  1. Found in southern chile

    What is it?
  2. Tree fern stem?

    I have been digging in the garden in Rossendale, Lancashire, to clear an area to pave and put up a green house. The area has previously been a barn, demolished in the 1990s, and since then field, then mowed as lawn. After clearing the turf I started to level the earth and stones below. I found that the old barn floor was about 8" (20cm) down, composed of ruble stones. In amongst them I suddenly found this which I immediately saw a resemblence to tree fern stems/trunks that I had seen in museum. It is very dense, weighing in at just over a Kilogram, denser than the surrounding stones in the old floor. There is an old coal mine less than a mile away and one of the nineteenth century inhabitants is shown on the census, 1861 I think, as a farmer and miner. There is also evidence of several small unrecorded mine close to the garden than that. We have a borehole for water and the record of that shows 40 feet of shale and clay before solid rock is found. I note that besides the patterend surface there are several holes that look like burrows penetrating the object, especially visible at the ends. My assumption is that the burrows predate the end breakages as they would have weakened it at those points. My photos are too large to send all at once. Any ideas? Thank you
  3. Dense dark & shiny

    Was hoping it was dinosaur scat but then I noticed it was shiny in some places. Once I cleaned it I saw layering and I think “schist” making it shiny! It’s oddly very heavy . Found in a river in north central Ohio area. I saw one pic , somewhat similar that was said to be a plant. Any ideas? Thank you!
  4. bone rock

    Slightly larger than a softball found st.marys ontario in backyard when digging
  5. Hi, My name is Neal, I found this rock on the side of a railroad bed near Caro, MI. It is heavy for it's size, and has quite a bit of porosity to it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!
  6. Hi everyone, I'm looking for a little advice on how to ship heavy fossils internationally (from the USA to the UK). I thought the forum might be a good place to ask, as quite a few of you may have done this in the past. I have the opportunity to purchase around 500kg (around 1000 pounds) of small fossils from someone in the US. I'm sure I've read members discuss sending fossils back from Tuscon in the past using shipping containers and guess this would probably be the best way to go. Any advice on how this works would be greatly appreciated.
  7. Can you ID this tooth

    Hello everyone. This is a great website, I've enjoyed browsing through the various threads. I'm not sure if I'm in the right place though. I've been trying to find out what type of tooth that I have for some time, although have failed miserably. I have no idea how old this is. I was told that it was a buffalo tooth, although it seems to be too large and is not the same shape. This measures: 2.12 inches tall 1.58 inches wide 1.08 inch thick Weight: 43.91 grams I know that this isn't exactly what is usually posted, although I thought that I would give it a shot. I can delete this post if it isn't right for this site. I appreciate any thoughts. If you have any questions I'd be happy to answer them as best I can.
  8. Fossils?! Please help identify

    The files I have are too large, I’m hoping to be able to post more pictures in the thread. These items were found on the Jurassic coast in the uk. The item in this image is smooth and solid, albeit there are parts of it broken off, it was whole when we found it.
  9. Broken woolly Rhino skull, Need Help!!!

    Hi guys, Recently I ordered a partial wooly rhino skull and as you could imagine I was on the brink of tears when it arrived. I ordered from overseas and someone must have dropped the box or something? but I am contacting the seller to see if I could get a partial refund (but I have my doubts). So I am trying to be positive and make this my "not so little" prep project, there is one problem though. I have no idea what I'm doing! (I don't even know if It's salvageable) So this is where you amazing people come in. I would love to get this looking as original as possible and was wondering if there was a product for that, or if I could just use household items, Or maybe there's some other solution that is foreign to me? Anyway, I would love to here every idea and any advice you've got. I have taken some pictures that are listed below, the last two are it in the condition before it was sent. If you need any more pictures to refer to, Please! contact me otherwise thanks for taking the time to read this and hope to hear from you soon. Thanks so much, Ryan.
  10. Heavy rock with holes

    Found this rock and am unsure what it is. It is heavy for its size and vaguely resembles a few different rock types i have searched for, but i have yet to find anything definitive as to what it is. Hoping someone on this forum could potentially identify this one. 1.956 lbs/887 g
  11. Eggs or anomaly? ID PLEASE

    I need help identifying this at first look it looks like a cluster of eggs but I’m not quite sure it is very heavy
  12. Petrified Log?

    Hello! I've had this in my yard for years and years. I'm not sure as to what type of tree it is or what kind of growths are on it. It looks to be like a lot of varieties of quartz. Any info is greatly appreciated!.. thanks!
  13. Bone segment

    Thoughts please?
  14. Fossil or not?

    I found this a number of years ago not far from Oshkosh WI. It seems quite heavy for its size and has that very interesting pattern. Possible wood grain, something else or just a rock? It was located in an area which has been disturbed many times - former farm field. Thanks for your input!! Jim
  15. egg?

    Everyone is wrong, thinking they have a dino egg. Am I? weight = 660 grams length = 3.9 inches
  16. Help Identifying

    Found this in an area where we find a lot of shark teeth. It's a lot heavier than other objects it size. Very smooth to the touch. I have no idea what it is if you can help. Thanks
  17. I dunno, ya'll? libglesv2.dll
  18. Hello. I signed up this evening after I looked over the board. As knowledgeable as the members here are I was hopeful you could help me. I know nothing about fossils, except they're mostly really old. Anyway, the ones in the pictures are from the Middle East (at least that's what my friend said). I tried to get the picture as clear as I could. I hope it's up to par. And thank you for your help! Greg.
  19. I know this is a fossil site but i was hoping someone here may have came across something like this before and may have some info to pass on. i found this near fenton, mi near a old tree while tilling. It was a little over 20 inches deep. it is almost perfectly round very very smooth and heavy and extremely hard. When hit by my tiller it got no damage only damaged my tiller. The tiller left metalic marks on the stone. i have since used my different things to try to scratch it with no luck. everything i use just just damaged. the item weighs around 41.7 grams
