  1. Is This Petrified Wood?

    I've just started getting interested in fossils and started collecting ones I've found. I recently found what to me looks like petrified wood in a bag of pea gravel I got from Home Depot. Is this petrified wood? I've attached a picture of each side of the piece for help with identification. Thank you for the help!

  4. Is this a tooth?

    Hi, I found this tooth on a beach in eastern Havana (Tarara), Cuba. I have no idea what animal could it be, can anyone please help me to identify it?
  5. Petoskey Fossil stone

    Went to the Bone Valley Club Show Saturday, I had been watching YouTube about this stone, I bought this one for 12.00, I knew I would never go to Michigan but I have followed Warren Petoski who is native american and from Michigan. The city and I believe this stone is named after his family who have been this this are many generations. A Petoskey stone is a rock and a fossil, often pebble-shaped, that is composed of a fossilized rugose coral, Hexagonaria percarinata.[1] Such stones were formed as a result of glaciation, in which sheets of ice plucked stones from the bedrock, grinding off their rough edges and depositing them in the northwestern (and some in the northeastern) portion of Michigan's lower peninsula. In those same areas of Michigan, complete fossilized coral colony heads can be found in the source rocks for the Petoskey stones. Petoskey stones are found in the Gravel Point Formation of the Traverse Group. They are fragments of a coral reef that was originally deposited during the Devonian period.[1] When dry, the stone resembles ordinary limestone but when wet or polished using lapidary techniques, the distinctive mottled pattern of the six-sided coral fossils emerges. It is sometimes made into decorative objects. Other forms of fossilized coral are also found in the same location. In 1965, it was named the state stone of Michigan.
  6. Fossil question

    I was wondering if anyone knew any good places to hunt fossils or rocks in Minnesota where I live or Wisconsin
  7. I found this fossil / mineral over at Folkestone, and would really appreciate any help in identifying it. It looks like it could be part of a larger organism, but also appears rather crystalline in shape. Does anyone have any ideas on this?
  8. that structure could be something fossilized ?

    I want ask if that structure could be something fossilized ( bone . sponge ... etc ) or just a rock . found on my local beach .many thanks .
  9. Fossilized tooth?

    I found this fossil while I was working a creek in SW Missouri. I first thought it was a shell, but after cleaning it up and examining it further, it’s looks more like a tooth. What do you guys think? If it matters, I found it near a Native American camp, not far from where I once found a Vero Tapir foot bone.
  10. Fossil found at beach?

    Found this at a beach in south texas, I have no idea what it is.
  11. This is very cheap and has some red flags eg patch of resto in the middle but what do you guys think of the rest
  12. Saudi Shark Tooth

    Hi everyone. Recently I received from a familiar this shark tooth from Saudi Arabia. I'm trying identify the species. Maybe Striatolamia? From Umm Wu'al Formation (eocene I think) Allí the best JUAN
  13. Please Help ID

    I found a cave recently, located about 30 feet above a creek on a hillside. Inside the cave I found a chunk of sediment, hardened into a sort of conglomerate. I split open the rock and inside found this. I have no idea what it is, thinking maybe a seed of some sort. Also in the conglomerate were crinoids and clam shell fossils, so this stuff seems old to me. I am located in central Missouri, USA and would really appreciate your help in identifying what this is. It is just over 1 inch in length (25.4 mm) and about 1/4 inch thickness (6.35 mm). On one side, there is a sort of indention that still has some of the conglomerate material in it. The side pictured is what I consider the front and is not the side with the indention and conglomerate, just to clarify.
  14. Hello. I found this very cool Chesapecten Shell covered in Barnacles. Feels very strong. There are cracks in the underside of the shell and I was wondering if there is something clear and strong that I could apply to stabilize the fractures? Thank You!
  15. Found this odd fossil on Myrtle Beach 2-18-2020. Never found one like this. Personal opinion it resembles a crocodile tooth that broke, and point recessed into the larger portion. However it is very solid, and there seem to be no seams to confirm this (and it was a wild guess on my part anyway). Hopefully one of you has a more educated opinion. I'd love to hear from you if so. Thanks for looking and happy hunting.
  16. Possible Dugong rib

    Hello, I found what appears to be a fossil in Peace River FL today. It is extremely dense so I am thinking it could be a dugong rib fragment. Any thoughts?
  17. What could it be?

    I found this in the creek bed near the Mississippi River in Northeast Missouri. The size is about equivalent to a milk jug. Thanks for looking!
