You have no idea what you're talking about :old: That's Golden Blurstone :4chsmu1:

It's a blurstone :brows:, sorry I could resist, the photo is too blurry for me to try and attempt an ID, especially since I'm only a novice at IDing rocks.

You're all wrong. :nono:

It's a "Fuzz Fossil".

Fossilized lower leg bone of a sheep

with bits of wool still attached. :4chsmu1:

* petrified wood w/calsite? :idunno:

Almost opalized? :89:

The photo taken at the "end", sure looks like it may almost be opalized.

Looks like the end of a stick.

Can ya see any "rings"?

Thank's Haderly! I'll save it. It does look kinda like a piece of a branch.

Well I will say this, it's as smooth as a babies butt. The only petrified wood I seen in Az looked rough to me. I guess pea gravel could be deformed too, like everything else. Weird.

AaaaHaaaaaaa!!!!! Found a picture of some petrified wood from I forget what nation, but not in the USA.

I'm guessing the little rock I found was sap from the center of tree. Interesting.. :yesss:

I agree with Weaver Hillbilly. I does not look like the brecciated lavender Blurstone, or the druzy Blurstone.

It's absolutely the Golden variety.

Hey that's cool Johnno. That's from the heart too. Maybe some petrified wood got into a rock crusher. I wonder what happened to the rest of it... :brows: That full size piece i seen on craigslist. It was about 1 1/2-2 feet long and they were asking $675.00 for it if I remember correctly. So the sap is amber...hmmm.. :idunno:
