    Petrified Termite or ant colony

    This was near wear (as best I can tell) a tree was struck by lightning or burnt out at least 40 years ago. It is rock but I’ve soaked it but am scared to use vinegar? Should I chance it? Any idea what it is? It’s 5 inches in Links 4 inches high 3 inches deep this is a close-up picture
  5. Hello there. I'm new to fossil collecting and just wanted some help with identifying if this is a real spinosaurus tooth or not. The seller advertised it as real and claims it comes from Morocco. I was recommended this seller, and they've got good reviews, but I think I'm just a bit paranoid after reading a lot of stories about fake fossils. Unfortunately I can't remove it from it's case so I can't show off all the angles. Any help is much appreciated. I'm also new to this site, so if I'm doing this wrong, I apologise!
  6. Hiya everyone my sister got me this trilobite as a gift was wondering if it’s had any restoration to it

    Fossil shark vert from Morocco

    I got this fossil shark vertebra for free. It was filled with matrix on it so i prepped it. Its from the Oulad Abdoun Basin, Morocco near Khouribga. The location has fossils from the Cretaceous-Eocene. Does anyone know the species/genus or age of this shark vert?

    Walton on the Naze odd find

    Hiya, found an odd thing at Walton, originally thought it was a piece of bone but it doesn't seem to have the same texture as my other pieces of bone, so I'm at a loss. Was wondering if it could be a piece of pyritised wood? It seems too weighty to just be a rock. Thanks for any help

    What kind of rock is this?

    San Antonio, Tx 78023 After this weekends hard rain, this rock was sticking out. It looked much smaller at first. Oddly enough a rock I found a couple of months fits with it. The fractures on the front of it is why I’m asking what it is. It kind of looks like card board between the fractures.
  13. San Antonio, Tx 78023 The rock in the left was found behind my sisters house about 30 yards from a dried out creek bed. It was found about 8 in down while metal detecting. So far we have pulled about six various size rocks from this hole. It looks like it hard a corn, on the top right of that rock. The rock on the right is just another one from my back yard.

  16. Hi Guys, I have bought a Psittacosaurus skeleton. It came in pieces, some bones were broken etc. I put the bones back together and I am quite happy with the result. Now I would like to assemble the skeleton properly. Has anyone of you done something like this before and can tell me which material is best to take from it? Attached are some pictures of the current state and 2 pictures of another skeleton already mounted, that's how I would like to do it. Any Tips, Tools or something? best regards from Germany Phil
  17. Hello does this egg look real . Looks like its missing some shell and looks not to be prepped. Possibly an oviraptor egg? Is 18 cm long Thanks
  18. KompsFossilsNMinerals


    Hi everyone, this is a trilobite I bought when I was like 5 at the Natural History Museum in Washington, DC. Unfortunately, over the past decade I've lost the ID tag for it. I think it's a flexicalymene or calymene, but I'd really appreciate any possible guesses!
  19. San Antonio, Tx 78023 These three rocks were part of the several used for the flower beds in my front yard. I know that doesn’t mean a lot, but my entire yard is covered rocks just as odd. What caught my attention is the difference in shape, but had a similar break or tear.

    Is this a turtle?

    I have no idea what I am looking at. Three years ago we moved to a house in the middle of no where with a creek in the property. We have found many many fossils and cool things that I can usually use google to identify. We stumbled upon this and it looks and is shaped just like a turtle. Is this a fossilized turtle?

    Ramanessin Bone Fragment?

    Out hunting on the Ram, came across this odd piece, my mind immediately jumped to a bone fragment of a large aquatic reptile, the holes in it are like nothing I've ever seen, and it feels lighter than a rock of similar size. So, I'm hopeful, any ideas or help would be awesome! Thanks guys!
