  1. North central indiana

    While digging a new pond this fell out of the bucket. It is 15 in long, 8 in wide, 3 in thick. Very heavy. Will try to get good pics. Thanks Hope
  2. My son found several, hopefully, fossils in Sugar Creek in Turkey Run park in Indiana. He would like to know if they actually are fossils and of what. We are pretty sure the first one is a tooth. But have no clue about the other ones. Tree bark? Some sort of plant? Thank you for any help.
  3. Again I'm not sure what kind of bark this is? Found on old mine pit in Gelsenkirchen. Thanks!
  4. Is this fossilized tree bark? Help please

    Need help identifying what I'm guessing is Fossilized tree bark I found On banks of Yellowstone River. Erosion this year is nuts. More just this spring than I've seen in 33 years of Spring flood erosion.
  5. ID Wood, Iron, bones in MD?

    New to the sport. Found these yesterday at Calvert Cliffs and along the Potomac River. Big debate was weather the largest piece was bark that had been replaced by iron of if it was just a clump of iron from the bog. Several larger pieces observed on site in the cliffs and on the beach- some said they were wood; other just "bog iron". Please critique or help with id. Thank you.
  6. Mystery Tree, Bark and Leaves!

    Hi, I found these in the Carbonado Formation Washington State. 42 - 47 million years ago. Eocene under a coal seam. I found this bark of some mysterious looking tree. Around the same rock were tons of leaves, all similar to one species (except one leaf which I will also include). I am hoping people can identify the family of tree for me. I also am posting some strange "cattail" / "horsetail" like stem / leaf because this could possibly be a branch from this tree. disclaimer: I am still trying to figure out my phone. The last photo is more clear, larger and detailed. The only difference was, I held my phone sideways. Maybe this is what I will do in the future. First I will post the bark
  7. Tree Bark from Eocene ID

    I needed help identifying this tree bark. Its about 38 million years old from the Renton Formation in Western Washington State. I can see insect burrow marks but they could also be the details in the tree itself. Its about 12 inches long and 5 ish inches wide
  8. Good evening to everyone, I am really very new to fossils and petrified items so I am at a loss as to what I may have and I need your help. My grandfather left me this piece when he passed away a few months ago and it was marked "Petrified Mushroom". I have included some photos for your review and if you have any questions please let me know. The mushroom, for lack of a better word, is about 22" long by 14" deep by about 3/8" in height. It weighs just about 74 grams and has a spot in the middle that looks like wood, it looks like it was cut or removed from a piece of wood maybe a tree. Any help anyone could provide would be extremely appreciated. If this is the wrong forum to ask about my item I deeply apologize, just let me know and I will remove the post right away. Thank you again and I hope everyone has a great week.
  9. Hi everyone. I recently visited a quarry at the north of Spain (more specifically a geographical area called "El Bierzo", famous for its fossils from the carboniferous era) and I found this one, which looks like tree bark with some particular marks. I have found several well preserved fossils at the same quarry but I will upload the pictures later. I have been looking for information about this one in particular but I haven't found out what type of tree it is, has anybody seen this before? Thank you very much!
  10. Today I figured that I would crack open a couple dozen concretions to see if there was anything of interest. Hitting them with a hammer is not the preferred practice, but I have so many that I could never freeze / thaw them in 2 lifetimes. The concretions that I opened today were collected from Pit 4, mostly flora and fresh water fauna are found at that location. Today I found the run of the mill ferns, leaves and a couple very pretty pieces of bark.
  11. Found on Cape Jack Beach Nova Scotia. I have 3 more like this. Stigmaria Root? I have one I know is an imprint.. but is this one a fossilized piece of root or an imprint? Would love any insight! Thanks in advance. I have more pictures but they are 3mb each.. Can I post more?
  12. Tree Bark? Coal Mine Exposure

    Might be a case of pareidolia but these oddly shaped rocks resemble something... First to me looks like tree bark. (is it real?) Second i have no idea what it looks like (most likely just a weird way the rock broke) [Found in Kanawha County WV, Dunkard Group]
  13. Scale Tree

    Kathleen B. Pigg of the University of Arizona notes that this "stem subsurface pattern that is sometimes called 'rabbit tracks'. The double track you see is probably a result of a pair of air channels that accompany the leaf trace through the cortex. The vertical ribs are produced by an increase of bark through secondary tissue production." The pair of sepicemns in the first image are the positive and negative impressions of the same piece. The second image is a detail from the same specimen.

