Unknown Fossil? I Think :)

I really felt like this was something other than a rock. I thought it was a tooth but I can't find any matches so far. It weighs about 4.5 lbs. My kids are making fun of me! Help momma out :)

It isn't a tooth, or part of any vertebrate I've ever seen. I think it is just an interestingly worn rock.

The plural of "anecdote" is not "evidence".

I appreciate your thought...I think you are right! Caught my eye and couldn't leave it there.

You are welcome and like I said I may be wrong. I am still a beginner myself but have found quite a few pieces of chert and flint that are pretty deceiving! Cracks, grooves and some large pieces that are rather suspiciously shaped... lol :) Looking forward to seeing what else you find! With every post you learn a little bit more. :)

Hi, and welcome to the forum. I was collecting in your area 2 weekends ago south of you on rt1. We found 3 enrolled trilobites on the big hill cut a couple miles north of St.Leon. You should try it if you haven't already.

I'm going with the others and say it an interesting , weathered rock.

I know exactly where you were. I actually grew up in the Cedar Grove area. We called the area you were in south gate. Awesome finds!

Isn't it neat? I also was wondering if it was a tool used by the Hopewell which we learned lived in my area when some artifacts were discorved about 3 or 4 years ago. A girl can dream!

I don't think it's a tool unless the Hopewell threw it at somebody. :D
