  1. Fossil Lycophytes from Texas

    Hey Everyone, I need some help. Still not sure but think this might be a fossil piece of Lycophytes or similar species. Found North Sulfur River in Delta County, Tx about two weeks ago. I cannot find anything online that shows that this species or similar was in Tx. My web hunting skills are not the best in the world though. Any responses are greatly appreciated.
  2. Possible petrified wood?

    Hello we have had tremendous amounts of rain where I am, causing the rivers to run wild Andalusia areas to flood. now that it has subsided, I like to go and look for unique things I’m the rivers (gold too ) ove always collected things because they look different or they have a beauty about them. a lot of the hillside along the river has been exposed and there we’re aloe of interesting things around. If I had stayed any longer though I’d have been burnt to a crisp. could anyone shed light on what these could be? I could only come up with possible petrified wood. But thought maybe it was something to do with the fires we had but they are heavy and definitely rock solid. Found at the river at the base of some cliffs in glenreagh.
  3. Found this Fossil at Big Brook in New Jersey. It is a marine fossil site and I was wondering what this object is. It has the texture of a tooth or fossilized material. The object has a cone shape with a pointy tip at the end. On the inside, the object has lines and indents running down the side in 1 direction Images
  4. Tooth ID

    Tooth identification needed for two separate finds. Found in Southport, NC (Brunswick County) near the Cape Fear inlet. Common place for bones too wash ashore. Teeth are a new find. Pictures below. Thanks!
  5. Hey everyone, I'm brand new to fossil preparation and want to try on a Green River knightia fossil. I'm in Canada though and have no idea where to find unprepped fossils of any kind. I feel like this is something I'd actually be good at as a hobby to get me through some winter blues. I've been obsessed with fossils since I was 3. Does anyone have an idea of where I might find unprepped Green River specimens? Thank you!
  6. Hey Everyone, If you've been able to get to the NSR lately pickings are slim. I decided to head out yesterday at sunrise for another shot. Not hopeful because last few trips I have only found a few gastropod and small teeth. Yesterday was much better. Figured I would share my two favorite finds. Trachyscaphites spiniger ammonite covered in calcite Nice size gastropod semi-covered with calcite.
  7. Hunting in Oklahoma

    A former student once told me that he hunted for fossils on the Grand River in Ok. He graduated, went to law school, and all I could remember was Grand River and fossils. My son and I were due to take my grandchildren to Coffeyville, KS to meet their mother for her holiday visitation and I thought of the Grand River. I asked and my fellow forum members listened and Grandpa pointed me in the right direction and he was right about the fossil rich area. A big thanks Grandpa! We left early so we could stop and do a little dirt kicking, but it had started raining and I am on strict orders to stay away from crowds, unmasked people, and cold, wet weather. The good news is yesterday, we left early to meet my ex-daughter-in-law again in Coffeyville, KS. The weather was nice, so we stopped at the Grand River to kick up a little dirt, which was really mud, black mud and we hit pay dirt. Walking from the truck to the river, I found an almost perfect trilobite and it only got better. I have fossils that I am going to be doing research on for a while, well after I cleanthe black dirt off. I have hunted in red clay for so long that I thought the river bank was oozing oil. Okay, I never said I was a geologists. As soon as I do a little cleaning, I’ll post pictures. Now here’s another question. We arrived in Coffeyville an hour or so early and drove around. The Verdigris River has an outcropping of shale in one place that I think may be housing fossils but we could not find a road to the river where we could access the river bank. Anyone from Kansas have an idea of river access near Coffeyville?
  8. Is this a Fossil?

    Greetings all, first post! So I found this bone in the Olentangy River (Columbus, Ohio) the other day, sort of looked out of place? It passed the flame test, is it a fossil?
  9. Alum Bluff

    My family is visiting Panama City, and I was hoping to visit Alum Bluff to hunt fossils. I read about quite a few people hunting there. To be on the safe side, I e-mailed the Nature Conservancy, since it is my understanding they own the property. Well, they said NO: "Fossil collecting is prohibited at our Preserve properties. I do hope you will hike our Garden of Eden Trail, the weather has been great! Thank you and if you have any questions feel free to contact us." Well, we are disappointed. I don't know the laws about ownership of river banks in FL. Is any area of the river bank owned by the state, and thus legal for collecting?
  10. Potential fossil sites

    I have been doing some Google maps searching for sites that may yield a fossil or two. I found a few sites that look to me to have potential. Fortunately they are close to my house. I put the coordinates into my marine GPS and I am prepared to go take a look. What is your perception of these Google images from a fossil potential perspective?
  11. Flowrock with a fossil

