Does anyone know of any good places to get pretrified wood.

Thanks
Check with your local landscape material suppliers. If petrified wood is available in your area for a reasonable price then they will probably carry it. Otherwise your best choice might be to travel for it, because prices at aquarium or rock&mineral shops are pretty high.

You can also search online for petrified wood collecting sites near you. A lot of rock collectors and especially rockhound clubs are posting directions to known collecting localities.

If you're planning a vacation then you might consider swinging through the southwest US. Petrified wood is a fairly common stone along I-40 near the Arizona-New Mexico line -- an area that includes Petrified Forest National Park. Don't even think about picking something up at the Park. There are shops in all nearby communities and along the roadsides that sell petrified wood. If you're adventuresome there are also a lot of collecting locales.

I was going to get some on eBay--there's a lot of good petrified wood there. Remove the search term "polish" so you don't get "finished" pieces.
