  1. Could it be fossil wood?

    Hello, please, colud it be Fossil Wood? Thanks
  2. Help...is this even a fossil?

    Any info on what this might be, or ideas for further research. Acquired from person in Texas who had no information on where it was found. The reddish brown area and paler surround are a totally different material than the main part, and the 2 smaller protrusions look similar to bone matrix, if that''s the correct term. Thanks for any input. PS: After adding 2 pics, I deleted them, but when trying to upload new picture, pop up says I am only allowed 3.9m, and will not let me add another pic. (I may not be smart enough to use this forum...)
  3. Dear all, I have many duplicates in my collection and I would like to exchange them with other fossils from around the world. I'm interested in any kind of fossils, (dinosaur) teeth in particular. #1 This should be a piece of echinoid. A gift from a friend, it may have been found in Italy. #2 Fossil wood slice (probably from USA). #3 and #4 Pectinids from Favignana, Sicilia, Italy. #5 Unknown piece of marine fossil from Sorrento (Amalfi Coast), Italy.
  4. What is this?

    Honestly, I do not know anything about fossils. I just want to know, what is this thing that my grandfather gave me years ago? Is it some kind of bone? Wood? It's about 12 cm long, heavy, and stone like.
  5. Petrified log

  6. Eocene Fossilized wood?

    Hello everyone, I went to a fossil hunting trip in Alicante, Spain and I found this weird shaped rock. I dont know if it could be fossilized wood or just a funny shaped rock. It's from the eocene and the place around it was full of nummulites. You could also find some echinoids and gastropods but more rarely. Thanks for your help!
  7. Wood Fossil?

    So I found this stone at Lake Memphremagog on the Vermont side and it looks like wood and feels like wood on one half but on the other side it looks like fossilized wood and the stone/fossil itself is heavy like stone and cold to the touch like stone so it is definitely not entirely wood. I’m wondering if it is just partially fossilized or something but I’m also curious if 1. It actually is a wood fossil and 2. If there’s any chance anyone can tell how old it is by the looks of it. Thank you in advance even if it turns out to be just a very cool looking stone. I’m happy to provide any additional information of needed!
  8. So I have a piece of fossilised/petrified wood from the North Caucasus region of Russia, but I'm trying to identify what species it genus it is from. I've done a bit of looking, but I can't seem to find many references to any floral species that this could come from. My reading so far leads me to suspect that it's Pinus / Pine wood that has been fossilised given the region, but does anyone have any more sources on potential tree types that it could be?
  9. These were all found in northwest Oklahoma, near the Kansas state line.
  10. I found this in Ellsworth county kansas. I am very curious what it is and how it came to be. It looks to be wood with a layer of fossils.
  11. wood?

    I thought it to be a wood, but was told it's rather a sponge or coral. What do you think? Can you identify the form-genus of the plant if it is one? I found this flint specimen in a parking lot gravel in southern Poland, therefore I'm not sure of the age. There are some other flints there, with possibly a late Late Cretaceous - early Early Paleogene fauna, while nearby outcroups are of late Middle to early Late Jurassic with flints, early Late Cretaceous with cherts and Miocene without silifications. Fossil wood in Poland preserved as a flint, found on secondary deposits, is often of Miocene age.
  12. Petrified wood

    Found one while hunting native American artifacts , the other digging a post hole. Thanks for helping railguy
  13. After attending my first MGS meeting, which was great, I had the chance to go on a quick hunt at a site that I had found on google earth. I thought it would be promising to hunt for Dinosaur footprints there, It should be Cretaceous according to the geologic map. Thankfully, the map was right and I got to hunt an exposure of what appears to be the Arundel Clay formation. Just about the same as dinosaur park in Laurel, MD except it was more of a clay and conglomerate mix than shale and ironstone. I didn’t find any prints that I’m confident about. One psuedoprint I think (looks like one bit is a lie) and my dad found one that might be a worn one nodosaur track. I am confident I found many piece of fossil wood. I’m thinking I may have found the same site that @EMP has been hunting (I’ll likely have a PM convo with you EMP). I’m gonna continue looking for a better print site but a wood site ain’t bad when Cretaceous sites are as hard to find as they are in Maryland. I have been looking through all records I have of Ray Stanford’s site and am narrowing it down to a few sites. Perhaps someday I’ll run into Mr. Stanford himself while hunting Sadly enough I cannot reveal the site to anyone, I am quite afraid of what might happen to it if word got out. I don’t want to take chances. I will say it’s in Maryland. I would consider trading some lignite if someone would like it but I’ll keep that for a trading thread. Here are some pictures: Tree limb in a bank, sort for bad pictures but I was sinking in Cretaceous clay (don’t want to become a fossil myself)
  14. Is this petrified wood?

