  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. A Mushroom??

    I found this in a river in central Indiana. Looks like a mushroom to me but I'm interested in what you guys think.
  3. What is this item?

    Anyone know what this could be?
  4. Fossil

    If I already submitted these photos, I am sorry. I am working from my phone. I found this on my friend's yard yesterday. I will send samples of all lighting I have used. The first photos are from inside, at night. Then one will be from outside in the daylight and another one will be from inside, during the day. I see a full mushroom fossil. On some sides it resembles the cap of a morel mushroom and then on one side there are gills of a mushroom. Let me know what you all see, I have found something but I am not sure what I have found.
  5. Fossil

    I hope these photo's are better. I just want to be educated on what I found. I have taken photo's of all sides of this stone. I will have 2 posts.
  6. Petrified Mushroom

    I found a petrified mushroom and would like to find the value of it. Can anyone here give me that information? I also have a huge chunk of pink/purple coral and would like to know the value of it. I have a pic for the mushroom but will have to take pic's for the coral
  7. Possible Mushroom Fossil

    Hey, everyone. I found this a few years back and thought how strange it would be for a mushroom to achieve fossilization, so I kept it as a sort of trophy on my desk until losing track of it during a move to a different city and then forgetting all about it. I found it again earlier today, however, and was once again struck by how unlikely a mushroom fossil was, especially one not embedded in amber or stone. After some investigation, the odds seem even greater that it can't be. Nevertheless, the gills seem undeniable to me, and it's as light as you'd imagine a fossilized mushroom would be. I figured I'd bring the mystery to people who would enjoy solving it, so here we are. Thoughts? Did the cosmic mycelia arrange a discovery too synchronous to allow the possibility of a cold and empty universe devoid of meaning? Or am I just some jerk with a rock? In case it matters, this was found in central Texas some time in late 2016. Unfortunately, I can't recall the exact moment of discovery right now. It was either in the hill country near New Braunfels or along a hike and bike trail in North Austin.
  8. Mushroom

    Was needing help identifying this fossil. Looks like a Morrell mushroom?
  9. Million Pound Mushroom?

    More images of the million pound mushroom??
  10. Million Pound Mushroom?

    Hi everyone, I'm a complete novice here, I purchased this strange rock as a souvenir when travelling through Mongolia and Russia if was bought from Nomads who forage the area close to lake Baikal on the Mongolia side of the border. It strangely drew me to it as it was sort of hidden under some other prettier looking rocks. The internet doesn't seem to say it's likely to be a mushroom, although as I'm sure you will agree from the photos it's easy to believe it is. I'd appreciate anyone expertise and thoughts anyone might have on Mushrooms or anything similar they have seen before? Thank you for your time and interest.
  11. Petrified Mushroom ID and Value

    I was hiking in the smoky mountains in NC near Maggie valley when I came across this, what I thought to be a petrified mushroom. It seems to be pretty since I very rarely see mushrooms up in the Smokies
  12. Is this a mushroom fossil

    My dog brought this in from our backyard, Orlando Florida. It's hard as a rock; I don't know much about fossils or mushrooms, any help would be appreciated---wondering if it's ok to just throw out. Thanks.
  13. Good evening to everyone, I am really very new to fossils and petrified items so I am at a loss as to what I may have and I need your help. My grandfather left me this piece when he passed away a few months ago and it was marked "Petrified Mushroom". I have included some photos for your review and if you have any questions please let me know. The mushroom, for lack of a better word, is about 22" long by 14" deep by about 3/8" in height. It weighs just about 74 grams and has a spot in the middle that looks like wood, it looks like it was cut or removed from a piece of wood maybe a tree. Any help anyone could provide would be extremely appreciated. If this is the wrong forum to ask about my item I deeply apologize, just let me know and I will remove the post right away. Thank you again and I hope everyone has a great week.

  16. Found while kayaking

    I found this while kayaking in Lancaster County and am not sure what this might be.
  17. Hi Forum Members, I would like to have some help with some identification, I believe to have found a fossilized bracket fungus, found at Walton on the naze around 1 week ago washed up in amongst fossilized tree material. At first i thought it was a crab, but when i took it home to my amazement it was to me to be a piece fossilized wood with fungus in a matrix. Also I would like to have advise on how to preserve fossilized wood ,seeds and shark teeth from London clay. As I have been told, the way to preserve my fossils from the naze. Will be the process of have them in boiling water , then let them dry and then put nail polish on them. Here are 2 photos. SHARKY
