  1. a shell mound?

    Hi! There is a rock with fossils (?) my house. It's from my father, passed away about 10 years ago. I don't know what it is, but maybe it's from his China travel. I have searched some images of old sea animals fossil, but still don't have a idea. Is there anyone explain them? Thanks!
  2. Egg or Rock?

    My father lives in SE MN, south of Rochester. He lives on a farm on top of a hill and has been doing a lot of topo work. In doing so, he has discovered that almost every rock he picks up has what appears to be seashells and fossilized plants in them. His research led him to conclude that the fossils are in the range of 400 million years old. The other day he was walking his land and saw what he thought was a potato sticking out of the ground. He picked it up and was puzzled. It feels hard like a rock, is smooth, and most shockingly it glows when light is applied to it. Is this an egg of some sort?
  3. Strange veining

    Found this rock in a field on Central Texas has wierd viens look like hollow walls or double wall. More pics to come
  4. Found in colorado

    I found d this in nw Colorado. What is it? Coral, bone or just rock maybe?
  5. Hi, my space left for things is becoming smaller, so I thought I'd use my windowsill. I found different things online claiming different things. Will the rock colour fade or discolour at all due to being on the windowsill? Many thanks.
  6. What is this?

    Just wondering what it is.
  7. Rock Hunting Franklin NC

    Hey Fam! Going to be in Franklin, NC for a few days in October. I’m fixin to do as much rockhounding as possible which I believe goes without saying. I’m looking for resources in the form of Areas where I can sift, walk river banks and what mines (I probably only want to spend money on one) are worth the time devotion to. My parent’s place is on a mountain which is full of creeks. Am I bound to find some neat stuff just hopping from one to another? What can I expect? Any information is greatly appreciated!!! Edit: I grabbed a UV light off Amazon because I’m told Rubies and Garnets Fluoresce at night.
  8. Is this a fossil?

    Hi I found this rock a couple days ago and really didnt think it a fossil , but still in the back of my head the curiosity keeps growing. When i came across this awesome site where you can actually get answers for free, I thought, " ALRIGHT". I'm just kidding, but could someone please identify what this is? I live in northern California, but don't hold that against me. It's hard enough having to admit it. 7
  9. Rock or fossil

    I found this probably rock near Estes park Colorado, I’m pretty sure it’s a rock but I thought i would come here and ask just in case, so fossil or not?
  10. Croc or rock?

    Sounds better than geologic or vertebrate. The shape is obviously what caught my attention but the surface texture looked like rock so I was about to toss it when the bottom made me think twice. Still think rock but wanted your opinions. 1/2 inch long. Thanks and apologies for the finger nails.
  11. What is this?

    I am clueless as to what this is (more so than usual). It doesn’t look like the usual concretions. It doesn’t look like the usual shells. It doesn’t look like a fossil and I’ve never seen coral from Big Brook. It’s 1.75 x 1 inch and the bottom is concave
  12. Hi again, I’ve just posted my first find, and here is another I would like help with please. Found on the Isle of Wight Jurassic coast, grey coloured rock around 8cm in length, with what looks like some fish bone type markings. On the reverse side of the same rock is a round light grey circle about 1cm across with a thin white circle surrounding it. Please can anyone help with more information... thanks!
  13. Jurassic Coast ID please...

    Hi, first time fossil hunter here - so apologies in advance! Currently visiting the Isle of Wight Jurassic Coast and spent the day at the beach and have a couple of interesting finds - just not sure if what I found is actually anything more than just a pretty rock! So, this first one is about 11cm in length and had a sort of white slightly porous texture, with yellow brown markings. One marking has the texture of tiny bumps, whilst the other looks like smoother ridges. Can anyone please help?
  14. What's this cool fossil?

