Found this larger chunk of rock (too hard to be modern charcoal) while sifting for microfossils. It has a metallic look to it and is fairly brittle. It was found on bradford beach on Lake Michigan and was likely eroded out of the mid Devonian Milwaukee formation which is known for its coalified trees and giant fungi. this looks like a lot of coalified wood I’ve seen pictures of, but I’m pretty new when it comes to plant fossils so this might just be mineral. Thanks!

It was found among a large number of petrified wood and coal fragments. The 2 rocks are very different, the dark one seems to come from a coal shoal, the light one seems to come . I do not have the expertise to determine if these are leaves or feathers.
The new Eagle Ford exposure in the creek we've been hunting is littered with various stages of petrified and coalified wood in the marl, Dale found a good size limb and chopped out some chunks which contained fossils. This is new to me never seen fossils in wood before, Dale has bigger pieces with bigger fossils and thinks thier some kind of boring clam like Toredo worm, but these look nothing like those to me and I want more details. These are completely shelled and how can something round and smooth bore? Dale's pieces have ones with 'balls' an inch across. On the side of big piece is 2 ob
Hello, I just joined and am curious about my petrified wood! I live in North Dakota. I have a lot of it over many acres however mine looks different than a lot I look up. It’s more light gray dark gray black and white. Any info would be appreciated.
