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 give 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.

Quartz is the second most common mineral in the Earth's continental crust.  It is mainly composed of Silica or Silica based minerals.  Although Quartz is known by a variety of names, the most important distinction between types of Quartz is that of macro-crystalline, individual crystals visible to the unaided eye, and micro-crystalline, where aggregates of crystals are only visible under high magnification.  There are many forms of Quartz including Chalcedony, Amethyst, Citrine, and Carnelian which are results of mineral impurities or heat treatments.

Marble is a metamorphic rock consisting of Limestone but composed mostly of Calcite.  It is used extensively for sculpture, building materials and has many decorative uses.  The pure white Marble is probably the most common form known, but the characteristic swirls and veins of many colored Marble varieties are usually due to various mineral impurities such as Clay, Silt, Sand, Iron Oxides or Chert.  This type of Marble will often have small animal like creature fossils throughout the matrix or media.

Aragonite is a Carbonate mineral that can occur in conjunction with Calcium Carbonates.  Aragonite differs from Calcite in the formation of the Crystal shapes which can be in lattice, crystal, columnar or fibrous in many different designs, shapes and sizes.  Aragonite will form in mollusk shells, oceans and salt water caves as inorganic precipitates called marine cements and speleotherms.  Ammolite is a form of Aragonite with impurities that make it iridescent and valuable as a gemstone.

It occurs naturally in colors of gold and blue.

Calcite is a Carbonate mineral that is most widely distributed on the Earth's surface.  It is a common constituent of sedimentary rocks with Limestone in particular.  A Calcite formation can take on many different shapes and sizes which is dependent on the location, ground water occurrence and temperature.  Calcite is usually white or colorless but can be gray, red, yellow, green, blue, violet, brown or black.  The deeper the color is usually indicative of the definitive impurities from the earth or water.

Rhyolite is an igneous, volcanic rock that is composed of Felsic, or Silicate minerals such as Silica, Aluminum, Sodium and Potassium. This material, also called Volcanic Tuft and Rainbow Rock actually began as volcanic ash spewed from the mouth of a volcano millions of years ago. This ash was exposed to heat and pressure that resulted in turning it to stone. The bright banded colors are a result of exposure to high concentrations of iron oxides. The material is similar to that of Granite, Pumice and Obsidian but due to the cooling process when formed, Rhyolite did not form any crystals, thus changing the texture of the material.

Agates mostly occur as nodules in volcanic rocks or waters containing silica in solution possibly derived from the decomposition of silicates in the lava.  The siliceous matter is deposited in regular layers resulting in the banded or striped formation.
