  1. Honestly, I’m thinking crinoid stem pieces. I’ve zoomed in on the holes.
  2. Looking at those holes makes me think you may have a mold fossil. That happens when an organism dies and is buried. The organism decomposes and leaves behind a hole in the shape of its body.
  3. I think it probably is coral. I can’t Norris down the species but someone else here might be able to. As to your comment about Louisiana being under an oven, the entire south was at one point, which is what made the land so fertile.
  4. Yeah, it appears the user and their comments are all gone. There are a few quotes still around, but anything posted directly by the user went poof.
  5. Looks similar to chrysanthemum stone, but I can’t say for certain what it is.
  6. It stinks huh? I’m wondering if you got a piece of bog iron, and the smell is what’s leftover from the fen.
  7. Tough to say. Minerals are difficult to ID from a photo alone, rocks doubly so.
  8. Looks like a rock, which is composed of multiple minerals.
  9. Appears to be a sandstone concretion fragment.
  10. Think the insurance company tried to keep the meteorite?
  11. Is it purple or is that just the lighting?
  12. It might be a broken septarian nodule. It’s possible a septarian formed and was eroded out of where it formed, then ended up in a stream bed or other placer deposit where it became part of a conglomerate. At some point It would have eroded out again and broke, exposing the softer calcite lining the center, which would have then eroded quickly. The bits on the inside would be the only remnants of what was once the interior. I think it’s long shot, but it’s possible. I think it’s pretty likely that it was once a concretion of some type, but not necessarily a septarian.
  13. It appears to be a very heavily eroded agate.
  14. Looks more like mineral encrusted twigs to me, but I’m no fulgurite expert so don’t take my word for it.
  15. Appears to be amygdaloidal basalt.
  16. Next weekend I’ll be participating in the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride. It is a men’s health fundraiser, raising funds mainly for testicular cancer and mental health research. I know it’s been a tough year+ for all of us, and many of you are not in a position to donate. I’m okay with that sand I get it. If, however, you are wiling and able to sponsor me, you can do so here. https://gfolk.me/PhilBeebe321035
  17. That thing is huge. I hope its reentry dumps it in an ocean.
  18. That certainly appears to be mica schist. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schist
  19. Can’t see the photos, but your description sounds like schist.
  20. I’m not a meteorite guy. Looks like a terrestrial piece of basalt or basanite to me.
