Lot Details
Exceptional Petrified Wood Slab
Araucarioxylon arizonicum
Triassic
Chinle Formation, Arizona

The most desirable specimens of Arizona petrified wood are coveted for their dazzling color, exemplified by the brilliant rust-red and ochre displayed in this slab. Traces of the growth rings of the original living tree are visible toward the center of the slab and watercolor-like patches of ochre are seen. Natural irregular edges represent the periphery of the trunk of a large 210-million-year-old tree. Formed of silicates, this material is very hard and is, therefore, eminently suitable for use as a tabletop. The mirror-polished surface amplifies the magnificent colors.
Measures 90 x 64in
