  1. Hello! I wonder if anyone would be kind enough to look at this for me and help confirm it’s ID? I’m quite inexperienced and when I found this over the winter, I crammed as much info on ID-ing bone as I could and concluded it was wood / plant material. I find a lot of wood in this area, so that makes sense. It happened to be in the background of a photo I posted to Instagram, and someone said they’re sure it’s bone - so I thought I’d double check here. It’s from the Helmsdale, North of Scotland - Jurassic-aged Portgower Boulder Beds member (157.3 - 152.1 mya, Kimmer

    Identification Help - Backyard Find

    Hello, I was outside this morning in my backyard here in Tennessee digging up a stump. I found this odd looking stone/fossil about 3ft deep. It stands up on a desk perfectly flat with no wiggle. Its about 3 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches tall and wide and a little over a pound in weight. It has some interesting markings. Not sure what it is. Thanks for you help!

    petrified wood?

    Found this in the Iron Mountains of Southwest Virginia in Carroll County. It was on the surface of the ground. At first thought it was a piece of wood, which is probably why my mind went straight to petrified wood when I realized it was stone. It has rings, like growth rings of a tree, but I don't have the magnifying tools to make out any smaller structures within the rings. The outer surface also has a barklike texture. Am I right?

    Is this fossilized wood?

    Hello, I have this piece of rock found in the Motagua Valley of Guatemala. I was wondering if it might be some type of fossilized wood. Thanks, Nicholas VID-20230515-WA0014.mp4

    Bone and wood?

    Hi all! I'm a fairly new fossil fan and a middle school science teacher. To my excitement, this was left in my classroom by a previous teacher. It looks to be bone and possibly petrified wood? I was hoping someone with more knowledge could help me out. Much thanks!!!!
  11. Hello can someone help me identify this one? Origin unknown, got it in Denver CO please help if you can

    Wood or bone?

    Riverside Co., CA Lots of petrified wood in the area, but most of that is much darker and this looked like it might be a fragment of bone. Thoughts?

    Petrified wood or not?

    I grabbed this rock as a friend was tossing it out of a flower pot, mostly because it initially looked like petrified wood. After studying it some, I don't think it is, but I am not certain how to identify pet wood (am researching how to do this, though)? I don't see regular patterns on the ends of the rock, which I would expect to find in petrified wood. Is that correct? Found in Alabama, but no idea where it's origin is, since it was in a flower pot. See last photo for size comparison to a water bottle lid - it's a small rock. I checked it for transparency and some edges are transparent but
  14. I found this in a natural spring in 2022 down in Florida near Apopka. We were in the area for a family vacation and as we were floating down the stream, my hand hit this, so I went under water and dug it up. Not sure whether it's bone or a small piece of wood fossilized. It sounds like marble when I place it on our counter. So whatever it is, it seems to be fossilized/petrified.Thanks for any info you may have.

    Petrified wood?

    Found these pieces near Palos Verdes CA was wondering if it’s petrified wood. Thank you . Both pics are the same rock front and back.
  16. Something that has been a long time coming... As I have no air tools for prepping fossils, I got the bee in my bonnet to try using bits of wood and glue to break away bits of matrix partially covering leaves from McAbee specimens that I collected years ago (before the gov't ban on collecting there). It worked pretty well on these few pieces I tried. The only difficulty came when the matrix to be removed was too thick and integrated with the surrounding matrix. Then it would only peel the thinnest layer off the top. Another round or rounds could eventually accomplish the task in this case, as I

    Yesterday's Finds

    Another great day in the sunshine with friends. Kayaking in a slow current, finding chest deep water, sun shining, a few drops of rain. The deep water is aerobic exercise for me, really helps my back both during and after. We were in 2 locations. One was chest deep , finding mostly small shark teeth. I think there are a couple of Tiger shark parasymphyseals/symphyseals there, some nice Hemis/Tigers...and one of my friends found the beat_up Horse tooth and asked if I thought it was pre_Equus. I said I was not sure but I would give someone on TFF an opportunity to answer. @Me
  18. Hi everyone, When I least expected it, I made an unexpected catch while I was fishing in the snake river, at the bottom of the canyon near Twin Falls, Idaho. Since nothing was biting, I decided to set my pole down and look at some rocks. While I was digging through some loose soil in the river, I found this. It appears to be a small piece of petrified wood. When I found it, I said to myself, “Well, it’s not a fish, but it’s something.” At least I got something while fishing! Jared

    Garden find. Need ID

    I was prepping the garden today at my house. While I was building one of the raised beds, I found this sticking out of the dirt. It’s definitely rock, and it looks like wood. However, I cannot tell if this is petrified wood or something else. Can someone help me ID this? Location where it was found was Dietrich, Idaho.

    Please help identify

    Hello again! Found this today onboard Camp Pendleton…thoughts on what it might be?

    Pet wood or partial tooth?

    I have looked under magnification but can't find any wood cell structure so this one is throwing me off but still leaning toward wood. Under magnification I did find hairline striations but those can also be found in some enamel. This piece is also polished looking but it is as it was found could it be a tooth fragment?.

    Preserving this

    I’ve got multiple pieces of wood, some with original bark, as peat with remenants of stuff in, that is all around 4,500-6,000 years old from an ancient forest, but now that it’s come out of the sea will it just rot like normal? What would be the best way to preserve it?

    Mammoth / Mastodon Tusk or Petrified Wood?

    Hello. I have an opportunity to purchase this item but I am not sure if it is a Mammoth or Mastodon Tusk or a piece of petrified wood? It is 36" long and weighs 97 pounds. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Possible petrified wood

    Found within creek bed in Orange County, California. Have had this one for some time now. Always thought it looked sort of like petrified wood but is difficult to tell. The answer may be more obvious to someone else. Appreciate any input. Thanks.
