  1. 🔎 UNIDENTIFIED Unknown mineral inside concretion

    Hi. I Found this mineral inside of a concretion. The minerals that I typically find inside the concretions local to my area are calcite and Aragonite. This is the only one I have ever opened that looks like this. Any ideas? Thank you. Location: Orange County, California
  2. Fossilised heart ( human???)

    I found what looks to be a petrified and agatized human heart. The anatomy is all correct and it’s the size of my fist like a human heart should be. I thought I was digging up petrified wood but it turned out to be a ton of fossils. I think this heart looking one is the most significant though.
  3. 🔎 UNIDENTIFIED Dinosaur Bones?!

    Just purchased a couple petrified/fossil jaw bones and one very ominous (leg?) bone from an older lady who inherited these from her grandfather when he died. She also had a gigantic leg bone taller than her but sadly would not part ways with it. Trying to identify what animals these belonged to...

  8. Southern Illinois Fossils (Acrhimedes Screws (Bryozoan) and death plates)!

    Did a quick 30 minute stop to a road cut off off route 146. No tools, just what had naturally eroded. Would be well worth spending more time but I got what I could carry and kept driving. https://www.flickr.com/photos/187848062@N04/albums/72157715622673888

  10. Teeth? Rocks?

    These were found in Coastal North Carolina. They are shaped like teeth, but dark brown in appearance. Are they rocks? Are they teeth? If so, what type of animal? Time period? Any ideas? I apologize for the wonky orientation of the pictures. Thanks for your input.

  13. Tooth or Claw

    I'm back out hunting at the first spot. I found a piece of rock that has a darker center. And it's got fossils in it. I am almost positive that it looks like a tooth or a claw in this rock. Then there is another one with just the tip showing.

  19. Is this a fossilized tooth?
