  1. Bone Fossil?

    Hi I found this odd shaped rock and was wondering if it's possibly a fossilized bone or tooth of some kind. Does it look familiar to any of you? It's 2 1/2 inches long, limestone. I find petrified wood near where this was found so it makes me wonder if it's some kind of fossil. It is definitely shaped differently than most limestone rocks I find.
  2. Hello, I was out walking for exercise during lockdown in the fields and found this egg like fossil on the surface. The farmer had been excavating topsoil from a ploughed field and using it to resurface a farm track. I have no idea what it is, could it possibly be a fossilized egg? I didn't realise finding stuff in fields was this exciting! Apoligies if the images are not up to standard. The outer material is red/orange, the inner material is dark grey Approx 2.8 CM Length, 2.1 CM Width, 1.3 CM Depth Thank You
  3. Hey guys, I saw this egg listed as fossilized dinosaur egg, I wasn’t really sure because eggs usually crystallize after being fossilized. I would appreciate your input. Thanks
  4. Fossilized Plant Identification

    Here is a fossilized plant, possibly the fruit of a plant a friend brought by and asked my opinion on its identification. I was leaning towards a cycad of some sort, but wasn't familiar with it. Any thoughts here? He doesn't know where he found it during the past 40 years of collecting, but it would have been in the U.S.A., unless he bought it along the way. Sorry about no scale - it is about 6 inches in length and about 3 1/2 inches wide. Thanks for any helpful hints.
  5. What is this I’m very curious

    Hey I was curious as to what this object I found while making a fence on my piece of land that I just bought in Southern California is. I’m not a fossil guy in fact I just created this account because I found this forum on google while researching about getting a fossil I’d.
  6. Fossilized crab claw?

  7. Silicified bone

    Found this any info is appreciated. No limestone and not much quartz in the area this was found. Everything about it is very hard and possibly silicified. Thanks Jason
  8. Hi friends! I recently went to Rainbow Basin in California. I found this piece of fossilized something. To me, it looks like a chunk of skin and some fat layer underneath. I’m likely way off but, would love to hear all your thoughts on what this may be. Thanks in advance for your help!
  9. Mushroom

    Was needing help identifying this fossil. Looks like a Morrell mushroom?
  10. fossilized hickory nut?

    I found this what I think to be a fossilized hickory nut that was partially eaten by some animal. I found it in northern Kentucky a couple miles from the Ohio river. If someone could help me out that would be great.
  11. Fossilized Bone?

    Found these 2 pieces of rock next to each other while beachcombing on Saltwick Bay, North Yorkshire. I believe they are bone because of the honey comb structure. Can anyone confirm whether the rocks are bone or just rock. Many thanks for any help with identification.....other photos to follow.
  12. Was this rock underwater ?

    In our cottage in an island there are these big rocks that were dug up from the ground when we first built our house but there is one rock in particular that looks like it may have been underwater at some point and I sure am interested in the possibility of maybe finding some fossils, what's your opinion ?does it look like it may have been underwater? And could this area have fossils? Thanks
  13. Bison bone cut marks

    In my hunt to find things on my shoreline Ottertail county Minnesota on North Turtle Lake I have collected what I have been told by the University of Minnesota are bison bones. I broke my wrist collecting this spring so I have been reduced to looking over my finds and I noticed for the first time what looks like cut marks. I have also found various tools including a core rock. Does anyone know if these are marks made by a tool?
  14. Fossilized vertebra?

    Could these be vertebrae or ? Found the one large but several smaller ones as well
  15. I was burned by buying two fake eggs and was hoping someone could recommend some reputable sources to buy a real dinosaur egg, i have collected a few dinosaur fossils over the last 5 years and really would like to add an egg to my collection. any help or advise would be very much appreciated.
  16. Fossilized turtle?

    Needing help on indentafication of what looks to be a turtle ir shell at least. Any info as to what type of turtle or what I have. Thank you
  17. Whale Tooth?

    I was looking over some fossils in my collection, and can't remember where the heck I found this. I was thinking it is some type of whale tooth, but ..... it really doesn't look too much like the others I have found. I would greatly appreciate y'alls opinion. It is the lower item in the pictures. Thanks in advance
  18. Scotia, cali.

    Found In scotia, ca. How do you determine how old? And what's a good solvent to loosen up sand stone
  19. Going through a forgotten corner of the basement last night I stumbled upon a box with some of my grandfather's "rocks" that my grandmother gave me when she sold her house and moved in with my mom a few years ago. As far as we (my grandmother, mom, and myself) know these were all found in Maryland. He worked for the state dot for years as a bridge inspector so they could be from anywhere in the state. The lighter 2 pieces I am confident that they are petrified wood, the brown/red looking one I am not as sure. The brown/red piece's outside is almost like spaghetti noodles laying tight against each other for lack of a better description.
  20. Fossilized bone found on North Sea beach

    Sorry I do not know terminology yet... I found this North of Amsterdam and I would love your thoughts. Thank you!
  21. what are these?...are they coprolites?

Coprolites...??. ..fish? turtle? lizard?...??
  22. fossilized tiny egg mass???

    found west of Houston in Brookdhire in gravel load from Brazos River at first I thought it was a piece of turtle shell then perhaps a piece of corral but when I looked at it through a microscope ???? I went online and looked around found something similar but its modern horseshoe crab eggs???...could this be eggs from a very old horseshoe crab? but I think they are smaller...or perhaps something else? it is slightly curved...the clutch is flat about a 1/4 th inch think and an inch in width this is the first thing like this that I had found. if its eggs they don't seem to be on anything just a solid crystallized mass. have also included a pic of horseshoe crab eggs for comparison. a few of the pix I took of them wet others dry.
  23. I found a bunch of new pieces. Please help!

    Found a lot of new fossils this past weekend. I typically collect shark teeth but I am trying to learn about other fossils a little bit now. I’ll post 3 pictures of different pieces because that is the max allowed to post. I’ll also try and post more pics in the comments if I can. Where are my smart people at?!
  24. Not sure? Fossilized Bone or Mineral?!

    I found this piece this past weekend. I’m not sure what it is..? Possibly fossilized bone but the consistency is so hard it looks more like a mineral to me? The middle is a beautiful tan, almost shiny metallic color at the right angle. Anyone know what it is?!
