  1. Hello! I am new to this forum and new to the world of identifying rocks and fossils. I have several rocks and fossils that I am trying to identify on my own, but this one is proving to be beyond my VERY limited knowledge. My grandfather and I would go rock hunting in the Texas hill country when I was a little girl. He recently passed away and I am now slowly moving all of his rocks that he collected throughout his life to my home. Unfortunately, I do not know much about this rock. I ASSUME he acquired it in the Texas hill country but I am not certain. The rock is VERY heavy, probably 80-1

    Glittery as can be

    The hardness of my fossil is over a 5 on the hardness scale because it does cut glass. It's so heavy just for a small chunk, has shale like layers, sorta chalky, and has the most remarkable glittery dust of green copper red gold blue sparkles to it but very small it's best to use a magnifier to get good close up look. It's black in some areas as if it we're magma or from lava flow. What is the glittery part in fossils?

    ID requested, please.

    I found this in Corpus Christi, TX along the Laguna Madre. Any thoughts on what it might be? Thanks!
  4. Hello, hope every one is having a great day. Found this metal detecting and read that a fossil can eventually become metal? I have no clue? Thanks for your help.

    This is weird....

    I have no idea what this is. Any ideas? I really don’t want to break it open unless you guys suggest I do so. I think I found it in a field - my area is north central Ohio. It’s heavy and not brittle at all. Feels smooth but kind of like dry mud or clay. I don’t think it’s a rock but I need your help please. Thank you.

    Graptolite from Texas Pennsylvanian

    Yesterday I hunted for about 6 hours in Breckenridge Texas on my way back to Lubbock. Although I found no trilobites, I’m certainly glad I went. I found this graptolite and was wondering if anyone could help with further identifying, identified as graptolite because of the small “hieroglyphics” on the shell. Love this thing!!
  7. Becky Benfer

    Anything?

    Is this possibly a plant fossil or something else? Found in Ohio river, north central area. The small dot like marks on this rock are similar to other marks I’ve found on other rocks in the same area. Just wondering what it could be or how it was formed? Thanks for your help.

    Tree fern stem?

    I have been digging in the garden in Rossendale, Lancashire, to clear an area to pave and put up a green house. The area has previously been a barn, demolished in the 1990s, and since then field, then mowed as lawn. After clearing the turf I started to level the earth and stones below. I found that the old barn floor was about 8" (20cm) down, composed of ruble stones. In amongst them I suddenly found this which I immediately saw a resemblence to tree fern stems/trunks that I had seen in museum. It is very dense, weighing in at just over a Kilogram, denser than the surrounding stones in th

    Dense dark & shiny

    Was hoping it was dinosaur scat but then I noticed it was shiny in some places. Once I cleaned it I saw layering and I think “schist” making it shiny! It’s oddly very heavy . Found in a river in north central Ohio area. I saw one pic , somewhat similar that was said to be a plant. Any ideas? Thank you!

  12. Hi, My name is Neal, I found this rock on the side of a railroad bed near Caro, MI. It is heavy for it's size, and has quite a bit of porosity to it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!
  13. Hi everyone, I'm looking for a little advice on how to ship heavy fossils internationally (from the USA to the UK). I thought the forum might be a good place to ask, as quite a few of you may have done this in the past. I have the opportunity to purchase around 500kg (around 1000 pounds) of small fossils from someone in the US. I'm sure I've read members discuss sending fossils back from Tuscon in the past using shipping containers and guess this would probably be the best way to go. Any advice on how this works would be greatly appreciated.

    Can you ID this tooth

    Hello everyone. This is a great website, I've enjoyed browsing through the various threads. I'm not sure if I'm in the right place though. I've been trying to find out what type of tooth that I have for some time, although have failed miserably. I have no idea how old this is. I was told that it was a buffalo tooth, although it seems to be too large and is not the same shape. This measures: 2.12 inches tall 1.58 inches wide 1.08 inch thick Weight: 43.91 grams I know that this isn't exactly what is usually posted, although I thought that

    Fossils?! Please help identify

    The files I have are too large, I’m hoping to be able to post more pictures in the thread. These items were found on the Jurassic coast in the uk. The item in this image is smooth and solid, albeit there are parts of it broken off, it was whole when we found it.
  16. Hi guys, Recently I ordered a partial wooly rhino skull and as you could imagine I was on the brink of tears when it arrived. I ordered from overseas and someone must have dropped the box or something? but I am contacting the seller to see if I could get a partial refund (but I have my doubts). So I am trying to be positive and make this my "not so little" prep project, there is one problem though. I have no idea what I'm doing! (I don't even know if It's salvageable) So this is where you amazing people come in. I would love to get this looking as original as possible and was wondering if ther

    Heavy rock with holes

    Found this rock and am unsure what it is. It is heavy for its size and vaguely resembles a few different rock types i have searched for, but i have yet to find anything definitive as to what it is. Hoping someone on this forum could potentially identify this one. 1.956 lbs/887 g

    Petrified Log?

    Hello! I've had this in my yard for years and years. I'm not sure as to what type of tree it is or what kind of growths are on it. It looks to be like a lot of varieties of quartz. Any info is greatly appreciated!.. thanks!

    Fossil or not?

    I found this a number of years ago not far from Oshkosh WI. It seems quite heavy for its size and has that very interesting pattern. Possible wood grain, something else or just a rock? It was located in an area which has been disturbed many times - former farm field. Thanks for your input!! Jim
