  3. Someone told me to do the tongue test to see if there is suction, There was a very noticeable suction very strong suction
  4. Hi all Found this again in Mazon Creek Area Was fishing saw on bank edge sticking out was in three pieces clean up fit them together like the white to red colors in it what kind of stone? Not sure if sandstone some areas are starting to crystallize what do you think? 2 3
  5. I found this rock at Brick New Jersey Beach right on the seashore, what kind of fossil is this, could someone please help? Thanks!
  6. Is this rock or fossil? I see it in the creek beds in Missouri every now and then when I am fossil hunting.
  7. First post on the forum but figured this would be the best place to get some information. I found this "rock" yesterday while checking a bean field near Scottsbluff, NE. I'm an agronomist so I spend all summer wandering around in cultivated fields and this is the first "rock" of this nature I have found (lots of fossils in the area but usually just toe bones, vertebrae, etc...) Upon inspection it appeared much different than anything I've ever found. Unfortunately it looks to hat been hit with various farm implements over the year which has left some chunks missing. After researching online, I concluded that it may be a fossilized egg of some sort due to the shape and the cracking pattern. What do the "experts" think? Another image
  8. Good Evening! Would anyone by chance know how to identify this fossil? I found it interesting because of the "branches" coming out in a circular pattern. And at the center it appears to have some form of crystal that developed. The location of this fossil is Island Park, Eastern Idaho, in a boulder field on the south eastern side of the base of Mount Jefferson. If you have any questions or need more information, please let me know Any comments are greatly appreciated, thank you!
  9. Hi again folks. There are sparsely scattered chunks of sandstone and other rock here. Today I found this one barely exposed at the surface. It was extremely difficult to break in two and is full of sparkles, like small quartz flakes. It is not the normal sandstone. There appears to be a section of a crinoid and a spiral gastropod of sorts. I found no reference to it in the link posted above and have not seen another one here. Looks like it may be an "open" tapered coil where the coils do not touch one another, not sure though. Something new here every day .... never a dull moment. (unless I'm boring you with the same ol same ol) Kind regards.
  10. I've had this in my collection for afew years, i'd love to see if you guys can pick out anything you can ID for me. Sadly i have no location where this was found because it was a gift.
  11. Wasn't sure if this was a rock or fossil?
  12. I found this at Staiths in Yorkshire. Is it just a mark on the rock or is it a belemnite?
  13. Found by a friend in a creek near KC, Kansas. Never seen anything like this. Also, I'm new to all of this so I don't have the slightest clue what I'm looking at... Is it even real????
  14. Can anyone help with if this is just a rock. No luck finding any information. Found in north Texas at excavation site. Thanks.
  15. I found this by the beach and was wondering if it could possibly be a shark tooth?
  16. Hi guys i found this awesome pawprint on a beach in northern California. Any ideas what and where this belong? Kay
  17. I'm in Spokane Washington and found this in the yard today. I'm pretty certain its rock but it is really odd. We did have Native Americans in this area so I thought maybe some kind of grinding tool, but honestly I really have no idea. The guy who lived in our house before us collected rocks according to the neighbors, and I have found a few odd rocks since we lived here but this one seems like it could have a story. The dark spot is water and its all the same color.
  18. Is this anything? If it is something, what's unusual is that I found a broken drill artifact at the same spot and there is a perfect circle that appears drilled in the back of the possible claw or tooth. Found in northeast Ohio.
  19. Found by a friend digging a pad for a house in Taylor Ms, just outside Oxford Ms, not sure what it is but it stands out compared to surroundings. before we do anything other that hose
  20. I found this in North GA near Rome GA. I don't know what this is, but it has to be something.
