A few more bits of agate and petrified wood and fern out of the tumbler.

Ive got a fair bit of the stuff mate, big and small
I used to go out hunting and collecting where ever i could
ONE DAY ... i will post some pics (its all in a storage shed)
My favourite piece (and my mums wink ) is bigger than a football , the actual size isnt the kicker, i jigsawed it back together with supaglue after digging it all out , the biggest piece is about 3”
I do know where there are a couple of huge CHUNKS about 3’ x2’ ops but no way of getting them out
I could probably find a link to info on a local ‘petrified forrest’ if your interested (my info was from the library ... its a building that contains lots of books playful
I used to take my kids to the foreshore and walk across the branches of a giant tree in the rock plateau when conditions allowed

That would have been quite a jigsaw puzzle! Interested in the petrified forest up your way if you have any info on it. I've always had a thing for anything petrified, fossilised or just old.
Have you tried polishing any of those bits, looks like they would come up nice.
