I found this rock where there was a lot of petrified wood but this does not resemble any of the many pieces of petrified wood that I have collected.

It has the shape of a face, in my opinion. It has twelve holes in total, in which two that go through it. I have done nothing with it, it is as I found it.

Wish I had more information to share but this is all I can tell you about it. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

  • $\begingroup$ Sorry about the lack of information, it's my first time here and wasn't sure of how to use the site. The rock is not magnetic I found it in an area where there was a lot of petrified wood( but it's not petrified wood ) it's about an inch and a half long, the holes in it are as I found the rock, I have done absolutely nothing with it other then put a string into one of the holes that go through it to wear it around my neck. Other then this I do not have anymore information on it. $\endgroup$ – Lemont Mar 13 '17 at 19:04
  • $\begingroup$ You also need to take more and better pictures (lighting and focus!). You don't have enough reputation to put in many pictures, so just put them on a generic image hosting site and put the links in your question. Someone else will edit them in. $\endgroup$ – Jan Doggen Mar 13 '17 at 22:04

  • $\begingroup$ Hi again I looked up shipworms and they say they live in saltwater I live nowhere near any salt water the closest is 1500 kms at least away. the color in the pictures is what it is I have never found another piece of petrified wood the same color and none in the area have holes in it,.it was close to a river that I found it though all comments are appreciated right or wrong thanks $\endgroup$ – Lemont Mar 14 '17 at 17:04

I think your 'happy face rock' is created by holes from fossil coral, crinoid stems, petrified wood, my guess is coral.

Here are a couple of unique pieces from my collection.
