  1. Large fossil "petrified" wood

    And lastly the large, 13lb section of wood, found not associated with any layers- found in the little blue river of Kansas City last week. very dense for its size. I understand this may not be speciated but pretty none-the-less! And not to stri the pot, but I've read some articles stating that mineralization can happen very fast, and some "petrified wood" could only be a hundred years old or less. I would presume there are so many factors that enter into mineralization of wood that only some techniques and carbon dating could help define age? Thanks for looking! Bone
  2. Fossil wood Part III

    So this completes the wood pieces I have- a spectacular 25lb "branch"?. Carried it more than a mile from a creek bed. I use it as a doorstop/conversation piece. Also found in Kansas City. comments/observations welcome! Thanks! Bone
  3. Petrified wood specimen?

    Found in smyth co virgrinia
  4. Wister Ok

    Found a couple pretty large pieces today on my property just outside Wister OK. The area is Pennsylvanian and I have found a lot of very nice calamites sp. and other plant related items but am struggling with deciding if these 2 pcs are fossils or cool looking geological, either way I will happily add them to either a collection of rock garden, depending on the outcome. Any help would be appreciated. I didn’t have a tape available so the chapstick tube is the best size reference I have for now.
  5. I bought this silver bracelet and I would really appreciate an opinion as to whether the stone could be Arizona petrified wood. I assumed it was maybe picture agate, but a couple people thought maybe it was petrified wood. The bracelet is unsigned and is very heavy gauge silver.Thanks for your help.
  6. Petrified Wood?

    Hi everyone! I am new here and found what I think looks like wood but it is rock solid. I found it this weekend while looking for shark teeth near the beaches in Venice, Florida. I am wondering if it is petrified wood and if anyone has an opinion as to what it might have come from...posting front and back photos of it. Thank you for any information! I am so excited to have found it even if it is nothing :-) Jodi
  7. A nicely detailed piece of fossiled wood (branch) found from the Carstone formation (Albian stage, Early Cretaceous) which uncomformably overlies the Kimmeridge Clay. Not really sure if this has derived from the Kimmeridge Clay itself, but would be interested to know.
  8. Hello everyone! Today we found a few more fossils on grandfather's attic we did not recognize. #1: ??? Somesort of fossilized seed maybe? It is rock hard, and turned to stone. (This fossil is smaller than a walnut, but larger than a hazel nut.) ID'd as dermal denticle from a skate by AlDente. #2: Looks and feels like fossilized wood, but it's quite unique. We haven't found a second one like this on the attic. ID'd as Selenite by Ynot. #3: These were found amidst bivalves: #4: Plates with patterns which reminded us of dendrites. Is this somesort of pseudo-fossil? ID'd Stromatolites by Rockwood. Thanks in advance!
  9. Bone shard or odd rock

    When I initially spotted this I thought it was a piece of fossilized wood. After looking closer I considered it might be a bone fragment. It's appears grainy and fibrous on one side and relatively smooth on the other. Or it could be just a chunk of rock.
  10. Fossilized Wood?

    This looks very much like fossilized wood with quartz, just looking for a yes or a throw it back. I'm sure it came from a Texas quarry, but I have no idea where in Texas.
  11. Hello again! Please find below some pictures of fossils/rocks that my parents have recently given to me (they were happy to get rid of this "junk" and they figured that I might be able to get some answers regarding their identity here on TFF). Item #1: My mom acquired this piece when she was visiting family in Italy, specifically my dad's hometown of Vittorio Veneto, Treviso, Veneto. She thinks it might be a piece of fossilized wood - what do you think? Item #2: I believe my dad found this rock, but I have no idea where - maybe on one of his walks around town in the Greater Toronto Area here in Ontario, Canada? I know it's not a fossil, but can anyone tell me what type of rock/crystal it is? My daughter Viola is interested in keeping it because it is quite pretty... Item #3: I think my dad picked up this rock as well, probably locally, too, just like the piece above. I'm certain it's just a rock, and not a very pretty one, but I want my identification to be confirmed before I get rid of it. Thanks a bunch! Monica
  12. Is this petrified wood? Any info?

    Hello! I don't have a lot of knowledge on fossils and would love your input on this. Is this petrified wood? What is the black area in the middle? I appreciate your help.
  13. Fossil Or Not A Fossil?

    I'm quite an amateur at this, but I found two interesting looking pieces near Las Vegas. One may be a tooth.. or just an oddly shaped rock. The other looks like petrified wood due to the rings. I hope the pics are clear enough. I measured the "fossil" as 2" x 1.5 inches (small). What do you guys think? "fossil": Fossilized wood: Also, does anyone know of any good fossil sites in AZ, NV (especially the Las Vegas area), UT or southern CA?
  14. Dino Bone Or Fossilized Wood?

    Specimen A: Specimen B: These are from one of those specimens from Fossil Starter Kit that started my collecting hobby as a kid, and I think its time I would like to pass these among several other specimens in the starter kit plus a few additional ones on to new beginning collector in my local community. In order to do that, I am putting together my own fossil starter set so I am going to need to ID each individual specimens in my set but unfortunately I have lost the ID cards for all of my specimens many years ago. The other specimens in the starter set I can somewhat ID them generally but these 2 particular specimens are, if I remember correctly - one may be a dino bone and another one might be a fossilized wood. But I could be mistaken and both could be dino bones. I am not 100% sure. My take is that Specimen A is a dino bone and Specimen B is a fossilized wood but would like to have 3rd party with more expertise than me help to double check if I am right or not, hehe. Thx guys!
