  1. Fossil??

    I am undecided if this is fossil or dendritic deposits on a rock. It is from Keokuk limestone, Mississippian.
  2. Interesting find!

    Hello, this is my very 1st time to be in this forum. We found this really large rock in West Texas with all kinds of markings on it I hope that you guys can zoom in to see details I'm assuming they're fossils. Any ideas?
  3. Fresh or fossilised?

    Hi all, So I recently picked this up at Fossil Beach in Mornington, Victoria. It's pretty easily recognisable as a tooth plate from a toad fish, Diodon (formosus?) which are quite common. My question is is it fossilised/mineralised or fresh(er)? Specimens I have seen from similar locations tended to have a different colour and I don't really have anything to compare it's weight too ( though it seems reasonably dense for it's size to me). I have tapped it on china/teeth and it seems to "ting" and Iv'e held a match under it (though admittedly not for long as I'm a bit nervous about damaging it) and it doesn't smell hideous. a ) can anybody tell visually if it is fresh/fossilised? b ) I have access to some pretty high tech scales, if I were to look for density what sort of values would indicate fossil vs bone? Cheers LG
  4. Bone Fragment

    My kids found this in the creek bed in Bear Creek, Alabama over the weekend. Any idea what kind of bone it is? Also, how do we tell if a bone is fossilized or just weathered? Thanks in advance!
  5. Fossil or...?

    Found this in the backyard of new home in Northern New Mexico; matrix looks like PA Limestone of the Madera group, which is close by in the Mtns. orange stuff may be geothermal in origin, but also looks like wood. Leaning geologic. Very heavy. Thoughts?
  6. Hope you can help! Thanks

    Hope you guys can help found in Illinois in a creek. Southern Illinois near st. Louis
  7. ID requested please

    The location of this is unknown but I'm working on it. It was given to me by a friend who either found it at Palo Duro Canyon, TX or in Colorado. Another possibility is that it is from her ex mother'-in-law's rock collection which would be from Montana or Nevada. Sorry for the vague location! I'm trying to get more accurate information but wanted to see if it's even something interesting and worth spending the time to track down the location with a possible call to an ex mother-in-law. Thank you for your time and input as I have zero knowledge of fossils.
  8. A Novice Asks: Is This a Fossil?

    Hello everyone! My name is Patrick, I am new to these forums, and have next to no knowledge about fossils. I just found an interesting item today on my farm in Wayne County, Ohio, and was wondering if you could please help me. If it is not a fossil, please forgive me, I would like to learn more about the subject, and figured this would be a good way to start. Anyways, I was walking the bed of my creek, and I noticed what I thought to be a large bee hive stuck in the clay embankment. Upon further inspection, I noticed that it was solidified and made of rock, and the “combs” were more cylindrical than hexagonal or octagonal. I wondered if this is a fossil, and whether or not it might be coral? Any help would be greatly appreciated! I did my best to follow the photo guidelines, and the bottom of my tape measurer is in cm, for those of you whom may be outside of the U.S.
  9. center hole in rock

    another bedrock small one inch an half. Fossil? Has hole in center one side of rock is about half an inch and the hole goes down inside half of that at least, sorta curvy an lots of texture. I tried my 5x magnifying lamp to look inside an tried the flashlight while taking picture. I just took one pic of the 19 pics in a group -if it will load, didn't know which pic (if any) is well enough to see. It was in the flowerbeds where I found the other fossil rock. I can bring up individuals if you want a bigger few of certain ones.
  10. Roadside find

    A friend found this on the side of the highway in James City NC, any ideas. I told him I didn't think it was fossil but I couldn't identify it. He only took this one photo.
  11. Need help with Barnacle!

    Hello, can anyone please help me with this Barnacle. Is this old? Do you have any idea of the age of this or if a fossil even or just a dead barnacle shell. Its about 2 inches the shell its self and about 1 1/2 depth. It was found in Oregon, United States (Pacific Ocean Beach)
  12. Arizona leaf fossil?

