I am looking for someone that may be able to identify a slab of blueforest wood as to species of tree it came from.  I have a lot of this wood and just wondering if there are very many species of trees that petrified there, and if it is possible to figure out the species.  I'm thinking that the best way was to cut a thin slab that i could get pics of the cell structure.   The photos here are magnified many times _ i am not sure used used a little USB close up camera.  THere are three pics of the largest I can magnify the cells and one id a 3/4" square slab.  I cut it about 3/4mm thin and backlit it.

If anyone here is a master at this I am open to any and all suggestions as to how to determine species.
