This Is A Bone For Me But It Sounds Like A Stone And Burned In The Flame? Is Strange

i am new to this and do not know about fossils, I found this bone, in the excavation of the contrucccion of my house. I do not know what to say.

I broke because I put in my back pocket and sat without remembering that I had there, the clicking sound like stone?

I read in this forum that one person lights a match to identify if a fossil or not, I did and started to burn? not smell like burnt bone, rather they burn like sugar before getting candy? if this was a fossil, should not burn it, because there is no carbon to burn? or if it burns?

one more thing the supposed bone has bonded fibers and fabric, so I think is new, but how recent?

if I'm building on an old cemetery immediately stopped construction and go somewhere else?

many questions ... but what I know is that this bone be that I found?

Sorry, but the photos are too dark and blurry for me to make any kind of a guess.

Any chance of better pictures?

This is not a bone.

There appears to be some thread wrapped around it; was this there when you found it? I suspect it is a partly melted 'something' left from human activity.

Yes, there were yesterday that I found it, seeing as it seems fabric bonded with tar or some kind of black glue ... and if you approach the fire begins to melt.


I set up to take a photo and note markings carved into the bone ... if this is not a bone. that is what you think it might be?

It is something that melted from heat.

Thanks for your help, now that you mention it looks like a tree resin :blink: , by the way it burns ...I will not throw away because it is the first thing that I find strange is the beginning of my search. ^_^


I will not stop collecting strange stones, for me, perhaps even get to find a fossil, thanks for your help, best regards :fistbump:

UPDATE: someone suggested I might be a type of resin COPAL worn by Mayan Indians in their ceremonies, makes sense, but here is an area not considered with indigenous Mayan settlements, that weird ... I do not know if I should continue to post here since apparently has nothing to do with fossils? any help?

The color seems to be opaque white, where I expect copal to be translucent yellow...

Did it smell like pine resin when you burned it?
