  1. Baffled by this one.

    Found this in the Peace River in the spring and have been trying to find something to compare it to ever since. Haven't been able to find anything like it. It has the appearance of shell or coral. The color is a dull gray and it has the look and feel of metal. Don't know if it is any type of fossil or just a suggestive "something". If anyone has seen anything similar or has any idea what it is your input would be appreciated.
  2. SE Wisconsin

    Found this in Southeast Wisconsin. Help identifying would be appreciated! It's about 3" long 3" deep 2" tall triangular (ish) in shape. The back is very cool as well. Thank you.
  3. Missouri fossil of some kind

    Found this interesting rock at the creek today and was wondering what y'all can tell me about it? I can find cool stuff all day but I can't really tell y'all much about it. The little round thing in it is what I was most curious about, and I just figured it would be cool for you all to look at as well.
  4. Missouri Coral?

    So here is this rock that I thought looked similar to coral and is actually the rock that made me discover part of missouri was underwater at some point in history. Is this a piece of coral ? And if not can anybody tell me what it is ? I'm back and forth on this is it coral? or is it made of sediment? Or something else altogether?
  5. Please tell me those are fish!!! (One of my dream find fossils)Found this near downtown Lockhart believe it or not, I’m a little protective over the spot cuz I COULD get super specific on this one and it’s not very off the beaten path ...lol
  6. Sponge? Coral?

    Hi everyone, I found this in marine pliocene-pleistocene sediments. The rock is a sandstone with large cemented elements (pebbles and fragments of shells). What is that round object? It has an ornamentation made of small holes, fairly regular, under the surface the holes seem to widen into small chambers (as you can see in the broken point). Could it be a coral or a fossil sponge? Dimension of the round object: 40x25mm Thanks
  7. fossil from upstate ny

    a friend of mine found this fossil in upstate ny. my best guess is that it’s some sort of coral, but i’d love to hear other opinions! it’s about 10 inches by 7 inches by 6 inches. thanks in advance!!
  8. Is this a fossil?

    This is the second time I have found a piece of this. Is it a fossil? Found at Lee on the Solent in the south of England. The piece is about 2 inches long. Not particularly heavy but sounds like a stone when you knock it on a wooden table. Thank you for your help. Best wishes.
  9. Coral?

    A friend found this at a construction site in North Port Florida. I thought maybe coral but not sure. They have found shark's teeth in the same area.
  10. ID Help

    With winter finally over we took a drive over to Lake Michigan to look along the beach. We found a many of the typical corals. I spotted this interesting looking fossil in the surf and quickly retrieved it. As I looked at it more closely and saw the details I became more unsure of what it is. I'll add some closeups in the next post. Thanks.
  11. Rapp beach find

    Picked this up on the beach. @abyssunder suggested an earlier piece might be tabular coral. This is quite different, but similarly like a hard rock,but with arrays of aligned tubes, some broken or missing. Not something I see often here! First two photos are of the same side, with a broken shark tooth holding the surface more flat. Scale is in cm. Hopefully someone recognizes it and can guess an ID. Thanks.
  12. Mystery fossil

    Hello, I am only 13 but I have picked up a lot of fossils. I don't know what half of the fossils are. I hope you can help. I found this fossil on the Jebal Hafeet nountain in Al Ain, UAE. It is very small. I am curious as to what it is. It looks like some sort of coral. The area l found it in was known for its marine fossils. I also found several larger corals on the same mountain.
  13. Whats that ?

    What you guys think ? Its from eocene reefal complex.
  14. Pelee Island fossils

    Hey guys. I've been extremely ill, and missing my fossils. Staying with my mom for a while, she pulled out a box of fossils she found on the shore at Pelee Island, Canada on Lake Erie. It's near Cedar Point, and Port Clinton Ohio. Some I was able to identify for her, but I don't know these. I'm pretty sure one is just suggestive stone, and not a worn tooth, but I'll ask that one too for verification. First one looks like a cephalopod to me, but I am not familiar with this area's fossils. The second one is a vertebrae from something. The third is the one I'm pretty sure is just rock, but double checking. The last one, I just don't have a clue. More pictures coming in reply.
  15. Is it a fossil?

    I found this while I was walking through a creek on my families property in Ashland, OH. I took this into my geology professor and asked him what he thought it might be. He said that it might be a section from a piece of Horn Coral but that he also was not sure. Any insight would be helpful.
  16. Found in a river

    I found this in the sulphur river in North East Texas. It is covered in a thin, light grey layer layer of rock and the center is a glassy looking grey/tan material with vain like patterns and a scaley texture. It has a smooth bottom that looks like it might have been attached to a smooth surface. It was in the wall of the river about ten feet below ground level. It broke when I hit it with a metal tool while I was digging. Any help with identifying this would be great. I've had it for years and have not seen anything that looks quite like it.
  17. Echinoid? Coral?

    I'm not sure what this is. Looks like a little fossil cauliflower. Echinoid, coral, or neither? Sw Fl, pliocene. Any help appreciated.
  18. Are any of these coral?

    Was inspired to look through my "unknown" bits, was wondering if any of these 3 might be coral, or what they are if they're not. The bottom of the third one is covered in shell bits and not visible yet, but can add if you need. Thanks in advance! Sw Fl.
  19. I am a first time user and novice fossil hunter, so please excuse my lack of knowledge. I do not know what time period this comes from, although I believe most of what I find is from the Devonian period. I mainly look where I live (Big Rapids) and have pulled a number of these rocks out of my garden while preparing for spring planting or tilling down at the end of Fall. I typically find quite a few honeycomb and horn coral, which I can usually identify, but I have come across a number of items I am not sure of, one of which is below. Any help identifying this would be appreciated.
  20. Plant?

    Found this while wandering. Debris pile from rock canyon anticline. Just took a picture too heavy to pack on my back. Entire picture is approximately 2'x3'.
  21. Are these fossils?

    Hello all, I am still working on this very large project in the Lower Glen Rose Formation near Spring Branch, Texas. Are these marine fossils? Or are they minerals?
  22. Florida beach find

    This is a Florida beach find from about 25 years ago. We don't remember the exact location, but somewhere between Ft Meyers and Tampa. It reminds me of sponge but that's just a guess. It could be just an interesting rock, but has those large holes and very small pores. Any help is much appreciated. Thank you.
  23. north basin Lake Winnipeg

    So I came across this "weird stone. possibly a fossil. The pattern goes all the way through the stone. Found near the north basin of Lake Winnipeg, Manitoba. Does anyone have an idea what this could be / could have been? While I have found numerous snail type fossils, this one was a first... I'm not even sure if this is a fossil at all. more views of the same
  24. Blencathra fossil

    Hi All, while walking through the Lake District on Hill Blencathra. I found this wondered if anyone knows what it is. Nick
