  1. Questions about Petrified Wood

    I found all these pieces in arapahoe county Colorado. I’m not sure where I found #2 just in Colorado. I polished a couple of them, 10-16. Is it possible to determine type of wood or approximate age?
  2. Pennsylvanian Naco Fm. “Wood”

    I have found some Pennsylvanian silicified “wood” from the lower part of the (~207 mya) Naco Formation in Arizona. This is the first recorded instance of likely plant material from the Naco. The formation is all marine in the section that I found it in and has lots of crinoids and brachiopods. One piece has some slight plant like internal texture with isolated circles and curved hash. Photo of side view of 90 mm wide piece with calcite rhomb molds. Most of the wood from that time had distinctive exteriors such as Calamities, Lepidodendron and Sigillaria. Any idea of what my pieces of wood might be? Could they be internal pieces of above mentioned varieties without the distinctive texture? Could it be a tree fern such as Psaronius? @paleoflor Attached picture of single piece on a blue zippered notebook is about 185 mm long.
  3. Dorset find

    Found this yesterday on the foreshore at Redcliff Point, Dorset. It’s mineralised; feels like rock and sounds like rock when tapped against another. Could it be a piece of fossilised wood, or even rib bone, or has some other process caused the appearance? Thanks for looking
  4. I dont remember exactly when in my life but at one point I saw my first petrified wood and thought that's amazing. Well many years have come and gone and have seen lots of shops selling wood at what seems over expensive and not interested prices for tiny pieces. But then finally while looking to buy an item from someone they randomly have this piece of petrified wood and now I have something that filled that history in my life. Now the better question is what to do with it? Raw to me looks amazing but the thought in the back of my head is what if I polish it? Not really sure what I want to do but thought I would ask you great people for some details and insight. To me the raw look is everything great and what I love about rocks but the polished side would be showy and fancy bringing out semi the best in looking form maybe for it. Hard to decide.
  5. Dorset Petrified Wood

    Found this sticking out of a mud slide near Golden Cap on the Dorset coast. Certainly looks like wood, it doesn’t feel as hard as stone but harder than wood, I suppose like coal. Is it definitely petrified and is anyone able to speculate on age, possible species etc? Thank you in advance
  6. I found a fossil but what?

    Hi I found this rock on a rock bar in a river. Looks like a fossil. It looks similar to petrified wood. Is that what it is?
  7. Shark Dorsal Spine? ( Missouri )

    Hello and good evening! I have passed this fossil a few times and it resides in a large limestone slab. I believe it could be a spine due to presence of Chondrichthyan teeth in the area and how it appears to come to a point. For reference the teeth I have found include teeth from Petalodontiformes, Eugenodontida, and other Chondrichthyans. I will note I have found some petrified wood in the area, but none in a limestone matrix so it could be a Calamite. Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Muncie creek shale member
  8. Got wood?

    Hello watching the trees dancing in the near hurricane winds and of course am daydreaming about sharking (as my wife calls it) i occasionally pick up a piece and hopeful but unsure if it’s a fossil, bring it home only to see when it dries out that it’s just a piece of wood. Ive kept a couple and the 3rd photo I still think may be a piece of modern poop. Anyone else keeping wood?
  9. Could this be petrified wood?

    I have had this rock with my mineral collection for a while and have always wondered if it could be wood. It has a gold sheen to it, especially when wet. I can't remember where I found it.
  10. Fossil bone or petrified wood?

    Hello, complete newbie here posting though I have been lurking for some time. I found the pictured today in the San Jacinto riverbed north of Houston. This river is known to have a great deal of petrified wood everywhere, and I've found a lot of it in many odd forms. Other than a baby mammoth tooth I was fortunate enough to find while camping years ago, I have not yet found any fossilized bone. I was wondering if this is bone(feels as weighty as a mineral would) or petrified wood. If bone, I assume it is too deteriorated to tell possible species, I would more be interesrted in knowing that it is, since I am completely knew to this. Since it was so deteriorated, I fractured one tip to see inside. The dark circular area seems to run inside of it and is also visible along one side in a kind of channel. Sorry the pictures aren't great, I will get better!:) Thanks in advance for any opinion you could give on it. regards, Brian
  11. Non-Mineralized Fossil Wood

    I don´t know if this is the proper section and if it has been posted already elsewhere on TFF. Just found a nice article about non-mineralized fossil wood from 2018. It includes many nice pictures and covers mummified, carbonized and coalified wood. Mostly localities from North America are covered, but also some European ones.

  12. ID: another wood materials?

    Hi! This was found in a creek in Tompkins county, NY, USA (Devonian period). The shale rock contained these rusty/blackish marks. Is it just rock composition or fossils? Wood? Why is it that fish bones are a rarity in Devonian rocks of Central NY? thanks!
  13. Pennsylvanian wood?

