    I found a bunch of petrified wood yesterday and a bunch of red to pink quartz yesterday just driving down a dirt road and stopping at the spots that had a lot of rocks.

    Love pet wood. It never ceases to amaze me that it used to be a living thing. All are simple beautiful. Don't worry about the car noises, quite frankly I didn't even hear them til you mentioned them. Lol. I get into rock hounding, I tune out everything. Just like shrooming. Lol.

    Nice! Btw, Black Diamond regional preserve in Antioch, CA has many great examples of petrified wood laying around in these massive piles of coal tailings . Might be close enough to be worth a video on it. The specimens are older than those at Calistoga by about 30 million years, and are all that remains of what used to be a coastal estuary before the creation of Mt Diablo and the foothills

    Such gorgeous petrified wood. Could you use some of them for bases to mount crystals on? Just an idea. Keep the videos coming. Loving going along with you.

    I think the petrified wood is beautiful as well. Awesome rock hunt! I have a rounded piece, but doubted if it was petrified wood or not. After watching this, I’m certain it really is. ☺️

    I love watching your pet wood videos, it's always awesome to watch. I loved it when you used to go with your bucket with water in it, you really have beautiful stones there, even opals. That piece of pet wood with blue opal in it. That would make some beautiful jewelry. Well Nathan, I really hope you have a great day.

    You missed that big gold nugget in the water there! HaHa! Awesome finds this time out. What about making wind chimes using the longer diff size thin pieces? A petrified wood wind chime could be a good conversation piece too.

    They’re nice for decorating miniature sand zen gardens, and the smaller pieces would make nice pendants.

    I hope you aren't actually in a National Park.. they'll put you under the jail for collecting petrified wood.
    I'm sure you know this, but others may not.

    Nate, you need some water shoes in the truck. I hope you had your bucket or a bag at least, if not those pockets of yours are FULL! Don't forget the piece of chalcedony you left at the beginning and what about the log coming out of the bank? Did you ever try to dig it out? I might have missed that part or you got so excited you forgot why you went over there. I think we're heading down that way now. I sure hope so. WOW, now I see it. Wonderful piece of petrified wood! Specimen piece for certain! Loving it! Great finds as usual, Nate. Oh and Nate, please DON't cut your specimen piece, please. 😉😊😩☺️

    Ughhhhh! I'd do anything to come there! 😮😮😮 I'm in the worst state for my passion Ohio.. but with the glaciers having carved out the valley I live in I feel like it's just never been discovered as an incredible rock hounding area because I find insanely beautiful stones every day the problem is I can't identify alot of them I have to travel west someday I couldn't imagine the pure excitement you probably experience every time you go out! Happy hunting!! I enjoyed tagging along!

    Yep, I'm having fun, return and go further, go, go, go, this is the closest I get to hounding, through others eyes and camera.
    There are so many variations of petrified wood , some don't even look like wood, totally different with no grain structure left after mineral replacement, you are finding some really nice examples out there, the biggest one is specimen quality with such distinctive layers, don't cut it, no, no, no, never.
    One thing you could make is wind chimes, use chemical metal on the top for the string so you don't need to drill.

    Can you make it into beads?

  • 12461 blowingleaves
    12461 blowingleaves 3 months ago +1

    If you can carve it like wood then why not carve it into small animals....maybe animals from that time period....dinosaurs? winged things? bugs? trees?

    I've been watching your videos for just a short time and enjoy your enthusiasm, respect, and knowledge of whatever your quest involves. The close ups of your finds are fantastic. Your explorations with your daughter are wonderful and educational. Thank you for sharing these great times with us. The petrified wood is amazing!

    It's nice to hear that you are taking a simpler approach to things.
    Life is definitely full of things that can urge us to the more complicated side.
    I've been working on simplifying my life this month as well.
    Thank you for continuing to share with us!

      @Rebecca Major, your welcome... trying to do my part. I was surprised at the volume of debris. I'm making a sorter for my car!
      I will be taking the metal to be recycled.
      In my town we have places that buy scrap for recycling, but it needs to be separated by type.

      P.s. I probably need not mention that I am envious...
      However I am grateful that you are blessed with the opportunity to find such beautiful things.
      I went yesterday to a no hunting reserve area and literally pulled 1/2 of a 2 liter juice bottle full of projectile brass and a half of a 16 oz bottle of lead tips..
      Guess they just target practice at that location!

    I realize this is not the subject of this video but have you used your mineral/gem testers yet? If you have can you please put the title and number here so I can watch? I am dying to see how it works. Thanks in advance.

    I think you either born a rock hunter or you're not. I definitely have been looking down at the rocks my whole life too. I've collected from all the states I've lived in, Colo., New Mexico too. Oh! and Hi from So. Calif.

    Table tops, walking sticks, jewelry boxes, doors, banisters. I could go on.
