    Bone or boned?

    Not sure if they're fossilized bone or not. The do stick to my tongue. They're fairly dense and anywhere from 4 to 4½ inches in length.

    What could this be?

    The community I live in was once a farmstead in Rowan County, North Carolina. I believe a section of my yard was once a creek bed. The other day I found one of my dogs playing with this item and after spending hours trying to find anything that looked remotely like this, I’ve come up empty and decided to ask you all. The object is hard, like rock, does not rattle, it’s approximately 1.75 x .75 inches. It’s coloring is almost flesh tone, with darker gray areas and yellowish parts inside the more damaged area. The space at first glance looking fetus like, and there seems to be a little wrinkled

    Fossilized heart?

    Found in NORTH CENTRAL MISSOURI, USA My mom and my nephew found this "rock" a few years ago. I was telling my mom about this group, she asked me to post this here. She's wondered for years if it could potentially be a Petrified heart, it has what appears to be valves on it. She doesn't know who she would contact to find out if it is a Petrified heart, so if anyone knows who to contact about this, we'd appreciate it. It weighs 1.92lbs. Thought you guys would think it was cool.
  4. Hi, My father found a weird looking bone, possibly fossilized, while walking on the beach of the German island Norderney. Date: 11.02.2021 Weight: 500g Height: 14.5cm Width: 12.0cm Opening: 4.0cm Any idea which species this might be from? Thanks a lot in advance, Helge

    Part of Bone Found in Dry Creek Bed

    Alright guys, I'm new here. This is my first post. But I went to go back to a place i used to go swimming when I was younger and on the walk down the creek to get there, I found this bone fragment. Odd thing is the dry bed was flowing this time which I have never seen other than one other time. I didnt think much of it as I found these all the time. I put it on my pocket, got some cool pictures and left. I came home and did a little digging and i cant figure out what its from. It feels like porcelain or china-ware full of air. So I'm assuming it is fossilized. It was found is Lisbon, Ohio. But

    Is this fossilized honeycomb

    I found this on a river bank in Louisiana. I've had it for years. I'm not sure what it really is. I would like to know though so I decided to ask this forum. Please help if you can. Thanks. compressor (1).zip
  7. Going through a forgotten corner of the basement last night I stumbled upon a box with some of my grandfather's "rocks" that my grandmother gave me when she sold her house and moved in with my mom a few years ago. As far as we (my grandmother, mom, and myself) know these were all found in Maryland. He worked for the state dot for years as a bridge inspector so they could be from anywhere in the state. The lighter 2 pieces I am confident that they are petrified wood, the brown/red looking one I am not as sure. The brown/red piece's outside is almost like spaghetti noodles laying tight against
  8. Hello all! I'm new to the game but thoroughly enjoying myself. So that said I could really use some help with identifying some (most) of the many "potential" fossils I"ve found. These were all found on river banks in North Central Iowa. I will list them by number and add more as I go. 1. <img>https://drive.google.com/file/d/15p9GKDhZK1mBZUiksjErnlhwQAb6E70b/view?usp=sharing</img> <img>https://drive.google.com/file/d/1l23A-DrcGvbaRKthIkT79gS6ZFM_RYa2/view?usp=sharing</img> <img>https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_XCaTR1krkVm5kqIneEJbWIV

    Cancellous Fossilized bone?

    I had this in my rock collection for quite some time. I must have thought it was a nice chunk of obsidian, years ago. I was going through my rocks with my son and found myself questioning whether this could be fossilized cancellous bone. Any insights would be most appreciated.
  10. Found several of these while digging a hole for the swimming pool in our house. It was very surprising as I found hundred of them. Can anyone tell it is century old. I took a video of my discovery too.

    Foot bone?

    This is a heavily permineralized bone. That is not in question. It was found along with many other Mammal bones likely Pleistocene. One has been identified. Another has been cut open and polished to show the inside and it is clear it is bone. This looks like some samples of foot bones I have seen. I would like to confirm it is not human and hopefully get a species.

    Is This A Crab Claw?

