  • Fossilize Bone?

    Creek find in Southeast Texas about half a mile from a Indian camp site. Did the lick test and it has some stick to it. If it is bone any thoughts on what from?

      Welcome to the forum.

      Unfortunately the pictures can't be enlarged enough to confirm bone structure, but that is what it looks like. Also, if it is bone, there aren't really any diagnostic features remaining to enable it to be identified.
      I keep six honest serving-men (they taught me all I knew); Their names are What and Why and When and How and Where and Who.

        Roger has got it pegged. If it is bony material at all, it may be the marrow and outer bone structure eroded away.
        It is a "Rock" when it's on the ground.
        It is a "Specimen" when picked up and taken home.
