  1. Fossil Identication

    This fossil was found in WV. Potomac Highlands. It looks to be an animal. The stone is a sandstone type. What do I Have? Thanks
  2. Fossil Identication

    This seems to be a plant. Found in Potomac Highlands of West Virgina. Stone is sandstone. What is fossil? Thanks!
  3. Help for my thesis

    Hi, I come here because I need some help. I just collected samples for my thesis and I´ve just realized that my samples are sandstones with many mollusca fossils. My problem here is that, I dont know how to extract the fossils without destroying them. Please help me, I need this so much, and I cant find anything about dissolving sandstones. Greetings From Monterrey, México.
  4. Fossil Bird? Hatchling perhaps

    A friend of mine own 30 acres along the ridge of North Mountain near Martinsburg. He uses an excavator to find stones for stone masonry. Walking the site the other day I noticed this laying in a cut. Thought it was fossil plant, closer look seemed to show feathers and long neck head with beak? Most of fossils I've seen there have been marine life. Could this be a bird?
  5. I found this specimen in Wyoming's Bighorn basin, off one of the roads north of the city of Shell. I can't decide if it's a claw or a leaf, or perhaps something else entirely. On a side note, the matrix (sandstone? maybe just mud) is crumbling so I decided to cover the specimen with resin. I've yet to apply resin to the cavity in the other half of the stone. Suggestions for further preservation and a way to safely remove the matrix around the piece would be appreciated.
  6. Hi everyone! I was playing around with some matrix fragments from the phosphate deposits of Morocco and decided to give it a dip in water to see what would happen. What surprised me is how quickly the pieces crumbled into tiny clumps. Practically 80% of the matrix was gone in less than 10 seconds, dissolved by the water. I could very well have picked up a piece from dried mud and it would give similar results. I always thought the Moroccan stuff was a kind of sandstone, but what I saw suggests it is more of a clay-type rock? Then again, can the matrix even be considered a rock given how "fragile" it is? Would love to hear your thoughts! Jay
  7. Bone in Sandstone?

    I live in north central NM on the continental divide. Is it possible that there is an actual bone covered with sand sticking out of this sandstone?
  8. Need help with identification

    Maybe some type of Brachiopod, or Coral
  9. Ammonite

    From the album WhodamanHD's Fossil collection.

    Ammonite, other than that i don't know anything about this one, I don't even remember where I got it.

  11. Morrocan sandstone with fossils

    From the album WhodamanHD's Fossil collection.

    I removed a mosasaur tooth from this. Bought at a fossil store. Various bone, identity unknown unless it is associated with the mosasaur tooth.
  12. I found a really cool Calamites fossil with exquisite detail on a wet day a couple months ago, but after a week or so of keeping it indoors, the details started to fade and the colors became dull. It springs back to life when damp, but that only lasts so long and I fear that annually applying water might eventually wear the fossil. I think I've read somewhere that you can use vegetable oil to keep rocks/fossils looking saturated, but I was wondering if that might cause any structural damage or any other ill effects to a sandstone-based fossil. Thanks!
  13. No idea what this is

    My father asked me to see if i could find out what this is. Is it just a natural formation or something else? This is the only picture he sent me but I can get him to send more if needed.
  14. Can anyone name this fossil?

    I am new to fossils... I found this on the rocky shore of Cabrillo Beach, San Pedro, California. The rock is a hard sandstone. Any idea about the fossils?
  15. Pattern of Ripples in Sandstone

    Hi everyone, My girlfriend and I were hiking near Red Rock Canyon in Southern Nevada yesterday and came across an interesting pattern of pronounced ridges in the rock. My first thought was that they are fossilized water ripples, which have been found in the park. But on one edge the ripples stop in a very clear tapered line, which seems out of place for a shore line. I wish we had put something in the photos to get a better scale of the pattern but you can see my knee and foot in one picture. We got hooked on fossil hunting about a year ago would love to find out more about this pattern. Thank you very much for your help. -- Aaron
  16. huge nodule?

    This is roughly 5', think there's anything in the middle perhaps? Gonzales TX
  17. Is this petrified wood?

    Hi Folks, 2nd post. I came here to see if I could get a large fossil identified, but while I was taking pics I also snapped one of this weird, possible fossil that I suspect may be petrified wood. Here it is, sorry for my poor camera ability: This was found in some suburban greenspace area near Kansas City, MO. It has a very strong "linearity" to it, as if it was once a section of log. It might be petrified wood, but I'd not be surpirsed to find out that it isn't. For one, it has the linearity I mentioned, a definite orientation to the thing. But the details of this "grain" ar not as defined as I've seen on confirmed petrified wood. It is also suspiciously lightweight and soft, like sandstone, not very dense and hard as the other petrified wood I've seen. I'm taking the chance someone can recognize it. This last bonus item is not a fossil at all, definitely a shale-like rock, also found in KS, any one know what this is? It is strongly stratified, grey, with bronze flecks in it. The point you can see in the pic is of modern manufacture. Thanks for looking!
  18. Fossilized bone segment found in creek bed in NE Alabama... Found near sandstone and chert in a dry creek. Definitely turned to stone... Could drive a nail and also sounds like rock when tapped. Will also add pics of other side and both ends.
  19. Snake?

    Hello, I am new to the forum and seeking some information on what I have found. This was found yesterday in Manford, Oklahoma along the Arkansas River basin. It appears to be sandstone and several layers had fossil shells. I saw this in a newer layer than the shells are in and it appears to my untrained and ignorant eye to be a snake, a lizard, some kind of serpentine fish, etc... Can anyone shed some light on this for me? If you need any more information I will do my best. Thanks!!
  20. fish scale in sandstone?

    Hi This is scale fish ? Age:Oligocene ( Krośnieński sandstone ). Location: Carpathian mountain , Beskidy , Southern Poland. In this sandstone fragments outside the plant have not heard about fish. And this piece interested me.
  21. Hi, I need help identifying whether or not what I have is a positive cast of a fossil footprint. The "footprint" itself is about 5-6 inches long and maybe 3 inches across. The stone it is sitting on feels like a sandstone, but the "footprint" is very hard rock, definitely not sandstone. Thanks!
  22. Embedded in Sandstone

    Found this embedded in sandstone in Overton County, Tennessee. Does anyone know what it is? Thanks. -Dan
  23. Haven't been out to hunt much yet, but I am planning to go out this weekend. So far I know of four general animals found on my property from the Pierre shale (baculites, gastropods, muscles, and brachiopods or bivalves) I have also found some small chunks of petrified wood laying around. but i was wondering if anyone had advice for hunting the sandstone? I am aware of layers that have well preserved fossils here, but I haven't found a very good way of exposing them.
  24. What is this stone and what are the lines??

    Hi all, This is more of a geology question but the attached item is sandstone. I don't think sandstone is known for fossils-us it? Anyway the attached lines in the stone intrigue me. I was told these may be from a glacier. Someone said a plow but where it was found was never plowed but on a Native American site. Anyway , are these grooved fossils, glacial or man made such as abrading?
