For jewelry or as individual rocks, petrified wood is one of my favorites. This is but a small display of what I have. Sizes, prices and measurements will follow. I must also mention that some is not that attractive, but perhaps were useful.

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.

Petrified wood is very heavy so if you buy less than a pound you may only get one large piece.The photo is intended to be an example. If you give me a color range and usage intention I will do my best to provide the rock. Specimen, Cabachon (slab) material, Suiseki. or even for aquarium use? 4.00 a lb. Shipping <1 l.b. 5.95 and 12.95 and 17.95 for flat rate boxes that can hold  10 to 25 lbs.

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.
