Since moving to Colorado I've been collecting chunks of rocks that look like petrified wood.
The first I actually found in my backyard while we were digging around a sprinkler head - it is 6 inches long. In the past week or so I've found a couple more smaller pieces while trail hiking with the dog. They are 2-4 inches long.
Today while out with puppers I found a 9 pound chunk and brought it home Before I go crazy collecting more of this stuff, can anyone here help me verify that my nifty rock collection is really petrified wood? Does it have any value?
Here's today's haul ...
And here's the smaller pieces I found previously ... one of the small pieces has a neat area that looks like fossilized crystalized crackled sap.
Thanks for the help!
