  1. Round rocks

    Strange round rocks here in Elgin, TX. I just joined yesterday and trying to figure out how to post here. Thanks for having me. I've found so much cool stuff here since arriving from VA in2018. #rocknerdsrock
  2. Hey guys, I saw this listed as a dinosaur egg with developing dinosaur. I have heard that dinosaur eggs with developing dinosaurs are extremely expensive so I am a little skeptical about this. Any thoughts on it?
  3. Tortoise Egg

    I'm trying to determine how long it takes for something like this to happen to a tortoise egg. Years, decades, hundreds of years? I found this Gopher Tortoise egg in the South Georgia/North Florida area. It is about the size of a ping pong ball, heavy and solid. It had been washed up in the rain and was found in soil that consists of a lot of sand, peat and clay. The egg appears "fossilized" or "petrified" for lack of a better term. The shell is firm and porcelain-like with a lot of scratches. I candled the egg to show where the air sack appears to remain after staining itself into place and confirms it was an infertile egg. I can share a video link I have of the egg if it would be helpful and allowed.
  4. Hello guys . I need some help. I just bought some eggs (i think) they were not to expensive so i had to take the risk before someone else got them I will try to post them one at a time Thanks in advance
  5. Help needed with this spherical object

    Afternoon all. Found this little stone amongst the gravel on the driveway. We've found many fossils in the gravel including Belemnites, shells etc. But we've never seen anything like this. The surface is fairly smooth but you can feel slight 'pitting'. The inner material is coarse and hard, with a similarity to sandstone. The object is about 3cm in all directions, and almost spherical. Any help would be appreciated.
  6. Fossil Egg

    Greetings. I'm new to this forum. I could use some help in identifying what I found while I was walking a dried creek bed today. In researching what I've found on the internet, I came up with possible fossilized dino egg. Could it be? Thanks! Tony Holmes
  7. Hey guys, I saw this listed as a oviraptor egg, seller claims to have taken it to a museum to have it examined. This looks a little different from other oviraptor eggs I have seen and I don’t really see signs of embryo. I would appreciate any input on it. It was found in Texas
  8. River Fossil England?

    Hello, I was walking by a river in Cheadle (Manchester England), when I found this - I thought that perhaps it is a fossilised bird egg and my son and I were very excited that we had potentially found something quite old? I would be very grateful if anyone could give more information - I did a bit of digging myself but only managed to become more confused. My 10-year-old and his mummy would be very grateful if you could share a bit of knowledge and expertise. Thank you!
  9. Hello everyone! I'm here cause I've found this fossil in a vintage store before this pandemic..the owner of the store claims to have acquired it from a prestigious auction house.. and I would love to understand if it's real or fake.. he doesn't have so much information besides the dimensions of it.. 11cm H x 15cm W x 13cm D I would love to identify it! Thank you in advance and stay safe! Thanks
  10. Hello, I was out walking for exercise during lockdown in the fields and found this egg like fossil on the surface. The farmer had been excavating topsoil from a ploughed field and using it to resurface a farm track. I have no idea what it is, could it possibly be a fossilized egg? I didn't realise finding stuff in fields was this exciting! Apoligies if the images are not up to standard. The outer material is red/orange, the inner material is dark grey Approx 2.8 CM Length, 2.1 CM Width, 1.3 CM Depth Thank You
  11. Spheroolithus egg?

    A local seller has a few for sale, I'm interesting in adding a second egg to my collection but know eggs, especially Chinese eggs, can often be pretty shady. Seller sent some closer photos than what is on his site. Egg 1 --Quite poor quality, so I will not be buying, but I have attached a pic in case it helps prove authenticity of others and has a tape measure showing overall size. Egg 2 - Top and bottom image. (Price tag is NOT USD by the way! I'm not about to splash almost 2 grand on it. Egg 3 - Seems to be not too good--lacking shell or lots of matrix, to my untrained eye. Egg 2 and 3 together -- a side by side comparison. Thanks for your help.
  12. Fossilised egg?

    Found on Beach bear Antalya Turkey.
  13. Hey guys, I saw this egg listed as fossilized dinosaur egg, I wasn’t really sure because eggs usually crystallize after being fossilized. I would appreciate your input. Thanks
  14. Fossil identification

    Need help identifying this. Im pretty sure its a dinosaur egg. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
  15. Hi all! First of all I can’t believe I’m posting an is it an egg question LOL! But I was going through some Texas Permian matrix I just received and danged if this doesn’t seem like a piece of egg shell... but there’s no way I’d be lucky enough to find a piece of Permian egg so I’m betting it’s bone but still.... sorry for another egg topic but I gotta know! Thanks guys and gals!
  16. Dinosaur egg?

