  1. I'll be serious with my comment because I'm going to give you credit for knowing if it was spray paint or not. I'm sorry i can't help you id the rock as I haven't the expertise and knowledge of those whom so far have kindly responded so kindly :~{{
  2. Not sure if its granite but i love the red and green ones. Nice texture and turn out smooth. Does it have the sparkly veins in it?
  3. Curious if anyone has a clue where the blue comes from in this rock? Is it a mineral by itself? I'm not finding any info from MGS, no response from the Geological Society of MN Found in north central Minnesota. I appreciate any ideas and people's time on this. Thanks
  4. If so, it would be nice if i could find some. But in all my years i have nothing like that and there's a bit of sedimentary where i live too.
  5. So where is that moderator person now to referee this one? When Bedrock Bob and stillweaver had a friendly banter on my post he swooped down faster than an owl to a rabbit to blow the timeout whistle!
  6. That is so cool. I think I'd be out in the field most of the time. Have a hard time tearing myself away when on the search for rocks!
  7. Below I added pictures I used for reference. (Info for the last 2 pics): Here is another brachiopod from various sidea. This is from the Cretaceous Period, about 130 million years old. It is from the Isle of Wight, Lower Greensand. It is a Sellithyris. Size: 32mm
  8. We have very similar Marine fossils here in MN south of the divide, but more often in sandstone or limestone. When you say hole, do you mean the round circle? The "sticking up" circle my friend may be a ischadite (sponge) fossil. Quartz will preserve the bivalve shells well & that's a lucky find since they're delicate. You may have brachiopod fossils as well, the two can look similar at first, to me anyway. I'm no expert, just an avid collector. They're very nice! You must have some fertile fields!
  9. Hello, I'm curious if this is a Brachiopod fossil? One that is in relatively good shape? Found near Wyoming/North Branch, Minnesota to the best of my recollection. I see a lot of brachiopods in my rocks but they've all been rather mashed up by the lively geological history. I've looked up some online photos and thought it resembled Strophomenida or Orthida but no reference to them on the Minnesota Fossils at a Glance from tht UOM. I don't know if region matters either since it sounds like they were quite prolific. Thank you!!
  10. Would you be able to post pictures of it post - polish? I have some look just like it, same description. Do they have a sparkly sheen to them in good lighting? I'm curious to know what they turn out like. Thanks!
  11. Do they seem to be man-made carvings/markings? Or more like a fossil? Very neat in any case. Someday I hope to be more helpful!!
  12. Just to say that's an incredible find! It's lovely. Happiness!!
  13. Happy birthday to you!

  14. Happy Birthday!!

  15. Hi. I have a few of what my friend said are red jasper. Look just like the red/gray one you have above. Found in Taylor's Falls Minnesota. Was that also found in Michigan? Just curious. Thank you!
