Lot Details
Petrified Wood Log
Araucarioxylon arizonicum
Triassic
Chinle Formation, Arizona

This marvelous 210 million-year-old petrified wood log section displays attractive rust red, black and cream tones on its end, which has been hand-polished to form. The chemistry of the groundwater, in which the original wood lay, produced its colors; carbon produces black and iron oxides produce red tones.
