  1. I was on the Dry Frio River and I was climbing up on some limestone boulders and I noticed this square hole in the top of this rock. I have no clue how it got there but there were no rocks in it. Just some dust. No evidence of carving. It's about a foot deep. 5" x 5" square hole. Somebody found an old spongebob fossil maybe. Lol
  2. Stone or Fossil

    I've seen pictures of certain fossilized eggs that look similar to this. I was thinking it is some form of sea floor dwelling organism.. i'm still learning so identification is important. Anybody know?
  3. Could it be a fossil?

    Hi everyone, i found this in a little crop of well-stratified limestone/dolomite in the middle of the carbonate platform. What is it?
  4. Found this in South Missouri near Lake Ozarks. We were playing along a small river. I am new at fossil ID but love to collect cool rocks & fossils. Mainly just wanted to share, but would love some input thoughts...

  10. Hi everyone I recently got a large sandstone block (~20cm x 20cm x 20cm) which is like a shell deathbed (see pics). There's a layer of weathered material on the surface but underneath it's a nice piece. I was wanting to try and clean it up and do something nice with it. My ideas were to either (1) square it off and polish the block or (2) Square it off and slice it into multiple thin slabs (maybe 2-3cm thick) which could then be polished. I'm not sure if it's bad practice to slice up a fossil or not. Anyway, I was hoping someone might be able to give me some advice on what tools would be appropriate for cutting a block this size or how to go about polishing the block afterwards. Alternatively, if anyone has any other cool ideas for it I'd be keen to hear them. Any advice would be really appreciated! Cheers
  11. Just Rocks or Fossils?

    I found some what I think are rocks at Mazonia that have interesting patterns. They feel gritty like sandstone but I have never seen it with these patterns. Is this a type of sandstone? Could they be fossils? The last two are opposite sides of the same sample.

  14. Fossil Or Something else?

    I found this in a hill in Raubsville Pennsylvania where there are no river rocks where I found it, There seems to be faint lines going around the top over and over, the newer scratches are white.

  17. I know this is not a fossil but I need help with identifying the rock
  18. Found this in the water on the beach in Omiš, Croatia. There are three prominant dark curved lines across one of the surfaces. Dont know if its just a rock or if its something else?
  19. Desert find

    I found this piece out here in the NM desert while walking our dogs.....we are the only ones that live out here so I'm not sure how this got here...or has it always been here under the sand?Can anyone tell me if this is anything?It looks like a turtle egg but is solid
  20. Hello everyone, it's my first post here. Recently around the Gulf at Muscat, Oman, I found this tube-like structure bind strongly to a rock after some digging with my hands under the water on a remote small beach (no signs of previous visits there.) There's no sand on that shore, instead a coarse-sand-like nature of very small shell and rock fragments. The start of this tubular structure is very narrow, and its radius increases as it appears to curl in a life-like form of some organism. Unfortunately the top appears missing when I found it.
  21. What is it?

    Found In Raubsville Pennsylvania
  22. I have absolutely no background in fossils or identification, but ran into this during a trail run in N. Georgia. Just happened to look down during a quick break. Size wise, the area pictured is maybe a half dollar coin. Curious if this is even anything, and if so, what it might have been. Thanks, Adam
  23. Fossil of snake head perhaps?

    A friend from Somalia gave me this rock. he said he found in Hargeisa (northern Somalia). That's all I know about. any ideas what it could be?. the last picture is teh under side.
  24. Is this a fossil or just a rock?
