Rectangular Petrified Wood Slab
Chinle Formation, Arizona
Stunning black and white coloration expresses the natural wood texture of the interior of a once-living prehistoric tree. The tree's cellulose was replaced by minerals (mostly silicates) while the original structure was preserved. Rust tones along the irregular edges, and natural fissures which were filled during fossilization add to the exquisite beauty of this specimen. Polished to a high gloss; suitable for use as a tabletop.
