  1. Hi everyone! I'm new to fossil hunting and I found a few interesting rocks underneath Sea Cliff Bridge near Wollongong in Australia. There was a lot of coal in the area for context. I will attach some photos of the rocks I found, I'm particularly interested in the small white (quartz??) lines intersecting the black part of the stone. Any help would be hugely appreciated! Thanks
  2. Hi all, would love your thoughts on what this might be. Found it in Tamala limestone aka Coastal Limestone that dates back to the Pleistocene Age. The circular parts about 1" in diameter.
  3. I'm so sorry, but I have no location since it was bought in a store :[ It measures 70x15x02 (mm) Any guesses on what it could be?

    Petrified Wood or Just Rock?

    Found this in South Dakota with other petrified wood. I’m just wondering if this piece is for sure petrified wood, or just a rock? Thank you!
  5. If this topic was posted in the wrong place feel free to pull out the whips and chains. These are being found at deposit of petrified wood in south Alabama. Silicification strata sure looks favorable in situ-clay, then 1 foot of wet sand and rounded quartzite, then the wood. No limb nots, most of it has straight parallel bands like a vascular plant. Occasionally some samples with annual rings. Complete logs are rare, most are segments from 5 to 50 pounds. It seems related to Tallahatta silicified sand(stone). And it seems to have silicified grey sand in it.

    wood rose arizona

    From the album: fossil wood

    giant slice of fossil wood with pink and brown color. Pink, as I think, is rare..., have not seen many of them. This comes from Arizona, near petrified forest, from an old collection. Size is around 80 cm, this is nearly 34"

    Bores/burrows in (what?) from Louisana

    This just fell into my lap, but I'm having a hard time telling exactly what it is. Seems to have been burrowed in by clams? Worms? Somethingorother. Not my area of expertise, so I rely on y'all. Found in northwestern Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana. Sorry for the lack of scale, but I assure you, those are standard-sized human hands. First four photos are outside, last one is a straight-through cut. Any ideas? Appreciate the help as always!

    Isle of Wight finds - ID help needed

    Hi everyone! I travelled to the Isle of Wight during the long weekend of April we just had and found some interesting things. Everything below was found in the south part of Shanklin beach. I'm sorry I did not include a scale in the pictures, but they are all around 10 cm. Thanks for you help :-)
  9. Hi everyone, this is Matt again. Today in the creek, I found this large wood fossil . Here is a photo:
  10. I do not consider myself a rock or fossil enthusiast, but whenever I am out and about I will pick up interesting rocks I find. I also try and pick up a rock or stick from different places I visit. So, I was doing some landscaping a few years back, and went to the local rock yard to pick up some step stones and flowerbed rocks. I came across this interesting slab that had something embedded in it, so I took it home and made a natural bench out of it. Whenever friends come over, I joke that it's my Ancient Alien Artifact. I am just wondering if anyone can give me more information on it. Is

    what kind of wood fossil is this ?

    Hi everyone this is Matt again. In the creek today, I found a fossil that looked like wood. Can anyone tell me what kind of wood it could be ? Here is a photo:

    Pyrite dimples with fossilised wood

    Another find from Saltwick Bay, this time very recent. I'm guessing that the main chunk is fossilised wood of some sort, but I'm stumped by the small (~1cm diameter) patch of pyrite that exhibits very regular dimples (see images 1 & 2). Any ideas?

    Petrified…bone? Wood?

    I found this curious item in a wild space at the back of our house in London. Around 20cm long, initially thought it looked like a bone. But then picking it up was very heavy for its size, have weighed it as 1.75kg. Looks sort of like a bone from certain angles, but maybe more likely to be petrified wood? What do people think? Very curious to know what it looks like if sliced open. Would that be advised? How would one go about having that done?
  15. Its taken at least 12 years or more for this project but its just about complete. (I built this big master bedroom from the ground up). Complete enough to finally put the fossil wood bench under the big window in my bedroom. Got the carpet installed yesterday. Looks purty dang good. Now waiting for all the new furniture coming in 2 weeks.

    Tooth, bone, wood?

    Hello - new here to the forum - found this on manasota beach in Florida while looking for shark teeth. Does anyone know what it is?
  17. These were collected in a central Pennsylvanian stream. (Altoona Pennsylvania) The long ones is close to finger length (please don't tell me it's a finger bone haha) and the smaller is about 3/4 inch. Any help identifying would be appreciated.

    Chromium Petrified Wood?!?!

    Hey all! I haven’t posted in a long time but I was too excited about this. I absolutely love petrified wood. I love the colours, the rings, the detail! My wonderful husband bought me this AMAZING piece of petrified wood from a local rock shop. I took it home, gave it a bath and a good scrub. It’s green! Now I've heard about the chromium petrified wood from Arizona but I have NO idea where this one came from. It’s super heavy at 25.7lbs!! I absolutely adore this piece and even if it isn’t chromium wood, it’s definitely stunning!

    Petrified wood

    Hello all, I feel like this is a stretch but I'm wondering if anyone can help ID this petrified wood slab based on its appearance? I got this back when I wasn't keen on age/locality so unfortunately don't have any other information. Its diameter is about 100-120mm across. I know some types of petrified wood such as the Arizona rainbow petrified wood or Palm wood have characteristic appearances so perhaps this one looks like something?
  20. Found this piece of fossilized wood on Myrtle Beach 4 years ago. Reminds me of bamboo. It’s 7 inches long. Wondering if anybody knows their plant life well enough to identify it. Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Typically cretaceous or pleistocene era. Ped Dee formation. Thanks!
  21. 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.
  22. 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.

    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.

    Myrtle Beach find - wood? tusk?

    Found on Myrtle Beach Jan 18, 2022. Feels and looks like fossilized wood. No "marrow" type stipling so not bone. Looking from the round cut-off end, darker black on the outside, lighter color on the inside. That coloring threw me. Thought it was bone but now that strange color just wanted me to double check this wasn't some kind of animal tusk or horn. Thanks! Paula
