  1. Fossil ID help

    I found this stone outside my house and have never seen one like this before. Could it be a fossil of some kind? I live in oregon but this could have been brought from somewhere else by the previous owners if the house. Any help is much appreciated!
  2. What do preparers use to create a false matrix for fossil displays like this? Thanks!
  3. Found several of these while digging a hole for the swimming pool in our house. It was very surprising as I found hundred of them. Can anyone tell it is century old. I took a video of my discovery too.
  4. Is this a fossil or just two different rock types. One softer that has worn in the shape of a tooth? I found it in a river in Wicklow in Ireland. Any comments appreciated.
  5. Found this 'interesting' rock that had appeared to have fallen down a cliff that me and my partner had scaled down. Thought it looked pretty neat and resembled petrified wood. However, I am definitely no expert here. The rock was found on an English Coastline in a place called Valley of The rocks in Lynton. Millions of years ago there was once a river at the coastline which is supposedly how the valley was formed. I believe there are quartz crystals in the rock too. Is it just a rock? I'm sure you guys get plenty of posts like these lol. Thankyou
  6. I was encouraged to share this in the forum so here it goes. I was given a pile of "amber" and two pieces that may or may not (most likely not) have something inside. After the "amber" failed the saltwater float test it was proposed that I may have copal, NOT amber. I tried my best to take as clear of pictures as my camera phone would allow. The first piece supposedly it has a "bug or stick or something" inside. The copal, if it really is copal, does not appear very clear, even with a light source behind it. The second piece is a little more transparent when the light shines through with the exception of the mysterious dark object lurking on the middle. (queue the spooky music!) Personally I think that both of these may just be dirt that accumulated in a crack when the copal was forming a long ago but this has apparently been a topic of hot debate. So if ya'll got any opinions on the matter, I'd love to hear them...or if you don't want to share your opinions, just tell me that I've discovered some weird new sub-species of dinosaur and I'll be happy with that. lol
  7. good morning all a recent post of mine and then the response of 2 members concerned keeping (or not) of found modern bone. which got me wondering - WHAT DO YOU FOLKS COLLECT OR KEEP? (not exactly sure what the difference is). For me, collecting in Cretaceous Big Brook, fossil shark or other teeth are my main finds and hence my main collection. But i collect, or at least keep pretty much anything i find that i like so i also keep belemnite, fossil shells, modern bone, interesting stones and artifacts ranging from pottery shards to glass bottles (and even odd stuff like shell casings). (I even have a glass vase full of translucent rocks). What do you collect or keep?
  8. Some bone, tooth/jaw, and an IDK

    Some interesting finds from my weeks NJ brook trip. Some new and good finds to take macros of and share. I hope that you will find my little man IDK thingy at least entertaining. I might place him in the collection as a personal good luck charm to acknowledge before heading out on a future trip. I don’t know what he is or how he came to be- but he is sure interesting. Cheers!!!!
  9. Hi everyone this is matt again today in the creek I found a wide variety of fossils mostly brachiopods and crinoid stems here is a few photos
  10. Tooth? Bone? Or Stone?

    Can anyone shed any light on what this maybe please?
  11. Hi all - complete newbie here. Just wondering could anyone provide identification of this fossil creature. Source: a stone in a loose open dry wall typical of farms in the west of Ireland Location: Athenry area, County Galway, Ireland Notable feature: there is a one cm deep depression above the segmented component Many thanks in advance. https://postimg.cc/y3R0H6RW EDIT: Image posted here so it will remain long after the off-site link goes dead. -Ken
  12. Where it would seem like the jawline, has lines like the circular insect/worm, but towards the back the ridges patter turns into a round bumps pattern, and also turning the fossil around there is a hole that would look like where the spine would be. otherwise it is just a mashup is sea bugs and shells. Not sure where this was found, probably in the PA Delaware river.
  13. Stone Fossil ID

    Hello everyone, Does anyone know what it could be? ... is this Geologic or fossilized?, if it’s fossilized, what did it come from? And if so would it be a finger, or toe bone ? Found in the country of Mexico, specifically in the state of Guerrero, in a limestone mountain near some volcanic area or with tectonic plate activity, because there is quartz in the surroundings. I have never come across anything like this and around the discovery there are some pieces like these with some similar characteristics Thank you!!
  14. Fossils or not?

    Are these fossils or not?
  15. Fossil ?

    Found in a farm field in the western lower peninsula of Michigan. I was thinking stromatolite but I'm not so sure. Also, it looks like limestone but steel won't scratch it, and it doesn't react to acid. What do you think?
  16. Michigan fossil

    Found in a ditch near in the western lower peninsula of Michigan. I'm guessing stromatolite. What do you think?
  17. odd pebble

    at first glance this small stone looks to have an impression in it the thing is the stone is smooth to the touch I found this stone in the drive did not have a ruler with me or a coin so you may have to judge its size by my finger found in driveway gravel from Brazos river west of Houston Texas.

  24. Worm Fossil

    I have a couple of what appear to be worm fossils - can anyone shed any light on them? Found inside a slate/stone slab that I split. Northern UK about 3.5 inches long
  25. Manmade or natural carving in rock?

    I was just wondering what some of y'all might think of this rock? I found it in a creekbed at a location where I have found several artifacts and fossils but wasn't sure what to think about this rock and it is intriguing to me.
