Agate House in Petrified Forest National Park, Arizona, United States

Pretty Fascinating Petrified Forest

Petrified wood rocks. It’s like wood, except it’s not: bazillions of years ago it became fossilized. The result are ridiculously sturdy, heavy, and garishly colorful objects that resemble tree trunks or bark popping up from the ground.

Wikipedia has more about the Petrified Forest National Park, and there’s also the Petrified Forest NP website by the NPS.
