Sharon B posted a topic in Fossil IDI have no idea what this is. Someone thought it was a tooth, but it doesn't look like one to me. It's 7.5 inches long, 2 inches at its widest, and about 0.75 inch at its thickest. The distance from the piece away from the scale distorts the size and makes it look a little bigger in the photos than it actually is. Thank you! Edited to add location. Washington State
Tooth, Tusk ?
Shellseeker posted a topic in Fossil IDHunting yesterday, We usually pack it in at 2 pm, start the journey home. It is about that time. This is generally a marine, Miocene environment. Bone is an unusual find. I pick this out of the sieve because it flashes blue. At first, I think tooth, and that's exciting, but then I see the brown and not so sure. Also rock can be agatized into blue colors here. Anyways, toss into the collection bag and on to the next sieve. Pretty Interesting? This is the photo that grabs my attention. 47 x 24 mm
What Do We Have Here?
saint francis posted a topic in Fossil IDHi there, nice to meet you. I live on the Isle of Wight on the South coast of the UK. I found this on the beach today and wondered what it might be. It is 2 inches long and has the feel and texture of a pebble, like it's made of stone. It seems like there are a few little holes which run through its length. I know very little about fossils I'm afraid, but thought it may be of interest. To the untrained eye, it looks like it might be part of a tooth, tusk or bone? Or maybe nothing at all. Thanks for looking....
