  1. Best of my flora collection

    I just wanted to add to my ammonite and mammal collection posts with the best of my plant material. Hope you enjoy. Thank you for looking. 1. South Carolina 2. S.E Oregon 3. Arizona 4+5 My favourite of all from Central Oregon with woodworm holes. 6.Madagascar 7.This is called Peanut wood because of the pattern . Carnarvon. Australia
  2. I hammered this free from a chunk of ironstone. Ironstone matrix. I thought it was completely round like a marble nut the more I inspected I see some traits that this is a designed specimen with a symmetrical pattern and some unique patterns. Any ideas?
  3. ID please on a seed ?

    I any ideas on this set of small fossil from Torres Vedras, Portugal. They on a website for sale Thank you cheers Bobby
  4. https://imgur.com/a/J0Twa Originally posted on r/fossilid on reddit.com. Did not get much reception. I literally know nothing about fossils except a few tidbits in recognizing basic things like crinoids. I do not remember exactly where it was found, but geologic maps indicate my area, Columbia, Missouri, is roughly in the carboniferous layer. I'm sorry I don't have many good views of it--I do not have any good tools to readily chip away at it. Let me know if you guys have any more questions! Thank you so much!
  5. Please identify fossil, seed or rock

    This was found in a riverbed in Indiana three decades ago. I have yet to figure out exactly what it might be. A gem show expert said it was a Crinoid Sea Lilly but it does not really match Sea Lilly photos posted on line. It is 4 1/2” long, 7” around and weighs 320 grams. Thank you so much for your input!
  6. Here is another item that I am looking for an ID on- It is a Pennsylvanian seed from the Manning Canyon Shale, Utah. I am thinking "Trigonocarpus" or "Cordaicarpus"- any suggestions or ID?
  7. I found this in the Green River near Black Diamond Wa. It appears to be a seed pit? or can it be something else? Geologic age is Tertiary
  8. Cretaceous ,seed - Hell Creek

    Out at a hadrosaur dig site and came across this seed. Can anyone identify it? Thanks for looking!
  9. Seed?

    From the album Carbondale, PA

    I found a whole plate of these, but somehow only the one example made it home. 13mm long Carbondale, PA Lewellyn Formation Pennsylvanian period 299-323 myo
  10. Trying to ID this type of fossil

    Please forgive me for my fossil ignorance, as I do not know much about them. I am trying to find our what kind of fossil this could be. Or maybe it isn't. I'm not sure. I have looked on the internet for awhile and found nothing really similar to it. If this is easy and I'm just an idiot, I'm sorry haha. Just thought you all could help me here. Thank you
  11. Carboniferous seed?

    Hi everybody. Recently I found this fossil in the coal measures, but I don't know what is It. Maybe seeds? What do you think? Regards Juan
  12. Seed and Coprolite?

    Yesterday I looked in my batch of unattended rocks and found one very mixed fossiliferous rock I had been meaning to explore. These are two of the specimens I found inside:
  13. Brought back from the site 7/6. Seed?
  14. Northeastern Ohio - Seed?

    Here is another found this past summer. The first two are counterparts to each other. It is raised, like an almond. I wonder if the third is what it looks like inside??
  15. This again is small, but I believe it is another of the Cardaites Seed?
  16. Brought this one home, and again, am not sure what it is?
  17. Found today, any ideas?
  18. Cardiocarpon also called Samaropsis

    From the album Carboniferous Fossils-Ohio

    Northeast Ohio
  19. Hi everyone, Here is another mystery fossil we found last June while on a Forest Service dig in South Dakota. It was found in an area that we think was once a shoreline, since the matrix ranged from sandy to iron-rich conglomerate layers with both aquatic (rays, gars, turtle, etc.) and terrestrial fauna (hadrosaur, T. rex, thescelosaur, etc.). Our best guess is some kind of seed, but we really have no clue. I forgot to take measurements when I was at the lab and no longer have ready access, so I apologize in advance. It is pretty small - you should be able to get an idea of the size from the adjacent Xacto knife (8 mm dia.).
  20. Some Sorta Nut?

    Hi everyone! When I was a little kid I found this fossil while swimming in Lake Cumberland in Kentucky. I've always cherished it, but now I kinda what to know what the heck it is! I'm guessing some sorta nut or seed, but I'd like to get more specific answers. Any ideas?? Thanks!
  21. Fossilized Tree Seed?

    Hi everyone, I was browsing the forums and came across a post (http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/51360-fossilized-figs/), since closed, that reminded me of some possible tree seeds that I found in the Hell Creek Formation of Montana, in the same chunk of sandstone as a small t rex tooth. The "fossilized figs" originally posted in that topic didn't look like a fossil, but later on there was a link to someone selling fossil figs on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Fossil-Fig-in-Matrix-Lance-Creek-Wyoming-Dinosaur-era-/361133992105?pt=UK_Collectables_RocksFossils_Minerals_EH&hash=item54154368a9 Long story short, I don't know much about plants, but the shape, as well as the similar age and location, reminded me of my "tree seeds." I have two views of the first: Here is another: So, do I have some fossil figs, or fossil seeds, or just seed-shaped rocks? Thanks in advance
  22. more big brook nj THANKS! for all your input

    From the album Christine's collection

    Found in Mazonia Braidwood, Illinois. Carboniferous.
  24. I found this while fossil hunting yesterday. The exposure I was hunting in is close to a creek shore, and it's obvious the water level rises to its height by the rounding of the nearby stones and the fossil itself (evident on its backside). Other finds in the same area included mostly coral and brachiopods, as well as pieces of coal. I'm no expert on fossils, but when I found this the first thought was a nut shell or seed. But, I know you don't find nuts during this time period fossilized, especially anything this size, and I can't even tell what type of modern day nut it resembles. I then thought it was possibly the underside of a shell, but it has two distinct protrusions inside which twist together, again resembling the inside of some type of nut or seed. Basically, I don't know what this is and would appreciate the help or thoughts. Thanks
