  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. 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
  4. Is that a foot fossil ...

    Dear all! I am not a fossil hunter but I found a stone in a little creek. They look like a foot.....and feel also. Could you tell me if it was special or only a boring stone. Many thanks in advance!! hamsterpfote

  9. Is this a fossil?

    Found on a Southern England beach on our Honeymoon, just wondered what it was?
  10. 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?
  11. 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 ?
  12. was out looking today found several ... I found this reddish stone and decided to look at it closer are those seeds in it?...or something else?....and it looks like it has veins in it.... is it petrified wood or some type of coprolite? Tue Sep 18 15-16-55 shows the blood veins looking markings best...they run all through the stone. I am rather new to all this and I must say it is like a scavenger hunt!
  13. What is this?

    I am a super novice and don’t know scientific names of these things. This one was ound in creek in western Pennsylvania. Lots of fossil stones around covered with black film... oil deposit nearby? Most impressions in black stones are of shells and some plantlike things. This one is more like granite and the thing on top looks sort of like a giant guppy (to me). What do you think?
  14. Not a fossil.. what is it?

    Hi all, Would anyone be so kind to enlighten me as to what this is? I'm pretty sure I've ruled out any kind of coral. The outside appears to be calcite but I just can't work out the sponge-like looking formation inside. The location was Tor Bay, on a bay just north of Saltern Cove in-between Goodrington and Broadsands Beach. Mudstone and Limestone - Devonian. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  15. Fossil coral or something else?

    Not sure what this is, but my first thought was fossil coral. Can anyone help? I don't remember where I found it.
  16. France coast beed?

    Found this on a beach near Sete, France
  17. Teeth

    Another one i ground hunting native American artifacts. Thanks for helping railguy
  18. Hello, I found this egg shaped stone in Jordan north desert, north east from the capital Amman and not far from Syrian border. Of course it would be amazing if it was actually an egg, but I have my doubts...anyway, it is about 7 cm long, quite heavy for its size. Thank you!! Chiara
  19. Identification assistance

    Total amature here. Found this unusual stone in a local field in The Scottish central belt area near a river. It is a heavy stone with weird curves on either side and a sort of glaze on these side surfaces. Seems a bit weird and unlike any stones I have seen in the area. It is reasonably symmetrical but not 100% - but wondering if some of that could be down to erosion . The outer side has a few unusual small pits. Interested to hear any opinions. Fully prepared to just go back to my day job. :-)
  20. What is it?

    Fossil? found in South Dublin, Ireland near the Whitechurch Stream, any idea what it is, a tooth or perhaps a carved tool of some kind?
  21. I was just wondering if anyone could help me out with identification of these objects found inside a hard sandstone matrix, I was given this stuff years ago from an old friend and had never looked at it properly at all,(I cut gemstones for a living and so the rough, stony stuff never got much attention,), . I was cleaning up and decided to wash the dirty stuff(like 20 years of dirt plus some decomposed something, probably rat). Once clean, I could see things embedded in the stone, So ... being curious me,..I slowly got one out. What is this?? Is it a bone or a bit of wood or something?.. how do you tell ? it’s around 5cm long, 13mm wide and 6-7mm thickness , picture is of one in the sandstone and one out... any help on ID would be great thank you for looking
  22. Tooth or just a stone?

    So I found this on the beach, and I'm not sure if it's just a stone, or a tooth of some kind.
  23. stone encased in a rock?

    My dad found this a long time ago somewhere in the Uk , he doesnt remember where, and cause you guys are awesome at this could someone identify it please
  24. BIO-logic or GEO-logic?

    Found this on a desert walk southwest of Tucson, Az. Cool find.....is it possibly some kind of fossil, perhaps a fossilized structure similar to septarian formations, or just a cool looking little rock? Thanks for any and all help.
  25. Not sure what to make of this?

    Any ideas on this? Found in a stream bed in the Glen Rose area of texas on a friend's property. The seemingly right angle and cracked appearance of the rock caught my eye. We found lots of Graphaea a few bivalves and gastropods in the area and none of the obvious rocks in the area had any cracks or looked like this thing at all. I'm not sure what to make or it.
