What is this?

Hello,

 

Could just be a rock...but it sure has some interesting features.

Yes, it is a rock with some suggestive features, but no fossils I can see.

You may benefit from looking at this thread."Pseudofossils, Pareidolia, And Other Rorschachery"  .

I wasn't sure if this was a rock or a cast. I just found something in the first two photos. It looks like a mineralized blood vessel. Can anyone confirm that?

To me it just looks like some mineralisation.I do not understand what you are trying to ID in these pictures...

Never saw a mineralised blood vessel though.

Lets see what the others say.

gregmolrocks...

 

Sorry...but once again, I'm not seeing anything fossiliferous in your specimen.  Where in Georgia (general location) are these samples coming from?

What about these pictures? What is being mineralized?

+1 for some form of mineralization. I'm not sure blood vessels, as being soft tissue, would be likely to preserve - and certainly not without the context of other parts, of which I'm also not seeing any evidence of in this rock. :headscratch:

Dead center of top photo. Could easily be an echinoid spine.

Looks like a quartz pebble, to me. :unsure: :headscratch:

 

Why do you keep posting the same images? 

What about these rocks look like a fossil to you?

Where in Georgia are you finding these?

We keep asking questions, but you don't answer, and keep posting the same rock. :ank:

It is very apparent to me and others that these stones you are finding are not fossiliferous.

(I am supposing that this reply goes better than my first)

Don't give up on getting out there and finding something that can be identified.

Gregmolrocks,it would help if you try to describe what you find interesting in your finds.

Also,for anyone here to say something meaningful about any piece of rock,there has to be an inkling of an idea about regional geology/(provenance) and stratigraphy.

There are a zillion ways in which  a rock fragment can be "interesting"

When biological remains are replaced by minerals (like quartz or calcite) it is called mineralization and the resulting piece is referred to as being mineralized.
