    Any ideas on what this might be?

    Anyone know what this is? They are all the same thing...

    Possible vertebra?

    I have a little over 60 acres here in Southern New Mexico so I find some great specimens almost daily, unfortunately my knowledge in this field is minimal at best so I am grateful to read your comments and very eager to learn.

    Found possible Geode or something special

    So I pulled this off the side of one of our mts thinking I had a geode but it does not look like it. Any ideas or suggestions?

    Petrified wood?

    Found this at the edge of a shallow stream bed that flies down from Smoky Mountain region in East Tennessee at Indian Boundary Lake near Tellico Plains Tennessee at edge if Cherokee National Forest. It measures 2" long, 1.75" at widest 1/2" deep at deepest. A bit more flat on one side. Cross section shows a thin outer layer. Outside look reminds me of wood but I don't know. Looks like photos too big so I will load another below.
  5. Pterosaur

    Coprolite, concretion, or scute?

    Hi there! These two rocks were found in the Aguja Formation. Wondering if they could be coprolite, concretions, some kind of scutes (unlikely), or meteorites? Material from the Aguja formation is very foreign to me, so I’m at a loss! They are rounded at the top and flatter at the bottom. Found amongst very large dinosaur bones. Thanks very much! Lauren

    Meteorite or Coprolite?

    Hi there! This rock was found in the Aguja Formation. Wondering if it’s a meteorite, coprolite, or gastrolith? I honestly think it’s a meteorite, but the fact that it’s not magnetic throws me a bit. I don’t know a lot about meteorites though, so would appreciate any knowledge and opinions! Thanks very much, Lauren

    Coprolite or meteorite?

    Hi, I found this in a creek in Austin. It's very dense and has lots of smooth bumps. I was wondering if it was maybe Coprolite or maybe a meteorite. I tested to see if it was magnetic but I couldn't really feel anything. It's about the size of a golf ball. Can someone help me id this? Thank you!
  8. About 3 years ago I was walking along the dunes by the river, across from Farewell Bend State park on the Idaho side. I noticed that there was what looked to be an abnormal amount of crystallized and glassy material, conglomerates, basalt and lots of sand. The sand can be explained by the presence of mud volcanos and hydrothermal vents that can be seen in satellite photos. My premature analysis and imagination were wild with fantasy. The samples I was collecting were like nothing I've ever seen. I knew something was up, but there were and are, still more questions to answer. Idaho Falls sits a

    Rock w/ interesting features.

    This is about 1.5" long. It was found in Westchester ny. It seems to have some fossil marks, but the holes make me wonder if it is lava rock. I think meteors are much smoother and heavier, and no fossils.
  10. Hey all. I'm a long time meteorite collector but have decided to shift over to the fossil world at the moment. I have several hundred meteorites I would be willing to trade, and I'm looking for any North American dino material, preferably theropod. Also would be interested in spiny trilos. For those just looking for something cool, I have several lunar and martian specimens available. I also have several very nice HEDs (from the asteroid 4 Vesta) and other asteroidal achondrites, plus some interesting chondrites. Now, if you haven't collected meteorites before, you might think "com
  11. Found this in a field around Quihi, TX. The object imbedded in the stone is what we always called a meteorite. Some of these 'meteorites' I have collected are grapeshot, most about this size. I don't know what it is, but it is solidly imbedded into the stone from what may have been a hard impact as from a projectile or, falling from the sky. Any ideas? Is it cool?
  12. shocked / brecciated Belemnite from the Nördlinger Ries asteroid impact. For more information about the Nördlinger Ries and shocked Belemnites: http://www.impact-structures.com/impact-germany/the-ries-impact-structure-germany/deformations/ Pachibelemnopsis canaliculata is lower or middle Callovian - the type species is from the Ornatenton Formation, Ottingen. This belemnite may not actually be the same species if it's Bajocian, but should be closely related.

    Mysterious slabs of...?

    Hello guys. I'm very new in fossil collection. Not so long ago I purchased a box with stones, meteorites and fossils at garage sale. Now I'm trying my best to ID what is what. Can you please help me to identify those cross section slabs I posted on photos. Size of bigger slab is 82mm (3.2inch), thickness is 6.6mm (0.26inch). It has distinctive pattern of spiral "oncolite stromatolite dots". All sort of suggestions will be very helpful. Unfortunately no information was left by previous owner of that box. Cheers
  15. I know this is a fossil site but i was hoping someone here may have came across something like this before and may have some info to pass on. i found this near fenton, mi near a old tree while tilling. It was a little over 20 inches deep. it is almost perfectly round very very smooth and heavy and extremely hard. When hit by my tiller it got no damage only damaged my tiller. The tiller left metalic marks on the stone. i have since used my different things to try to scratch it with no luck. everything i use just just damaged. the item weighs around 41.7 grams

    Mississippi Meteorite

    From the album: Most of my collection

    Collected by my father while metal detecting around a bluff in the Purvis/Hattisburg area. This side still shows excellent fusion-crust. About 2 feet in the ground.

    Mississippi Meteorite

    From the album: Most of my collection

    Collected by my father while metal detecting around a bluff in the Purvis/Hattisburg area, about 2 feet below ground. This side was cleaned a bit by him to see what it was.
  18. I've just arrived back from a weeks holiday and to my delight there was a lovely gift from Carmine (Xonenine) sitting on my doorstep. I opened the parcel instantly, and was astounded with the variety and beauty of the specimens that Carmine had kindly sent to me. These are the beautiful curios that I was presented with... Elredgeops rana. Eldredgeops rana. The information about these specimens was provided by Carmine - Mid Devonian, Windom Shale, Moscow Formation, Section 8 - 18 Mile Creek, Hamburg, NY. A Meteorite. An interesting bottle. Interesting Micro-fossils fro

    Meteorite-Related Fossils

    Talking of meteorites (thanks for showing, 'xonenine'), I thought you might like to see these meteorite-related fossils. They’re not much as fossil specimens go, but they are a bit special for other reasons. They came from limestone in the region of Nordlingen in Germany. The town sits in the floor of a meteoritic impact crater identified by Shoemaker & Chao around 1960. It’s known as the Ries impact structure, and originally measured about 15 miles across, although it is now heavily eroded. The shock wave from the impact reverberated through the limestone bedrock in the area arou
