  1. I had the opportunity to visit another Silurian site in the northern Georgia/southern Tennessee area. This is now the third such site I've visited, but the first in the Rockwood Formation as opposed to the Red Mountain Formation. As far as I can tell there's very little different between the two lithologically and paleontologically, with the Rockwood and Red Mountain occupying pretty much the same stratigraphic position. The difference seems to be that the TGS prefers to use the term "Rockwood" to describe it's Niagaran Silurian system and the GGS and AGS prefer the term "Red Mountain", mostly

    Ordovician coral from Tennessee

    I have these few pieces of coral I need help identifying. They were all found in middle Tennessee. They were all found in the same place and their formation is part of the stones river group. I also have this weird little guy from Tennessee that my dad found on a roof.

    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!
  5. Just wanted to post some pics of my finds from 2020 I have a Silurian roadcut in Davidson county, a Devonian spot in Parsons, and I hunt the roadcuts that line hwy 840 in middle Tennessee. I am Brand new to this forum, and I'm looking for new collecting spots I can trade locals! Visit my page on here to see more of my finds!

    Possible Fossil Land Mammal Tooth

    Hello. This is my first post. I have little experience in fossils except perhaps an eye to notice they're not quite a rock. I "think" this is a fossil tooth. Found in Tennessee, USA, Mid-Ordovician area in general; at approx 1,100 altitude in the dry portion of a chronically drought stricken river. Partially mineralized and lying where 100-200+ old trees are. Their roots are exposed; fossil wood can't be ruled out. I appreciate your thoughts. I'm a professional rock hound of 10 years with 60 years of accumulated knowledge. Science has sheets fascinated me; geology is i

    Cool find today

    Looking to see if anyone can tell me what I found. Big 1 looks to be solid quartz. The 2 small ones are as big as a finger.
  8. Caving friend of mine took this incredible trilobite photo
  9. I believe might be a coral or sponge of some sort any ideas? Found around smithville Tennessee
  10. What kind of gastropod is this? Found in east Tennessee?
  11. Some fun finds here in Tennessee Devonian /Ordivician area. Just north of Hendersonville TN. Found in creeks, rivers, and streams.
  12. Can anyone identify? Spyroceras maybe?
  13. Some fun finds here in Tennessee Devonian /Ordivician area. Just north of Hendersonville TN. Found in creeks, rivers, and streams.
  14. I really almost dismissed it as a rock but second guessing. Could this be a shark tooth possibly? It was found along with crinoids and horn corals in a creek in Nashville area Tennessee

    Found in dry riverbed in middle TN.

    Found this while hunting geodes in TN. Any thoughts?

    Ammonite fragment?

    Hello, I recently found what I believe to be a fragment of an ammonite in some fossil rich dirt. It was found in middle Tennessee not too far from a creek. Thanks
  17. Brachiopods orthoceras crinoids all found right here in Hendersonville TN Sumner county just north of Nashville. Love to fossil hunt and see what I can find while imagining worlds of the past.

    Are these fossils?

    I recently took a trip up to a few localities of the Murray Shale of Blount County, Tennessee, which contains fossils of the early Cambrian period. I looked around in some of the loose shale on the ground to see if I could find a small brachiopod or hyolith (both of which are common to this locality). This was my first time going out and looking to see if I could find a fossil on my own. I took a few pictures of what I thought could possibly be fossiliferous material of some sort, but ultimately could not determine if what I found was indeed fossiliferous. Most of what I saw appeared to be fos

    Is this possibly petrified wood?

    I found this while walking on the lake the other day and I was wondering if it was possibly petrified wood? I know this area is known for the Fort Loudon troops and the Cherokee Indians but I'm not sure of the history prior to that. Can someone please help me figure this out???

    Trilobite ID

    Happy New Year from Nashville, Tennessee! I’ve been working through a piece of local limestone and I need some ID help please. All are approx 26 mm wide and 31 mm long. Thanks! Shauna
  21. Its been a long time since I last posted any finds, so I thought I'd show you folks what Ive been finding so far. Ive been out a lot this year, and have done quite a bit of exploring. I haven't taken pics of everything yet but Ill add to this as I do. This past summer I took a trip to west Tennessee to an exposure of the Coffee Sands, a Late Cretaceous formation. I was able to find the site, but unfortunately, I found no fossils there. Luckily there was an exposure of the Lower Devonian Birdsong Shale nearby! This site exposes the 'brachiopod zone' which is the bottom of the format
  22. This is about 38cm (14") in length. About 22 cm (9") circumference. Cross section is oval shaped about 5cm x 8cm (2" x 3") It weighs about 3.2 Kg (7 lb.) It feels very dense. The surface has pock-marks that look like they could be where leaf stems had attached at one point. The cross section doesn't have any features that I think look like vasculature. The paint on it happened because it sat on my father's fireplace for years and years, and it must've been dripped on during a repainting of the living room. My father and I found this on a Bo

    Horn Coral Cross Section?

    Since this large rock is filled with Bryozoan fossils, I went off in a search to study Bryozoans. I ended up back on this group, reading a post where Rockwood identified a photo as a Horn Coral cross section, and it looked very similar to what I have, LOL! So, I am sticking my neck out there and asking if this might be a cross section of Horn Coral? This is an edge of the large rock, so you are seeing two sides of it. (first shots are looking at it from the side, third photo is looking down from the top) I have photographed it from many angles and have studied it a lot. There seem to be s
  24. I had a chance to look for rocks in a new location today and WOO HOO, I found a huge rock that should keep me busy for a while! This baby is filled with tons of interesting things! I am going to start with just a couple of questions that I THINK I may know the answers to. Are these samples of a type of Fenestrate Bryozoan fossil? If not, maybe coral of some type? These were found at the base of a small mountain/hill in Pulaski, TN, where no fossil hunting has been done (yet!). If these are a type of Fenestrate Bryozoan, it looks like they have more of the structure intact than I am used to

    Brachiopod

    We visited our son at the house he bought outside of Lafayette, Macon County, Tennessee, United States. This limestone with a nice brachiopod and a partially exposed one and others was sitting along the fire pit. No telling where it is actually from or who left it there, but it may well be a local find. Please tell me if I am correct on the type of pod? Richmondian (Upper Ordovician) strata in the Central Basin of Tennessee. Ordovician Period beginning 488.3 million years ago and ending 443.7 million years ago. 1 5/8" w 4.2 cm x 1 1/4 3.2 cm high Brachiopods- Rafinesquina ponde
