  1. 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?!
  2. Is anybody here going to the 48th Annual Gem, Mineral and Fossil Show in Westwego, LA (a suburb of New Orleans) on October 19- 21? I'm planning on going on Friday the 19th, and will bring my laptop so I can post photos to this forum for verification, since I KNOW I will get tempted by something!
  3. 30th Annual Gem, Mineral, Jewelry & Fossil Show

    until
    30th Annual Gem, Mineral, Jewelry & Fossil Show Organized by: Stamford Mineralogical Society Eastern Greenwich Civic Center 90 Harding Road, Old Greenwich, CT. 06870 FREE PARKING! Saturday, November 3rd, 2018: 9:30 am - 5:00 pm. Sunday, November 4th, 2018: 10:00 am - 4:30 pm.
  4. Fossil Coating

    This is a gastropod from the Old Port Frm (ridgely sandstone). I know the fossil is a chert cast coated with Beekite rings. Any ideas as to what the black "crinkled/wavy/ridged" coating between the Beekite & the chert might be? The pattern is different from the rings above it. It is shiny black in sunlight. Fun fact: this came from a public park inside my city limits and was perched on a little pillar of dirt after the rain from the weekend!
  5. New fossil from Turkey Isparta

    Hello fossil paleo geeks This is a photo of a fossil, the guy asked me what this is, and he said he got the fossil from turkey isparta, first looking at, i thought it s a specimen from a tree, but it looks also like Pelecypods im not sure what that is
  6. Small wormlike fossils in hard mineral

    I'm still brand new here, and hoping that help from the ID posts will get me moving in the right direction. We have so many fossils here in Cincinnati and the outlying regions.. Thank you for helping!
  7. Will anyone here be going to the Oxford Mineral and Fossil Show on 29 July 2018? I’m going to try my best to be there for this one. If anyone has been in the past, how great are the fossils that are for sale? I’m not too interested in the minerals part of it.
  8. What mineral did this wood turn to?

    This petrified wood was found in Gainesville, Missouri. Trying to identify the mineral that replaced this wood. Also if possible, some rough idea of age.
  9. Hello, I was hoping someone more experienced could shed some light on whether this object is anything of interest or if it's something man-made like a bead that happens to look like a natural formation. It was found in Rockford, IA at the fossil quarry, so Devonian if it's actually something fossilized. Is it possible it's a mineral formation of some kind? It's roughly 4mm x 4mm and non-magnetic. It seems to be well embedded in the rock. Thanks for your time!
  10. Iron pyrite

    From the album Vaches Noires spring 2018 and a bit of 2016

    Iron pyrite from "les Vaches Noires" Cliffs - collected during april 2018
  11. Looking to try a new twist to the blind trade. I propose a blind trade for one item only. It can be a fossil or a mineral. Is anybody out there interested? I only ask no junk/ scraps. One decent item for another.
  12. ID required for fossilized mineral (possibly amber)

    This fossil is not organic unlike my other fossils. But I believe it to be a Amber piece. Some people in my other posts thought it might be some other material, so what do you think? Since I firmly believe that this is Amber.
  13. Pseudofossil?

    Any ideas? It is made of a black non-magnetic iron mineral. I was thinking a cast of a septarian nodule........
  14. Coprolite or stalagmite?

    I need help identifying this item. Not sure exactly what it is. A man from Texas told me it was the finest Coprolite he had seen in 30 years. I would like to have some more opinions.
  15. Mineral or fossil?

    I found this out at Mineral Wells. I think it is a mineralization pattern, but I wanted to see if anyone else had any insight or could confirm that to be the case. Most everything I have found has been crinoids or sea shell in nature. If it is fossil it doesn't really match with anything else I have found there. The other sides are just yellow to cream colored stone.
