  1. The first is a large piece of petrified driftwood I found in Big Brook a couple years ago, the second is a fragment I am trying to ID. I noticed that the grain texture on the fragment looked like the wood grain on my piece of petrified wood, so I am trying to figure out if it might be petrified wood as well. Thanks! @Trevor
  2. A recent find. Has a texture that could be bark, but I am leaning towards coral.
  3. Wasn't sure if this was petrified wood, or just anthracite coal from another location that had gotten lost in the brook. Seems to have bark on one side, but wasn't sure what to make of it.
  4. Hello. I want to show you some examples from my collection. This is a Carboniferous wood. The preservation is not the best, but for me these samples are interesting for the presence of crystals of smoky and ordinary quartz on them. A sliver that has broken off from a larger fragment. There is more quartz than wood Perhaps a stem or stump - it is almost round in cross section. And thickly overgrown with crystals. Large flattened fragment; perhaps the first sliver was from it.

    Identification help please

    Hi everyone!!! Just having a tough time identifying whether this is fossilized wood or a fragment of tusk. It feels weighty, and doesn't feel like a regular stick of wood if that makes sense. Any help would be greatly appreciated Thank you! I should mention it was found along an estuary, and was part buried and part exposed so likely once buried and the tide had exposed it

    Wooden Cocoon?

    Found in South Eastern Bartholomew County Indiana.. My younger brothers (Ages 8-9) were messing around digging random holes back in the 17 Acres of Forrest behind our house and came across this.. It looks almost like a Mud Wasp Nest but it's solid wood instead of dirt.. Maybe some type of Root? I don't think it's a fossil but figured it couldn't hurt to ask someone else who knows way more about this stuff than myself.. Any help identifying it would be greatly appreciated! Little bros think it's a dinosaur tooth (LOL).. Dimensions.. Length-(8cm) Width-(3cm) Height(1.5cm)
  7. Good evening. A couple of days ago I managed to go to three places with petrified wood at once. These outlets are not nature reserves; most often, these are fields that are just cultivated, roads and natural outcrops of bedrock (gullies, ravines, etc.). The first place is a small field, as well as a forest protection strip near a spruce planting (it was just plowed up). On a country road, one can see the rock outcrops, in which the wood is hidden. Large cobblestones are also found in the root-bed, but more often these are small sl
  8. Dear All, I want to buy a dinosaur bone slice but I also see the Palm or some Wood slices are very similar. Are you able to see the difference between what is wood from what is dinosaur bone at the attached photos? Best regards. Alvaro.

    Southern Illinois petrified wood

    Out collecting some chert in Union County Illinois and came across two chunks of what I think are petrified wood. The small piece in the first two photos shows good wood grain, and an odd black chert or almost coal looking layer around the outside. The larger piece doesn't seem to show much grain...notched a corner off on a tile saw but the cut is so rough it's hard to see what the grain looks like. Both have an odd flattened cross-section seen in the photos. The 'bark' is odd to me too - thought it might be fossilized bone at first but don't think so anymore. Anyone else that
  10. I'm trying to identify the polished fossil material in this Georgian English snuffbox, circa 1760 to 1820. Is it mammoth ivory? Walrus? Wood? Something else? The material is set in unhallmarked sterling silver. Thanks in advance for your suggestions. Adam
  11. Going through my wood pile with a loop and saw all these strange things on this peice, just the other day learned about shipworms on here and wondering if that's some of what I'm seeing? Curious about all the black things in holes and the part of wood sticking out that is covered in something.

    Walton on the Naze odd find

    Hiya, found an odd thing at Walton, originally thought it was a piece of bone but it doesn't seem to have the same texture as my other pieces of bone, so I'm at a loss. Was wondering if it could be a piece of pyritised wood? It seems too weighty to just be a rock. Thanks for any help
  13. Rubykicks


    I finally took a picture of this beauty. I believe it is stigmaria, but please correct if I'm wrong! I also have other pieces I'm unsure of and would love feedback from anyone with the time. The first 3 pictures are the same rock Picture 4-6 are the the same Picture 7 and 8 are the same And then the rest are the same.

    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.

    Petrified wood ID?

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

    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

    Mystery object on petrified wood

    While y'all are on the subject, wanted to get some opinions on this. I collect a lot of petrified wood, wouldn't even have picked this up if weren't for the odd thing on it. Could it be bark? It's strange how rounded off it is, and there are tiny white dots in it's trail on the slice it's on. Appears to have a pattern on it, maybe someone will recognize it as a specific type of tree.
  21. 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
  22. So i got a few questions as im now fixing my collection. I might buy these wood shelfs. Is it good for fossils? N1 second question i got a cabinet drawer. I got some paper/cardboard boxes from a rock shop and i have printed out information about the fossils like locaiton, Age, Species/genus but will the printed paper be harmful? They are beside the fossil or under it. last question. I made my own riker boxes and made it with this Backround. Sadly I dont know the name of the Backround material i used I bought this a few years ago. N2 N2 n1

    Fossilized wood

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

    Petrified wood??

    I was creek walking today and found this 15 lb piece of petrified wood. I looked up similar sized pieces but I feel like this may be "extra cool"? I don't know much about fossils but I have a passion for wood formations and this seems to be a knot from the tree with the burl or tumor in tact on the back side. My question is if it were to be sliced would it be more valuable because of the natural swirling of the burl? Or is this even a cool find at all? I'm new here guys haha! Thanks in advance for any input or comments!

    Petrified wood with grubs

    Around 40 years ago my dad dug up this fossil, he worked in construction so it was likely not in the original location but perhaps in an old garden or waste pit. As a child I broke off the large grub, sorry! I was trying to get a closer look. Just wondered where this might have originated, what the insects were and what type of stone now inhabits their bodies, is it quartz? Found in England (Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire area)
