Recommended Posts

I have trouble trying to tell what rocks these. Not a fossil identification, I still do need help. I want to know if i can find fossils in the area.

Can you take some closer shots? This is pretty far away to really see what we need to for ID.

These photos still aren't close enough to tell what they are. :( 

From what I can make out, I'm not seeing any fossils. 


Telling what type of rock you have is extremely difficult via photograph.  :unsure: 
Usually, you need to do streak tests, hardness tests, and or specific gravity tests to figure out what you have. 

Feel free to post more photos in replies in this topic. :) 

We'll do our best, but can't make any promises.

Maybe.  :shrug:

 

This information from HERE is very, very, very old, ... and probably no longer accurate

It is a good place to start your research from, however. ;)
