Welcome to The Fossil Forum.

 

Are the photos from 2 different rocks?

 

In the first photo, send us photos of the parts at the top and the bottom (by the ruler), looking end on. What I see now looks more like a flow banded volcanic rock such as rhyolite. The bands are wavey and are irregular in width. Vugs are present which are either bubbles or where a crystal fell out during erosion.

 

Additional more clearly focused photos will help us decide whether this is wood or not.

Thank you all for the replies. All the photos are the same rock. Based on the first photo from the original post, the second is of the top side (non-ruler side).

 

This additional is of the right side based on the first. Hope that helps

Welcome to TFF!

I agree with a banded rhyolite, not petrified wood.
