    Any ideas what this could be?

    Fossil or not?

    Here I have two more rocks that I found in the Woodbridge, NJ area. I could see some type of shell in one of the rocks and possible plant material in the other. Let me know what you think please. Sorry here is the other photo.

    Travertine on weird rock?

    Found this rock with what appears to be travertine buildup on it? Found in Ilion NY.
  7. JoeGevalt

    Unknown shells

    Need help to figure out what this is. Looks like some sort of shell but seems incomplete
  8. JoeDINO

    Unknown thing

    My son found this in the same spot or general area as the ammonite thingy. They both have similar markings as well which is odd to me I guess. It's about 3" long and 1 " wide at its widest. thank you in advance
  9. Rubykicks

    Unusual find

    I found this in Indiana near Columbus. I originally thought it may have been a tool of some sort because of the triangular shapes, but the more I look at it, the more I've wondered if it's a bone. Or maybe it's just a beat up rock. Thsnk you in advance for any informatio.

    Fossilized Wood or Stone?

    I found this in a creek in middle Tennessee. I’m wondering if it is just a rock or if it could be petrified wood? Thanks!
  11. Hi everyone this is Matt again. Today in the creek I found this rock full of clams. Here is a photo:
  12. Hi this is Matt again. Today in the creek I think I might of found a sharks tooth fossil but I am not sure about that. Can anyone tell me what it could be ?

    Id Please?

    Hi, what is this? Thanks
  15. first post, so im gonna try my best. Found this weird rock by a cliff in San Antonio, Texas. I'm not sure what it is, but the best way I can describe it is from the top it looks like a circle with something around it, and then a layer of rock. Also has these white/tan cracks in the middle structure. I'm confused, but maybe yall might know or see more that I'm missing. Any replies would be awesome, thanks! best i could get with details: 10cm long 6 1/2cm width on brown 4cm width on red 2 1/2cm for the little circle on top

    Rock or Fossil

    We were at Whiskey Bridge outside of Bryan, Texas looking for fossils. Found a weird rock, but my kids think that it is something.
  17. Vickie B.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I found this over the weekend at a rock quarry in west central Minnesota. I just cannot find out what it is. Can anyone help me? It's not magnetic and weighs what I feel it should, for the size.
  18. Rockwood

    Anomalocarid ?

    I was packing up to call it a day searching crushed rock out by the old rail siding when I noticed this. Could it be ? The finds there are Ordovician I think.
  19. I found this in Casselman River in Rockwood Pennsylvania a few years back just laying in the middle of the river as I was walking through it trying not to slip on the rocks haha! Always thought it was an intriguing & unique find but still to this day I have no idea what it is. No one whom I've showed it to over the years could identify it either. Needless to say, we're not expirenced in fossils none the less! I just stumbled upon this site and thought to myself how great it would be to have it finally identified after all these years (found it in 2014) so I figured I'd post some photos a

    Is it a fossil? Or something else?

    While out for a walk my son picked up this rock. He thinks it is a fossil but I’m not so sure. If it is he would love to know what kind of fossil it is and if it isn’t we would love to know what has caused these lines. It was a surface find in Southern Alberta just on a dirt path at the top of a coulee. It is about the size of an average females thumbnail. The front has lines all over it. The back is smooth. thank you for any insight you can give!

    ID please

    I found this beauty in knights ferry, California. It is very different from anything I've collected yet. I am eager to get any ideas of what it is or how it formed? The strip along the top is defined and somewhat deep and the grooves all over it are also pretty deep.
