There are whole trees with branches and thorns petrified all over the northern part of New Mexico. The stone yard in Sants Fe has big logs of agatized wood for landscape stones. Most will show some play of color in places. Much is opalized and soft.

The little pieces in tertiary gravel are often filled with colors....all the poor soft material has been weathered away.

Just outside of Hatch there arre lots of opalized mesquite bushes. I have one with a fork and a big thorn. It would make a perfect stone slingshot....
