  1. Hello everybody i am thinking about building drawers to house my fossils in. could I use pine plywood coated with polyurethane for the drawers or should i do something else.I do not want to have any problems with off gassing or anything else that will damage the fossils.If i do use pine plywood should i coat it in polyurethane.any help will be greatly appreciated.
  2. Is this Petrified Wood limb?

    I was wonderimg if this is petrified wood. I believe it is, but nit sure what it is replaced with. Any help would be appreciated.
  3. L.S., Recently I was involved in a study on the growth of native copper porphyroblasts in a sample of mine prop wood from a Bronze Age copper mine on Cyprus. While the paper approaches the subject from a mineralogical/structural geological rather than a paleontological point of view, it might still be of interest to some of you. For a limited period of time, the paper can be downloaded freely via the following link: https://authors.elsevier.com/c/1a0ShhdGqSQ49 The work describes how the formation of copper porphyroblasts in the mine prop wood has locally deformed the tracheid microstructure. This is significant, because the deformation suggests that the native copper formation involved so-called 'displacive growth'. Simply put, the copper crystals must have exerted mechanical force on their environment in order to make room for themselves to grow. This phenomenon is known as the 'force of crystallization' and can be observed under specific laboratory conditions (see e.g. Wolterbeek et al. 2018), but it is generally very difficult to unequivocally prove displacive growth and force of crystallization-driven processes played a role in natural samples. Kind regards, Tim
  4. Why I Love Blacklight!

    Whenever I bring home a new batch of fossils, I pull out my UV rock lamp. Why? Some fossils glow in the dark, but not in a uniform way. Variations in the mineral composition make for a variety of colors, even when the specimen seems fairly uniform in color in daylight. This can make small, hidden details really stand out. Case in point: This afternoon I was putting away some petrified wood I'd collected awhile back. I pulled out my black light to examine them because some of the wood from this site shows a rainbow of color under UV. This one particular piece was mostly orange under UV, though in camera the hues look different. What really got my attention, however, were a few really vibrant spots on one side. Insect traces! The petrified wood chip is only about 8 cm long. Even with a magnifier, some of the small details are hard to spot. I never would have spotted them in daylight, but they were super bright with the UV. Another box I was sorting through this week contained impressions of brachiopods and trilobites in plain, white limestone. It can be hard to see the contours in the matrix, but they show up much differently under the UV. Finally, UV light can be used to identify fossil mollusks whose patterns have bleached away. About 60% of fossil shells fluoresce and some species have been described based on the residual patterns made visible under ultraviolet light. Note: To photograph these, I used a Convoy UV LED flashlight. I set my camera on a tripod for a 4 second exposure at f/22, with ISO set to 1600. I had my DSLR's white balance set for daylight.
  5. Abbey wood microfossils

    Hi guys I found all this stuff searching through abbey wood micro matrix I collected last Wednesday and I was wondering if you could help me ID any of it thanks in advance location:Lesnes abbey wood, london age:paleogene formation: blackheath member, Thanet formation 1. Some type of fish jaw? 2.reptile or fish vert? 3.coral? 4.fish bone? 5.fish vert? 6.coprolite? 7.fishvert?
  6. Hi everyone, just joined the group. I recently did a kayak trip down the Brazos River Below Possum Kingdom Lake and found some petrified wood. I was wondering if anyone knew of what geologic age and formation it might be from? The surrounding geology seems to be Paleozoic but there is also Pleistocene terraces. Is it possible the wood could have been mineralized in a Pleistocene terrace or is this more likely from a surrounding Paleozoic formation? Thanks in advance for the help.
  7. Fluorescent Silicified Cypress Wood

    From the album Fluorescent Petrified Wood

    One of Delaware's many mysteries is the petrified wood found near Odessa and Smyrna. The general consensus is that is cypress wood of some kind and it was buried under Pleistocene sediments. However, the origin of the wood and the age have yet to be figured out. Some say Miocene. Others say as old as Cretaceous. There are no other co-occurring fossils in the deposit to give any clues. The photo on the right was taken using a 395 nm UV lamp.

  19. I found this fossil along with others, looking for id! Id love to learn more about it
  20. Wood? Bone? Fossil walkie talkie?

    Hello there all! I picked this oddity up last weekend. Since then I've been staring at it and... well... I can't make head nor tails of it. Seems to be soooomething? Found on the Yorkshire coast, along ice age clay cliffs
  21. Hi again. So yesterday I found this at walton on the naze. Looks like some fossil shells and fossil wood inside? Would like some thoughts on if I should prep this or is it a waste of time? It caught my eye as quite a big piece and I can see some different shell,s or something through the surface. I'm not sure if they are recent shells or fossilised?I'm assuming fossils as where it was collected with all other fossil material around it.
  22. Are these wood fossils?

    Hi all, I am at Malaysia right now, at a fossil-bearing site. Are these wood fossils? - Andy
  23. Whitby find; wood?

    Found this piece on a beach near Whitby known for Jurassic marine fossils. Is it anything of interest; wood perhaps, or just inorganic? Thanks
  24. Hi everyone. I found these which I think are coprolites and some pyritised wood. Possibly a bird bone as well as one piece is hollow. Thanks for the help!
  25. Burnt Cretaceous wood

    Hello everyone again. About a month ago, while I was fossil hunting in local Dallas creek, I came across what looked like a prehistoric burnt wood that has been exposed by creek water. When I looked at it, other half of the wood was missing and washed away. Other half was embedded into a rock as you can see on the picture, part of the wood was petrified and other half was in carbonized form. It smelt like sulfur / burnt wood. I dug it out and kept the wood in my collection, but some still remains in the limestone. It was very strange that single burnt fossilized log was embedded in the limestone layer and petrified like that. Has anybody seen something like this?
