    Central Arkansas possible fossil

    A friend asked me if this might be a fossil. I don’t know but I do know where to ask! The piece is heavy and will just barely take a scratch from a high-carbon steel pick. Thanks in advance!

    Plant or Animal - Ordivician

    Please advise what type of animal is this: it could be a trilobite, brachiopod or plant-animal. N.2 N.3 N.4 - this is most likely a small trilobite ( 1 cm) N.5 N.6 N.7 -left side segment N.8 - here I put some oil on this segment for better visibility

    Devonian Fossil?

    I found this fossil??? on the Creek Trail at World’s End State Park in northern Pennsylvania. They are 3” and 2” in length. It doesn’t seem to fit with the other Devonian fossils I found. Were there plants at that time? Also does anyone know what type of rock this is? Have I been fooled and it’s just marks from chisels? There is also one very similar to this in the small museum in that area. I think it was a scout project and labeled “Unidentified”

    Is this some sort of algae ?

    Hi. We found this amongst the mortality plates. It is an ordovician exposure along the water in Green Bay Wisconsin. Can anyone help us Id? There are two of these in this plate. I've never seen anything this delicate looking in any of the other specimens.

    is this a lepidodendron ??

    I am quite sure this is a tree/gymnosperm Is it a lepidodendron. It was found in the screameston coal member carboniferous, Northumberland England.

    A Very Tiny Mystery

    Hello wonderful fossil-people! If you and you're gang enjoy solving a groovy mystery, I have a post for you! This rock was found in an area of Northern Arizona that is very well know for producing lots and lots of bryozoan, brachiopod, and crinoid fossils, as well as crystals and geodes. The bit of rock in question was found in the side of what appears to be a broken geode. There is a triangular fragment of stone that does not match the material surrounding it. There is also a white discoloration encompassing the triangle that I've highlighted in green on one of the photos below. The colo

    Petrified wood ID?

    Found this in The Netherlands, Maasvlakte. Probably petrified wood, but not sure what kind?

    West Virginia fossils

    While backpacking in the Cranberry Wilderness I found this soccer size rock with what appears to be carbonized plant material encased in a sandstone matrix. Can anyone shed further light on this specimen? Thank you
  11. Last weekend I took advantage of the warm weather to visit my favorite exposure of the Llewellyn Formation in Eastern Pennsylvania and collect some Late Pennsylvanian plants. I had not been to this site in some time but I was inspired to visit it again by some recent Llewellyn Formation fern finds by @frankh8147. I had the site to myself except for the noise of nearby ATVs and BMX bikes whose riders were also seeking to take advantage of the great weather. Despite temperatures in the fifties, there was still snow on the ground. I spent about 4 hours digging out and splitting large blocks of sh

    Fossil in Chalcedony?

    I have this piece of chalcedony that I polished years ago in a tumbler. I always thought inclusions were automatically mineral or geologic but a recent thread said that is not always the case so I am wondering if any of these inclusions are biologic, thanks for your help. Oh and there is also an air bubble (last photo) not sure if that means anything

    Fossil Plant?

    Hi, what is the identification of this fossil in my collection. It seems like a very good specimen.

  19. Hi! I've been a great admirer of this forum for years. The counter-septarian structure thread... *chef's kiss* My brother-in-law sent me this picture and asked if I thought it might be a dinosaur fossil. I told him probably not, but that I knew just where to ask to find out what it is, or might be. All I have is this photo, but based on the circular kitchen-thing it's sitting on I'm guessing maybe around 8-10" in size. My uninformed guess is it's a plant stem if it's anything. I'd love to read your educated guesses. THANKS!!!

    Possible Plant Fossil?

    Hey everybody, this is a possible fossil I found in June of 2010. The matrix is roughly 6 1/2 CM long, and it was found in Arlington, Virginia in a small stream by an apartment building. If I could get any identification ideas on it I'd be really grateful, even if it isn't a fossil!

    Pennsylvanian Plant ID Help

    This past Saturday I collected some Late Pennsylvanian ferns and plants from an exposure of the Llewellyn Formation in Eastern Pennsylvania. I got lucky and found some new things to add to my collection, including the following. I am not quite sure what they are. My guess is that they are associated with a lycopod - possibly the terminal shoot of a lycopod branch where the Cyperites leaves come off. I did find Lepidodendron branches and Cyperites bicarinatus at this site. These fossils are really small - only about 1.5cm to 4cm in length.

    Pennsylvanian Mystery Plant

    After searching through a couple of publications on Pennsylvanian plants, I am a bit stumped on what this plant could be. It is certainly not the classic fern or horsetail that one often collects from the Llewellyn Formation of Eastern Pennsylvania. The preservation is ok - not perfect, but better than some plant material I have collected from this site. I unfortunately broke the piece trying to transport it out of the site. Here is an attempted close-up of the individual leaves and their venation Here is the negative with some more preserved venatio

    Strange Specimen

    Received in an opal parcel, i have been told this is a fossil, maybe of a plant stem. If so, i would like to at least put a definite name of some sort on it. Any and all help is appreciated! feel free to ask any questions! Thank you! IMG_2225.MOV

    Whitby area finds

    A couple of finds from the Whitby area. Does this plant fossil have enough diagnostic features for an identification? Secondly, my daughter has been desperate to find some ichthyosaur material for ages now. She was so happy to find this, at first glance I thought it was just another piece of septarian nodule but on closer examination I think she’s probably right about it being bone, albeit likely an unidentifiable chunk. Still, she’s happy and it’s going in the ichthyosaur cabinet as her first find