    Does anyone know what this is? I am thinking, perhaps, it is a piece of a stone crab claw? Someone mentioned shark tooth. Found at Quintana Beach, Texas; Gulf of Mexico ocean, two days after two hurricanes hit landfall.
  13. I found this claw while sifting gravels looking for shark teeth in a small creek. Does anybody have any ideas on what this might be? It was found in North Carolina.
  14. I’ve always wondered, how do tendons fossilize so commonly, and well? I commonly see fossilized tendons, and it always makes me wonder. They’re pretty soft, definitely no harder than cartilage, and I’m pretty sure as soft as (hard)rubber, so how do they fossilize so perfectly, even as well as bone does, in most cases? Especially since they’re always fossilized in perfectly straight lines, which should only be the case if both ends were still attached to the bones(unless they’re way different than human tendons), cause otherwise they’d scrunch up like snapped elastic, but on top of that, all th

    Fossilized Fish - Brazil

    Members, during a trip to Brazil almost 20 years ago, I purchased this composit of 4 different fossilized fish. The fossils of the fish look authentic and I tried to take photos to demonstate the relief of each fish. But I beleive they were "arranged" into this one piece. Not sure if and how getting 4 fossils into one piece is done. I am more interested in knowing if the fish are indeed authentic and what the individual species of each are? Also, is it possible to gague what period they are from? I am hoping someone will tell me that I did not haul this 10 lb piece

    Some type of bone?

    Found this piece at China Lake, CA on private property in a large deposit. Only removed this one piece for identification, can anyone help ID this specimen? Can provide more images if possible.

    Am I correct in guessing...

    Hello all, I was out rock hounding today and happened upon this...didn't realize what I had to I cleaned it off when I got home....would I be correct in saying this is receptaculitid??

    Am I correct in thinking...

    Would I be correct in assuming both of these are sea sponge??

    Is This Fossilized Coral or Bone or Cement

    Hello Everyone, I am so thankful for your insight. I have recently purchased a few books on Indian Artifacts and look forward to reading them so as to stop pestering. Anyway, In Florida on my own property I found several interesting and beautiful things after Irma. Our property on Marco took a direct hit and many of the trees on our property and the Seawall went into our garage. I ventured outside to see what I could find. Can someone please tell me if this is Fossilized Coral or Fossilized Bone? My brother thinks it is cement. I think its an anima

    Bone Fossil?

    Hi I found this odd shaped rock and was wondering if it's possibly a fossilized bone or tooth of some kind. Does it look familiar to any of you? It's 2 1/2 inches long, limestone. I find petrified wood near where this was found so it makes me wonder if it's some kind of fossil. It is definitely shaped differently than most limestone rocks I find.
  22. Hello, I was out walking for exercise during lockdown in the fields and found this egg like fossil on the surface. The farmer had been excavating topsoil from a ploughed field and using it to resurface a farm track. I have no idea what it is, could it possibly be a fossilized egg? I didn't realise finding stuff in fields was this exciting! Apoligies if the images are not up to standard. The outer material is red/orange, the inner material is dark grey Approx 2.8 CM Length, 2.1 CM Width, 1.3 CM Depth Thank You
  23. Hey guys, I saw this egg listed as fossilized dinosaur egg, I wasn’t really sure because eggs usually crystallize after being fossilized. I would appreciate your input. Thanks

    Fossilized Plant Identification

    Here is a fossilized plant, possibly the fruit of a plant a friend brought by and asked my opinion on its identification. I was leaning towards a cycad of some sort, but wasn't familiar with it. Any thoughts here? He doesn't know where he found it during the past 40 years of collecting, but it would have been in the U.S.A., unless he bought it along the way. Sorry about no scale - it is about 6 inches in length and about 3 1/2 inches wide. Thanks for any helpful hints.

    What is this I’m very curious

    Hey I was curious as to what this object I found while making a fence on my piece of land that I just bought in Southern California is. I’m not a fossil guy in fact I just created this account because I found this forum on google while researching about getting a fossil I’d.