    I think I finally found a fossil within a piece of flowrock!?!?!? Found in the same area as the other flowrock pieces in N central Ohio, in a river. Nothing superb but I’m excited! Looks like a shell to me- right? Thanks!
  12. Grand River OK

    I am going to be driving through Tulsa tomorrow and remember a few years back finding some fossils on the Grand River. I don’t remember where but I do remember a bridge. It was one of those road trips my husband and I take and he wanted to photograph some birds and while he took the pictures I found a few fossils. I looked through old posts here and found something about 412, Grand River, and power plant. Could anyone give me specific directions? I will name the first fossil I find after the person who can direct me to the river. Thanks so much.
  13. Hi- this is such a large piece and it looks like tree bark or wood , but it’s a rock. Could it be petrified wood or plant root? ( I keep finding small pieces like this as well.) Found in N central Ohio, river. If the location wasn’t known would you think it may be one of those ? Just curious. I guess I’m asking what to look for because I drag tooooo many “ rocks” home, Thanks again for all help .
  14. Oyster or rock?

    Probably just another rock but sure has the shape of an oyster, in my opinion. Thought I’d ask....thanks for your help.
  15. Sea Urchin...Artifact?

    Hey Everyone, Found this the other day at NSR. This part of NSR is in Delta County, Tx. I was curious and thought it was an artifact as it was found in the same general area as the golodrina point, quarts crystal and pendant. Artifact website is intrigue but was wondering if it could be a urchin spine. Roughly 1.5" in length. Thoughts? Any input is appreciated. Planko
  16. Anything?

    Is this possibly a plant fossil or something else? Found in Ohio river, north central area. The small dot like marks on this rock are similar to other marks I’ve found on other rocks in the same area. Just wondering what it could be or how it was formed? Thanks for your help.
  17. NSR Bone Unknowns

    Hel everyone. I have been here watching and learning like always. Haven't posted in awhile as I have been able to identify most items. These two were found end of last month in the NSR, Delta County, TX. Sorry for the shiny spots. Just washed them off with water. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
  18. Rock or petrified toe???

    My dad found this rock in the Vermillion River in Illinois last weekend during a camping trip. While my dad insists it's a petrified toe or a toe that was possibly covered in mud then compressed (or something of the like???? I'm not quite sure...), I personally think it's just a rock. Can someone please help officially determine what exactly it is? Thank you! -Abby
  19. Possible fossil find. Need ID

    Bottom is the size of a Kennedy Half Dollar. Found in a river bed of the Los Padres Nat'l forest in Southern California. Have found other fossils here in the past. Mostly clam shell fossils. Thanks! Dave
  20. Can use some help please

    I feel like these may be something plant related because of the structure, small dots on the one piece, and the leaf print I see on a couple of the pieces. I found several pieces similar to these in the same area . Some are really dark and heavy/dense. Some look squared off or broken off at the bottom. They just look uncommon or unlike the other rocks found around that area. Found in a river in mid Ohio area. Any ideas ? Thanks for all your help!
  21. Hi Everybody.. I'm not a fossil hunter (just an interested bystander), but my five-year old son found this while exploring the shallows of the Rio Grande near our home, just north of Albuquerque, New Mexico. I'm 99% sure its fossilized and not just a bone. It's about 9 cm by 5.5 cm. You can see its smooth and curved on one side, and has a sort of sponge-like texture that would remind you of the inner part of a bone on the other. Any guesses on what it could be? Thanks in advance for any input!
  22. Is this bone?

    Hey everyone, This is on another site. They are stuck between claw or talon. Thoughts? Found in the mud in the Walnut River, Kansas.
  23. Fossil bone?

    Anyone know what this is from. Found under a bridge on the Smokyhill River
  24. Is this a fossil or just two different rock types. One softer that has worn in the shape of a tooth? I found it in a river in Wicklow in Ireland. Any comments appreciated.
  25. Some Sort of Jaw?

    Hey Fossil Gang, I had a surprising find along Canon River in Northfield Minnesota (coordinates 44.461901, -93.158759). I was skatingboarding and noticed that the banks of the river were pretty rocky so I thought it would be worth investigating, sure enough I found what appeared to be some sort of bone attached to a piece of rock protruding about half way out of the sandy soil. To me it looks like some sort of mammal jaw although I'm not sure (new to fossil hunting). I'm not sure but it seems to be more modern. If any of y'all have any input it would be greatly appreciated!
