EGG400b  This is a pretty glass Phosphorescence egg.  It is a pale green color in normal light and shows a brighter green in the dark.  Phosphorescence material glows in the dark without using ultraviolet light. Typically, the glowing slowly fades out within minutes or up to a few hours.  This very cool egg measures approximately 1 3/4" tall x nearly 1 3/8" in diameter and has an unpolished exterior texture much like a real egg.   Something different and interesting.

Petrified Wood is a type of a fossil as it consists of fossil wood where all the organic materials have been replaced with minerals while retaining the original structure of the wood.  These minerals are most often Silicates such as Quartz.  Other minerals, Manganese, Iron and Copper, in the water or mud during the petrification process gives Petrified Wood a variety of color ranges: black - Carbon; green/blue - Copper; red/brown/yellow - Iron.  Petrified Wood can preserve the original structure of the wood in all its detail all the way down to the microscopic level.  Structures such as tree rings and the various tissues are often observed features.  Although Petrified Wood can be found worldwide, it is rather rare in larger quantities and at times can be difficult to obtain by the average collector.
