Very cool rock! That looks nothing like the petrified wood I find in my area, but that doesn't mean it shouldn't look different in your area. My thinking is that it looks maybe like a slag or obsidian of some sort...maybe? It really does look like it has wood grain and wood color though! Heres a pic of a petrified stump from my area in central ND. Being not too far away over there in MN, I would assume yours would look fairly similar?

Looks like it to me.

I have a slice of this- someone told me it was Tiger Eye but I have no idea... I use it for my coffee coaster, but it has similar characteristics to yours.

Instant I saw the pic, I thought, Slag or some kind of igneous product.

My grandparents had a piece of petrified wood on their living room table. I have no idea what part of the country it came from since I've never heard of anyone finding any here. It looked exactly like that.

I would say it is petrified wood. I have a petrified wood that came from ND that looks nothing like the one DakotaBoy posted. I have a half dozen of them. I found a piece out on Rootok Island in AK too. There are no trees on Rootok and never have been.

MJM the earth has rotated on it[s axis several times, there was tropic trees on Elsemere Island and lots of petrified up there

Glaciation moves thing around and that is how it got down to you
Nice find

Petrified wood comes in as many forms as wooden wood.

Yours is a specimen.
