  1. 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.
  2. Tooth identification help needed

    I am trying to identify a tooth I found today in central Ga. the tooth is 3 inches long.
  3. 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?
  4. fossil_kingvalley.jpg

    Found this in a dry creek while looking around the amazing Mineral King Valley.
  5. 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?
  6. 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.
  7. 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?
  8. 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
  9. Fossil, Mineral, or Something Else?

    I have no idea what this is. Found it at Lake Texoma.
  10. 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!!!
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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!
  15. ID help needed

    Hello, I picked this up on my recent trip through northern Arizona on route to Grand Canyon North Rim. It appears to be a plant fossil but I have no knowledge on this. I picked it up for my friend's 9 yr old boy who is very interested in geology and fossils. It would make him so happy if we could ID the rock & if this is a fossilized plant. The format would not allow me to upload more than 1 picture due to size. Any help would make a budding 9 yr old geologist very happy. TY
  16. i’m pretty sure this is just a cool rock but if any of you think it’s of biological origin... one can only hope!!
  17. Calvert Cliffs, MD id help please

    This was found on our trip to Calvert Cliffs, MD on the shore line. Dear husband thinks it's just a weird rock, but sons wanted to save it in case it was more. We're coming up with nothing with our novice search for what it could be, if anything. Any ideas or advice would be really appreciated! Thank you.
  18. I found this one yesterday. I recently got back into the hobby of rock tumbling and was looking for rocks for that when I came across a few fossils in a creek bed in North Central Arkansas, USA. This one resembles a "pigs in a blanket" sausage wrapped with crescent dough. I thought the inside was just dirt and mud but it is solid. It is 2 inches at the longest point. The hole is approximately an inch in diameter.
  19. any ideas?

    not sure what this is or if its even a fossil ... it actually looks like a dried up turd but it actually is stone I will be posting these pics of it dry, well mostly . I will then post a set of pics of it wet. Then I will post close ups of certain points on it. It was found in a gravel pile from the Brazos River west of Houston Tx. measures just shy of 4 inches long and one and a half inch wide.
  20. I found 2 separate sets of these- 1 set on 2 different days in the Danube River in Germany. These look like teeth, but when I cleaned them they began to smell like skunk.... the more I cleaned, the stinkier they got. Anyone know if they are teeth, a plant, or something else entirely? It was very difficult to determine. (My husband is a dentist and initially he was certain they were not teeth, but after being cleaned, it was even more ambiguous.) I finally gave-up, took this picture, and threw them away... FAR AWAY! Thank you!
  21. is this anything or a odd tiny pebble?

    is this anything but a odd tiny pebble? location west of Houston...Brookshire....in a gravel load from the Brazos River. more close up photos to follow......
