  1. Carboniferous fossil ID

    I have this fossil here which at first glance I perceived to be some kind of seed, however I’m not sure. These are both from the same individual, just the positive and negative sides. It is just shy of half an inch long. It was found in the North Attleboro section of the Rhode Island formation
  2. I found this nice specimen while hunting for 'white fern' plates out in Centralia, PA. Based off of the size, shape and definition, I'm curious if its a seed of some sort? I left the seed un-prepped with the white silicate mix still present, would love help with an ID
  3. Seed or something else?

    Hi, was on a road trip a few weeks ago for work and stopped at a spot where rocks had been excavated along the road. These rocks where full of partial leaf imprints and stems, alongside Trilobites and bivalves. The first pic is of a few partials I found, second pic has the fossil in question and a stem or leaf of sorts. I am not sure of the age as I'm still trying to piece together how there are leaves with the devonian fossilsI'm guessing that the the rocks are from different layers, the fauna bieng middle to late devonian while the Flora is permian in age. Anyway, will not be getting a chance to go out there anytime soon again. What do you think the spherical fossil could be? Thanks
  4. Agatized Coral? Nut? Seed?

    Found in landscaping bed in south Texas I think it could be a solitary coral.
  5. Trigonocarpus?

    I recently collected this plate out of a block of shale full of Alethopteris fronds from the spoils of a coal mine in Pennsylvania. You can see some of the Alethopteris on this piece. My initial impression is that these are seeds, with Trigonocarpus serving as the kinda catch-all for Pennsylvanian fern seeds. However, I have never seen an example of Trigonocarpus that has these markings. Both of these fossils have little, golf ball-like dents on them. The fossils measure 4cm and 2.5cm respectively. Has anyone seen something like this before? Do these markings mean that these are something different than Trigonocarpus? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  6. Hello! and I hope you are having a wonderful afternoon! I found these two plant fossils and was unsure to what they might actually be. They look a lot like modern seeds but I know I am not always informed and I keep having a slight suspicion they could be apart of some other plant material! If anyone could help identify and confirm these plant fossils I would be very grateful! I have found leaves from Neuropteris sp , Cyclopteris sp, and a few other plant species in these types of limestone! Info that I could gather: Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Possibly Upper Winterset Limestone Specimen #1: Two halves of one seed? (roughly 9mm) Other half: Specimen #2: Larger and wider seed? (roughly 3mm) I unfortunately do not have the other half to this one!
  7. These were found east of Burns, Oregon in a road cut. I thought maybe redwood but the structure is vertical not horizontal. Can anyone tell me the name of my little guys? Thanks! Nyla
  8. Unknown Lake Erie Fossil

    I am trying to identify this fossil found on Lake Erie shore. Unusual find, please assist with identifying.
  9. Identify please

    Found this petrified seed of some kind in South Bend, Indiana underneathe a recently fallen tree.
  10. Seed preserved on Carboniferous plant?

    I found this plant a few months ago in South Yorkshire, UK. It is from the Pennine Middle Coal Measures formation. Preserved on the plant is an unidentified object which I suspect may be a seed. It seems that the positive side of the object is preserved on the half of the rock with the negative part of the plant. Any help to identify the object would be much appreciated. Thanks, Daniel
  11. What is this???

    Does anyone know what this concretion is? It came from Mazon Creek and was listed as a Unusual Rock concretion fossil. I purchased it ten years ago and am hoping others like this have been found since then and a description determination has been made. Help.
  12. Very tiny .... seed?

    found this very tiny thing on a sandy looking stone it is very hard and embedded in the stone. It appears to be a seed like object but I am no expert it was found West of Houston in some gravel from the Brazos River. I have taken pics from different angles and next to a ruler. thank you for looking
  13. Hi to Forum members; I am an amateur rock collector who likes to look for fossils. For the most part I have not found anything fantastic but I am hopeful. I kindly request any information and or comments about a recent flint specimen from my back garden in Ipswich, Tuddenham Road. I have other photos of the flint that show unusual structures. On those photos, I used my photo app to adjust the exposure to get more fine detail. If it will help, I would gladly share. Also from my back garden, I found a petrified seed/pod/nut shell. Can someone help me identify what it is. May thanks! Munchy2
  14. Douglas Pass Colorado

    Fossils found at Douglas Pass, Colorado this weekend. Seed?, Unidentified leaves. Shells. (Elimia tenera and unidentified clam). Plant fossils were found near the Radar Dome. The shells were found at a much lower level.
  15. Eocene seed pod?

    I recently found this on the foreshore of warden point, an Eocene, London clay deposit on the isle of sheppey, it has a woody internal structure that the pics don’t really show and it is kind of symmetrical, is it a seed pod, thanks
  16. Tooth? Seed?

    Came across this picked up on Myrtle Beach last year. I set it aside but figured you guys might know what it is!
  17. Seed Fern

    I see a fair amount mentioned online about seed ferns. How did these differ from modern day spore bearing ferns? Where these seed ferns true ferns?
  18. Ok, found this one tonight walking Myrtle Beach. It kind of reminds me of a walnut shell. The center seems to be some kind of seam. I'm including a photo of the opposite side but it's not as great as I hoped. Hard to show detail, but it's concave as if it held something. Ideas? -- Paula
  19. Amber inclusion ID please

    Hi guys, 3mm long in Baltic amber. Was wondering if this was a seed or a leaf? Best images I can do I'm afraid. @Amber Man
  20. seeds or nuts?

    I think I posted these years ago but I don't know what happened to that. I acquired these from the same old (late) rockhound couple from whom I got a number of other 'orphaned' items that caused me to join the Forum looking for more info. The people I got them from could not remember where they came from. They are obviously some sort of nut or seed. They are rather lightweight, but they still sink in water and are almost rocklike, which you can tell by tapping them on your teeth. If they aren't fossil, I'd say they've been buried for some time. For all I know they could be from around here. Most of the old couple's stuff was from around here on the Island (Upper Cretaceous Nanaimo Group, mostly), though they did have some stuff from elsewhere in North America too. Also, every now and then I come across something in my hunts that are reminiscent, such as the thing in the next post below, though this one is squashed - perhaps the 4 above came out of one of the coal-producing formations in Nanaimo area. But if on the other hand someone recognizes them from a different location, or what their ID may be, I'd appreciate knowing about it.
  21. Amber inclusion, seed?

    Hello, could anybody help me with identification of this piece poping out of the amber? It's 5mm (0,2 inch) long and at first sight it looks like a seed. I don't know where is this piece of amber from. Thanks for any help.
  22. what is this?

    found this little thing it looked interesting it looks like it was once prickly? it also looks like it had a stem? is this a seed or perhaps a sponge?
  23. Seeds?

    I have a couple of rocks that look like seeds. What do you think? Do those look like bite marks on the one on the left? Let's hear your thoughts. The one on the right was in pea gravel at a playground in Iowa, I find fossil shell fossils in pea gravel sometimes. I'm not sure where I got the other one, in central Iowa.
  24. Fossil? Or junk

    This is about an inch big
