    Petrified mushroom

    I think this is a petrified mushroom cap I found it in the kings river above camp 4 1/2. Here are some pics.
  3. Hello, I am trying to find some information about this item or point me to a direction where I might have some idea where to look. It is six inches in length and four inches width, weight is 4 pounds. It is petrified with chert and crusty type sides. My grandchildren are scared of it, but I think it is beautiful and it makes a great doorstop. Thank you.

    Hi, I just found this stone, which I think is a fossil, whilst walking my dog round a recently ploughed farmers field near Norwich. Just wondering if anyone could give me any idea of what it might be, Thanks.
  5. I have this unusual item that I found. Tt is stone on outside with strange looking bottom and sides. I hope someone can tell me if it is fossil, tooth or just a rock. Item is five inches in width and weights 11 ounces. Thank you

    Coral fossil?

    Hi there, I´m all new to the forum and on the search for the ID of a little white "stone" I found. Unfortunately I´m not sure where I found it. If I remember right it was on the balearic island of Mallorca in 2023. But I have no more details on it, as minerals normally are not in my focus. This one was quite strange, so I took it with me. Do you have any ideas what it might be? I would go with some kind of fossilized coral, but I have no clue Thank you and best regards, h8cru

    Native American stone effigy

    Believe this to be a native American stone effigy. Too right you have two worn grooves for the eye, to the left and under the eye you have a small nose, another carved groove for the top lip, and a groove for the mouth and chin area

    Stone or Petrified Wood?

    A while back I went to an estate sale, the deceased owner had a lot of rocks and some petrified wood in his backyard. I bought several petrified wood pieces. I am certain they are petrified wood but don't know where they came from. I also got this piece but it may just be layered or banded minerals sediment. It has green, red, black, rather cool looking I think. It's about 5 inches long. Anyone have opinions if it's just a rock or petrified wood? And where it may have came from? Thanks.

    stone or...?

    Can someone tell me whether it is worth preparing this stone further or is it really just a stone? Found a few weeks ago on the Baltic coast on the beach in the marl between Fehmarn and Heiligenhafen

    Very strange rock

    Hi everyone, newbie here. I was walking through the woods along a creek in upstate New York and found this rock in the creek. I've never seen anything like it, so thought I'd show it here and see if anyone can figure out what it is. It's about 12" high. I'm thinking it may be a rock full of fossils, but I surely don't want to break it open because I don't know what I'm doing, and don't want to destroy it. I've also searched on the internet for a couple hours and didn't find anything that resembles this

    Michigan fossil

    Found in a ditch near in the western lower peninsula of Michigan. I'm guessing stromatolite. What do you think?

    what kind of rock is this ???

    Hi this is matt again can any one tell me what kind of rock this is ?? here is a photo
  18. Found several of these on a beach in Grand Marais, MN on Lake Superior. The light colored part is a bit rougher feeling and the red/maroon knobs or nodules are quite hard and smooth and raised. I can’t find anything on them…someone mentioned in another forum possibly Rapakivi Granite or Granite Mica Schist but I think they seem a bit different than the images I saw of those. The largest one has a few tiny pockets of crystals. Thoughts?
  19. fossils4fun


    Hi, I find these now and again, different sizes but similar in shape. Is this just a rock or a fossil? I'm from northwestern Arkansas, thanks.
  20. Found this walking the beach. I assume it’s sandstone. After a closer look I noticed either a feather or fish fin stuck in the middle. Not sure if anyone can see it clear enough to help identify what it is. Sorry, I took the picture with my phone.

    Petrified charcoal or stone?

    Hello everyone, I found an odd rock at my beach in Florida. It looks like charcoal. It’s heavy like cement. Sand has formed rock around the bottom. (Coquina?) It also has rust colors around the sandy parts. It probably has been in the ocean a long time. From looking online, it might be Lignite. Just curious how old it might be and what it is. Thanks everyone!

    Stone with lines from Chile

    Hi, my 5year old son found this in Chile, near Cochamo in a riverbed and the more I look at it I wonder how a stone got this texture. Maybe you can help us understand how this happened. It is about 13inches long and very heavy. Thanks!!

    Can't find the fossil id

    Hi, today on a everyday walk with a dog in the forest (in Poland, near Germany) I found half of a stone. There was weird oval thing inside, so I took it home to see if there's some fossil inside. I opened the stone and I found out that theres something inside. It's smal, ~10 mm, but I have only half of it. Does anyone have any ideas?