    Inspecting rocks from a trip to Northern Arizona I noticed these imprints on one of the rocks. As always I would appreciate any input, thank you.
  13. Tooth identification help needed

    I am trying to identify a tooth I found today in central Ga. the tooth is 3 inches long.
  14. Found this formation on the bank of the Dnieper River, Ukraine, Kherson region. Sizes: 73mm length and 32mm width. Composition: the surface layer consists of steatite; the next layer is similar in color to the bone, has many small (less sand) and a little medium-sized pores, a hardness of about 4,5-5, actively foams under the action of hydrochloric acid; the inner layer of blue material has a dense structure similar to flint or chalcedony with impurities, chalcedony does not scratch. Can it be hidrotermal metamorphic fossil, or simply geology formation?
  15. fossil_kingvalley.jpg

    Found this in a dry creek while looking around the amazing Mineral King Valley.
  16. leaf_01.jpg

    I was fortunately given permission to rockhound on land just east of flagstaff and found a number of great crystals, chalcedony and agate. Inspecting these rocks I found these two images on a rock and I am wondering if they are leaf fossils?
  17. Hello All, I’m a newbie to this forum, subsequently solving my many fossil and rock mysteries. This one has me stumped. Surely it cannot be a fossil inside? Does that even happen? Also, it’s more defined than any other agate I’ve seen here (Haida Gwaii). Gosh, I sure hope this is an agate (please prove me wrong, if I’m wrong)! Thanks a mil.
  18. Is this Coral?

    This piece has caught my eye. All I know is that it was found in central alabama but no other details as of yet. This looks like coral, can someone put a name with it?
  19. Oolitic coral and stromatoporid?

    Good morning everyone. As usual I got off of work and went on a nice brisk walk out to see the water levels. I ended up stopping by a honey hole of mine for about 10 minutes, and found a couple of goodies. I know the species of coral at hand, but my question on this would be are the small circle patterns on the coral be considered oolitic inclusions? Beyond that, I've found a few things of what I am guessing to be a sponge fossil. I'm completely uncertain on this. I've collected a few in the past year and always manage to bring them home, but have yet to ask around or do any research on them myself. Any opinions are welcomed and appreciated, thanks! Coral Sponge? #1 Sponge? #2 Top of sponge? #2 Bottom of sponge? #2
  20. Fossil, Mineral, or Something Else?

    I have no idea what this is. Found it at Lake Texoma.
  21. Strange rock

    Found last spring in Lawrence Co. Tennessee in a small creek while artifact hunting. Thought it was unique so I hauled it home. Any thoughts on what it could be are appreciated...thanks!!!
  22. What in the world is this thing?

    Hey! I need help identifying this... fossil? A friend of a friend found it while roof bolting in a coal mines in Southern Illinois. I am stumped and google has come up with nothing helpful. I'm hoping that someone here can help me figure out what this is. This is the only photo I have of it but will ask if he can get a few more with better lighting and stuff. He says it feels like bone but isn't sure. Would appreciate any help you can give! Thanks
  23. Kirk from Texas

    Hello everyone. I would like to first say thank you all for having me and please feel free to give me any advice on how I can make my posts better so that all can enjoy. Several years back I started finding literally tons of fossils in my back yard which was the catalyst to my newfound interest. Having said that, the only ones I have been able to identify myself were the dozens and dozens of ammonites, most of which I used in my 9ft, mostly fossil, backyard fireplace which came out amazingly. I would like to start by trying to have this little guy identified if at all possible. I first thought it to be petrified wood but the more I research the more I doubt that idea. I live in North Texas directly on the wise county & denton county boundary. Again, thank you all for accepting me in this circle and I hope to learn as much as I can as I am deeply interested in this subject but horribly uninformed.
  24. Mystery find

    Hello all, I found this a couple weeks back and forgot to post about this. Not sure if it's even a fossil, but any ideas are appreciated. I really cant make anything out. My best guess here is a bryozoan or sponge if it was anything. Found in Henry County, Missouri. Assumed age is Osagean, Mississippian, though I am not 100% certain and it could be older than I think.
  25. Is this a fossil?

    Hello everyone, new member here My 8 year old son is very interested in fossils and is always looking for them even though I don't think there are many in our area. He dug this piece out of our yard in Spokane, Washington. I have my doubts but I can't tell what it is so thought I better ask. Appreciate your help!
