Petrified Wood - Palm Vs. Snakewood


Recommended Posts

Here are 3 small pieces I recently found. I believe the first one is palm. The other two may be snakewood. I hope the pictures are detailed enough to show the cell structure.

The first one is definitely Palm. The last one is definitely Not snakewood, but rather a conifer I believe.

I'm 90% sure the second one is not snakewood, but if it is, the cell structure is very poorly preserved and hard to make out. I'd have to see it in person to know 100% (can you show the other side of the straws?)
