SKU: F.WOOD.3 Category:


This large slab of petrified wood features strong patterning with a wonderful natural colouring of pale yellow merging into bright orange outer rings. 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: 270mm widest point, 16mm thickness
Treatments: Natural polish, no lacquer, polished both sides
Age: Cretaceous, approximately 113,000,000
Location: Madagascar