    Hi everyone! I found this rock that looks like petrified wood, at first I thought it was a piece of tree branch but when I picked it up I noticed it wasn’t, anyone know if this looks like it could be petrified wood? thanks:)
  15. Fossil wood

    From the album Other Locations

  16. 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
  17. Curious what this is

  18. Petrified wood?

    Hi newbie here. Hoping someone can help me confirm if this rock I found on our property in central PA is petrified wood. Very dense material, and it looks like a chunk of decomposing hemlock. Thanks!
  19. Bone or wood?

    Just got back from a lovely sandsend fossil trip. i found afew boney/woody pieces on the beach. I wonder if anyone can tell the difference because i have trouble. This is probably the most interesting.
  20. Fossilized wood?

    There are two samples here that may be petrified wood. The first one I have several pictures of and I am not sure about. The second one I only have one or two photos but I am fairly confident, just need validation.
  21. Best of my flora collection

Arizona 4+5 My favourite of all from Central Oregon with woodworm holes. 6.Madagascar 7.This is called Peanut wood because of the pattern . Carnarvon. Australia
  22. Fluorescent Arizona Fossil Wood

    Hey all. Decided to check out some of the Arizona fossil wood I got from the DoBell Ranch under a microscope. Got board and put my UV light to use. I shined it in the 5 gallon buckets and on the large pieces. I was surprised to see some pieces glowing a bright green, and continue to glow after a short time using shortwave UV. After some inspection under the scope, the fluorescence seems to be coming from a clear or white botryoidal mineral that looks very similar to the white, fine grained matrix. In fact, I didn't notice a difference between it and the matrix at 30x until after I shined the UV on it. BTW - I forgot to put on a glove with UV light - wont do that again! Anyone know what is making it fluoresce?
  23. Unusual concretion.

    I know this is a concretion, but I think it is so cool looking. It has weathered so differently than almost any other concretion I have ever seen. Most layers of this type of material come off in a lot thicker layers. It is possible that is just how it weathered, but I am wondering if there is more to it than that. The layers are so thin and fine. I found yesterday while out hunting in a new favorite spot in the Britton Formation of the Eagle Ford group in Collin county Texas with Joe AKA @Fruitbat. The area I found it in is full of concretions. Many of them have fossils inside of them, but they’re a dark, brick red. The fossils are generally cepholopods, both ammonite and baculite, Inoceramus clams, other pelecypods and gastropods. This concretion is from a layer above the brick red concretion layer I think. I have concretions from all over. Some are cool colors and shapes and some have fossils inside, like my Mazon fossils and also Carboniferous ones I collected in Oklahoma. Also those that I’ve collected in the North Sulfur River and Britton Formation, but this one is unique it it’s own class. Any thoughts on it would be appreciated. It seems like concretions come up so often we ought to have a concretion section on TFF. Of course most of them come up in the fossil ID section. Anyone know the term for this type of concretion? I assume it formed by repeated thin layers being added on slowly over time, which now are eroding away. Thing is I didn’t find any others like it. I’ve been to the area 3 times in the last week. Why would just one concretion be like that? Side 1 Side 2 One of the long edges. The other is flat and solid looking rock, kind of like the bottom end of this one. End 1 different angle that looks a lot like wood, but must be just cool layering and weathering effects. End 2 the typical layered concretion look.
  24. Hey all. I'm looking for some fossil wood that is a dark blue. Something similar to the color of lapis. Most of the blue forest wood I've looked at is more black than blue. Does anyone have any suggestions?
  25. Wood from Washington

    As I've said before, I am a rockhound of many years. I see recent posts on wood so figured I'd show a few of my personal finds. All are from my home state of Washington.
