  1. Any idea what this is?

    Hello! This (potential?) fossil was found down at lake Huron by Goderich Ontario, Canada. It was given to me by someone else because the pattern is reminiscent of a spider web. I'm more of an arachnid collector than a fossil collector, so I have no idea where to begin with this one! I hoped someone would have an idea of what it is, if it's a fossil at all! It's about 1 inch and 1/3rd in diameter, and roughly one half 2/3rds of an inch 'tall' when laid flat. It may be difficult to tell from the images, but the 'front' dips inwards towards the center. I hope that helps in addition to the images.
  2. claw or tooth ID please

    I think it was found in Canyon Lake TX- it should be limestone.
  3. I found this polished stone at the beach recently. It looks like a sandwich made of wood. At first I thought petrified wood but the central part has tiny pores like a bone. Ideas?
  4. New item I found

    I found this in eastern tennessee along with many other itemts.
  5. Stone found on beach in Wales

    Hi everyone! I found this yesterday on a pebbley/rocky shore near Solva in Pembrokeshire, West Wales, UK. Does anyone have any ideas what it could be? The stone is roughly 15cm x 15cm and was found on the mid shore. Thanks in advance! Hannah
  6. Plant, Bone or Stone

    This item was uncovered while excavating my basement in 2007. After watching a series of videos from the Illinois Geological Survey last year, I believe it is petrified wood of some early tree's growing in Northern Illinois between glacial periods. it weighs 17.2 pounds and its about 10 inches tall. It has a large flat area and another smaller flat area on its opposite. I don't see rings as you might see in tree stumps which is concerning. Rather it has vertical lines on most of it sides with interesting crevasses like an old tree limb might have. It is appears broken at the top with an almost rotted core look to it. Can you help me identify and age this item?
  7. Beach fossil

    Hi, everyone! I am new here and know almost nothing about fossils. I found this rock on the coast of the Baltic Sea in Latvia and was wondering if someone could tell me anything about it. I have previously found stones with marks or even fossilized snails, but this one seems really interesting (if it is a fossil at all).
  8. Sorry about the title but that is best how to describe it. It was found near Mablethorpe, east coast of UK. Looking at the picture does any know what it is?
  9. Hi everyone, I found some interesting fossils/stones today, its around 8 cm each in length. Can anyone identify them? Thanks a lot!
  10. Fossil ID please

    Hi everyone, I found an interesting piece of stone today at a road construction site. May I ask if someone can tell me more about the possible species and age of this stone? Thank you very much!
  11. What could these be?

    Hello! I found these two (nearly) identical pieces in an area west of Albuquerque, New Mexico, that would have been the eastern shoreline of the Laramidia continent during the cretaceous. I checked on a geologic map, and the exposed area is all cretaceous sediments. These samples are very hard, despite their seemingly brittle shape, and do not break or disintegrate even when I apply a lot of force to them. They have no other remarkable markings other than their very unusual shape. Do you have any ideas what they could be? Thank you!
  12. Stromatolite? Indian Tool?

    Is this a stromatolite? Or an indian tool?
  13. Hi, I found this large stone today in a local field in the West Midlands, what would the circular marks be caused by ?
  14. Is this fossil?

    Can anyone tell me if these two stones are fossils or not? Dimensions: 1- 20 mm ; 2.5 gr 2- 35 mm ; 5.6 gr. thickness : 1 mm Thanks
  15. Phil from Tulsa, Oklahoma here. I am needing help identifying the following in the photos (2 log sized objects...one is about 3 feet and the other about 2 feet..heavily pitted. The smaller one has a central core pattern (light but visible). Found on lakeshore in NE Oklahoma. In your opinion, rock, fossilized wood, or other. The pieces are very hard-I haven't done a hardness test but it felt like stone and was extremely heavy.
  16. Double trouble

    Somebody brought me a bag of interesting fossils which turned out to be mostly rocks Nothing really interesting there except this two items which I am not sure what they are. I don't have any information about it I only know it was found here in Czech republic. Any ideas what they are?
  17. Is this a fossil? From Guinea

    Dear friends, I've met a very nice man that has kept a stone very well hidden as he thinks that it could have some value. I don't understand what it is, but it came into my mind that it can be a fossil. Can you help to indentify it? Thank you very much. Best regards, David Duarte
  18. Is that a foot fossil ...

  24. odd stone or fossil?

    2 inches long and one inch wide the outside seems hard and thin ... the inside is a totally different material very fine hard to see any grains at all even under magnification check photos (silt?) not sure. found in gravel load from Brazos River west of Houston. the outside is? I am thinking concretion? .... some one told me possibly egg but I don't think so I don't get that feeling, outer coating seems wrong to me not like what I would think a shell would look. has any one see a concretion like this before?
  25. Fossilized shell ?

    Hi again today, here is something what really is not concretion. lol. Its from somewhere the southern coast of Europe beach, dont know exectly. The second object has a surface similar to that of the raw agate crust, I try it to catch it on photos... So what you can think about it ?
