petrified wood is very heavy, i dont know how it compares to river rock, but its certainly much heavier than the usual stuff you find in stores. Rocks can be used for the aquarium if it doesnt react to acid tests. Pour some vinegar on a rock, if it fizzles, its no good, if nothing happens wash the rock and use it.
