    Petrified wood?

    Hi. I found these in southern Utah and thought they were petrified wood until I read somewhere petrified wood is smooth. Does anyone know what I have?
  2. Hi everyone, first time poster. I found this rock at Blue Beach, Nova Scotia near the water line. At first I thought it was an organic specimen, like perhaps seaweed or roots growing on a rock, but on closer inspection it appears to be mineral. Ive never seen anything like this before. It looks a lot like petrified roots, but I figure thats unlikely. Does anyone know what this is? The last picture is from a magnifying app.

    Found object

    I don't know how to use this site so I hope I'm doing this right. I found this flattened and petrified piece on the Missouri River in South Dakota. I'm so curious to know what it might be.

    Petrified Snake

    Can anyone ID this fossil?
  5. brandon tibbetts

    Marine fossil

    Wanting to see if I could get a few opinions ? Thank you guys
  6. You can see the gills ok it and there are other types of fungi atop it. It's truly a magnificent and well preserved specimen and where I found it was in a rock bed of an apartment complex. I also possess a crystilized dragons heart if yall are interested in seeing that.
  7. Discovered May 8, 2023 - Glacier Washington USA Found next to river on bank. Don't have to stretch imagination far to see a human like face within rock. Crossing fingers and hoping BINGO! Please ignore timestamps - Images were shot today withing the last few hours.

    Anyone know what this is?

    My husband works in an underground coal mine and brings me home fossils, etc that he finds. Sometimes, I can identify them, sometimes not. Curious about these ones and a few others.
  9. Tonya 2873

    East Alabama

    I have several of these. Any ideas on what they might be. I have my own idea but would like other feedback

  11. Found these in my construction site. Could these actually be petrified dinosaur heads? Appreciate any insight.

    Hi guys anyone recognize these by chance?

    Petrified Shark Tooth North/Central Louisiana

    Hello , I recently found this tooth here in central Louisiana! Just curious if this is normal to find ? Or have I possibly stumped onto something greater ? Thanks

    Sea Urchin

    Hallo zusammen, Vor 4 Jahren fand ich an der Westküste Dänemarks einen etwas seltsam aussehenden versteinerten Seeigel und wusste nicht, was ich dort gefunden hatte. Weiß jemand von euch, was das ist? Im Internet etc. habe ich nichts gefunden. Im Anhang finden Sie das Foto. Vielen Dank und Grüße aus Deutschland Translation: Hello everyone, 4 years ago I found a somewhat strange looking fossilized sea urchin on the west coast of Denmark and didn't know what I had found there. Do any of you know what that is? I didn't find anything on the internet etc. Attached you will find the photo. Thank you and greetings from Germany
  15. Putting a shout-out here to see if any members have any nice specimens of pet wood from the Blue Forest locality in SW Wyoming. A researcher in the paleobotany department of the Florida Museum (FLMNH) is doing research on the species that are found in this locality. She has already identified several specimens as palm and (interestingly) a species in the avocado family. She is presently searching for additional specimens to possibly widen the floral diversity of this site. https://www.mindat.org/loc-216297.html I gave away virtually all of my specimens that I collected back in 2009 and my remaining pieces are presently on display in Powell Hall (the public display museum) on campus (see below). If any members out there have some nice pieces from this locality that they might wish to offer up for research purposes I'd appreciate hearing from you. If you can PM me with some nice (higher resolution) clear images of your specimens I'll forward those on to the researcher to see if they appear to be useful for her research. Thanks in advance. Cheers. -Ken

    Fossilized (or not?) Sea urchin

    Dear friends, please advise. I found this sea urchin today, it looks like a petrified one. But it us very light, feels like wooden, and it floats. I found a fossilized sea urchin not so long ago, but that one is much heavier. So could you please advise, if this one is petrified, or what could happen with it? Thank you!
  17. 20th October for was the date of the find. Whilst walking on one of my local beaches south wales, I was alerted to some very unusual looking shapes by my sons Charlie and Dylan so I will pass any awards/credit onto them, it didn’t take me long to realise it was anthracosaurus as I have studied and collected previously. Infact I posted the anthracite fossils on here and was not only told I had rocks with mineral staining but that the teeth shapes were coincidence. Even after i commented on how crocodilian some of the rocks looked, it’s no bother even snarge plumbers plumbers have the same certificate. Luckily I’m not stupid enough to throw away a prehistoric natural wonder. I’ve also attatched some pics of Carboniferous teeth from my garden that hadn’t lost their enamel so if you. Could retake a look at those I’d be grateful, thanks!!

    Anyone know or have any ideas?

    Just wondered if anyone could tell me what they think of these pieces.

    A Creek Find

    Does anybody have any idea what this is? It's the size of a throw pillow and it's extremely heavy it was embedded in the bottom of the creek behind the house I dug it out.
  20. Muuleey

    Help identify this bone please

    Found this piece in East Feliciana, Louisiana… Not sure if it “may be” a scull, possibly in the avian family or a bone from something else. Will try to get some good pics to post.

    Fossilized egg perhaps?

    My wife and I found this exploring a local creek bed this weekend in Southern KY. It appears to have a clear shell, but is split in two from all of its years in motion. Any clear direction or identification is appreciated. Thanks

    Petrified wood (fern?) for ID

    Hello, my friends. Several years ago I purchased this sample. Unfortunately, there was no information available for him. I found it interesting because of the center. I was hoping it might be a fern. Please help me identify it. Thank you Have a nice day
  24. Hi everyone, I found what looks like a fossil or a petrified part of an animal, and I'm fascinated by it. It's around 52cm long and an average of 17cm in width. I don't have a suitable scale to weigh it but would estimate between 32-35kg. I found it in Aljouf province in the north of Saudi Arabia. I'm eager to learn more about this intriguing find and am grateful for any guidance or expertise you can provide.
