    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

    Petrified wood?

    Hi all! Is this petrified wood? I found it while hiking in Jackson Hole, WY. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I’ve posted these pictures around Facebook but haven’t gotten very many responses. Thanks!
  4. Hello! I've been to the main digging site in the Blue Forest of Wyoming a couple of times but would like to try a couple of other sites there. Does anyone have the directions to the other digging areas? Thank you!
  5. These "rocks" were found in North San Antonio, Texas. I started to notice, repeatedly, this similar shape in different "rock". So I started collecting them and now have a large sample of these "rocks" all with this particular shape. I feel the shape is so oddly unique that this can not be a coincidence. The shape is almost identical in each "rock" regardless of size and composition. I was hoping you could explain what this phenomenon is and why or what these are, and why this same shape is so common in "rocks" of different composition? I look forward to your explanation. Thanks for your time.

    Petrified Wood with a bone?

    Hey Folks, My son and I found a bunch of petrified wood close to our house up here in Cochrane, Alberta. Could the piece next to the wood be bone? E&B

    Petrified Wood ID

    I started collecting smaller chunks of petrified wood but sometimes find these larger chunks that I believe are also petrified wood. I would just like confirmation to make sure I am not misidentifying specimens.

    Caramel colored petrified "wood".

    I recently found this fossilized example on the surface of the desert in east central Utah, Emery county, on the road to chimney rock. The caramel color isn't typical of the petrified wood that I've found before and I'm wondering if this might be another plant such as a palm, fern, cycad, or something else. Growth rings are present but are not particularly strong. The "sap" inside appears to have turned into a different type of mineral. The light green highlights on the surface are lichens and are not part of the stone. Any ideas as to what type of plant this is? Thanks.

    Petrified Wood - Carbonized?

    Hey Folks, We found this hunk this afternoon. Any idea why the piece of wood here in black is carbonized? It comes off when you rub it. Other pieces we found today are definitely fossilized, but this one is different. Any ideas? E & B
  11. I volunteer at school, and while volunteering, I discovered this with some kids while working on the school garden. We were digging and getting boxes ready for the planting season. It was an interesting day! Didn’t expect to find this at a school! Makes me wonder how old it is. Jared

    Fossilized wood

    Can anyone tell me if there is a difference in petrified wood and permineralized wood? Thanks!

    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.

    Nice petrified wood find

    Petrified or concretion?

    Hey guys I found this in a dried up creek bed right above where a dam had been. The location was in Sandia, Texas. Very close to the mathis lake state park. I've done some research but I' be had it about 4 or five yrs now and would love an opinion from someone that has had experience in this field. I think it's a petrified peach half. What do y'all think?

    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
  17. Found in Blount County Alabama near the Blackburn’s Fork of the Locust Fork River
  18. So, I was hanging fossils on my wall. I’ll post a picture of that later. I happened to grab a piece of petrified wood, when I noticed something I didn’t notice before. There were tunnels inside the petrified wood. One tunnel goes clear to the other side of the wood. You can see through it. That is the first discovery. Not sure if that’s caused by a prehistoric tree parasite or something else. Second discovery, on September 11, 2020, I discovered a large piece of Coprolite in Kemmerer Wyoming. Not sure if I spelled that correctly. Many people here and at the quarry said
  19. 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

    Reptile heads or rocks?

    So over the last few years I've collected different rocks, fossils, and anything else I find that i think is unique. Eventually, I go through them and have a closer look. I'm sure my eyes are making things up, but, hey, why go om wondering when I can just ask?? I have some rocks here some found in Indiana and some in Ohio and I'm wondering if they are reptile heads of some sort(I'm assuming that's a thing people actually find lol) If you tell me they are rocks, I will believe they are rocks and will appreciate the knowledge. Thank you in advance! You guys rock(yes, pun intended)! Oh, and the

    Is this Petrified Wood?

    Is this petrified wood?
  22. I found this tooth that looks petrified while digging a garden in NC, USA. It appears to have cavities. I cannot find a tooth of a dog, wolf or bear that looks similar. The tooth is wider than most K9 teeth photos I’ve seen online. Any ideas of origin and estimate age would be greatly appreciated if visually identifiable.

    Amazing Pertified Creatures

    I found these petrified specimens on private land in the northwest part of San Antonio, Texas over the last 10 months. I did little, if any digging, as recent rain has exposed them. I'm here to learn about the science, as well as what I have in my possession. They are beautiful creatures whom appear to have been frozen in time. What exactly are they and how did they end up in this state of condition. I'm excited to hear you responses as I am new to this "world of fossils" but a willing participant. Thanks for letting me take part.

    Coprolite or just rock?

    Is this a coprolite or just rock? There is something in the center that goes all the way through.

    Is this just a rock or a petrified walnut?

    I thought this was just a rock but I saw in a book this could be a walnut. Any ideas?
