    Coalified wood?

    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!
  2. Hello! Newbie here with a love for fossils. I have a very small collection and only casually hunt for them. Anyways, I was on a trip to Forest County, Pennsylvania this past weekend. I was cruising a creek channel looking for trout in the Allegheny NF when this caught my eye. My gut feeling was this looks like a piece of wood, but it's very dense, it does feel heavy like a piece of stone. There's a lot of sandstone in this creek valley, but this feels much heavier than that. Bark-like striations and some is flaking off like a sedimentary or mica flavor of rock. It's flat on one side with a sma

    Pet Wood

    From the album: Plantae

    7x6x2cm. From the petrified forest by Virgin, Washington County, Utah, USA. Chinle Formation, Late Triassic. Thanks to my Secret Santa Crusty Crab.
  4. I got out again to gather a few small specimens of pet wood. Found in the Triassic of the Newark supergroup deposits in southeastern Pennsylvania.
  5. A projection of rain in the forecast for Saturday caused me to change my plans at the last minute and venture a little further west than I had initially planned and hoped to go. Since I had not yet visited Whiskey Bridge since moving to Texas at the beginning of September I decided that it posed as a nice alternative, especially when trying to decide on Friday night where to go the following morning. Plus this way I could also collect some petrified wood in College Station. This petrified wood is from the Late Middle Eocene Yegua Formation and is absolutely abundant in the Bryan-College Statio

    Colorful Petrified Wood

    This past Saturday I joined other members of the DVPS to collect pieces of petrified wood in a farm field near Odessa, DE. It was a lot of fun! Last night I finished cleaning off the last of the shards of wood that I found and I was struck by this piece. The color on it is very different from the cream and red color of the other pieces, which you can see on the reverse side of this piece. This one has a strange bluish spot on one side of it. It almost reminds me of the agatized coral that people collect on the Withlacoochee River in Georgia. I was wondering if anyone knew what this spot is. Is
  7. This display contains 100+ specimens of the best petrified wood that I found, during more than a decade of fossil-hunting, in the Triassic age Newark Basin of southeastern Pennsylvania. The material is scarce. I have plenty more smaller pieces. The shelves dimensions are 6 feet x 5 feet x 1 foot.
  8. Hey guys I have found an enormous amount of beautiful petrified wood, specifically palm on the catahoula formation in East Texas, which I (think) is Eocene. But I'm wondering if there is more diversity available. I've heard that wood and bones fossilize differently, so is it possible to find bones on the catahoula formation as well? I've never heard of such a thing but I would certainly hope it's possible. Let me know what you think. - Jared

    Help with i.d.!

    Hello, I was wondering if I could get some help in identifying this petrified wood, if possible? Where: Saddle Mountain, Washington State Size: 3.81 cm at the widest Age: Miocene, approx 14-15,000,000 yoa I understand that the majority of the wood there is Taxodioxylon sp., but this looks different than the pics I've seen of that. Any thoughts?
  10. I dont remember exactly when in my life but at one point I saw my first petrified wood and thought that's amazing. Well many years have come and gone and have seen lots of shops selling wood at what seems over expensive and not interested prices for tiny pieces. But then finally while looking to buy an item from someone they randomly have this piece of petrified wood and now I have something that filled that history in my life. Now the better question is what to do with it? Raw to me looks amazing but the thought in the back of my head is what if I polish it? Not really sure what I want to

    Small what ever?

    Found in the drive west of Houston Texas, possibly from a load of gravel from the Brazos river is this a tiny bone fragment or a worn pebble of pet wood of some kind?

    Help needed

    I have spotted some woodworm on my prized piece of petrified wood . Can I treat if with this . I wood be gutted to lose this specimen. Thanks Bobby
  14. Howdy! Just about every piece of the metric tons I've collected have, pretty much, fits into a neat category of: broken and irregular end, smooth surfaces, weathered and jagged, or tumbled and rounded. But I found something a couple of days ago that I've never seen before and rather than trying to settle on one wild hypothesis, I thought I'd ask the experts! This piece was found near a body of water in Brazos County, TX in the Yegua. It looks as if it would have been a general cube shape, except for one corner that's missing. I'm also puzzled due to the direction of the grain.

    I bought some petrified wood on online, and in the pictures the wood was wet to make it look a lot better. My question is is it okay to coat it with lacquer so it keeps that really nice look?
  16. I may have posted some of these before but never got answers, and now it's been a while and probably the pics were not very good anyway, so am trying again. They're still not very good, even tho' taken in the sunlight. I don't know what to do about that. Anyway, we acquired these thru old rockhounds years ago and either they or we failed to record the info, and now it's lost. Some of it is nice stuff at least from a lapidary or display-piece standpoint, but would be nice if someone recognized them and could tell me where they likely came from. All I am willing to bet on is Western states
  17. finally got out recently and hit a hotspot in the Triassic of S.E. Pennsylvania, the Newark Supergroup. scored these two pet wood pieces with nice grain, each about 10 inches length (scale bar is 4 inches). plus several more smaller pieces.
  18. Recently I had a pretty decent day hunting the scarce petrified wood in the Triassic (Newark supergroup) of southeastern Pennsylvania. The largest piece in the photo weighs 13.5 lbs (6.1 kilos). It was the first specimen found in the first 5 minutes of the hunt, so I was hoping a good day would follow. And more nice wood did follow that first one. As usual, most pieces have a brownish hue, and the silica sparkles a bit. No agatized wood. Scale bar at photo bottom is 4 inches (10.16 cm).
  19. I found another new site for Triassic petrified wood in Pennsylvania. I am sure this location has never been hunted. The following specimens are very similar to what I've found elsewhere in PA Triassic. Scale bar is 4 inches (10+ cm).
  20. I found more petrified (silicified) wood at a new site in the Triassic Newark Supergroup of S.E. Pennsylvania. Almost all specimens show good grain patterns and are a nice dark chocolate color. Yummy. Attached is a photo of the larger specimens that I collected. The scale bar is 4 inches. (I have posted other similar pet wood photos in previous topics.)
