Is It a Fossil

Recommended Posts

I'm almost afraid to show you this one. But, this is the one that started me on my journey into the unknown world of fossils. I found this piece on the land I live on. It was at the bottom of a small hill below me. I'm not good with measurements of land. I'm guessing if I dug straight down from my house may be 10 or 15 feet. I picked it up on the ground which dogs have been running chains over so it may be abit further down. I picked up several different pieces there. Which I will show in another post. Thank you for any help you can give. I forgot to name the area. It's Wilson County not far from Nixon Texas.

Sounds interesting, but unfortunately no photo is attached to your post.

The photos are a little grainy, but this looks like an ironstone concretion, not a fossil, to me.  These concretions have a habit of mimicking fossils and confuse even lots of experienced collectors.

Indeed. 

Nice ironstone concretion that sparked your interest. 

It absolutely deserves to be kept and used as a paperweight. :)

The first photo reminded me of a neck of a bottle. Than I was thinking maybe, ornamentation on red clay native Indian pottery. You might have a shard but sharper images would have to be supplied.
