Ever tried shining an ultraviolet light on your fossils? About 60% of fossil shells fluoresce. I discovered one morning as I was admiring my fossil shells this way, that my petrified wood seems to match those statistics.  Below you can see what they look like under visible light.

Heather,

I appreciate your impressive skills with a camera, and also the willingness to share the beauty of your fossil collection.

For the ones you identify as Cypress,  how can you differentiate?
