Rock hunters refer to "petrified" wood as "fossil" wood. They're the experts, so I guess the rest of us just have to accept that. These two pieces came from creeks right here in Vicksburg. The darker one (almost black) is apparently the rarer of the two, though the lighter piece exhibits some quartz. I've never hunted rocks, though I'd be surprised if the hobby couldn't dominate your life as much as any other. But rock hunting? That's one topic I didn't cover in my book on treasure hunting.