    Found on the beach of Lake Michigan in Sturgeon Bay, WI this past week. Approx 1" w x 3/4" h x 1/4" deep. Thank you!
  15. I was encouraged to share this in the forum so here it goes. I was given a pile of "amber" and two pieces that may or may not (most likely not) have something inside. After the "amber" failed the saltwater float test it was proposed that I may have copal, NOT amber. I tried my best to take as clear of pictures as my camera phone would allow. The first piece supposedly it has a "bug or stick or something" inside. The copal, if it really is copal, does not appear very clear, even with a light source behind it. The second piece is a little more transparent when the light shines through with the exception of the mysterious dark object lurking on the middle. (queue the spooky music!) Personally I think that both of these may just be dirt that accumulated in a crack when the copal was forming a long ago but this has apparently been a topic of hot debate. So if ya'll got any opinions on the matter, I'd love to hear them...or if you don't want to share your opinions, just tell me that I've discovered some weird new sub-species of dinosaur and I'll be happy with that. lol
  16. It's definitely a..thing?

    Look guys I have a... well its definitely a something? Is it a plant, the top of a crinoid, a broken tooth, a really tiny volcano??? No idea. And as a bonus I have no idea where it came from either. It was given to me ages when I was a kid. So if you've got any ideas on what the heck it might be, I'd love to hear 'em! Thanks!
  17. Hey everyone. I thought I'd share some of the things I found on my last fossil hunt. So.. Many.. Fossils! One might even say that there were a plethora of fossils. If I could, I would've taken them all with me, but sadly my backpack can only carry so many rocks. I was literally examining each rock I had, trying to decide which to carry back and which to leave behind and how many I could fit in my pants pockets before they started to fall down. Eventually I decided to just stop looking for fossils and hike back to the jeep. This lasted all of 3 seconds before I found another a beautiful byrozoan and was trying to figure out how to fit it in my pack. The byrozoan and the sponge below are my favorites since i don't see many of them and the brachipod in the matrix just looks cool. lol Its fascinating to look at these fossils and think about how Arizona used to be completely underwater long, long ago.
  18. trying to identify another find

    The front, back, side and bottom of whatever this could be? I could not find anything to measure it with but for now hopefully the pictures alone help for the meantime. The shape of it reminds me of a bone for some reason so that's my guess as to what it could be; not quite sure of what this texture on it is though, i scraped a bit of it off fairly easily and it was dusty brown coming off of it, but not too hard when scraping the surface it barely had any resistance. I tried scraping the exposed part of my other find; the iron concretion to compare the 2 and the concretion was much more durable on it's exposed part to try ruling out if it is just another ironstone concretion. It was found in the same brook called "big brook preserve" in central new jersey in the united states. Another possibility that I've came up with is that this find might be a concretion but not nearly as old and formed yet. Right now it could be anything. Thank you to whoever responds and helps with this post; very much appreciated.
  19. What do you think?

    Hey guys, I'm back with another ID question. The fossil I'm trying to identify is in the 1st picture. I think that what I have is a fossilized brachiopod WITHOUT the shell. What do you guys think? It's the same general shape, but the color and textures of this fossil look different than others I've found in the area. The symmetrical textured part in between the two humps, I've never seen before. Pictures 1,2, and 5 show the fossil in question and pictures 3 and 4 show examples of other brachiopods that I've found. The last picture is an example of a brachiopod that was broken in half, exposing the animal inside. (when I uploaded the post the pictures got out of order) So anyways, that's what I think I have but I'd really appreciate your thoughts on this. Ya'll have a lot more experience with these thing than I do so I welcome your opinions. Thanks!
  20. Hi everyone this is matt again today in the creek I found buried in the sand and rocks a nice coral fossil here are some photos
  21. Is this a fossil?

    I found this rock in the Badlands, SD and it looked like it could possibly be a fossil. I don’t have much background in this field so if anybody can provide any insight, that would be greatly appreciated! I did do the lick test on the rock and my tongue stuck ever so slightly (I think?)
  22. Did I find something

    So sorry I’m trying to understand this forum and I think I have now, so I apologize for posting this in another forum I was rock hunting while cleaning up the shore of the Ohio river and I found a rock that resembles a tooth... the more I look at it the more I think it is a tooth... what do u think
  23. Did I find something

    I was rock hunting while cleaning up the garbage on the shore of Ohio river and I found this. It resembles a petrified tooth of some sort. Did I find a rock or is it indeed a tooth?
