Is this petrified wood?

Recommended Posts

No. It doesn't. All petrified wood has been agatized or silicafied. Not sure what you have but it doesn't look petrified to me. May I ask where you are located and are there any petrified wood localities in your area?

Give the rock a good bath and scrubbing  in baking soda water.  This will help remove the clays.  I would give the sample a few days soaking in iron out solution as well.  Use a plastic scrub brush then genitally use a brass brush.  It should be easier to see what it is made of once clean.  Post some photos of the cleaned rock.