    Found something I haven't seen before while hunting in Pennsylvanian limestone a couple weeks ago. I feel like this is poorly preserved plant material but there are not many discernible features, even under magnification. Any thoughts?
  14. ID. Wood film?

    Hi! Found this rock on my today’s walk. It is similar to the one I found before and that one was IDed as carbonized wood film. Is this one also wood? Can anything else be learned from this piece? Thanks! Found near a creek, in Tompkins county, NY, USA. Devonian period. The black piece is about 5cm in length.
  15. Potomac - Fossil Wood? (Solved: Turtle)

    Hey guys- I was kayaking yesterday near Blue Banks and stopped for a rest and, of course, to see if there was anything interesting lying around. I picked up this piece of what I thought could be fossilized wood, but I'm not sure. It is definitely mineralized, has some very faint slightly radiating lines on the "top" and has a clear pore structure in cross section. Any ideas?
  16. Help ID of Petrified plant/wood?

    This piece was found in the same stream bed that I have collected petrified wood from. The area in south of the Dinosaur Park in Laurel MD, the stream runs though College Park MD and is close to areas where foot prints of Cretaceous dinosaurs have been found.
  17. Hi everybody!! I am a new member, I first participated and discussed in the forum, my post if there are any shortcomings, please comment!!! I recently started learning and learning about fossil wood. In the last adventure, I found a very special piece and I really love it. They have the colors of years and glitter on the surface a lot ... give me your advice and thoughts on it !!! thanks
  18. I recently purchased this along with a number of other fossils. The only drawback was that there was absolutely no information to be had on them, but I jumped at it since it was such a good deal. Now I'm hoping that somebody out there may have an idea what type of wood this is and where it might come from.
  19. Pennsylvanian Drift Wood?

    Just read @Bonehunter's post and discussion with @Missourian about an unknown Pennsylvanian plant and it got me wondering the same about this specimen. It looks like wood to me, but I can't find any Upper Pennsylvanian wood that looks similar. I'd love your thoughts on what it might be? I found it near where I found a large tabulate coral specimen. It's from the Bethany falls limestone group. Would that make it drift-wood? What do you think the weird textured pattern on the outside surface is? @digit guess my creek is producing more stuff I can't identify Thanks,
  20. Fossil found in UK, Lyme Regis

    Hi, I found what i believe to be a fossilised piece of wood in rock on a beach in Lyme Regis UK about 20 years ago when i was kid. Can anyone shed some light on what it actually is age, correct name etc? Thanks https://photos.app.goo.gl/Prm9ryyr5RJzttRT9
  21. I have enjoyed my trips to NSR and Mineral Wells, but they are a long enough drive from Gun Barrel City that I'm wanting to find closer places to hunt, for days when I don't have all day, or just want to stay closer to home. There isn't much to be found here in Henderson County, but Ellis and Navarro counties, just to the west, are both known to have fossils. I spent some time looking at google satellite images, picked out some likely places to look at, and did some scouting yesterday. It had rained the day before, so while I looked at several possible places to hunt, the only place I actually did some hiking in was a small creek bed that I thought wouldn't have too much water to deal with. It's in the southern part of Ellis County, and it does, indeed, have some fossils. Here's a view of the creek bed, and what I brought home.
  22. Potentially Petrified Wood

    Hello all! I am a new member, and this is my first post. Could I please have some help figuring out if these rocks are petrified wood? Most of them were found in a small Pennsylvanian stream. It looks like they are quartz, crystal quartz, but I am no expert. There should be about two pictures of each rock. Thanks for your help, and I have more pictures of different rocks if needed.
  23. What type of petrified wood?

    Wood fossil found at the Trent River, near Comox BC, Canada. Trent River fossils date around 80 million years (so I’ve read), interested to see if anyone can identify exactly what type of tree/plant this came from. Have always thought it was bamboo, but I really don’t know what I’m talking about. Please let me know if you need more photos.
  24. Is it petrified wood? Concretion?

    Dear friends, let me submit a sample from the alluvial sands of Kyiv, Ukraine. Please help me decide: is it a concretion or a fossil, and if it is a fossil, what could it be? May be, it is carbonized wood? As I know, Cenozoic deposits are possible here in Kyiv. In the Paleogene, the territory of Kyiv was covered by the sea (here the bones of the Basilosaurus were found), since the Neogene - land. I applied vinegar, and my sample does not respond Thank you in advance for the tips!
  25. Amber vein in Pseudomorph after pet. wood?

    I inherited this specimen among others when my grandmother passed away. I believe it is agate chalcedony pseudomorph after wood because there is what appears to be a vein of Amber in and spilling down the exterior. I have all kinds of photos, but am having issues uploading most due to size.
