    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.

  4. 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

    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

    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.
  12. 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

    Hi i found this in Sounth West Poland, it was on a road in the wood. There were many stones to make the sand road stronger when vehicles moves. I just thought it is not normal stone. Sorry foe my english, I am from Poland. This weird shapes have in it some like mud stone, I think with some equipment it can be cleaned but not with water.
  14. Hi everyone this is Matt again. Again in the creek, I found another small rock with 2 neat brachiopods in it. Here is a photo of the fossil:

    Unusual stone

    This is heavy, like stone. I have never seen anything like this. Found in NE Colorado. If it were fossilised bone it would be porous I guess.
  16. Dear Forum, These I found whilst exploring Shotley Beach, just by Felixstowe in East Anglia, England. I've taken two pictures of each ('front' and 'back' - they're all very flat); but I can provide more if something's really of interest! Regarding nomenclature, we can refer to them as A-G. Best Regards Jamie

  20. 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.