  19. Greetings from Carbondale!

    This week we found ourselves headed for Carbon County, PA and looked up some places to go hunting. St. Clair was out, but there were some references to Carbondale here and there. As the name suggests, Carbondale was a coal mining town. There are active and inactive areas all over town, much of it fossiliferous. The most popular spot seems to be the one we went to, a tailings pile next to an apartment complex off of Westside Rd. The land status is unknown, but there were was nothing posted, so we ventured in as many have done before us. Our directions said to follow the gravel path between the third and fourth buildings on the right, then bear left and continue to the en of the ravel road, where you'd see a "mountain of tailings." When we parked, I looked from side to side for a pile I expected to be maybe the size of a van. From behind me, I hear my husband say, "Oh, that mountain of tailings." I looked from side to side. No, her told me, look straight ahead and up. Oh! It was indeed a mountain! The pile loomed above the rich grove. How did I miss that? (On a return trip a couple days later, I noticed it also loomed over the apartments!) A narrow trail leads through the woods to a meadow and a bare section of wall just asking to be explored. April was the perfect time to go as all the weeds were down from the winter snows and not yet regrowing much. The trees growing from the wall itself provided just enough footing for me to climb without sliding back down - until I wanted to. Whee! Once I reached the wall, it took me only seconds to spot my first bit of Calamities bark, and then another, and then a complete, 3D stalk section! After about an hour of searching I spotted a limb sticking put of the fine slate crumbs and pulled it out. It was a chunk of Calamites stalk as big as my outstretched hand. I spent a total of about 5 hours over two days scrabbling across a sheer wall of loose shale. Ferns! Leaves! Roots! Seeds! Bark of all different textures! Some of the ferns were incredibly detailed. One had all the miniscule veins outlined in red (pyrite?), while others were just extremely fine impressions in the grey rock. As it turns out, the gravel road itself runs across an overgrown tailings pile. Here and there you can find exposed rock, including bark plates bigger than dinner dishes! After spending what felt like an hour on day 2 (It turned out to be three hours!!!) I decided it was time for lunch and slid down the hill like a little kid. There at the base of the hill, was mu find for the week: a whole section of tree(?) trunk with bark all the way around the specimen. It was lying alone in the woods on some leaves, just waiting for someone to wander off the beaten path. I debated about bringing it home. It was so big! Hubby was snoozing on a nearby rock. Rocks are not his thing and bringing home piles of them doubly so, but he is so sweet that he picked that heavy thing up before I could blink and carried it to the car himself. He's a keeper! It will take quite some time to photograph all my treasures, but I will post in the comments here when I have an album together.
  20. Small carbon film leaf scars

    This is Pennsylvanian age Mazon Creek type material found in Indiana. Not sure if even a genus can be assigned to this piece let alone a species but I thought it was worth letting you guys have a look.This appears to be outer bark with small carbon film leaf scars overlying exposed patches of inner bark. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
  21. Hello Forum, Recently, I acquired the petrified wood specimen (probably maple, Acer sp.) below at a local mineral show. It comes from the Holleywood Ranch in Linn County, Oregon. The broader area, well known for its petrified wood, is often referred to as "Sweet Home", or the Sweet Home Petrified Forest. According to Gregory (1968), the petrified wood is derived from some Miocene age subunit of the Little Butte Volcanic Series (details not entirely clear to me). I really liked the specimen because it shows a structure that I would interpret as the phloem (see this and this website). Though dependent on your definition of the term, this would mean part of the bark is preserved (quite rare, in my experience). Below the photo is an annotated micrograph of the region indicated in the overview. Does my interpretation make sense? Is this really wood (secondary xylem) plus the bark? I would also like to know why the last growth ring(s) of secondary xylem would stick to the bark? I can imagine the latter swelling up and becoming loose as the wood (waterlogged) was underwater for some time, but why not de-bond at the cambium then? Thanks for your feedback! Tim (micrograph made as follows)
  22. Found these today also. Fossil wood??
  23. Found this in my favorite spot. Too large for me to carry out on my own, and not certain if it is worthwhile to keep? Any way, any idea what it is?
  24. Well im heading down to Mazon creek in a few weeks. Forum members Digit (Ken) and Rob Russell should be meeting me down there. I think we're going to dig the Park, but it's still up in the air. Feel free to join us on our hunt, it would be nice to finally meet some members! Things to bring. -bug spray and/or tick spray -shovel, gardening claw, rock hammer or pick-axe -water, snacks, etc. -bucket/s (big or small) -backpack to help carry everything -gloves -cake it will be Ken's Birthday!!! ^^^^Feel free to add to the list^^^^ Again it's June 7 th 2014. 9 a.m. exit 236 on I55 Coal City exit @ the Shell station on Johnson rd Rte.113.
