Plant Fossil Wood

Wood or rock?

This fossil looks like wood and is identified as such – but is it? Chert (a rock) can sometimes be worn in such a way that it looks very like wood. Without any location detail, it’s hard to say more, showing how important it is to record where fossils are found. (We have idntified this as Lower Cretaceous so that it appears on the database).
