I believe it to be ironstone but would love more information on it. Very new to this. Found in rural Alabama while picking up rocks to skip in the pond. Look like it made its way to the surface by a nearby root system from a neighboring tree!

There's a chance that it may have been wood. It's not preserved well enough to be certain of it though.

4th photo looks like Calamites to me. I believe these can be found in Alabama in coal areas. Others with local expertise should confirm.

The fourth photo makes me thinks Calamites as well.





Fossil hunting is easy -- they don't run away when you shoot at them!
