Might be fossil palmwood on the left, but you got me on the other two.

The center one could be bumblebee jasper. Not sure about the one on the right...

Agree with palm on the left, center could be serpentine.
I'm sure I have seen the one on the right before, but cant recall what or where that was.
Might be leopard-skin, but the spots seem to well defined.

Hope you dont mind, will take the picture to a group of people who might have the answer for you.

There are many new types of incredible stone coming out of Indonesia the past few years. I follow different Indonesian stone cutters on the web  and am amazed at the virant unusual colors in the stones they are working. Think of Oregon about a thousand times over. Similar geology to eastern Oregon with a nascent middle class and increasing amounts of cutters to meet their and a certain amount of Chinese demand.

Thats why I would not be too surprised if the right piece would also be Palm. The rings are to well defined not to be of some organic origin.

Right now, it seems people who know Michael, tend to gravitate towards 3 different wood for the stones with the middle one being guessed chromium wood.

The right hand piece looks like a light colored peanut stone from Australia, if it comes that light colored.  Most i have seen is quite a bit darker, but the spots look really similar to the filled in tunnels of a prehistoric boring worm that is the cause of peanut wood.

Left and Right both palm.

Center jasper could be from a lot of places.
