Educate Me Please

Welcome to the Forum. :)

Where was this found, and what is the size?

This information can help us to narrow down what aged sediments this was found in, and what the likely candidates are. :)

Also, could you please take shots from different angles for us?

It was found near drumheller alberta. Just curious to know what it's is. Calcium buildup on petrified wood? I don't know looks cool though.

It could be that, I have some pieces from there that are partially replaced or coated in silica (agate), but I'd like to see more pics to be sure, especially straight down on the end of the apparently-cylindrical part?

It reminds me a bit of a calcified algae 'rind' on wood, ala Blue Forest petrified wood from Wyoming.

Whatever it is, it's real pretty!

Thanks for the responses. I found other pieces of wood that look ,well like wood. What makes this look completely different? Is the buildup because it is older or it was faced with different elements? Like I said before I'm a rookie,just find it very interesting.

Very nice, parts appear to be 'opalized'.
