|Comment||Thank you for the fast response. I understand that time and conditions are required for petrification. What continues to throw me is that looking at the broken end their are pinpoints of quartz (light) and is definitely brown and the weight says stone. I know is shouldn't be . . . but it sure seems to be man made, stone and looks like wood.|