    Is this a dinosaur egg? Here are some pictures taken with my cellphone: https://imgur.com/a/br5GeUM I found it at my friend's house when I was a kid. It was probably around the mid-90's. If still I remember correctly, I found it mixed in with other rocks on the edge of their driveway or something. Their house was in the Santa Cruz Mountains, Bay Area, California but the "egg" may have been brought in with other rocks. It is slightly egg shaped and about 3.75 x 3.5 x 1.5 inches (9.5 x 9 x 4 cm). It weighs 11 oz (310 g). The inside looks a lot like an egg white, yolk and small embryo forming in the center. The "egg white" varies from about 0.5 - 1 in (1.25 - 2.5 cm) thick, the "egg yolk" is 2.125 +/- 0.125 in (5.4 +/- 0.3 cm) in diameter and the "embryo" is about 0.25 x 0.125 in (6 x 3 mm). The "egg white" feels slightly rough like concrete and the "egg yolk" and "embryo" feels very smooth like fired, glazed ceramic or obsidian. On the outside, there are 4 scratches that appear to be from something with a claw that had 3 small and 1 larger nail. The scratch from the large nail is about 0.06 in (2mm) deep. There also appears to be a claw or tooth shaped object embedded in the "egg white". It is cone shaped about 0.5 in (1.25 cm) long and the top is oval shaped measuring about 0.5 x 0.375 in (1.25 x 1 cm). By the 3 small nails, it almost appears as if something pierced into the "egg yolk" and left a mark seen in the pictures above that is about 1.25 x 0.25 in (3 x 0.6 cm) in length and width. The outside feels like the "egg white" but a bit more smooth like concrete that has been walked on for years. Thanks for your time!
  17. is it a Dinosaur Egg ?

    Hi all, Dear experts, first of all I would like to acknowledge to everyone that keeps the Fossil forum alive ! It's awesome. Secondly, I would like to share with you what I have here, I took this egg shape rock ( at least I think it is a rock) back in Brazil, Peruibe close to Jureia Ecological State- when I was kayaking in 1989-1990 ....since them I've been carrying it with me and I always thought if someone could tell me if it is a dinosaur egg or just a rock. If someone can give me an expert opinion I would really appreciate. Thank you, Claudio
  18. Hey guys, I saw this listed as a therizinosaurus egg, I have very little experience with Dino eggs but I think it’s real. What do you guys think?
  19. I'd please possible embryo???

    Please help identify. This came from a collection that was left with me from old friend who moved away..it was his father's we live in Calif desert could be Arizona or actually not sure. There was a dinosaur bone in collection I had identified at rock and gem show as possible whale or dinosaur. Had cellular structure
  20. Possible fossilized egg -

    Hello! I found this possible egg in Ulster County NY today! Does any one have any insight?
  21. 3D embryonic dinosaur

    A nice easter surprise "In a new study, researchers scanned two Massospondylus carinatus dinosaur embryos first found in 1976 in South Africa’s Golden Gate Highlands National Park. They used synchrotron scanning, which is a kind of 3D X-ray scan. " https://www.inverse.com/science/dinosaur-embryo-3d-scan https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-020-60292-z
  22. Possible Fossil Egg - Scotland

    Happy Easter to everybody and hopefully you can help identify the following: Found a 2 " egg shaped object, Penicuik, Midlothian, Scotland in a field which has had a small hole previously drilled on one side. The egg object is hollow inside and the shell is about 2mm thick and feels like solid rock and sounding when tapped. The item has various minute cracking across its surface as shown by the attached photographs. I have also tried to show the hole and depth of cavity using a dart inserted into the object. It appears too clean an object to be a fossilized egg, however, how did the cracking and cavity occur if it is indeed a rock? Any help appreciated and stay safe, regards, Paul (newbie)
  23. So, as a 12-year old fascinated with fossils, dinosaurs, etc. I found this and assumed it was a fossil egg. As I am much older, I tend to think more of a concretion, but the shape, and little kid in me says "yolk" but the adult says concretion. Again, found in St. Louis county along creek. Interesting none-the less?........... stay healthy! Bone
  24. I bought this egg from years ago Do you think this egg from henan is genuine? I'm concerned about the texture that seems too glossy IF this egg is real May I know this egg ID? Thank you in advance for your help.
  25. Hi all. Newbie Jeff here. I’m a collector of sorts and come across all sorts of odd items on a regular basis. I recently came across something that was immediately suspect to me. It may just be a rock but I’ll lay out the scenario of how I got it and then you can check out the pics and maybe someone out there can point me in the right direction. I got a literal truckload of home decor, knock knacks etc for free. Ended up being 11 large storage bins full of all sorts of south/Central American folk and native art, various antiques, housewares etc. I can tell you nothing I’ve found in this lot is cheap. I opened a lidded yankee candle that was a bit heavier than it should have been and found this little piece of curiosity wrapped nicely and tucked inside it. I won’t be heartbroken if it isn’t legit, but there’s something unique about it and now I need to know. thanks in advance Jeffi
