Petrified Wood


This large slab of petrified wood features superb colourisation. From one side, a dark black interior radiates out into brown and bright yellow and orange. Coloured wood is much rarer than the pale colours normally associated with petrified material. The ring lines are quite clear and this specimen is from a full trunk or branch - not a fragment. It has also been polished on both sides. Fossil wood is extremely durable and hard material, and is very resistant to even steel knife scratching. It therefore can be quite a dramatic and functional piece - like a cheese board! Dimensions: 300mm widest point, 18mm thickness Treatments: Natural polish, no lacquer, polished both sides Age: Cretaceous, approximately 113,000,000 Location: Madagascar
