Large fossil "petrified" wood

Recommended Posts

And lastly the large, 13lb section of wood, found not associated with any layers- found in the little blue river of Kansas City last week. very dense for its size. I understand this may not be speciated but pretty none-the-less! And not to stri the pot, but I've read some articles stating that mineralization can happen very fast, and some "petrified wood" could only be a hundred years old or less. I would presume there are so many factors that enter into mineralization of wood that only some techniques and carbon dating could help define age? Thanks for looking!   Bone

Hmmm- ya know, I can't see the fine mineralization that I do with my other "woods"-so yes maybe it isn't, but then, what is it?........ :) Thanks!   Bone

That bottom photo gives me the same sensation as looking for trout laying in a stream bed.
