach and am curious about it's origin as it has this circular structure and what looks like a crust on top. First glance it looked maybe bony, but it could just be rock. Was hoping to get some specialist feedback.

    Fossil ID help

    I found this stone outside my house and have never seen one like this before. Could it be a fossil of some kind? I live in oregon but this could have been brought from somewhere else by the previous owners if the house. Any help is much appreciated!
  15. What do preparers use to create a false matrix for fossil displays like this? Thanks!
  16. good morning all a recent post of mine and then the response of 2 members concerned keeping (or not) of found modern bone. which got me wondering - WHAT DO YOU FOLKS COLLECT OR KEEP? (not exactly sure what the difference is). For me, collecting in Cretaceous Big Brook, fossil shark or other teeth are my main finds and hence my main collection. But i collect, or at least keep pretty much anything i find that i like so i also keep belemnite, fossil shells, modern bone, interesting stones and artifacts ranging from pottery shards to glass bottles (and even odd stuff like shell
  17. Is this a fossil or just two different rock types. One softer that has worn in the shape of a tooth? I found it in a river in Wicklow in Ireland. Any comments appreciated.
  18. Found several of these while digging a hole for the swimming pool in our house. It was very surprising as I found hundred of them. Can anyone tell it is century old. I took a video of my discovery too.
  19. Found this 'interesting' rock that had appeared to have fallen down a cliff that me and my partner had scaled down. Thought it looked pretty neat and resembled petrified wood. However, I am definitely no expert here. The rock was found on an English Coastline in a place called Valley of The rocks in Lynton. Millions of years ago there was once a river at the coastline which is supposedly how the valley was formed. I believe there are quartz crystals in the rock too. Is it just a rock? I'm sure you guys get plenty of posts like these lol. Thankyou
  20. I was encouraged to share this in the forum so here it goes. I was given a pile of "amber" and two pieces that may or may not (most likely not) have something inside. After the "amber" failed the saltwater float test it was proposed that I may have copal, NOT amber. I tried my best to take as clear of pictures as my camera phone would allow. The first piece supposedly it has a "bug or stick or something" inside. The copal, if it really is copal, does not appear very clear, even with a light source behind it. The second piece is a little more transparent when the light shines throug

    Some bone, tooth/jaw, and an IDK

    Some interesting finds from my weeks NJ brook trip. Some new and good finds to take macros of and share. I hope that you will find my little man IDK thingy at least entertaining. I might place him in the collection as a personal good luck charm to acknowledge before heading out on a future trip. I don’t know what he is or how he came to be- but he is sure interesting. Cheers!!!!

    Tooth? Bone? Or Stone?

    Can anyone shed any light on what this maybe please?
  23. Hi all - complete newbie here. Just wondering could anyone provide identification of this fossil creature. Source: a stone in a loose open dry wall typical of farms in the west of Ireland Location: Athenry area, County Galway, Ireland Notable feature: there is a one cm deep depression above the segmented component Many thanks in advance. https://postimg.cc/y3R0H6RW EDIT: Image posted here so it will remain long after the off-site link goes dead. -Ken
  24. Hi everyone this is matt again today in the creek I found a wide variety of fossils mostly brachiopods and crinoid stems here is a few photos
  25. Where it would seem like the jawline, has lines like the circular insect/worm, but towards the back the ridges patter turns into a round bumps pattern, and also turning the fossil around there is a hole that would look like where the spine would be. otherwise it is just a mashup is sea bugs and shells. Not sure where this was found, probably in the PA Delaware river.
