  1. Amazing Pertified Creatures

    Found in northwest San Antonio Texas in October 2020
  2. Amazing Pertified Creatures

    Found in northwest San Antonio, Texas this January 2020
  3. Amazing Pertified Creatures

    This was found in northwest San Antonio, Texas yesterday.
  4. Amazing Pertified Creatures

    I found these petrified specimens on private land in the northwest part of San Antonio, Texas over the last 10 months. I did little, if any digging, as recent rain has exposed them. I'm here to learn about the science, as well as what I have in my possession. They are beautiful creatures whom appear to have been frozen in time. What exactly are they and how did they end up in this state of condition. I'm excited to hear you responses as I am new to this "world of fossils" but a willing participant. Thanks for letting me take part.
  5. Is this just a rock or a petrified walnut?

    I thought this was just a rock but I saw in a book this could be a walnut. Any ideas?
  6. Coprolite or just rock?

    Is this a coprolite or just rock? There is something in the center that goes all the way through.
  7. South Texas Petrified Wood

    Was recently driving through Live Oak County in South Texas when I picked up this piece of petrified wood. Not new to collecting but this is my first post. Please go easy on me. I am glad to find this site. Question: Can the type of wood be distinguished from the bark on this piece? The pattern looks so familiar to me but I can’t place it. It appears that the images are too large so I will post others in a reply to my message? Thanks in advance
  8. Found in fl yard

    I found this in my yard took it a museum and the guy said it was petrified coral. Just wanted confirmation and a good place to have it authenticated to sale.i live in Panama city, fl maybe 50 yards from salt water. I have better pics.
  9. Petrified coconut?

    Does anybody know what these are? Size and shape of coconuts embedded into rock on the coast, but hard like stone or petrified wood.
  10. Found in Vernonia,Oregon

  11. Petrified plant or just rock?

    My wife found this along the Brazos River. There are white lines that go through the rock from one side to the other. Interestingly, some of the white lines have black lines within them. Any ideas what this is?
  12. Dorset Petrified Wood

    Found this sticking out of a mud slide near Golden Cap on the Dorset coast. Certainly looks like wood, it doesn’t feel as hard as stone but harder than wood, I suppose like coal. Is it definitely petrified and is anyone able to speculate on age, possible species etc? Thank you in advance
  13. Some type of bone?

    Found this piece at China Lake, CA on private property in a large deposit. Only removed this one piece for identification, can anyone help ID this specimen? Can provide more images if possible.
  14. Petrified/Fossilized Nutshell

    Found out near a dry lake by Barstow, CA. I was wondering if anyone could help ID this piece, it’d be very much appreciated. I’m only able to provide one photo, so hopefully it’s enough.
  15. Need help with ID please...

    I’m in the twilight zone apparently...I know how ridiculous this seems, but the only thing I can find that remotely seems to match this thing for size and shape is titanaboa. I’m open to other suggestions. This was in my back yard in Fort Worth, Texas...relatively shallow - about a foot to the top of it. We are in a rocky area and are within 30 ft of the highest elevation in the county, about 150 ft above the average for the city. I can’t find a tape measure to put next to it, but measured with my iPhone and it’s 29” long, 13” wide, and about 9” at the highest point. Seems to weigh in the 80-100 lb range. It looks like were other At least 2 other snakes on top of it that you can make out on the top left of it, but pieces of them have broken off as well as some of the main specimen. The underbelly is in excellent condition...it seems clearly show “snakeskin”. It wouldn’t let me attach more pictures, but on the back you can clearly see vertebrae at almost the center position and what seems to be some other type of nerve endings above that. There are literally hundreds, maybe thousands of pieces in the immediate area from ground level down ranging from quarter sized up to basketball sized with most between golf ball and baseball. I’ve been digging slowly for 3 days with no end in sight. Many of them are hard to specifically identify but seem to almost all meet criteria for fossil and not rock. Please help...
  16. Could this be petrified wood?

    I have had this rock with my mineral collection for a while and have always wondered if it could be wood. It has a gold sheen to it, especially when wet. I can't remember where I found it.
  17. Fossil coral,moss?, bryozoan

    I picked this up at the flea market. He told me it was petrified moss...which I dont think it is. Im thinking coral but I wasn't able to find the answer after some research. Its from Arizona and was collected in 1968 and its jurassic in age. Pretty cool fossil.
  18. Does anyone know if this could be bone or petrified wood?
  19. These objects appear to be fossilized bones. Tongue test: (yuck) ahh seems sticky. Lighter test: does not burn. What are some other tests I can do from home to confirm these are 1. Bones 2. Fossilized? The objects are heavily mineralized. Examining the objects several of the larger objects have a circular protrusion harder and sharp in their top middle and bottom middle. The material protruding nipple appears to be more heavily mineralized than the majority of surface material. If these are bones can anyone identify them? Found in western Pennsylvania in an upland area eroding out of a hill into a stream. The stream is a headwater of the Potomac River. A Bovid astragalus was also found within inches (the astragalus dies not appear to be fossilized). In total 15 possible petrified bones were found on the surface within 1 meter of each other. In the center of the objects was a large flat rectangular block of limestone. My uninformed supposition is this was a fire pit and bone marrow extraction spot over 10,000 years ago. I’m looking for confirmation the large objects are indeed fossilized bones. If they are I will seek advice about carbon dating.
  20. Help ID of Petrified plant/wood?

    This piece was found in the same stream bed that I have collected petrified wood from. The area in south of the Dinosaur Park in Laurel MD, the stream runs though College Park MD and is close to areas where foot prints of Cretaceous dinosaurs have been found.
  21. JUNK or petrified wood/bone?

    Hello first time poster. Found as is (not encrusted or buried) along the Whiskey Bridge outcrop in Bryan, TX, along the Brazos river. 4cm in length, about 1.5-1.0cm in diameter. Thought it was petrified wood but a hole at the cross section makes it look like a bone or antler? Surface pattern looks like antler. Has some weight to it and makes a rock like sound when put on a table or something.
  22. I recently purchased this along with a number of other fossils. The only drawback was that there was absolutely no information to be had on them, but I jumped at it since it was such a good deal. Now I'm hoping that somebody out there may have an idea what type of wood this is and where it might come from.
  23. Large fossil "petrified" wood

    And lastly the large, 13lb section of wood, found not associated with any layers- found in the little blue river of Kansas City last week. very dense for its size. I understand this may not be speciated but pretty none-the-less! And not to stri the pot, but I've read some articles stating that mineralization can happen very fast, and some "petrified wood" could only be a hundred years old or less. I would presume there are so many factors that enter into mineralization of wood that only some techniques and carbon dating could help define age? Thanks for looking! Bone
  24. Hi All, This specimen is from a pile of tumbled rocks, no provenance. My best is guess that is Rhynie chert with sections of silicified fungus or early plants. However, it might just look similar. No clear cellular structures are visible. The circles are 13 and 4 mm in diameter. An expert opinion would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  25. Petrified wood burl??
