  1. 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.
  2. 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.

    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
  4. 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?
  9. Dale from Utah

    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.
  12. 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
  13. 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)

    Nice petrified wood find

    Found this nice little piece while rock hounding last weekend...just wanted to share...
  18. I found this online and its free. I want to store fossils in this but i have heard that some wood damage fossils. Is that true? And will this cabinet work? I asked the seller what type of wood it is but they don't know.
  19. Hi guys! I am looking for new areas to hunt for rocks and fossils around the KC area. I have been to the Blue river, Kansas river, Cedar creek, Tuttle creek, Perry Lake, Mill creek, and abandoned quarry areas. Anyone have any general locations of where I can find some stuff? I am an avid hunter for all sorts of fossils and rocks (rockhounding is my favorite past time)! I've had the most luck at the Kansas river and Perry lake. Some of my finds include cow skulls, cone coral, shells, agates, vertebrae, and a bunch of druzy quartz geodes and chalcedony. I ha

    Plant or?

    I found this on my place which makes no sense. I'm on a whitewater mountain river with gravel, rocks, boulders (granite). Most non-granite rock comes down from above and it's worn. This doesn't appear to be river-tumbled. The thing in it caught my eye and reminds me of wood but I'm not sure. Any ideas?

    Need help settling a fossil debate

    Hi everyone, So, a friend of mine and I are having a debate. He says that the fossils that my rabbit found are actually not fossils, but something else. I am skeptical myself, because of some of the properties of the fossils. Attached are pictures. The first one looks like a bone encased in rock. However, the rock can be attracted by a magnet. The suspected bone in the rock is not attracted by the magnet, though. Odd. It’s also breakable, this happened on accident. If it was metal, it would not break. The second picture looks like petrified wood,
  22. Hello. I have opalized wood for trading. Age - Paleogene. There are Teredo mollusc passages ranging in size from 6 to 10 mm, filled with cemented opal sand, less often with chalcedony. Insect coprolites are also found. There is a sample of a solid section with annual rings (ground, but not polished). If you are interested in such samples, please do not hesitate and contact us in a personal. Have a nice day.
  23. So, I was hanging fossils on my wall. I’ll post a picture of that later. I happened to grab a piece of petrified wood, when I noticed something I didn’t notice before. There were tunnels inside the petrified wood. One tunnel goes clear to the other side of the wood. You can see through it. That is the first discovery. Not sure if that’s caused by a prehistoric tree parasite or something else. Second discovery, on September 11, 2020, I discovered a large piece of Coprolite in Kemmerer Wyoming. Not sure if I spelled that correctly. Many people here and at the quarry said

    Possible petrified wood?

    Hello we have had tremendous amounts of rain where I am, causing the rivers to run wild Andalusia areas to flood. now that it has subsided, I like to go and look for unique things I’m the rivers (gold too ) ove always collected things because they look different or they have a beauty about them. a lot of the hillside along the river has been exposed and there we’re aloe of interesting things around. If I had stayed any longer though I’d have been burnt to a crisp. could anyone shed light on what these could be? I could only come up with possible petrified
  25. Today, something really strange happened. I happen to be carrying a piece of petrified wood, when the wood slipped out of my hands and dropped and broke. When I looked at the pieces, picking them up, I found one piece that had a large crystal structure. I wasn’t sure what it was. I decided to do a test to see if it was Amber. I’m pretty sure that Amber floats when put in water, but I’m not sure. I could be wrong. To my surprise, a lot of stuff was floating in my bowl of water. After looking at the pieces of the crystal structure under magnifier, I think I discovered tha
