Hello there, since i dont know anything about fossils in general i'd like to ask for a first opinion, if the 'stone' i found could be some kind of fossil. the interesting fact about this is, that i'm 99% sure that this is some kind of biological mass turned into stone, because it fits every aspect a small jaw, including nerves, teeth and the bone. Im curious about the material (what it turned into) and how old it might be. Thank you
I am figuring this “Fossil ID thing”! Please let me know if these pictures are clear enough/large enough. I see so much in this obsidian,.... but I don’t know what they are! So, is there obsidian in these fossils, or are there fossils in this obsidian?
I found the following while the water was lowered for winter at a nearby river in Talladega County, Alabama. At first look, I thought it a broken beer bottle and picked it up to keep the kids from cutting their feet in the summer. It's about an inch or so big. But as I looked closer, it was no beer bottle. It may be an amateurish attempt to make glass, but it seems like natural obsidian to me. What intrigued me was the markings on both sides. It's obviously broken (unfortunately), but it seems to have man-made markings on it. What do you think? Partial arrowhead/tool or what???? I am sending two pictures. One from the side that seems to have ridges (like I've seen on some obsidian arrowheads) and the backside, that looks to have scrape marks. I would love any and all feedback. If it's nothing, at least I'll know...
