  1. Hi everyone today again I found another plant fossil in the creek it use to be 2 feet long but I could not get it out in one piece because it seemed to fall apart when when I tried to remove it but I did get one piece out with good detail here are some photos
  2. Mystery Tree, Bark and Leaves!

    Hi, I found these in the Carbonado Formation Washington State. 42 - 47 million years ago. Eocene under a coal seam. I found this bark of some mysterious looking tree. Around the same rock were tons of leaves, all similar to one species (except one leaf which I will also include). I am hoping people can identify the family of tree for me. I also am posting some strange "cattail" / "horsetail" like stem / leaf because this could possibly be a branch from this tree. disclaimer: I am still trying to figure out my phone. The last photo is more clear, larger and detailed. The only difference was, I held my phone sideways. Maybe this is what I will do in the future. First I will post the bark
  3. Tree Bark from Eocene ID

    I needed help identifying this tree bark. Its about 38 million years old from the Renton Formation in Western Washington State. I can see insect burrow marks but they could also be the details in the tree itself. Its about 12 inches long and 5 ish inches wide
  4. Here’s the first fossils I’ve ever found! Found in Webster County, West Virginia. Where they hollow out a road. The stone is shale from my knowledge..... I’d love to know it’s age and name? And, how to prep them.
  5. Good evening to everyone, I am really very new to fossils and petrified items so I am at a loss as to what I may have and I need your help. My grandfather left me this piece when he passed away a few months ago and it was marked "Petrified Mushroom". I have included some photos for your review and if you have any questions please let me know. The mushroom, for lack of a better word, is about 22" long by 14" deep by about 3/8" in height. It weighs just about 74 grams and has a spot in the middle that looks like wood, it looks like it was cut or removed from a piece of wood maybe a tree. Any help anyone could provide would be extremely appreciated. If this is the wrong forum to ask about my item I deeply apologize, just let me know and I will remove the post right away. Thank you again and I hope everyone has a great week.
  6. This is an assortment of what I've been told by Devonian fossil experts are "mangal shoots" - tubular shoots growing in an ancient Devonian mud swamp, similar to mangrove shoots. I am told these are most likely shoots of the Wattiezza fern tree, which has been found in Devonian strata in New York. I discovered these in central New York at a construction site where I asked permission to collect some fossils a few years ago. I also collected several Devonian plant stems as well as several of these "mangal shoots". They were found vertically situated from 1 to 3 meters apart, in a layer of fossilized mud. Several stems or roots were also revealed in situ but too fragile to recover intact. The "mangal shoots" are tube shaped, rounded on the top, some have evidence of root structures (similar to swamp tree roots like Cypress, that spread out at the base) and there is a small circular tube structure running down the center. One photo shows the bottom where "root" appendages are shown. None are solid, all are broken into segments. Here are a couple of photos. Any insights and comments would be welcome.
  7. fossil limestone wood

    Nice day to all here ! Could anyone tell a tree? Location Czech Republic, limestone board. Because it has fallen in the limestone, the crust is quite cruel. It would probably break apart. Can you advise me to have a tip for conservation?
  8. 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.
  9. Fern or cycad fossil

    Is this a tree fern/cycad fossil? It measures 12cm in diameter and is round in shape. It is from Liaoning of China.
  10. This study recently came out, and added another piece of evidence for Australopithecus afarensis living most of its life in the trees (which doesn’t mean it couldn’t or didn’t walk upright when it needed to).
  11. Feedback appreciated

    Completely new to all of this so please forgive my lack of knowledge. This was dug up in my front pasture by the gas company expanding the lines. This is ap 3’ x 12” My property is on sandstone with a variety formations. Thank you in advance on any information and opinions.
  12. ID?

    Hey guys! As u know i posted once picture of this fossilized tree here, i only had one pic.Now i clear it up and took few photos.Can anyone tell me which species can this be or something else more? I found this in my friends garden btw.
  13. Fossilized tree stumps

    I have recently purchased 4 fossilized tree side tables (Which I learned later are for indoor use only) I would like to use as seats around a fire pit. What should I do to prepare them for outdoor use?
  14. A tree sprout???

    well i have the day off so i might as well throw another one at you all. I found this next to the largest petrified tree stump I have ever seen. It came from the north fork of the Shoshone river about seven miles from Yellowstone Park. I haven't seen anything quite like it. I think it looks like a sprout of some kind. Has anyone any seen something like this?
  15. Hi everyone. I recently visited a quarry at the north of Spain (more specifically a geographical area called "El Bierzo", famous for its fossils from the carboniferous era) and I found this one, which looks like tree bark with some particular marks. I have found several well preserved fossils at the same quarry but I will upload the pictures later. I have been looking for information about this one in particular but I haven't found out what type of tree it is, has anybody seen this before? Thank you very much!
  16. Hi, Dactylioceras I have had a while after prepping it, it is pyrite so was a bit stubborn, pretty big Dac though, the monkey puzzle stump is a recent find and is laced with jet, makes a nice stand for the Ammonite or whatever I decide to put on next, wanted to share, thanks, Alan.
  17. Fossilized bones

    I have these bones I found yesterday. Can anyone identify them? Any help is very much appreciated!
  18. Found on Cape Jack Beach Nova Scotia. I have 3 more like this. Stigmaria Root? I have one I know is an imprint.. but is this one a fossilized piece of root or an imprint? Would love any insight! Thanks in advance. I have more pictures but they are 3mb each.. Can I post more?
  19. First time finds

    I took my 5 year old son out today for our first time fossil hunting. We went to Warden point in Kent and had a good time despite the rain and wind! Amongst various bits of fossilised wood we picked this up. It's possibly another piece of wood but I'd appreciate and identification. Thanks. Great forum! Here's another angle And one more
  20. Petrified wood

    From the album WhodamanHD's Fossil collection.

    Petrified wood purchased in Pennsylvania. Location of origin, age, and species is all unknown.
  21. Tree Bark? Coal Mine Exposure

    Might be a case of pareidolia but these oddly shaped rocks resemble something... First to me looks like tree bark. (is it real?) Second i have no idea what it looks like (most likely just a weird way the rock broke) [Found in Kanawha County WV, Dunkard Group]
  22. Scale Tree

    Kathleen B. Pigg of the University of Arizona notes that this "stem subsurface pattern that is sometimes called 'rabbit tracks'. The double track you see is probably a result of a pair of air channels that accompany the leaf trace through the cortex. The vertical ribs are produced by an increase of bark through secondary tissue production." The pair of sepicemns in the first image are the positive and negative impressions of the same piece. The second image is a detail from the same specimen.
  23. Seed?

    From the album Carbondale, PA

    I found a whole plate of these, but somehow only the one example made it home. 13mm long Carbondale, PA Lewellyn Formation Pennsylvanian period 299-323 myo
