I mention this in regards to some bland looking specimens I have from Nevada. They would not be useful for cabs but I think this silicified wood made for great arrowheads and spearheads. It was not only Chert, Flint and Obsidian that were so used by Native Americans.
This is another large but light colored piece that weighs 3.5 lbs. @4.00 a lb. and slabbing polishing fee. Medium flat rate box shipping. 12.95
This is another large but dark piece that weighs 3.5 lbs. @4.00 a lb. and slabbing polishing fee. Medium flat rate box shipping. 12.95
Another use would be to drill into the top and use them as a stand for something else, even another rock. A interesting piece of driftwood perhaps. A stiff copper wire could support another rock above.

The second was a huge chunk of polished wood weighing in at 5.5 lbs. Love the picture with the camera strap! This guy is nicely polished and would go for $22.95. Medium flat rate box shipping needed.
Petrified Wood-Literally means “wood turned into stone”) is the name given to a special type of fossilized remains of terrestrial vegetation. Limb Casts are another such creation. All the organic materials have been replaced with minerals mostly silicates, such as quartz or agate, while retaining the original structure of the stem tissue.
