    Araucaria mirabilis

    Old collection specimen. See this Wikipedia page for more information on Araucaria mirabilis from the Jurassic of the Cerro Cuadrado Petrified Forest, Argentina.

    Paleocene petrified wood?

    I found this piece at Douglas Point on the Potomac a while back. I set it aside for a snowy day not sure if it was bone or something else. Definitely fossilized, but a little weird for bone. Taking a closer look today at the recently broken end, I think I see growth rings. And maybe thin bark on the outside? Is this petrified wood? If so, it would be a first for me from there.
  3. Hello to all. This is my collection of flora from the Carboniferous period. This topic will be filled gradually - there is a lot of material. All material originates from the Araukarite Formation of the Gzhel Stage of the Upper Pennsylvania Carboniferous period (303.4 Ma). Unless otherwise specified, it means that the default sample is from this formation. The type of substitution is silicification (sometimes with ferruginization), sometimes with quartz crystals on the surface of the samples. Enjoy watching Part 1. Sample 1.

    Pyritised wood

    Hi everyone, wanted to show off this piece i found a few months ago in Normandy, France. Far from an expert but as far as i could tell it's a piece of wood that turned into charcoal and where the bark pyritised, it's about 7cm tall. Had trouble finding similar specimens online, is this a common occurance? (The wood part is very shiny because i had to glue it because it started to become very cracked and unstable after a few months)
  5. Hello to all. Although I exhibited this sample in the next topic, I think that it is worthy of a separate publication. For all the time of my finds, I came across such a sample for the first time. It is a long branch (about 80 cm) with a large knot in the middle. I had to tinker, extracting it from the red clay. It originates from the Araukarite Formation of the Gzhel Stage of the Upper Pennsylvania Carboniferous period (303.4 Ma). Found in the Donetsk region of Ukraine.
  6. Hello, I visited a few days ago the Habarana Eco Park in Sri Lanka and at the viewpoint, there were some really strange rocks that looked like they contained pieces of fossilised wood - the location of the view point (I guess) shown on Google maps: The rocks in situ look like on pictures WA0 to 03. Here are the close-ups of a few pieces: Is it fossilised wood? Kasia

    Curious odds and ends

    Some things from Post Oak creek not sure if they're something or not, with exception of #3, pretty sure the one with ridges is echinoid spine and other one is fossil just don't know what. Really intrigued by whatever the yellow is, don't think it's man-made, it doesn't melt anyway.

    Fossils in coalified pyritized wood

    The new Eagle Ford exposure in the creek we've been hunting is littered with various stages of petrified and coalified wood in the marl, Dale found a good size limb and chopped out some chunks which contained fossils. This is new to me never seen fossils in wood before, Dale has bigger pieces with bigger fossils and thinks thier some kind of boring clam like Toredo worm, but these look nothing like those to me and I want more details. These are completely shelled and how can something round and smooth bore? Dale's pieces have ones with 'balls' an inch across. On the side of big piece is 2 ob

    Petrified wood or rock?

    Found in NE colorado near an eroded stream bed. About 3 inches long.

    US fossil Wood

    I obtained this slice of polished fossil wood labelled from the USA,is it possible to know the ID?location and the stage? thanks(UV lght on the second picture)
  11. Never been startled by a fossil before now, this thing has a life of it's own. Came from creek in Eagle Ford with QT and QAL material, looked like wet wood until I washed and dried it, I could shine it with my shirt, almost looks silver it's so shiny, as I'm turning it and looking with loop I hear a click noise, couldn't figure out where it was coming by from until 3rd time, after I stopped moving it clicked and I could feel it. That's when it got weird, as I'm taking pictures , not touching it, it clicked, several times. It is light, sounds like bone when tapped, very hard, and wondering o
  12. Help with finding out the value how old it is the blue stuff on the petrified Wood is spray paint it was given to me like that.
  13. i received few minerals(sometimes sliced and polished) from a old collection mixed with fossils,mostly without name and location ,i think these are fossil wood;i think it's probably from Madagascar,is it possible to find the location?

    Fossil wood???

    Hello i found this in the desert when I was looking for marine jurrasic fossils(I found some) and I found this bizarre thing this was found in Riyadh Saudi Arabia so it could be dated to 15000-5000 years ago when Arabia was green can anyone please help me identify it thank you , I appreciate it

    Petrified Wood, or Imposter?

    Wanted an opinion on whether this is petrified wood or just a rock doing a clever impersonation. I found it in my in-laws' landscape rock at the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri. Obviously, I have no idea if it originated from that area.

    Is this petrifying wood?

    Hundred workers, most of whom were Irish, began excavating the Chambly canal basin using picks and shovels, working 12 hours a day. Despite the cholera epidemic that broke out in 1832, some 600 workers managed to dig two thirds of the canal’s 19.31 kilometers. Now, enough about history, let talk about fossil, the Chambly canal was dig in the Lorraine Group part of the Nicolet River Formation. To the pleasure of the fossil hunter, the canal is empty dry for the winter season, making the bottom of the canal available for inspection. https://www.pc.gc.ca/en/lhn-nhs/qc/chambly
  17. Please help me ID this component of a conglomerate block found in Romania, Harghita county. Compared to the rest of pebbles and matrix, it is outstanding in every way: size, shape, internal structure. There is no reaction to vinegar and all considered, I would say it is a piece of chalcedony. Did the silica replaced wood, bone or not a fossil? Thank you! Diameter is ~45 mm, lenght ~90mm.

    Petrified Wood In Michigan

    Please help settle a debate on a Facebook page - Can petrified wood be found in Michigan? Considering that at least 95% of our state is recent overburden on top of Paleozoic or older rocks, is it possible to find naturally occurring petrified wood? It seems many swear that their finds are petrified wood, but looking at the geological history - predominantly shallow seas depositing sediments during the Paleozoic, followed by the glacial bulldozing during the Pliestocene would make petrified wood and impossible prospect. Thoughts?

    Possibly wood?

    I was wondering what type of tree this is from. It came from my favorite spot north of Jasper Tx in the Catahoula formation.It appears to be compressed due to the extreme pressure . Some of the bark is still attached,and solid as is the rest of the piece. Thanks for the help.

    Petrified Wood

    Not sure if this is the right spot for this topic. Found this over the summer here in Iron Co. Missouri while at the creek. Pretty sure it's a chunk of petrified wood. Just wanted to ask you all & make sure. Sorry again, it's 5"x1"x1"

    Rock or Fossil?

    I found this rock on the edge of the hill in my backyard in Helotes, Tx. The previous heavy rains have exposed a lot on my hillside. I am in sure what the wood looking pieces are in pictures 3&4. If anyone is familiar, that would be great.
  22. Hello. I offer for trade fragments of petrified wood of the Carboniferous period with crystals of smoky quartz. Some samples are in the photographs (I did not upload all the samples I have, since there are quite a few of them - of different sizes and qualities, as well as the sizes of the crystals themselves. I think we can agree on what specifically interests you - I have no doubt that I will find the sample you need). The origin of this wood is Ukraine, its age is Carbon. I'm interested in marine reptiles and petrified wood. Thank you. Have a nice day
  23. The first is a large piece of petrified driftwood I found in Big Brook a couple years ago, the second is a fragment I am trying to ID. I noticed that the grain texture on the fragment looked like the wood grain on my piece of petrified wood, so I am trying to figure out if it might be petrified wood as well. Thanks! @Trevor
  24. A recent find. Has a texture that could be bark, but I am leaning towards coral.
