local fish store has them marked as petrified wood... it defiantly isn't but they matched so i bought them. Mods you can delete this thread if you'd like.

The second photo looks like Decomposed/Weathered/Rotten Granite. Also can be called Granite Saprolite. The individual grains become loosened as the granite dissolves from the elements.
