  1. Hi All we have had on the forum some quite out there post in the last few days so I thought I would add a post that is a little more grounded . I know very little about Scale Trees and some may think they are a little dull but to me they are quite striking. The Carboniferous was the heyday for early land plants. Giant lycopods, ferns, and horsetails formed the backbone of the land’s ecosystems. One of the most abundant plants during these times was the lycopsids known as the scale trees. Scale trees collectively make up the extinct genus Lepidodendron order Lepidodend

    Mystery object on petrified wood

    While y'all are on the subject, wanted to get some opinions on this. I collect a lot of petrified wood, wouldn't even have picked this up if weren't for the odd thing on it. Could it be bark? It's strange how rounded off it is, and there are tiny white dots in it's trail on the slice it's on. Appears to have a pattern on it, maybe someone will recognize it as a specific type of tree.
  3. 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

    Wood and Bark from Colombia

    Hi all, I found a number of wood fossils in a recent trip to Villa de Leyva, Colombia. I'm not sure of the period as there are a wide variety of geological bands in the area. I have the feeling the lined fossils are Calamites but would appreciate some help confirming and potentially identifying the others. Thanks in advance

    Bark or Mulch?

    Vince San Antonio, Tx I walked over this piece for weeks. I thought it was a piece of bark or mulch. I picked it up and washed it off like a rock. After I dried it off I noticed the burn looked odd.
  6. Hi everyone. I recently visited a quarry at the north of Spain (more specifically a geographical area called "El Bierzo", famous for its fossils from the carboniferous era) and I found the following ones. I think I have identified most of them but I would like to know your opinion. Thank you very much!

    I need help with a scale like fossil!

    Hello! I recently went to Grand Ledge, Michigan. This area is part of the Carboniferous, and more specifically the Pennsylvanian period. I found this fossil that appears to be scales. It’s not an imprint either, the scales are elevated. In the surrounding rock there are cordiate fossils and some kind of clam, I found ferns in the area as well. I believe that it was a swamp land way back when these were all alive. An ID on what kind of plant or maybe even fish scales would be awesome! Thank you!

    Sigillaria bark parts

    I found these while walking around Bochum/Herne in Germany, whichr is in the Ruhrgebiet and mainly carboniferous. The left one I'm pretty sure it's sigillaria, but not so sure on the right one. Greetings!

    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.

    Ferns + More Part Two

    This morning I went back to my new friends office to pick up a few more things I didn’t get last time. Very productive trip and I can’t thank Bill enough for sharing his finds with me.

    North central indiana

    While digging a new pond this fell out of the bucket. It is 15 in long, 8 in wide, 3 in thick. Very heavy. Will try to get good pics. Thanks Hope
  13. My son found several, hopefully, fossils in Sugar Creek in Turkey Run park in Indiana. He would like to know if they actually are fossils and of what. We are pretty sure the first one is a tooth. But have no clue about the other ones. Tree bark? Some sort of plant? Thank you for any help.
  14. Again I'm not sure what kind of bark this is? Found on old mine pit in Gelsenkirchen. Thanks!

    Is this fossilized tree bark? Help please

    Need help identifying what I'm guessing is Fossilized tree bark I found On banks of Yellowstone River. Erosion this year is nuts. More just this spring than I've seen in 33 years of Spring flood erosion.

    Tree Bark from Eocene ID

    I needed help identifying this tree bark. Its about 38 million years old from the Renton Formation in Western Washington State. I can see insect burrow marks but they could also be the details in the tree itself. Its about 12 inches long and 5 ish inches wide

    ID Wood, Iron, bones in MD?

    New to the sport. Found these yesterday at Calvert Cliffs and along the Potomac River. Big debate was weather the largest piece was bark that had been replaced by iron of if it was just a clump of iron from the bog. Several larger pieces observed on site in the cliffs and on the beach- some said they were wood; other just "bog iron". Please critique or help with id. Thank you.

    Mystery Tree, Bark and Leaves!

    Hi, I found these in the Carbonado Formation Washington State. 42 - 47 million years ago. Eocene under a coal seam. I found this bark of some mysterious looking tree. Around the same rock were tons of leaves, all similar to one species (except one leaf which I will also include). I am hoping people can identify the family of tree for me. I also am posting some strange "cattail" / "horsetail" like stem / leaf because this could possibly be a branch from this tree. disclaimer: I am still trying to figure out my phone. The last photo is more clear, larger and detailed. The only differ
  19. Good evening to everyone, I am really very new to fossils and petrified items so I am at a loss as to what I may have and I need your help. My grandfather left me this piece when he passed away a few months ago and it was marked "Petrified Mushroom". I have included some photos for your review and if you have any questions please let me know. The mushroom, for lack of a better word, is about 22" long by 14" deep by about 3/8" in height. It weighs just about 74 grams and has a spot in the middle that looks like wood, it looks like it was cut or removed from a piece of wood maybe a tree. Any hel
  20. Hi everyone. I recently visited a quarry at the north of Spain (more specifically a geographical area called "El Bierzo", famous for its fossils from the carboniferous era) and I found this one, which looks like tree bark with some particular marks. I have found several well preserved fossils at the same quarry but I will upload the pictures later. I have been looking for information about this one in particular but I haven't found out what type of tree it is, has anybody seen this before? Thank you very much!
  21. Today I figured that I would crack open a couple dozen concretions to see if there was anything of interest. Hitting them with a hammer is not the preferred practice, but I have so many that I could never freeze / thaw them in 2 lifetimes. The concretions that I opened today were collected from Pit 4, mostly flora and fresh water fauna are found at that location. Today I found the run of the mill ferns, leaves and a couple very pretty pieces of bark.
  22. Found on Cape Jack Beach Nova Scotia. I have 3 more like this. Stigmaria Root? I have one I know is an imprint.. but is this one a fossilized piece of root or an imprint? Would love any insight! Thanks in advance. I have more pictures but they are 3mb each.. Can I post more?

    Tree Bark? Coal Mine Exposure

    Might be a case of pareidolia but these oddly shaped rocks resemble something... First to me looks like tree bark. (is it real?) Second i have no idea what it looks like (most likely just a weird way the rock broke) [Found in Kanawha County WV, Dunkard Group]

    Greetings from Carbondale!

    This week we found ourselves headed for Carbon County, PA and looked up some places to go hunting. St. Clair was out, but there were some references to Carbondale here and there. As the name suggests, Carbondale was a coal mining town. There are active and inactive areas all over town, much of it fossiliferous. The most popular spot seems to be the one we went to, a tailings pile next to an apartment complex off of Westside Rd. The land status is unknown, but there were was nothing posted, so we ventured in as many have done before us. Our directions said to follow the gravel path
