Help us solve this mystery! Randolf commented in the thread below that he has an unidentified bone and doesn’t know what it is from. Below is that conversation:
Randolf: on a side note, i have a couple of peremineralized fossils. one is of a snail i found up in the little belt mountains in boy scouts camping. i looked down at the ground and thought cool a snail, but it is stone. also i found in a pile of rocks left in my yard when i bought the place the end of a limb bone of something it too is now is stone. i don’t know anyone who is interested in this sort of thing and after we are gone they will end up in the trash. i think they are effing cool and it depresses the crap out of me that i have to give them up. but i would rather they end up in someones collection or museum to be saved for posterity. any suggestions?
JR Bentley: Wow… “Limb Bone” has me intrigued Randolf. Is it big enough to be Human? You could go and have it looked at but if it turns out to be human you would have to be concerned for it “disappearing” or the “expert” just telling you it has no significance at all just to debunk your find.. I’m sure Roberto can tell you how that happens to work out.
Randolf: YES!! it could be human i could take a pic and send it to you. maybe leg, seems a little big for an arm but i am no expert. it is broken and only about 2 inches long, it is the end where a joint meets the cartilage
At this point I asked Randolf to send me some pics of his find (click on each pick to enlarge)………..
Thank you Randolf for the pics and now hopefully we can help you identify it.
