    Fossilised Wood? - ID Request

    Hello! I wonder if anyone would be kind enough to give me an opinion about this… It struck me as looking like fossilised driftwood? I’ll be totally honest, just because it looked so much like a modern piece of driftwood at the ends. The striations seemed weird for rock normal banding, layering. Also, there seems to be faded bands running at right angles to the striations on a couple of faces - which again seemed a wood-like feature? I’m very happy to be wrong though! I was lucky, the tide was just going out when I spotted it still wet - it’s fairly unremarkable dry.

    Petrified bone/wood?

    Hello everyone! The smaller piece I found in the woods in NC, and polished it up some. Not sure if it’s wood or bone, or?? If it is bone, any idea what type? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks everyone!!

    Snails in Petrified Wood

    Found this in a creek bed in NE Ohio. Looks like he (the snail) was fixin’ to get some grub, and then the great flood came and brought instantaneous death. Died happy and that’s more than what we can ask from life. From what I’ve researched, they eat sap. Not sure what the other thing is there with the long spike looking thing, I need a microscope. Anyway, is it possible to identify the type of wood/snail from the pictures? I was thinking wood was Jet because it polishes up into a graphite color and it streaks brown against porcelain. Also it kind of looks like it has a leaf or som

    Petrified Wood?

    This was found at a gravel pit in Northeast Ohio. 8" long, 2" diameter. Petrified wood? We have 0 knowledge on fossils so any info would be greatly appreciated!
  5. Apologies for the dramatic title. I thought it sounded cool and stuck with it even though 90 + 80 + 80 is only 250 . Anyways... This past 30 days, I decided to make it a point to check out some new spots. I won't be living in Austin soon, so I thought it would be good to branch out and scout some new locations with potential. I've found lots of creek-worn mosasaur bits and pieces over the past year. I'm ready to find things in situ, and, one day, something articulated. It's a tall order, I know, but I feel like it's the next step and really the ultimate goal I've always had. So, th

    Flintstones Bowling Ball

    I'm at a loss on what this could be, I found this around Clearmont, Wyoming on the Clear Creek, northern Wyoming.
  7. Hello! New member here. I’m not much of a fossil collector but I have a few I’ve found myself; mostly petrified wood. At a recent gem/mineral/fossil show I won a silent auction lot that had two pieces in it. The main one was a nice branch segment and the second was an odd shaped rock (pictures below). The lot had a piece of paper that just said “petrified wood”. My bid won. No idea where the rock came from originally as it was donated by someone. The second piece doesn’t look like any petrified wood I’ve ever seen. I’m hoping someone can tell me something about what it might be. Th
  8. Hello, in my quest for jet and amber I came across this piece this week in an old mine. This is the first time that I have found a piece of good jet covered with its bark totally pyritized over several millimeters. I find the result very pleasant but I fear for its stability in the months or years to come! This dates from the Turonian and the abandoned mine is in Languedoc Roussillon in France!

    Is this common?

    Found near one of my favorite trails right on the edge of our spread in Grant County New Mexico. I'm hoping you find it as neat as I do.

    Found near the edge of my trail here in Grant County N.M. any ideas?

    A nail in a fossil?

    I don't have much to tell about where this rock was found. It's been in a stash of collected rocks for a while. But I'm curious if anyone has any ideas what it could be. My impression is fossilized wood, but I have no idea what the white band is. There is what appears to be a rusty nail of sorts embedded in it through the darker area and then into the white area. Any ideas?

    Help to identify.

    Found this at my local river near Manchester in the UK close to a recent landslide, it looks like a tree bark or something to me and is a foot long. Any help to identify and date would be appreciated.

    Coalified wood?

    Found this larger chunk of rock (too hard to be modern charcoal) while sifting for microfossils. It has a metallic look to it and is fairly brittle. It was found on bradford beach on Lake Michigan and was likely eroded out of the mid Devonian Milwaukee formation which is known for its coalified trees and giant fungi. this looks like a lot of coalified wood I’ve seen pictures of, but I’m pretty new when it comes to plant fossils so this might just be mineral. Thanks!
  14. I finally completed the reorder of my collection of fossils and minerals. It is a wooden hexagonal display cabinet of several wood/glass shelf; in the pictures attached I only show some of them. I 3D printed more than 20 custom drawer compartments for the smallest specimens. I decided to go for a modular design, so I can adapt every compartment to the specimen. As printing material, I used a "wood PLA" filament 3D printed with 1 mm nozzle on the Alfawise U20 3D printer. LINK I finally added a strip LED inside the cabinet door and powered it via a USB power-b
  15. I have collected wet clay or shale with many types of fossils embedded in it. I have found leaves, a fish, a pine cone, wooden bits, ect. Much of the fossils are there and havent turned to rock, so may not be considered an actual fossil. I am hoping some may have ideas on how to preserve these. I got them from Clarkia, ID. There is a youtube video called "Plants are Cool, too! Episode 2: Fossilized Forests!" that talks about the area. I am missing out on fossils opening it a wet clay because I can't split many thin layers, but splitting it in when dry it seems to crumble. Trying to figure

    Fossilized Wood?

    Found in a river bed along with several other fossilized (Jasper\Agate) items and glacier till. River is on the edge of the drift less area in southern WI. Some pictures have a smaller rock (6 CM x 3 CM) for reference. Thank you for looking. Iroh...

    Petrified wood ?

    Hello I just want to know if these two samples are petrified wood ? They are both from Bolivia . Pictures 1&2 are one sample front and back . Pictures 3&4 are another sample front and back .

    Fossil wood?

    I wonder what do you think about this opalized ironstone https://www.mindat.org/photo-1239325.html can it be a wood?
  19. Hello there! I was looking around the Fossil ID sections and saw a post about a piece of petrified wood which looks very close to this unidentified bit I found on a beach in Calvert Cliffs state park in Maryland. Does anyone have any information that can definitively classify this as petrified wood? Thanks in advance!

    Petrified wood?

    Wondering if this is petrified wood and if so, what would cause the strange texture? Found in north central Nebraska where I have found many other pieces that actually look like wood. Thanks

    Is this petrified wood?

    Sorry for spamming the forum! I've been constantly rock and fossil hunting and I have yet another question. I found this in Eastern Europe (Romania) next to a river. Is this petrified wood? Thank you!
  22. Hello, I've recently collected some fossil wood from the London Clay. However, I have heard that it is prone to pyrite 'disease'. I've cleaned the wood with water, and plan to keep them with packets of silica gel to reduce humidity. Will this be enough to prevent pyrite oxidation occuring? I've just attached some photos of some of the wood that it can be seen on. There is also this white-coloured material on this bone. Is that anything to be concerned about? Many thanks

    Limonite or petrified wood?

    I found these in a forest in Germany. What are they? Petrified wood? Or just a rock/limonite? Thank you.

    Wood or Clam?

    I lost my kayak anchor and found a rock to use for the rest of the day. When I was loading back up I noticed the markings on it. I thought it was a piece of petrified wood but once I cleaned it up it kind of looks like a clam. Any ideas? This was found in middle Tennessee.

    Is this fossil wood?

    Is this fossil wood or something else. New to Iding fossils. Two sides of the same piece. Found in coastal south Carolina. Thanks!
