    Interesting mineral that may be a fossil

    A few days ago I found this rock in northern Israel. At first I saw the part you see in the first picture but then I saw an interesting mineral in it, so I used the advanced tool of another rock to open a part of the rock and I found that the black mineral in it has an interesting shape. So i would love to hear any idea about this rock, are there fossils in there? What kind of rock is it?

    Is this a fossil?

    Hi everyone, I'm new to the group. I'm wondering if the enclosed pictures are of a fossil. Found it on my land a while ago but have now only realised that it could be a fossil. Thank you,

    Wisconsin Fossil

    A while back I found this fossil in Wisconsin, unfortunately I don't remember where exactly I was when I found it. So far I have been unable to easily identify it. It is about 2 inches across, and about an inch tall. I can post more pictures if needed.
  4. I found this very complete snail/mollusk looking fossil, it’s the first time I’ve seen the shell and body shape of a snail type organism preserved equally well in a fossil I’ve found- can anyone help tell me what organism it is specifically and from what time period? I found it in Southampton, Ontario in my rock garden, so I don’t know whether the rocks from the rock garden are from a quarry or the shores of Lake Huron (I would guess they’re from Lake Huron, but I don’t know). Thanks for your help, I’ve been holding onto this for years and always been curious as to what it is!
  5. Hey Folks, My 5 year old son found this close to home. It’s about the size of a small fingernail, and appears to be only a half shape, if that makes any sense? The object does not appear to continue beneath the matrix. Any idea what it might be? Thanks, E&B

    Fossil or just a pretty stone?

    Hi, New to the forum, obviously... so I hope I'm doing this correctly! I found this while walking along Brighton Beach yesterday and was wondering if its a fossil or just a nicley marked stone. I have no knowledge of these things so was hoping someone could help my curiosity! Thank you!

    Guadalupe Mountains National Park

    I found this a few years back near (but not in) Guadalupe Mts National Park. Is it a sponge, coral, algae, or something else? Piece is about 6 inches across. Thank you for your help.

    Shark tooth from Austin Tx

    Hey everyone! First post here. Found this in Austin TX on the bank of Walnut Creek. Thanks for the help!
  9. Hi everyone, found this in a new jersey cretaceous creek. Looks like a partial enamel something but I'm not exactly sure what it can possibly be from, it interestingly has some very defined ridges on the least worn side. Very hard to catch the clearest pics to show the sharpest definition but I tried to get the best I could. Maybe this can be a clue to a potential id. Pictures of it with whiteish background are upside down.

    Gastropod or something else?

    Freshly found. Found in/very close to Needmore Formation near Petersburg WV. More sandstone than shale, but shale was just above. Lots of brachiopods nearby. Would love someone to tell me it's a rare ammonite or similar. Thoughts? ID help? Thank you.

    Petrified Wood - Carbonized?

    Hey Folks, We found this hunk this afternoon. Any idea why the piece of wood here in black is carbonized? It comes off when you rub it. Other pieces we found today are definitely fossilized, but this one is different. Any ideas? E & B
  12. This small fossil is from Chengjiang and was labelled as "Anomalocaris mouth" by seller. He's been wrong before and I'm rather skeptical about that interpretation. Any ideas, anyone?

    Fossil Tooth (some sort of shark?)

    Not too long ago I got some sort of tooth from a seller at a show. She inherited it from a family member (her mother, if memory serves) and believed it to be a megalodon tooth, but she doesn't specialize in fossils in the slightest, and it doesn't 100% look like the megalodon teeth I've seen before, plus I don't think she did extensive research because if it is indeed a megalodon tooth then I think I bought it for quite the steal. I've bought from her before, and I trust that she's not being maliciously dishonest, but I definitely want a more expert opinion. I'm certainly new to this realm and
  14. I just started learning about fossils and fossil hunting. Both of these were found in Big Brook. I think the larger one might be a deer bone? I'm not sure if the smaller one is even a fossil. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Calymene trilobite ID

    These are more trilobite segments, and one cephalon, from the Leighton Formation, Maine, silurian. I believe them to be the new species of Calymene trilobite that I found earlier, but am unsure. The first pictures are of the first specimen, numbers 1 and 2 being of the cephalon, and the third of a thorax segment that was underneath the cephalon (you can see the edges of it in picture 2): The next pictures are of new specimens. Number one and two are of a cephalon. Unfortunately, I was unaware of its existence until after it came out in multiple piece

    Judith River Ceratopsian Horn?

    I have this chunk of bone from the Judith River formation of Hill County, Montana, and I was wondering if this is a partial horn? It was found with some other small skull fragments, but this is the main piece. Does anybody more familiar with ceratopsian horns have any insight? It is 5.3 inches in length (I forgot a ruler picture, my apologies). Thanks in advance!
  17. I recently purchased this vertebrae which was sold as a mosasaur (Clidastes) vertebrae. I wasn't convinced that the vert was Mosasaur (or even marine reptile for that matter) in origin when I bought it, I simply bought it because I thought it was a nice looking vertebrae. But now I thought I might give it a shot to try and get an ID on this thing. It was found in the Gober Chalk, Austin Group, Gober, Fannin County, Texas, USA and dates back to the Campanian, Cretaceous (± 80 mya). I don't really know what the vertebrae could be honestly, I don't believe it to be Mosasaur in origin o
  18. Hi Everyone! I'm new to the site. I have been fossil hunting for just over a year. I would love if you could help Identify these 3 pieces. I labeled them with numbers and letters to help keep track of them. Thanks in advance for your insight.

    Florida Gastropod Identification Help

    Hello everyone, I found this gastropod along the Sanibel Causeway in Ft. Myers, FL. They were in a pile of shells being used for landscaping so I presume that the sediments came from a nearby quarry of ?Pleistocene age, possibly the Caloosahatchee Fm. Can someone help me verify and identify this fossil? Family Turridae? Thank you!
  20. Hello TFF, I purchased this relatively inexpensive specimen at Mineralfest this past fall, and I was wondering if anyone could tell me more about it. The seller informed me it could possibly be from Madagascar, but was transparent in admitting that she couldn't confirm for sure. It was with other pieces of petrified wood that were brown, but I was drawn to this one due to the red hues. I think it's agatized, and it looks "glassy," although there are too many impurities to shine a cell phone light through it. One side is polished, and I put water on the rougher backside to show mor

    Orthocone nautiloid

    Fossil forum, This is another fossil from the Leighton formation. It is a completely undamaged orthocone nautiloid. I think it is the same species that I showed earlier in the possible fossil coral post, but I am not sure. The external mold has the same grooves, but the internal mold is divided into two sides, each with bumps. Is this normal for a nautiloid fossil? Any help would be appreciated. Here are some pictures of it (internal mold on the left, external mold on the right):

    Possible lumbar vertebrae fossil

    I discovered this piece of vertebrae on Sandy Hook beach in NJ after a storm. I'm not sure if it actually a fossil or just appears that way from being in the ocean. I believe it to be a lumbar vertebrae but have no idea what from. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Brachiopod id

    Fossil forum, These are specimens from the Leighton Fm. They are all located on the same block. I believe that the specimens I have taken pictures of are of the same species, but don't know what species. All the available literature I have looked at has not identified the genus. Any help with the genus, and maybe even the species, would be greatly appreciated. Here are some pictures of them (internal molds on the left, external on the right):

    Mazon Creek fossil IDs

    Hi guys. I'm looking for some more help identifying these Mazon Creek (Illinois) fossils. I think one is some sort of calamites? Thanks for your time.
