  1. I bought this online and they have 100 percent positive feed back. I can return it if its fake. I was told by a local rock hound that if it has an insect in the amber its 99 times out of 100 fake. I don't have it yet its out of Lithuania and will not be here for a few weeks. I can do the salt water test and ultra violet test but wondered what you guys thought visually.

    Found in Galway, Ireland

    Hi, I found this fossil on my land in Co. Galway, Ireland today. Can you please confirm what sort of fossil it is. Roughly just over 6 inches by 6 inches. Thank you, Mattie

  6. Hi guys, I recently started learning to fossil hunt for my son as he loves dinosaurs and on our first trip we found this in a limestone. I am completely new and really sorry if this borders on an insult to some of your experience but I have no idea whether to crack the rock open and have a look or whether I’d end up breaking a fossil of some kind if I did or whether it is just a mineral running through of some sort! There was a much larger rock with the same streaks but in a diamond shape on the beach so if it is a fossil I’ll be running back there ASAP Tha

    Fossil or just a pretty stone?

    Hi, New to the forum, obviously... so I hope I'm doing this correctly! I found this while walking along Brighton Beach yesterday and was wondering if its a fossil or just a nicley marked stone. I have no knowledge of these things so was hoping someone could help my curiosity! Thank you!
  13. Found these on last year's fishing trips on the Trinity, there are no gravel banks on this stretch just dirt and some rocks here and there. Now is this a stone with a butt crack or very worn Echinoid? Has the makings of one, if it is I've never seen one turned to stone like this, how old might this be? The seashell was a surprise to find, I know it's worn but is it a whelk? And would it be pleistocene?

    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.
  18. 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

    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
  22. 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?

    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!
