    Question Fossil / Agate ID Very strange petrified fossils? Bone?

    These were found 30 miles South-East of Prescott, AZ. The Locality is Know for Early Neolithic Mammalian fossils. I didn't make it down to the valley where they were supposed to be, although I started picking up scattered agates and chalcedony. Upon arriving home I lightly cleaned and cut some of my finds. Little did I know, all my finds seemed to be fossils 3-5lbs. The pictures I posted are of 2 clear/amber with white inclusions...found separately. Although they seem to fit together quite well. 4" x 2'' when connected approx weight 2oz- 3oz. I'm lost...and have been reaching these and others I found for months. It appears bone was petrified but looks like some anomaly that its so distinct and the inclusions are white/tan which I Imagine are inorganic and have been replaced with minerals. Which even protrude out of the chalcedony in several areas.

    Anyone have any clue what this is?

    I think your first impression was correct...chalcedony. I see zero evidence of former life. Nice finds, regardless!


    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    The Bald Eagle photo...he/she posed for me, gave me it's best American look. I felt privileged to get the shot.
