  1. Petrified wood or plant?

    I found this in New York. It appears to be petrified wood. I polished it, unwittingly realizing it was some sort of fossil. Can anyone help identify what it is? It is about 1" in size.
  2. Hi folks, Thank you for accepting my registration. I found this in Cumbria (Lake District), UK. The rock is a type of slate but not as flakey. It breaks up quite easily and usually has fractures running through it which can be prised open with a bit of effort. I'm not sure what I'm really looking at to be honest as it maybe a fossil or it maybe an artifact from splitting. Thank you for looking and hope to hear your thoughts. Ant
  3. So yeah as the title says decided to go here the day before my birthday to hunt for some plant fossils was good fun only found the one outcrop...umm yeah and thought I would share it with you guys also good piece of advice if you go here bring consolidate with you and wear wellies.
  4. The Green River Formation is one of the most well-known fossil sites in the world, occupying present-day Colorado, Utah and Wyoming. This Lagerstätte has been noted for its well-preserved fish fossils, as well as numerous invertebrates, plants, and sometimes even reptiles and birds. Green River fossils are Eocene-aged, at 53.5 to 48.5 million years old. Thankfully, not only are Green River fossils attractive, they also remain affordable to the casual collector. Allow me to present my humble collection. Crocodile tooth Borealosuchus sp. Southwest Wyoming Water bird tracks (possibly sandpipers or plovers) Presbyorniformipes feduccii Vernal, Utah Bird feather Aves indet. Southwest Wyoming Crane flies & Mosquitoes Pronophlebia rediviva & Culex sp. Parachute Creek Member; Douglas Pass, Colorado
  5. The winner of the April 2018 IPFOTM goes to...the Euproops Xiphosuran from the Late Carboniferous of Piesberg quarry, near Osnabrück, Germany! Congrats to @paleoflor!
  6. Is this a Plant Fossil?

    Hi, I'm new to this forum and I'm a rock collector/hunter and found this interesting sandstone rock on the beach on the Gulf Coast of Florida. At first I thought the rock was engraved with the letter "L", but after further examination it appears to be impressions in the rock. What I thought was real cool is on the top of the "L" there is hair or fibers sticking out of it. Can anyone please help me identify this specimen???? Thanks so much.
  7. I found this while digging in my yard, early this morning. Can't say how long it could have possibly been there, I must note the previous owners did have an abundance of river rock brought in for decoration over a decade ago. The piece itself was about 15 inches down. It looked cool on the surface but when I took my loupe to it I found some interesting markings. I don't know if I'm looking at perhaps crinoid stems, plant parts, or an interesting geologic concretion? Thank you for your help.
  8. Fern? (Update: Triarthrus beckii)

    Found this on a Lake Champlain beach, looks like a fern but any info would be great!
  9. Horn coral or calamite?

    I found these two fossils at my camp in munising, Michigan thinking that they were horn coral fossils. But now I am having doubts and am thinking they might be calamite fossils (or some sort of plant fossil).
  10. No opinion

    Hi everybody! Who can recognize what's that? Carboniferous, probably plant.
  11. Upper Devonian of NY

    Here are just a few of the fossils I find in the Upper Devonian of New York State. The site I found these specimens at is unpublished and unknown to collectors. Some of the rare things I have found - fish skull, phyllocarid, branchiopods, and perfectly preserved cephalopods. The large orthocone is very rare in this formation and I know of only one that was found according to old publications on this unit. I have found fossil logs several feet long that had to stay in the field. I have to pack food, water, tools, and more a 2-3 miles to the location so I'm limited as to how much I can carry back to my truck. Thanks
  12. Strange stone

    Hi i am new here Registred because found this stone With some strange stone attached to it It has cymetrical biological shape I will apriciate if some one can commet on what it is Regards
  13. I’ve been running into some cool fossils at my study site in southeastern Ohio recently and thought I’d share some photos. This is deep in the hills of southeastern Ohio and most fossils I’ve seen in the area are weathered sandstone casts/impressions of Lepidodendron/Sigillaria trunks/bark in stream beds. Interestingly, these fossils seem to be clustered in 20-50 meter stream stretches. Pictures below are from one such stream stretch in the lower lying part of the ravine where some chert and limestone start showing up with the sandstone. I would love any additional information folks can provide on these rocks as many are too worn/indistinct. Also, does chert/flint ever contain fossils? The last picture is of a big chunk of chert (I think) that looked like petrified wood sort of to me. I will get around to posting some other/better ones from this area later! image2 by Andrew Hoffman, on Flickr image3 by Andrew Hoffman, on Flickr image4 by Andrew Hoffman, on Flickr image5 by Andrew Hoffman, on Flickr image6 by Andrew Hoffman, on Flickr image1 by Andrew Hoffman, on Flickr
  14. Unknown from Port Mulgrave

    Hi, We found this at Port Mulgrave today and are not sure what this is? Can anyone help? Sorry if this is obvious but we are new to fossils and do not have a lot of experience.
  15. Ancient Sea plant?

    This looks like a fossil, but I'm not sure. Need your expertise to identify.
  16. ID please on a seed ?

    I any ideas on this set of small fossil from Torres Vedras, Portugal. They on a website for sale Thank you cheers Bobby
  17. I keep hearing about Penn/Miss sites near the GA/AL border, and seeing that my collection is severely lacking, I am dying to find a formation exposure that isn't on the opposite end of the globe from where I am. I found some hope of finding a place with this scholarly article on NW GA (though it's an article that's older than my grandparents): https://epd.georgia.gov/sites/epd.georgia.gov/files/related_files/site_page/B-62.pdf 2 formations stuck out from what I could make of it from my first quick skim: • Vandever Formation • Rockcastle Formation These two appear to produce some pretty nice Penn. flora. Would love to go and hunt these formations for their treasures! Locations and availability information? Thanks in advance!
  18. ice age?

    Found in an ancestral Mississippi river channel deposit, Deposit is around 50,000 years old. Specimen is completely mineralized. I don't see much material like this, and any thing I offer would be a total guess. Opinions?

  20. Fungi, Algae, Chert?

    Fungi, Algae, Chert? Location: SE Portage County, Central Wisconsin, USA. Geology: South Western advance of Green Bay Glacial Lobe. Former Glacial Lake Oshkosh. Niagara Escarpment Debris. My land. Ordovician onward. Size: 5 cm by 7.25 cm by 4 cm. Needing lots of help on this one. Different than most of my finds. Have been told it could be fungi, algae or just a rock. Texture is waxy in parts with crystals in others. Looks like a mushroom, but looks can always deceive. Comments appreciated on what it might be and era. Thank you. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4783/40769961972_1401c223fe_z.jpg[/img]f1[/url] rul 1 rul 2 rul 2 rul 2 rul 4 rul 4 rul 4 rul 4 schroom 1 schroom 1 schroom 1 by Fernwood Acres, on Flickr schroom 5 schroom 6 rul 3
