  1. ID Help

    Need help identifying this. Some say it's a regular rock formation. Others insist that it's a petrified bone. "Distal phalange" from a large animal was one person's guess. It's about 3 inches long. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
  2. Identerfiying this fossil

    Another fossil my son found.not sure if its plant or animal. It also looks to contain gold in the middle, well so he hopes:)
  3. An item with an XRF for a possible ID

    Hi, my name is Nathalie, I'm the owner of the attached item. I have no idea what it is and have been looking for a long time for some ideas on the subject. It was in Tibet at some point, but cannot be originated from that country with certainty, it could be from anywhere really. There is also an XRF (Tibet.xls) of the item attached a friend in my family did in case it helps (sommet-1.jpg). I am a total noob on the fossil field and wondering if any of you has seen anything related so I can start research and understand what it is. On one of the visuals, I have isolated redundancies that seemed interesting, Will be grateful if one of you guys know what it is, Sending regards, N. Tibet.xlsx
  4. What's that - plant or animal?

    My little son ist asking. It's limestone or flint. I'm not sure. Found at the beach, Baltic Sea. Plant or animal (or else)? Thank you!
  5. It's definitely a..thing?

    Look guys I have a... well its definitely a something? Is it a plant, the top of a crinoid, a broken tooth, a really tiny volcano??? No idea. And as a bonus I have no idea where it came from either. It was given to me ages when I was a kid. So if you've got any ideas on what the heck it might be, I'd love to hear 'em! Thanks!
  6. Found on beach at Seaham

    Hello and thanks for letting me join ,i live in Yorkshires have access to some very nice areas for collecting .My wife and i collect seaglass and go to Seaham near Sunderland quite often .We comb the beach and are mainly focused on the beach area for tiny pieces of glass ,however to anyone who knows this area it has a lot of stones and rocks ,at the hide tide/seawall area ,the rocks can be 7/8 feet deep and that's for very long lengh. So that's the area ,and occasionally i do find an interesting pebble ,but generally nothing Fossil wise . The enclosed pictures are of a Fossil i found a while ago and i really don't know what it is ,as any search for Fossil's from this area never brings anything up that is similar ,i personally have never seen another like it ever .I do appreciate it is more than likely nothing unusual as such ......maybe not a fossil at all ,just a pebble ...but that then asks the question ...why have i never seen one like it anywhere along that area...look forward to enlightenment ,many thanks .Steve.

  10. My big old fish

    The fossil forum members identified this fish years ago but I lost that information due to a computer crash. I can remember they thought it came from Brazil? and had an age attached to it. I found it at an estate sale in Racine WI. in the basement of the house. The owner said it had been in that corner when he purchased the house and was more than happy for me to take it out of his way. I think it is very interesting but would like more information. Thank you
  11. Plant or animal ID request

    I purchased a clump of rocks from a seller stating "rocks from NY fossil beds". I prepped the "rocks" and found some trilobite pieces and this. Is this a plant or animal?
  12. Idea for next Fossil

    This is a small collection I have for my granddaughter for when she gets older. I’m limited to getting my fossils from antique shops or online except for the arrowheads. What would be something else to pick up for her that’s maybe in a different time frame or different then what I have. My budget it limited only getting one check a month so can’t spend a fortune. Ideas??
  13. Fossil Id Help Surface Find Texas

  15. Mystery fossil discs

    Hello again. I have several of these strange fossil discs. I cannot find tags for them in the boxes of minerals and fossils recently acquired. Possibly some sort of jellyfish? sea sponge? Any help with ID is of course always appreciated!
  16. Friend needs ID help

    A friend found this near Sonora, TX. No idea what it is, any help would be much appreciated. I do not know age or formation as of yet. Thanks
  17. Jaw bone

    Dug this up in about 2 feet of sand around a pond in cat tails. I thought raccoon but it doesn’t have front teeth. Can you help identify please, thank you. It was found in Florida.
  18. Jaw bone

    We found this jaw bone about 2 ft in depth around a pond that was dug out. I looked up raccoon which seemed to be obvious but it doesn’t have any front teeth. Can you help out by identifying? Thank you. I’m pretty sure it’s not very old. I'm just having a hard time identifying it. Thank you.
  19. Is this bone a fossil?

    Hi, I am new to the forum and was wondering if someone could help me identify this bone I found and if it is, in fact, a fossil. I found this in South Bend Indiana in an area where drainage water runs through to a pond. I usually hunt this area for "fossilized coral", but today I found this bone literally just lying on the ground. I have found bones in this area before, but this one is different. It is rock hard and heavy. I was thinking at first it might be waterlogged but the bone isn't brittle at all and looking at the top of the bone, it appears to be rock (as evidenced by the picture). The bone is 9 1/2 inches (24 cm), very smooth, and non-porous except for the first 2 inches (5cm) of the bone which feels rougher but doesn't appear to be porous. I hope I have given enough information and the picts are acceptable. If not, I will give more info and take more picts as needed. Thank you.
  20. Heart?

    I have a real small rock that resembles a heart. The valves seem to be in the right place, and it has a heart like shape. I found it in a creek in central Iowa. What do you think about it? It would have to be from something small.
  21. Petrified Human Part?

    I found what seems to be a fossilized human body part, not sure though. It seems to be something, but not quite sure what. Do you think it's just rock? It is rock, but do you think it's a fossilized human part? A museum I sent a picture to said it was just a rock, but I don't know if they would really want to tell me.
  22. Looks like a squid!

    Hi All, This fossil is about 1" long, 3/8" wide and 3/16" thick. Found in Dallas Texas after a rain just peeking through the soil. Any help identifying it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Brever
