I've held wood and also held petrified wood... I also have put the petrified floorboard under a microscope and it has the same characteristics as petrified wood such as the crystallization and the fact that the nail never rusted.  I feel that this is genuine and believe you should take a second look. I may not be a sertified geologist but in do know thing or two about petrified wood.
