  1. Fossil ?

    This is Carrabassett slate from Mayfeild, Maine. Can anyone read what these features are ?
  2. This may be a silly question, but how do I know if something is actually a fossil or just a weird shaped rock? Also, if anyone knows - how do these weird shaped rocks form in the slate/shale if they aren't fossils? Not looking for an ID (yet!), just trying to figure out how all the weirdly shaped rocks came to be! I went hiking with my mom in our backyard because she found what we believe to be nautiloid fragments (link to ID thread) and we wanted to see if we could get more. Well we found lots of oddly shaped rocks, but are unsure if they are actually anything. If it helps, we are in a creek in Groveland, Livingston County, New York. A geologist friend said that creek bed looks like shale slate. The only thing we pulled out that I have pictures of right now is a long wormy looking one. One picture of it in the rock and three after we got it out. I haven't been able to take any pictures with size reference sorry I don't have it with me right now, but from memory I'd estimate it's at least ~12-15 cm (5-6 inches). Thanks!
  3. Tiny fossils?

    Hi, I was out looking for fossils at Kinnekulle in Sweden and found these in the slate. I'm wondering if they may possibly be very small fossils? each one measures approximately 3 millimeters. Anyone know what they might be?
  4. Hi new to the forum I found this many years ago walking along a beach not sure what it is or best ways to maybe extract them as there is a few of what you see throughout the rock.
  5. Creek bed fossil

    I found this fossil a few weeks ago. It was in a creek bed that flows during the wet season but has pools in the dry. I know the creek has sandstone, but it also looks like it has limestone and possibly slate. There is also a lot of rocks containing rust. This fossil appears to be stained with it. I am located in Western Kentucky near Hopkinsville. One side looks like it is ribs. The other side is smooth and one part is unusually round. There are pockets that appear to be filled with sediment that has solidified into rock. I've added pictures from all sides and others with measurements. I will add them as replies since the files are too large. I wish I had more, but this is all I have.
  6. I believe the same “super silver” material (that I found from another trip here)may have once been present in the round areas on this piece of slate. But not sure as I didn’t see any anywhere this time. Do you have any ideas what may have caused them? I think the rock is slate. Right? It was found near a river in Ohio. Thanks!
  7. Really nice plant fossil needs IDing

    My friend recently kindly helped me buy a really cool plant fossil, the slate is around 24 cm in length and is extremely heavy and solid. There are multiple other leaves in the slate, I have no clue where it is from or what species of plant it is. Is it a kind of Palm plant? All information would be helpful. Regards, indominus rex
  8. Ichthyosaurus bones in slate?

    Hi, I saw this slate from Holzmaden,Germany,where many many ichthyosauruses remains have been found,online being sold as « ichthyosaurus bones » Are they really bones? I can see some possible structure but I’m not sure... I never saw any 2D bones like that in a slate. What do you think? Here are the picture I have. Is it rare if it is??? Regards
  9. When I found it the stone had been used as part of the stone wall. Wondering if someone can Identify the plant and how old it might be.
  10. Steneosaurus tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 1 cm long and 0.15 cm wide Steneosaurus (crocodile) tooth from the quarry Kromer in Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic).
  11. ID help please - Bay of Fundy, Eastern Canada

    Found on a beach outside of Windsor, Nova Scotia, Canada - closer to Cheverie. Beautiful slate beaches and near huge gypsum deposits. March 2016
  12. Haven't A Clue.

    Was about to throw away this piece of slate that I was using in my rock garden. I noticed what looks like an "8" see attached picture.
