  1. Any info on this .....mushroom?

    I found this in my garden when I was digging out an invasive weed. I was keeping some interesting stones in a separate pile to add to stone edging I have around a garden bed. I saw it, and even covered in soil, it looked interesting. I removed some dirt and saw it was really lovely. At first I thought it would be porcelain. After I removed more dirt I realized that it isn’t. Both sides are truly beautiful. It looks like a mushroom to me - the detail is amazing! I don’t know anything about things like this but came across your website as I was trying to find out more about my find. Any help and advice you can give would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
  2. Help ID Petrified Wood with Large Print!

    Hello, My son found this large piece of petrified wood on a ranch here in South Texas. It is a large piece and weighs about 70 LBS. The bark is a nice blue color. We noticed an unusual print on the wood and are hoping we can get help identifying it. The imprint is deep in the wood and appears to be a set of three. The wood was found laying flat just below dirt level with the print side up. I will include photos. Thank you for your feedback!!
  3. A few fossil IDs before purchase.

    I hope its okay for me to ask for a few IDs before buying fossils. Here they are. With the lot with a lot, I see the nautilus shell is a cool buy and adds value to the lot. But I am unsure if the rest are cool fossils, or just some modern day horns and bones. To me it looks alot of modern stuff. Thanks for the help guys. Lately, just been buying some collection pieces while im stuck in quarantine :).
  4. What type of coral could this be?

    Found this in my backyard where I’ve also found another coral. I live in south Florida about 20 mins from the beach from the Atlantic Ocean. Not sure what kind of coral this could be. I’m also very curious about the hole because it seems to have been made. Any suggestions are welcome thank you.
  5. Today on a hunt I found on of the most unusual trilobite pygidiums I've ever seen from new york and cannot find anything out there to compare it to. Unfortunately the site is imported material from an unknown quarry upstate so all I do know is that its from the Devonian of New York based on other material found there, unfortunately I cannot attach a formation to this one. Also its also fragile and a very partial piece thats unpreped, I think its a ventral display. This maybe a head scratcher so maybe the trilobite experts here can help weigh in on what this can possibly be.
  6. Eocene Era Marine Fossil Identification

    I hunt Eocene era Marine fossils in South Alabama. I have found a ton of thins but this one has me stumped. It's roughly 1½ inches long, ⅜ of an inch thick, and ⅜ of an inch tall (Sorry no metric ruler). On one edge, it appears to have small pointy teeth while the other side has some what of a channel. I've been able to identify most of what I have but I need some help on this one...

  13. Help IDing some fossils

    Hello everyone, I’m new so I hope I do this right! I recently got some new fossils and among them were two interesting pieces. One was an unidentified bone which when I saw I immediately thought it looked like a Vertabrae. I’m no expert but it has the shape of one with the neural canal clearly there, however I could be wrong. It certainly doesn’t feel like stone so I don’t think it has been fossilised although again, I’m no expert. I don’t expect anyone to be able to work out the exact species from this, but maybe just a better idea on if I’m right about the type of bone and maybe the type of animal it came from, I’d guess some kind of mammal. The other fossil was a set of jaws in stone. It looks like a composite. My initial thought was Mosasaur but not 100% sure. i was not present when these fossils were purchased as they were bought as gifts for me in my absence, so the location of where they were found is unknown to me, which I’m sure will make IDing these difficult, so I apologise. Any help whatsoever is appreciated. Thank you! (The ruler used here is 15cm in length)
  14. Fife Scotland mystery?

  15. Which kind of clam is this?

    Hello, what kind of fossilized clam is this? I dont know where it is from but it might be from germany since it was bought there.
  16. Any idea what this is? hoof?

    Hi everyone, I was hoping someone could identify this or tell me if its something interesting. I was digging a bush out of my yard and hit it with a shovel, sounded much different than a rock so I washed it off. It was found in clay but this soil/ clay mix was brought in by a truck from somewhere after the house was built to level the backyard. I thought it was a very unusual piece to be found in the yard. Any ideas? Let me know if any other pictures would help. Thanks Chuck
  17. New to this, recently put a house on a large family property that’s on a deep creek bed that runs into Cape Fear River. I have found several large beautiful pieces of petrified wood (cypress I’m assuming) I need help with connecting with people who could use some for research purposes (I will donate).

  22. Knowledge lacking

    Hello, Folks! I openly admit I am not educated on fossils or geodes, but I do love rocks and have collected ones that spark my eye for years; however, on a recent walk I found a peculiar one and am interested to learn what (if anything) it might be. Can anyone help? Appreciate it! BLT
  23. Help identify peace river find!

    I found this down in the peace river Florida area and it’s got me stumped. 1 perfect tooth in the jaw section intact. A second tooth right behind it that looks split in half. Any ideas?
  24. I searched every body of water on Rockd to see any sedimentary deposits that are near me; there is nothing. Everything is metamorphic, but then I came across Lytle Creek. I wen't on the map on Rockd and checked and it said something about sediment deposits. The info was too confusing; I couldn't find any easier info.
  25. Hey Everyone! I've really come to appreciate all the help and support that this community offers. I feel privileged to live in a time and place where it is so easy to stay connected with others who share interest in our pursuit to uncover the mystery of deep time. I suppose that I should start off by introducing myself in case you haven't had the pleasure yet. So. Here goes: Hi! My name is Nicholas Perlenfein. I’m a student at College of the Redwoods currently pursuing an AST in Geology. I have an intense interest in studying fossils the genesis of which lies very early in the most dormant memories of my childhood. I hope one day to become a paleontologist or maybe a fossil preparator. I’m currently enrolled in my colleges English 1A course and have been assigned to conduct primary research in the form of a recorded interview regarding the discourse within my desired carrier and major. We are directed to schedule an interview with a professional in a relevant field and ask them about how peers within the profession choose to communicate and what ethics are held by the community at large. I felt that someone on TTF must work at a natural history museum, or knows someone they can put me into contact with, or at the very least, point me in the right direction? I understand that during these difficult times that people are very busy, I know for a fact that my schedule has been greatly disrupted. As stated before, I am looking to conduct an online interview, we can do Skype, zoom etc. of about 30 to 45 minutes that I can record in order to refer back to whilst writing my essay. Its crucial i be able to record the interview so, if you're not comfortable with that, although I would be thrilled to talk to you, I sadly won't be able to use our conversation for this assignment. I just want to thank everyone reading this one more time for making me feel so welcome in the community. I look forward to your replies. -Nick
