  1. Fossil hunting in my gravel pathway

    My daughter and I have been hunting on our gravel path in lockdown, and have found one with almost hair like filaments running the length of it. Any chance if an ID?
  2. Ammonite or regular gastropod?

    I hunt fossils in gravel from creeks and the likes. According to the geological survey of similar gravel the age ranges from 200-400 million years ago. I was wondering if you guys could tell me if this was an ammonite or some other sea gastropod. I've found countless other types of fossils but this is the only one like this.
  3. Trilobite piece+ others

    I found this piece of gravel a while back with a bunch of crinoids and the pygidium of a trilobite sticking out. Been curious ever since as to what the oval with the ridge running through the center and small hole in the middle is.
  4. weird stone

    found this weird stone in a gravel load from the Brazos river west of Houston Texas
  5. These two items were found in a gravel deposit in west central Alabama, US. The larger is a bit over 1 inch long and the smaller about 1/2 inch. Can anyone help me identify what they are?
  6. Older gravel pile near Tyler Texas

    Picked up from a gravel pile at the end of a long day assessing groundwater. Marine fish or terrestrial critter? Thanks in advance!
  7. What is this?

    Hello, I'm wondering what the fossils in this rock are. there is a large one surrounded by multiple small ones at different angles within the rock, and the fossils look very mushroom-like, although i may be wrong. The whole rock is around 2.3cm on its longest side, the largest fossil is about 1cm in diameter and the rest are all about 0.5cm or less. found in the gravel of a drive in Skegness, Lincolnshire so it may have come from elsewhere. hope to hear back
  8. Quartz fossil

    Hi, I found some interesting rocks in some gravel near downtown Indianapolis. Photo with the ruler is in inches, sorry to the rest of the world. Thanks in advance!
  9. Stone Fill Oddities

    These are two stone oddities found in a family gravel bed. I’m not exactly sure who brought the rock or where it’s from. When I need to kill some time, I start picking up pieces and examine them. The gravel bed is in Western PA, so hopefully it’s not more than 300-500 miles from here! Ruler is mm.
  10. Red algae ?

    Had to bring this one home from the gravel pit just in case. Typical finds are Devonian marine, but volcanics are in the mix too. Any chance it's red algae ?
  11. fossil?

    found this in a gravel load from the Brazos river west of Houston Any ideas on what it is?...thank you in advance
  12. Possible brachiopod

    Not looking for a full ID, but needing some help. My nephew brought me this piece of gravel containing some flint he found in his driveway, and it looks like on the bottom is a tiny bit of a brachiopod fossil, but I’m not 100% so I wanted to get an opinion here before I told him. Eastern Kentucky region, driveway gravel so I’m not sure of the age/strata or even where it was quarried. Thanks for your time.
  13. Fossil or not?

    I found a piece of gravel today that looked very different from the rest. Is it a fossil or is it just weathered granite? Thanks everyone!
  14. Fossilized coral??

    I found this different looking rock in a pile of gravel. It appears to have a very different texture and I'm thinking it may be a fossilized coral. I'm new to fossils so feel free to educate me! Thanks!
  15. Hello there, I have found very interesting pebble in quartenary river deposits and I was wondering whether anyone could help me with its identification. I do not know how old it is, I do not even know coral anatomy. I just found it interesting, rare (never seen it there until now) and decided to bring it home. I live in Czech republic, central Europe. Here it is (captured wet to highlight the structure). Silicified coral pebble (wet to highlight the structure), possibly Fungistraea cf. blaburensis (Hexacorallia) by Petr Hykš, on Flickr Field of view: 65 x 40 mm The pebble appears to be some kind of silicite, possibly chert (there are some tiny quartz crystals further on the left.. but maybe its calcite, I do not really know even though I definitely should! The rock just appears like a silicite to me). I am not an expert on corals, so I have done just a quick search and found out that similar, negative imprints have been found in jurassic of Štramberk - Fungistraea cf. blaburensis (Hexacorallia). See this image: What do you think?
  16. Tiny calyx ?

    I found this the other day, in the cab of my pickup, while looking for ski wax. I often pick things like this out of the gravel I'm shoveling during the fall. The bulk of this material is Devonian marine rock. Bits of plant do show up now and then.
  17. Some ID help

    I'm a rank amateur so bear with me. This was found in gravel outwash material in northeastern Indiana, along the Wabash river. Any ID help is greatly appreciated. Underside of the previous post
  18. Footprint?

    One of the perks of living where I do, is that a large amount of red gravel used here, is Gettysburg formation. So whenever there's gravel, you just look for the glossy shiny bits, and see what you can find. I went somewhere where there was a lot of gravel used and I picked up a few things but I think this may be the footprint I've been searching for so long. It's weird though, three toed and a little fat, so I want your opinions for verification. I don't know what it would be from, so I need help with that as well, the Gettysburg (late Triassic) is known for footprints by the way. Ask if more pictures are needed. Dang, forgot scale. The stones a bit over an inch long and about 3/4 of an inch wide.
  19. Wing or Fin?

    From the album Laha

    This specimen was found by my cousin. Location: Texas, Near Yorktown in a gravel driveway. Gravel isn't imported in texas. So the location is somewhere in Texas. Unknown Time frame.

  20. I have been collecting chert gravel fossils from the Bogue Chitto river near Franklinton, LA off and on for the last couple of years. These fossils come from the Citronelle Formation, which is Pliocene in age, and contains mostly unconsolidated sands and silts, as well as rounded chert river gravel which contains paleozoic fossils. The age is poorly known, as far as I am aware, and probably contains fossils of very different age. The most reputable source I have found on the subject was mentioned in an earlier post in the Louisiana section of the forum: (http://www.msgravel.com/assets/1312/Rocks_and_Fossils_Collected_from_MS_.pdf), but I'd be happy to learn more on the subject. According to the link, they range in age from the Devonian to the Mississipian. From my experience, crinoid fossils are the most abundant. Tabulate coral, horn coral, bryozoans, and brachiopods are less common. I have seen trilobites and ammonites from this gravel on the net but have yet to personally find one. I decided to post some of my better finds; unfortunately, I can't find some of my older material, so I don't currently have any bryozoans to show; hopefully I'll find them in a box somewhere and post them eventually. And sorry for the low image quality, I need a new camera The first two pictures are tabulate coral. The next three are crinoids. I will add more pictures in the next post.
  21. Agnostida Trilobite Piece?

    Could this be something agnostida trilobite? size 1,5-2 mm
  22. Here in central Oklahoma, fossils are scarce, all we have is red dirt and blank sandstone. I know of a great many people living here that would love to go fossil hunting, but don't know where to go, not to mention that you have to own or know somebody that owns land to hunt on within the state and that land is probably not close by. I've had an idea for a while to try to get fossiliferous stone delivered somewhere nearby so that people in my area can go fossil hunting instead of traveling several hours away. I've heard of museums and mines that dump their leftovers out for the public to sift through and I'd love to be able to bring the fossils to the people here in my area. How hard would it be to have a dumptruck worth of fossiliferous gravel delivered to somewhere here in central Oklahoma?
  23. Odd Bumpy Stuff

    this one is interesting. it appears to be a mold or burrow cast of some sort (i have collected many rocks with a similar shape), but the texture is unique. the 2" long rock appears to be embedded with hundreds of 1mm or less bumps, colored brown, grey and white. does anyone know what these are? 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.
  24. More Junk From My Yard

    here are 3 interesting things i found in my yard today. one is a horn coral i found in the dirt, and two red chunks came from the gravel. 1. 2. 3.
