Easier to point out what it's not.
not amethyst, amazonite, aquamarine, citrine or rose quartz.

One of my most prized possessions is a large slice of petrified wood given to me by Si and Ann Frazier. But it is not a Gem, it is a fossil specimen.

That being said, you are posting a lot of pictures of things which are not gems, asking for identification.
These items do not belong in the CSI Section.
It is my fault for not moving these posts to the Fossils, Minerals & Curiosities sections.

thanks for your help, but why can people just make normal comments, we can not all be experts of gem stones, l just startet 6 mds. ago, we all have to start one place right. give people a chance to learn about this very big topic....dont atack the new members with bad comment, l have seen it before on your web side...and l dont like it, its disrespektfull to other people...l dont know if there are some grumpy old menn with personel problems here.

Petrified wood is fossilized wood with the mineral composition of jasper, chalcedony and, less frequently, opal; it consists of silicon dioxide only.

so even when the organic matierial is replact of the mineral composition of jasper is not a real gem stone. is that correct understud of me....but you are right there are some wery nice pices of the wood, and some with no color like this one l have, see pic.

Have l nice day, here in manila the pope left after 5 days visit, and all is back to normal. Morning 9 aclock....
