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.

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.
