  1. I don't think it's a fossil. It looks more like part of an old statue that was buried, covered and over time and some type of mineralization growth occured on the tips. There's another possiblity but depends on where it was found. If that's where it came from, the correct term to use would be petrification, not fossilization. Where did it come from?
  2. Can you give us a general idea where it was found?
  3. Happy Birthday. Have a good one.
  4. I think the weight is a little too light for it to be a meteorite so I'm leaning towards basalt. The only way you'll know for sure is to knock a chip off and examine the. interior.
  5. Is a strong magnet attracted to it? Looks interesting.
  6. I found this on Mindat. https://www.mindat.org/loc-219438.html Not much help for you but it gives us an idea of what you're looking for. I'm sure there's a local rock club or university with a geology dept that can provide you with more information. I found this club in Vermont. Someone should be able to help you. http://www.burlingtongemandmineralclub.org/contact-us.html
  7. I assume you mean fairy stones. They can be found in Virginia and you can hunt them in a state park or on private property. Lots of information in this link. https://www.dcr.virginia.gov/state-parks/blog/legend-of-the-fairy-stone
  8. You could contact a local rock club for information. Or if you already know where they're found, simply go to the landowners and ask for permission.
  9. I received my booster shot of Pfizer on Monday. Had some soreness in my arm and a slight fever...both of which have disappeared this morning. Hopefully things will get back to normal in the next few months.
  10. Dr Cole is another right wing kook who has had some videos banned on youtube for misinformation. He's a board certified dermatopathologist and not one who specializes in infectious diseases. Hardly someone with reliable information.
  11. How many people will die if they don't take the vaccine?
  12. Nope. Looks like either slag of some type or volcanic basalt. Most likely slag.
  13. If that were a meteorite, and you found it in salt water, it would be all rusted if not totally disintegrated. Whatever it is... it's not iron which is what most meteorites contain. Probably lead like Bob stated.
  14. We'd like to see some photos of your meteorite purchase so post them if you can.
  15. I remember this article as well. They had a couple rows of fulgurites which he had collected over the years. I've been aware of what they are but never had an opportunity to hunt them since I wasn't near any sand dunes. Seems like New Mexico would be a good place to find them.
  16. Dan, May I ask what you and the kids are using? Are you hunting in all metal mode or using discrimination? Lots of things to be found even after all these years. I'm sure there's plenty of nugget specimens to be found as well. Did you ever go back to hunt for more turquoise?
  17. Gee...where have we heard that before???🤔
  18. Wow Dan. Those are some great finds.This will be a big year for you and the kids. Mark my words.
  19. Now I know this topic was an April Fools gag.😏
  20. 😂😂😂. Poor Pygmy.😂😂😂
  21. No offense but it doesn't make any difference what type of camel it was. Their bones just don't grow rings.
  22. I'm sorry. Just not buying it. I don't know of any mammal that has rings in the bone structure. That's just not how bones grow.
  23. I don't remember the color of the buildings but they were on the right hand side of the road before you cross the creek.
  24. It looks more like petrified wood than camel bones. I'd sure like to hear the story. Or is this a belated April Fools Day gotcha joke?😏
