Hello i am reposting thread of this piece from 3 days ago . I am new to this forum and trying to figure out what works best in posts . i have this fossil I believe that I have no idea what it is.M Rockwood noted that foramen was visible so it wasn’t just a rock. Any help would appreciated. I thought it might be from ankylosaurus spine or something of that nature but I am a rookie here with vivid imagination. Just hoping I could so info from the experts on here .. thanks
Some years ago I found this among the red rocks just beyond Zion National Park. I thought it was a stone with erosion and wore it around my neck until someone told me it was a petrified bone. I took it to a place in NYC that specializes in fossils and they told me to go to the Museum of Natural History because they could not identify it but definitely thought it was something. I thought I should let you guys take a crack at it. Photos are of two sides with the second side showing a distinct darkness around the putative foramen. I have additional photos. I am new at this and appreciate any insights or thoughts. Thank-you! Dimensions: Length: 3.25" (8.5 cm) Width: 1.25" (3.0 cm) Thickness: 0.25" (app. 0.5 cm) Foramen: 0.25" (app. 0.5cm)
