    The rocks in your fish tank are definitely petrified wood. In this case the wood was replaced with quartz. The colors are due to a small amount of iron as an impurity. This colorful petrified wood in not found in the UK. However, there is petrified wood in the UK. Here is a link to one location:

    Most of the petrified wood on the market today comes from the United States, various places in South America and Africa.
