GAL527 MADAGASCAR PETRIFIED WOOD

$300.00

Here is a beautiful specimen of  petrified wood from Madagascar.  This awesome piece has nice wood grain highlights mixed in around the various and different Tan and Brown colors with accents of Orange and Red with a very nice design.  The gorgeous piece has a nice polish on both sides bringing out the wonderful character of this specimen from any angle. It also has neat open cavities that go clear through and visible from both sides as well as neat subtle crystal areas. The outer edge is natural with a very cool irregular shape and texture.  The lovely petrified wood measures 16 3/8″ wide x 15 3/8″ x 7/8″ thick and weighs over 14 lbs.  Again, pictures don’t do this fantastic Petrified Wood specimen proper justice.

Description

Petrified Wood is a type of a fossil as it consists of fossil wood where all the organic materials have been replaced with minerals while retaining the original structure of the wood.  These minerals are most often Silicates such as Quartz.  Other minerals, Manganese, Iron and Copper, in the water or mud during the petrification process gives Petrified Wood a variety of color ranges: black – Carbon; green/blue – Copper; red/brown/yellow – Iron.  Petrified Wood can preserve the original structure of the wood in all its detail all the way down to the microscopic level.  Structures such as tree rings and the various tissues are often observed features.  Although Petrified Wood can be found worldwide, it is rather rare in larger quantities and at times can be difficult to obtain by the average collector.
