  1. Help with ID

    The attached weighs 8.6 lbs I am not sure what it is and I am hoping for some guidance. I know you are an expert.
  2. 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?
  3. Going through a forgotten corner of the basement last night I stumbled upon a box with some of my grandfather's "rocks" that my grandmother gave me when she sold her house and moved in with my mom a few years ago. As far as we (my grandmother, mom, and myself) know these were all found in Maryland. He worked for the state dot for years as a bridge inspector so they could be from anywhere in the state. The lighter 2 pieces I am confident that they are petrified wood, the brown/red looking one I am not as sure. The brown/red piece's outside is almost like spaghetti noodles laying tight against each other for lack of a better description.
  4. I've been reading about the potential for lignite to spontaneously combust, which has gotten me thinking a bit. It's mentioned in the Wikipedia page for Lignite, as well as in paper such as this: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0010218002005539 I sometimes collect pieces of lignite from locations around the UK, if they preserve the shape and texture of the wood. Is there any risk of them suddenly bursting into flames? I'd have thought not, since I've never heard of such a thing happening, but then I suppose not many people collect these bits because they usually fall to pieces after a while (I treat them through soaking in a sugar solution to preserve them). Any thoughts?
  5. I finally completed the reorder of my collection of fossils and minerals. It is a wooden hexagonal display cabinet of several wood/glass shelf; in the pictures attached I only show some of them. I 3D printed more than 20 custom drawer compartments for the smallest specimens. I decided to go for a modular design, so I can adapt every compartment to the specimen. As printing material, I used a "wood PLA" filament 3D printed with 1 mm nozzle on the Alfawise U20 3D printer. I finally added a strip LED inside the cabinet door and powered it via a USB power-bank - so it is fully wireless. In this picture you can see some of my recent purchases: Two Sinosauridae indet. teeth from Kem Kem One Acheroraptor tooth from Hell Creek formation, Powder River Co., Montana Some Mosasaurus teeth from Kem Kem One Pterosaurs tooth from Kem Kem A piece of Rhinocerontidae indet. jaw from South Dakota Some ammonites, shark teeth, a Flexicalymene ouzregui, a couple of echinoids (I found the white one in a brick!); the Velociraptor skull is 3D printed as well. This is the other side. The big sand echinoid was also found by me in a brick! On the right there's a nice fossil coral: I never seen something similar, please let me know if you know it's name. Three fossil fishes and a nice ammonites cluster with some quartz in the background. At the end, some minerals... Now I only have to finish the cataloging of all specimen. I already finished with fossils, now I have to start with minerals - it will be very looong! What do you think? Do you like it? Ciao!
  6. I found these yesterday on a terrace near the Brazos. Any help with ID is very appreciated!
  7. Hi, found near Fernley, NV...many unusual shapes in area. Possible Petrified Wood/Opal...? Thank you so much.
  8. Crystallized wood fossil

    This is said to be a crystallized wood fossil from Liaoning, China. Do you think it is a wood fossil or simply a crystal ?
  9. Please help id and inform me

    Hello i went to the river today in central alberta and found these fossils i believe one is petrified wood but it also has a translucent mineral in it?? I think?? And orange mineral around it which i assume is sap amber??? the size of these rocks are around a baseball please help identify all of them and offer info ill greatly appreciate it first two pictures are of opposite sides same as the other two.
  10. Hello, I've got 13 fossils of which I'm not sure what they are. All fossils are bought, which is why I can't say much about the geological layer and location they're from. I used a ruler with inches and cm sizing. I don't really have to know the 100% exact specimen (please feel free to give the details though if you have them), I would like to have a general idea of what I'm looking at. 1. Sold to me as bamboo, not sure if it is: 2. Sold as a waterlily, its a cross-section: 3. same story as up. I don't know what it actually is: 4. looks like a lizard foot, but it's probably coral. 5. Some kind of crazy stain?? 6. This is obviously a tooth of a carnivore, I would like to know if its mammalian or from a dinosaur. For this one, I would love to know the specifics but shoot away with your ideas on it. 7. Looks like bone, mammalian? Is it even bone? 8. Another piece of supposed to be bone. 9. Bone/wood? who knows? 10. looks like its bone, but really don't know.. 11. Looks like something from the sea... 12. Could be a tooth of a herbivore, could also be anything else. 13. The last of the bunch, its sold to me as coprolite but it doesn't really look like it. I would love to know your ideas on this collection. I am an amateur collector and I can identify some fossils/stones but for these, I really need your help. Thanks in advance.
  11. Could it be fossil wood?

    Hello, please, colud it be Fossil Wood? Thanks
  12. 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...)
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Petrified log

  16. 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!
  17. 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!
  18. 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?
  19. These were all found in northwest Oklahoma, near the Kansas state line.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. Petrified wood

    Found one while hunting native American artifacts , the other digging a post hole. Thanks for helping railguy
  23. 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)
  24. 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:)
